yes you do and you need to get the password of the establishment that is a wi-fi ready and after your p990 scan the available wifi go to connection and find the connection and enter the password
No, thats just wrong !!! A/B/G/N for wi-fi is an indicator of it's MAXIMUM speed. A/B can connect to G/N router, and G/N can connect to a A/B router. Whoever says otherwise does not know anything about routers or wi-fi. By the way my home router is N standard and my P990 connects to it.
ahh ok but how do i need to go to a hotspot where the wifi signal is b frequency?

Big_tj, 05 Apr 2010HELP!!
Does anyone know how to "flash" the p990i or to reset it to factory settin... moreYou need SEUS.
Go to the SonyEricsson web site and download 2 apps:
Update Service and PC Suite for smartphones.
Checkout if for the update there is still IE Sp2 and WinXP needed.
Does anyone know how to "flash" the p990i or to reset it to factory settings? My phone just stopped work and I feel its operating system might be infected.

let me refresh you on the wifi
once you enable your wifi and there is a podlock icon beside it you need the password from the owner of the wifi like for example starbucks coffee shops they have free wifi but you need the password and once you activate your wifi go back to the main page > menu> tools> connection > the wifi name with the padlock > tap it > tap the drop down and go to settings and enter the password and set it up to establishment hit save then go to your phone built in internet ..
if the wifi that you detected doesnt have a podlock its open and free you can just hit connect the two arrows below but its a first come first serve there is only a certain limit that a wifi can support..
if there is a star and no podlock beside the name of the icon its ok meaning your p990 already have the settings for that and its open and free no password needed just hit connect and once connected go to the built in browser of your mobile phone
i hope i answered your concern
if its still not working please leave a messsage here i will find the answer for you

WHAY A TOUCHSCREEN FEATURE IS A DISADVANTAGE??
the thing is guys that if you only have a touchscreen and you always use your fingers our hands and fingers sweat right and in a long run your screen will oxidate or in outher words the screen will blur and be damage permanently and you cant replace the screen that easily thats why having a seperate qwerty keyboard is the best thing it will minimize the damage ..
even if you have a stylus it will not prevent the damage that you can do to your screen specially if you dont have a seperate qwerty keyboard and if you dont have a very nice stylus..
solution is get a screen protector right.. but putting a screen protector will lessen the sensitivity of your touch screen so as a result you tend to tap your screen more putting more pressure on your screen that may end up to more damage hahahaha
so for me p990 resolved that issue long time ago by seperating your QWERTY keyboard..
and best advice to the people who have a touchscreen wheter its a resistive touchscreen of a captive touchscreen get a screen protector it will lessen the sensitivity but it will protect your screen from damage ..
now for the p990 users if you already have a screen protector go to TOOLS>CONTROL PANNEL> DEVICE> SOUND AND ALERTS>BUTTONS AND SCREEN>FLIPKEYPAD choose click>SCREEN TAP choose click> KEYBOARD choose click> SAVE..
the purpose of this is you will hear a click sound everytime you push any button on your phone so you dont need to click so hard both on your QWERTY keyboard and your screen because i know most of you are not so sure if you already pushed the right button and tends to presh more pressure both on the keyboard and the screen so you are unawware that you are damaging you phone, but if you do this yeah it will extract more battery life but its ok at least your not damaging you phone right hahahah hope i helped out guys..

sorry for the delayed reply..
for me it depends on what is your trip.. for me i like bulky phone and since the p990 is so thick 26mm compare to the rock e6 which is only 14mm i guess hahaha i dont want a thin phone .. if your looking for a PDA this is a good starter the p990 because this is a 3g phone you can put opera mini on this..
wi-fi ready so if you are in a mall that is wi-fi ready you can use this to browse and download for free music,games, video etc.. and the best feature for me is the program can read and download excel,word just an example i have a copy of my resume in my phone so eveerytime i want to find another job i can send it right away hahahahah so its really up to you for music its good not that great but good..
another thing guys we can use up to 8GB of memory on this already tested and guaranteed
so for me the p990 is best you cna compare it yourself motorola rock e6 vs p990
