Im using P990i, really like it, after the last update, the phone is very quick now, but it only support GPRS which is slowwwwww, Want to update to P1, but then, it still lack EDGE.. 3G is not an option in US :(
i have used the WLAN and it works well.
you click on SCAN, it tells you what networks are available and if they are locked, and you connect to one, entering a passphrase if necessary.
you can log into hidden networks by clicking on MORE and then FIND SSID
Can any help me out? I tried configuring email on this, but got some error. Okay i tried to reset to old settings, but i was not able to. i was unable to delete old mails too. i did a master reset, i lost all ringtones. i wanted soap ringtone, can any send that to email@example.com? Also where i can download patches or upgrades for this phone? pls reply me via mail, there are tonns are posts here.
Also forgot to mention, symbian 9.5 is going to be launched next week if this is going to influence any buys. However one should know that both nokia and sony have ported most of these features to their high end phones.
The new OS will allow
Better battery managemnt. - The p1i has great battery life as long as you don't use the 3g too much. However better battery management is always a good thing ;)
Wi-Fi 3G roaming
Push-email and VoIP run over WiFi when in the office and automatically switch to 3G when on the move. - The p1i has something similiar where it will by default try and use wifi before switching to the next preferred internet connection. I'm not sure how this works on nokia phones right now.
real-time networking ensures that VoIP is not interrupted when other IP-based services, such as web browsing or push email, make a connection. - I haven't tested this out, but my different internet apps don't conflict with each other when I do connect online.
The camera features would now include image orientation, image distortion correction auto-focus such as red-eye reduction. - The p1i image editor has these features and the camera has very good auto-focus.
The system will have better connectivity with home computers, via wireless and The new OS upgrade supports multi-standard digital TV
-This is something that I wouldn't mind in any phone, but I've got a decent setup on my phone. I have MyTunesRSS to stream music from itunes, I have an FTP application to use the phone as an ftp device for wireless access. I have a program to see and use my computer desktop from anywhere as long as Im connected to the net. And finally there is a program comming out soon to make the p1i show up as a networked computer as well.
At the questions below me, especially regarding sat-nav:
There are several solutions for satnav. The main ones are wayfinder, wisepilot and tom-tom.These involve you using an external GPS receiver to communicate with the phone over bluetooth. Of course it is not as elegant as the n95s integrated solution, but you can just ditch the receiver somewhere since the connection is wireless.
However these will give a better service than what the n95 comes with.
Depending on where you buy the phone from, you will get wayfinder or tom-tom with it. I think this mostly applies to the european stores though.
Regarding speed, the p1i is fast. Not blazingly fast, but apps take a second to start at the most. Of course if they are running in the background, they will start much quicker. This is another thing that I love about the phone. It has a very large amount of free RAM at all times. I can have many many applications(gone upto 20 since i dont use more) open in the background without a slowdown or memory errors.
I have never experienced this on any phone and I would never dream running so many applications.
As for the 'p3i', it is a rumor. Nothing more. The p1i has just launched and sony would cannabalize their sales by launching anything new, especially since most every user is satisfied with the p1i.
Also, simply just talking about the style of the phone. My friends are very critical when it comes to looks and they all have loved the looks of this phone. This includes my friend who has an n95. WHile the phones can't be directly compared (A business phone vs a media phone), realistically the only real choice is what you plan to use this for. If you want a great business phone at a great value, the p1i is your best bet.
If you want a phone for music and photos, the n95 is marginally better. Its just preference

DagMX...really enjoy all your comments and valuable feedbacks. Perhaps you can assist me on my search if by any chance we can utilise our P1i as a Sat Nav device since you did mentioned in one of your comments that it works better than the N95. Thanks in advance.
P1i users..I encounter there are some enquiries on Sat Nav. Is it available with this unit? Any additional hardware to use it? Can somebody wit a bit of know how assist me? Thanks in advance
Dear Usamah..I had this phone for almost a month already & I consider myself as a heavy user. So far I'm very satisfy with the performance, not even once it hangs or give me problems. The only thing that you need to know is to excess contacts from composing a message is a bit slow; about 2-3 secs. Overall I'm very happy with this piece.
is there any other way to navigate the screen other than using stylus? it is really a big inconvenience considering mobility
hi....plz can any one help me...
as i hav heard dat P series (990,910,900,800) were havin problem....like being slow,feezing or hanging some other in problem in d message section....So is dis SE P1 also encounterin dis problem????
Yeah is true. P1 is M600 succesor. P3 is P990 succesor, and will be announced in November-December. Some specs it should have:
5 MP camera with autofocus and LED flash
VGA screen (maybe BRABIA branded)
VGA video recording
i would like to ask if it is true that P1 is not the replacement phone of P990i? is it true that P990's replacement will be introduced this coming new year? please give me advice since im on the verge of buying P1 but if there is a replacment for P990, i'd rather wait and see what it is. thank you
this phone has best feature as compare to the other phone...only the problem is of camera flash...xenon and auto flash should be given for best results of pic...
i think it is best from nokia n95,e90 and other...
I have used all the SE P series, but this one is an absolute masterpiece
frankly, the best phone I tryed for ages.
everything is included. One issues that they should fixe...the camera's sensor. Even if it's 3.2 millions, you can see that it s lowquality pics....but anyway, the phone is for calling...
really nice music player ;-)
If P1 is not a successor of P990i, SE should announce P990i successor next month at the latest. I really wanted to replace my P990i to its successor. P990i was announced I think mid-2005 and was available only around August or September 2006. It's been 2 years already but still no successor for P990i. I just hope annoucement no later than October this year.
