Why do these idiotic designers always have to place the keys so close together? The keypad on this phone is a great design until you get to the call and cancel keys which are almost molded into the soft keys. Fucking stupid asses...
SE arent the only ones, but on most of their phones they have this same tendency of putting the soft keys right next to the call or cancel keys. This is one of the main reasons why I have bypassed a lot of the SE models, cause I hate pressing two or three keys at the same time...
I would have chosen Nokia purely due to the fact that it is alot more customizable than the W980 app-wise.
The W980 though cannot be overlooked in regards to audio-quality. SE is not in my good books and hasn't been for a while, but they did get one thing right - audio algorthym. I've gotten through Samsungs, iRivers, Apples, and Sonys, all of which were full-time mp3s and iRiver and Samsung having DSPs unlike the W980, but it beats them all hands-down.
I do hear Cowon S9 and the new Sony Walkman A series do pretty well with proper DSPs, but have yet to test them out. Though I guess that the Sony A will sound pretty similar...
can anyone tell me where to download dictionary for this phone? thanks a lot~~

Could never powered it again. Tried 1 million things but nothing worked. Even wrote to sony ericsson. Nothing worked. people just be careful, look for all the flaws it has and then go for it if you want to. peace!

I'm overseas now in a snow storm and tried taking photos this morning. I saw the pink tinge issue which (I think) a HTC suffered from. It's gone now, but I think it occured due to cooler temperatures (-12'C). Just something I thought would be good to share.
The newer firmware does seem to make the navigation using the external screen slightly laggy. But that is the only issue I have. Everything else, including the visual bugs which I ain't too happy with but is copable, are still there with the new firmware, so unless you are having issues, I wouldn't recommend an upgrade.
I got this phone for Christmas. It works very good. It has an sightly older firmware, (R3DA028) but since it works I am not updating it for now besides I cannot determine how/what the latest firmware would be better (Anyone know?)
It's very attractive and has all the functions I need, FM radio, FM transmitter, mp3 player, and camera, a few games and applications.
