Oops, sorry. Upgrading firmware by your own, I mean. Firmware upgrades in the Flips has to be done through SE Service Centers.
For those whose CDAs still in G007 firmware and without upgrade to J005, stick with G007. H004 is terribly slow. It takes 10-15 seconds to look up contacts when creating sms. I had my unit replaced because I had mine upgraded to H004 at a service center. Unfortunately, upgrading firmware in my country will terminate my warranty.
A picture with 320 x 240 resolution or lower will do. anything above that & the picture becomes blurry becoz the phone has to downsample it.
As for the phone firmware, as of the moment i think only the world generic firmware has the available update. Either you have to wait for the available update for the US firmware version OR change your CDA version to World Generic 1. Keep in mind though that changing your CDA also means that you are re-flashing your phone & CAN be harmful. Doing it wrong will make your phone into a rather great looking paperweight. Try reading about it in the numerous other forums in the net or try google about it.
guys how do i update my firmware to the new world generic 1? cos whenever i update my fone i always get the oldest firmware the us version... wat language shud i choose to get the world generic version? tnx in advance... ^_^
Currently all my Contact Pictures' width & lenght in Microsoft Outlook are about 2.5cm * 4 cm respectively and their resolution are between 180 dpi to 300 dpi.
Pictures' size are also all under 100 kb.
After synching the mobile with my PC, when I get a call and the contact's picture appears on mobile screen, it looks blurred and seems very low quality.
What is the best picture diameter, size and resolution for Contact Picture to get a good (or at least normal !) result on the SE P1i screen?
Thanks in advance for your time and help.
jacolomania like you said i just called mr.roger he gave me some tips about my p1,and tomorow hes gonna make the latest firmware and ill beat you all
As of the moment, there is no flash available for this phone. But you can watch youtube videos on this site: www.m.youtube.com
Its youtube for mobile phones.
How can I watch videos on youtube on this! I need a flash player but cant find any for its software ( symbian os 60 uiq ) please help me.
plz tell me whether i can use the opera mini 3.0 on this p1i or not ............????//
let me know on
i will b thank ful
I just bought the phone yesterday and its a beauty.. the sound quality is quite good and the phone has two days of learning time I guess.. The camera is a lil tricky to begin with..
But all of all... its the best phone to buy if you want to mix Business with Pleasure...
How well does this work U.S. At&t carrier? Being that it runs on UMTS / GSM 900 / GSM 1800 / GSM 1900.
hi , can anyone look for me if the p1i can play rmvb(real audio/video vbr
sorry guys that i ask to much
I thank P1i for posting all their comments..
With all the drawbacks i have read, I rather defer for some time the plan to buy this unit, or possibly, not to buy it at all.
And that's not the only problem... They also know about the needed flash player for UIQ but the programmers at sony ericsson still aren't listening to the P1 users. I really hope they get their acts together coz this is one great phone & if they could solve these problems, this phone would be even greater.
hey guys bad news i went to sony ericsson and ask them about the green tint with the pics and they said they recgonized the prob but they dun have any solutions =/...
The P1i is stable. If your phone isn't stable, then you need to return it to where you bought it & have it replaced (if you still have a warranty)
The P1i is region coded depending on the CDA version. The most stable versions are the phones with WORLD GENERIC FIRMWARE. I have World Generic 1 firmware in my phone & i NEVER had any problems with it.
I recently did an update of the phone thru the SE Update Service. My firmware is now:
Here are some of the things that i noticed after the upgrade:
1. The phone has around 75mb at start-up
2. Menus are actually faster to open & transitions are actually faster. I switched the transitions ON coz unlike before they are actually quite appealing now, you will actually see the difference. There is really a DRASTIC INCREASE of speed.
3. The camera layout has been changed & the camera automatically adjusts the level of exposure during low light conditions.
4. When using dark themes, handwriting now have white borders to differentiate your words from the background.
5. Has a new Opera browser version. But i use the Opera Mini coz its actually better.
6. File Manager is much much, much faster than before.
7. The Green tint with the pictures taken by the camera is still there. There is still NO search function in contacts.
