when the flip is closed, just go to MORE, then select SHORTCUTS.. there you can unmark display indicator..
Nice features with this phone, only looks is drawback, main competitors are Nokia E70, HTC Tytn, O2 atom... which are all expensive except E70.. this phone seems to be overpriced, but looking at O2 exec, it's more delightful to have, but comparing it with E70 or Tytn,...Hmm hard decision huh? by the way this phone beats all cameras of all PDA phone out there, this is the first and only to have Autofocus lens PDA phone, SE made an innovation regarding that, though...
when the flap is closed there r 4 short cuts message calendar contacts and more.. can these b removd when the flap is closed.as in can i get empty screen just with the wall paper and operator name.. plz help

Has anyone tried to use the P990 as a 3G modem with a Macintosh over either bluetooth or USB?
Can anyone tell me please how to check the firmware version of sony ericcson mobile. as we know in nokia we can check by typing *#0000# but how to check in SE P990.
Correction to my earlier posting.. After using the shortcut Internet button on the right of the phone or tapping on the Web icon, it takes often more than 40s to see something happen..i.e.connecting to Internet..why is this so? Anyone knows?
Well I have used P990i for the past 3 weeks. Pros and cons. Pros is many functions, which actually, honestly, i dunno how many of them I really need or use..Cons..I find connecting to the Internet takes more than 20s....do others have the same problem? Also, cos so many functions sometimes i get lost trying to navigate around..the bottomline is, if you want a relatively easy phone to use with not-so-many features, SE P990i may not be the one for you..Even with a normal Nokia phone I used to be able to use T9 to msg faster..
right i've read all the reviews, bad points and good pints oops i mean points. so the remaining question is should i get the p990i?
please reply with a simple 'yes' or 'no'
no other comments needed. i'll count them and make a decsion based on numbers.
I too like a fellow poster was torn by the decision of the P990 or the N93, the specs are just tremendous on both, but if you want that extra "show off" in your face appeal go with the N93, but the P990 I think is the true way to go. I love this thing, I run through phones like nothing but I think I'll hold on to this one for a while
Good day! can anyone help me with some of my questions. Got my P990i just yesterday.
1. when switching on or off the phone do i really have to select between power on or flight mode? can't it just automatically switched on to power on so i need not have to press anything like the P910i?
2. In messaging, when i marked lets say 4 messages to be deleted, there's no option of DELETE and i wonder why? What i do is open up the message first then delete then open the next one and delete again. Is this really the process of deleting? I doubt.
Thanks for anybody who would help. I previously used P910i and I think the contact features of P910i is far more better than P990 even the calendar. P990 i feel is much slower. On the other hand, at least with P990 there is now the back button and you can open more than 1 application.Of course compared with P910i, P990 is loaded with features but it's just slower :(
i bin using this phone for a weeek now...no problems at all...i think all those pppl who have problems have got a reallly bad batch..SE rocks.
Was having high on this until all these sad stories. I will pass on this SE and goes for ETEN M600 reloaded. No going to views this forum anymore. Very disappointed with SE.
hi! i nd 2 cx out w u guys is there any difference in e showing of image quality on fone screen when after object is focused n after pic taken? ur ans is impt 2 me. tx in advance 4 any prompt reply!
I am very disappointed that Apple Isync does not work with P990i. Some folk have said that the P990 can transfer pictures and contacts via bluetooth to the Mac - but no chance of getting Notes and other such important things across yet. This is on account of UIQ 3.0 and SyncML implementation - which for some reason or the other is "out of Sync" (if you will pardon the phrase). So, we were told to wait.
Today, however, I happened upon a Developer who has tested (so he says) the Preview version of OS 10.5 and he claims that he was crushed to see that P990i is STILL not supported in that pre release version. So, all you mac fans out there, it may be a much longer wait than we first anticipated. Having few options I now look to MS 2005 devices & Nokia. For the 990i MS Exchange Server and Entourage for Mac is the only way right now to sync the phone with the mac.
Does anyone have an opinion on the Nokia N73 - I mean User Experience - not just an opinion.
Does anyone have experience with Mark/Space "The Missing Sync" V.2.5.1 ? This too has been thus far abused, lambasted and torn to shreads by users on other forums - there is almost NO decent review so without knowing if it works or not, I am not going to get myself into a further mess by investing in an MS 2005 device.
Thanks in advance - PLEASE WAKE UP APPLE !!! We need more functional use of Isync - most of the Pda -phones are not useable with the Mac.
I have had the P series since SE came out with them years back. So far none of the phones have made me switch from SE to any other company. Be it Motorola, Nokias, or even Samsung. I did have trouble deciding between the p990i and the N93 by nokia, but like some people mentioned in here that if u dont need the camera then p990 is for u.
I am buying my p990i today. I have been waiting to buy it cuz I have seen that a lot of people have issues with the OS. My only concern is that here in Canada no1 ever buys such expensive phones. People here are going crazy about the V3 Razr (old ones). We are so behind in technology that it is not even funny. I wanted to know that if the software issues are fixable? I know I can always upgrade to a newer software version but it will be tough to find someone who can upgrade. Can someone please list some major issues wiht this phone so I can be aware of them and not freak out. Hopefully, my fones gonna work fine. Thanks again for readin this.
