Frustrated, 23 Nov 2008I have had d DAMN phone for less than 3months and the slide thingy is broken, is there a way i... moreI was in the same position as you a few months ago. I purchased the phone unlocked and in a very short time the slider key had cracked into pieces. from what I've read online this problem (although common) isn't covered by warranty and it will cost about 20 something USD to have fixed.
I found it much easier (and cheaper) to buy a replacement slide bar on ebay and install it myself.
Not very satisfied.
I purchased this phone over the summer unlocked at full price and in a few months the slide key had cracked and fallen off. I installed a new slide bar but in a couple days the same thing began to happen.
This situation is much like that of the Sony ericsson's cracking key pad. The manufactures just didn't choose a material that could stand up to the every day pressure being applied to the phone.
A lot of people are raving about this phone because its one of the better sliders from T mobile but honestly I would read more into it before being lured in by the cheap price tag.
Well guys, I just bought my 5610 and i'm loving it. It haves all the stuff I need in a cellphone. Here in Brazil the phone is a bit expensive, but if it broke we have a nokia specialized assistance here.
In my opinion it's a great phone, but the keyboard is really a little bit delicate...
I do not recommend to buy 5610, the keyboard it's very delicate and it tends to take off itself, slider key is extremely fragile and quickly broke, the screen fails easily.
im really satisfied with this phone.. it just hanged 10 times since i bought it(april 2008) and i have neved suffered any problems with it, only 1, but that was my fault(i broke the screen)
but mine is still working fine.. the speakers sound cool, and the slider key its still fine =)
This phone is below my expectations paid full price for the thing and it freezes and shuts off. It also decides when it will let the keys work. The speakers on this phone are extremely low and even on speaker its hard to hear the other person speaking. Will not recommend to anyone.
im not completely satisfied with 5610 . i consider it also one of the stupidest choices i could have made it costed 22000pakistan rupees. my slider key broke with one month use even though i was extremely carefull with it i had to get it fixed and the thing freezes every time i try to download a couple of songs together i was using sony ericson k750 and w810 and they were completely solid sets so i was not worried that a part of them will fall out . i would never suggest anyone to buy this phone.

I have had d DAMN phone for less than 3months and the slide thingy is broken, is there a way i can replace it? It is a contract phone:-(
I have had d fone for less than 3 months and it freezes and blackouts all d time!! really hate it!! WORST CHOICE OF MY LIFE
yea its a "handle with care" phone...
looks and feels good in the hand. display is top notch! but a finger print magnet and the dedicated music or radio slider key feels a bit flimsy. better to use a shortcut to activate music player. battery is ok, not the best but definitely better than average... no other drawbacks as far as i've seen...
i would not really reacommend the purchase of this phone. it wears off easily and blacks out frequently.
