After research finally i choose this p990 phone from other candidat such as 02,nokia base on smart n pda phone. price for this phone now is competitive with the full fuction when installing n update firmware/software. P1 just win the camera 3Mp ,memory higher than p990, design n batery. other feature is same. Let's see qwerty keyboard in p990 better than P1. Viva P990i
why would you tell people not to upgrade firmware?
these are some of the improvements of the new firmware as observed by P990i users.
* More Ram - ~16MB at startup
* Fast startup
* Overall fast response to applications and menus
* Browser is fast (new opera version)
* Camera improved - auto focus more responsive, better video recording
* New icons for .jar or .sis in file explorer
* Gallery preview is no more blurry
* Music update is faster
* Auto key lock is default now
* Alarm is loud and at a constant level
* A new menu has been added under control panel - others: payment transactions
anyways if you're happy with your firmware, thats good for you.
any other P990i users out there who are happy with their current firmware, you can stay with it if you want. as long as you're satisfied.
im just sharing the improvement that new firmware will give.
R9F011 is good then R9G007 there is lot of things
change in R9G007 one of my Friend has R9F and i have
R9G so what i feel R9F is good who is using R9F dont
upgrade ur firmware
There is nothing bad in this set as i have to think
for change this set N95 N93i N92 N73 N70 no one can
beat or compete P990i P990i is best
Mr. Neo - It is expected to drop price of P990i considering that this unit was already in the market for almost a year now (or so). I bought my unit the very first day it was launched in KSA first week of October last year (2006) and it costs me 3,000 Saudi Riyals. However, I heard that all units available in the Philippines are re-conditioned from China that's the reason also why price is 14,000 pesos while in KSA still around 19,000 pesos.
lloyd - Up to 8GB is supported. It mentioned clearly in the User Manual. If you are still planning to buy P990i, I would recommend to wait either W960 or P1. There's nothing wrong with P990i but this unit is pretty old already. I am using mine for 10 months already. P1 is a better alternative or even N95 as I am using as well.
ops sorry, its made in france...
mine is R9F011, i dnt have plans of upgrading my firmware, im totally satisfied with it.
This phone is not what its hyped up to be, it has a very bad flunctuating signal even though at times phone shows 5 bar signal calls go voice mail, camera is decent, but phone wise most depressing pile of you know !
At least if you already own it you can st least have fun scanning business cards no other decent purpose even the mp3 stinks.and so does the rediculos video recording.
onethings for sure p990i is still the best bargain phone out in the market (phil)...every week it always drop by hundred.....i been using it for a month now and still no problem..mines r9f...battery life 2 days., 3days max minimum usage using swiss manager pro for memory leakage problem,...sooo sexy without the flip....and sooo macho with it!!!go buy it now......pls!!!! the screen is bigger than the n95 of course without the flip...(but not as clear as n95) but who cares!! the touchscreen,big screen,form factor,wlan,office,camera,radio mp3 video, web browser,14500k!!!!...still the best phone over all..go hit me if you find other phones with soo much to offer like my p990i
it also have an instant messenger apps!!!!woah!!!(plenty of available apps for the record for free!!!!)
hi. this is the same person
anyway, its ok to charge your P990i everyday but that should not be the case.
i normally charge it every 2 days. if im not using it that much, around 3 days.
i suggest you fully drain your battery (like it will not turn on anymore) then racharge it fully. to this cycle twice or three times. this will help you maximize the battery especially if its new and out of the box which is recommended. after the 3 full drain and full charge cycle, you can charge your phone normally even if its not fully drained yet.
for the time during sleep mode, i havent tried it yet and i think there's no option to do that (as far as i know). this will help save battery as well because if in case there's an option to display clock in sleep mode, the screen is still working and consuming battery energy. nothing is displayed on the screen during sleep mode hence it was called "sleep mode".
if you really want to see the clock or time, you can just press any key on the number pad and it will activate the screen again for a while. or you can turn off power save mode so that the phone always show the display, but it will sacrifice battery life.
there might be a software or some type of screensaver that we p990i users can install which shows the clock. this could be a third party software.
P990 is better than n73Me, N73 is good for capturing images and music, but it often hangs and opening an application is very slow, i sold my n73me to purchase p990, and im very happy with it. but the camera and music of n73 is way better than p990. overall, p990 wins
R9G is the newest firmware, but if you are on philippines, the latest firmware is R9F
what is the firmware of the p990i which u bought at glorietta?? is it the latest firmware R9F?
how is the p990i with its office softwares?can you work on them without much hassles?like the excel and email softwares?..
