For those who want to know should they wait the answer is yes. The firmware is terrible with constant crashes, freezes and confusing actions. The phone also locks and can only be switched off by pulling battery. A firmware update is mentioned. Where is it? If it could deliver to specification it would be great. Meanwhile: stay with 910 or other.
Just got this phone direct from SE USA yesterday. Arrived with FW R7a. Phone is actually more compact than I thought it would be. Other than some memory management issues, phone is superb.
Could someone please tell me. Are "fireware updates" the same as the "updated" which is in the P990 smartphone PC application software.
If so, mine is uptodate.
If firmware is different to this, where can I get "firmware updates" from please
Can sony ericsson tell what actually is the processor speed of P990 when we compare it with JAS JAM PDA phone and other phones similar to it?
Hmm, the phone is lovely when it works. Unfortunately that is not often.
Erratic performance, slow and inexplicably unable to close a program out of memory when you have finished with it (unless you install swiss manager).
The battery life is ridiculous, It lasts about a day if I am lucky.
Having been a p900 and p910 owner I am terribly disappointed with this phone.
Sort out the buggy software and make sure the battery lasts and I will get another one, but mine has gone back to Vodafone in shame.
Hi all, It's a great phone but I found some mistakes:
- you cannot set a ring tone for a group of contacts, you should do it for each contact individually.
- you cannot set username and password for the proxy server to access internet using WLAN if the proxy needs authentication.
please can i use 4 gigabyte memory card for my p990i?

Hi i was wondering if anyone knows how to set the screensaver to be the showing the TIME. I was using the P910i before and the TIME(CLOCK) will appear once it goes on the blank screen mode. Pls do let me know if anyone know. Thanks.
Sony ericsson P990i is a great phone and it has a high speed internet browsing, unlike any other phone, but there is a default in it which is when I had the synchronization Program for the emails(active sync) some times it hangs. But still is a great phone.
I was going to go out and buy one but decided to wait after my friend bought one. He has the Chinese Version of the P990i and it is full of bugs. I do not want the Chinese verison of the P990i but heard from another friend that is the same and is filled with bugs. I will hold off till the bugs are filtered out of this device.I would give it another 2 months before the old stock is filetered out of the market.
to ravi & other persons ,,,i am in the proceess of bluetoothing my fav vids fron my n80 to p990i & its delivered to the mssge inbox..Anyway somtimes if you do to many they stack up somwere else in the fone out of site till you get the vids transfered to the mem card to free up fone memory then they start appearing one by one in the mssge inbox to be transfered to memory card.WAT happens sometimes tho is these stacked up videos or any other data dont d/load after freeing up fone memory space & clog up fone memory so wen you go to task manager there is nowt selected but wen you got to storage wizard ive only got 4mb spare so out of memory actions occur & you have to force the vids etc to get downloaded to the mssga inbox ....SO in essence if you get out of memory mssges look at your storage wizard to see how much fone memory is left because this cud cause out of memory probs as its done with me if naturally your fone memory is low.This sounds complicated but thats wats been happening to me..Wen im blutoothing over my data its done ticking each vid to transfer so i dont really know how many mb are getting sent BUT were the other vids hide till i empty the mssge inbox is beyond me ???Brill fone using 4gb sandisk card
to turn the backlit of during charging- control panel- desplay- then select auto for both of the options (handheld and car)
