I bought one from ebay this year, delivered from china, probably reconditioned one.
one lasts for 1-2 month, then no longer possible restart; second one last for 2-3 month, dead finally also by a slight knock to ground, then no screen.... I used to love all it has, but d***m, with these failures i won't step any more on it!! i still will replace by another phone No-smartphone to use daily life! *sign* anyhow W980's quality really not robust, fragile, that's what i feel
Great Phone in my opinion if related to styling. Not for the one's who prefer features more than Style. If Your looking for a Music Phone with some Style, then this is definitely the one to go for. Though, be aware if Your Phone gets damaged, it might not be repaired again as the Parts have been discontinued. Just recently bought a piece from Ebay.
I really love this phone brand and I wish sony could upgrade the software to suit the latest phone app environment. A single headset pin would be a good idea. It still remains the best phone I have ever used and I still need it.
my original charger was not working. someone gave me a chinese charger ( the ones having 10 different pins). i charged my phone with that. that worked for 1 month and then the charger wasn't functioning. that man took the charger and told me to have fixed it. i gave charge to my W980 with that and then finally the next morning i figure it out that my phone is not getting on. can you please tell me what is the Problem and how can i fix it
0ne of the best s.e walkman phones, ive been using this for 5 years, s.e rocks!

Speakers are very good and not even the extreme humidity of the Azores is able to ruin them.
This model is aesthetically beautiful, but unfortunately have some fatal weakness, such as the speakers (which have low quality, prone to damage), and the main software which is installed in the internal storage, which also prone to become corrupt due to bad performance of the internal storage. Other than its glossy appearance which attracts fingerprints, this phone is quite okay la.
its looks really awesome. if sony continues selling it i wll surely buy this one
