hi every body...
please help me....do you know how can i update the firmware of p990?? and exactly how's the proccess ??
should i get the service from the SE site ??
anyone can advice. this P990, the syncronize the data like pocket PC? means there will automatic syncronize all data like excel, word etc file. automatic add or deleted if u done something in PC.. now I m using palm treo650. it can't make it for add file, I had to ge to a program to manual add in for next syncronize..
just got rid of my p990. It was too big and cumbersome and was too unreliable. I could never count on it staying on for long enough to receive important calls. so i went back to Vodafone and switched it for a Samsung d900, which i'm thoroughly pleased with. It is a much better phone all round. I did like the features of the p990 but its bulk and the fact that it used too much battery, crashed a lot, was very slow and frustrating annoyed me. also the texting on the phone is not entirely intuitive and could not be used without looking at the screen all the time.
Hi I read your opinion the reason why I am sending you this mail. I've got the P990 and email works like charm just to let you know its only support POP3/IMAP4 and you can also download blackberry conect from
and it works fine again only support POP3/IMAP4 so I don't knw what server are you using. Regarding the Casing i must say it's much better than P900/P910i
Download Blackberry Connect From Here
*Only supports Firmware R7A001
Hi Guys if you want Blackberry Connect for your P990i here's the link but make sure your handset must have latest firmware R7A001 either go into
There are 2 ways to install one through your computer if you're using PC Suite or copy the sis file into your Memory Stick and go into Menu>ControlPanel>Other>Insall select memory stick and click on the application and it will download the application into your handset. But make sure you have Blackberry BES APN active on your sim card contact your service provider in UK Orange won't charge you anything extra just call them and say to them add Blackberry Apn and they'll do the FOC and for Orange Users go onto www.blackberry.orange.co.uk and register your account and start using blackberry for o2 users they might charge you adding blackberry apn's (I don't know know about vodafone/3G/t-mobile) but for o2 go onto www.o2email.co.uk register your device.
P.S. I've tried the Blackberry software on firmware R7A001 and it worked like charm.
Any queries you can contact me on my email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will more than happy to answer all you questions
Hi I bought my P990i 2 weeks ago from Carphone Warehouse and I must say its excellent. I was reading few opinion regarding restart/freezing issues. So just to let you know those are not the faults and I will tell you why the phone restart when you press anykey during a call.
If you've taken off the front keypad and if you switched on your handset and you want to make a phone call and you went straight into your phone book and e.g select a number in which you've to select more option as soon the call go through e.g Access Numbers or Bank Number and as soon you press any key from your qwerty keypad the phone will restart (its not a fault) reason why its doing that coz phone is on PDA mode to change it on phone mode as soon you restart your phone go straight into manual dial (Phone Icon) and come out and now try the same thing it won't restart or during the call touch the keypad on the screen and then select the option from qwerty keypad I hope that'll answer your query about phone restart.
2nd sometime when you switched off the handset it will restart automatically with sound of click. There are 2 ways to stop that 1st disable the Flight Mode go into menu>controlPanel>Device>FlightMode and untick the option or you want flight mode and if you're using handset without front keypad when ever you switch off your handset instead of press scroll or pressing ENTER key from keyboard just Tap the option Phone Off and phone will off and won't restart automatically. But if you press the ENTER key from the keypad or press scroll as soon the turn off the handset it will restart. Just to let you know I've tried above 2 things in 10 different handsets (P990i) as few of friends got it and my cousin works in Phone Shop so I can confirm its not a fault doesn't matter if the Phone made in France or any where else.
The other few reason phone restarting if too many applications open at the same time.
P990i no doubt good looking phone PDA.BUT with all negative openion - I am not buying it soon. Wait till one come in market fault free.
i just purchase P990. i tried to search games but i cannt able to find it. Kindly help me in this.......
I've never commented on this website before, and nor have I ever known this website existed until yesterday... I've been doing numerous research on the SE P990 and I've seen so many negative reviews about it. It got to the point where I actually didnít want to buy it anymore and considered many other phones. Anyway I finally got the phone today even though my gut feeling told me no.
Well I have to say, I really like it, at first it didnít really appeal to me, with the numerical keypad, and the interface wasnít well develop. After reading the manual and finding out it lets you have the option of keeping the keypad or taking it off. I sprung to action and took off that part. Have to say, Itís a beauty without it. Interface is okay, Better then the 650 treo and 700. Overall I'm glad I made the right choice. I havenít experience any bugs yet, sometimes it lags, and the opera browser isnít that great. But all in all it doest the job while offering a bundle of things, I say if you are already thinking of getting this phone then what are you waiting for!
p.s. Guys can anyone tell me if there is anyway to put your task as a desktop wallpaper, or show your task that you need done there.
Well, after three handsets I've decided to give up on the 990i. Maybe if the software/firmware improves then maybe I'll look again in a month or two.
Good luck guys.
I ordered my p990i from orange uk, its going to be delivered tomorrow, i will let you guys know as soon as a open it
Please asisst, Is it possible to take notes on the handset and later move them to P.C? Does the handset come with USB cable in the box? for how long can the handset voice record for and can it be used as a dictaphone?
Just received my P990i - so far so good, transferred my contact & message data from P900 using bluetooth, so no problems with restore function.
But can someone explain why the browser (opera)does not give the same functionality as the Opera browser which could be used on the P900 ? - very dissapointed in the embedded browser on P990i - and you cannot upload the current mobile version from Opera - or at least you can download but it will not install !!
Finally does anyone know how to get rid of the embedded bookmarks, as teh only way to establish a home page is to get it to the top of the bookmark list
hey thats so really great to update the soft ware bt now what abt the prices there is a great gap between prices so please wt is the different between them and what is the real prices because here in egypt is too expensive guide me please
Has anyone got a P990i from UK Orange yet?
Would love 2 hear feedback, thanks!
I have been using the p910i for a long time,and was very eager to try out the p990.after reading the negative comments about the phone i had second thoughts,but better sense preveiled and today i am the proud owner of the p990.it is true the p990 is slower in the beginning,and it is quite coomon to get disappointed with it,but however after having an upgrade from their site directly it is not that bad and is quite fast. the phone as it is far ore advanced than the p910i,except for the sound which was the envy of Nokia users,is missing in the p990.i dont say it is bad,but it is not as good as th p910i,.as for the rest of the functions and the usage ...........im lovin it.........So dont bother about the negative talk guys.beg,buy,or borrow tha p990 and enjoy.im sure u wouldnt be dissapointed with it.but dont forget to upgrade,hardly takes 2 hours,and u can do it yourself,and is free.you can find the upgrade in the support section of their official site.www.sonyericsson.com.hope this helped those confused souls(like me).
