thanks in advance!
Yes, you can use Yahoo Messenger with P1. There are a few different ways. First, you can use the web browser itself. This is alright if you wanna use Messenger occasionally.
If you are a heavy user, two options - first is FRING. It's a free software that lets you chat on Y!, can give you notifications of receiving a msg, and you can also send/receive files.
The 2nd option is IM+. This is not a free software, but is a nice one too (Trial is free). You can send files using this, but not recieve any. That's a downside. But one thing it allows u to do is change your online status - Available, Busy, Invisible, etc. FRING doesn't support that.
Anyway, both are good softwares, and pretty easy to install and use. And with both of these, you can use a few different messengers - Yahoo!, MSN, GoogleTalk, Jabber, AOL, etc.
i have been a fan of both nokia and sony erricson phone for the past 10 yrs..have used some great handsets like -nokia's 9300,ngage,1100,2600,6030,3310,3315,3150,3100,n72
,6600,6630,(n95..though it was a cheap chinese one..) n5110.

finally, i got this beutyful P1i phone few days back..and m very much satisfied with the performance and the specifications of this phone..Here are my ratings on this phone

ITS A COLLECTORS ITEM ....REALLY.
FEW Things i expected but didnt get was..

- Headset volume could have been a bit more higher specially who lyks high volume.
- No profiles..
I hope my P1i stays wid me for gud 4-5 yrs and stays away from any problems…
God bless sony ericsson…thanks for making P1i…
Waiting to see Sony Experia and N97….hope they both do well…

-where can i find good games and applications for uiq3?
*this device is good, except for it's sluggish performance!
Anonymous ! pls tell me what about touchscreen quality because i am afraid from it"s probs thx dear
Being a mobile phone/gadget savvy, We'll this phone is good or even great... For me for as long as it has good features(3.2MP cam, 3g/video call/ WLAN-Wifi, Touch Screen/ UNIQUE QWERTY keypad) its ok! Cause what can u expect in a mobile phone, thats why its called mobile phone, basically just for call. SMS is added feature only but having all those features I think thats very awesome for a phone. So why looking for more features if its just a phone. If u want the best cam-go for a DIGICAM, want good music-go for an IPOD, want Internet connnectivity-go for a laptop/pc w/internet. And also We should not compare SE to Nokia as We compare apple to orange. Right??
But one great and best thing-feature of SE P1i for me is its UNIQUE QWERTY keypad-cause its not the usual thing u can see in every phone. I believe this is the only phone that has this kind of keypad.
