I'm a cell phone technician, I would like to know what color is the phone that doesn't have anymore problem. ~Yellow/spring yellow is the phone that doesn't have problem, especially on keypad~. I try press hard on the keypad, no cracking.
To those whose keypad crack-
The phone is fragile when you press hard, and because it's made of plastic/glue. If you press in the center of each keypad, and make sure your hand is not wet or sticky. It's gonna be find. One thing when you text message, try not to text fast. This phone is not a good idea to text fast because the keypad doesn't lay flat like Motorola. Sony Ericsson is pretty reliable and last long, unless for those who text hard, fast, careless. Any question, write back here. You know my name.
Happy for those who like it, wish every problem you are experiencing will fix soon.
I thought this phone is one of the worst then i ever seen, no special options, i bought it in high price with in one week it has been gone down 3 thousand. no infrared, no internal memory with out memory card u cant operate it.too delicate. dont go for outer looks. i dont know how this sony erricsion people cheat the public like this.
the FIRST batch of this phone did have problems, but not anymore. im selling these phones everyday, and im trying them out my self, so there is no problem anymore! and if the screen blacksout and etc, its because of a software problem, this is very natural among cellphones, even new ones, and old ones! The keypad its now much better, and we dont have any problems with those we have in storage at this point. i realy love this phone, its great! i say go for it! just because someone had bad luck doesent mean you shouldnt buy this phone. cheers
I am going to buy one, but i saw alot of command about the key paid ckracked. Now its really hard for me to make up my mind. So anyone please give some advice?
Sony Ericsson S500 is a really cool lookingphone i think i will get1
well i bought this phone last month and it is a great phone overall... but what is killing me is the keypad...
the first time, it cracked after 4 weeks, got it replaced by service center for free. then again after 2 weeks it cracked... got it replaced again... and now after 10 days, it has cracked again...
any permamanent soultion for this?? coz the fone is so great that i dont wanna throw it away!
happy, it might just be your connection. In my opinion, the phone has a great frontal design. The back of it doesn't seem to look as good.
I've had the phone for about 4 months too. Still no problems at all.
my wife have been using S500i for only 1 month++ and the keypad for button 1, 3 and 7 already cracked and u can see the cracked line so obvius... but ll not effect the performance of the phone. just destroy the beauty of this phone. SE QA team must made a more durable keypad for the 2nd batch.
Is This Phone any good or not because imma purchase it i like the colour.
This phone is trash!!! The bluetooth doesnt receive only sends, audio cuts off, screen goes blank and i update 10 times formatted 3 times .... NO USE
1.)First just go to Google.com
2.) then type Sony Ericsson S500 games, there you can downlaod your games even your theme,video,wllpapers.
does S.E S5001 is hav great handphone ?? Y so many people say the keypad cracking ?? some 1 can tell me is that true ??
I wasn't a big fan of sliding phones, but S500i was an exception for me. The green & black looks great together.
This phone is slimmer than a razer, and as compact as a flip phone. The camera takes nice pictures.
My favorite has to be the changing color lights on the sides of the phone - the color of the wallpaper changes daily to match with the lights as well.
I have no problem with my S500i so far - my keypad is just fine. Worst case senerio? purchase a new keypad for couple dollars.
This phone is compact, sleek, unique, &light.
Wanna buy it now?
Yeah, i see you nodding. ;D
I bought this phone yesterday and it's awesome. I don't have keypad cracking problem. I love the everchanging theme that changes color and screen based on time and date. I love the light that displays when phone ringing.
i find this phone one of the coolest and stylish ones i've ever seen.. i might be getting it but seeing all these comments worry me..
does all the keypads usually crack even though if u did not press very hard? or isit due to long term usage then it'll cracK? if it's few months old does it starts to cracK? thanx.
I was wondering If it had Picture Edit ?
And if its like a normal sized phone ?
i use the 580i and i have the same problems with the buttons cracking...but it doesnt affect the capabilities of this phone at all-ericsson makes some pretty awesome models
