This phone is gorgeous (I got the green one), has a large display, it's lightweight, small and has lovely color graphics. There are so many features I may never use them all. The incoming audio is top-notch. I have one problem - the audio is so loud to those I talk to that they have to hold the phone a foot from their ear even when the speaker is under my chin and it sill sounds as if I'm screaming at them. I've spoken with my provider and the manufacturer and both say that there is nothing to be done about out-going audio. CAN ANYONE HELP?
I love the phone. Got it around chrsitmas time, keys never cracked, always worked perfectly even after I dropped it on the ground a million times. But I just knocked it into the sink, and its acting like its trying to fan itself off? Not sure. Wouldn't stop buzzing so i took the battery back out. Hoping the phone still works, but not surprised if I need a new one. It did go into a foot of water after all. But no problems other than the one I caused myself. I recommend the phone.
Anonymous, 03 Jun 2008Had this phone since march 2008,I bought the pink one its really cute,thin,L-O-v-e the shakey ... morei think this keypad is under warranty and you can change it form any sonyericsson othrized service center
can anyone tell me if there was a color manufactured from the get-go that did not have the defective keypad issue, i thought that the new ones like pink and green were manufactured after the defect was supposedly "fixed" by sony ericsson in all the new phones that went out. Does anyone own a pink or green one that doesnt have the keypad issue?
This fone is just gr8! But the battery life is a disappointment bearing in mind that it has a walkman.the lights btw the slides is just the thing! Jay
wag1 i was planin 2 buy dis fone but tew mii if its gd or not holla bk
i had this fone for 6months and i love it, long battery life and very good feature but the only bad this is that after talking on the fone for more 1/2hour it gets really hot other than that, everything else is great...a really good fone
I work for a leading mobile company in the uk. Keep away from the W580i, nothing but complaints. buttons cracking has been the worst. screen freezing and also speaker needed to be replaced. I have had so much abuse from customers, all because of this handset lol
I was planning to buy this phone cause it's very cute,but the problem is i got scared after reading all ur comments,the problems,......
So,people,should or SHOULD NOT buy this phone.
Pretty good phone. Some of the call-lights settings like to reset themselves, but that is okay. Dropped it in a puddle the other day, no breakage, or water damage on the screen. All in all, a pretty decent deal.
These past few weeks, i've been looking for a cute phone,stylish,pink,.... i found w580i and i liked it very much,and i was considering to buy one.But the problem is that,yesterday i saw some peoples comments and they all have the same problem,now i'm confused,Should or SHOULD NOT i buy this mobile phone.
my 5 month experience with this phone:
1. after the 2nd month, the keypads break.
2. after the 3rd month, the navigational key's paint chips off. you'd think the phone's aged 5 years instead of five months. had it changed and barely a month, it's fading and even worse than the one it replaced.
3. cover protecting the memory card slot replaced 3 times(!)
4. now the bonzer flex is flaking out...i can't use the left key and feedback is that i'm not the only one with the bloody problem.
i can't believe that this is an (sony)ericsson unit i've come to know.
Had this phone since march 2008,I bought the pink one its really cute,thin,L-O-v-e the shakey button,great features.The only thing that ruin it,is the keypad it easily crack at first my no.6 then just yesterday my no.8 but I still LOVE this phone I don't know why haha..and the bttry life sucks
ashish, 01 Jun 2008this mobile is too good but is slide not work properly hi i am finding my mobile good.. but asometimes i feel that the mobile will br processed very slow.. so please find me the solution..
The W580 are very stylish and cool to play with. I had two phones since Christmas. One for the wife and one for child. We don't do the texting thing, but both phones in the same month had the same issue. They could hear the caller, but are unable to be heard. This didn't happen all the time. They had to recall numerous times for the other person to hear them. Anyone else with the same issue?
The keypad on this handset is rubbish, im on my 3rd handset already and only had it month.
But overall the handset is gr8!!x
