John V. Dactilidis, 27 Jun 2013Do you know where can I buy NEC e949/L1?I've been looking for one for ages. The closest I got was the same model in blue color and the Peugeot logo on eBay.
I'm thinking to buy NEC e949/L1 for my birthday and I'm not 100% sure if I really want it.I want to write me your opinions about the phone.
Hello everyone, if you have your nec 949 freezed than try to do next action, open sim card apartment and using a piece of wire or scrap and connect two contact points (you'll see them under sim lid-two round contacts close to eachother)it helps me, good luck with that!

know, and then offers me the opportunity to change
the pin. This is what happened, i forgot the pin,
and now it wants an unblocking PUK code.
I bought this phone over ebay, so would my provider
be able to send or have a PUK code that they didnt
code into the phone ? How does a provider know
about a phone they didnt sell ?
great phone, though i managed to brick it by setting
a password and now I can not remember what it was.
Anyone know how to resolve numerous attempts to
guess the password which freezes the phone ?
I have this phone back in 2006. and I still try to find him on ebay.

Hello!! I'm now on my third one of these phones. /all have been purchased 2nd hand. The phone design is aging by the stds that you can purchase now but the NEC design is just simply great! It's a well posey little number that everyone who sees it in my hand comments on... The only negative from me is the battery life but i guess it would be less asit's so slim. If you want a 'no-gimmic' phone that looks smart, this is the one. You can also buy them at a good price these days.. Cheers!!
One of the best thing about this phone is its shape and camera.Love to take pics on that.Only problem no card slot.
Vu, Nguyen Cong, 19 Apr 2008Hello,! I am in Viet Nam, I love my cell phone NEC e949, but it was dropped. Now he is not ... morewell a phone just like human brain if you dropped it hard enough it will get damage inside just like human when you hit your head too hard you will be cucu i suggest you take it to the phone store have it check up and fix just like human need to go to the doctor for an Xray.
Ive had the phone for over a year now and I think I can give a fair review. The feature set is very nice for a phone of this size and the construction (made in Japan) is high quality materials. Due to the small battery capcity you will likely need to charge the battery every night, which is the worst thing about this phone. The bluetooth performance is also somewhat slow compared to my girlfriends N73. Also, while the camera resolution is much higher than the V3 the lens quality is only so-so, so optimal images require perfect conditions. The phone is pretty customizable and personally I find the interface to be very intuitive and easy to use. As a basic phone this one is tough to beat in the slim flip category. Its aged a bit though, but this market seems to have been abandoned so at current street prices it is still worthy of consideration.
