Sony Ericsson Z500
1. Ring and vibrate - on the VX4400 you get one or the other (or one after the other) but not both at the same time. What about the Z500a? Can it be set to ring and vibrate at the same time?
2. Side buttons - on the VX4400 there is a side button, below the volume up/down buttons, that puts the phone in vibrate ("manner mode") and then silent mode when pressed.

The Z500 really IS a good phone...
I work in a Cingular store that carries both the Z500 & the V551 & I've used both extensively in store. I don't understand what "supposedly" makes the v551 a gift from the cellular gods, while the z500 can eat @#$# & die.
I really like the z500. The only thing it lacks when being compared to the v551 is bluetooth. The camera/video quality is comparable. The price is lower than the v551.
