Last step of firmware update,'Hold down C and connect to USB' Then what? Do you continue holding or do you release after a connections has being made.Thìs might be a stupid question,but when you doing it for the first time its quite daunting and you want to cover all your bases.
yeah it may be on October because traditionally SE puts a very high-end PDA phone on that month in which the Symbian Show is scheduled. we can see more improvements but i think we won't see 5Mp SE P-series. SE loves to make unique things so i think they will add features to the successor in different way as we percieve in the specs of the N95 i.e. 3mp CCD sensor instead of Carl-Zeiss 5mp(we all know CCD kills CMOS in phone image quality as shown by the stand alone S700 against all nokia 1.3mp phones. but i hope the P700 will be released very soon.
anyway, i hope newer series to be born wih a form factor like the Clie UX50 PDA which was the coolest thing i've ever seen on PDAs
Ok now I get you.
Well anyway, explore. I still think it's a gr8 piece, and I would never go back to P910.
Well definately using 3G is a different world than old, slow GPRS. I must say - P990 with 3G or WLAN is almost like a computer.
So - P990 can load any piece of music. I did it with 15MB, 10 minute piece - no problem. In 3G loading took maybe 20 seconds, saving 1 second. Well???
hi guys ahmed again.i m planin 2 setup wifi in my house specialy for 990. one question can i download full 5-6mb songs frm websites to 990?i curently use gprs to surf n its bit xpensive. i love surfin and chatin on 990 while i listen to mp3. guys nokia can never touch the wow effect SE makes its customers feel.i've used k and w series and love SE.
hi guys,i got a smal issue.i bought p990 week back.ihave r9ecoo1....i tried upgrading to new fw.i put my fone in cradle.downloaded the se update file.when i opend that file,it told me to select the latest fone.i said 990i.when i clicked continue it came bak to the first page.am i doin somethin wrong or is this the way 2 upgrade fw.thanx in adv.new 2 p series
can U all tell me how that i can differentiate the firmware version.Is there method for me to check?.
To: Kenny - most likely successor of P990 will be announced this coming October 2007 (exactly 2 yrs when P990 was announced last October 2005). Hopefully, far better than Nokia N95. In fact I'm also using N95 but I think for me the best thing only for N95 is its video recording since this is already 30fps coupled with a 16million color resolution. Camera, despite being 5megapixel, I'm still not very happy because the quality doesn't look like 5megapixel. I can't see the difference between 3.2megapixel of SE K800 and 5megapixel of N95. This is the same case with SE P990 with 2megapixel and Nokia N73 being 3.2megapixel (I swap my N73 to N95). I have compared many photo shots taken from SE P990 and N73 but unfortunately more decent photos from SE P990 2Mpixel than N73 being 3.2Mpixel particularly in the evening (both photo & video recording). That's why even the next successor of P990 is only 3.2megapixel camera, no doubt far better than N95 5Mpixel camera.
hey thanks for the reply. i got my batt changed and i hope it will improve. i will also update its software.. after updating the firmware, will it erase all of my saved files on my phone? or should i back them up?
you have just knew my real name afterall. anyway, P700 is not P990's real successor instead M600. there will be two successors of this M-phone, first will be M610, other one is this one(P700) but we can't tell yet if these two rumored devices is only one because they are extremely similar. P990's successor is to be released months and months more maybe next year or who knows if it will be announced on symbian show at october=D. just expecting the memory of this P990 successor to be 256Mb because RAM is extremely important for all it's functions.
Very good phone after upgrading to the latest firmware. 64 MB Ram is not enough for the phone especially as you will have only 25% of the ram avaliable after starting the phone! The processor is 208 MHz which is acceptable.
The only disadvantage is NO VOIP until now!
Conclusion: good phone if you keep it update.
hahaha funny, many people judged d fone without even exploring it. . . it's better to ask than to complain. . .
Dear i said that i feels this set is slow then 910i
thats not runs more then 4 applications at a time
and the second thing
If u have saved my contact with my pic its not shows
which number from i m calling u
Thanks for information i got the calibration setting

does all new stocks of P990i in the market has the latest and updated firmware, the one that's makes the cell phone no longer crashes and hangs??? when will the new successor of P990i will come out in the market? will i wait or will i buy now the P990i????
i hope they stick to the same p series design its gr8 and if you dont like just remove the flip.
To: Kenneth - Thanks for your post for the forthcoming P700. What I am waiting for is the next P-series after P990. I've been using P990 since early October 2006 and I really wanted to replace it with the next P-series, but not P700 which I think P990 is more sophisticated than P700. How I wish that next P-series (not P700)already a cyber-shot, screen is 3.0", 5Megapixel with xenox flash, 16 million colors, 30fps video recording, 160 internal memory, dual stereo speaker, walkman player feature (remains touchscreen, 416 or 520 MHz speed with higher RAM and ROM)with a built-in video player such as DiVx player or Smartmovie player as a third party software. If it has 3.0" screen,QWERTY keyboard should be slider (like i-mate JASJAM). If P700 is just like SE's successor or P990, definitely I'm not going to replace my P990.
just update the firmware to the latest, everything is faster BUT the alarm is so so so soft, dun think it will wake me up :-)
on tuesday, there will be some announcements from SE, this will include three UIQ models, one walkmans two business and two non-OS ones and P700 is one of them.
I was using P800, P910 over a year.
What I'm saying - P990 with the new firmware is a gr8 phone, very fast. I don't get it - how can't you say who's calling you by number? What do you mean there's no equalizer in P990? I don't really understand you, sorry.
But really - if you explore P990 you'll like it. I'm sure. These phone is good.
P.S. Address book is actually better in P990, at least for me :-)
shakeel doministry is right all you got to do is explore your phone i will give you one hint go to set up wizard and run it the calibaration step is there and your list is long but 80 percent is there so explore and pls dont compare 910 with 990 cus 990 is a 3g phone if you have used the phone from start (if not read the comments)the 910 also got better with upgrades so relax man this is a good phone.
