Hello everyone, does anyone know if you can change the settings so that when you close the flip instead of it showing the walkman feature it shows that date time etc without having to press the quick navigation key on the side and then locking it? Other than that the phone is fantastic I luv it, glad I upgraded to this from the C902. I couldn't get used to that phone in the end.
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2008what a big liar. This is the best phone ever when it comes about music and camera is very good... moreit is a good phone but ive heard better sound quality. the dpad is abit messy to use and the keys are spaced too far apart for my liking. it has crashed a few times since i got it this morning but thats because im moving music onto it i think. its a great looking phone and the camera could be in a better location and without a flash it makes taking pictures at night next to impossible.
Its a great phone in my oppinion but there are better ones if you want to spend more money
Mine arrived today and I am very pleased with it! It is an excellent phone.

This is the best phone ever when it comes about music and camera is very good too. It has all the things you need and believe me that you will love this phone just like me.
i have this phone and the s500i and trust me that s500i sounds better, louder than the w980. w980 only has a little bit of bass. when you put on the headset it all sounds about the same. this phone is a low end phone with freeze up, laggy os, bad camera and position as well. since your hands,face, everywhere on you body has oil you gonna be wiping this EVERY SECOND. navigation on the dpad is horrible. don't come up here and respond by O THE W980 SOUNDS BETTER THAN THIS AND THAT. im just comparing the sound quality wich is hard to believe but its true and i stand by it 100% bc i do have these phones to compare by.
Hi, does anyone know if there is a way to make the fm transmitter work.Always says cant use fm transmitter due to legal constrait.
shoka, 07 Sep 2008what about the camera one say good and one say bad , i want to know if the camera really good ... moreThe camera is very disapointing.
"The Sony Ericsson W980 is equipped with a 3 megapixel camera and is capable of capturing images at a maximum resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. It has neither auto focus nor flash and that speaks enough. Add the awkward location of the camera lens (exactly where your index finger will rest when holding the phone) and the lack of a dedicated camera key and you get (or probably won't get) the picture.
The camera interface also smells low-end, with basic graphics and limited number of features. It is nowhere near what some other Walkmans like the W910 or W890 have to offer. Real pity, as we are more than sure a decent camera interface wouldn't have been that much of an effort." from gsmarena official review
Hope that helped.
BassFreak, 08 Sep 2008I read that this phone has no MegaBass... can anyone tell me why ?? Will the quality be worse??BassFreak, I heard different about the megabass. I'm positive it has it. After all, it's the best audio quality walkman yet, as the W902. :)
It's a little small for my taste, it's a flip phone, the lights effect doesn't impress me that much and the camera really disapoints me. As for the design, I don't know, sometimes seems interesting sometimes seems cheap (like a failed attempt to make it particulary different from all the other walkmans). And particular models get oldfashioned much more faster. Remember the Nokia 3220! Don't At the time it was really cool with the lights and stuff, but how about a year later? :) I would personally go with the W902, for the great camera and the great design, don't know about the price yet, but it will really be a kick in the but for W980 when it comes out. :)
