i really love this phone, however, i hear the the keypad cracks, i live in a very remote place in africa so returning it will be exteremely difficult.. i want this phoe but yet again i'm not sure if it will last long.. i will be getting mine from pakistan for a good price too!! what would you suggest? should i buy it or not???
se_fans: take out the battery and look into the back label with bunch of numbers. You should found it somewhere said W27 or W28 or WXX which that XX stands for what week it produced.
I personally think s500 is up to std ,beautiful features and smart... I could do with it,ineed it.
I'm still wondering if i should get this phone or not since I've been reading all these complaints of cracking keypads. i want to know if the s500's are only defective before week 28 or does no one really know if they're still defective after week 28?
underneath where the battery should go is where there's a few characters of text that should look like 07W27 or 07WXX, the numbers in place of the XX is the week number
cool handset; the SIM slot is annoying though! so hard to insert and even harder to remove. Does anyone know a nifty way to remove the SIM?
how can you confirm which week was it produced in? is there a code that you punch in? i just got mine two days ago and i'm not sure when was it manufactured.
is it true that this phone does not have flash on the camera? if it is true how does it affect night time pics?
Oh really? Half of keypads were cracked. Yet to send it back to the shop to claim warranty cos' pretty busy. Anyway keep us the updates of the new keypads k.
medanmru, sorry the camera is super basic, doesn't have autofocus/macro/zoom
Just wonder if this phone has features like Auto Focus, Macro mode for camera function???
I just got my phone back from being serviced under warranty for the cracked keypads, looks like all SE worldwide has recognized the problem, covered under warranty. The new keypad is sturdier at least, feels thicker, I'll post to see how well it holds up in a week or 2.
