Phone has great features but damnit unlike the P910i, it freezes like crazy and battery life is awful Sadly I regret buying this SonyEriccson P990i.
Where is the new SE P-series? While SE is so quiet, NOKIA once again celebrating around the globe because of its new blockbuster product the Nokia N95 which is the best of the best phone in the world now. I've been using P990i for the last 7 months and I want a new P-series already to beat the Nokia N95. I still prefer SE P-series because of its touchscreen feature. I don't use other SE models because the screen is too small unlike P-series. SE please show your next P-series, its design, specification, etc.
Where i could find Opera mini application?
Could i get it with free charge?
About the WLAN, some server don't allow Smart Phone or PDA Phone to connect their connection, so it will be failed to connect.
Yesterday, i ask the IT in my office.
this phone sucks; i have it for about 6 months; the battery is crap, cause it lasts only one day, it's big, ugly, and the display is starting to have some frequence noise; the camera totaly sucks, and the firmware is slower than any other phone i had; i've selled it and i bought 8800 sirocco, and this is the first phone that i really love.
How can i upgarde my firmware to R9 ?
please learn me step by step or if you can send mail to me firstname.lastname@example.org . of course some times my phone going to hang ! WHY ?
Hey I'm thinking of buying this phone but it's on orange (my bro works for orange) Are the p990s from orange restricted on the latest firmwares, and if so, will the phone have loads of bugs?
i just updated my p990 to the latest firmware.I've noticed that there r some improvements with the previous firmware,for instance,the volume of the speakers has been increased and there is a transition menu in the control panel which i dont know what is used for.The good part is that when u open for the first time an application it will open very fast than before.PLZ post if u can find some other improvements.thnx
We have a new UPTIME RECORD!!!
My P990 (R9) was up for 7 days and 3 hours, with help from swiss manager.
It crushed when I recieved a very important phone call from abroad!!
PLEASE - sony ericsson guys! make a better memory management component for the great phone! Is is that HARD?
I have been using P990 since last 1 month. Previously I was using Nokia 3230. By all standards, I think 3230 is a good phone. P990 is wonderful upgrade. I had updated the firmware to R9. The phone does not hang. There are absolutely no bugs. Yes it takes time getting used to the phone but once u r through than the phone is pure joy. Sony has very thoughtfully given a numeric keyboard like a standard mobile keyboard & also a QWERTY keyboard. The jog dial works seamlessly. The handwriting option is very good though it takes time getting used to it. The sound quality on the loudspeaker is average but in a small room, the sound quality is enough. The browser is fast and stable. U can open attachments. However Sonyericsson support site does not open properly. I have installed Opera mini also. The radio is also good. However when u press the button on the wired handsfree instead of channel change, 990 goes mute. The phone is pretty fast. U can listen to music, surf the internet, also take pictures without loss of speed.
The 2 MP camera is great. The photographs are excellent. The camera speed is fast. I hav'nt used the video recording though.
I have extensively used P990i & I am satisfied with the performance.
P990i is highly recomended. I think u cannot compare any phone in the market to P990i as this phone is a complete package: good looks, performance, multimedia capabilites, 2MP camera, MP3 player & radio, PDA functionality etc. Go for it
