Come on, the fact that yours happen to be ok and not have (yet) this cracking problem does not make all others that experienced it clumsy and stupid. You can see all this posts, from people from different parts of the world. If it’s a usage problem, how do you explain that it's not to be found, in the same amount, on posts of other phones?
i bought a week 31 model about 3 or 4 weeks ago, i'm txt a good number of times and i have no cracked keys. the people that are still having the cracking problem are taking this phone for granted, some people are use to the razer style keys that aren't even really buttons, so my phones been working like a dream just go easy on the phones.
normal texting led to hundreds of other cracked keys of this phone. stop being so hard on her.
a phone is not a toy, so if it breaks you are using it for other things than it is supposed to be used for. for further instructions read the user manual for proper usage
I am quite disappointed with my new s500 because less than a week the keypad buttons cracked. I am now using it for just about 2 weeks. It really disappoints me actually. However, the rest of the function is good and the sound is good, best is, it is sleek and light. Now, thinking of changing to another new phone.
Does this phone have a FM radio????
is the keypad cracking problem still exist???
please reply mesoon as i want to buy this phone today itself
can i go for it?
plase reply me.
I bought this phone since early July. I always like Sony Ericsson. For this phone, I like all the look and features. But the sound quality isn't so good, both from phone itself or thru bluetooth. The other thing that's annoying me is that when you slide the phone to use the keypad, the upper part is loosed. I took it for service but they said it couldn't be fixed at it's the sping mechanic inside and that's why the phone is loose and not firm.
does the keypads still crack on the black and green one? please respond a.s.a.p
I have been using SE S500i, the yellow one. the yellow color is great looking. I'd like Sony Ericsson to make the mame bold and larger while calling out and receiving in.
Also phone book view can set to large and medium.
I would like to say this is a great phone for someone who likes phones that have great features but not too over the top, cost and function-wise. I personally bought this for a friend, and was super thrilled to see him like it so much!
The lights could be alter to any color of the rainbow if you go into the light setting option. really cool and new. the speaker is louder than the w800i.. tho i was hoping for a w-series. I was surprised.. the phone is great. use a w-series headphone for great music. overall.. i was pretty impressed.
@ Boss Lady,
Normal usage as I described it for me would be maybe 3-10 txts a day, and about 10-20 calls with maybe 5 out of the 10 being actually dialed, no web browser usage for me and a few notes/calendar events, about 1 a day.
Did SE pay for postage for sending the phone back or did u have to pay for it?
hi. i have this fone for close to one month now . i really like it coz of it's color and the feaures. mine's the yellow one. and the buttons on my fone didn't crack, hopefully it would stay that way. :p
does the keypad cracking only happen to the black model or does it happen with the yellow model too? please let me know!!
I have this phone and yes all the buttons have cracked. I have spoke to Sony and thay said to post them my phone and they will fix the problem free of charge and have my phone back to me within 3 days....
hello everyone, i just bought this recently and i am having trouble sending mms messages, can someone help here? i cant receive or send out.
Does SE pay for postage for sending the phone in to replace cracked keypads?
Well since everyone is wondering why the keypad is always cracking i might as well tell you. It's because of the color. apparently the greenish color chemical base is reacting with the keypad when pushed so after a few days/weeks the key cracks. :]
