Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson TM506 is a stylish looking phone in today's phone era (in America at least since Asia seems to have more variation). It's a flip/clamshell phone that comes in bold colors(either green/black, Orange/black, or Amber/black) and performs as a functional messaging phone. The TM506 doesn't have a qwerty keyboard but rather the standard phone dials which I prefer in a nonsmart phone because I think landscape slideout keyboards are lame.
Excerpt: I got this phone, the Sony Ericsson TM509 about 9 months ago, as part of the freebie selection from T-Mobile. It is a slick looking phone (I picked the black), and is very sturdy. Between my clumbsiness and my four kids it has certainly taken a beating, and just keeps on working. My only issues with the phone are that the battery does not last very long. It stays at 4 bars for about a day, and then as soon as it starts dropping it is as good as dead. I have to...
The Sony Ericsson TM506 has both positive and negative to it.

Excerpt: After my Motorola Rizr phone bit the dust, I searched my cell phone company's site for a new phone and came across the Sony Ericsson TM506. I thought it looked really nice. I even decided to go back to a flip phone (instead of a slide phone) to give it a try. I have been somewhat pleased. Because it takes a memory card that allows me to store a lot of text messages and pictures so that I do not have to delete them more than monthly.
Excerpt: I recieved this phone from my fiance because i was having alot of problems with my old phone. I really like this phone because the key pad on it is soft and very easy to use. It takes very nice pictures! When I first got the phone I was having a hard time with the texting part. When you are texting it starts by showing you all the letters on that number and you have to go and pick the letter you want, which takes a very long time!

Summary: First phone I've ever had break, at it's hinge. After... maybe 2 years. It has a great camera, which takes much better pics (in all kinds of light) than any iphones I've used, but with the unreinforced plastic at a place that gets the most use? Like much of Sony's design, it looks good, but doesn't cut it. I can still take pics of course, and make calls, but the phone flips like a broken cat tail. So. Not terribly useful.
Summary: Initially, I was attracted to this phone by its look and the demo. However, this phone is slow to respond to prompts, links, and is pressure resistant per se. I stopped liking it from the first day I bought it in 2009. Today I replaced it with Samsung but their internal memories and capabilites are not comparable, and, unfortunately, Sony Ericsson TM506 is a better looking one!
