Better to get the P990 with the warranty. Know of a few people who are/where facing problems with it. I believe Navin had to get his replaced as well.

About the Indiatimes offer, it seems great. No idea about how they are to deal with though. However, if I hadn't bought a phone just recently, I would have been tempted to go in for it.

I have been using P990 from nov'06 and will not recommend anyone. I have updated the software muliple times but its still buggy. It is also too bulky and does not have any extra ordinary features for the size. Music quality is also not as good as K750 which i had earlier.

Problems i have faced:
- Too slow
- Restarts atleast once in a day.
- Restarts when a msg comes.
- Restarts when i try to answer a incoming call (most irritating when you get international call).
- Software bugs
-- Browser does not open on first click
-- When i try to open Gmail client, other application opens up
-- Wifi not powerful. Does not catch signal at home where my laptop works well.
-Dont like the resolution

I am a SE fan but really disappointed with this phone. I will not call one off problem because 2 of my other friends who bought with me also struggling.

I guess thats the reason why rate has fallen so drastically. It cost as much as k790...

The stealth is a nice phone. Like an Atom with a regular numeric keypad but is it stable?

I have R5 but still not very happy... Price has fallen so dont want to trade now. I will loose 8k in 3 months. Not worth it.
