    I just brought a p900 thinking it would be great.. but its
    been very disappointing:-

    1. Straight away you're needing to purchase a higher capacity MemoryStick
    because you can't do much with the one that comes with it..
    Can't download more than a couple of the applications.. Memory errors
    even when there are 5 MB free...

    2. The Car Rally game, the RemotePC etc software that comes with
    it.. and features I thought I was getting are in fact all "demos" which
    you need to spend more money to get the real thing.

    3. Because of a competitive Teleco "war" I can't use the email
    feature to check my email at the "other" telecos POP server.
    (This is not a problem with the phone.. but again its something
    Marketing don't warn you about when you purchase a phone
    to check your email then find its not actually possible unless
    you change your email accounts to a different company).
    So the main reason why I purchased the phone.. I can't use it for.

    As usual the "promise" or "Hype" is far more than the reality.

    Depends on the application of the phone, not all users would need to get
    bigger memory stick unless they use memory intensive applications such as
    loading more programs on and loading music on to in large amounts..

    This is Sony Ericssons fault how? these programs are developed by 3rd partys
    for the symbian OS, thats like
    buying a Computer and expecting them to give you all the software for free

    I have no issue using my providers gprs to check any email account, set the
    device to dial in to your dialup isp provider and use that to check email,
    its not the devices fault your carrier dosnt support true internet access to
    allow any pop3 to work.

    I disagree, bit more like Microsoft bunging a good game with windows and
    hyping it up showing pictures of the game in promotional shots only for you
    to buy the OS and find you have to *buy* the game. Disappointing but still
    warez is your friend.

    I believe if you went to the SonyEricsson site and viewed the P900 it states
    that the applications are indeed demos. It also clearly states the size of
    the memory stick duo that comes with the phone. If the phone did not meet
    you're specs why did you purchase it?

    Well IMHO I think it's a great phone, it has a big screen, it's touchscreen,
    has Bluetooth, etc sorry to hear you don't get on with it : (

    Re: unhappy p900 user

    yes....I know I was griping.. **it is a great phone** and I'm going to
    continue using it!!!!.. but that still doesn't mean I'm not a little
    disappointed by some aspects
    of it.. and I was just pointing out to other propsective purchasers
    a couple of possible misunderstandings because I did research
    the phone.. but it didn't occur to me I was going to have those
    problems..

    New Gripe..Last couple of days the software has crashed at least 3 times
    while playing with it..... had to take out battery to restart. Screen just
    goes
    blank and can't do anything with it......

    Or consider which additional programs that you may have installed yourself
    may be causing a conflict
    of some kind? Every now and then I format my phone and install my key apps
    from scratch to make sure the phone is "clean" of any junk that may have
    been left behind from various apps that I may have tried but not kept.
