As a fully experienced Sony P-series owner i have to point out a few items. The p990 works slower then every other P-series. Has multiple software problems and restarts out of the blue. I have used all p-series manufactured in history and have never experienced these problems before. Now the good part: firmware upgrades wil be available at your service points most probably.So don't be afraid, the phone is still the best around and has all the connectivity this world has to offer.

Hi everyone, I just install the SE PC Suite but it kept saying "Unable to load configuration" everytime I start the program with my Windows XP Pro. Same thing happened with my M600 SE before. Any idea??? Thanks in advance.

Thanks a ton the_gooze! Hey dude, where u frm? Im frm india, delhi. I m planning to buy a new mobile frm quite a long time, however i can not find the one of my type. I want the one which has the sound quality like w series, can b more better, same head phones. Further i want the large screen with gud camera as well. Something like, just enlarge the screen of w810i. PLZ REPLY....!!
hi mjr thx for your reply. I am too am from oz (melbourne). waiting desperately for p990i. do u think the one we get at october end would be the final version firmware or one with the bugs?
Ive been told by optus in sydney they should have it buy the end of october. the sony reps are carrying them around its just a matter of when the networks approve them.
guys, pleeez be honest.. is its loud speaker as good as p910 when playing music... would really appreciate the feedback
Loks like a GREAT Smart phone... the vidoe capture is it in 3GP or MPEG?
No, the earphones are not like the W series and are quite big if you have small ears like me!
Sound from them is not too bad but the phone speaker is pretty poor and quite muddy. Not too clear at all.
I'm on my second 990 and thinking about sending it back as it does keep hanging from time to time. Such a shame as it is a very good phone when it works well. The annoying thing is that the programs don't close when you use the back key. You have to go to the manager and close them from there. Bit of a pain really. Surely SE could have come up with a better idea than that.
What's next to try. This is my 5th different phone in 2 months.
hey guys... howz the sound quality of this phone? is it better than w series? is the shape of handsfree (ear phone) same as w series or are the ear buds big one? plzzzz reply asap....!!
SE have released this phone 6 months too
late.In 6 months time there will be an
upgraded version with 3 Megapixel camera,
HSDPA (3.5g)and probably get rid of the
Qwerty key pad.The keys are just too small
and too close together.
The Processor is slow,it hangs,it freezes
and the battery sucks.
SE you can do better than this.
i own the p 990 its good but se should have come out with this one few months after they announced it and by now they should have announced the next p series specs like n 95 gps 5mp this now looks outdated but i am sticking to this one i just love the touchscreen and qwerty which n 95 lacks

No dear, "CXC162037 R4B001" is not the latest version, this is too old. The new version prevent the crash of the explorer and free the memory without rebooting.
The latest version is "CXC 162037 R7A001".
Try updating your phone, follow the instructions posted below.
