General Problem with w580: Right side a little bit loose?

I just got a new w580i from Wirefly. I returned one last week because the right side of the phone felt a little bit loose. When I clicked a button on the right side, it felt like there was a little bit of space between the top and bottom parts of the slider and the right side would move a little when I clicked the C or end call button.

I've had 2 phones with that problem already and I was wondering if that's a general problem with the phone or if I just keep getting $hitty phones from wirefly. I know they're kind of shady and maybe they just sent me the old one I sent back to them.

Anyone else have this problem? I'm wondering if it's a general problem with the w580 or not.

Please help me out. Thanks for your help,

email client?

I got the AT&T branded W580i and would like to set it up to check email on a custom domain.

But the email client seems to only support pre-configed options.

Is there an email client for this phone that lets me create any account I want? Would I get something like this if I unbranded it? are there 3rd party email clients available for this phone?

Self recorded ring tones?

Can you use the voice recorder to record something and then set what you've recorded as a ring tone?

Kinda dumb question

Ive had my 580 for a few weeks now and i've been having alot of signal issues, and by alot i mean dropping calls anywhere from 3 to 10 times a day. a co worker has a cheap pay as you go phone with her att sim card in it and she gets better signal than i do. is there anything that can be done to boost the signal? im pretty sure there isnt but i figured it doesnt hurt to ask. thanks

Syncing contacts

I am having trouble using the Sony Ericsson Sync Manager to sync contacts, mostly because I don't use Outlook. Is there another program that it works with? Is there another app to backup contacts off the phone?

weird w580i problem

I've had my w580 for about 2 months now and I like it a lot, but recently on a trip i was messing with it and the screen goes really really dark.I had it on 50% backlight already and this was even darker than that (I think the backlight actually goes completely off) It stays like that too until i lock the phone then it goes back to normal till i unlock it again.

unbranding & warranty

ive been seeing this as a common topic & i should set something straight as i see it.. i work w/ warranty exchng dept & as i know it any tampering with the software installed w/ phn can be veiwed as voiding the warranty or a reason to consider an phn out of warranty per what manufacturer calls "unauthorized modification" so if u try to exchange unit w/ excahnge program with whatever carrier ur phn is pre programmed under it will come back to bite u w/ an oow fee.. 😈

how can you lock your internet button on front? please- need answer

Just got this phone and my husband is having a problem with internet button being pushed and phone connecting to internet. He even put it in lock mode and somehow buttons were pushed while in the case to unlock it and then internet button was accidentally pushed and connected. He's working/up and down/active all day-we have one of the data packs with unlimited net use but plan to discontinue so this would be a huge problem if we can't figure out how to lock internet button. This phone is a great little phone but we'll have to return it for another clamshell if this can't be fixed.

thanks a bunch!

Please Help. Does anyone know how to format the memory stick?

I was having problems with my memory stick so I decided to format it on my desktop...then I read in the manual that it should only be formatted via the handset. Now my sony does not recognize my memory stick. Anyone know what can be done???

Lost Phone Lock Code

Okay, okay, so I trusted someone with setting up an additional line on my account. Of course they weren't responsible with the phone so I "repo'd" it. They decided it would be fun to attempt to brick my phone, by changing the unlock code. Not the PIN code, but the unlock code. Is there anyway to recover???

Battery life?

I have this phone, and I have barely been able to get 3 days of standby, even with it off at night. Is this typical, or just a fluke model? My step counter is on, but I do not use the music functions regularly.

Is menu on w580 from AT&T or SE?

Hi, I want to get this phone, but I have a question first. I've seen the latest menu setup on Nokia and Samsung phones from AT&T and I absolutely hated it. I hated the fact that the first thing it defaults to is the AT&T mall and you can't change it in settings. I couldn't find the w580 in the store to take a look, so I was wondering if it also has the crappy AT&T menu, or if it has it's own menu designed by SE?

That rigid idiotic AT&T menu absolutely drove me nuts. Partly because of it, I had to return both the Nokia and the Samsung.

Thank you!

W580i - Album art

This phone offers the ability to display album art, but how do you get it to work? I have all the album art in Windows Media player, do I need to save the artwork to the albums folder on my memory card?
