SE should have used the W700 keypad instead of these flimsy colourful keypads for W580.
Coz W 700 keypad is flat ,very user friendly and no reports of it cracking. Have a close at W 700 keypad and u will agree with me. Or atleast the rubberised keypad.
Do u all agree with me?
ok, i havent bought the phone yet but i think that the newer versions might have the keypad problem solved whereas the older versions may carry the same problem as the S500.
i checked the W580 a various places (here in dubai that is) and some shops had this phone with a very, and i mean very, flimsy keypad whereas some places the keypad felt quite solid ( i actaully was pressing hard with my nails to check, lol).
I've had this little beauty for a week now and I love it. I previously had the W850i but it was a little too bulky for my liking so I bought this W580i sim free. Up to now, I've had no problems. I've got long nails and my keypad hasn't cracked! I hope it stays that way! The music quality is very good and comes with great headphones, and the camera is far superior to my previous 850i. It's a shame that it doesn't have auto focus though. Also it has no flash but it still takes good pics. The screen quality is very clear with rich colours. The speakers on this mobile are in the centre of the directional keys. FM radio is nice and clear. It comes with a 512 mb card but I've put a 2 GB card in mine and I believe it will accommodate up to an 8 GB! Transferring songs from a CD to this phone is easy and quick. I would recommend this mobile to anyone. I don't know why people are having cracked keypads. I'm happy with mine. Any questions, feel free to ask and I'll answer if I can!!
Both W850 and S500 are cursed with a faulty keypad.Wait for a year to have a stable unit..
is it just me or someone else has problems setting the memory stick??? ;(
lmao as soon as a rad this i looked at my key pad and sure enough my number 4 and 2 button where CRACKED!!!!
TyTN thanks for the description :) it looks cool. i cant wait to try out in the W580.
im actually just waiting for a while so that maybe SE can resolve the keypad problem. I think this phone is great and looks cool too :D

Yes, you can use the camera in landscape mode.
It works like this:
-choose landscape mode
-take one photo and when taking the second you can see the edge (transparent) of the first one
-line it with the scenery for the second photo and
-take another photo
-repeat the process to take the third and last one
---now you have three photos in one, a landscape photo :))
about the mp3 ringtone:
of course you can use your own mp3s as ringtones. But it seems that a/some provider(s) messed up and locked it. That's why I hate locked/branded phones. It will be OK if you get an unlocked one.
can u use the camera in landscape mode? and is true that u cant set MP3 as ringtones?
that would help with my descition between W580i and W610i
No problem, dude! :)
You'll have fun with the panorama shots, I'm sure. Not only because you can show a wider angle, but also because you can combine different things in one photo. It's up to your imagination, really. :)
Don't forget to leave your review here when you've tested it.
are u guys serious that the keypad cracks? did u press the buttons hard? give me more details thanks.
i email an SE representative and they told me that a 4GB M2 card works just fine. and i think someone here has already been using it with no problem. so dont worry about the memory card size guys. the only thing now is the keypad. if they fix it, i m sure to buy it..
I have had my w580i for 3 weeks now, and as much as i love the desing and the music, it has been a problem since the first day, it is plagued with software problems, and my button has just this minute cracked, rather worried as i work for a mobile retailer and have sold a lot of these. Frome experience if this does happne to you it's worth waiting a few weeks more before putting it in for repair, unless it's with in it's 28 day refund and exchange period, as more than likely SE have already dispatched or are working on improved buttons for repair centers to replace the cracked ones. Real big shame, love the phone other wise.
Can any one tell me about the memory card, and what is the bigest size memory card I can put in SE 580. THX.
it will brake again, i asked SE and they just sad, you have to send it in! Im a mobileseller in norway, and my costumers arnt that happy with sending it in after a week!! im now on my THIRD w580-..just for testing..lets see how this one goes ...
