We purchased 3 W580I's last Christmas. My daughter has had 2 cracked key replacements in the last 3 months. My phone, the left circular key flew off into my center console (can't find it!)trying to open the phone and they won't cover this. My husband's worked fine - till he lost it! It hasn't been a year and we are not real happy with this model.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970buy SE W580, it is much better than LG. you won't regret
ok it was gud at first until like something happened with the 8 button and it like keeps popping 8's onto the screen without me doing anything. its gotten to where i cant even get on the menu or text or anyhtin. total rip off..
Ok, so I finally found out for myself about the key cracking problem. For the last six month -that's how long I've had this phone- I've taken real good care of this phone like I always do with electronics. Not even one scratch on my phone and I don't even use it much and last Sunday I looked at the keypad and I noticed two cracked keys all of a sudden. It was a big disappointemt. I thought if I took care of my phone I wouldn't have this problem but I did. This phone is a beautiful phone and the speaker is really loud and clear when playing music, but the worst thing about it is the keypad. No matter how careful you're with the keys they will eventually start cracking. Sony NEEDS to and SHOULD do something about this problem. It's a shame for this phone.
The keypad is bad.. keeps cracking all the time.. its good for people who dont send any text messages! otherwise its good
W580 is beautiful and easy too use, but this model has small shortage, and this shortage is lack of flash and light
Right now I'm on the phone with my provider about getting this phone replaced. It didn't work right out of the box they sold it to me in and Now It doesn't function at all. Don't buy unless your never going to put it in harms way or drop it. I've dropped mine like maybe 5 times and it's broken, the bttery cover is broken, the slide is wearing paint off already, the cover is easily scratched. my original W810i was a way better phone then this pos I upgraded to. DO NOT BUY. It's not worth the headache of trying to replace.
This phone is rubbish, completly rubbish!
My keys broke after the first month, the camera has disfunchtioned and i cannot play any music!
Please take care with this phone if you do get it, its vvery fragile!
