Hi guys, i was wondering if anyone has experience with the SE W580. I wanted to know if the material of the key pad of the W980 is the same as the W580. 'Cause i've had the W580 and half of the buttons were cracked within the first week! And i don't want that again. Or just a comment on the W980 keys would be fine. If there not the same, then i'm definitly buying this phone. Everything else is just awsum!so i've read..
Thanx :-)

I am thinking of buying the phone, cause frankly all phones on the market are not exactly the sort of one I want. This to me is the perfect match. I couldnt care more or less if it had wireless.

However I wanted to know, how good/bad the camera exactly is? Is it as good as it is advertised, i.e. 3MP one or below standard?

For example I have mine set to ring for 25 seconds. Maximum I think is 30 seconds unless you take off all diverts to voicemail etc. Hope that helps :)

EXPENSIVE but worth it unless the first day it gets stolen

Anonymous, 17 Sep 2008hi, can anyone tell me how long does the battery last? Battery life is quite good. I had the C902 prior to this and the battery life was no good which is why I upgraded to this. To give you an indication. I use it to play music for around 2 and a half hours, train ride to work and home and for my nightly jog. On top of that I take a few calls a day and the battery lasts me between 2-3 days. Although I did take off 3G given that I don't need it as I dont make video calls. Hope that helps but overall I am happy with the battery life, I would say you would be pleased with it.

Thanks for that Sony fan, i'll give it a go, sounds like it might work.. but now I have another problem, when for example renaming music files in the File Manager app on the phone, or in Windows Explorer via USB on the PC, the changes are not displayed in the Walkman app on the phone.. the changes are visible under File Manager on the phone itself but not under Walkman where it still shows the old file names, I've selected the 'Update Media' but still the same problem..!

  • Quik

Compare to the W902, which is better for the audio quality?..I'm really confuse between W980 and W902..

Miguel, 15 Sep 2008Hi there everyone, I just bought my w980 phone 3 days ago, and w... moreHi Miguel..
Try going to the folder that has the song, pick the song you want to move, then click on more...then go down to the option of manage files...Select Move.
That will take you to a selection of
*new folder
*ringtunes
*VideoDJ
or whatever your phone has...
scroll to the folder you want and click on paste. That should move it to that certain folder and should stay there.
If you've tried that and it doesnt help then take back your phone and ask for a replacement.
Thats the best I do so far.. Take care..
