Is the key cracking problem found on all S500's or just certain colors... ie: mysterious green???
can you lock the phone with a password? either the whole phone or can you lock certain applications like the messages, photos, call logs etc?
Awsome phone! I have been using it for about a year and i love everything about it.
I have had absolutley no problems with it and its never skipped a beat except for some of the keys "cracking" but thats something i can live with as im obviously not as picky as some. It dosent effect how you use the phone and you can hardly even see the cracks!
best phone ive ever had :P
I got this phone yesterday and so far am very happy with it. I read all the reviews and opinions here, and was slightly concerned about the cracking keypad but decided to go for it anyway.
THhe design is brilliant, I love it. My favourite phone in that respect by far. Everything from the themes, the mood lights at the sides, the shape, texture: brillaint!
The phone doens't feel that flimsy, but because it's so light and thin I can understand people's concerns.
The call sound quality is brilliant, and the camera is good enough for me.
The one thing which lets it down a bit is the battery life I think. I've had this problem with most Sony Ericssons, but is probably my fault since I'm never off my phone!
So overall, for me the S500i is a 9/10 :)
*The only thing I would like to know is if there's a way to lock the phone as soon as you slide it down if you're doing something. eg. on the internet, then slide it down and it closes everything and locks?*
Yes i get those problems too. I have my phone for a year now and some buttons cannot respond anymore

They sell a very few out in the store but you can find plenty online.
If your keypad cracked sign this!
awful phone. I have poblems with the battery charging and also the button at the top of this phone is broken. I have owned this phone for a few hours now. I would recommend a D900 over this anyday. Oh and they keys are quite small and spaced too close together.
