Just got it over two weeks ago. Men the phone rocks. Anybody that wants a phone can get what you need on it. And lest i forget the track changer is magnificent.
I have a W810 and want to upgrade to the W580 for the bluetooth stereo. Anyone else? How is the sound quality with the bluetooth headpohones? Will the FM work without the cords?
Gosh i had my mind set on this but after hearing the key pad cracking i changed my mind coz if majority of the people are saying that it'll crack then eventually it will crack just like w710i rubber peels off it eventually does damnnnnnnnn :( i hope they make another fixed version of this
Can sum1 pleez help me with the edge compatibility! Theres only n 'G' for gprs and not an 'E'
The keypad cracked the 2nd time i changed it... :( wondering what happened to SE that it never learnt the lesson from S500...
people who's had problems with the phones turning off automatically or something, do you guys have a phone holder/case/holster that has a magnetic flap or some magnet on it? if so, don't use it to hold your w580...
and for those looking to buy a holder/holster/case/etc. for this phone, do not buy anything with magnets... some units are fine but other units might be affected like having the turn off problems...
Had this phone a few months now, I've posted previous reviews on this site expressing my initial delight and then my disappointment. Since the last note, I've taken the phone back to carphone warehouse for repairs - 3 keys cracked, and the memory card wiped itself once or twice.
Had it back a few weeks, new keys still intact, not using the music player currently as got a new mp3 player to play with :-)..., and reloading mp3 files onto the card in the unit is SO slow.
If I could turn back time, probably wouldn't have bought this phone, but have gone for something older n bigger that's had all its bugs sorted out, like the k800. On those occasions I need a slim phone to slip into a dinner jacket or top pocket, I'd have got one of those throwaway cheap (£10!) slim motorolas.
It's an awesome handheld device. But i'm having problem in playing aac format. Please help me out
I have to say that I just got mine and this phone is really good...the camera could be better but thinking of it, it is a Walkman phone not a Cybershot phone and the sound is excellent so it acomplish it goal, about the keypad I hope not to have any problems with it, you only have to know how to use your phone, if you use your nails to press the keys you will have problems, instead of that try to use your fingers and your phone will last longer, if any problems I'll write again...
I went into a big named phone shop yesterday having my heart set on buying this phone, one of the staff came upto me and told me that they could not recommend them as they'd had loads of people bringing them back as they kept turning themselves off, had problems with keypads, problems with the screens and a couple of other things, I was very suprised, but she said they had to warn people who wanted to buy them, so I think I'll be looking for another phone. I'm gutted!
I've ad this phone for 3 months now, no problem with the keypads what so ever and i text quite alot! Everything on this phone works pretty good or perfect. Downfall would be the camera but it takes really good pictures when theres good light. Also one more problem is the paint chipping off aroudn the speaker area (especially the black ring around it). If you have nails it might tend the scratch off some paint, but thats not for eevryone so theres nothing to really worry about.
mmm...so many complains about the cracking keypad..its scared me to have one...:(
I bought my w580 through rogers... Love it
i got the black one, Ive never gotten the crack thing tho... The batt isnt as good, last a couple days .. it be like 6 o clock and my phone would give me a bunch of low batterie sounds...I do listen to music and use my phone heavily... mine came with sick games, def. the best phone ive ever had for games. the speaker is in the pad.. txt is ok could be better ... the only flaw I really noticed... the lack of the camera button... you dont get to hold it on its side to take a pic
This is thousand times better than 5700 !
Just use it and you will love it !
can somebody tell me which one is better W850 compared to a Nokia 5700.. in terms of the overall feature of the phone? thanx..
