I've heard that only the green keypads of the black cells are cracking. True?
I was told that the problem is that green color that interacts with the material, not the material itself. I mean, there's multiple color choice, so does anybody has a yellow, white or purple phoone? With(out) cracked keypads?
Hey. I'm from Portugal and I was thinking about buying this cell, but the people from the store said that it was better not to, because the keys would crack. The thing is that I really love it, but I was going to purchase the purple one. Is it the same and is it going to happen to that one too?
Please answer. Byez ^^
can people with the white phone comment on how they like it? i realize that the black one has had a lot of problems with the keys cracking.
It's a very good and nice looking phone. My keys broke 3 days after first usage. Warranty covered it, but I'm not glad reading the comments that keys broke, again and again...
It costs pretty much, for phone with this big manufacturing mistake.
i have this phone and it is really really really lovely it have d best features and slim and sexy and it is d best phone i ever had sony have to come out with something better than this for me to change
sony refused to fix my phone and sent me an unbranded, unlocked W580i as a replacement, they did not provide a reason why?
i have a week31 green, and my 2 and 3 keys cracked a couple of days ago (about 1.5 months of usage)
it doesnt affect the performance of the phone at all, just cosmetics. i think the crack makes the keys easier to press actually (lol). dropped my once, didnt break or anything, but scratched my screen.
main complaint i have is that the phone feels kind of unstable when open.
overall, a good phone, it's a real attention getter... just treat it gently and you'll be fine till your keys crack... haha
i got probs wit the suppliers 2. they gave a white one. i didnt even know they had awhite one. i wanted a green one. does anyone know how to put music on it? when i press transfer on disc to phone it says no target device found.
the screen going black isnt an isolated occurance, its apparently pretty popular with sony ericsson. my phone did it (this model) and my sisters of a previous model did it. my keys cracked the week i got it and i'm not an uber texter OR caller. i dont know i need to take it and return it w/ the warranty AGAIN
The Sony Ericsson S500i is a very good mobile phone. I got mine about two months ago and it works fine, but there is one thing about it that i don't like is the material they used to make the key pad. Four buttons on mine cracked horizontally in half and more are continuing to crack. I wanna know how can I fix that.
This phone has mass production faults. If you are going to get this phone then dont get the green because it's keys will crack again n again. SE says it happens due to some chemical reaction.
I bought this phone one week ago and now i have mobile phone with two keypad cracked. phone is stil great and even if the keypad is cracked it is in use as it never anything happened.
Just phone is less beatufiful :(
I hope my warranty will stand for this.
So anyone know where you can buy a replacement keypad to replace yourself? My keypads have been sent in for warranty a couple of times, each time the keypad feels better and lasts 2-3 weeks longer than the last one did but then ultimately starts to crack. Phone is still great though, just not as beautiful, hope there are replacement pads at stores sometime soon b/c shipping times w/ warranty works is so inconvenient.
i was going to get this phone..but i didnt want to get the same phone as my cuzn.. and im glade i didn't get it..
-less than a month 9 buttons cracked
-small buttons in front are inconventient
- altho speakers are kinda loud.. songs on the highest setting dont sound clean
+cool features (like the wallpaper changing day/night, the lights on the side)
+ design light, smooth slider, and pretty compact
... i say dont get this phone ...
and wait for an upgrade of this series (or something) .. as for me i am still waiting/searching for a phone with my criteria
my keypad also cracked, but i know that this is a problem with the first phones. the newest are all ok
