I have found a site!!!! only £1.30 a ringtone and you can pay via paypal...cool...
I was clever and waited until after xmas to buy this phone just incase it went down in price - and it did! It was £45 from Argos! BARGIN!!
I am very impressed with it - especially the quality of the photo's. I'm slowly adapting to it after having Nokia's for years!
However, the ringtones really aren't the best!! I was wondering if anyone knew where i can get free ringtones from?? I have looked at a number of websites on the net but most of them you get one free ringtone and then you get subscribed to them and end up paying upto £2.50 a week - which is a bit of a rip off! Is there anywhere where you can get free ringtones??
Also, i have found a few sites where you order them through WAP and type in the URL and then a code they give you. However, i haven't got a clue how to use WAP! How do you type in a URL to go to a specific address? I can't seem to find out how. I can't get past O2 Active.
Please help! Thanks xx

hope someone can help
Does anybody know where you can download games for this phone. I bought it for my daughter for Christmas because you could access 02 active but none of the games are compatible with handset.
Before I start, thanks Colin for all your help and support with this phone. A couple of other things I am not sure of. I have programmed my voicemail number into the phone and it says in the manual that you can press "1" and it will dial your voicemail as it used to with the Nokia, but it doesn't seem to work, does anyone have any solutions. The other point is that when sending a text message and selecting a number from the phone book, it automatically defaults to "complete" which lists numbers on both the phone and sim card. Is there anyway of changing this setting to it being either one or the other as it is on the Nokia. Perhaps I am being picky after having Nokia's for 7 years. I like this phone and has some good features but will still get a Nokia 6230 on my free upgrade with O2 when my contract is renewed in 6 weeks and that way I will have the best of both worlds.
Hi, can anyone tell me where to get games to download for the e101? I've found loads of sites but none for this phone
Hi All, Back to the land of the living after to much wine, food and song over the festive period.
First you need to take a photo of your caller and store it in the ‘Photos’ or ‘Pictures’ folder (under ‘My data,).
Then either add or edit your caller details in your phone book. Scroll down to the ‘Caller Picture’ line, Select ‘Options’ and add your picture. Then ‘Save’ to attach the picture to the caller number. Make sure your caller details are saved in the ‘Phone Memory’ not the SIM memory as this gives many more caller details you can store.
Don’t worry if GPRS is connected it is like broadband for a landline. You only pay for data transferred and if you don’t connect to O2 active or similar then you won’t use any of your credit. The PDP is like dial up internet access for a landline and will only switch in if GPRS is out of range AND you try and connect to O2 active.
The screen timer seems to be fixed and like you I think it’s a bit short. Both displays can be changed for contrast and brightness, also the external display can be set up in slightly different ways, it’s all in the phone settings (Key 1 from your menu). The reason it fades so quick is to conserve battery power.
You can make the text slightly larger but only while you are typing the current message, as soon as you exit or start a new message it reverts to the small text again (very hard on my old eyes).
With regards to the full stop, one trick I found is if you press and hold the key down a small list of the digits that each key types pops up and a small black cursor jumps along the list until it reaches the digit you need, then release the key to insert it in your text. Weird but it works.
Dialling from the phone book is really weird. I am used to an old 3210 Nokia and just did phonebook, search, hit key, select and OK to dial (easy). Now you do most of the above but when you find you number it seems you have to hit the ‘Off Hook’ key to dial the number. You can also use the ‘Off Hook’ key to bring up a list of your last dialled numbers, scroll down to you reach the number you need, then don’t do what you think and press the ‘Options’ soft-key, hit ‘Off Hook’ again and it will dial the number.
hey, just got the NED e101 4 xmas and have bn lovin it aprt from 3 v annoyin factors - 1) the font 4 evrythin especially 4 txtin is v small 2)on normal txting the full stop is rite at the end of the '1' button selection (very tedious) and 3) u cant select fone numbers 4 auto key dial even tho it says u can (it just switches back straight away) if ne1 has ne solutions 2 these problems PLEASE tell me, thnku!!! xx
Bought this phone today and overall, I am pleased with it. It seems to be permanently connected to GPRS or PDP(whatever that is). Can anyone tell me how to turn it off as don't want to have a huge phone bill. Also the main LCD screen turns itself off after a couple minutes of using it. Can this be altered? Also the screen on the front, the time and date don't appear to be very bright. Can this be changed at all? I am used to Nokia's so it is taking a little time getting used to.
Oh yer forgot to say cheers to colin for all his useful information up todate.
Her indoors just got me this phone for xmas 1/2 price in argos.Guess what Argos have done it again they reduced it by half again and now retailing at 44.95p.
how do you set up the photo I.D feature on the phone. I have looked at p72 of the manual but all it says is a phone book picture I.D for the caller.
Also, is there a way that you can transfer pictures from the phone onto a computer if so how do you do this?
Just a quick ‘Happy Christmas’ to everyone and to those who got their phone today I hope you like it as much as I do.
No charger as yet and as NEC were not going to release the model until next year (2005) it has probably not reached the shops yet. I want a ‘hands free kit and a charger' but none of my local shops had even seen the phone and O2 technical support have not listed it on their site yet.
Most of the details I’ve found from a European site (had to blag my way in) but it’s the only one that has ring tones and wallpaper for the 101 (no they won’t send it to your phone, wrong country!).
Good one Lee.
Well must get back to the Grandchildren, keep safe over the new year.
Does anyone know if their is an incar charger for the e101. Have tried all the major shops
this phone is great. It looks like the phone of my dreams and will be getting it for x-mas.
I think that this mobile is a grat phone for if you want to go small. It is a small silver mobile shaped liked a clamshell and has a camera on it. It has 13 ringtones and more if you download some. The camera quality on it is grat and it is just the phone that everyone will love if they see it.
