This review is from: Sony Walkman W518a Black 3G Unlocked GSM Flip Cell Phone
Pros: All the bands to make it a "world" phone. 3G bands for AT&T and possibly T-mobile Sold unlocked Music player operable closed Can be de-branded Nice size and shape
Cons: Likely AT&T branded Uses M2 card, not micro SD S/E cable needed, may not be supplied Cheap cheap plastic Keyboard not the easiest to navigate blind As of 2013 it is rather dated
Other Thoughts: Don't let presence of "Xperia Sony Smartphone" logo fool you. This is not a "smart" phone! The W518a was issued by AT&T in 2009 and 2010. I got a couple in 2010 when they were turning refurbs out cheap in Go Phone store. Probably the biggest knock is the sleazy plastic which is very easy to mar. You can replace if needed but if you ding it on the black face, you are out of luck. Second biggest issue is AT&T branding. It can be de-branded by flashing to a W508. You lose the proprietary mail tool and I think GPS and a mess of AT&T garbage but you gain S/E push mail tool.
