For the person who asked about the P990 or O2 Atom, don't even think about the Atom. I had one for 2weeks. It annoyed me so much in its software bugs, I sold it and bought am ever faithful P910. That was last year & I just ordered a P990. Can't wait to get it.
There is a New Software Update,it is R9F011.It is a major Update with big improvements.Go to sonyericsson.com and download the update service to your PC then connect your P990i to your PC and follow the instructions.Make sure you have PC Suite installed on your PC as well.
my software version is R9EA001, what version is this? do i have to update the software?
how can i play videos off youtube with my p990i its telling me that i dont have the lates java install
hey man!! I`ve got N70, and the battery is ok.. Runs for 3 days even with a lot of music and camera.
hey put your p990s brightness on 50% and it saves a hell lot of battery and its still very bright
My p990i battery is the best. It gives me a back up of 2 days wid talktime of 2.5 hrs daily. Hanging is a big problem. Is der anyway out or just disposing it off is a way.
can any one post the link on how to download the latest firmware/software for SE P990i (R9F011).
After upraded to R9F011 my p990 is much faster than ever. But if i play music on media player and go to other app, sometime music is stop and must be back to media player to play again the song,why?
And NOISY SOUND,why se people cant remove it on last update firmware? Is this because of software or hardware?It's very disturbing me. Does anyone got the same problem like me about this noisy sound in wired hf?(to feel it,you must listen in quite environment).Thanks

This idea may come from nowhere but if youre undecided between m600 and p990,, and yes ive known 2 people with this dialema,,its best to go with p990 as if its the flip your concerned about you can whip this off to look like the m600,,but you get the camera with its uses plus a larger screen ,, wifi and better battery life(ok some companys despise a cam)..Sometimes people get mixed up in the dialema and often get spec mixed up as i had the m600 down for wifi wich would have been a lie..Mines with vodafone at the moment after a big protest to finally get it sorted..I fully updated it and got it stripped down to the bare bones i then put on a 10 meg video but still restarted and ive said this in earlier post i am still for this fone and would say people to buy it,, i just think its some fones perhaps need a proper look at and others need the s/e updates,,
Mine come with the 950 milliamp batt but its still gives me a good run but obviously its on 2.5g etc and i have the backlight at 47% as this increases the colour a lot more for me personnely.I am sick of all this advertising of n95 its on every bus-stop were i am and im happy at 2megapixels for fotos and the reviewers are saying that its putting pressure on the sensor as it needs more light to work at that concentration of 5mp..With the p990 youre getting the screen size and you can operate apps miles quicker with touchscreen.
Missing it now but hopefully the wait will be justified and i will be rewarded with a very powerfull smartfone ...
Cna anyone help? Im stuck with the SEUS. After the country selection it says: "Finalizing..." but then stops and my processor usage is max(from Task Manager). I have 2.6 GHz with 512 Ram and even updated my set a month ago. I wanted to know if someone experienced similarly. I've tried ever tip from SE.

Guyz here is a link regarding P700/M610...
thanks to peterkay and the oher guy who posted the picture of P700's phone status.
I know how helpful reviews can be to people actually looking to buy the particular phone so I'm going to be as clear-cut as possible.
This phone has EVERYTHING, from a decent camera to a Qwerty keyboard to wireless LAN. And everything works flawlessly. The touch-sensitive screen makes browsing a breeze.
Initially I did have ONE issue with the screen but I got that fixed under warranty. After that, I proceeded to get the firmware upgraded (currently on Org R5A17) and the phone has gotten noticeably faster. NO crashes, no glitches NOTHING.
Just upgrade the firmware when you get the phone and you will NEVER have to complain.
the rumored P700 will be renamed M610 as it really looks no more like the P-series trend and the news leaked out the internet saying P-series is dead. maybe somehow K and Z series will follow too substituted by C and E series. anyway M600 tends to have better RAM management than P990 and it's obviously due to the less functions and features. SE should work for the better RAM management and increase it more to enable advanced 3rd party applications to run efficiently.
to sum up heres what is needed for improvement in the UIQ:
1.RAM- it it hould be 128Mb, the Flash must be 256Mb. "more memory better performance"
2.Processor speed- isn't it time for an upgrade? it should run arm11 or TI 2430 processor already that has speed of 330Mhz+
3.Video Processor - Being a flagship, it should have the famous ATI/Nvidia chip like the ones on W900 and Razr V6.
4.and of course the updates on the software must be focused very well for further improvement.
will all these upgrades the performance will make it Greatly better. and also the developers will have interest for making more applications as they won't have wasted heir time and money developing softwares that won't work well on a UIQ device.
to be honest guys, i really love this phone. before i bought it i've read a lot of bad reviews way back in october that it made me decide to wait a little further till the software gets better, then i checkd this forum again in jan 2007 still a lot of hangng, crashing, etc, etc..comments about the phone, i was realy confused till i finally decided to get one.. alas, never encountered any crashing,it only kinda rebooted twice or thrice in 3 months since ive had it. i was using a lot of application then, it was understandable...infact my version was the r7. i beleive it has to do with the supplier guys. it must've been a bad bunch of apples sold in bulk....anyway, till now still using the old r7, no problems with it, only problem though is the price dips every now and then...
A grat phone only after you upgrade the Firmware to the latest.....!! Wouldn't want to discurage any body, it only support PC running Windows, for MAC user only Avoid this phone.
