Derek, I didn't have to alter any settings or anything on mine, it is just as it came out of the box. Also on O2. Message/Create/MMS/Insert/Insert photo (then select photo)/Options/Send/Options/Phonebook (select the person you want & send). I haven't received any pics yet but I assume it works OK but nobody has sent me anything....sad!
Bought NEC e101 from Woolworths Old Sawn Liverpool, Sunday 2/01/05 and as yet have been unable to use the camera to send or receive photos. Have been back to store and to the o2 store, as thats the network its on and no one is able to help. Can you pleas advise me on what to do? In laymans terms please!
Lou 2 get the ringtones u have downloaded to ring you need 2 set the ringtone as either a phonebook tone or message tone etc then u need 2 ring from a number u have in your phonebook or wat eva u have chosen
Lou, it seemed to take a few goes before I could get the right tune to set as ringtone but it did it OK in the end. I think it only worked when I did it as Phonebook calls, but I am not certain of that. I did My Data/Sounds/Options/Set as ringtone/Phonebook calls. You can get free ringtones from www.free-ringtones-free-logos.com/ Not sure if you will think they are better then O2 or not but there is a good choice and no charge.
Does any1 know where i can get a NEC e101 phone ive looked i nargos and it always says OUT of stock (really annoying.) on pay as u go any replys via email thanks
I am having trouble with my ringtones - I downloaded a few but cant get them to ring. The tones that are supplied on the phone are soooo annoying - can anyone help!! They are saved in the sounds part of the phone and i have tried changing it by mode, settings, ringer and by sounds then set as ringtone.
Oh - and the o2 ringtones at a pricey £2.50 each are really naff.
I would really appreciate it if anyone could advise me on this! Thanks!
£44.95 at Argos, it's not in the main catalogue, it's in the discontinued range. Don't know why, it's a relatively new phone. Cat No 0547/0721
Christa i got my mms set up cos wen i first got the phone 02 sent me a msg sayin 2 activate my mms settings i just need 2 send the msg 'picon' so i did. and frm then on i've had no probs wit my mms msgin
I don't understand why people are having trouble with ringtones, I just went to www.free-ringtones-free-logos.com/ and got the ones I wanted for free. I did it from my pc but presumably it would work just as well directly from the phone.
after a month of sheer frustration with crap signals/ringtones/texting i took it back to the shop and got a refund. worst phone i've ever had
Thanks for the reply Callum! And to everyone - i have a Motorola V600 and have sent ringtones from this phone to the E101 - which work!!! And re MMS - i think you have to send an MMS first before you can receive any. Worked for me. Tried to unlock the phone however, and the code is not available as yet. Ended up giving the phone away and reverting back to my Motorola. Is a nice little phone though!! To the people who arent getting good signals (showing sos all the time) you can but signal boosters online - they are about £5.00 - try that.
Plus I have the data cable from my old Siemens which works now :) I hated emailing my photos via MMS at 20p a time!
I got the Siemens C65 in the end. At least I know where I stand now. The NEC is good value, but texting wasn't exactly a joy (I ended up closing the message half of the time as the keys were so close together!). So back with a Siemens now, and it's easy to use, easy to text and feels like it might last for longer than a few months. And I can charge it! lol
vicki, my phone nvr gets hot wen chargin either. but i will say tht my phone has crashed once!!
Ive had this phone firstly for xmas then took it back and got it for half price £45 when argos reduced it on boxing day.No problems with it so far but you get for what you pay!!To set up mms just follow the o2 lit you get with the phone,you cant download to a pc as there is'nt a cable for it it will never match a nokia but its 1/8 cheaper
Vicki, sounds as if the phone is duff not the charger. Mine never gets hot when charging whether it is switched on or off. The manual says to charge with it off preferably but can be on if you need the phone working. I have had no problems with crashes at all, I think you were just unlucky with yours.
its me again, just read a question someone asked cos they dint know how 2 get past o2 active & go to another URL. well wen u are on the o2 browser in the top left hand corner there is a box with a purple thing in it u need 2 click on it then go down to option 5 which is 'go to URL' hope that helps ya Em!!
yes i know how to get free ringtones. i went on wap on my phone then went to 'go to URL' & typed in www.google.com, then wen tht came up i typed in 'free ringtones' then lots of different sites came up & some of em were gd sites. then when i found the good sites i got the ringtones i wanted i jus downloaded em 2 my phone!! hope i helped u all & have as much fun as i did cos there free lol!!
i bought a nec e101 phone before xmas & paid £89.95 from argos 4 it & now i feel so ripped off as its much cheaper. but anyway i find the my phone says 'emergency only' quite often & also i dunno how 2 transfer photos to my pc. apart from that i like the look of the phone & its has a gd camera i like the different modes on it. and also u can set the 'auto on & off' which i thought was cool.
