I have my p1i for 2 weeks already the functionsare so great. Ive used n73 and p990i before but for heavy usage, this phone doesnt crash at all even if you open many applications all at once. nice battery life too. and yeah the wi-fi connection is so good. im here in the philippines and i enjoy it much even if 3g signal in here isnt that great. Moreover, ive downloaded the software to watch TV using this fone tohugh ity only captures cable channels, no local channels at all.
if your p1 is set on english-chinese setting,there are soft keys near the back button where as the 1st softkey can switch between chinese and english language for texting.
i had it for 3days now.. Pls help me.. my dictionary is in english-chine mode so i cant use it much. tried to change it by installing the pc suite but tha languange is empty, how can i do it? pls help.. also how can i install new themes?
Akil, I'm sorry, I am not sure what the issue is if it's not IM+ or some similar application. Maybe you could update yr firmware (if you dont have the latest one already), it might fix the problem.
hey ray thanks for the response but im nat using any program that will buzz me and its still happening even though i have the radio/music player running as the only program on the phone i thought that it might have been the screen saver but is wasn't
The Alarm does not Sound when the phone is switched off !!! i need to know if this a bug in my phone only or not can anyone who have please check and feedback me ?
Akil & Silver
I had a similar problem as you guys. Radio would switch off after a few minutes. Realized that I had IM+ set to buzz me when a msg arrives or someone gets online. Well, when that happens, the radio is switched off. Check if you're using IM+ or some other application that's set to buzz you of some event.
SE P5 is likely to be announced early next year, but it won't be available until May or June. Long wait but it is worth it though because it would be almost-perfect phone from Sony Ericsson.
1. No, the P1i doesn't have a call recording feature.
2. Google Maps does not fully support UIQ3, meaning although you can use it, some features of the phone (touchscreen for example) will not work. The new Google Maps without the required GPS module is still in beta so it's not very complete in the very sense of the word. In my opinion though, maybe in a few months, we'll be able to use the full features of Google Maps.
I would like to know the same:
"Hello! I'd like as well to go for P1, but I wanna ask you a question that Does P1 has option of call recording? I mean can we record the conversation(Durring Call)?
Thanks in Advance."
hello every body
would you please tell me is it true that SE
will makes a new phone p5?
thanks in adv
I heard from different people who used it that the P1 is bad in some locations in Egypt as there is no signal in the mobile although other mobiles in the same place with the same network is good.
To recent question posted:
1) To search for wifi available:
I usually turn off the WLAN until I'm ready to use because it uses power. When you are in the WLAN setting, hit on "MORE" then hit on "enable WLAN". Then hit on "SCAN" and it'll show the networks available (if any), enter the WEP key.
2) Transfer music from computer to memory card:
You do not need to install any special programs. When you connect the phone to the USB, make sure to select "file transfer" mode on your phone. Then in your computer go the the removable disk drive for example - f:
The go to wherever you store your MP3's and drag the files over to the music file in the removable disk drive.
I usually use itunes and drag the music files that way. It's pretty fast - 20 songs take like a minute or two.
3) Radio and music player:
I haven't had any issues with the music or radio automatically shutting off on it's own. You always call up sony support.
I recommend running the updates from the sony website or from the CD that comes with the phone. I updated my phone to R9J005 and I noticed applications open and close more smoothly.
Finally I have question:
I installed google maps onto the phone. The most it can do is show an adress that I type in. I can pan around and view in satelite mode. However I cannot zoom in or out using google's directions (3 to zoom in, 1 to zoom out)
Does anyone have any solution to this? Also the touchscreen in disabled during google map use. What should I do?
Hi All Lucky Users of P1!!!
Hello! Could anybody please answer my question regarding P1?
1. Does P1 has option of call recording?
I mean can we record the conversation
2. Can we Find Contacts by Phone number?
I mean that as usual we find a contact
by a Name, but in P1 can we find a contact
by a related phone number?. As P910 has
this supurb option.
Thanks in Advance.
how am i supposed to adjuest its wireless connection to connect to any wifi around me.. and what is this issue about listeneing to not more than 3 or 4 mins to its radio
I have one question. When you transfer music to this phone, does it require a special software or you can just drag and drop songs into your memory card and use it like that
excellent phone + PDA + Camera
bought this phone 2 days back and its ROCKING..
Hello all. Is there a way or an application that can allow me to text the old way (using only the number pad where each number corresponded to 3 or 4 letters)? I was wondering if i can text the old way before i master this new kind of texting. thanks!
Oh my God!!! My ActiveSync Works! Now I'll be prompted by my phone evrytime i got email from our corporate email. Hassle free.
This phone is awesome!!!
The keyboard is pretty interesting. Phonebook works well too!
I had the P1i for a Week and it didn't look smart to me at all specially in the managing contact part and Sync with Outlook that it:
- didn't read category from Outlook so I have to separate more than 500 contact again into groups or folders.
- I don't know what is the benefit of groups or folder that I can't assign them a ring tone, is the guys at SE believe that I will assign 10 tones to over than 500 contact individually.
- One hand text input is a torture, even to make a single call with a selection from +500 contact without grouping is a complete miss.
- The Led light is useless for more than 1.5 meter.
- Lake of HSDPA latest tech.
- No profile setting.
Although it has a good sound, shoots in the day light is good too, battery life is fine.
Hope if anybody has an answer to any of my remarks just shoot in the forum or send me E-Mail.
