    I'm having the same problem. I have a SE w580i that I got as a new contract with AT&T. I went to install "Converter", an aplication to convert pounds to onces, and miles to kilometers, and stuff like that. It said operation failed. I've tried to update the software, reset settings, reset device, nothing has helped. tried leaving the battery out for a couple of seconds. This is very annoying. I just bought it on october/07 so It's under warranty, but I rather fix it than go through the process of warranty.

    I have the same problem. I was playing a game and closed it. The next day I could not get into games or applications. I tried calling customer service for help, but got no where. If someone has a solution, I'd sure love to know about it. Thanks.

Actually, just got my back today from repair. Called Sony ericsson about the problem and they told me to send it in for repair. 'Cause it's under warranty (Which I wasn't asked if it was) I also went ahead and asked about the broken keypad. it took less than two weeks. Had to use my old s710. So far I have not been able to find a solution. Maybe flashing the phone could help. I think that's what they did. Because it looks like it came from SE instead of Att.

Are you going through "file manager" then "all files" then "games" or "applications"
Or through main desktop (9 icons)
Problem could be available memory to run these applications, check available memory by pressing unlock phone and press simultaniously the two buttons rhs top of phone, on the side ( used for zoom with camera and volume ) this will detail specs of pysical and available memory.
Make sure there is enough, refer to manual for minimum spec.
Sorry cant remember minimum.
