I have very bad things to say about this phone, We bought 3 e313 phones and have had one returned once and another one returned twice and the third one need to be returned. I was in the three store today and there were 3 other customers that where not happy at all and none of us got any satisfaction. When i purchased the phones they were new but I am told everytime you have a problem with the phone your sent a refurbished phone not a new one until the third time. This is very bad business and i woundnt recomment them to anyone so all up we have had 7 phones and not one has worked effectively. The phones freeze all the time. When you call someone says its connected but cant hear anyone so i am paying for the call that is not even working ect
How to unlock your 3 e313 phone,
Put your new sim into the phone. (see note at bottom)
If you type *#5830# on your phone it shows all the unlocking codes VERY BRIEFLY.
This will pop up for a fraction of a second, so be ready to memorize one set (8 digits, 4 sets displayed)
Write it down and use it in the _____ area below.
Now enter #4960*_____# , nothing happens but thats how it should be.
Now enter *4960*_____*_____# and it'll say "simlock on". Its now locked to the simcard thats in the phone.
Switch it off, then back on again.
p.s. I have had problems with phones when the 3 sim card has been put into the phone.
It reports unlocked and locked. but doesnt allow the sim to be used.
make sure your sim is not password locked before doing this too.
I have used e313's on t-mobile, virgin and vodafone to date (over the last week).
Although the one-2-one (t-mobile) was a bit tricky as it initially displayed the NEC logo and stopped.
No U-sim error message
i want to buy one of your nec phones but want to know how long the e313 or any of them record a video for.and if it can be used in West Africa.
i have resently purchased the nec e313 and i want to know how to download mp3 files
Jacks so called hyperlink to take yu to a free software download doesnt work. But this one does:
The only prob with this link is you cannot copy and paste it.
This phone is extremely reliable. The number of times I've dropped it and it still works like new. In Tokyo, you gotta be fast and this is the phone for me as when I'm walking at it frops, even real hard, still works like new and only suffers minor scratches, anyone else noticed how it's durable against hard use too?
can anyone tell me if u can get this phone unlocked to any network and can u get ringtones on your phone via the usb cable e-mail me if u can help
i like e313 and want to purchase it.
tel me purchse methord, use in pakistan on mobilink network.sen me total price with accesories and delivery.
A lot of thanks,
hey my parents got me this fone yesterday and i think its brilliant! i have the E313, and we are debating where to get the USB cable from, i have taken Jacks advice on going to get one from superdrug for a tenner. the only thing is where to get the software... again, jack suggests a website that he has put on here, but it doesnt work in my browser... if someone could tell me where to go to get to that site i would be very grateful!
I am still wondering what to do with the miserable selection of useless downloads from 3G. The NEC E313 would be more useful if I could get a data cable for it
This phone is wicked.
PLEASE READ: if you have an NEC e313 and you need the data cable software do not buy it. Go on to this very long link below and get the software FREE download the USB drivers first then the PC Transfer Utility. Heres the link:
After you have downloaded the software buy a £10 data cable from Superdrug
hey can someone please tell me how to put mp3 files on the phone please thanks
I wrote recently (18/7) with praise for the nec e323.After a few days to play with it and gather more info of the net (plenty available)my opinion has changed. I have never been so disgusted with anyone as i am with "3" they have taken a very good phone and disabled or nobled most of its best features. No proper web access, file size limit from pc (5mb)and locking the phone to a poor service that frequently cant connect. I will not be putting any more credit in it. 3 are going bust and as far as im concerned the sooner the better. Vodafone are prob taking it over or at least have made an offer.

memory cost more than phone and roughly 50% on top of what simmlar capacity compact flash card would cost. You also need a card reader in your PC or an external one. That thirty quid phone is going to cost you around seventy-five smackers.
Hmm this phone is actually one of those corporate gangrape of da public things..
I bought for not much at da carphone warehouse only to find they hadn't included a USB wire ... which I presumed in my naivety to be naturally part of the package......otherwise it is a bit cumbersome but okie .. would give it a 4/10 as compared to the equivalent Sharp and Motorolla phones, which are a bit better.
i like the phone its great value,i need info on what memory stick duo to use.
i see sony,you ask a salesman & they have no idea
I have just purchaced 2 of the 313 phones and am very pleased with them the larg phone is not a problem as i have a nokia 6310 as a works phone , video is better than most as is the picture quality 640x480 the only problem i am currently having is the e mail via messages otherwise nice
