Sony Ericsson S500i


Well-known Member
Evening all,

my daughter is hounding me for one of the above phones for her birthday.

However, i dont have any experience at all of Sony phones as i have always had Nokias.

Could anyone shed any light on this phone particularly if there are any probs or things to look out for with them?

Any comments or opinions would be very much appreciated!:thumbsup:

hi, ive had sony phones for ages and cannot fault them for what i need in a phone:thumbsup:

i think the s500i,going by all reveiws,is one of sony's worst to date. problems with reliability but most importantly the keys crack quite easily:thumbsdow

if its for your daughter is she into music ??? orange currently have the w580i walkman phone at £64.99 which is more or less the same phone which on release had the same probs(cracking keypad) as the s500i but a second batch is apparently more reliable with excellent walkman player.

best bet is to google it mate and make your own mind up:)
