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

Has anyone any information on the phone P908? cos even GSM Arena doesn't.
Vin: The maximum memorystick it can hold (as stated in the Sony Ericsson "whitesheet" a developers information release and from other people's experience) 8 Gigabytes. I have not verified this myself, but I have tried using 4 Gigs and it functioned without a hitch.
For the rest of you guys experiencing phone software freezing... Upgrade to the newest firmware. I have done that and I have not experienced a single "hang" in over 2 months since I got it updated.
Justin: The package does come with a wrist strap. To attach it, youll have to remove the battery cover and hook it on the inside; let the rest of the strap go through slots cut into the body of the phone and replace the battery cover.
And for Pete's sake, What if your phone is made in China or France? It will have the same capabilities. How long your phone will last will ultimately depend on how well you take care of it. People say ignorance is bliss, but at this point, its just plain irritating.
Jazzsoul: You can download a language pack that will enable you to use Chinese characters. If you will get this in your native land, you'll most probably get this at a default to your native language... If you need additional language support... go to the Sonyericsson support website and download a language pack.
Guys, lets not be to hasty with our words... There are hundreds of mobile phones around to suite your needs and wants. If you have had a valid bad experiene with the phone, open it up on the forum and try to ask for help. Otherwise, quit lambasting the phone and the users of the phone. This is a great product for people that find that it works for them well enough to be called a great phone. If you love your Nokia or Samsung or whatever you preffer, it would be best to be throwing praises about them in their respective handset page. I respect your opinion and respect mine when I say that when someone just screams "sonyericsson sucks or nokia is the best", its just not productive and is only adding to the noise pollution. Cheers.
i am very very disappointed with SE, never in P series history the price dropped to at least half the original price, i bought mine around $670usd in febuary and now it costs as much as $300 bucks, wtf!!! my p910 did better, before it was completely phased out it costs atleast $480... P990 just became a phone for the masses.. exclusivity just doesn't resonate around P990 anymore..but if its any consolation never encounterd any problem with my p990 except some occasional hanging..perhaps the reason why is SE never perfected the software they started with .. for me im switching to n95.. its back to nokia again, goodbye to SE.. to those planning to get the P1, hope price doesnt dip as much as its predecessor.
Do u have softwares for P990i, like MSN, Yahoo messenger, IRC etc., I will appreciate if u like to share them.
Thanks in Advance
this is a nice phone even if it has a low software n it hang's sometimes. for a less than $200.00 dollars price it's really not bad....
