A good handset, i got it 4 month before and it is working nice..some time the software behaves abnormal but rest is fine and good value for money..
This Phone is Not that good. I am using this for the last 7 months. Didn't have a fault till recently. My Display Totally CRASHED and it doesn't detect on my Laptop. Even if it Detected it doesn't allow me to straightly copy & paste my contacts only SYNC. I went through a very tuff time since i had lost all my contacts. I had to Spend a lot to get a new display and Still its Not working Good.
Its a Piece of CRAP.
I got this ph about $180 now!
it's cool actually!
It rather looks like S500 but i think keypad is not that bad.
To be honest, W550i would have louder speaker!
But consider that, would you just buy w550i(low level resolutions) because of loudness? Or would you pay more for latest models ?
I think , it's the best to get this phone in this price range!
Mandy, 26 Oct 2008Does anyone have this problem like me? The back and the top of the around buttons doesn't work... moreWhich buttons exactly are you referring to, and what do you mean when you said they don't work? You mean they don't click, or nothing happens when you click on them?
I have a question concerning the 2 D-shape buttons (the holds the clear and back buttons) on either side of the large centre navigation button: Is the whole button supposed to stick out, or does it taper inward so that the edge closest to the centre is almost flush with the surface? On mine they taper inward, and I find the clicking action of those buttons a bit sloppy, and I wondering if there is a defect with the way the buttons are installed.
Is it only the red version that has that velvety, slightly grippy finish?
I have had this phone for a little over 5 months, and my keys have started to crack. My menu buttons have also come loose and a little piece of plastic that held the buttons in place have cracked. The phone has been awesome up until this point. I feel like it has just let me down. Everything seems to be going on it all at the same time. For a company that usually makes an awesome product, they really didn't spend much time making this phone up to their usual standards.
Does anyone have this problem like me? The back and the top of the around buttons doesn't work sometimes. It has been like that for two days already. I don't know what to do with it. How can I fix it?
is the keypads is really bad??
but got ppl said tat the new w580 have no problem is it?? pls answer my question... i really like this phone.. but dunno is it a good choice??i really like music phone..PLZ ANYONE ANSWER ME...THX=)
i bought da phone less than a ear.n has gone thrice for da repairing to da company.so i suggest every1 nt 2 by dis cel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Even if SE already switched manufacturers (which we can't say for sure), the damage is done. How can i be sure that the one im buying today will not have the same problems? Been planning to buy, i'm still not decided which one. Still using my good old K510. But so far, as most user opinions i have read, current SE phones always has some issues. Very disappointing.
i really want to buy the pink sony ericsson 580i but i text all the time.would the keypads crack or not?What about the battery life? im always on my phone! Can someone really tell me please.Thank you!
my m8 had this phone but she always throws hers and the screen has gon a bit dogey and it has deleated all of her song haha
Had new W580 phone for less than a week when the keys started to crack. Keys cracked down the middle while texting. What a shame, it's a nice phone.
Sony has apparently switched manufacturers for this phone. If you have a red one the keypad should be okay. Other colours - you need to check the manufacturing date - anything after February 2008 should be okay - before that the keypad was prone to cracking - right down the middle.
I agree it has a charging issue - I have to charge mine every 2 days and I'm not a heavy cell user. It doesn't seem to matter if I'm using the walkman feature or not. Also - I couldn't use a belt case with a magnetic closure - it would automatically send a busy signal.
Other than that it is the best phone I've had and the most fun. I love it.
I've got this phone for about 8 months now.. I love it and have no problem with it (not with the keypad not with anything).
I bought this phone for less than 1 year & the key pad has started to crack.
Keypad is a total failure.
I got this phone for free @ best buy thru my service provider (ATT) in the states. Good color selections. I had the pink one. I've read previous reviews about how the keys would start cracking after about a month of usage. I was thinking, what? How can keys cracked? I was wrong! I'm not an extreme texter but I text pretty often. On the 28th day after getting the phone, I noticed small cracks in the middle of the keys (6 and 4), after one more day, 2 started cracking. Other than the keys cracking, it's a pretty good phone. The light effects are cool. Of course the phone is still usable even the keys cracked, but if ur a perfectionist like me, I think you should think twice about getting this phone.
