I have the same problem, the phone nice but key pad so badly. I need your guy help, How or where do I go fix this phone. since my phone is s500i, that is international phone. but I'm live in CA, US. thanks
Hi..i'm planning to get this phone, and i'm wondering are the keypads changed/improved aready? or are they still the same (tat keeps cracking)?
Need ur comments pls..thanks :)
awhhh..mann- was just going to buy it and you guyz, js' cracked down my plans with the phones' cracked keypads- huh!
one problem with this phone. The buttons break in the center. it isnt pretty when that happens.
Pls see link below for some pictures of the phone with the cracks...
I'm not making the phone look bad.. It is just a FACT.
This phone is one of the greatest ones out there I got it after N95 , iphone and then S500i .
it has no problems at all , so people stop making it look bad just cuz one of you broke his pad . . . .
i can tolerate the keys cracking....but mine right now is starting to chip off!!!!
i have been waiting for 2 months now. the ericsson store told me that they don't have yet the "improved keypads" and the ones that they have are still the same old one... I dont even know if SONY ERICSSON really have acknowledged the problem and if they really said anything about replacing it.. do you guys have heard or read something about it? can you give me a link? thanks!
The review said the keypad problem was solved, but I doubt it. Mine cracked after 2 months of usage, and if GSMArena doesn't use it constantly, they will never know about the cracking problem.
if you go pictures in this site, at the bottom, what theme is it? I really want it.
i wanna get this phone but from what i read there are problems with the keys and that may be too much of one.but great phone nice features great design.
Do the buttons crack and if yeah can you still text and use them or do yo have 2 get new buttons?
Same happened to mine phone, have it for 1,5 months now and I discovered a few days ago that two buttons had cracked and that while I had been so careful with my phone!! I brought it back today and they are going to send it back to SE, which means i have to miss my phone for a few weeks :(
i believe it's only the black n green one that has the buttons that crack,i have the gold version and i dont think the buttons are cracking anytime soon but yes durability is of question.
KEYPAD PROBLEM SOLVED.. PLEASE CHECK THE REVIEW.
