oK, IM IN DAY 6 WITH MY NEW P990, HERE IS THE DEAL. Phone has major software problems, keeps saying not enough memory and I have to restart. Furthermore its much slower then the P910i and next to that batery life is incredible low. For the first time in my life with the P-series i was unreachable due to finished up batery yesterday, was a disaster. Screen resolution is still impressive. I have already ordered another one (second)and am hoping that it has the newest firmware and not r4b001. To be frankly i would wait buying the phone if it has the r4b001 firmware.
I just bought SE P9901, goodness i am so disappointed, everything is configured to SINGAPORE TIME ZONE and i cant get rid of the Zone name to change. The phone is so unstable, an alert with KERN keeps coming up. The contact set ringtone doesnt work, it keeps going to a default ringtone and what is worse it is a different ringtone. IT IS SO UNSTABLE unlike 910. I am an ardent SE user and really hope they upgrade the firmware FAST !!!
alil pissed they shrunk the screen down and put the keyboard on the actual handset. other then that alot of upgrades from the P900/P910
So is BST-33 a better one or BST-34??
Can you please comment on this.
yeah i got that BST-33 here in the US too, and i was mad at first when i got my fone coz i thought the seller had changed the battery, but reading this now i know it was SE that changed it.
SE has changed the battery (in europe at least) P990i is now beeing delivered with the 950mAh BST-33 imstead of the more powerful BST-34.
this is a very nice phone but i would like see a SE phone with temterature, measure, etc, converte.
51459 - thanks for the advice, but my p990i is ok,the main issue im facing is the uploading my p910i files thru the p990i pc suite. i have sooooo much data on my p910i that it will take eons to tranfer bit by bit- i need some software or at least confirmations that the files are incompatible...help somebody!
In my old version of this phone the calender was brill as you cud colour code diff jobs so at a glance you knew what was what. But I dont think the new phone can do this does anyone know an answer .Is that clear a wk to view had colour segs for diff tasks
20990i-i strongly recommend you flash the firmware. Just download the update service from SE web site.
Jim, thanks for your response. Yes, I tried from CD and the one from SE web site (PC_Suite_for_Smartphones_1.2.15.exe) but same result. I even unstalled my Nokia PC Suite as well but no love. Now I'm working on my large contacts and about gonna start crying.. lol. Anyhow, any thoughts will be welcome.
Question: I have heard that PDA phones are very slow. Is this true? How much RAM and memory is enough for standard usage(non multimedia and gaming)? What operating system is optimal for smartphones? How would this P990 compare with Palm Treo 650 and Nokia E61 and SAMsung I320?
does any one know how i can back-up my SE P910i files into my P990i? the Back up manager for P990 has refused to accept or evn recogize the P910i files...help somebody!
i have a problem with my sony ericsson, it start to hang some of the program and also loose some of the programe, which live no option of using it. i love my phone can you advise what went wrong and what can be done to revive it as is my passion to own it.
can anyone help? when i am on the web browser how do i save a pic or page to the p990i memory stick? thanks...
What the size of the display is? 2.4" or more? And is there a tv-out? 10x
51459 try downloading the latest version of SE PC suite from the SE site the latest version is 1.2.15..hope this helps
Cxc162058r4f01 is not latest firmware and that's what i had when the phone came. i just flashed mine, this is what i got CXC162037R7A001.
my old firmware worked fine but hang once, so i decided to flash it even i knew it was not gonna be the final perfect version by what i heard out there.
now, it seems to be slightly faster than b4 but i need to play with it more plus a overnight charging it just to say for sure.
i do agree my e61 and my p910i were a bit faster, again hopefully there will be a final perfect firmware for this hot pda phone soon. now, i'm still facing the SE PC suite problems....
