I have had the phone about 14 months and have had only 1 serious problem, and that is moisture damage. It appears this phone is extremely sensitive to any moisture, unlike any phone I ever had. Finally, Bluetooth function is down and can't be repaired. Other than this, ecxellent phone all the way around. Just wish I didn't encounter this stupid problem twice.
hey its a great phone had it for about a year, works fine for being a walkman. not camera, my 2 year old evens plays with it.sony ericsson rocks !!!!!
Do not take the back off! I tried so that I could get the sim card, and my back won't go on right anymore! =(
I have had two of these phones one in grey, keypad split and it felt loose sent it to sony and they repaired it within 5 days. The black one I have had since june 08 and it gets used for texting lots . Every phone has its faults but i love this model, the lights on it and the themes it has. its a really good phone for the price.
dev, 25 Apr 2009sony ericsson w580I this phone is bad very bad i have it goes in flight mode automatic after r... moreDev, you are saying that the camera of the sony ericsson W580i is not so good. What do you expect? it's a walkman phone, it is designed for Music Lifestyle. Why dont you try the sony ericsson K850i Cyber-shot if you are looking for a good camera. I have this phone for 3 months now.

Regarding this phone, here are some pros and cons
i encountered after one month of using it:
1. yup, the keypad does break, but probably because of the frequent texting and gaming
2. NOT "drop-proof". first time i dropped this had some small chips but still functional
3. Video is really not that good compared with other phones
1. awesome slide phone. the style and design looks great
2. excellent features. you can do a lot with this phone. shake feature is cool too
3. clear and crisp camera

hey everyone i just wana say this is an awesome phone but mostly for the music and unfortunately the web browser isnt that excellent as a nokia e71 but still is a great phone . . . . .
the only thing that put me off was the poor keypad :(
other than that NOTHING!
its a very smart n a cute it has a les weight n agood camera result n its a perfect for young girls
it is very bad for soundand camera clarity then it s internet connections is very fast then a simple good phone and its very hot deal
