  • Ke6n13 Feb 19, 2009

    My left (select and go back) button also doesn't work. sometimes if i squeeze the right side of the phone, it'll work. If it doesn't and I'm stuck in a menu, i hit the bottom right button (ATT internet connection) but then hit cancel right away so that it takes me back to the main screen, a way of avoiding turning it off every time. A more permenant solution would be nice since I'm not covered by warranty anymore.

Im having the same problem with my phone! Only the back button wont work and sometimes i have to open the battery pack up take it out and put it back in just to turn it on. Sometimes the power button wont work unless i take the battery out. The back button worked for a while now until i left it in my gym locker at school and pulled it out. I had 5 texts and after i responded to all of them i went to go back to the main screen so i wasnt stuck in the menu and it didnt work. Its happened before but its SOO annoying! I just keep shutting it off!

The Sony Ericsson w580i is one of Sony Ericsson's lines of Walkman-branded handsets. These music focused phones are popular globally, but few of them have made it to the United States. The W580i is one of the few that has, carried by AT&T. And it's a good pick for the carrier.
The sound quality through the included stereo earbud headphones is superb and if you turn on the MegaBass boost feature in the Walkman player, the phone outputs full and powerful sound that booms. The W580i also has support for A2DP which allows the phone to play music via Bluetooth to stereo headphones. Like other Walkman phones, the W580i supports music files in the MP3/AAC/AAC+/e-AAC+) formats and you can rip music CDs using the included Disc2Phone software for Windows or using Sony Ericsson DVD Ripper for Mac.

Phone receives calls but caller can't hear me.

well, check if you are able to record anything at all on your phone. If yes,  there's something wrong with the
firmware. If not, provided that your phone works perfect in all the other aspects ,
 then there's something wrong with the speakers..

Callers not able to hear my voice.

Most of the times its the microphone problem. But first, go to settings and then Sound, check the equalizer, play with it a little bit. If that doesnt work, take it to where you bought it from, they will install a new microphone for you.
