What is firmware ?
Firmware is a coloquial name of the system software of your device, containing the Symbian operating system, the UIQ platform software as well as other software controlling the hardware parts of your Usmartphone. The firmware also contains various built-in applications like e.g. the Opera web browser, office applications, etc.

New August 2007 frimware released!
GO & update your phone!
it fixed most problems!
it sounds that it could be a hardware problem already. the screen mechanism might have lost its sensitive sensor or something.
have you tried flashing the firmware again even if its already updated? if yes, then i suggest you bring it to the nearest sony ericsson repair center.
congrats on your new p990i
you have to remove the battery cover and the battery itself to hook the strap inside. then put the battery back and the cover.
hi ppol.. just got my P990i today.. can anyone teach me the easiest way to insert the handstrap?
I think ppl buy P9 bcoz it have touch screen but if you want to compare with other phone beside palm moto V9 is your choice.

If your phone just froze and doesn't react to pressing any buttons, you don't have to remove the battery to restart it. Sony Ericsson P-series phones have a soft-reboot function. Just press and hold the Power button for about 10 seconds and the phone will reboot.
What is CDA?
Cellular Digital Accessory
The Cellular Digital Accessory (CDA) number identifies the software version and customization of a Mobile phone.
Customization, among others, relates to operator-customized startup and shutdown videos, user greeting, web browser's home page and preinstalled bookmarks and also language packs that come preinstalled with the phone. CDA version depends on the country of purchase as well as on the network operator.
So CDA is the main part thats tells us firmware is new or not
