    got a dead pixel on my p900 and had a few nightmares with the bluetooth on this phone aswell as it starting to crash a lot so i thought id claim on my insurance.called orange last night they said no problem and they would have my new phone to me between 6pm and 10 pm next day :) phone arrives 7pm and the delivery guy says to me that he has had more returns on this phone then any other :eek: i asked him how long he had been a delivery fella etc and he said about 6 years :( he said the amount of these that had been returned through faults was incredible considerring the cost and sonys quality.

    so has anyone else had probs with this phone ??? personnaly i think it could be the complexity that is getting people to believe there is a fault because they cant understand that this is not only a phone but a pda aswell.

    Never seen one with dead pixels at work, but for software faults they're poop.

    Quick firmware flash fixes it usually, see 3 or 4 a month come back with niggly faults at work.

    6600 is the real goit for dead pixels.

    I've had 3 of these all work fine, no dead pixels or bluetooth probs. I bought 2 initially for my wife and I all OK. Then I lost mine (don't trust the case that comes with it not to fall off your belt!!!! I've got a Krussel case now its great) so I received another on O2's insurance and that is OK too. I also told a couple of mates to get them and they are fine too.

    Cheers

    Dave

    P.S. can you flash the firmware of an O2 P900 on Sonyericcsons website??? Anyone know

    You can't flash the O2 branded P900 online from the Sony Ericsson site. You'll have to get it flashed via a service centre at first then you can do it yourself from there.

    I got a replacement from O2 (at long last), a brand new sim free unbranded one which I have now flashed to R4B03.

    Works fine.....but as I waited so long I am just about to get an XDA 2 now !
