i would go for p990i. One of my friend has a O2 mobile and she says it sucks big time. P990i with updated firmware in a safe bet. Also SE R&D team is looking forward to release an even better firmware for p990i. With all that into consideration and looking at brand value of SE phones, i reckon i too would get a p990i very soon. SE knows they cant disappoint customers in such a tight and competitive market place. They obviously know their short-comings and i am pretty sure they would stand up to the ocassion as they have through their previous P-series releases. P990i has all the good features you could expect in a smart phone. Also as many users have suggested, its important how you use your mobile, rather than having many applications open at the same time, which eventually eats up a lot of RAM. I guess we should be smart users rather than heavy users.
Hope all of you find this appropriate.
hi every one! i have a question, how is the message memory? how many messages it can store in inbox??
go to vodafone they are not branding there P990i my cell had no branding at all
its so damm confusing, whether i shld buy p990i or wait for the next P-series.
I hv updated the firmware on my p990i using the sony update service, followed the instructions on the sony ericsson site.. and managed to update the firmware in around 15-20 mins.
The current status on my fone shows..
Phone: CXC162037 R7A001
Bluetooth: CXC162058 R4F01
Organiser: CXC162036 R3B01
CDA: CDA162007/2 R3B01
Its obvious for sum ppl to be paranoid over the fones.. performance.
But dudes.. this is a hand held fone not a computer. I dont think that any other smart fone wiht touch screen is up-todate or perfect.. neither HP... nor dopod.. not even O2.
Every other model in this category has sum or the other pb.
I hv been using this fone since one week now.. wiht a lot of things installed.. hv loaded lots of music video clips on my 2GB scandisk card.. yet i dont find the fone to be pain in the a$$.
Using it sensibly works like charm.
There r sum ram issues.. i do agree.. but then we hv to wait.. i am sure that sony R&D team is doing its best to tackle this issue. I also hope that whatever they comeup wiht.. is taken care in the software... not in the hardware. Cos lots of ppl hv already accuired it like me.. and we cant go out to sell this one and get a new fone.
Anyways.. off the topic. anyone can recommend me sum good sites for p990i goodies.. like themes.. or other interesting applications!! Very Happy
Hi guys.. i am trying to lock files/folders on my p990i using FileLock.. got that from getjar.
My objective is to keep sum files and folders private.. within behind passwords.
But its a real time pain.. each time i try to lock a file.. it keep on repeating for MIDlet Premission Request atlesat 4-5 times each for each file.
I get the msg.
MIDlet Premission Request
Yes this time only
No, not at this time
Even if i opt for Yes this time only... then also it keeps on asking me again and again atleast 4-5 times.
Is there a way out to set Yes option in default... so that it accepts all without any prompt.
Anyone knows any better application.
Please let us know when you are able to completely flash the P990i to remove the branding software, and how you did it.
I have just ordered the P990i from on Orange, and it should arrive next week. I am keen to restore the OS to how SE intended it to be!
I hope flashing it doesn't invalidate the warranty/insurance. I'm considering getting Orange Care insurance as I am worried this phone may be a bit delicate. If I do get the phone replaced, Orange would exchange my existing handset for a new one - but would they check the OS to see if I'd tampered with it by removing the branding?
I have the P990i and it is the best cell on the market no problems at all well done sony you made a great one
Ive got one at last!!! O2 (the stupid idiots) have lost me as a customer and I signed up with Orange today and I got the p990 for free!! I will feedback when I've used it for a bit!!!
Hi Guys! I had a P900 which never gave any trouble and made me a big fan of Sony in terms of it's features. I know want to buy P990i but am confused about it's reliability vis a vis the HP 6828 and Imate K-Jam/Jamin.
Any Suggestions from satisfied users
Hey,buddy.. ask you guys some question, two mounth ago, i bought p990i ,but the phone is often self restart, why ??
now, i need to buy the new one,what can you guys recomaded to me,which the phone is nice to use?
Mr doodlehead, I agree with all what u said.
I think P 990 is a pretty disappointed . the problem is coming from symbian os V 9.1...
I think symbian will solve these problems in the next SE p series
mate how much did you pay for swiss manager pro? Can we install 3rd party tools like such in our P990i...wouldnt it affect the performance or the vanilla product we have?
I think this fone is awesome. I just got mine yesterday.
Updated the firmware. And most of the resource problems are at bay. except if u dont use it sensibly.
read read and read.. thru verious resources on the web.. before u start using the fone.
Well i am looking for a folder locking software for this fone. ANyone got any idea on it. Anyways i got one. but that one seems very irritating. the midlet prompt keeps on popping up again and again while locking an individual file. or folder.. Anways it can be set default to accept all midlets!!
