Very disappointed about it. I use it 6 month. Crashed often. The worst is the battery - should be recharged daily or maximum at 2 days (maximum 2 hours in conversation). The specifications are for 9 hours in conversation - big liers Ericsson. And the last – the original case has a big problem it has only a clips without the posibility to lock on the belt.
Now I bought a Nokia E51, half price, better phone. It was a real upgrade.
this phone is awesome!
i just realised that with my 3g network, i can connect it through USB or bluetooth to my laptop and use my laptop anywhere (with 3g network signal) for internet connection.
i was gonna get a wireless modem but not anymore. not much difference with p1 so i dont see the point of replacing.
HIGHLY SUGGESTED PHONE EVEN FOR BASIC PHONE USERS WITH LAPTOP..TO BE ON THE GO!
Basically both phones belongs different category,N73 equipped with 3.2 carl ziss optic camera phone producing fine still pictures but the video capture is suck all time ,whereas P990I is a multitasker phone .you can do everything with this gadget this phone have a better 2mp camera,3g,wifi capability,qwerty keyboard which is very useful .If you want a all round phone with a good stabilty unduoghtedly go for se p990i,I used both phones and my personel opinion going for se p990i.
i am totally disappointed with it!
but yet itWAS so cool...
bcuz now it does 'nt work at all...
actually i dropped it in river and for just 5 seconds it was there and now...:((
Had nothing but problems with P990.
Enjoyed both the P900 and P910 in this range before i had the P990 and was very happy with them.
Had P990 handset replaced within 3 months due to crash/resetting for "enhanced performance" (what a joke). Then replaced again 6 montha after, for similar reasons, amoungst others.
Captured images are not saved and then phone crashes of freezes,
Slow at opening and operating features,
Often drop down menus have no text.
Over all this phone is slow. The three other people I know with P990 had all suffered similar problems or disappointment. I had been really happy with the previous two models in the P900 range, but would NOT RECOMMEND P990.
thanks super ,
i tried tat ady . the problem is , i dont know how to donwload the new firmware manually bcus i am kinda noob at all this stuff , u think u cna help me with this ? maybe step by step advise ? thanks ! : )
i do rili want to buy this cp..
is it worth buying b??
do u hve any problms w/ ur p990i fones??
Just upgrade the firmware at sonyericsson.com homepage to make it 200% stable and 200% faster.
Yes it supports 4Gig and There's a small mirror at the back for taking self portrait.
good day to all of you. I bought my very own p990 a few days ago and im pretty much contended about it. big screen, nice camera, and its multi function capability. the only downside for me is the size. it doesnt fit on my pocket. but i dont care really. who wants a small phone with little functions anyway. can somebody tell me if the front camera can be use in taking pictures? and how do i use the wifi? can it support an 4 gig memory card? tnx
hi everyone ,
i jus bot a new p990i last few days .
it crashed for like 9 times ady . can someone tell me wats wrong ?
doing a firmware upgrade (R6E28) and getting Tweak Peaks software(find it on your own though, hehe) installed will give you 200% boost in speed. lags and restart problem solved. all in all i love this phone. wifi, camera ( even better than some 2 megapix that i had so far). pocket word ,excel . games.dvd quality movie playback. the only downside for this phone is its sheer size. other than that it's perfect
can dis phone work on dubai???? please anyone answer me, im from the philippines but im going abroad and i wanna bring this phone with me
I used this phone for almost 6 month, i'm very dissapointed with this phone, it's always restart by itself when i'm try to use the camera, i don't know why.. and now my phone at the service center for 2 weeks.. when i have it back, i will directly sell it and buy a Nokia E51...
Time has come that the P990i specs are already dated. The interface is not user friendly. this phone might be rather thick for my pocket.
The only thing that never fail to amaze me UNTIL NOW is it's unique physical design. Yes it's thick but it makes it the most macho looking phone ever! it's plastic built might have tricked us to look like metal but who cares it works! For me it's design will never loose out of fashion. Other phones look feminine if not plastic looking.
I have p990i with the latest s/w and also the PC suite upgraded. I can connect it to my PC and do the backup and restore but cannot Sync the Contacts to my MS outlook.
I have tried all things told by the SE support, diable firewall, antivirus, etc. but yet no result.
Can someone let me know of a software that can do that or a solution for this problem?
It does not even give and error code, simply says 'Syncronization failed'
The slow starting of SMS in P990i has nothing to do with the processor. Even a prehistoric Nokia 5110 can start SMS in less than a second. I believe the slow start is a result of inefficient programming design sonyEricsson implemented to their messaging interface.
Seems it wastes precious seconds by refreshing the screen several times and also visits inbox, outbox and drafs before finaly launch new SMS!
