i am having 910i. I am planing to buy 990i. pl. somebody give effective suggtion and plus and minus
It is a great phone, but it has a number of problems that Sone Ericsson have indicated they won't solve. I really like the phone, but Sony Ericsson is too tied up to support it.
I have owned a number of SE phones and they have done exactly the same thing with every phone - they stop supporting it long before the bugs are sorted out. Also - will it really kill them to release a new feature or two? These phones aren't cheap...
There will only be one more release and I am afraid that won't be enough to fix all the issues.
I would have upgraded to the P1, but I won't be burnt again.
i heard that the latest august firmware already available. did the latest firmware solved all of the previous problem? what is the different with the previous firmware? thanks in advance...
To Milk Shake
The new version is
CXC 162037 R9GA001
CXC 162036 R6E28
is this the updated ver?
make sure keylock is not enabled in flip open mode. because it is also possible to lock touchscreen with the keylock slide on the left side of the phone.
if you really need to navigate to control panel, you can use the jog dial (side scroll wheel) of the phone and if you want to select an option, push the jog dial inward.
yup, firmware is available online so people anyware can update
please refer on the image, has anyone seen, about the flip cover on the second image sold separately on the market?
Thanks dear i also have checked this with other three networks sims thats problem by network provider i m using Telenor Sim and the customer care officer from help line She told me there is no solution this problem is in few numbers but once i read such kind of comment here in gsmarena in 990 post thats very bad thing tell me one thing y the mostly people writing here CDA number when i had Nokia i sent the mail to the (Nokia now to SE few month before) and i asked what is the firmware and what is the actual firmware Number what is firmware thats very long thing to tell but the firmware Number is Phone

how come the latest firmware of se p990i does not come in the same availability through out the whole world. how come R9G011 is not yet available in the philippines considering that the firmware can be download from the internet (website of SE)?
its me, unknown person
i tried sending a test message to my phone and the time is correct. i have not really focused on this issue as im not after the time. although i tested it when you asked and i also told my friend to send me a test message and the time is correct.
this maybe an issue with
1) timezone setting on the phone (maybe using automatic update time or the otherway around or something)
2) your network provider's server time (this used to be a problem when i was using Nokia N80 the time displayed when i receive a message is around an hour late or something).
ill see if i can ask my other friend who is also using p990i if he experience your problem
it depends on your lifestyle.
if you dont really need a lot of features in a phone like p990i, then go for motorola.
but if your life mostly involves work related or everyday personal routine wherein you need a good calendar, organizer, note jotter, document viewer, wifi email and internet access. etc, then go for p990i.
im a user of p990i and although i am not an executive type of person, i use all the features of p990i such as the task list (all things i need to do for a particualr day), note jotter (taking down important data or information like address, item list i was asked to buy, etc), email (when i need to check any new job offers that needs urgent reply while im on the road), internet (when i need a quick search for info), calendar (for my appointments), document viewer/editor (for keeping my resume and updating it), etc... all these functions i use and cannot live without thats why i cant use motorola... moto v3x might have these functions but just basic or not easy to use compared to a touchscreen phone.
now i have a friend who owns v3x which she mainly use for text message and calls and a basic use for keeping short notes. she doesnt use email, internet, and organizer functions though she's more busy than me when it comes to work. she does keep data in her office PC and only access them there and not on the go...
so see it depends on your lifestyle. and i dont know your lifestyle so i cant just answer your question and say to get p990i or v3x... only you can answer which phone fits you, but i hope my post will help you in some way. =)
I'm using 4GB and it is just perfect , no slow nothing , maybe you need to update your firmware , by the way ! It support also 8GB if you want so
I'm a bit disappointed.. not with SE P990i, but with the comments i found here. I am actually looking for a comment about SE p990i on how good/bad it is, its advantages/disadvantages compared to other mobile phones, things like that.
I am currently comparing Motorola v3x and SE P990i and im having a hard time choosing betweent the two. this is because v3x is significantly slim compared to p990i, a lot cheaper, and looks more elegant but, p990i has more features (ofcourse) than v3x. So what do you guys think should i buy, SE P990i or Motorola v3x.
does P990i supports with 4gb card ? i'm currently using 2GB memo card, i would like to swithch to 4gb card, Also will the 3rd party appplications slow if i install it in memo card. Could anyone please suggest me.
Thanks in Advance.
Frnds, what are the updates in the latest frimware ? Could any please tell me.
thanks in advance...Navanee
i think ur the authority on p990..so plz help me out...phone's touchscreen has stopped working..it doesn't respond to touch...i also posted my problem probably two days ago...guys talking about calibrating screen...how can i calibrate screen when it doesn't respond to touch..what do u think whether its some hardware problem or some software problem...if its hardware then i might be sending it back to the company giving warranty and they will get it done..if its some software problem then upgrading the software will solve the problem??...its my first ever touchscreen phone so iam afraid upgrading might require tapping the screen and i might mess up in the middle of nowhere...so pplz tell me what to do....thanks
Is this new Firmware update avaliable for
Swisscom co-branded phones?
NAD INFORMATION work some time's then someone ignore basic thought's.
if you install 'R6E28' in your phone then,
phone : cxc162037 R9GA001
Bluetooth : cxc162058 R5A01
Organiser : cxc162036 R6E28
CDA : 162007/2 R6E28
set automaticaly. It miens they are part of
the new firmware "R6E28". so it is not
compulsary to define separately.
reconditioned unit means it has factory defects (rejected units from factory not 2nd hand) and been repaired by another party before selling it, which means the quality is not that reliable anymore because it does not undergo manufacturers quality inspection after the repair. that is the reason why reconditioned units are cheaper.
