w980 vs w960, 17 Dec 2009w980 vs w960 loudspeaker?i think both have the same loudness. well, it depends or your speaker condition's too. in fact, its walkman. any walkman had loud speakers compare to other series of SE..well,in my opinion.. =)
I've been using SE phones for a couple of years and i find this phone overall not bad. Although sometimes the sensitivity of the walkman screen isnt good, but its mostly ok.
anbu, 30 Nov 2009anyone know how to extend message tone for w980? I just buy this phone last day, when I change... moretry using SE W960.. I've used one lately.When I receive a message, it will not stop until the whole song is played.so, i have to cut the song into 10 seconds because it really annoys u when u have 3 or 4 messages coming through.someone correct me if I'm wrong.Sorry for bad english
shane, 14 Dec 2009Fm transmitter?the FM transmitter is like u can connect your walkman (your songs inside the phone) to the radio and listen it through the speaker.it works with the audio player inside the car too. but u must synchronized the frequency first,if I'm not mistaken. by the way,i used my friend's w980 cause I'm using w960..
From last 2 months I am suffering because the flap of this phone has broken and the phone is under warranty . Despite all efforts i am not getting any feed back and the dealer at Noida is also helpless . My 25000/ has gone waste and company is not taking care of the product and not giving any after sales service Anand Singhal M : 9910110983
So have you tried updating the firmware at all? This is my 3rd year using SE and I've yet to experience freezing or any software related issues.
I can't really say call clarity on the W980 is good. It's ok, but I can't call it good. Samsung does well in loud places (me being an ex-Samsung user), but with the W980 the sound is too 'breaky' and sounds pretty bad. To top that off, the mike is in the wrong place. But then , the W980 does better in quieter places.
First can i just say I have been a faithful SE user for quite some years. I have one of these. I took one in replacement for a snazzy SE K850i camera Phone, which kept locking up on me. To be fair, As a phone its been spot on, call clarity A1, although a few issues with the original firmware but after that all was good. APART FROM the FM transmitter. I used it to kisten to an album at work and hey presto, the phone locked up, and basically, everytime i use the fm transmitter now, it does the same thing, it has now even extended to normal mp3 playback using headphones now. Not impressed. Too much crammed into too small a space methinks. Gonna get me a Nokia nextime round

Mate - go for the 5800. It's worth alot more, is 'hip' which everyone but me is into these days....
I can't comment on the sound quality of the 5800, but I understand it is good.
And yes, tell them to stick it where you know best

If you recently just bought it, then it is likely to be second hand and requires a deep format.
Go into file manager and format the memory there. Although you can use Windows to format the memory, it ain't recommended. OR, you can update the firmware to the latest one (provided you have yet to do so) which will format the memory for you - saves formatting twice.
If you've had the phone for a while, then try searching the phone with Windows and see what is taking up the space. It is probably a file somewhere away from the file manager structure (like a random Windows made thing)
Hope that helps.
