I have had this phone since october 07. i think this phone is great, but the problem with mine is that the buttons are cracked. and my navigation buttons, such as the call, back, and up button doesn't work... so i sent it in to fix, hopefully they will fix it soon. the battery also dies too fast, like most people said. but i still love my phone though.
if you text a lot i suggest you not to get it.
the buttons don't exactly work well. The menu button, the light, and the button to scroll up doesn't work very well. The number buttons also. they break easily.
Hey guys, just bought this phone a week ago and have yet to have any problems with it. It's the Grey version (08w02) that came with 512 MB M2 stick. I got it from Rogers if that helps any. I'll be checking this page out from time to time to see if there are any replies I can help out with.
i am planning to buy sony ericsson s500 ..i just want to know that if music is not my priority then going for s500 is it a good choice as most of the other features of s500 and w580 are similar.....is it any other difference in s500 and w580 (apart from the walkman and the shake feature)..i hope that the body of both the phones are similar (equally strong)
i have this phone a week but the battery charge is so week . i cant play a music albom completly . i must charge my battery twice a day.
any1 else have this problem where when 1 Gb of memory in the m2 card has been used up u are unble to recive data from other devices even though i have a 2Gb memory stick
I have almost 7 months with this phone and have no problems. I canīt understand people with many bad experiences with this unit. Perhaps itīs bad luck or itīs the way you use it. Mine came with 512 Mb. M2 card and I changed it for a 2 Gb memory card. It works perfectly, it contains dozens of MP3īs, videomusic in MP4 format, hundreds of pictures and I donīt feel the phone is working slowly. I didnīt have the money to buy a more expensive mobil so I bought what I could afford. But, you know?, Iīm really impressed with the W580. Good Luck
i have this unit and it is so dissapointing for me. on my first 4 months of use i've experience an automatic shutdown on my unit even the battery is still 80% charged. the only way to turn the power on is by removing the battery and put it back again. i've sent it to service center. just after a month same problem exist,so i send it back again to service centre for the 2nd time. and now just after 3 days of using it, i have to send it back for the third time,it shuts down automatically. picture quality is poor even it is a 2 megapixel phone its like VGA when use at night. a crack on the keypad is increasing. One thing good on this unit is only the Music quality--nothing else.
This phone is pants!.. got it in october.. and o shok the nxt week it keep freezing so i sent it bk and low and bhold it hapnd agen.. the buttns r all crakd.. its jst falling apart! my frends have the same problems.. my sistrs wont even turn on jst a dark blank screen.. save up and get a better fone!!
no doubt w580 is one of the best walkman phones from the house of sony but the only problem in this handset is the keypad its very dellicate, actually i recently got this phone and everything was going fine but one day i was listening music on the phone and suddenly the keypad broke up into pieces and i was really dissapointed coz it was my brand new phone, although all features of this mobile are pretty cool but the only problem is with the body structure its vey light as compared to other phones.right now my phone is in the service centre and it will take atleast 1 week time to get repaired
this phone is very very very fragile. on my phone the number 2 key cracked and the d pads silver covering wore off exposing the illuminating light below. iv also had problems with the battery. for its price its not worth it. even tho the soft weer of the phone is very good its not worth is ooo and if u splice passion fruit juice forget about it.
The battery back up is very poor. Takes time 2 get charged fully. Not recommendable during travelling. Battery charge reduces fast when listening 2 music n also while browsing net.
sound clarity s xcellent and picure quality is awesome. very girly n user friendly phone.
I've this phone from 6months.This phone have good features but if u want click pics at night its quality low,play a game and u have broken keypad, surfing net makes warm outside of internal antenna and also a little bit low battery problem.
Yeah So Ive like got this phone about a month now and all in all its been a great companion to my communication needs, flows slide is good and button problem needlessly has not been affecting my button. One problem that I have had is my massive 4gb M2 Memory Stick which goes in top the phone for music photos and videos has deleted itself randomly by itself randomly. Other this I love phone till day it give ghost up on me>!!!!
I bought the cell just last day as I believe it is nice one. Well, initially it is fine for me. But there is no scope the password protected facility. That is lack of it and receiving sound is very low, I mean I heard the sound low, the volume is the maximum. Is it a general problem? Also, hw about the keypads- seems to many fragile note on it. Can anyone guide me properly?
Got this phone 2 days ago! :) Happy with it. But, I think there's a little problem with the upper part of the phone. It's not proportioned. The left side of the upper part is really attached to the phone (lower part of the phone), no problem. But the right side, is a little loose. Is it really made like that? Or is it my phone that has the problem? Please answer so that I'll know if I should go back to where I bought it. :D Thanks, in advance.
This phone is VERY, VERY fragile. So, think about it before you buy it. The keys issue is a fact, not just a bunch of ppl saying this. And the whole phone is fragile. One of the most fragiles phones I have ever seen.
The camera is ok for this series. The battery sucks.
Has some nice features but nothing extraordinary.
Again is fragile, so dont expect that this phone will last more than a year. The whole structure is weak and wont support a simple crash.
