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? ;)
I am facing a mystrious problem in P990i that when a 50 MB video file is playing in the phone and in the midway i try to iadjust the volume,The device frequently gets hanged ,in times the voice is coming from the back ground with black fore ground...Can any one help me out...Mine firmware is R9F011...Can any one tell me when the next Firmware will come out...
Had gone to buy N95 but on seeing the demo changed my mind. The fabrication is plasticy and cheap. The silver finish will wear out after a month or so. Disappointed with Nokia. Bought P990 updated firmware n bingo its gr8. Will take a week gettin used to as P910i was my phone earlier.
i have p990i the firmware is r9f011,,
do you know when they will publish the new firmware??
I m user of n73.so i want to know how is the camera quality of p990?difference between camera result of n73 or p990?My only confusion is camera.pls tell me
@ SAM, the one with "quickshare" is the original one. "P990i" was a typographical error. the head machine operator love P990i so much that he printed "P990i" in the printing machine template. the errorneous production continious and they live happily ever after (according to legend) ;-)
P990 is a amazing phone. Takes time gettin used. What is the difference between phones that have P990i or Quickshare below the keypad???
Thanks for the feedback there. Well yea im very comfortable with a keypad but then again a touch screen would be more accustomed to surfin am i right? Initially i was going for the N95 but the features doesnt really justify the price IMHO and the hardware issues are really a let down. Another thing is that the local price for the P990i is really really tempting. Btw, Im from Malaysia. Hopeto get some feedback. Cheers! =P
dont buy this, buy the se p1, is the same but more smaller, and have 128mb of ram this have 64mb. and more great things
If youre still thinking of upgrading to a P990i from youre N70. First figure out if this will truly be an upgrade for you. Do you need a communicator class phone that relies heavily on the touch screen interface for maximum utilization of its functions? If you do, the SE 990i could be a good choice as it doesnt only have a touch screen and but also numeric keypad that will probably help in the transition from a keypad based interface to a touch screen interface. If youre comfy with keypads, you might want to try Nokia's E series. The P990s 2MP camera is comparable to that of my w800i that gives exceptional photo quality for a mobile. The screen makes taking and viewing photos way better than the smaller screen size of the w800. Whichever you decide on, I hope you get what you need and want. Cheers.
Ive been a firm user of the P series of SE. I actually still have my P910i that I still use. Ive always been a big fan of the Symbian UIQ interface... probably because Ive gotten used to it after my 4th P series. My P990i does have a number of minor hickups, that Im sure SE will figure out a way to correct in the succeeding firmware updates. This is inevitable as they are still using Symbian 9.1 UIQ 3 on the soon to be launched P1. Ive experienced sudden phone rebooting, led lights refusing to go off or stop blinking, and the one that really gave me a scare was when my earpiece speakers refused to function. All this was remedied (wether permanently or otherwise, Im dont know) with my turning off the phone and removing the batteries. Here's a little tip as well, make sure that the contact points of your SIM card are clean. and the best way to clean the gold contact points on a SIM card is by laying it on a table and using a piece of paper, start rubbing the gold contact points, Youll notice dirt and oxidation coming off, fairly easy. Do not use solvents or cleaning liquids as these may seep into the inner circuitry of the module. Make good use of the task manager... eliminate applications that are running on the back ground. On my P910i, I was use a program called "Tracker" which is pretty much a great task manager, amongst its other capabilities. It has a useful setting that enables you to terminate all or choice programs that are running, when you close your phone's flip. Id set an exception for the music player so it doesnt stop playing my MP3s when I close the flip. Im not sure if it will run on my P990i as I never really felt the need for it, considering the built in task manager on the P990. Anyways, If you have other questions, feel free to email me, and Ill try to get back to you on it. Ive come to a number of tricks when it comes to handling the P series. Anyways, for those who need a PIM for the Vista OS, I tried MobilEdit and Oxygen Phone Manager both for the Symbian platform versions, they work fine with little hickups. Yet im still waiting for the release of SE's Phone managing suite for the Vista OS which they say would be released within this 2nd quarter of the year. So it should be released within the month or so.
Don't never say this phone is perfect or excellent until you install lot of application or using lot of multitasking prog or use the wifi too. For min. Activities (like teen doing such as mp3,cam,radio) is good but for max. Activities(like business people doing such as wifi,multitasking,browsing,download) is SUCK!!! SE People has tried to make some joke with this "very excellent product" but NOT FUNNY!!!!
To jeremy and all:
About WLAN, i'm facing this prob also. This is because of p990i just has wifi 802.11b not "b/g". It's different between b and b/g. "b" is old product of wifi and "b/g" is update product. With "b" is easy to connect but IT'S HARD TO SURF!! And I try to reconnect it, then the phone is REBOOT ITSELF even my phone firmware is new(R9F011)!!! WHAT KIND OF NIGHTMARE!!! I will trade this phone tomorrow and sure losing my money for USD$120. I think it's cost to learn that no phone is perfect but this product is BIGGEST FAILURE OF SONY ERICSSON MADE EVER!!!!TO MUCH FAILS IS NOT ABOUT PERFECT OR NOT, BUT DUMB AND DUMBER,LOL!!!!!
