Hi androsboyz. The P990 that they are distributing here in the Philippines are made in China. With the wave of units that arrive this June here, most of them have already chinese characters on the keypad. It is still legit though but it is a little messy on the keypad side especially if you're not chinese (pardon for the chinese community) who uses this characters. With this, P990 is now only 14.5k-15k in Greenhills. Shame on those stores who are selling this unit at 25k!
is there a new firmware release for p990i??because there is a forum in noeman.gsm that says p990i has new frimware
Hi! I have a question,The new release of P990i is made in China???Because i saw it in SM Mall in the Philippines..Last question the keypad has a Chinesse Characters in the top of numeric keypad ABC it is original or clone???Hope you help me!!!Tenks
P990 is good phone but with the advent of faster processor now with their competitor, IMHO even the P1 cannot last that long. Software application alone is quite scarce but do expect that companies will support UIQ3 soon. Symbian s60 is relatively ahead of the pack in terms of software availability. This is also the reason why P990 didn't last on me, its now in the hands of other people as I traded it with SE's competitor phone. Peace! Ciao!
Thanks for your help..Jay. On the P1 issue, I still think the P series in its present form is the best..My advice to SE is to keep the old form n load it with the P1 features. The new P1 looks a lot like the M series with the same type of qwerty keypad. Is a P series upgrade or an M series upgrade? Question for Sony Ericsson ...why did the phone not include an update service like the K510i n others that way it easily updates online without all the confusing and complicated process it currently uses? Still love the P990
P990 will stop production soon,P1 is coming,P1 will be more expensive,but better camera. I think better wait for P1.
nice phone. I use it removing its key pad it look sexy. pic quality is great. video good then my old n80.it has one serious problem i cant hear its ring tone even in my home from another room. it so depressing. but e mail and sms option are nice it also support smiley. its software is slow then my previous motorolla A1000 which had previous version of UIQ.
So sorry for reposting....typos....
Do not buy this phone. I have just checked with SE Singapore. This model has been discontinued and it will be replaced by P1 which will be released very soon. It was a deal when a local Telcos offered if for S$198 with a 2 year contract.....At S$580 with no contract...its a real bummer.
Does anyone knows how to view video online? I tried to do what the instruction said but still won't work.
SE P990 moves like david beckem's grandpa.evey intruction,soooooooooo slow.hangs often.web browser slow.backlight darkens on its own.If performing a function and a call comes thru - freezes again.why? so little software support!!
Nice phone but needs improvement.Just dont drop in water because no matter how fast you retrieve it from the water it cannot be repaired.Speaker is very poor!!!
When u conect the phone 2 the PC, u get 2 options on the phone i.e. Phone mode - to use the phone as a modem, backup etc and File transfer mode - to use the phone to transfer audio, video files etc., to use the phone as the usb drive. U can see the memory stick in yr PC.
U need to use the phone in the phone mode 4 backup
A goodsmartphone. I use it every day since Saint Nicolas' Day, in December 2006. A pity that the battery needs to be charged at every 30 hours. So, I consider to have a new smartphone from Nokia, as soon as I have news from the new Communicator.

The built-in speaker is no good, very weak sound,not like Nokia5700.Anyway, the price has dropped drastically in malaysia,it is only about USD350.
first i would like to thank all persons here that advised me to buy yhis phone, and thanks to whom told me with the proiblems with it too, right now the only problem im facing is, where do you people find softwares and applications for the phone? instant massging and video streaming applications and games etc..
the few and expinsve applications on the SE website is really also boring !!
i will appreciate if any one told me any links for a good source of applications..
thanks for your comments...i guess there really isn't a function to turn off the lights when it's recharging other than putting it on flight mode or turning the thing completely off...
oh well..i'm gonna try to see if a screensaver shows when i'ts recharging..if so..i can put on a really dark screensaver so no bright lights at nite...
