This phone was so wonderfully tactile. The sliding mechanism was gloriously smooth and had the perfect amount of resistance. Picking up a call by sliding it open and ending a call by sliding it back down was brilliantly intuitive and practical. Today's smartphones are all cold, dead slabs of metal with no tactility and crappy vibration motors to provide a bare minimum of sensory feedback. Wish there were more ways to restore some tactility in phones nowadays.

i have a sony ericsson w580i and my keypad circuit is damaged and cannot be repaired...i have kept a passcode when the phone starts and now due to damaged keypad i cannot type the passcode.is there any other way to unlock my phone???please help!!
I have an unlocked W580i purchased from Hong Kong, voice and plain text messaging works ok, but I cannot receive MMS picture messages via MEdia Net on the AT&T network in the US. I can't figure how to set it up to do this since the menu options are different than with the AT&T branded version. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks.
Im using this mobile and the phone heats up when surfing the internet. The microphone is a problem the other side cant hear me its like i rate the sound 2/10 and sending of messages is so slow, sending multiple messages the phone says no network coverage even i have a full signal. And when i put themes the menu icon doesn't change. It just changes the wallpaper. What's wrong with my mobile? I bought this in taiwan.
I've had it since 2007, the sound and the player was always the best. There was even a feature, in order for the player to change the song, all I had to do was shake it :-) I still have it, it still works perfectly good. I only use it for music though :-)
I have owned this phone since 2007 until some fool stole it from my room this year. I loved this phone like no other. Had owned another SE before and now 1 of my phones is an Xperia mini but this SE is still my favourite 1. I loved the old SE layout and themes that change with every menu. The lights on the side that flash with the vibration and ringing. Sony Ericsson before the standardised Google OS. I miss it. that distinct Sony Ericsson feel.
I was just cleaning my cupboard when i found this device lying under some stuff. I have this phone since 2008, the first phone i got. I really loved it especially the LED strips on both the sides (the main reason i bought this phone for :P). I have many memories attached to it. It was working fine for 2 years till one day when it just wouldnt charge. It was giving some troubles before, it wasnt that major but that day it just wouldnt recognize the charging pin connected to it. Even the headphones were not working with it. The guys at the service centre could not repair it so i bought an iphone 4. I wish i could repair it... anyway just sharing this thing
AnonD-75913, 21 Mar 2014Yes this is one of the best phone, i am using this phone since November 2008 and still using ... moreI agree. And while I have never needed to replace the battery, I have dropped it too many times to count and it has yet to break. There were just a LOT of dents, scuffs and gouges on the housing. I said were because I replaced the old white casing with a new red one. And now it's pretty again:)
Yes this is one of the best phone, i am using this phone since November 2008 and still using this phone,i really love picture quality, music quality & speed of this phone.
Only thing is to get its standard battery which is too costly (2400\-Rs)which i have purchased once but it worth it.
