guys stay away from this fone its not the best, fm radio does not work musci sounds crackly it turns its self off when it fells like it o and it took me 8 hours to put 4gb s of music on it, and no it not just a one off i have had four of these fone s just to give you guys a heads up peace out
I really dont get it, I've search the internet some says battery is good some says not. My battery sucks too, this is getting frustrating
If you go to the se/ apps on your handset you can get this and they work..
A light saber that swooshes round as you swing the fone for trekky people..
A spirit level called water level and it works accuratly with built in accelarometer,,
Their is a gps app to attach your w980 to and external gps module,,
Tracker app wich you enter you height calories etc it like an excerscise app that works via gps module,,
Vtap dont know what it does but its free,,
I have already got,,walkmate,,world 3d clock ,,accuweather,,converter,,music mate 5,,
Just install opera mini,,yahoo go !fring and shozu and your almost up to smartfone functions..
With 2g set 70% screen briteness i get 3 days of moderate use..
Camera gives reasonable snaps that are quite clear to me and video is smooth and not as pixellated as k850i..
Also in entertainment you have games track id and Location services were google maps is with settings for my favourites,,status info,,log and settings..The usual remote control and record sound is here too..and a demo tour video..
Another thing to mention is that at bottom of media player in settings is media update wich sorts and updates media and should be done when any media is added so it is easy recognised by w980..
This fone should put me on till w995 comes out..
I bought the set five months back.After the usage of two months, phone was getting switched off quite often.After reporting to dealer, initially software was redownloaded,still problem remained same.Later on the set was replaced.After the usage of two months again new set also getting switched off quite often.Is is a common problem in this model?
This is a great handset, has got very good battery life, have been using for the last three days wothout any xtra charge. superb music!!
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2009its not realy walkman my w910 is realy beter than this why???
Excellent phone but battery is too weak. It barely last 2 days of moderate use (10 sms, 1 min call, no music/game) unlike the strong battery life stated in the review.
oop!! sorry, that was wrong typing. i'd say
Base on my exp. i prefer w980 rather than ipod/iphone, clearer especially bass. ahh!! just set the EQ correctly! WOW i have to say, the sound quality is NOT really worse than SONY Walkan, + stereo widening works just brillian => produce like surround sound. however, i hate there is only one custom EQ setting unlike NOKIA, still poor SE!

lots of apps on w980 will report wen broadband back on..cam takes ok snaps its vid better than k850
go to se apps online on w980 4 lightsabre it works perfect and free
leonavy, 08 Apr 2009this phone have flash for camera???no..
if u consider about cam, go 4 w902..
Anonymous, 07 Apr 2009Hey
which one is more expensive w980 or w902?
w902 has 5mp cam + flash + autofocus
w980 has better sound quality through headset, cam is only 3.2mp, no autofcs no flash..
To help performance dont use animated wallpapers and go to media center and scroll to settings and select update media when you have put any new vids or mp3s on w980..i have shozu on this and yahoo 3 go and the app your after for msm is fring but do not know if its java app to suit w980 but will find out
i love working in a phone shop.
'that phone's ugly'
to be fair, my mate has this and i didn't really like it much
