steve, you're encouraging everyone to rant more on the quality of this keypad... what's wrong with you? everyone knows by now that they keypad breaks easily when people LIKE YOU doesnt know how to handle it...
from the looks of it, your thumb is too big and heavy so instead of blaming YOURSELF, you look at other things/people/entity to blame why your keypad broke for the second/thrid time... it's you that's the problem man... so STFU.
not sure why people complain so much when they see that a phone doesn't have 3G... maybe it's their location or what not... but really, what's the big deal? i've had a nokia before that has 3G and now I have this w580 without 3G... i couldn't tell the difference... if anything, this w580 works better inside an elevator than my previous nokia 6680
enlighten me people...
MP3 CANNOT BE USED AS RINGTONE ISSUE
I will repost this again to address this issue. Here's the deal. YOU CAN use an mp3 file as a ringtone IF AND ONLY IF your mp3 file is 30 secs or less.
YOU CANNOT use any mp3 file as a ringtone if it is 30.01 secs of more....
I have own this phone and believe me it is a very good phone.It has a very stylish look,great sound quality.But camera is not so good.Every one is talking that it's keypad is frail but i do not find this problem. It's display is crystal clear and it is not very expensive only 13K.If u want a phone with only music purpose then w580 is the best.It's speaker is loud and sound is very clear.According me me it scores 8.5 out of 10.But i will again say camera is not so good no auto focus.But if u r thinking of buying this phone then go for it without any confusion.
Someone asked why MP3 song doesn't work as ringtone and the answer is: Is true, the Mp3 doesn't works as ringtone, you just can hear them. But this not is a trouble, all phones haves the same condition. This phone is amazing!

I have had this phone for about a month and it is great! I first just got the phone through AT&T and I did not like all the junk that AT&T put on it so I just bought the "real" version of the phone and it is just as good. The keypad that people have been complaining about works fine. I text a ton and I have had no issues with it. It is shaky if you push the keys on the edges, but if you push right in the middle it feels really sturdy. I have had no bad issues with my w580! I love this phone and the software works great and I love the layout and the way you can get through windows and things like that. No really bad problems to be said! Great buy and suggest it to anyone who is thinking about it! ZWZ...

i got the pink wan it looks smart i am the first want ta git it oz ma dad work in carfone ware hoose and he gave me it before it wiz oot it no oot ta christmas ;)
Only the network taxes apply to TrackID. I mean, you pay only for the internet search of the song you have recorded. I haven't tried this out, but it shouldn't be so expensive, as it takes only a few seconds to display the song's details.
Having had both s500i an w580i i agree that keypad issue is same in both ive had with regards to using keys gently i do in both in s500 an w580 both keypads cracked in ten days i dont want a phone with cracked keys eventualy in w580 my key 6 that had split fell of in 2 pieces so being gentle isnt issue its sonys manafactuing fault then in my case handsets were sent away for 3 weeks before cracking again an they were both from week 33 w850i is phone im going back 2 with w580 im disgusted
whoever u are, steve... u keep u nose where it belongs... people have the rite to say wat they want... and hell, other customers that were willing to buy it would have benefit from other's comments... there are fones that u can text how much ever u want and till ther's no problem... if sms feature is one of many feature in the fone, we should txt as much as we want without care.. so if the buttons are too sensitive, make better keypads otherwise don't make features that would damage the fone...
i just got this in a white...its so cute and stylish havent had any problems with it...highly recommend it..... i work in a phone shop so i should know..
gr8 4 music, poor 4 imagin...
nice lytin efects...
also batery cover hard 2 remove....
Don't know who this post is below but let me make this clear to all of you considering this phone.
Under the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982, manufacturers have to provide a handset that is fit for its purpose, free from defect and reasonably durable. The W580I is neither fit for purpose , free from defect or reasonably durable.
Yet the SE repair centre claim there is no issue with this model!!! It beggars believe.
Mine lasted 2 weeks, away and back lasted 1 day away and back lasted 1 day. Now back again I will be taking this up with trading standards.
"IF YOU TEXT more than a few day FORGET This pile of C***
Get this phone if:
- you'll use it more as a cellphone than a text messaging device
- you like a feature packed phone
- you don't use your phone as your digital camera as well (occassional picture shots only)
- you like the Walkman interface
- you like a nice looking phone not just in the picture but in person as well
DO NOT get this phone IF:
- you'll treat it as a text messaging device. you might as well get yourself a SIDEKICK or something with a qwerty keypad because YES, the keypad is fragile and it WILL break under enormous texting conditions.
DO NOT COMPLAIN about the the keypad breaking IF:
- same as the above
IF THE KEYPAD BREAKS A SECOND, THIRD, OR MORE TIMES:
- it's YOU that's the problem, not the keypad.
It's getting old seeing people crying, biotching, pouting, and complaining non-stop about the keypad of this phone. YES, they are FRAGILE, probably one of the most fragile keypads out there... But if you handle it with extra care and taking it easy pushing the buttons, you should be fine and you'll like this phone. SO STOP THE MADNESS and don't comment on how the keypad sucks... everyone knows that by now"
