Well, I must have a complete dud, because I have had so many problems with this phone. Even basic functions such as being able to recognise incoming messages/calls from people whose details are in the address book seem beyond this phone. In the address book where it is supposed to have the Groups function where you can move your contacts into different groups, it moves the wrong numbers!!! It often crashes when I receive a phone call. The ear piece has very poor sound quality so it can be very difficult to understand the person at the other end. The jostick will often decide not to work in one direction. I could go on and on.... This is not a good phone.
I look after my phone and it looks in very good condition, despite the frequent urges I have to throw it against a wall, of which it would certainly not survive, being quite a fragile design. These faults I have explained are not due to it being roughly treated.
But like I said, maybe I'm just the unlucky one who got the dud.
i had this fone for more than 2 years it was actually superb!!!the cam has great resolution than nokia..I love this phone..highly recommended!!!

i hv use d phone 4 the past 1 yr & i reaaally satisfied wth colour quality an all except the joystick getting sticky & the memory 2 little ..wish had card slot...value 4 money dis phone...dont use gprs..use data cable is da best
Everything about this phone is good except for the pathetic joystick, already toooo many problems, and its been only 6 months. Memory is low, but i can live with that !
Over all K508i is a good mobile.Specially the sounds provided are extra ordinary.Display (screen size is good) so far as design is concerned its appealing.if I discuss some weaknesses of this set battery time and memmory is very much in need of improvement.

It is a cute, fancy & handy set.It is working satisfactorily after passing about 5 months, but joystick is the problem, sometime it sticks & does not respond, camera result is good in days times only. In night times, it captures dotted pictures / video. Moreover during capturing video / picture, if camera is slightly moved or captured object moves then result is very bad. The colors depth is good but I would be happy if it is enhanced. Memory is not sufficient. Audio quality is too good.
I bought this phone in Nov '04, and it has been serving me well during this period.
For the pice of this phone ($148 without trading an old one), the features were well packed. MP3 ringtone (unfortunately only for calls, and not for sms too), a mp3 player, vga camera..
Main gripe is with its charger connection... it feels so flimsy!
PPL i have had this phone for 7 months now and this is what i think of it.
It is great phone for value with great graphicaly enhanced menues and great animated themes. Camera (was) pretty good when the phone was new but with all the new 2MP camera tech its not as great. joystick does play up after a while depending how u take care off it. it could do with more memory if your a heavy phone fanatic like me but overall its a good phone. sony ericsson is the way to.
PS dont get a motorola lol
This is a very stupid mobile. it just fell down only 2 times suddenly the cam stopped working.i am worryign alot for buying this mobile..
i am using this phone for the past 4 months,
the features r good. but the joystick sucks. sometimes its just won't respond. the camera is ok. overall i'll rate at 7.5.
to everyone in india-your 508 shows only 8mb because of the 2 hindi videos and 2 hindi mp3's that came along with the phone.they dont get deleted.even if you delete them you dont get any extra space.when you master reset the phone they get back into their place.There's also hanging problems with this phone.all because of the firmware.so dont buy this phone until the firmware is changed.bye
i have some problem in k508i regarding its phone book,when i want to reach sharjeel and i want to press "h" after "s" it directly goes to shujaat, can any one let me know how i change it in to standard form.
well it shows 8mb bcuz there is already some content in your phone including wallpapers and sounds and videos. isnt it very obvious?
I own it faor the past 8 months i have no problems but smetimes the phone hangs up and i have to reset it---- iheard most people are having this problem anywaz a very good memeory is to low and we cannot shut the shutter speed off i give at an 8. I'am waiting for k610i
