Dissapointing effort from S.E.Even after software updates it's still not running as well as my old p910.Processor is slow and the applications are not nearly as good as the windows mobiles 5 range.S.E. are miles behind in the pda market.The HTC universal belongs in a different planet and that was released a YEAR ago!Ebay here I come.
I just updated my phone and now I have the following:
Phone: CXC162037 R4b001
Whats the CCPU HELL NI?
anybody experiencing this or know what this is?? please post.
Bluetooth: CXC162058 R4F01
Organizer: CXC162036 R3B01
CDA: CDA162007/2 R3B01
Personally, i am a phone collector, and my experiences with p990 werent so great. When i bought the phone, i loved it in the first couple of weeks, but after a while the phone started to get out of the control. All of a sudden the phone would freeze and shut off itself. Phone lags sometimes, Vijay Singh game takes forever to load and my main problem was the battery. THE BATTERY i duno wut happened. In the beginning i wouldnt have to charge my phone for days, but recently the battery would die out in less than 1 day. I also replaced the main battery twice with new batteries, but after a while same problem occured.
I sold this phone and went back to w900 and sharp 903sh. More reliable and capable of doing what you want.
Please , any body can help me , and tell me how i can sync my P990 to the PC , I tried several times , and also i downloaded the latest software from the SE site , but still.
When I bought the P990i (after such a long wait) start from day one, this phone gave me a lot of problem, it simply start and tell you this is to improve the performance. I compalinted to SE Malaysia, and they told me to have the software "Refreshed". BUT the same problem persits, I again called SE Malaysia, and they told me that there should not happen, and advised me to get the phone sent back to their service center to upgrade the software again. Kindly advise me which version of software should be the so called "upgraded softawre" for my P9901 chinese version. It is so disappointed with this phone, SE MUST do something quick to solve this persisting problem, or otherwise it is very unfair to thise who purchases this phone
Can someone explain to me why if there really is a software upgrade for the P990 that fixes so many issues, why is this not all over the news media and blog pages, such as Engadget, News.com etc? Surely SE would want the negative talk about the P990 to be countered? They must be desperate to move these puppies as I was finally offered a FREE P990 on Vodafone the other day for a not too costly contract - the week before, they wanted at least £60 for it. So, is this software upgrade for real, or someone smart at SE trying to fool us into making a purchase using dubious gorilla marketing?
i 've purchased this phone only a week before and i am experiencing too many problems like the phone hanging up and restarting by itself telling that "phone restarting to improve its perfomance". what the hell does it mean?!!. this happens almost 10times a day. i have sent an email a couple of times but no reply. can anyone help me. also i wanted to know just 'cause of the competition with nokia why SE have to launch unstable phones like this which 'll spoil the whole impression on their products. waitin for a solution?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

This is the best PDA phone jam packed with inovative features. Very good portable size with incredible long battery life. I am Treo 650 envy the P990, ready to switch over, but main big worry is the bad reports of operation constantly hang. Have the problem fixed. Thanks.
mate, thanx a lot. Your article was a good one. Just a few questions. Wats the maximum memory card we can use in P990i? Is it 2Gb or 4Gb? If its 4 Gb does it work effectively in p990i? Also can we install the softwares which are available from sony ericsson wesite? for example - worldmate light, etc?? But these are also third party applications right..for eg...handysafe...etc etc....Also what is the battery life after upgrading to the most current firmware. Can some1 please answer these questions..appreciated...thankyou guys...
i will try my best to answer some of your questions.
first, you may be interested to learn i posted some things on 2006-09-25 13:06 TRK2 (around page 9). at that time i was still using the given/installed software upon purchase. like most other users here, i was also quite surprised at the way the P990i was behaving. then again, my previous mobile to this, nokia's N71 was no better. in the latter, countless software problems like hanging, stalling, shutting itself off periodically were also experienced. i sent the 71 for software upgrade and changing of some hardware parts, but the faults persisted. 71 was only in use for 3 months. i sold it later.
for the P990i, i realized that its performance has improved greatly after the software update. as one other user have pointed out, the web browser download speed is wonderfully fast. its true, a 22-page site may only take about 2-3 secs (results vary at certain times of the day; this is to be expected).
furthermore, this model is also supported by excellent programmes from SE that can be bought (see applications. you still can't find this service from other manufacturers. one thing i should also add here is that i been advised NOT TO download any third-party software onto the P990i. reason is SE is an independent maker and any external software may cause it to hang. i even use its original 4G memory stick. a bit expensive, yes, but a dealer told me that the cheaper kingston can sometimes jam the cell phone. best to spend a little bit more now than to find your phone in deep trouble later.
lastly, i am in agreement with what many users have posted recently. the latest software upgrade can render your phone a great improvement. it feels so good to use, run through the easy-to-use functions, and be satisfied.
hope this is useful...
hi everybody i just got the phone 2 days ago.and i wanna share my experience with u guys. i'm in nz. i bought the phone from a import retailer.he told me there were many versionss,p990c chinese version, p990i european version with chinese support builtin , and p990i european without chinese support. cos i read some user opinion that chinese p990c got lots of bugs such as crashes frequently. so i decided to buy a p990i without chinese support instead. it turned out to be a perfect phone, no bugs at all on my phone. seldom crashes ! amazing! the disappointing thing is the battery is very short , 950 mhz, doesnt last long at all , i have to charge it everyday, while my treo650 and nokia n93 last 2 to 3 days.and the battery cover doesnt have a button to press and pull it out , so i have to pull it out use all my strength. very wierd!! it only weigh 140 gram with flip removed! really light as feather on my hand! while my treo and n93 weigh 180 grams, really heavy! the qwerty keyboard is really really small, even much smaller than my treo 650!! really a concern for big finger people! but , the tactile feedback of the keyboard is very good, i have to press hard every keys,i mean the quality of the keyboard is better compared to my treo650, which is wearing out gradually.i dont think p990 keyboard will wear out quickly, i will comment on this at a later time after i use it for a while more. the uiq 3 interface is beautiful compared to windows mobile 5.0, it's like compare windows xp and apple mac to windows 98, because uiq 3 use 3D dimention while windows 5.0 use 2D dimention. thats why uiq 3 is very slow compared to windows 5. i got to go , comment later.
I have had this phone for 5 days now and the
only problem I have had was when I tried to
to play the Vijay Singh Golf Pro Game the
phone switched itself off and then on again
to improve performance.Anyway as I do not use
the games on the phone,I have uninstalled
them.Otherwise I have had no other problems.
I did a software update on the first day I
had it,so I can't comment on the software
that was in it when I bought it.
I have also installed Blackberry Connect
which works very well.
It has not frozen on me at all.
Call quality is excellent and earpiece
volume is very loud.
Can the P990 synchronise the calander with a laptop via Wlan?
since u already have the p990i. how is it? any comments? would you strongly recommend it to other SE phone user? b4 and after software upgrade, what is the difference? would it freeze or hang like many of those that post their comments in this forum said it does? i am still holding out till asia.cnet review it.
