I have just managed to transfer MP3 to the 411i using funnily enough the Nokia MultiMedia player. Once you convert the MP3 to amr files below 100k you can then set as ringtones. Grrr! :o) Nice phone apart from that. Don't like the way you can't disconnect the IMode, which is OK while service is free, but I keep pressing Imode button instead of phonebook..!
I will never buy anything but Nokia again! Its a nightmare for MP3s as ringtones, no space to save anything and whats with this "Flat View" thing, why not just show us everything thats on the thing all the time?! Doh 18 month contract :(
Ordered usb cable re Russ's cheaper recm' and stil awaiting delivery.
Phone seems ok so far but some speach/signal break up ?
Unable to connect to WAP on Orange using onboard profile - 'malformed URL'?
Orange won't help with settigs because they don't sell phone!
Can anyone help?
im just about to get this phone. can anyone tell me if you can or cant transfer data from phone to phone or not. When you first buy the phone how many games, ringtones etc is there. And is it a good value for money phone as i have got confused by other posts!!!
Does anyone know how many text messages can be stored on the NEC e540?
Hi Folks i am just trying to work out how to connect my n411i to my laptop to transfer data can install the software but seen unable to transfer data any help would be gratefully appreciated
just got this phone one for me and the wife good phone for the cost has got what i wanted usd got from nec direct and soft ware easy to down lode from sites. i think for the money is ok
In order to use mp3 as ringtone: Go 'My data', select MP3, select MP3 file you have saved, press MENU, then select 'Use item', select 'Set as ring tone'.
Then Change your setting in Phone modes>Normal/Meeting/etc> press edit, select Ringer>select MP3.
im just try to express my whole thing by using the Nec e 540 for the good contact but i just try to use my Tanzania Chip Card i see accepted but yhe only one thing in Phone book names are not accept to use it
Can someone please tell me the message capacity on the NEC e540?! Thanks/
Just bought this phone. It's excellent. I've never had a mobile before but in a couple of hours I'd worked out all the basic's, like changing wallpaper, sounds, ringtones etc. Using the address book and filling it in easy. Sending my first texts and getting replys easy too. This phone is good value for the price.Looks good. Nice screen too and plenty of icons to make it seem busy not confusing. Would have liked the usb cable supplied but small gripe. After one day I feel I should have had this a long long time ago. But since it's new, I'm glad I bought this phone.
In case Info is needed there is only 28MB of onboard memory and as an MP3 player this is not even enough for a full album. It can't be upgraded to a larger amount and it's a pity a flash or memory stick upgade feature wasn't included. As I'm not interested in it for mp3 music, I don't really mind.
Thanks, Russ, I ordered USB cable from the Link, downloaded software from NEC Europe
Then no problem sending mp3, picture, contacts to and from my computer!
You can change your ringtone very easily, from Setting>Phone modes>Normal mode>edit>Ringer, then you can change in other modes (Meeting mode etc).
Anyway, I'm super-happy with this phone!
Well done NEC!
Only one thing: Carphone warehouse did not send me the 'special envelope' for trade-in my old handset...the envelopes are run out apparently! They advised me to go to one of their shops, but it would cost me! I emailed them to send it, but they replied that it would take 7 days to reply me!
how do you change the ringtone, i know it is a stupid question but i don't know?
A big disappointment.Can't find any screensavers, graphics etc already on it.Features not well-organised.I will definitely stick to Nokia in future!
Hi again, i have got the phone, £59.99 form carphone warehouse on orange with £10 credit! Its a wicked phone looks really good, works well so far! Easy to use menu and handy "desktop" icon links to quickly flick to regual destinations like camera. Only worry is it its hardish to text on, supose my fingers will get used to it! OVerall very good phone tho gona get a data cable for it now using one of the links earlier posted. Hope this has helped! Dan
The Nec N411i is a terrible phone, no point having bluetooth on it at all as you cant do anything with it, its horrible to use and i really have not got on with it at all. not a user friendly phone !
Bought an E540 at the weekend for both myself and the wife and we're pleased with the phone. I have one question that I'm hoping someone might be able to answer. The LED was originally flashing on mine when the phone was on but the cover was closed but that appears to have stopped. It lights up OK when a call or message comes in and my wife's is OK in all aspects. Have I changed a setting without realising it? Can't seem to find any mention of the LED in the manual apart from changing the colour for calls, SMS & MMS. Hope someone has the solution. Thanks.
the bluetooth is for headsets only, not for data transfer phone to phone. heloooooo!!!!!
i bought this phone today in car phone ware house with the impression that it has the ability to transmit (via blue tooth) phone to phone only to find after alot of phone calls that it doesn't. im really ticked off as the guy who sold it to me knew what i wanted in a phone and recommended it, im well aware that i had the chance to read the spec on the box but there was nothing stated to imply that it required a blue tooth head set. im going to bring it back tomorrow because this is nothing but a glorified camera phone which i already had and the camera isnt very good quality either for all the hype about it. so i advise anyone reading this whos thinking of buying one to realize that yes this phone is too cheap for all the so called spec!
