i have a fren who bought this phone. Basically after few months of using it the slide mechanism has worn out and the top part of the phone shakes (after the phone is slid open). I was told that this was SE's first attempt at the S series. Is it so?? Is an S510 coming out( or at least something similar.) By the way the phone has the sexiest lights my eyes have set on. SO i cant wait for a similar phone with better slide mechanism.
If you know more abt this pls email me.
lol w810i better than this fone? ok let me get this straight.. w810i has crappy 176X220 outdated screen VS my awesome 240X320 screen.. w810i is a chunky flat fone compared to this sleek looking slider, haha clearly this fone kicks its ass :P sorry cookie aka elle =P
hey david, you said you got ur phone from virginmobile in australia? Im just wondering where and if it costs $199 on pre-pay, cos i couldnt find it on their site, and i really want this phone! thnx
okay guys, i now have my black & green s500i so im a very happy person. been using it for about a day now, keypad feels VERY solid.. they might have actually changed the keypad (well im hoping). no signs of cracks yet and doubt there will be. My model is a week 40! i was stoked to see they actually released models that late in production so perhaps another plus. What can i say, im used to Nokia's and always have been but this fone has won me over to the dark side, the sound quality is amazing. Loudest fone ive eva had, the camera is super functional, easy to take pics and has a great thumbnail viewer. I got myself a 1gb card and yet to fill it, one downside i must say is sometimes the camera wont actually take a photo and i have to restart it. happened a few times so far, hope theres a firmware update soon. speaking of which u can actually update ur fone over the internet which is a MAJOR plus, no more pesky phone stores meddling with my fone :) overall id have to give the fone a solid 9.5/10.. it really is quite a machine ^_^
AS IT READS: the built in memory is 12 MB!!!
You can get upto a 2 GB memory card-M2- and expand the storage!
Please read carefully.
to answer ur questions:
1. Yes the keypad cracks. read comments below.
2. sound quality is better than nokia's
3. 12mb internal memory. you have to buy the external memory upto 4Gb separately.
4. yes, the theme chages depending on the time/season.
5. for me the picture quality is decent enough. :)

thanks kanga and beoda! my phone arrives next week. can't. wait.
i did speak to a sony ericsson representative on the phone, and she told me that the keypad repair under the warranty will largely depend on how detailed the receipt for the phone is. basically they are looking for proof of purchase, regardless of whether the phone was made for the european or chinese market. she said that the receipt should have the IMEI (?) number for the phone, the name of the retailer, and my name on the receipt. (there were more details she mentioned, but i do not have the list in front of me.) i'm hoping that i'm safe with the white/contrast copper phone, and that the ebay retailer is legit enough to provide a detailed receipt.
beoda, thanks for the updates. you can find out the week on the back label, where the battery goes. the number should appear as "07W--".
great phone. anyone have any idea how to setup the "My Friends" so that i can use instant messaging???
jky - I'm from Australia, not sure about ebay. maybe someone else has experience to have phone fixed from ebay. You can try email SE as I suggested, they might come to the party.
