Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I am a Handphone Freak..and I normally go to this shop at Far East 1st floor beside an art shop near to the toilet. Can't remember the name of the shop but they did sell cheap mobiles w inclusive of the 7% interest. Plus they take high prices if you intend to trade in/sell off your current hp. And it is a local/full set w 1yr guarantee.Check it out!!
Geesss...I am so into this thing!..Currently, I am using G900 and when I saw SEW980, I simply lay my eyes on it. But before I get this thing, few questions:
1. Is the volume as loud as W910 or W960?
2. Does it lag?
3. Does the front easily scratch?
anna, 14 Aug 2008Does the battery last long tho? My C902 has a poor battery and faulty camera and I think I'm g... more re: the battery. It's been weird. the first 3-4 days of having the phone, the battery only lasted a day and a half. Now, two weeks later, the battery will last two and a half days. Maybe I'm just breaking the batter in.
how about the front camera? can we used it for take picture or video call only?? anybody can answer.. thx.. =)

Anonymous, 12 Aug 2008eh cartoon, to reject call when the flip is closed just press the volumn key(up OR down) twice... moreGreat job! You're right! press the volume button at the side of the phone cancels the call! haha. Good info! This is the first time i use clamshell phone!
Btw JAMMI, YOU"RE WRONG :D !!!
sip, 12 Aug 2008Well, the phone is my hands for 5 days now, and it is really a pleasure. I've had touch Diamon... moreWell SIP you're right!
I tried some snap shots today.
The quality of the pitures isn't that great. My former phone was SE w880i.
I think the quality of camera of w980 (3.2 Mpixel) is lousier than w880i, although w880i is only a 2M pixel. Can't believe it though.
But i never believe in cellphone's camera, no matter it's 5 mpixel, or 8 mpixel. The reason we stick to SE WALKMAN hp is mainly because of the superior MUSIC PLAYER!
For Camera? Just get a digicam!
I dont have this phone, but on all the other SE phones I had, the LED goes on and off when the battery is really flat. It is not for miss calls or sms or faulty phones.
As soon as you charge it, it stop blinking.
ishu, 14 Aug 2008A question.., After the close, does the phone display the wallpaper in the mini-screen like t... moresorry no lol. only the Walkman thingy will appear. but u can use the side button on the right to change btw WM/radio/time&date display. but it's not able to change permanently because it will just return to the WM screen after u open and close the flip again by default. kinda bumped about it as i wanted to have the time&date display as my default for the external screen.
After the close, does the phone display the wallpaper in the mini-screen like the N76/Moto razr??
Other than displaying the walkman, what other features have been embedded to be shown on the mini-screen?
lol for all u people out there wondering wtf the LED light does on the left side of the phone, heres the answer i got from SE: "With regards to your inquiry, the LED light in the left side of the phone is an indication that if it is blinking with a red light is that the phone is hanged or is faulty already. It is an indication for us to check that the phone is having some problems internally. It is perfectly normal if that will not be blinking with any indications." An extremely dumb 'feature' if u asked me, it should have been for un-read sms and missed calls!

lockplay, 14 Aug 2008Anna - Yes, the camera lens IS in an awkward position. Whatever hand your are holding ... morebuttons are slightly small i agree but u'll get used to it. and i think u'll just flip it open to answer and close to end call. doesn't really matter if u r in a hurry to do that as its pretty easy.
lockplay, 14 Aug 2008Anna - Yes, the camera lens IS in an awkward position. Whatever hand your are holding ... morei think it's ok that the call/end call are small coa it's a flip-phone ofter all, u know, flip open to answer, close it to end call.

Yes, the camera lens IS in an awkward position. Whatever hand your are holding it in - your pointer finger will get in the way. You have to hold your hand in an awkward, uncomfortable position. Picture quality is pretty good, though.
My biggest problem with the phone is the Call and Drop Call buttons. They are Way too SMALL. You end up pressing the Shortcuts menu button all the time.
Maybe i'm just too used to my W850i - i love that phone
I bought this phone 2 weeks ago and have been disappointed with it. Yes, it is slow - I'm not sure why. But, on the brighter side, I finally figured out the MMS settings.
Just call your service provider and work with them. Ask for an OTC setting. I live in the U.S. and this phone is so new that T-Mobile did not even have the phone settings. We tried the settings that are congruent with W960 but no luck. Finally, he used W910 settings, and, Bingo.
good luck with your phone. I hope Sony will have support on their site soon. Even they don't have any new download settings for this phone
