I just had my mobile firmware updated a few days ago and I still have it at R9F011. solves a lot of the glitches I have been experiencing. Still no news on when theyre releasing PC Suite for Vista? They've been telling me that it should be released within the second quarter of this year, yet still nothing... :(
LoDp: COuldnt have made a better decision myself *grin* Have fun with your 990i! Im loving mine... every single minute its on my hands. :)
P-Series: Your problem sometimes happens when you install an application that has the same functionality as the built in programs in the phone. For examply, I installed a an MP3 player called Unreal Player on my P910i, and whenever I click on an Mp3 for it to play, it would give out that error. What I do is, I open the application that I downloaded on to the phone and open the music file from there... it should work. :) And also check that the software that youre uploading on to your phone is made for the Symbian UIQ OS.
Shawn: If you would rather not use the disc2phone software that SE packages with your phone, you can creat the folders and place the Mp3s in it, yourself. You do this by opening the Music folder on your MS Duo card then creating Subfolders of Artists names, then create subfolders in the Artists' folder and name them according to the album of the certain Mp3 you want to store. Open the "album" bub-folder and copy your Mp3 file there. Repeat for other artists and albums. That should enable you to use the music players sorting capabilities. :)
if this error come then it means that you are downloading wrong applications, try to download application made for p990i, go to mobile9,zedge,or mobango
I downloaded songs from limewire mp3 format and it wont let me drag and drop. It trys to copy and then says ERROR COPYING on every one of them ? What do I do
LOVE IT DUDE, SWEET AND SEXY. I have been using NOKIA for years and I was crazy. This is it and I cant wait to explore more. Need help with games or downloads. thanks
hi guys how can i install software on my p990i because everytime that i try to install it says no viewer can be found in this phone pls help me i want to install many software. please please be generous
To MuyGuapo :
Thanks alot there. Yea. Have to say the world renowned "plastic feel" of nokia models ( not all at least ) really is a drawback which will hold people back from purchasing their almost superior phones. But then again $ plays an important factor here. So P990i here i come!!!!!! =P
Hi just bought a new P900i, wanted to know some pointers abt the phone, also where to get some good compatible software and games and any other word of advice anyone can give me. thanks. Hope someone replies.
Hai hal hw oftn it hangs
wat r the softwares tat makes this phone hang and lag
If youre a previous P910i user like I am, there sure is a lot to get used to upon your migration to the P990i. a lot more key presses for them otherwise mundane task for the P910i. But for what its worth, the improvement from the P910i is simply enormous. Thank God for the better keypad! I dont know about you guys but im sure youve noticed the P910's keypad was just so prone to cracking and breaking right in the upper center of the keypad module which bends the whole flip when you SMS or dial a number... and turns the character entering a haywire of sorts! (What I did was I went to Semicon, coaxed one of the sales person to trade the cracked portion of my keypad to that of their dummy unit. And it worked! hehehe!) My P990 still manages to turn a few heads (despite its being in the market for more than a year) and is definitely smart enough to do a whole lot. A true marriage of beauty and brains. *grin*
I agree with you on the touch screen being more suitable for internet browsing. You just dont have the same maneuvering capabilities on a joystick or keypad compared to a touch screen. Here in the Philippines (Cebu City), the price of the P990i is absurdly low... I was this close to getting a N95 or a N93i, but I couldnt get myself to buy something as tacky (my very humble opinion) as a Nokia in all its plastic-ky glory especially after the price drop on the P990i (roughly around $330 US here, could be even way cheaper in Sim Lim in Singapore). So LoDp after much consideration, you might just find yourself a happy camper with the P990i after all. Cheers!
For the one asking about a comparison on the N73 and P990's cameras... The former has a 3.15mp camera (marketed as 3.2MP) and the SE P990i has 2MP camera. I have a couple of friends who have the N73 and compared to the pictures I took with my P990i, it definitely delivered better pictures. But by no means is the picture quality of the P990i bad. It actually takes awesome pictures for a 2MP class mobile phone camera. If there is anything to be expected from the SonyEricsson line is that it will, at the very least, give you great pictures and great music. :)
Lastly... a little tip. when getting a new P990 phone or periodically checking a P-series, you might want to do this. (I take no responsibility for whatever happens to your phone if you run this as this is a technician diagnostic tool for the P series phones... especially if you accidentally choose to reformat your internal memory) With the jog dial and the asterisk key on the key pad, do this sequence.... Move jog dial up one notch, then press asterisk key, press jog dial down 2 notches, then asterisk key, then one notch down again on the jog dial and lastly an asterisk key. (up,*,down,down,*,down,*) This will bring out the service menus. There you have the option of running the service test which will check almost all the aspects of your phone. from keypads, to internal speakers, to the touchscreen. This will also show you software version information. Please take extreme caution on the last menu item which will format your internal disk. Ive never opened it and Im not about to find out. press the back key to exit it. on the older P series models, you might have to restart your phone. Cheerios!!!
ok, people, for prices of phones in greenhills manila, philippines, check out http://www.greenhills.com.ph/cellphonegalore.asp uhh and as you will see here,p990i sells at 16,500 php. That is roughly umm.. 330 USD or less. So, its a bargain. considering this phone was initially much much more expensive. Need I mention that you can bargain for a cheaper price in greenhills? ;)
