i have experienced what you are talking abou (how the delete bottom disappears at times when marking several msgs) you can use the delete botton on your keyborad to do this.
Hi Everyone,p990i in my opinion is one of the best phone around in the market.Its very stable and responsive.i dunno wat you people do with your sets for it to hang or freeze Or maybe you u people expect miracles out of it.Remember its only a symbian with 200mhz processor and not an intel core 2 duo.Plz be patient with this phone .Its a top class device from SE.And one more thing plz stop comparing it with se p910 cuz i have been using both these sets.p990 is far ahead.If u want longer bty life than reduce its brightness to 40-45.Turn off wlan/bluetooh.Its a very manly phone for those who think its heavy plz dont buy it,go for those feminish light toys.Love this set and it will love you.
Hi, bjohn. Well, unlike the SE series u can't delete the contacts in the 'to' new sms list. the only thing that makes it go away is if u send more sms to other contacts then the previous ones drop down the list till it goes...or leave it and keep sending sms and after about a week it goes on its own..it expires!. If anyone has another idea,I'd like to hear it cos its a real privacy issue.
Quick question for everyone. How come sometimes u can delete old sms messages in ur inbox n sent folders by marking several n the next time u try it the delete option is not there on the menu? anyone experienced this? Thanks.
can anyone tell me if the p990i can organize the messages? like in the nokia phones, messages in the inbox can place in a different folders you made. does this phone can do the same feature?? hope you answer me for those who own this kind of phone...please..thanks a lot!!
I am using a 2 gig sandisk pro duo memory card and I have had no problems. Been working fine for over a month now. I did wonder why the phone didn't come with a sony branded card.
would it be better if you have a larger memory stick installed to make it work faster?
the best phone ever no hang ups what so ever i don't know what you people are doing with your phone why it always hangs but for me it doesn't hang up it has a great perfomance...i use this phone alot..
I was wondering if you could put Yahoo Messenger in it? if not what phone can I use that can run Yahoo messenger?
They better do more firmware updates on the P990i because I'm beginning to wonder why I sold P910 for this one.
ok guys the se people are going to continue the updates for the 990 next update aug 2007 here is the full messg on se forums
First of all I would like apologize for the long wait but now I finally have the official statement that you guys and gals have waited for, here it goes:
“In response to recent feedback from users and as a result of additional internal testing, Sony Ericsson has determined to offer a further firmware update for the P990 and W950 Walkman® phone. This move illustrates Sony Ericsson’s ongoing commitment to its existing ‘smartphone’ customers and the company’s desire to be responsive to customer feedback in order to provide an optimal user experience.
The next firmware release for the P990 and W950 will be available from the Sony Ericsson Update Service from August 2007.”
hey...i think the fone is great !! have been enjoying using it since the time i bought it.. and now is the best time to buy it, the prices have dived down bcoz SE wants to clear the stocks before they bring in the P1i...
I purchased this phone two weeks back, few good things and less down side about this phone. Somebody asked how to update the OS of this phone. I hope owner of this phone will have the PC Suit, Download the Upgrade Manager from the Sony Ericsson Site and install in ur computer. After that u can connect the phone and run the upgarde application, major part you need to be connected to internet to enable this software to download upgrade for this phone. It takes 25 - 30 mins to complete. The upgrade GUI is very user friendly. After upgrade I have not seen any major changes except the Camera Interface have some advance feature. The drawback which i faced on this phone, I have purchased 2GB Sony PRO Memory card which didn't supported by the phone, as installed program didn't run properly or photo didn't came fully. All problems i faced on 2GB card only, but it supported 1GB / 512MB cards of SanDisk. I didn't tried 2GB of SanDisk. If anybody can help on this issue of 2GB Card will be very helpfull.

HI ... can any one tells me how to erase names of your contacts in the create new message..
Have anyone of you tried to listen the music via Bluetooth hand free, i connected blue tooth handfree with mobile, and played the file, and when i go into the options, and over thr is a tab of transfer sound,inside that thr is no option to transfer the sound to the bluetooth device, though it was connected, Can anyone of you can guide me on this.
as far as i know, it is not possible to download to older firmwares. the SEUS will install the lastest firmware on the server then you run the update. the only way to geta different firmware on your phone is to change the CDA version or also known as de-branding... this is very risky business,as your phone may crash...you can pay someone to do it or you can do it yourself...just do a google search on it... once the cda version is changed the update service will recongnize that this is froma different origin/region and install the lastest version of that new cda....to check what different regions/cda version are available go here, http://uiq3.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/CDA/P990i
hope that helps. good luck
