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"
hi. im getin this fone 4 my bday in 1 wk. was just wonderin, do u have to pay if u use the track id thing?
It's absolutely the best phone I've ever had. I'd reccomend it to anybody who's looking for a fantastic music phone.
keypad has cracked within 20 days from purchase.
Also getting hang during calls & web browsing.
this two things are strange, company has to think about it.
hi guys... i just replace N73 with W850i.... awesome phone.. great performance...great handling and offcourse nobody can beat sony in sound quality....... nokia is far behind in this.... overall w850i is a class launch from sony....
Just got the w580. Quad band reception makes a huge difference compared to my w880 when using in North America. I'm impressed overall about the phone. However, it seems my w880 takes pictures just a little better. It seems a little clear.(I may be wrong) I thought the cameras chould be the same. Other than that I have no complaints. I like the how firm the memory card cover is. Btw, anyone know if there is a cover for the phone charging part? My charging part of my w880 got so dirty, but i don't want to mess up the phone so didn't really clean it. Is there a way to clean it? I guess this is the second complaint, why can't se make a cover for the charging part or port?
dis fone is so cool dawg. it has gr8 music, gr8 graphics n it much better in black/grey.
g2g c ya
great look! great sound! hard 2 use keypad! wont break if cared after properly! 2/10 considering the camera!
ya this is an good an cool phone.Good music phone. But camera is not haveing an flash that makes it low at night .
The TrackID is under Entertainment. If you don't find it, probably your operator has cut it out.
well, i've been using this for 2 and a half weeks already, no keys have cracked yet, hopefully none won't crack for a long time use... this thing's really amazing...
This phone is basically quite compact and has a very loud speakers for music player due to the hidden front speakers at the navigation keypads.
But the keypads do cracked really easily. Quite disappointed with it, other than that, there isn't any complaint to make.
Oh, another thing, the battery life is really short when you play games.
I got this phone last week, and I'm still learning all the features. Can anyone tell me how to find TrackID? I read that it is under Entertainment, but its not listed on my phone. Also, you know the + / - buttons on the left side - can I change those to set my ringer volume? Right now, they provide info about the phone and they do voice dialing.
This Is really a amazing phone. crystal clear display amazing look, great sound beautifull skins of walkman, also with visualization, fittness and so many other features. bt why not 3G.... any way overall its' rock simply awesome phone i am using it and really very enjoying it.
In order the zoom in an object while snapping a picture. You need to be set in VGA mode. The camera will not zoom in 2MP or 1MB.
hey all plz tell me that phone camera is not zooming in the picture mode, tell me that how the phone camera is zooming in the picture mode. plz tell me as soon as possible,
hi friends, i purchased this phone yesterday it is a cool & stylish phone, i lve this phone in the very first sight, but i want to know from my friends that is this true that its keypad is very low class or good or very good keypad & tell me about the phone is this good phone or bad phone.
its great phone i purchased yesteday, its looks so cool & stylish, gsm arena forget to tell all the people that it comes with 1gb memory card & its shaking feature. but any one tell me that is this true its keypad is low class or not or the best phone.
got this phone about a week ago and unfortunately the # keypad was cracked on the first day, that's too bad but i'll make sure to care enough not to mess it up any more than it already is. otherwise great phone, lots of functionality and nice lighting.
only problem is that the vibration is too weak, but that comes with the territory when u get a slim phone these days.
sony ericsson phones are known for having a huge amount of functionality so go for it
