Well, I'll be getting my NEC on Monday and will be using it on the 2G network. I'll tell you how CRAP it really is...since I believe it's the 3 Networks fault and not the phones.
My friend had a 606 before, and it worked just fine on the 2G networks. So I'll see how my 616 will go and I'll write later.
the three network is so shit can anyone please tell me how to UNLOCK the e616v phone
if you can unlock the nec e616 plz email me email@example.com
and tell me exactly how to do it
i was going to buy this phone when i saw it for 45 quid in argos BUT then i found out that you have to pay £15 a month?? whats all that about!! pay as you go, thats just like a contract... but they swith the phone of if you dont pay it?? 3 you need to get rid of that 30 day valdity thing cuz its CRAP!
can n e 1 help me on where to find the software to enable me to download music on my 616 fone plz.....
What a s@@t manufacturing!!! I got my phone unlock yesterday and when I started using it the mic was dead. No body can hear me through the phone. I can't record and voice with sound recorder. I used the headset n nothing changed. Called back Carphone and got it replaced I tested the mic and it was ok I did not know about other problems. Now I had to send it back to Networkunlocking.com to get it unlock again but Thanks God they lowered the price into 5 pounds the total will be 10 inc. Special Delivery.
If you live near Ipswich (England) there is a shop there that can unlock NEC phones, if you have a data cable goto "www.thermal.no.sapo.pt" and use the calculator to get an unlock code.
Or goto the NEC website forum it had loads of codes on it
I've had the same promlem as every body else, it turns it's self off, cuts out in the middle of calls, poor reception, you name it i'm now on my 4th phone and can't wait for my contract to end. The only good thing i can say about the phone is the free internet service.
FINALLY, I UNLOCKED IT.
It's as simple as this. It will cost you 15 pounds.
go to www.networkunlocking.com
sent them my handset on Wend. by Special Delivery got it today at the very early morning also by Special Delivery
Now I am free !!!
But what a shame it doe not communicate via a bluetooth :(
plz sum1 help me unlock my NEC e616 fone i h8 da 3 network its 2 expensive i want 2 go on da virgin network its soooo much betta plz email me if der r ways 2 unlock it!!!!!!
They will tell you jack all about this phone in the shops, take notice of the reviews on here and don't buy it if you like sharing files by bluetooth, it has V1.0 where most bluetooth phones have V1.1 (Big difference). 3 have done it again in picking a technologically substandard phone. It's slow, it crashes, it can't play Mp3's (well mine can't), the pc software is useless etc etc etc...get the hint. 3 are a waste of time, always have been, and IMHO always will be, I'm going across to Vodaphone as soon as I get the cash.
Have owned an E616v for a couple of weeks now, a few points (negative first)...
* Although it plays MP3's you cannot set one as a ringtone - poly tones only
* Bluetooth only connects with a headset - does not communicate with other mobiles etc
* Battery life is rather short
* Camera quality and video playback is pretty good
* Voice quality quite high (when in good reception area)
* Finally, NO, THIS PHONE CANNOT BE UNLOCKED TO ANY REASONABLY USABLE STANDARD AT PRESENT. STOP BUYING THEM OFF EBAY OR YOUR MATE IN THE PUB UNLESS IT COMES WITH A USEABLE 3 SIM AND YOU ARE HAPPY TO BE ON 3'S NETWORK
Well I have come to know this phone when I lost my Nokia 6600 in London. I went on Edgware Road looking for the cheapest phone and I have come across a shop which introduced me to the phone and advised me to buy it from Argos and come back to unlock it for 8 pounds. She said she was going to send the phone to another shop to unlock it becoz no body knows how to and it'd take one days. Unfortunately, I had to return home the same day and now I bought it from CarfoneWH and I wish I get back to this shop !!!PLeasE any body leads us to unlock it!
you can get a memory card for the 616 from camera shops make sure its a sony dual one prob cost £30 more than the price of the phone which alaways crash or no coverage i wish they had put that in their adverts about the coverage then people would have second thoughts
No please I implore any potential future buyers, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PHONE! I've had problems with mine from day one. Now it won't even start (its 6 months old!) and 3 will not replace it, they won't even replace it when you have problems the minute you walk out of the shop! I have 2 other friends whoose phones are constantly being "repaired" to stuff up again the minute they are home. I should have known when a guy bought his back to the shop while I was buying mine! Stay away from this phone, believe me the gimmicks aren't worth it!
As for 3 in Australia, yes the 3 plans are cheap but now that vodaphone and optus are offering the $79 plans as well I'd be sticking with them. 3 calls constantly drop out and u end up using all your free $ in flag falls when you have to ring the same person 4 times to have a 5 minute conversation, and as for their flagfall waiver if you dial back within 15 secs...well who has been able to get the phone to work within 15 secs after its disconnected you! Don't buy this phone and don't connect to 3!!
The Link Is Selling The Phone For £29.99 Save some cash get it fae there. Does anyone Know were i can buy the memory Card for it ???
Anyone on line at present that owns an NECe616? - what do you think? ARGOS are selling them for £44.99 for pay as you go on '3'. On paper itlooks a bargain. But have read some bad reviews about them. The main problem seems to be the MP3 player. I have reserved one and will probably buy it tommorow. Am I doing the right thing? Can I unlock it and put my Vodaphone sim in it. Please help with advice. Glyn
