My very first cell phone was a Sony Ericsson W580i; I got it on Christmas '08 when i was 12 years old, in 7th grade. I am a hardcore texter, and have been from the moment i unwrapped my phone, and I would like to say that although it doesn't have a fancy qwerty keyboard or anything, I have had the eastest time texting on it, and whenever i use other people's phones who have touch screen or qwerty keyboards, I sometimes find it harder than using mine. It's extrememly user friendly and easy to navigate, which is a major plus. I never really looked at the manual, I just played with it for a few minutes, and within a few weeks of having my phone, I knew how to do absolutely everything int he world with it. It does have email and internet, but I have never used them because my phone plan does not include this service, so I couldn't tell you about them. But, one thing I can say, is that this phone has exceptional multimedia. It doesn't take ""phone-quality"" pictures, it takes very clear, pretty pictures, along with a great video camera, which has been awesome to capture all of my memories through these past few years. It has a very large memory which has held over 200 pictures and videos, along with hundreds of songs for me. It has great sound quality, and a sound recorder that makes it easy to put virtually any song onto your phone; along with a built in Walkman MP3 player, which you can sync songs to from your computer. It has a pedometer, calculator, calander, and a reliable alarm clock that has been waking me up every weekday morning for 2 years, along with the ability to leave yourself notes, and to set tasks with reminders, so you never forget anything important. It also has a password holder, and a lot of other great features that aren't commonly found for free on many phones these days. It has a good battery life, it has always performed well for me. You only have to charge it for about 2 hours, and then it is completely charged, which is good if you don't have much time; because I have recently discovered that if you text all day and then come home from school, you can charge it for about 30 minutes and then go to a football game, and it will last long enough for your ride to call you at the end. :) On an average summer day, I would charge it all night, and then in the morning I would start texting at about 10 AM, and my phone would last me until about 8-10 with absolute nonstop use. I generally just charge it every night, and it will usually last me from the moment I wake up until right before I go to bed, which is basically perfect. I have never had any issues with the phone being ""bulky,"" becaus it is not. It's not too small, either; it's the perfect size, and you can trust me, because I am extremely picky with phones, and this is the only one that has ever truly pleased me. For a few months, I switched phones, to an LG Neon, with a slide out kwerty keyboard and a few touch screen options, and I must say, I HATED it. I have used many other people's phones, just to text my parents after mine died, or things of that sort, and even fancy smartphones have never seemed as good to me as my Ericsson. In fact, I'm a freshman now, and my contact is nearly up, and all the phones that I have looked at have seemed extremely mediocre to me, which is what led me back to the Ericsson website; I want another Ericsson phone because mine has been extraordinary. Now, I must add, that this phone is EXTREMELY durable. I am one of those people who KILLS electronics, I drop it SO MUCH. In the summer, I take it down to the beach with me to text while I tan, and get sand inside, yet it still slides perfectly. I set it on the sink next to me while I wash my face, and leave it sitting on top of the toilet while I'm in shower, which is the equivalent of taking it into a sauna. It gets LOADS of ""water damage,"" yet nothing has ever gone wrong with the screen. This past summer, I was sitting over a storm drain, right above the grate. I dropped my phone in, and it crashed about 8 feet down at the bottom. It was at a parade, and after the parade was over, I got an awesome fireman to help me get it put, and it is still functioning perfectly, 5 months later. I know people who have dropped their phones maybe twice, or three times, and are expieriencing major difficulties with other types of phones, yet I have dropped my Ericsson literally about 100 times, and it has not had any difficulties. I must add that I love the was the texting works, and it has never been a lagging type of phone, and it has an amazing photo editing software that comes on it, called PhotoDJ, and a video editting software also. Plus, if you're bored, you can compose your own music, haha. My Ericsson is absolutely the most amazing phone EVER, and now that I have to get a new phone, I'm legitimately sad, because I'm pretty sure that this is the best phone I will ever have. I know other people who have gotten new phones, and say that they miss their Ericssons. I reccomend this phone to anyone and everyone, because it has the organization for a businessman, along with the amazing feautured for any teenager, and the simplicity for someone's grandmother. I think that this phone is absolutely perfect, and if you ever have the oppurtunity, you should DEFINITELY try it out. :)
