I had this phone for about 6 months. Everything seemed alright, but pretty soon by the 6th month my buttons cracked one by one (but that was my fault for txting so much lol ... but they DO crack eventually), then the camera stopped working..like i couldn't even run the application in the end, the upper left button and the up button wouldn't work (believe me it was SO frustrating trying to go back one screen =_=)...yea...i was so fed up i just threw it away and used one of my brother's old phones...>.>
Have had this phone for 1 month and am really happy with it. I believe the camera is fantastic the design and speed of use of phone compared to my former w910i is brilliant. Unfortunately the button have all cracked. Is there a way of me stopping this from happening?? If so please help. Also where is the best place to have it repaired and roughly how much does this cost.
I bought the W580 in red last week and found that the battery life to be quite poor. The specs say up to 10hrs, or realistically 2-3 days with moderate use. I barely got 1.5 days out of mine- and that's without using the mp3/internet/ & lowering screen intensity. Is there a way to turn off the sidelights (figure it might conserve some batt life). Has anyone else been experiencing the same problem?

The feature re... morei think it has to do with the idea that you will be jogging with this phone and so to keep it from automatically going to the next song when it bounces, you have to hold the walkman button.
I never thought that i would find a phone that suits me. That phone is the bomb, it rocks,it is best for the ladies.
SONY YOU GUYS ROCK...........
Anonymous, 09 Aug 2008Yeah, that's what I used to think. I took real care of it that after six months of use not eve... morethe keypad does crack on the grey and black versions of the phone but the white has harder buttons so it doesnt
i have the grey model of the phone and im a textaholic so i have only got 1 key that is not broken and that is the *key

Anonymous, 08 Aug 2008You weren't being careful with it. I had mine for 3 years and there was no damage do to it wha... moreThe phones been out a year and you've had it for three? Thats a little odd.
I just ordered one, cannot wait to get it! had the S500i, yeah the keys crack but whatever. They still work!
The W580i does have the "Shake to Shuffle" feature but it makes no sense to me. The feature requires you to hold down the "Walkman key" and then shake the phone once and it will shuffle to the next song. My question is...
Why press a button and shake the phone when you could set the player to "Shuffle All" and simply press the "next key" to skip to the next shuffled song in your library without shaking it?
Maybe I am missing something. I don't know...

I took real care of it that after six months of use not even one scratch on my phone BUT all of a sudden I have two cracks in the # 1 and 3 keys. I hardly ever use the keypad to dial because I use the calling list to call people. I love this phone but the keypad is soooo cheaply made. It doesn't take a scientist to see the cheap material it's made of.

It said on this page, that a 512MB memory comes with this phone? How come mine didn't come with it? Did everyone else get a 512MB memory card along with this phone?
Ok. If you want to burst your brain out by listening to a rock music, get this awesome phone. Mega BAss is just soooo MEGA! I cannot quite relate to people complaining about some cracked keys and battery life and camera not working and music player busted... How? How did you use this phone? Did you use your toes in typing SMS? I've been using this phone for a month already and there's nothing to complain about this phone. This phone is sleek and elegant... and it RocKS! Go grab one 'cause there is no other choice but Sony Ericsson Walkman Series. Thanks SE for bringing the best quality of music to cellphones.
