Wel I just got my P1i a week ago and put it thru a strenuous test with all apps open as i could and had no problems with it this also sank the last bit of nokia in my familly after N95 after 2 months old just crashed and after a reboot failed to reboot . That is one thing nokia must stil learn is to make a stable os before they bring out a phone . Oh and yes a am writing this all on my P1i .
When I compared p1i with nokia I must say Se P1i feels solid and not like over priced piece of flimsy plastic with a screen with a brand name on it , Se P1i is the Porshé of the smartphones and in its own class at the top all alone. Excellent Se as we all came to know over the years that Se leads and the rest follows..
I just compare 3 phones with u all ,
N95,n82 and p1i
These 3 phones are same to each other
Symbian os, battery life, screen,music, internet, and so on,
These comparison i made to person use phone in daily life,
Only the difference is camera and touch screen.
I just suggest u the best phone is p1i
JV, 15 Jul 2008hi,

harry, 17 Jul 2008hi pradhan
me too had SE p1i but i dont know how to install walkman in it . can u please help me To harry,
Hey, its simple, just go for google search and type 'install walkman 3 for p1i' and search and follow the procedure its too simple.
why cost so much on iphone with a few differences with p1i...??? if you are money wise, youl buy p1i and buy that extra money of psp! hahaha..instead of buying one phone..hehe
can someone help me with the wifi..when i already connect and go surfin on the web its says error, do i still need a wap settigS?
i agree with everything Welshsteve have said regarding the advantage of P1i over iPhone.
But I would just like to point out that the touch interface of iPhone is really good, it is loaded with animations and very user friendly. This is the advantage of iphone over P1i.
too bad that it fails in the other phone functions, theres even NO third party applications available for iPhone! so whatever application you have when you buy the iphone, you are stuck with it for good!

rimzz, 17 Jul 2008hey @89 .. can you actually explain as to how you can delete your call lists/logsyou should really learn to explore your P1i
to delete calls:
press calls, when the list of calls are displayed, switch to extend mode by pressing "more" then choose the "extended mode".
After that, you can now delete any call list by pressing back or clicking "more" then "edit" then delete by date or to delete all entries
Satish, 13 Jul 2008Hi , this is satish ... i also wanted to buy this phone , because of its awaysome features , a... moreHi Satish!
"iPhone or Pi?"
My answer, Pi just about.
MUCH better Camera with video record
Bluetooth AD2P (for stereo bluetooth head set)
File sharing via bluetooth
Normal text support (forwarding texts, MMS both NOT on iPhone)
Better battery life
Physical buttons that despite people complaining about the rolling factor (one key for both Q and W etc) I found it very easy to type with. Touch screen is not as good as iphone (no multi touch) but very good and very usable!
Good media player with Radio with (with RDS I assume!?)
But the iPhone has an edge with the UI and iPod features. iPhone now has HSDPA which is a lot faster than P1 UMTS. But if you are talking about mobile formatted webpages, it's no biggy! To take advantage of HSDPA you have to have an unlimited Data plan as it will cost you a lot if not. iphone's phone functions are not as good as P1, but the media side is not really better, just more user friendly. I mean, you can do the same things but just slightly less conveniently.
Hope I helped.
Mr_Pinto, 14 Jul 2008P1i is a good phone with da most feature that I needed. The battery life is awnsome. I would ... morehello,
You asked about IM programs for the PIi? I am assuming you mean MSN/Yahoo/Googletalk/ICq etc?
There's few around but the one I use as a complete solution to IM on a mobile is Morange. It's a Java program so it will be small in size and will run great on a PI, it's does all IM protocols and is FREE!
But more than that, it's does VOIP calls/texts (fees apply) push email, RSS feeds, Chat Rooms, Remote desktop and remote file storage. Pretty impressive for a free app eh?
89, 14 Jul 2008to saji, if u want to delet the recent calls u must switch the recent calls menu to compact modehey @89 .. can you actually explain as to how you can delete your call lists/logs
I just love using my P1i. I have been reviewing its features in the website and I was impressed. But the moment I bought it, I automatically fell in love with it! It is a "smart" smartphone.
Hi JV... I had almost 7 days with my New P1, the mobile is awesome, everyday I discover new features on the mobile.... The voice Quality is much better than my old phone SE W810 because the earpiece is bigger than the w810.... The Only thing that i miss from my old phone are the Walkman Keys to manage the song that im listening without tap the screen.... Furthermore, you can use the phone as a Ad Hoc with bluetooth devices, its means that if you are connected to the WiFi Network you may be able to connect another phone to the internet via your P1 because the p1 works as a router....
One thing i dont like about P1 is that if the Wi Fi Signal is not excelent, you may have Connections problems trying to navigate on the web.
And yes, the P1 have T9 or predictive text and i think that the keypad is a good tool to edit your Messages in a short time....
Trust me, the P1 is one of the best phones of Sony Ericsson, I dont Regret of buy a p1
Has all major the bugs with this phone been corrected like the random restarts and crashing.
Salu From Kannur, Ke, 15 Jul 2008Pls Tell me.. How Can any call be Recorded by My SE P1i Pls Send me Msg my email: salukannur@g... moreyou can use a software for that. u have to install it on your P1i
danding, 16 Jul 2008i think you can't compare n81 with p1i coz they aren't the same. n81 is an all around phone, t... moreokay..thanx danding.
i know they are different, just wanna know, does P1 have sound quality as good as any music phones. i need this cell for my jobs. but i also need a cell phone that can satisfy my music hobby..complicated isnt it..? haha...
Hmmm...N series' errors is the one that make me turn to SE..hehe...
i think you can't compare n81 with p1i coz they aren't the same. n81 is an all around phone, the most common features of a phone. p1i is a smartphone. it is intended for businessman on the move. in terms of specs p1i has more specs. read on the specifications.
better check both units personally and choose what suites your taste. i recommend p1i coz its a lot better. nokia???? i don;t know. better buy the china version. its better than the original hehehehe.
