I've had my P990i for about 2 weeks now, and I am VERY pleased with it. There are some short-comings here and there, but I was anticipating a very unstable phone due to all the posts here, and yet, I have had virtually no problems! No more than I had with my nokia anyway...
Download and install swiss manager pro, and USE it to keep your RAM cleared frequently, if you always keep your phone running in top shape - it will be reliable!
My biggest problem thus far has been Vodafone's branding - but hopefully I'll get it flashed to a generic firmware soon :)
Well I used to have a HP IPaq6310 which I managed to break. So after shopping around for a new smart phone I got an N80 - nice enough phone but terrible battery life @ 8 hrs! So swapped it in for a P990i. The first p990i crashed or froze and the screen had ‘noise’. Took it back and for another p990i, #2, this phone now 1 week old stopped synching with my pc. It seems to be a problem with the connector, if you hold in the connector on the base stand or usb cable it just makes a connection. Still crashes buy not as bad and p990i #1. So this phone is going back tomorrow. On a positive note the p990i is a useful tool and I do like using it as much as the old iPaq. I guess its a love hate relationship, its got well balanced features once you get used to the quirky interface is convenient to use. Question is:- Will I get p990oi #3 I take #2 back? I think yes and hopefully its 3rd time lucky!
the guyes who have face difficulties with p990i i can chanllenge them that for 1 month im using this fone but not a single problem i found with it. in a word excellent fone. if u know how to use a fone then it will performe better, if u dont then u will find difficulties in every steps. a mobile fone is a mobile fone ; if u play game for 24 hrs or randomly use it without any limit then certainly it will creat problem. so its up to dear users. & frankly speaking i havent yet found any sort of problem with my p990i. thanks SE for making such a cool pda @ zayeed !!!

I see one posting said the phone would not be available until Dec 4th and then not certain. It have been available here since Septermber 2006. I have had problems however.
I would say I'm luckly to have P990i without any problem at all. I think all units being sold in Saudi Arabia are working properly. Since I bought my unit, I have not encountered any problem. Before I switched to P990i, I owned P910i but P990i is far, far better than P910i.
I am already excited when the new P-series is coming out. SE should release their next P-series 2nd quarter of 2007 to compete with NOKIAS N95 to be released 1st quarter of 2007.
I think the best choice is wait for another P series. The p990 maybe just a pilot model for the new Simbian and UIQ versions. I was anticipating the release of this since last year but it's a little too short on performance. I would like to see a newer version with hard disk and gigabyte memory that can handle all the features that came with it... and also slimmer but have a bigger screen. Hope SE people is reading this.
Good luck to those who bought p990. I'm honestly drooling over the features I don't have on my P910... but at least I have no problem with this phone. I can wait a little longer... when the right P series comes out, i'll be the first in line on it's release.

P990 after 4months of launch it has lost 50% n price easily available at less 450us$.Why it is a disgrace on SE face.I personally caught a retuned set to dealer being sold as new with updated firmware n Dehli.There is fudamental conflict of software with hardware.All sets be honouralbly,recalled by SE otherwise each customer will be robbed by 1000-800 US$ eachwithout their fault.
hey anyone know when a new P series set is to be announced its abot time. I mean every set is announced after a year at 4Quarter?
Wanted to buy this phone but too much negative comments and not a single good one even some of my friends are in favour of P910. Any help will be appreciated.
can someone help me. i have installed by PC suit and the m-router can detect my phone, it was able to detect my memory card so i can transfer files but the problem is when i ran the PC suit software. it cannot detect my phone(USB is on Phone mode)...
I am wondering between SE P990 and Nokia E70. Any suggestions?
Moreover, can one use the VoIP over WLAN on SE P990, for example when in roaming.
Thanx for your advices
