how did u update ur firmware cos i cant do that i ahve tried to install it several times but i get latest sotware installed already,also i unistalled it and downloaded 4m SEUS and i'm still geting the same message.i'm in the uk
Ravi, where did you download the R9?
Thanks, appreciate the help.
the yellow message box still enlarges in flip closed mode for me even after the R9 update.
Also please can any1 tell me how do u play videos that are not taken by the phone camera.do we have to install some media player or something so that the videos could play..can plz any1 help?
Screen area is short compare to p910i.
The keypad just bellow the screen is not comfotable to type the msg with the hand, compare to that one in p910i.
One more concern of worry is battery back up compare to this nokia set have longer battery back up.
Just go through my suggestion and comments
Thanks and regards
yes, i have noticed that, and i think its better now, because when it did enlarge it would be blurry and all that stuff, now its better. the whole screen thing to me looks like its Hi Def, seriously
to the person who wants to know about the firmware:
yes, there is a way to go to an older firmware if you want to, but its not goin to be as easy as updating it, if you need to, jus e-mail me and ill email u the steps.
and for your second question. Thats what i thought at first, but after i asked my relative who works at Sony Ericsson in London, said that there is no difference at all. and after i did a little more diggin into it, i found out that he is right. back to your first question, why would you want to go to an older firmware, the R9E is like a whole different phone, no hangup, no restarts no nothin. its a lot better than the R7A, im out. hi me up if you have any more questions. my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
Well I got 2 things to say:
First the picture shown there is a really bad picture made with photoshop (I think that who did it used paint!) that with a simple view you may see it is made by someone, just see the keyboard, it can see that they just cutted the keyboard and pasted on the flip, well and see that it even says P990!!!
Second and last thing I want to say is that the R9 is really really good, I worked with it and I opened applicatons simultaneously and they worked well with no problem, and yes Vince the Animation of the flip closed mode dissappeared, but it is better since the icons looked like pixeled when the animation in flip close mode was available. Also I have nodded that some applications are acting kind of weird in my case they are AED (Advanced English Dictionary) and World Factbook from jdictionary-mobile, they just hang and they don't work until about 5 mins. that it appears loading. Maybe I installed this applications badly so I'm going to try to install them again.
Also, the videos are playing as you opened them, that is great! Also the screen is better and the Camera has also got some improvements. At the end the R9 firmware is excellent.
I just got a great problem when trying to install the firmware with SEUS (Sony Ericsson Update Service) since it downloaded the firmware and when installing it installed just some percent and then the program just closed, I tryed to install it like 20+ times, but until I got it installed! Upgrade your Firmware it is great!
about the R9 firmware, has anyone noticed that in flip closed mode, the menu in no longer animated? like when you scroll to messages, the yellow envelope does not enlarge?
just one more ques mike, if you flash your phone with lets r9 firmware is there any way to get back the old firmware?and is it better to wait till it the company releases the phones with the latest firmware like now the august 2006 batch is going on so is it worth waiting for the next batch or buy aug 2006 batch and update the firmware?thanks.
to the person who wants to know if the picture is real or not:
that is one of the fakest pics ive ever seen in my life. like there shouldnt be any debates over it. someone used photoshop. and even if it was real, why the F*** would Sony Ericsson do somethin like that? thats the most retarted thing ive ever seen. plus a waist of money. im a happy P990 user since Aug. and specially after i downloaded the R9E firmware. but the scroll thing is really fast now for some reason.
can someone pls tell me this image is it fake or this next p series is upcoming?
Some countries have been given the R9 update, a few others have not... The case goes to my country here in Asia, we do not have access yet to the R9 FW upgrade... I guess that explains why people would be prompted that they have the latest software installed already... Now the wait begins :)
to back-up messages: use the Backup Manager in your PC Suite
