I had this phone but i had lost it. This is a really good phone with all its features and is very user friendly. It is also very easy to text and has many great options.
after 3 months the phone is dead, battery wont charge and turns off randomly.
I've been so careful with this thing too, flimsy piece of junk! avoid
i recieved this phone as a gift last year(oct. i think) and till now I have no complainings. indeed, after having a nokia, i was a little bit dissapointed about the life of the battery, but, in rest, it is ok. i love the shape and the colours. and until this moment - no crash of the keyboard or no fuzz in the microfone. maybe i was lucky. or i don't use it so hard as others(only 3-4 h of talking everyday :D)
i bought the s500i at xmas and have had to go back to the shop quite a few times. the first problem was when i rang someone they couldnt hear me but i could hear them, they repaired it but when i got it back it was a bit fuzzy on the phone. then the phone fell apart and i had to go back again, they issued me with a new phone yesterday but when i got it home it had the same problem as the other where people cannot hear me when i am on a call so i have to go back yet again to get it sorted!! it is acually a good phone if this problem could just get sorted!!!
2tk6 its nothing to do with dropping phone or pressing to hard i havent done either an mine cracked i didnt see mine crack i woke up next day an it had appeared it was simple as that its the phone not the users it should be recalled worst phone ive ever had im trying to get rid of mine nobody wants it!
The point is they do change it an it still breaks even with gentle use or hardly any use an who wants a phone that spends most of its time in service centre i dont its a waste of money
Thanks for some tips or opinion write here cause I plan to buy S500i cause i swap my S500. Well the best thing for those owner of this phone that complaining their ke button broke...... why don't you guys to bring it in Sony Ericsson service center it has a warranty but it depends on how you used it.
I had a Sony Ericsson same model and same case the key was crak or brake so I bring it to the center and they change as new....
I bought this cell phone 2 weeks ago, the design and the lights were very nice.
Until the keypad cracked! right two days ago. I was so... *speechless*
If the officer said, "oh don't worry it won't crack, it depends on how you use it"
I rarely use it and I'm not a barbaric in typing text. but still it's crack!

hi i have an s500i, when i send text msgs, i can't see the words.. before the background for the text msges were black, but now it's white and the words are white and i can't see what i've typed is there something i can do?
this phone is a piece of junk, keys gets cracked, and i dropped my phone once and the phone split into pieces, so i had to place the pieces back together. (the case broke off, the screen came off, the buttons, 3 pieces from the back) ... i would not recomend buying this phone.. it's not worth it.
I really liked the phone primarily bec of the way it looks and it feels in my hands. Considering quality issues of course is a given but i'm fed up with SE. trying to have it replaced takes months! theyd say it would take just a week but my warranty is almost expired for heaven's sake! I'm already considering replacing them myself, and probably modding the phone's keypads. just don't know where to get the parts... =)
ive had phone a few months, yeah looks awesome but keypad is all cracked, looks bad and now screen is black. but sony ericsson says 3 weeks to fix and i pay shipping and no loaner...wtf? cool looking phone but DEFINATLY NOT WORTH IT!!!
I really think that this phone would be perfect if it weren't for all of these quality issues. I took a chance and ordered one anyways with a one year warranty in case any problems come up which I'm pretty sure will. GSMArena, I think you guys should really contact Sony Ericsson and get these problems fixed because if they told you they already were fixed then that's just BS. It would be for their benefit as well since almost every website now has numerous warning signs deterring hopeful buyers away.
