memory capacity

The Sony ericcson website says the W580i phone supports 2gb in memory. I just purchased a San Disk 4gb memory stick micro (M2). Will this work in the phone? Did I buy the wrong thing?
Thanks

w580i vs. w810i?

anyone experienced both phones?

I have an 810i and i love this phone, except that the volume is too low.
Does the 580 have better/louder volume (on the ear)?
Would you change a 810 for a 580 or a v3xx - AT&T has offered to!

Thank you very much for your thoughts.

Shoddy construction?

I've been waiting for this phone to come from AT&T for quite awhile (I wish they had the s500 'cause my favorite color is green! 😁 Oh, well).

Now that it's here, I've read reviews here with complaints about minor things--hard to remove the SIM card, difficult battery cover, etc. However, I just read several reviews at another site about keys that crack and covers that peel away. 😲 Do these claims sound valid? Any thoughts or experiences?

I love SE, but I also want my phone to survive in my pocket.

fake review...

This guys review has to be bogus. Plus if you google like he asks all of the people with this problem are only him. Furthermore he keeps reposting his flake claims all over the web withe same paragraph below. Please ask phonescoop to drop his review, also who has had any of the problems he has encountered. 🙂

my w580i died 3 wks out of the box
by newwalkmanowner

The features and design are sweet. Problem is, mine died 3 weeks out of the box; I never damaged it, just turned it off one day and was never able to turn it back on again. Sony is replacing but I have to pay to ship it to them to replace a brand new flawed phone. Google the phrase "w580i won't turn on"...many others have had this problem so it's an inherent flaw of the p...

Phone book lockup

I just got my Sony W580i. It is a very decent phone but while scrolling the address book, it locks up when I get to last entry (Z) and then after 3-4 minutes it re-boots itself.

I see the last entry in the address book *NOW. I do not know what it is. Any help or work around will be highly appreciated.

Phone book backup

What is the best way to back up phone numbers from this W580i phone? I have many important numbers and the sim card can not store all.

Lights keep resetting...and unbranding.

The lights (that you can change with the theme) keep resetting to the the light greenish orange color that is standard on my white W580. I have a theme downloaded that changes those lights to blue but if I listen to a song or just open a text, they sometimes change back to the stardard color. This is also happens with a green theme called Clarity, I downloaded. Does anyone know why this happens? Does it only happen with themes that are downloaded?

Also, if I unbrand the phone, will it still be covered by the one year warranty that AT&T honors?

WMA music

Will it take wma format? I ask because sometimes the info tab isn't always correct.

light effects

ok, so I unbranded my phone. Works much better and is much easier to use.
One question, please for the love of god, someone have an answer for me.
No matter what theme I download from any site, my light effects are blue. My phone is black and orange. I do not want blue shining out of everywhere. Just orange, to match everything else, or off for that matter. Thats it, thats all I want. Simple.
Please, please tell me how to do this. I will love you for ever, make my lights orange.
I don't want to have to take a phone back that I love because I have lights bright enough to be a flashlight shining blue everywhere, please help a brother out!!

This might come off funny, but I am stupidly serious, I'm getting frustrated.

Thanks.

Focus?

Does this model have auto focus like the 810 did? Sorry if it's been asked before but I'm getting conflicting info on the net. Can someone reply that actually HAS the phone?

Workout case

Since this phone has features one would use walking/running, does anyone know of a case suitable? I've found an A013 on Ebay that is generic, but I can't believe that no one makes a case specifically for exercising with this phone.
