the alarm was so loud for me guys, I bouht this 2nd hand and went to Sony Ericsson so they can check the phone for me and upgraded it to the latest software...I was happy... very fast and reliable in every feature it has!
there are only 3 UIQ phones at the moment and P1 will add to the list in the future. so the lack of sofware support is a huge concern but after P1's release 'm prety sure they could be even more. bad thing motorola collaborates with the UIQ utilization, but i's not a touchscreen version so it's useless. they even make another standards alone=( unlike before(so will there be any softwares for UIQ 3.1 as it is on UIQ 3?) if only motorola incorporates UIQ 3 instead, then UIQ 3 software support will be better.
free software site for p990!!!!! my p990 ver cxc R9F011. cda R5A13. MY P990i is high speed phone.not best site for software!!!! nokia best free software.sofware site for uiq3 plesae!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
hey..i have used the M600 for a while now and i found the software on it really slow...i wanted to go in for the P990 now...what i wanted to know is, weather the latest update has improved the speed of the software(also the loudspeaker volume)..and do the applications still have to be closed manually thru task manager (I found this part really frustrating cause when the RAM was full the phone use to restart)...pls som1 help me out soon....thnx
seems like previous P990 future buyers who have ditched this thing like a hell because of the software problems repored by those who have used the early versions have reverted towards the interest for P990. seems like some people have already discerning the recent improvements and the defuncted interest caused by the previous problems are are now being gone little by little. keep up the good work SE..=D
to update ur fone u need 2 download the update service frm se website suport section.please ensure u have the latest flash player. and hold c button on your fone when needed.simple...enjoy...i surf web daily thru my fone. forget your pc. this baby can do every thing ...surfing net...chating..amazin mp3 & video player....3d games...word excel...camera....ultimate..
Try contacting SE cuz u might have received a lemon unit. I would recommend updating ur p990i. u can update ur phone by downloading the software update program at SE's website.
Battery life is teriffic on this device. Although when u first buy the unit, it doesnt hold charge for that long but gradually it starts holding the charge. obviously if u are using all the features (i.e. bluetooth, camera, flash, WLAN etc.) then the standby time goes down significantly. I use bluetooth and WLAN a lot and i find myself charging the phone every OTHER day and sometimes its not even drained all the way.
Camera result wont be as great as ur N73 thats forsure but for some reason all the Nokias have a "blueish/greyish" look in their pics, u wont be seeing that in the p990i.
Sound quality is terrible on a speakerphone (compared to p910 or even p800 if u have ever used any of those). I was really disappointed in the quality of she speaker. U can hardly hear any bass and on top of that it wasn't loud enough. Although with the most recent software update the mp3 playback and ringtones through the speaker have gone loud (yes there is a significant difference). Still the update has not helped in "improving" the sound quality through the speakers.
FM radio can only be heard through the headphones provided with the phone (as the headphones have the transmitter in it). Mp3 playback is awesome on the headset. I use my bluetooth stereo headset once in a while and the sound quality is simply amazing (better than my ipod nano).
I dont use my phone for playing games so i wont be of much help in that but it came with a few games n i played the golf game once in a while which seem to be all right.
Make sure to download the latest update as it made my phone SUPER FAST and it helps a lot to browse thru the menus. Cheers!

The picture from bluetooth goes to the Messages, where sms are. Click on it and choose save, then it goes to the pictures section.
YES when you upgrade through SonyEricsson website, the new firmware is loaded to your phone.
the phone is fantastic, it meets all of my expectations, everything about it is just perfect, except some "bugs" i already knew about...notice that the alarm volume rises continuously and is meant to be low at the start in order not to scare you. I have one question though: I received a picture via blueetooth. I enter messaging and select download...what happens with the picture, where does it go ?
Thanks for the explanation of "Transitions". I really wonder why the word transitions was used and not something like Animation (on/off).
NOOR the phone price if i know it depends on your country. For my country(Cambodia), the SE P990i =USD 345 but i see in plemix.com the up to date price is USD 329

To all UIQ 3 users
once you have the phone software updated with R9 and the version of the "organizer" being R5xxx or R6xxx. turn off the menu animation(transitions) so that the RAM won't beget problems i.e. memory leaks. and perform faster that can even par P910's performance.
hope this helps=D
