sip, 12 Aug 2008Well, the phone is my hands for 5 days now, and it is really a p... 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 wallp... 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.

  • ishu

A question..,
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!

Anna -

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

I'm thinking about changing my new C902 for SE W980. I'm not entirely happy with it as I got used to and loved my old SE W890i. Does anybody think it's a good idea? I'm just not sure about the camera lens, which you guys say is easy to cover with own finger when trying to take a photo. Any suggestions?
I love the SE W980 design
