Summary: I bought this phone on behalf of a friend and not two weeks after purchase, the phone is not working. Something is wrong with either the batery OR the On/Off buton. The phone's charge died and then it wouldn't recharge nor Turn On after that. I'm in Costa Rica, so it's going to be very difficult to make the warraty effective on this product. Weird thing is that it came sealed, completely new from the seller, so I don't know what's the deal here.

Excerpt: "The W380i is one of Sony Ericsson's Walkman phones although I must admit that had nothing to do with the reason I bought it and I have never actually used this feature. I chose the phone as it is a clam-shell style, which suits me as I feel the screen and buttons are much better protected and because it was available on Tesco Mobile PAYG for £79.99. The fact that mine is dark purple with pink accents and is super slim and stylish was a bonus. The ...
Pros: Looks good, reliable and nice size
Cons: Camera isn't great and walkman is difficult to work .

Excerpt: "I bought this phone last year after seeing and thinking how great the purple version looked but came across one in pink which was even better, so i snapped it up without reading much of its features, it wasn't till later i got it home i realised it has no video capture included, i was a little disappointed but decided to keep it because aside from that the phone seemed good, it has great sound on the mp3 player and radio and very easy to use. a few ...
Summary: I have had 3 new phones this year - ranging from middle to lower price range and I have to say this is the nicest one to use and it looks good too. I don't suppose I will live with it for more than 6 months but it suits me for now.
Pros: simple, pretty and no extras that I dont use!!
Summary: This phone switches itself off whenever it feels like it - often if I receive two texts at once, or am in the middle of typing a text. It also cannot reach empty battery level, because the subsequent days will be spent turning it on and off (or rather hitting it until it turns on only to find that there is no signal being found, "Searching," remaining at the top) and battery and SIM removal and re-insertion.
Pros: Walkman, camera is decent, looks cool, people never fail to be impressed by the braille buttons on the front, decent battery life
Cons: turns self off and makes a general nuisance of itself, no video,
