My friend owns a P910 and he has exactly the same problem. I wish we can try this phone before buying it. The good news is the price is dropping dramatically.
you can download user manual for this phone here http://www.sonyericsson.com/spg.jsp?cc=za&lc=en&ver=4000&template=ps1_1_2_2&zone=ps&lm=ps1_1&pid=10336
I have the older p910i and love the phone features, however, my only real gripe i have with the phone, is the basic function of the machoine - the phone itself.
Might sound stange but let me put this comment into context. The phoen quality from my side (receiving end) is great and no problems. I do however have problems with people understanding me if i am in a very very slightly noisy environment (light background chatter) as the mic pics up way too much background noise and transmits this to the receiver of my call. This really needs to be solved and I hope has been addressed in the new p990.
I just considered buying the Sony K800 with 3 megapixel camera for my wife and discovered the same problem of hideous background noise for the receiver of the call although on the call making sony side was excellent sound and reception.
Try making a call from your phone to your frined who has a nokia (perhaps in the next room so you can easily swap mid call) and listen to the sound on your side, then you swap your sony for the nokia whilst still connected and listen to the sound that is transmitted to the Nokia by the sony by listening to the nokia. I was shocked at how bad a slightly noisy background envirnoment at the sony side translates to terrible background noise of the nokia receiver. When on the sony and transmitting to a nokia in quiet room, the sony transmits great sound quality to the receiving Nokia and receives gret sound, but when its slighlty noisy, the nokia side has real trouble hearingspeech coherently.
there is a shop at far east plaza (sin) selling at $1290. Save the rest for your birthday cake.
When businesses compete, we as a “customers” win. ImportGSM gust lowered their price for P990 so they match with hi-mobile.net.
ok. so v waited 4 the phone 4 8 months and se comes up with probably the buggiest phone possible. yes, uiq 3 is great. my friend bought the p990. had it 4 a week. was a pure p series fan until se came up with this debacale. he got rid of it in a week.i was stupid enuff not 2 listen 2 him and bought it. se m600 a much better phone in comparison. its the SAME. just no flip so NO F...IN issues. SE could not figure out how 2 make it work with the flip. SERIOUS DISAPPOINTMENT. nice screen. nice camera. business card scanner (in your dreams it works. maybe a handful of times in great lighting.) Buggy - HELL YA. worth it. HELL NO. for 500$, sure go 4 it but a masterpiece it aint.
A freindly message to those of you who do not own the phone, Plz stop writting negative feedbacks, and critising the phone, we do understand that this phone is the not the cup of tea for everybody, for many reasons, PRICE!is the major one of them.and the delay
So please leave this forum roon, and let the actuall P990 Owners share their thoughts and experiences and give us honest feedback ( that can benefit us as owners) on the most innovative smartphone on the market for years to come.
P990i released n Pak but old bugged firmware,1000$.This cell has so complicated mechnism that instead of getting the flavor u get trouble.Updated factory version will bw avaible by 4th qtr.Price at 500 $ could be considered.Folks be on guard......
This phone's released in Pak price Rs 60,000 but nokia N73 is'nt a bad choice especially with 3D sound speakers & half the price.N93 is also worth considering if going for non-bar one.
I just ordered my P990i from singtelshop.com @ S$1,388 without contract (you get $30 discount between 12-6am but the server would be so slow that it's probably not worth waiting) - can't wait for it to arrive on Wednesday! It's a birthday present to myself - my birthday was last month, but I forced myself to wait till P990i goes on sale - thought the day will never come, but now it has. Will post my experience with it on Wed ! CK Tham, Singapore
Folks, do you know where on the Internet can i find P990's user manuals in English?
I got my P990 for $960 CDA, I used to be a PPC freak, cause they all use Windows CE.
But I personally prefer the symbian OS on my P990i. it is v user friendly, the OS is quiet fast, camera is great, and WIFI is simply superb. I agree that the QWERTY is farly small. However,It's still much better than typing w/stylus on the screen. On my old HP PPC , that was a pain on the butt. PLus P990 is much smaller than all PPC on the market.
As far as the keyboard, I belive that it is a matter of time to get used to it. Buttom line, If you are PDA freack, The P990 is the best one so far in the market. It's worth every penny!!
