I have good news and bad news 4 u..
I have try to download from UK site..the good news is YES(as you predict)..i am not losing anything(infact i get the quadra back)...BUT the BAD NEWS is I AM STILL GOT R7...YES!! I STILL GOT THE BIG "R" SEVEN...this is the detail:
Phone :CXC 162037 R7A001
Bluetooth :CXC 162058 R4F01
Organizer :CXC 162092 R2A05
CDA :CDA 162007/8 R2A04
I am still got R7...thank you...
So here's the big QUESTION..
"IS THE R9 ONLY FOR YOU GUYS WHO LIVE IN UK, US and INDIA?"(my conclusion as I read this post)..and IF the answer is YES...then..WHY?HOW?
Look further down on these posting. I have written a quick guide on how to Update your phone. It might be on page 3 or 4.
Here is the link of the programs you need to upgrade your phone.
I have had this phone for around 3 months now.
There are 2 bad points about it.
1) the size (Mind you I did buy it with my eyes open, but the size gets bigger on you with every passing moment, and the new tiny phones comeing out)
2) The need for this phone to reset to "Improve Performance" while I am in a call.
Apart from that this phone is perfect for everything, from business to personal, the only sad thing is the lack of carrying cases made for the P990i...
Move over Rover, man has a new best friend...
The flash memory card you imply seem to me is incompatible with the P990i. P990i uses Sony Memory Stick up to 4GB Max. It is different then SD Card (Secure Digital Memory Card) or perhaps your wording is incorrect.
Anyway, if you are using Sony Memory Stick, then here is what you can to do. First make sure all your images and audio files you have are compatible with the P990i.
Here are some of the media file extensions that is compatible with the P990i.
****** Part 1*******
Assuming you have a Multi-Memory Cards reader.
- Insert the Memory Stick to card reader.
- Create a temporary folder anywhere on Computer.
- Copy everything from the Memory Stick to that folder.
- Take your Memory Stick out of card reader
- Then put the memory stick into phone.
- With Flip Open go to > Main Menu > Tools > File manager
- Click on the tab with a picture of a flash memory card in front of a yellow folder locate under the word “File manager”.
- Click on “File Manager” (Locate on top screen) > Device > select Format Memory Stick.
- Once the format process completed. Exit everything and take your Memory Stick out of your phone.
***Note: After you’ve use the phone to format the Memory Stick it will, by default, create a series of folders as follow:
- Now insert your Memory Stick into the card reader and move any files you want to the appropriate folder on the Memory Stick.
That it, once you are done just reinsert the Memory Stick back into the phone and you can see everything on it using “File Manager”
Now if you don’t have a card reader then you must have your phone connected to the PC using a USB data cable and the P990i PC Suite Utility installed on you PC. (It come with the Phone on a CD.) This will enable you to transfer all files between your phone and PC.
Once you have install the PC Suite Utility you will be able to browse the phone files structures just as if you would on any CD-ROM or Harddrive using “Windows Explorer”
Hope everything work out ok!

Hi, I read all the specifications of P990i and its my No. 1 choice, however there is 1 problem that I want to clarify, can I send and receive faxes through my GSM number? thanks a lot.
What you said made sense. But the thing is I use MAC so all the things I download on my phone are through Bluetooth & they go directly to my Mem. Card. There are no themes on my Phone Memory as I've deleted some of 'em.
I tried to download the theme I was trying to download on my phone & it worked (without me having to delete stuff)
My theory is when you download the themes using your phone it goes directly to your phone memory not the memory stick by default. Even if you place the themes on the memory stick and load it using the phone it will also load it into the phone internal memory. Eventually it will fill up the phone internal memory. I think what you can try is deleting some of the themes from phone memory and load only the ones you wanted. I have tried on mine and it seem to load the theme to the internal memory of the phone only.
Plannin to buy 990i need some basic info on apps like notes and pdf/doc viewer.
I basically need to view some ms doc files and pdf files when i'm the move for my official work.
Also I maintain lot of txt files on my usb disk like support steps and other notes.
My question is if i have 4gb card and store all my txt files from my pc to phone will i be able to open/edit these files on phone. also what abt msword files can i have .doc viewer. i know pdf+ is inbuilt but what is the max file size anyone has tried opening for pdf file.
Hope to use this pda for business use so my urgent doc/txt/pdf files for tech support are available.
Also what is current price in india and what is warranty period provided.
Any help/insight on this will be appreciated.
