Summary: Spent over one hour on support with Sony Ericsson who finally figured out this phone was never registered in the US. They tried to change the language to UK, but that would not work either. It will not sync with my computer because the internet on the phone itself is in Japanese. The games menu shows garbled characters such as boxes, semi-colons, etc. The software cd that came with the phone is useless. It will not find the phone.
Summary: I own this phone and have had it for over a year now. When I was looking around for phones I wanted one that would serve as a phone and an MP3 player. I was attracted to this phone because it is sleek & shiny and I always prefer flip phones as there is less chance of damage to the main screen upon dropping. During the time I have had it though there have been more disadvantages to outweigh the advantages for this handset.
Excerpt: "I have owned the Sony Ericsson W980i i thought it was a let down from how it looked and was put across also it has built in 8GB memory which i thought was a bit much also after you put 100+ songs on it the phone it starts turning off itself i brought this phone on contract and sent the phone back no end of time's wondering why it kept turning off itself eventually i realised it was the music pictures etc. . that was making it turn off i don't see ...
Pros: 8GB Memory, 3 . 2 MegaPixel
Cons: Starts Turning Itself Off After You Put Music On It, Scratches Easily
Summary: Guys, remember this was designed as a walkman phone not a camera phone. Location of camera is not comfy though. After using this for about 4 months, the USB/headphone/charger port was loosing.ITs so difficult to attached the charger/headphone/USB into it and need to push it so hard in order to work.Its so frustrating to wiggle the charger in order to work. Headset and USB sync cable sometimes work after pushing many times into the port. It will just temporarily work.
Pros: sound quality
Cons: camera location, loosing USB/Headphone/charger port
Conclusion: очень жалко деньги и нервы!!! Я конечно не советчик, но не советую покупать телефон!!
Pros: Много памяти! Красивый телефон чем он и превлекает... Красивые презентации!
Cons: Где то через 3 месяца после покупки отлетела задняя крышка (просто вынула из кармана а крышки уже нет!)А в августе 2010 он перестал заряжаться от родной зарядки пришлось купить новою и сней он вскоре перестал работать. Потом где то в октябре 2010 у него исчезло изображение!
