dr a with all due respect just bcs you had problems with this model does not mean that every phone will have problems i have this phone for 2 weeks now and working flawless even the batt life is good no hanging nothing just too good much better than the 910 even qwerty keyboard wise.
Well, totally disappointed with this mobile. My first impressions were good but this is now my 2nd handset in two weeks and unfortunately I'm going to have to change again as this one is still crashing, unable to text properly, bluetooth connection cuts out etc etc etc. Vodafone told me that it's the handset problem and nothing to do with their network. I really need a pda mobile and waited months for this P990i to come out but now regret it. I have to choose a different smartphone now and I'm not sure which make and model to go for. This has put me off Sony Ericsson and I will not be recommending this phone to anyone. Don't waste your money. Loads of problems with this mobile.
Hi, Anybody know can I use the Igo navigation system with this phone? I know I need a gps too.
which phone is better O2 Orbit XDA or SE P990? does anyone knows how fast SE P990's processor?? thanks
Yepp. i got got this phone 3 days ago. it will automattly restart too.. the phone is nice, but battery so shrot, need to chager 1 and half day.. not as good as i thought la.. but all the function is nice.. and.. i am thinking should i change to this to the N73??
It seem O2 UK are now giving a release date of Sunday 15th October. Very weird I suspect this date will change again as previous date given to me were always on a monday. Carphonewarehouse have this phone ona new contract but not on an 02 Upgrade. I dont get this at all. Has vodafone got an exclusise on this handest in the UK. As o2 seem to be dragging there feet. Are the any other problems that vodafone have overlooked which o2 want fixing. It al seems to weird for me and avery strange way to trade there products. Any vodafone UK customer pleased with there new P990i's ? Or is it just fullof bugs ? If not why is O2 delaying this handset further......
SE 990i has totally destroyed my opnion of SE.There r so many trail version sets n market ,full of bugs ad firmware as old as Dec 05.SE has dumpped those old dummies to sell ad we r the Crunch.In future i bet to buy a new model at least six months afterA lesson for all of u Guys----------
perhaps one glaring thing that most users of a pda/smartphone would encounter from time to time is that it sometimes resets itself. this is no different from an O2, nokia, treo and hp-ipaq. when i was using either one of these makes in the past, constant stalling, reseting, hanging, slowing down and blanking itself off when the keypad inputing became too fast, heavy; all due to a tanglement in the steps logic gates algorithm.
some friends have also spoken about this characteristic from the new generation of mobiles. basically, its the software that controls the smartphone and more less frequent than not is the occasional inconvience of being told by a dialog box that something is amiss. in the worst, a temporary shutdown is the mobile's way of telling us that the workload has exceeded its specified operating capacity.
in the case of the P990i, which i have been using in the last three and a half weeks, it is far from perfect but its still a good work tool ranking top amongst the front runners today. thus far, i have found the 990 to be reliable and dependable at all times. furthermore, its easy to get about the features and a joy to use.
The function is not quite good and it is occassionally error. Compare to P910i the P990 just fascinate by the style but the sound and function P910i more beter.
Yesterday I have read a forum from Indonesia. An information that in Indonesia there are 2 version of P990, one is worldwide version (no bugs but doesn't have
chinese character) and the other one is Singapore version (many bugs but has Chinese character). Our friend there has tried by himself. If you understand Indonesian, you can open www.forumponsel.com and then choose forum sonyericsson.
To our friends who find so many problems,do you live in Singapore?
May better now (for all P990 users),if you share here, you can tell in which country you buy and the number code.
why always restart and said to better performance.
What the cause of this problem.
Sometimes its stack and it like it can't press power off button.
Olidenali, hello thanks for helping me out but it did not work on my phone. I mean the trick that you did, I also tried it. Removed the battery and sim for 15 seconds and when I turned my phone again I did not get a DELETE OPTION. It just prompted again power on or flight mode. :( I read my manual but it doesn't mentioned anything about how to turn on the phone automatically. Anyway, thanks again
Ladha hi, yes you can hide the shortcut keys when your flip is closed. Sorry I just forgot how to do it since I already removed my flip. Now what I only see on my screen is my wallpaper and the service provider. Read your manual :)
HI Ihave my pa990i for a 5 days and im so disapointed,its sooo slow,I cant set up agilemesenger its too complicated,when i try to add contacts to the sim card it goes until the 134th contact and it stops....!!!!

Hey JUSTONE, the p990 is available on O2, just check "carphonewarehouse"
i called 02 UK today and wonderful news the release date has AGAIN been changed for O2 to October 15th. Yes that is this year but rumours are it may be delayed to 2047 due to techincal difficulties.
what a waste..
Hi Guys. I am planning to buy SE P990i and i need to know if it is worth buying? I stay in Australia, and it costs around 1000 AUD here. I just want to know if its worth the investment. Thankyou.
for SE P990i you can only use touch screen when flip is open or removed. This is from the manual please check.
