Don't worry, this phone is great, I'm have this beauty with me around month now, screen is great, you don't want stylus except for messaging. I don't think you are going to own this for ten to fifteen years. This OS is stable, it doesn't need updates because it is not having any bugs in it. don't worry, be positive, this phone have great features, so buy this babe, I'm recommending it, Good luck
smallyellow, 17 Feb 2009thank you..but are u sure it is going to stop from producing??just now i just ask phone's whol... moreThe OS of this phone which is UIQ is officially dead by Sony Ericsson, that means now SE will stop making any softwares for this phone, and there won't be any update softwares for the UIQ handsets!! Now, if the OS is only dead, then it is obvious that they would stop producing these phones!! I own this phone, and I personally recommend anyone not to buy this phone unless you are a huge Sony Ericsson fan!!
Its a pretty cool phone, but the screen is horrible.
Gets stuck after about 4 months and then phones random all the time...
It would be good if the 2 buttons that are based in the bottom of the screen (touch buttons) where real buttons.
Also, some of the functions are intuitive to sony ericsson users... I have been a sony Ericsson user for years and felt like this was designed by someone else.
Simple things like being able to clear a message... it was just different. I now have a w890 and right back to good'o'l sony ericsson normality.
DV, 16 Feb 2009I guess W960i has already been stopped producing, coz its OS UIQ is officially dead!!thank you..but are u sure it is going to stop from producing??just now i just ask phone's wholesale and she said it stil producing ah....so????pls reply me!tq
One of the worst.
Touchscreen has got stuck on a certain spot after only 8 months. Now it's dialing random numbers in my phonebook. I even hated it before that. It's super sluggish and slow, has horrible interfaces, too big for my pocket. Can't be used in daylight as the touchscreen gets "greyed out"... etc. Happy to hear its the last in that series/OS. Considering it was really expensive i rate it 2/10.
I just bought one and it looks to be just fine. The LCD quality is poor but the speaker is good. The volume keys are extremely annoying but not as bad as slow response which is very disappointing. The price of this handset is cheap enough to provoke anyone. Overall I give 7/10.
Majid, 11 Feb 2009 Im just like you because I want to change my cell phone too and cant decide which one is bett... morei think you should go for w960i because the nokia touchscreen phones are not as good as the sonny ericsson.
if the screen in the 5800 has any thing wrong, you can throw it in the garbich.

Push, 12 Feb 2009How can i lock the screen when i am in a call, because always it go in to hold mode when hold ... moreTo Push... when you are on a call. there is an icon on left top corner. tap it and it will ask you to unlock the status bar or something like that, click yes on it and then click that top left corner icon again and you'll see an option to lock the screen there.
