Sony Ericsson W580 Review

Sony Ericsson W580, being a Walkman variant of S500, disposes with the extra functions, typical of this series: an improved music player, FM radio, as well as the new Shake technology for changing tracks by a jerky movement. Like many of the new models of the manufacturer, this one also features quite interesting Flash themes, which add some freshness to its appearance. One is left with a pleasant feeling when operating it and its functionality is just sufficient to meet the basic needs of the musically oriented users.

The Sony Ericsson 580i's are absolutely the worst phones I have seen in the 14 years I've been a Cingular/AT&T customer. Out of 7 - 580i's all 7 were bad, we have a family plan and are switching out phones again. Screens go black, phones access the internet & make and recieve calls when locked and in a case (thus without your knowledge if you are wearing your phone in a clip you never know when you have an open line or who is listening to your conversations), buttons crack.

As an AT&T call center rep, I have had more complaints about this phone than any other that we sell...the cracking keys are the most commen problem, but we do get plenty of complaints about the screen going out as well. We should just replace these with at the very least W595s...
