all r good but you want to type number u must open slide
this is major disadvantage
I have been using this phone now for about an year n faced no problem at all.A wonderful phone for music lovers and battery last longer than other phones.Wonderful clarity even with 2mp camera...its a good buy....
I've had this phone for two years and it served me relatively well. I have a few buttons that are cracked as well but they still work just fine. The battery was awesome for the past two years. Talk time was much more than other phones I've had. I didn't make much use of the Mp3 options so I can't say much about that but the camera and video options always worked well. However, now after 2 years the phone decides to shut off randomly and takes a few mins to re-start. This happens when msging, when calling, anytime really. So now - I have to get a new phone sad as I am :(
this phone is great,i got mine a year ago and still its ok,,i havent brought it yet to any repair shop..and even when i've accidentally fell it, its still okay,,

I had that phone, was very nice while it lasted.
Unfortunatly it didnt last long ( 6-8 months only)
First thing that went on my phones were the buttons on the number pad. they were cracking in half. I dont have any nails and i was a Newbie texter so a overusage or (using nails) isnt possible for that.
Another thing was the side buttons - The menu buttons Left/Right aswell as the bottom werent working all the way. you would have to push down extremely hard in order to actualy enable the button to do what you want. The speakers when i slide open it would be alot louder and when i slide itclosed you can barely hear anything that comes out of it.
Last and not least, THE FACEPLATE of the phone fell right off, ya thats right i could see what the phone was made of.
Those are just the Cons of the phone ( when i got it )
The pros about it, it was a EXCELENT music player, very fast and the quality was great! i loved the earbuds. Aswell the camera quality thi its not much and no flash very good quality. aswell Loved the Pedometer ( shows how much you walk/distance and cal burned)
over all it wasnt that much of a disapointment. i loved it while it lasted. i would say buy at own risk, tho this phone is pretty cheap now so if you need a phone that you need to use incase of emergency. go for it.
Great phone, very fast and very good looks! The camera and music are also very good! I also got the problem of the cracked buttons, but mine didn't drop off... Keypad works still fine for me after a year... Really a great phone
it`s great except the key pads that are cracked and not easily available for change
i have been reading that the keypad brokes up very frequently. so whats the solutions for this. can it be fixed with glu or gum or the only solution is the replacement of keypad and how much does keypad costs
this phone has a ton of cool features, worth the price. however, the keys crack and fall out and its not very sturdy at all. overall its a good pick.
All of the above comments are right bcz i also have w580i its a very good handset the only problem that i face is its key buttons craks despite all that i like this phone.
