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.
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... (continues)
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?
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.
found a black one on daydeal.com, as well as another model (sony 810) . why arent these on this site to review? it said that they were unlocked to any gsm carrier so does that mean that att doesnt sell it and ill have to get it online?
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.
