the reason it cuts out between calls is because its changing between the '3' coverage areas.. didnt anyone read it.. or i suppose everyone went and bought it without know its limitations...read your fucken manuals people.. i've had this phone for about 3 weeks and have had not one problem with it at all..
Doe´s anybody know how and where I can download upgrades for that pies of shit they call a phone ???
Yep Jeff I noticed the same. Which kinda defeats the purpose of using your phone alarm to wake you in the morning if they recommend you charge your phone while it is off (which is usually more practical overnight)
Bought my e616v in Denmark last saturday. For me ACPU:A125.56.07 CCPU:C623.ROV.
The 5 alarms don't work if the phone is switched off which is very annoying. Anyone having the same problem?
Does anyone know that the latest version of the firmware for the phone in Denmark is? I have ACPU: A025.43.04 CCPU: C623_R06.
My battery charger cable, or the part of the phone it plugs into is rooted already.
Perhaps this is why we get a spare cable too huh.
Anyone else have a dodgy cable?
damn i just ordered the phone with 3, and then decided to read reviews, but it is the only flip they do with Bluetooth, doh. Waiting for delivery so i can test it, as for the battery i guess that is why it's sold with 2 batteries
I'm told you can get upgrades down for this phone. My friend has his upgraded just the other week to iron on some of the problems. If in Perth, you can go to Osborne Park to get it fixed. Just ring 3 tech support for the place I guess. I'm yet to find out the exact place so I can take my phone in too.
Has anyone else had probs with not being able to dial out, but you have full bars to indicate reception is perfect? And then if you get someone to call you, it will go straight to voicemail?
Grrrr to the reception and lying bars
Bought the phone 3 days ago, it is a cool design on the phone NEC e616, but the battery lifetime is a JOKE, it says in the specs a lifetime on 44 hour but for me it can only last 7 - 8 hour on the standard 780Ah battery.
can you please tell me where i can get wallpapaers for this bloody phonex
i hav dis shit 4 a month now n i bght it here in australia it really suks battery is like hav 2 carry a box wid u, memory card is dem expensive here compared to da value of the mobile, callin n video calls r shit, tis jus a piece of shit but hav 2 go on wid it coz am on a plan. luks gud from da cover but a shit box in true
I love the phone I really do, but the more I use it the more it lets me down, it turns itself off mid way through calls, that's if the battery has lasted long enough to make a call !! today after the mic stopped working, went to bed fine, morning dead, so it's back to the shop it must go ! any one else had this happen ... oh and when typing texts and emails the screen keeps blanking out and stalling ... all in all a fab phone ! keep up the good work NEC
and WHEN the update, fixs are released PLEASE let me know where I can get them done !!!
I haven't got anything to say about this phone if its fucking battery doesn't last so short
Update: Spoke with 3 Denmark and they have update being tested that will fix most of the problems listed above - so they say ;-)
Bought my phone in Denmark 2 weeks ago. It looks great works ok mostly but annoys the hell out of me with the following bugs:
1. MP3s unstable: I have two 128MB Memory Stick Duos. I filled up one with a bunch of songs and started listening away. The first day I'm listening to it it stopped halfway through the playlist and gave a "File could not be played" error. Ok, I thought, bad file, continued playing. The next day I was on the Metro again and this time 4 files suddenly could not be played that worked fine the previous day. 3 days later none of the files could be played and I thought the card was bad. I got home stuck the other card in, made a new playlist (I'll get to that in a minute). Now a week later the exact same crap is occuring with the other card. However if I transfer the files back to my pc they play fine - this sucks as I really like the concept of the phone as an MP3 player.
2. Making a playlist: Does anyone know of a way to select multiple MP3's at a time when making a playlist on the phone as opposed to adding one at a time? You'd think they would've added that feature!!!
3. Bluetooth is useless.
4. Battery life is atrocious - one 5 minute video call eats half the battery life. I carry the charger around all the time. Was late for work this morning because the phone ran out of power and the alarm didn't sound.
5. Cell info display: How do you turn off Cell info display? I have two ugly 3 numbers appearing...
If anyone else is getting the same probs with MP3 playback and has a solution please let me know.
This NEC e616 phone is beautiful but useless. Java games downloadble but pay to play. Ringtones rubbish, video max 30sec,volume not high and worst of all, phone cut middle of conversation, before reconnecting caller, really pissed of with it. Sending phone back to dealer and inform '3'; I have told them they may lose clients very soon if this phone and their service do not improve. I have told all my friend not to bother subscribing or buying this phone. Better go to another network.
A very dissastified '3' customer.
