SUPER COOL! I like the phone, i have it about for 2 months and it's very cool. I read most of user comments here and what i saw with my phone was not true. Phone it's working perfectly, not blocking at all, aplications are loading fast and the sound it's loud and clear. This phone was the perfect choice for me :)
Guys it was discussed 100 times here!!! Just read some posts here and don't ask again the same questions. So - IF you have a branded phone i.e. coming from your cell operator like Vodafone or Orange etc. you may NOT have the latest Firmware but the one which is SPECIFIED to your operator/country.
The only solution is to look at FlipOpen Shortcuts menu where is also Today screen with meetings, unread messages, recent calls and tasks.
my phone version is r9ea001 but i tried to the download the latest firmware through update service. it should be r9f001 but my phone version is still r9ea001
pls help... thanks
does anyone knows if I can set my P990i home screen to show my day appiontment. I want to be about to look at my phone in the morning and know what appiontment I have and what task I need to do without opening any apps.
hey guys have you tried installing this anti virus softare to your p990i phone? did it work?
where to update the lastest firmware update R9f001, i just updated the firmware through sony ericsson wesite but my version is jus REA001 after the update
the transition is the animation in your phone, if u turn it off the animation is off.. it really makes ur faster,wid dat off u can really see the real speed of the p990....
example of the animation, with the flip closed mode, when u press the shortcut key of the calendar ull see dat the calendar icon enlarges ryt?? that't one of the transition
the usual average of the battery life of my p990i is 2days with 200sms everyday and 5mins multimedia but no net.
update your firmware... it will resolve your software issues.. and even make ur phone better
to sola,,i am the battery complainer and always scrutinise battery life and i find the 950 ma lithium polymer pack very good..If you are not using 3g all the time/wifi- mine lasts 2 days+ with 1.5 hrs per day mp3 20 mins per day on phone plus 10 texts per day and it still goes on till the morning to wake me up but on second night now charge it for the next 2 days,,Next tele watching with 47% briteness rips thru battery in 1hr 50 minutes its on red but wen its on red change it to 2.5g and the bars creep up to 2.5 bars battery power showing 3g can tear any battery to bits,,i find it hard to flatten the battery in one day with these settings..... backlight time out 1 minute at 47% brightness on 2.5 g so i think this will give you an idea..i also tried back to back mp3 playing and with just the backlight on now and again to check battery but with nothing else used i got 31 hours playback
My P990i have this firmware version.Is it o.k? Sometimes have problem with Vijay Singh Golf,Business card scanner and Wifi.

I have finally decided to purchase this phone regardless of so many negative reviews and opinions. What the heck, it's like the phone was jinxed or something. No doubt there are some batches bogged with serious software flaws, but the gremlins can be fixed with firmware updates. Some p990 users say much of the glitches are with phones released on Orange. They recommend the Quickserve version. Can anyone comment on this? Also, any ideas on the average battery life? When properly sorted, the p990i is a sensational device - better described as a great rather than good phone. Thanks
Can someone help explain what "Transitions" does on the P990. Found in the control panel then devices. I am on Rel R9F011. Thx.
The best, the very best, is P990 -- if and when you do the updates. Best.
thanks Calvin and the other guys for your useful comments.
(by the way Calvin, the P990 works with memory stick duo, however it will also accept the smaller M2 card when used with the adaptor supplied with the M2 card,the 1gb card i use in my K800 cost me £16.00 off google shop)
with regards to my previous post about which phone to go for, i think the P990 is my prefered choice as i am not sure about the Nokia N series phones, they just dont appeal to me.
a leftfield choice would be the Blackberry Pearl, which i can also get as a free upgrade from my network provider (O2).
choices choices !
Dear Dominstry & All
Is there any new firmware out? i am on R9F011.
Please let me know. I saw a scrap somewhere saying that the CDA is a new one.
the phone is said to work on memory stick micro with adapter used.
