This is based on my messages. The storage space is 2003 Kb for messages. It works out about 3 words = 1 Kb. The average message I receive is 20 words. That would work out at about 250 to 300 messages assuming they are SMS not MMS. Less if your messages are longer. One would also assume this space is used by Drafts and outgoing as well. The manual is not much help.
Does anyone know how many messages you can have on this phone? i need loads of message space.
To answer Lee,
Yes you can add a photo id to a caller.
If you refer to page 72 of your manual it tells you how. But the crucial bit is the fact you must store the contact details in the phone memory not the SIM memory.
The SIM can only store a limited amount of details not the full details as you can with the phone memory.
To answer Vicky,
Yes you can see the time all over the world but it will always be your local time at home (smile), It does not have a ‘world’ time clock if that is what you are asking. i.e. you cannot have multiple times stored at once, only your local time. You could however change the time to your new local time if you wished it’s only a few key clicks.
I’m still working on that myself will let you know if I find out anything.
Some extra bits you all may like to know.
If you want to send and receive true emails you can either open an O2 email account (free) or use a BT or Yahoo account if you already have one. The phone will then connect to the account and you can send and receive emails from the account using the phone and O2 active.
When typing you emails always press and hold the # key to turn on T9 text input (it seems to be off by default even if you set it to 'default on' in the phone settings menu (don’t ask me why)
Be careful when you set up your email account with O2 as it will send a ‘welcome’ message to your on-line account you specify and one to your phone, both in HTML. The on-line one is fine the phone one is 23 pages of HTML and unreadable (nice one O2).
I am still trying to get the ‘PC Sync’ bit to work. I think I have found out how (it’s on the web site if you log in), but they have not set it up for our phone yet. Will try Customer services and see if I can get any joy from them. Will keep you updated if I can.
Ive got the fone, i think its good but colin said you can add photo id??!! How do you manage that?!
hi i've just got a e101 good phone but i find the text size very small tried changing the font size but when i go too start typing it changes back to the small font what am i doing wrong please help
hey, im getting an NEC e101 for my birthday in 3 days and i cant wait. my parents bought it from argos and from what ive read and seen about it i think it sounds like very good value for money.
thank you Colin, my mum showed my it yesterday its preety neat :D i took one picture and they are quite good pics :D just cant wait now till x-mas day :D :D :D
If you look at the left side of the picture opposite you will see a small black mark, this is the attachment point for a wrist strap (not supplied) carry on around the phone in line with this mark and you will find the camera lens.
The shutter button is on the right hand edge of the keyboard clamshell.
Just for your info the camera is not bad. It has 10 second self timer, Twilight mode, Close Up mode, Rotate picture, Photo Size, Brightness, Image Quality, Effects and Flicker Control (for fluorescent lights)
Effects are Normal/Monochrome/Sepia/ and a sort of Bluish tint.
i no this might sound a stupid question but where to is the camera on it ? please reply beacuse im gettin it 4 x-mas :D
e101 is a brill phone it has a few downsides though you cant watch porn movies on it
Just an update for all you readers.
The dimensions given in the specs are for the handset closed and without the case (it also does not include the height of the antenna, add another 20mm for this).
Not shown and not mentioned is the fact it comes with a soft leatherette type case. The case has a ‘button’ clip on the back that clips into the separate belt clip (with a press lock).
So far no news on how to download to a PC but if you have an internet account (you must if your reading this) you can send the picture via email to your account. Yes it does cost but if you have GPRS working it takes about 30 sec to send one 640 * 480 picture. It’s one way of preserving an important picture if you need to.
The camera is best used on it’s side (in landscape mode), gives a more natural picture and the camera shutter button is now at the top and easy to press.
Oh yes and because it is Tri Band don’t get it to close to your computer when searching for the network or downloading etc, causes hell with the screen and sound.
One useful thing is the ability to switch off the ‘Flip’ for answering and ending calls so you can open the phone and see who is calling then send to voicemail (Parent?) if you wish (or answer if it’s Grandma).
Otherwise a good all round phone and no problems so far.
i h8 big fones how big is this 1 is it smaller then most flip fones? and when it says 84mm is that when its closed or open?
Bought this Phone a week ago great Phone with Camera. Only Fault No Way of Downloading your pictures to your Pc.
So Cameras Useless
i havent had my phone yet i'm having ot for christmas but it looks fab!!!!!!
this is an awsome phone and i think that u should give me one for free as it is new and needs testing out. it would be great for business
Can you get the the nec e101 unlcoked so you can put your own sim in, i really dont want to get yet another number!
I bought this phone from Argos two days ago (it’s not in the catalogue but your local store may have it). As Bob said it’s very good for it’s price. I have found a couple of niggles,
1. The manual says you can sync to a PC but does not say how and no cable is supplied.
2. In the phone book it seems impossible to add letters to a postcode, only numbers.
3. the T9 text input while good is not as intuitive as the Nokia text input.
4. The ‘end’ key is right next to the right navigation key and it is very easy (for a man with big fingers) to hit both keys at the same time and exit from what you were doing without doing anything.
To answer Helen, yes you can add a photo id for callers (and an individual ring tone or a group ring tone etc.).
Otherwise I found it easy to use and the GPRS worked fine. Pay as you go pricing is not bad on O2 either.
