I think Frank meant he couldn't read the texts because the writing is too small. It's not possible to increase the size as far as I know.
Also re the zooming, from memory I think it only works if you are on a low resolution, in high res nothing happens.
When you go into camera mode either press the up arrom to zoom in and down to zoom out, bizarrely you can only do this to 1 photo then come out and go back in and do it again - or when in camera mode you can click on options and then change various things including photo size.....
Re received texts you should see a little envelope on bottom right of screen and then click the @ sign to read them or go thro the menu's to messages and then to inbox and read them from there...
I realy like it but i can't get the zoom to work. Please tell me what to do!!
I have also purchased the E101 phone, however I am unable to see the texts that I receive, I have worked out how to make the font large when typing a text, however this dies not install in forfuture messages, can anyone help please....
Aiden, it doesn't. Unfortunately it seems that NEC stopped short of finishing the pc sync feature. To get photos from your phone to your pc you must email them.....
Laura, you should be able to get a charger from here http://www.mobilephonecrazy.com/model/e101.htm They don't list the e101 under the NEC list if you navigate via Chargers but if you navigate via NEC they are there. Hope that makes sense. I just bought a car charger from them with no problems. They also do batteries for the e101.
my charger has broken for me NEC e101 and i am insearch off a new one but no phone shops sell them i was wondering if any one could help me and tell me if there is any internet site i could buy one from
Graham, I assume you mean that the charger switches itself off, not the phone? If that's the case it sounds as if the battery has failed....... hunt for new one.
I have used the e101 for several months now and have been quite happy with it even taking into account the very temperamental charger. However I now have a problem that the phone starts to charge, switches itself off, starts to charge, switches itself off, etc etc etc. As a result the phone is now unusable. Any suggestions of a solution would be much appreciated and hopefully will save the phone from a trip to the dustbin.
hi im from mauritius and buy my nec e101 in uk.the only problem is that i can't use it here it can't be unblock so if someone can help me please.i hold my phone every day waiting for the day i'll be able to se it here i love it so much its a gift from my mum so plese help me.
i've got one, i find itreally easy to work. the camera is at the back, some times it takes a long time to react to the buttons yo push but appart from that its pretty decent
The nec e101 is a good phone but i hav 3 faults, the java and animations are dead slow, the o2 games arcade is empty(seriously) and the amr files are only audio memo only (not ringtones) The data cable is £££ (£195.99 from fone fun shop to be exact) and it is not made by nec it is the panasonic one?????????
I'm very glad I didn't pay £89.95 for it I must say! I must admit I haven't tried ordering a charger or battery on the internet, I just saw the site showed them and assumed they were available. This site also has chargers but not batteries, might be worth a try: http://www.solware.co.uk/mobile-phone-mains-car-desktop-emergency-chargers/index.shtml
Argos don't know anything about what they sell, certainly not to pc sync port depth! It is obviously pointless having it without any use. Do NEC support their other phones any better or are they all treated as 'disposable'? Has your battery gone then? Would be interested to hear how you het on with trading standards, presumably NEC have a legal obligation to be able to keep the thing going for at at least 12 months? If not then Argos should give a full refund I would have thought.
I bought mine for £89.95 at Argos before Christmas. Three months later and Argos no longer sold them!
Tried to order battery/charger via internet and was refunded my money and told that they can no longer be supplied.
Yes I know we have to pay to download our own photographs- despite the phone having a PC sync port- NEC obviously designed this then decided to pull out before finishing development.
Where you informed of this when you bought your phone?
If so what do you use the PC sync port for?
Mark, I have not had any problems with my phone, and the only real complaint is that there is no download cable to transfer photos, I have to email them to myself. I get the ringtones I want for free from http://www.free-ringtones-free-logos.com/and I don't use it for games so don't have a problem with them. You can buy batteries and chargers here: http://www.mobilephonecrazy.com/model/e101.htm
My E101 cost £44.95 from Argos and overall I consider it a bargain, I have only had it since January but so far so good....
Nice design, very poorly supported with a lot of people sadly 'duped' into buying this phone by NEC and Argos.
I have just been infomed that chargers/batteries can no longer be purchased for this phone.
Sadly when your battery expires the phone is useless.
My phone is only 7 months old.
I am pursuing this further through trading standards.
when i am using my phone it tends to freeze and i have to take oput the battery to turn it off any hekp luv jes xx
i dont recieve texts for hours or days at a time (longest was 3 days before i recieved texts)I live in a resonably weak signal area but my sister is on o2 and she has full bars, i have two, but that makes no difference for even in strong signal areas in town, i still might not recieve the text(s) anyone had a simmiliar problem or know how it can be resolved? thanks in advance xXx
