Not even a public beta

P. Sabourenkov "Technophile Downunder", Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this phone yesterday (not from Amazon). Amazing little device with a lot of innovative features. For example, the phone notifies the user of failure to connect to a WiFi network by crashing and rebooting.

Phone frezes often. Avoid!

J. Cagnol, Amazon
6 August 2007
  • Summary: This phone is packed with features so we bought it. It turns out the phone freezes very often including on some simple operations. If you don't mind removing the battery and restarting the phone every now and then, this phone is for you. If you want a reliable phone, avoid at all cost.

  • Summary: I am a fan of sony ericsson, I love the cellphones they make I bought the P990 and I regret it, it constantly freezes, turns off on its own, I can't call because when I try is like if I have no service and I do have all signal... So I don't recomend this Item.

SLOW!!!

Leungmor, Amazon
19 February 2007
  • Summary: I had the P910i before and thought this is the natural upgrade. However, I found this phone to be very slow and not compatibable for bluetooth sync with my iMac. Would have stuck with my P910i.

That business phone keeps you busy!

T. Beierle, Amazon
29 January 2007
  • Summary: When I first heard about the P990i and the specifications, I was really impressed. After I received it, this became less and less. So many bugs and crashes with a cell phone! Incredible! So I waited for the long promised firmware update, everything should be ok then, at least they promised.

It does not work

Sejo Jahic, Amazon
18 November 2006
  • Summary: I have been using it now for 5 days and I can not believe that Sony Ericsson would release a device that does not work. The phone crashes pretty much every time you try to get connect to the data network (forget about using WiFi throught more than 4 web pages).

23 January 2007
  • Summary: Very hard to navigate, using the back button does not close applications, slow processor and firmware can't cope, simple as that. It was my first try of a Z phone and expected so much more from Sony Ericsson as I am loyal to them now after being burnt with every Nokia experience I've ever had...
  • Pros: The idea
  • Cons: The reality of 12 freezes/lockups in 3 days - very unstable firmware to hang such a powerful package of programs onto.

  • Summary: I have been using S/E's Pxxx range of phones for a long time. This one needs to have it's O/S completely re-written. I can't trust this phone to use with my bussiness communications. I feel I will not be using S/E phones anymore.
  • Pros: Lots of built-in software
  • Cons: Do a websearch on memory errors, SMS errors, re-starting.

Sony Ericsson must have real disdain for their customers

anonym, Dooyoo
24 November 2006
  • Excerpt: Don't buy this phone. I had the P900, then the 910, got on well with both of them. They got beaten up, so decided to upgrade to the 990 - mistake. Here is my review: PROS - it looks good - video works well - 2 MP camera is impressive - that's about it CONS - it is bloated with features and the...
