i bought this phone and i am in love with it. it is so cool and pretty.. i have no problems with the key pad or anything. i love this phone. it lights up at night when people call me.
A LOT of my friends have this phone and ALL of their keys have cracked in less than a month! It's still a nice phone none the less.
i am in the middle of choosing what phone to buy. and this is my primary choice. but all this comments about broken keypads really scares me. especially that here in the phils texting is really the source of communication. but i am the type of person who really takes good care of my phone. can anybody justify this? or what other phone can u sugest that i will include in my choices? please i need opinions or advice or whatever that will open my mind regarding this. thanks.
i bought this phone S500i back in may last year, since then im on my second one.ive found with both phones they would crash all the time,then they would turn themselves of and on all the time,then the keys cracked on me and it not the way i text as was suggested within the forum,i got fed up with my first one so sent it back they sent me a new one in place as i was still in my 28 days. this took about two week.i had this one for a while within two or three weeks the keys cracked again now after a few month yet again it started to turn it self of and is freezing everytime i go to use it. i love the phone it self and does look nice but i wont be getting this model again. i think SE should look into this and get the prob sorted
I have the phone for 2 months already and the keypad still ok. Best phone ever.
Gotta have it.
Should i get this fone coz it has so many cool features and it looks so good.
please tell me coz im gonna get a fone soon please tell me qukily!!
its doesent have anything with the pressing on the keypads! Sony Ericsson did make the first bach of this phone with bad keypads, but not anymore. ive been in contact with SE and talked to them. ive also have the newest w580i and s500i. and i dont have any problems with the keypads at all! i sell these phones everyday i norway, and i have been testing them to make sure they are alright! you can press as you usally would press the buttons on the new kind of this phone! not a problem at all..
cheers from norway
excellent phone, it really leaves the w580i behind, the only thing i will warn people is that i bought two of them, gold and black, after a couple of weeks, each button on the keypad cracked. broke my heart but all round excellent phone.
I purchased this S500i in ice purple like 4 months ago. For people who are concerned with the keypad issue, it is a matter of how one presses the keys. I used text messaging on a regular based and so far it seems the buttons still haven't crack like it was sad. Seems that my fingers are small, so I can tell you that if you have smaller fingers, it is easier to text. Overall, the phone was very good in all aspect. I love the screen compared to my other samsung cell screen. Pictures are exceptionally clear. And best yet, you can make your own themes the way you like it. Everchanging theme is the best on this though. I leave it on that theme, cuz it changes to the seasons and time. Just like on New Year's Day when it displays fireworks. Definitely a phone to collect if you like SE phones.
I got this phone is last Oct.I'm so luv this phone.screen very beauty & every month or holiday,change special screen!!
Got the s550i in purple for christmas, you can cutomise nearly everything on it, ie. wallpapers, themes, mp3 ringtones, message alert sounds, a very good phone for the price.
