How CAN you complain about UIQ3? Yeah, it's dead? And? Does this suddenly make the phone bad or something. Obviously most haters hadn't used this phone for more than 6 months. UIQ3 was and STILL is the best Mobile OS. S60 or Win. Mobile aren't touch screen optimized. UIQ is as it's newer. You DON'T have to 'hack' this phone. All is there for you. If you do wish to mod/hack your P1i, it would be a breeze with instructions. :P The device itself is sturdy and feels nice in your hand. It fell once for me, kinda dented the metallic edge but nothing more. This device is now cheaper than originally, and for it's cost you get many things. You CAN navigate the screen with your finger. Just adapt to it and all is fine and easy. The QW-ER-TY is a nice design on SE's behalf. A total space saver, and super quick text typing. Don't like keyboard? Use the on-screen keyboard. The problem of P990's slowness is now gone with the P1i and it's quick and stable. The battery lasts a week, if not used TOO heavily. The guy with installation problems is bluffing, all UIQ3/Java apps work. Overall, this device packs basically all the features of a modern day smartphone in to one, neat and relatively cheap package, along with a very nice OS that's easy to adapt to. There is no way that you can compare P1I to Omnia, HTC and top of the range phones as this phone was out for quite sometime now. It's not compareable, and having said that, it's better than most modern day smartphones.
adam baloyi (sa plk), 31 Mar 2009i have been using my P1i for a year. i just want to know if i change the cover to black. it lo... moretry Gmask to change the color or looks of the casing to whatever color or picture you like (its not the same with Gdesk, dont be confused).

Been used this phone for the past 2 month,This is the best phone..the camera is great.With stereo speaker provides good sounds.No common virus are known to infected this phone.What else u aspect from a phone can fly or walk by it self???
why would user concern when uiq is no more?i mean i've bought the phone without knowing that the OS has been discontinued though it already that long.i know it's a regret for me.but still the phone has got everything.camera,wifi,qwerty,bluetooth & even touchscreen.i was thinking what user expect more for small gadgets like any pda or phones that comes with prefect score.i would prefer a laptop if i wanted a better storage,speed sound and wifi.thus can use VOIP.no offense for phone lovers.i'm just sad that p1 has been put with bad reputation because of its OS.for me p1 is A Okay ;)
can someone find me x-plore that works on the P1i cuz I wanna install whole new icons and stuff and it seems that that is the only way to do that.Any helpfull tips would be preciated....
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970it depends on your needs
there is not much difference between P1i and G700 except for the half-qwerty keyboard of P1i, better try it out first then decide. Its a smart phone so you can also install additional softwares on it.
if your not that techie and you are looking for a walkman phone, you may want to go for those slim walkman phone instead.
If you know how to follow mod instructions, you can however install walkman V3 on P1i or G700. One concern however for UIQ3 phones is that it is discontinued. Others usually say its a dead OS now, but I for one, is not that worried, the last firmware is very stable and is currently loving GDESK, its like having different UI of every phone on your UIQ3. case in point:
lol this phone is really cool. I got so impressed with the "Track ID" thing lol. Only, it is kind'a aged now..
I am using past 1year, problem is touch screen.
i am presing the SETUPWIZARD THEN IT COMES THE PROBLEM. PLZ GIVE ME SOLUTION as soon as posible.
i recently got this phone as a gift..its a gud phone no doubt but its outdated...it luks like a cheap chinese copy...but still i will be using it fr few more onths n then go for LG 900 arena..thats a real treat fr phone lovers... :)
This phone is OLD!!! Has a DEAD OS and is UGLY
New phones are much better. Try newer models from SE, Nokia & Samsung. You'll see the difference
I'm getting rid of my unit after 3 months use. I don't know why i got it in the 1st place
- The interface is not finger optimized, you need a stylus to do everything - annoying
- Every feature has to be HACKED in order be of some useful purpose, and this can ruin the phone
- You have to waste hours trying to hack the thing, when we actually pay SE for a complete fully featured unit
- The interface is very slow - It takes ages to go from one screen to another
- Phone starts freezing frequently after some time use
- You have to periodically format/re-flash the phone because gets very buggy after some time
- It has so many bugs but will never get updated - UIQ is dead
- The touchscreen is ancient, unlike new touchscreen phones you have to press a lot
- The QW-ER-TY keyboard is annoying and difficult to use
- Old, rickety, ugly design
Overall, very old phone that deserves the trashcan
It's all over very good phone,,Camera 3.2is best,Music ,,mega bass is their, Qwerty K.b is their, Expandable upto 4gb is their,,,,U Can say its complete package,,Da best phone,, M using since last 6months,,,,All over,,,Da Best,,
Daniel, 25 Mar 2009I had this phone for almost an year now... And it's really not what I expected... Not one appl... moredude there seems to be problem with your handset. get your software updated and as far as wifi is concerned i use it almost like everyday and works fine and for the applications which i have many go to the original site of SE i.e. www.P1-Choice.com
I had this phone for almost an year now... And it's really not what I expected... Not one application that I install work... I go for the sites that have UIQ 3.0 tested programs and It doesnt work... The only things it seems to work is gmail and google maps... but very poorly, because almost every time I use google maps, it freezes...
And when I use wi-fi with the Opera Browser, it almost everytimes, after a while, it boots... or freezes... I think he has a very good potencial, but it can't seem to meet them...
yura, 24 Mar 2009i've been using this phone for more than 4months now. i wanted to know what different is p1 wi... morehave a p1i,was on o2, now using voda payg and need settings for wifi internet conections,also info on software upgrades would be greatly appreciated,anyone able to help,i am useless at this sort of thing!!!!
i have one for the past year and a half and this phone is surely something to write praises about. but firstly the problem that surrounds this phone is its jog dial(got repaired twice), that is the only thing that has given me problems and yes the speaker was replaced once. talkin about rest the battery still gives impressive times after such long time and to tell you ive used it for more than 2000 hrs (total call time. the screen and camera are good and with rest everything at its best
