Question about AT&T Sony Ericsson W580i Cell Phone - White
Posted on Aug 07, 2011
Plugin your USB Cable and using the Sony Ericksson app on your computer, update your firmware. If you update your firmware and it STILL doesn't work, then i am afraid its the phone.

You can master reset you device and your settings.............it might solve your problem. Try to master reset your settings first, if the problem persists then device master reset.

Try restoring your phone to the factory settings (do a master reset), if do so , most of the software related issues will be solved.Otherwise the unit should be observed by a skillful mobile technician.Regards,Ramaly

Such problem on a sony ericsson phone can be caused by one of two major reasons.
First of all, if it so happens that when you turn on your bluetooth and you try to pair another device but the device fails to discover your phone, it might be a mere issue of you not setting your phone's bluetooth to be discovered. All you need to do is to check under the bluetooth settings and you should see something like "allow devices to discover bluetooth", it may be in another term but basically should mean that.
Secondly, your phone might need some major updates. It is also very likely that on production of your phone, some issues might have occurred which might have disabled your bluetooth from functioning properly. If the company discovers any such errors, they are most likely to fix it in a software update. You can visit the link below to see more information on updating your device software.
Update W580i firmware
If all the above doesn't work, you might have to ask a repairer to flash your phone or better still, get a replacement as the phone might have some other serious issues yet to be discovered.
Hope this was helpful?

Enable your bluetooth discovery mode.

Normally people confirm the bluetooth ON by looking in to other phone. Showing bluetooth ON on W580i is by two ways. In spite having bluetooth ON, you can get as it is OFF if the blutooth item "visibility" is kept as "hide phone" In this case your phone will be viewed by only the devices (including phones) which you have allowed access by including them in "My Devices". The bluetooth sign is differently shown in such case. Make your the item "visibility" under bluetooth menu to "show phone". This should work.Apart from this keep in mind that certain make & models of other manufacturers may or may not support Sony Ericsson phones for bluetooth, which may be intermittent. If this does not solve your problem, then back up your contacts & other data on memory card and go to General menu - Master reset - reset settings. All your settings will be reset & start afresh. The last resort will be to update the software through Sony Ericsson Update Service.
