i think the se people made a mistake by giving us 15 mb ram they missed the trick here lets hope they solve it in their next firmware updates its like they built a concorde but forgot the sonic boom which led to its downfall.
Out of the box the charger didn't work. It was exchanged. Over the next few days I discovered the following
1. The camera when used indoors would not focus correctly
2. Sometimes on voice calls the sound would be so bad that I would have to dial off and redial
3. Sometimes the phone would freeze.
4. Battery life was just over 1 day, normal use.
5. Backup didn't work properly. I kept getting errors
The phone is currently in for repairs. I'm not sure if my next phone will be a Sony Ericsson.
yea like my P9910i (now i think) . .
i haven't charged my phone for almost 2 days and still my phone's up , upto next day lol :P
andile, it would last longer if you could bring down the brightness to 15%
hopefully this will be my mom's christmas present for me lol ;O)
this phone is sooooooo cooooooool :O)) lol
almost all features are in this gadget.
only the look of this phone iss the disadvantage ... it's really bulky lol but the rest it's aight and high quality features :-)
the price is worth buying tho because it's almost fully-featured.
HI,I would like to know is P 990 worth buying ? Is the software ok? firmware R 9 ok? Pls advice should i buy it or no?
HI,I would like to know is P 990 worth buying ? Is the software ok? firmware R 7 ok? Pls advice .
The next P-series is P1000i with the following features:
5Mega pixels camera
Xenon flash, auto focus
30fps video recording
4GB internal memory
2.8" TFT screen
To achieve better battery life, reduce your backlight to 70% or 65%. Go to Tools, then Control Panel, then Device, then Backlight, then tap Brightness. After tapping the Brightness, you will see below the screen the percent of brightness of your unit. Just tap the percentage (%) and it will give you the option to reduce the brightness (you can use the jog dial to increase and reduce the brightness).
I seem to be having problems connecting my P990 to my orange livebox wireless internet at home. I have a 26 character WEP but when i enter it into the phone it seems to take only 15 characters. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks!
02 keep trying to push the 990i on to me so that I will not cancel my contract. It's a great deal on offer but i'm dubious as everyone seems to be having big software probs with this fone. Honest opinions please!
i think we should wait for another week or so for the R9 firmware for p990 to be updated in the update service of sony ericsson web site or if we can confirm that it is already out & still not updating, then i think we should freshly install the update service again and try.
Also i dont think there will be any improvement in the sound quality with the new R9 firmware 'cause SE guys will atleast have to eliminate these hanging & restarting problems before they concentrate on the music quality any way lets check out buddy.
I downloaded loads of cool stuff for my p990i from http://www.fonetech.albaweb.net
you have to sign up for it but its all free...
The phone itself is the best phone ive ever had!
hi there, got this phone for around 2 weeks now, everything works fine except for the battery which obviously doesnt last as long as previous models. lasts only around 2 hours ++ for continuous talking from full charge. my firmware for phone is CXC162037 R7A001, is this the latest firmware??
by the way, how do i turn on the speaker phone while on a call, apart from tapping on the speakerphone button on screen when the call is connected...anyway to do it with a click of any button?? thanks!
My battery only lasts just over 48 hours, how can I achieve maximum battery? I have adjusted the brightness of the display as well as keep the keys locked at all time. I also went Tools,control panel,device but there was no power saving mode option
