Vodacom/sony Ericson W580i / two buttoms on key pad cracked

1 South Africa Review updated:

I got a contract cell phone with vodacom on march 2008.Two or three monts after i got the cell phone two buttoms cracked, was taken to be repair at vodacare Pietermaritzberg, the keypad was
replace .This month the cell phone same two buttoms cracked, was taken to be fix and they claim the cell phone has liquid damage.They want 600.00 rand to replace the keypads and we have to pay for it to be fix.This cell phone has two years warranty and i fill it should be replace, as many people has the same problems with the keypad.If not it should be fix as i still have to pay 160.00 rand a month for the contract of this handset until the end of the contract.Sharon Wolf from custumer care told me to return the hanset to Pietermaritzberg vodacare to be sent to advanced repair center for second assesment, but they can not confirm if
the advanced repair center will repair the handset under warranty as this will determinet by the assesment.They claim
liquid damage voids the warranty, but with two cracked buttoms it may have some liquid damage.This handset should be taken out of the market as is to many people with the same problem.Vodacom knows about the problem of this type of handset and i suppose Sony Ericson.I will like to know who is going to repair or replace this handset.I told the costumer care i will never get a contract with them again.For sure i will not get a sony ericson again.
