What memory card is supported?
Memory Stick DUO only. No, normal Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro or Memory Stick DUO Pro. Memory Stick DUO maximum size is 128MB.

What are the main difference compared to the P800? Is it worth upgrading?
A lot off people ask this! Judge for yourself

Can I update my firmware myself?
Yes you can!

Can an MP3 be used as a ringtone?
Yes you can. It wasn’t possible on the P800 yet, but on the P900 it is!

What bluetooth profiles are supported?
Generic access profile, Serial port profile, Generic Object Exchange Profile, Dialup Networking Profile, Object Push Profile, Headset Profile, File Transfer Profile.

Please note that it doesn't have Handsfree profile

How do I convert a DVD to a file I can play on the P900?
There is a great, extensive tutorial here:

Can Outlook categories be synced?
No, unfortunately not

Does the alarm ring when the phone is not on?
No unfortunately not. If you don't want to be called or have any other gsm-activities but do want to hear the alarm, put your phone on Flight mode.

What image-size is used for pictures to fit the screen exactly?
Although the screensize in FC mode is 208x208 and FO mode is 208x320, those aren't the exact size of a background-picture since there is a statusbar and an "applicationbar" etc.

These are the exact measures
Flip close: 208x189
Flip open: 208x254

Does the P900 have profiles?
Not natively, but there is software that can fix that.

Can you create and edit Word and Excel files?
Once again, not natively, but once again, there is software that can fix that!

Does the P900 have fax capabilities
No, unfortunately not

Can you adjust the contrast of the P900's screen?
No, not gonna happen...

Any key-shortcuts?
Press and hold the “C” key on the keypad to turn on silent mode.
Press and hold the “1” key on the keypad to dial your voice-mail (if the number is set)
Press and hold the “Option” key on the keypad or press and hold the jog-dial “towards” yourself to open “Applications”
Press and hold any number key on the keypad to open "Contacts"

How can I access the service-menu?
Push your jog-dial "up" --> Press * --> Push your jog-dial "down" --> Push your jog-dial "down" again --> Press * --> Push your jog-dial "down" again --> Press *

Use at your own risk only (not that there is much risk but to be on the safe side )

Can I map the keys?
Yes, with this app you can

Where can I find the latest PC Suite and other software?

Can I use a full-size keyboard?
Yes. There are a few that work with the P900. The first is an infrared keyboard from ThinkOutside (known as the PocketTop, Palm Wireless Keyboard...).
Drivers for this keyboard can be found here:

The second one is from ThinkOutside too, it is a bluetooth keyboard with drivers supplied.

More tips and tricks?
