Never overcharge your battery, thats one of the reason why it would get destroyed. Overcharging doesnt make your battery store a lot of energy, on the contrary, it would deteriorate the capacity of the battery to retain energy.
Would somebody please tell me what`s the latest firmware for this phone.I bought one yesterday but could not find contacts.It`s empty.Firmwarw in it ends with 004 .Any help please. Thank you very much.
bhai hard format your p1i.
i am on the same firmware and my Mobile is giving the battery bakup of almost 2 days after huge usage of SMS. And always check taskmanager for hidden applications running, that drains the battery very fast.
It happens sometimes with my p1i and lovely p990i, that abnormally the battery drains completely in an hour...
the best step is remove battery and keep it for 15 minutes, and then put for charge...everything will be to normal.
SE rules...Use Nokia, and I am sure you will be fedup, same way I was 4 yrs back.

I have drained my battery completely twice in the last week and over charged it for 4hrs. But improvement is not significant. I can feel the difference in battery performance before and after firmware update. Thats the reason why i am blaming firmware for poor battery performance. SE should do something in this regard before customers move to some other phones like Nokia E71 etc. I liked sony ericsson p1i for its amazing battery backup and multitasking capabilities. But new firmware R9K009 has disappointed me a lot in two issues such as battery and predictive text which are behaving abnormally. Hope SE is listening to us. P1i is my alltime favourite and better than Nokia in performance n multitasking.
heres a tip,if ur bat drains faster..set the brightnes either 50-60% off wifi off gprs and bluetooth if not in use..if your battery is new or sumthin..try to overcharge it for like 30mins-1hr. but it wont really overcharge because its Li-polymer not like Li-ion on nokia it does overcharge..then lets me hear whats the result..i did that on my phone i was wonderin also coz my phone was new and battery..and was askin why it was drainin fast with a new FW on,then thats what i found out ..the battery still needs to adjust if its stil new..and my batt lasted long for like 2-3 days when i used those steps..
can anyone please tell me if this phone can use msn application on pay as you 02 network in the uk?
yes..it drains faster..i was wonderin if there would be a new FW upgrade..you cant go back to the old FW..

i do have same battery backup problem now after updating the phone's firmware from R9J009 to R9K009. within an hour of gprs usage battery getting drained to 90%. before updating the firmware, 1hr of gprs usage used to consume about 5% or even less battery and also charging time was about 100min for 100% charging from 0% and now it is taking more than 120 minute.
why is it? anyone can answer to my querry?

digitalboy, 19 Jul 2008Is the camera of the P1i is cyber shot or not ?it is not a cybershot phone. the camera is just average with lots of noise in low light condition
Anonymous, 19 Jul 2008i got my p1 with wayfinder bluetooth GPS receiver in the package

Mesk, 17 Jul 2008And about GPS? Iphone have it...

Thanksi got my p1 with wayfinder bluetooth GPS receiver in the package

yes its sound is alike with w960, i have a problem with my battery..it last for almost a day..its made in china but its FW is in indonesia..i have latest FW installed and i turn off wifi blutetooth and gprs..
its fantastic phone , very stable, it is a unique combination of business with fun .
great phone .... it is value for money.
sound quality is greta + 3.2 mp camera adds more fun to it.
This is the greatest phone I have ever had - and I usually only get Sony Ericsons - they are the best. Google Maps can also be downloaded on this one and then you don't even need the GPS that comes with it - it's a great phone. The quality of the sound is very clear, and photo's taken with it - also good - except if you zoom in quite a lot. Just remember to buy a screen protector before your screen get's totally scribbled over. The stylist can get some work on - a bit flimsy - but that's the only problem I can find in the last 5months I had it.
how about the sound? ,is that like the Wseries or not? ,how is the quality of headset?
i personally have an n95 before but was frustrated because of the battery life and its qualiy built..and i was bored..i mean i wan to learn sumthin new..and this is where my p1i came in,and sold my n95 due to the fact that i was satisfied with my p1i beside me..yes i lost a digi cam phone,but 3.2 mp of the p1i is almost nearly the same with p1i,ive lost the tv out and the 3.5m jack..but then in p1i i gain the touchscreen,usb charging(which is very handy coz i usually play online game everytime) but then its after 3 days that it will be lowbat by that time i charge it,heheh..well im not too lazy to carry an adaptor so i stil have 3.5m jack hahah..its not bulky,has a rare design,has good quality and sounds, and of course the big battery with long life..ii had a small scrath when i put my phone in my pocket where there were some coins..damit..i guess p1i has a senstive skin..hahah..overall,its one of the best..with a reasonable price..a work of art,cant wait for its next successor though..hehehe
