User from India,I was facing an issue with bluetooth and the camera key. So i submitted the handset for repair to one of the Sony ericssion service centre. Its been 2 months now that i have not recieved the handset back. Service centre had given the device back to me saying that it was repaired but hen i was not able to make any calls from the phone. I have submitted the handset for repair again and still waiting for it to be repaired and delivered back to me. I had this phone from a years time and no issue till the day my bluetooth stopped working. In the mean while I have used E71 and E66.But trust me on this P1i rocks for its features and weight.
I have this phone for more than one year now.
what i like about it is:
good battery life
querty (takes time to get use to it)
camera is good at good light conditions
it is bulit to last (believe me, i droped it numerous times, once even forget it on the roof of my car and droped it while turning)
still it works (jog dial sometames not working while scroling up)
third party gps works very good on P1.
thing that i do not like is:
wierd playlist creation,
anyway it is very good phone for the price it cost...
A few people, I think, have had some kernel error while trying to run some applications. I used to get KERN-EXEC 3 when trying to run Fring a while back.
But earlier this week, I flashed my P1 and restored a recent backup. And started getting KERN-EXEC 0 when trying to run IM+.
After a number of flash updates and data restoration, when I was getting pretty p**sed off, I thought I'll try installing the 3rd party applications afresh, instead of restoring them from the backup (and restore only my contacts). And guess what, it worked. So that's the key. Keep your apps installable files safe (either on PC or on yr M2 card) and if you flash yr phone and start getting KERN-EXEC errors, try doing fresh installations.
Just thought I'll share this with y'all. Hope it helps anyone facing a similar problem.

Ivan, 25 Nov 2008Hi, for all those who are planning to purchase this phone:
i have use this phone intensively ... moreI would like to add some additional information on Ivan's message.
I have used Iphone. And part of being very superb in its touch interface, I was also disappointed with features which it provides. Such as no bluetooth transfer, no A2DP. No memory card, no flash, poor signals... YES poor signals. I have used Iphone here in Pakistan of my brothers, and despite of strong network here, most of the times Iphone never had coverage. And moreover my P1i showed full signals or 1-2 less bars. Forward messaging absent, MMS, Office viewer, touch screen input. In 1-2 days I will make an video showing Iphone theme used with help of Gdesk, I have similar to Iphone interface. Secondly that UIQ apps are more available than Iphone. I hate Itunes because of its heavy interface.
There are lot and lots of reasons for not buying Iphone, and only one strong reason for buying, its TOUCH... So I give Iphone 4/10 and p1i 8/10
Rest is to you to choose.
i have sonyericsson P1i, its possible to save conversations? (normally all other sonyericsson models have this function) if anyone know how to use record function while calling please let me know on "firstname.lastname@example.org"
Hi, for all those who are planning to purchase this phone:
i have use this phone intensively for a year and this is what i feel.
Bearing in mind that this is a relatively 'old' phone (compared to omnia,htc pro, storm etc), the phone is very stylish and not bulk and ugly like N-series.
Weird keyboard but you quickly get use to it after a while. I wont recommend it to people with huge fingers or to ladies with long nails. i really think the phone would be better with directional keys.
descent touchscreen but of course, no match to the iphone. Relatively slow response sometimes. Possible but difficult to use the touchscreen with your fingers only. Some buttons need the stylus. So it is very frustrating to switch between fingers and stylus. You will end up using the stylus evrytime , mainly when using the office applications.
the scroller on the side in theory allow you to use the phone with one hand, but this is not the case, unless on the basic functions. you need your finger/stylus to use the phone fully.
I really like the interface and the fact that it allows you to have like 'two menus'. you can also press on any icon on the stand by menu and you go directly to the funtion. e.g if you want to know your battry level, just press on the battery icon in the stand by menu. same for clock, calendar etc. 9you do need the stylus if you have big fingers)
Descent camera as you would expect from a 3.15 MP with flash. the only downside is it takes a few frustrating seconds (4-5 sec)for the camera to start.
Also processing the picture ( autofocusing etc) takes ages before you can view your picture. the image quality do lack a bit of colour. (P1i user tell me what you think on this ).
Video recording is a bit disappointing.
Yes the phone do hang sometimes but not like 4 times day ( well for me). there is a delay in opening/closing applications but not a severe one. opening/closing msg can take some frustrating 1-2 sec.
in general all features/applications are ok. battery is ok. wifi connectivity is fine.
businees side of the phone is brilliant (but you need the stylus :-)).
hope this help
Adnan, 25 Nov 2008I have done Master resent of my P1i. All the ring tones and Demo which come by default has bee... moreI also got the same problem before. Update your phone software using the one downloadable at the SE website. This will give all the lost audio files. But, you need to back up your phone first, since the old software will be replaced by a new one. This is what I've done on my phone. Upgrading to a new software. If you are on new software already. I suggest you call SE Cust Care.
I have had my P1 for 3 months now and it is very good except in 1 respect whenever i am using the Quick-office and highlight a sentence without pressing edit the Phone hangs, i have to take out the battery and restart it before it is useful again. My reckoning is that it is because of the low processor power, otherwise the phone is simply awesome...... my wish is Sony Ericsson can do an update which can sort out this mess, for now the phone has a 74% mark
I have done Master resent of my P1i. All the ring tones and Demo which come by default has been deleted. Can some one pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase upload or send me by email (email@example.com) the default ringtones and Demo clip? I will be very very grateful. Look forward to hear from you soon!!!!
@_@, 24 Nov 2008WILL P1 GET HANG?????? Cause i saw my friend use his P1 always get hang ............ so izzit ... moreI did faced very frequent "hanging" problems until SE replaced my phone's motherboard after second sent-in. And ever since no hanging issue.
Anonymous is a hater of SE. He can be found on most SE forums especially Xperia (X1). try not to reply his dissing of SE. Only users should be allowed to comment negatively or positively. i use the P1i and it is amazingly stable and fast. i love SE phone because at a time when other phone companies only put special features on their expensive models, SE gave us everything in almost all model they brought out.
i have respect for a company that can do that and still sell their phones at prices that average people can have access to them. SE haters can go eat fried mango leaves or look for the nearest bridge to take a flying leap off of, take your pick. SE rocks the mostest!!!!
