Following on from my original post below - a few additional problems I've
encountered.

1. This is relatively minor but a fault all the same. When I tap on the
book icon to bring up my contacts they invariably come up without the
associated number being shown. If I select another program and then
reselect the contacts icon the number is displayed.

2. When I back up my phone I would really like a full back-up. In Outlook
on my desktop I store numbers with the standard STD code e.g. 01242 123456.
However, because I travel a great deal I like to have them stored in the
phone as +441242 123456. When I do a restore the contacts are not migrated
across so I have to synch with Outlook (2003) and then manually change all
the numbers - this should simply not be necessary. I know I could save
contacts to the SIM card but I have far too many for that to be a viable
option.

3. When inputting text using the keypad and I make an error, if I want to
go back and correct it I have to delete my way back as opposed to using some
sort of back arrow (as on my old T39); this is cumbersome and massively
annoying.

4. I have resorted to paying for DateMate in order to synchronize the
birthdays etc that I have in Outlook which simply refused to move across to
the P900.

5. The calendar defaults to show the daily view. I would like the option
to show the monthly view (or weekly view) by default.

Hi,

In the vain hope that it might make a difference how about a list of
suggested improvements/enhancements to the SE P900? Any company worth its
salt would monitor newsgroups/websites concerning their products so you
never know. Anyway, to start the ball rolling:

1. Allow an unlimited amount of memory (overflow onto Memory Card if
required) for voice dialling tags. Here in the UK it is now illegal to make
a call whilst driving holding a phone so I have a Bluetooth headset but have
very
quickly reached the limit of memory allocated for voice tags.

2. When using the jog wheel (or whatever it's called) provide an option
to
access all folders of text messages e.g. Sent Items, Draft. Currently the
options are limited to accessing the Inbox or Creating a new message.

3. Allow user to put function/icons onto the menu. For example, I want
to have immediate access to Bluetooth in the minimum number of key
presses/screen taps. Personally I would like a simple toggle soft key on
the main screen for Bluetooth on/off with the saved settings.

So, there's my 2p worth.

Regards
AC

If you tick/select the option to "show preferred phone number" it'll show the
number each time.

Just tap the screen right behind the mistake, and backspace once. Then when it's
been
corrected just tap back to where you were. No biggy...

Put them in as recurring Appointments - not reminders. It'll sync them then
I've
heard.
