NEC e616 NOT receive text messages from a T610 on Tmobile But will receive voice calls and pictures.
However, T610 on Tmobile will receive voice and text from the same NEC e616.
Seems the system is designed to get you to use the most expensive options for communication.

Got this phone about 3 months ago. Haven't experienced the major problems that most users here write about (unable to play media, short battery life etc.) apart from a couple of lock ups where I had to turn it off and "reboot" it. (Then again, that sounds like any Windows OS user, right?)
Not bad. It does the job for a relatively cheap price. Don't have a problem with the 3 network, either. (As a prepaid customer I kinda don't mind getting double my money in credit.) My only real beef with it is the keys are small, and sunken into the phone. With a flip cover, they're near impossible to press accurately without using a nail for the job. A real pain in the ass when it comes to playing games or doing calculations.
Ok since everyone is so confused about NEC and 3 phones hence i guess i should break some news to you.
There is only one software that can unlock NEC phones remotely, but its only for temporary use. That means everytime you switch it off, you will have to enter all the codes again to unlock it. You guys can email me and i can send the code for the temporary unlocking for all the NEC phones.
If you want to unlock it permanently then you will have to do it using cables.
By the way, to my ozzy friend, who was saying something about us POMMIES. Well may be in australia they havent restricted unlocking, but in UK they have made it near impossible to unlock. If 3 company made it easy to unlock then us pommies could have unlocked ages ago, certainly lot quicker than you ozzie kangroos. Hence dont write random comments about something which you aussies dont even understand. Go and have a foster, that will help you understand.
Take care everyone.

I spent an hour to read all the opinions and complains on NEC e616v. I was going to buy one for someone's Christmas present, but now, I doubt it. And I want to ask a few questions about this phone:
1. Can I use it abroad, like other parts of the world?
2. What is it all about the unlocked code?
3. Is the reception (dialling and receving calls) ok?
..so...Can someone give me any suggestions whether i should buy it or not? please e-mail me to help me out.
Can anyone tell me if you can use Vodaphone PAYG sim cards in the E616v. Have just bought one and as most people dont like the 3 network. Hope to get unlocked in the next week or two.
has anyone gone to Offtel to report this deal ? £15 voucher but get ready for £15 per month. A lot of dissapointed 3g users this crimbo me thinks - RIPP OFF
Was very tempted to buy this phone as a gift for somebody this Christmas - after spending 20 mins and reading some reviews - it sounds more like a present for Halloween - trick rather than treat!
Pay as You Go but £15 a month???
Get Real 3G !!
Looks like you poms are up to your usual whining or the 3 network in your country is just so shiite that it just a shame that you have to spend money on something that dosen't work. (been there done that).Here in oz I or my mates have not had a problem with either the phone or the network.(touch wood) I am very happy with both and it didn't take long to learn the in's and out's of the phone. I make sure i back everything up on my PC every week just incase something does happen. I have a 128mb sony memory stick in the phone and back it up also. Hope you guys & 3 UK can sort these problems out because i hate to see such bad reviews from a product I think is great. WORKS 4 ME.
