I've enjoyed trouble free usage of this phone for the past 18 months. I've got big hands and type texts while I'm driving without looking at my phone once!
I love the size and was willing to make some sacrifices.
3G reception is bad in my area so video calling is out, but I'm on the internet and gmail everyday.
A few small comments:
The USB data cable connection is very badly designed and does not make contact anymore. PC and headset, does not make contact anymore. Luckily my charger still works. I would prefer small usb on the phone.
I want to assign different ringtones for different profiles, but can't.
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2008its a great mobile. but i want to know how to use the front camera to take ur own pic.U can't use d front camera for pics only for video calls.
The w880i is a g8 fone. Bt probs startd when it does nt detect ma sim until i remove ma memory card, well dat corrected itself. Den i had probs wit ma games nd applics dey jus kip sayin 'operation failed'. I got it flashd, it workd bt nt perfectly! Then d fone goes off wit every little shock! As little as pressin d keypads too hard! or wen it gets overworkd lyk browsin 4 long hrs! Does anybody xperience dis same probs?. I'm tinkin of gettin d w910 though. Bt minus dis probs. D w880i is great nd i luv it!
This is a really great slimline phone but does have some drawbacks... There's no zoom on the still camera, no light/flash facility. Its too easy to switch the thing off due to poor placement of the on/off switch, the speaker although loud is very 'tinny' and there's no radio on it...!!! How can you call it a walkman phone without a radio and poor loudspeaker? On a good note its much quicker than the K750 and no real software issues that i can find. SE have replaced that stupid joypad with buttons so it does'nt wear out which is a major thing for me.

im going to buy this phone in few weeks please reply me if this phone has something wrong in it!!!
mafia, 05 Oct 2008im planning to buy either this w880 or w580 any suggestions??please reply im going to buy 1 of... moreGo for W880i, Since the slide feature of W580i might give problems in the long run. both the phones are good but 580i is more bulkier.
Plus W880i is 3G without EDGE & also without radio.
But who cares abt radio until you have the full music library with you.
W580i will giv little less battery life while listening to walkman in comparison with W880i.
Go for W880i its full value for money.
Hey guys the phone is very nice. Better than I had expected.
I hav been using this for abt 2 weeks now.
The walkman quality is superb. Superb means superb.
If you want the ultimate walkman experience then buy HPM-85. I hav bought it myself on the day of purchase of mobile. The handfree HPM-70 which comes along with the pack is nothing in comparison with HPM-85.
Even though HPM-85 looks big, but it does not consume more battery at all. Its just a fraction more. Nothing else.
Even though this cell does not have an auto focus camera, I have got very satisfactory images at just 2MP. Remember 2 keep your hand as still as possible while clicking. Then it gives full 2MP clarity equivalent to that of 2MP cybershot phone. I didn't find any thing wrong with the camera at all.
Its slim factor is its unique feature.
Its loud speaker is a bit low in sound.
But its very loud when connected with earphones at 80% volume with no loss or rupturing of sound at 100 % volume.
That's what walkman is made for right.
The battery life is also great. Lasted for 1-1/2 to 2 days.
It consumes a lot of battery power during calls & plus the scree remains on throught the call.
It does not have photolight.
In all a great phone for music lovers with good camera & battery life & don't forget HPM-85.
im planning to buy either this w880 or w580 any suggestions??please reply im going to buy 1 of this phone in days!
mafia, 30 Sep 2008i just want to know is this phone easy to use and long lasting and is this speaker loud enough... moreIt's really easy to work with it.The menu is in good order,but the loud speaker is not very good.Actually i don't use it because you can't hear anything even in silent place!May be this is the only one remark about the functions in that phone.
i just want to know is this phone easy to use and long lasting and is this speaker loud enough to hear in crowded places
