S500 keypad cracked

I guess most of you have heard about the keypad problems the first shippings of the S500 had. Sony Ericsson stated that it was some sort of chemical reaction on the black/green version that made the keypad crack. However some yellow ones also had this problem, and it can’t be due to the green paint on these! So, as you most likely know, I recently got a S500 for my mom and generally she’s pretty pleased with it. But, but, but… A couple of days ago I spotted the keypad problem on this one, too! I couldn’t believe it, but it was definitely cracking. So yesterday we went to a shop and had it sent to some repairer to fix it (and while we were at it, I told them to fix the loose slider, too! πŸ˜‰ ). It’ll be back in a few weeks and in the meantime she’s using my old K800.

For those of you who are still waiting for the review of S500, it’ll come online soon! But at the moment I’ve got a lot of other things that are more important 😦
