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.
I use WLAN frequently.
To set up, just click the top-left icon, into connections, into Wireless LAN, Scan, Enter Key, and Connect.
I find its web-browsing via WLAN faster than O2 XDA Exec.
Only that my laptop can catch signals farther away from the router than this can do. Weird. But perhaps my laptop is several times bigger lol.
I've had a P1i for 20 days, and not had a problem yet. Yeah the keypad is a bit awkward, but I prefer using the handwriting recognition (that takes a bit of getting used-to). I tried its sound quality with Stereophones, and its as good as my previous W800i, only more versatile equaliser selections.
It's all good, except when it froze on me, when I tried closing down the O2 GPRS connection. For some reason that doesn't happen as neatly as it should. Restarting solved the problem, anyway.
Good all-round phone.
purchased the phone, a bit slow, i could not find any profiles options. where would i get some good business applications?
when I bought this phone was a real surprise because I found inside the box a GPS receiver and "wayfinder" application.
I'm not 100% happy because wayfainder not allow to download and save any map. You must have permanent conectivity with wayfinder server for maps.
Does anyone know if it is possible to upgrade this phone to HSDPA with any fixes?
I have just recently learned that HSDPA is not a hardware! It is merely a piece of software that accelerates data transfer. I know a windows version exists in HTC and PALM devices.
This should mean that there must be a Symbian equivalent too out there somewhere!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I used the P1i at the weekend and I wasn't that impressed.It didn't seem any quicker than my P990i.It's just an M600i with a 3.2 Megapixel camera on the back and a VGA camera on the front for video calling.OK,so they have increased the memory which it desperately needed because UIQ 3 is a very hungry operating system.
Don't be fooled by Sony Ericsson when they say that the P1i is the replacement for the P990i because it's not.They will launch the P990i replacement in the New Year.
after seeing this phone in the store window i just can't help it but want it, but however i wish to know how this phone compare with the iPhone and the Nokia N95. these 3 phones are the best i have seen so far but i want to know how they compare. it would be nice if gsmarena can make a comparasion review of the 3 phones. please if anyone can help please write your opinion, thank you in advance
Hi All, How does the P1 compare to the W950i ? I have a 950 but the contacts memory is locked not dynamic, hence with nearly 5K contacts to sync it's v v slow + will not sync with PC unless the phone memory is re formatted - painful.
Will the P1 overcome these problems ?

i hav been usin this phone for the last 2 weeks, its an amazin phine wit all the features u would like to hav in a cell phone...i hav been searchin for a phone for the last monyh and my search ended wit the P1i...the other option was N95...but...the touchscreen took me to P1i...go for it guys...
i would recommend Sony any time....Sony Ericsson Patriot..it cost Rs 23500..in Bannglore
if you are looking for feature rich phone then please don't spend money on phones like N95, n93 etc ... go for p1i it is better phone than any other phone available ... it covers all the drawbacks of p990i ... gives greater power ... nokia Nseries phones don't have document editors so they cannot be business phones .. yes they can be multimedia phones but again p1i can compete with them in this arena as well ..
this phone rocks ... great quality .. it has got all dam features ( expcept for edge and gps ) ... I don't need them either ... such a great phone for such a less price ... it is a good business phone aswell .. wifi is great .. sound quality is also good .. but yes ... they could have packaged better headset ... overall .. it is a great phone .. cost's 23K ( with tax ) ...
can anyone plz help me ........
would like to know that does P1 has option to change wallpapers , themes , screensavers.
To the questions below:
The P1i is much better than the p990 (havign used both). Not only is the form factor much better, the keypad is more comfortable for me and since there is so much RAM, you can have a ton more applications running than any other phone. I haven't found a better phone for multitasking. even with the camera, web browser, music player etc... running in the background, I noticed no slowdowns and the phone has never asked me to close an application.
The screen is very readable. Using it at 66% brightness, its readable under a bright indian sun.
You can use alphanumeric entries and there is a setting to see which number is calling.
I haven't had the word editor close yet, mainly due to the larger RAM so don't expect the phone to quit on you like the p990.
Haven't used the headphones, but the loudspeaker music quality is great. Bass buzzes a little, but its comparable to the n95(though not as loud)
Worst thing about the p1i is the lack of a remote control application. I got everything else(I can ontrol my pc from anywhere which is fun)
Between the P1i and the blackberry cruve, the p1i has more features easily. And the keypad is just as good(comparing to both my dads suretype blackberry and my moms qwerty blackberry)
Its a tie IMO between the p1i and e90. P1i is nicer looking, and has a better, ore accesible feature set. The e90 has a bigger(internal) screen and qwerty keypad.
The phone doesn't have a 3.5 jack but it supports a2dp.
Your message send settings are probably set incorrectly. Go to your service provider and check it out.
It has a very bright dual-led flash. very high quality
the p1c doesn't have wifi and english support whereas the p1i has english support and wifi
Regarding the wifi, the difference of using 802.11b and 802.11g is negligible on a phone. I have confirmed this with developers. Nokia supports the extra wifi, but they don't have any phone that will actually take advantage of the extra bandwidth.
Wifi reception is very good, however you should dieally use it with a linksys or netgear(or other good-name routers) because the p1i is having compatibility issues with my router. But on other routers it works wonderuflly. Webpages load quickly.
For voip, there are a lot of possibilities, though I myself use fring.
You can change the font size in quickoffice. The pdf reader works well and while I haven't tried out the email yet, I have confirmation that it works very well.
I'd recomend this phone as a business/high end luxury phone.
to the guy who ask3ed if messenger is compatible: You can install fring(free) or buy IM+(you can get this free with the includedd software points)
As for the guys who keeps saying the n95 is better. The n95 is a different idea alogether. Its a multimedia phone and all it has is a better camera aand gps. You can get a better gps add-on for the p1i though.
The p1i has a better form factor, has a better keypad and a touchscreen. Plus UIQ is a better platform IMO. More stable.
