personally i would choose the S500 over the U600 anyday, i work in a phone shop and am flooded with U600 problems.
got a week23 one in the 3rd week of July
the #8 key finally cracked
just wanted to know before i get it..i want to get it in the new contrasted copper color. thanks
ok so what about the camera? is it any good and is the video recorder any good?
also i heard that they have improved the keypad so it doesnt crack any more, is that true? i would like to buy one today (2nd september).
or do u think that the samsung u600 is a better phone?
would be much much appreciated.
So I've got the phone for over 2 months now. Everything about the phone is great, except for two things. I pair it with my Plantronic 665 often, and I noticed that whenever connecting a call, it takes a bit longer than other bluetooth phones. Second, I don't text often, but my "3" and "4" key are cracked down the middle. Outside of these problems, it's honestly a great phone. However, anyone know where I can get the keypad fixed? I did buy the phone off a vendor on eBay. THanx.
So, after going through two cracked keypads, id recently got my S500i. 3rd attempt with a fixed keypad. and its been a lil over a week and so far. no cracks! same abuse i gave the phone since i got it. and finally theres no cracked keys. haha wow :D week25 btw
i also got the problem that is the keypad crack.then i only but it for three week only!the worse thing is still cannot be repair or replace the keypad..very sad!n quite dissapointed because this is my first sony Ericsson handphone!so far the design is good!
hope can improve the quality of the keypad button before sold out to the market!!because its really very poor quality!hope can take note about this matter.
I work for a phone shop and this is one of my favourite phones at the moment. The screen saver is amazing and the music and camera are good although the sound quality could be improved. No key cracks on this one the only one I have seen having them problems is the w580i. If your thinking of getting a phone and you like sony get this one.
Miraculously, i had my s500i for 2 months without anything going wrong. But the thing looks so fragile. i can even see the sim card when it's slide open. but other than that, it's flawless. i'm pleased :)
the phone's specifications here in gsmarena say that you can instant message
but on sonyericsson.com it doesn't?
and by instant messaging, do they mean servers like AIM & MSN?
You gotta buy the
Memory Stick Micro (M2)
But i'm not sure on what capacity the phone can hold upto......
prob 2gb... DONT QUOTE ME ON THIS!
i was wondering if i could use my san disk micro sd. its a 1g.. but it doesnt seem to fit? which memory stick do i gotta buy?
i really like this cool phone. but my friend wants it aswell. she doesn't want me to get it. wot shall i do?
I have heard that SE is aware of the keypad problem and that phones manufactured as of August will have the new keypads. So, those of you that might have purchased your hpone in August might still be part of the retailers old inventory with the keypad problem.
