ooOOhhHH ,, dats aVERY fitest set i ever had used (lOOk at it , dashing classic slim an ideal set)
i am getting 1 now i ordered it 2day but i want it in black but they dont have none i am getting mine for 89euro thats about 55pound this phone seems good but what i dont like is that it doesnt have bluetooth or infra red
well i just got my nec343i today, i did'nt buy it on a whim i read all opinions and looked into imode very carefully!...end result??.......very pleased with my 343i, it looks good not cheap like some mobiles i've seen, ok so the camera is'nt brill but the preformance of imail more than makes up for it! anyway if you want a brill camera go and buy a digital one!! in fact i ended up nearly not getting one coz most shops had sold out!!!!!!!!!!!, if i had to have one gripe about it its the lack of memory space otherwise i'd give it 8/10 well worth the £79.99 i paid..now i can e-mail when on the move!! great!!!
im using this phone for more than a week by now. in my opinion, this phone is good for calling, sms'ing and i-mode. BUT, i do hear a weird background sound when im calling. does anyone else has the same prblem? and when i use handsfree, my friends will hear some echoing :(
So after all reviews casing and Imode is good.
But nobody seems to mention anything on battery and phonebook?
Just bought one from 02 in Ireland. Haven't used it much yet, but a few initial impressions:
-The case backing is metal, not plastic. Like an ipod. Really nice design overall.
-The imode features- Having used them to just look for a house to rent and check the news I think they're excellent!! I really hope the technology catches on over here, as the sites are designed to fit to phones, they're basic but useful!
-I was using imail within a few minutes of buying the phone!! One feature i've always wanted, e-mail directly to and from my phone, as easy as texting!
-The camera is not as high end as is available on better phones these days..but as good as your average mid-price nokia/motorola phone.
-It has a usb port...for what, I'm not sure yet!
Thought I'd share my views.
Yesterday I fully intended to go onto contract and get myself a snazzy new Nokia phone from my local o2 shop. I'm really glad I didn't.
I took a look at the N343i and fell in love. It looks and feels beautiful. It did admittedly take me a few hours to get to grips with the unusual way of accessing features. But the imode email thing is fantastic.
My wife now just emails my mobile rather than texting and it comes through in an instant. At the moment I think replying is free until the end of December and it's brilliant. Even when they do start charging for access I think it'll still be cheaper than SMS.
Now, the downside is....
All this imode stuff if obviously new which inevitably means that some services will be buggy and it will take a while to iron out those problems.
The phone book is a bit annoying and seems to list o2 services above normal numbers. Which means if I'm trying to phone my wife I have to press down 20 odd times. Although if I have dialed her recently I could just press the call button and it will appear.
Overall though if you want a sexy little mobile with a basic camera (I never use mine) and fantastic email on demand - GET IT!
Hello, guys. Does anybody have this phone for more than 2 days? How is it? I really like its design but have doubts about its stability... Please help, I am going to buy it this sunday. Thanks in advance.
Can I just say imode is absolutely brilliant. Paid £60 for this handset purely because of imode and the design. imode is gonna take off big time, email is simple and easy and the content online is far superior to any wap based content. The handsets arent greart at the mo but the new Samsung will change that
hey, sorri about my dumb question, but any one know where i could get this online? thx for ur help
Hi, I just have few questions to ask.
I am deciding this and the Nokia 6030.
Nokia is good in ease of use and Long battery.
Some user reported 10 days of standby time without making any call.
So, How is the battery life of 343?
Is the menu fast? Or slow compare to nokia?
How many SMS can it store?
How many contracts can it store?
Does it store mutiple number in a Contract name?
How is the screen? I have heard many compliant about it being too small.
And how heavy is it? I see some us 70g but some site listed as 90g.
just got this phone today. still charging it....haha...it has got a nice design, and overall it's great for those who only need basic functions in a handphone :) 80 pounds, worth it in my opinion.
device specialist you suck you cannot i repeat it is not possible to delete imode as stored in software only way to get rid of imode is to break the handset and then that would be a silly thing to do imode is great anyway why would you want to get rid of it if its good enough for japan its gud enuf 4 us brits
My phone says "Total capacity: 1214kb". this is not much if i install different java apps and make pics (not to mention i normally have more than 250 contacts).
but i didnt buy this phone cus its functionality. i bought it for its beauty. i tried alot of phones in the past and they just got bigger and bigger so i went back to the good old days...i use my phones just for making calls and send sms.
overall review is good. its light and so thin. my friends and family quite like this phone too cus the design is so elegant. i first wanted to buy nokia 8800 but i think its too expensive. i bought this phone for only 100 euro with sim and simlocked, but luckily my line rental is the same provider so i dont have to unlock it :)
This handset can be used with pre-pay and post-pay sim cards. The settings for both of the above are stuck into the handset and it is not possible to edit or even delete the I-mode settings. If you ever manage to delete these (supposedly impossible), O2 cannot send the settings as they are stored in the phone like concrete and cannot be re-entered.
Does anyone know the capacity of the internal memory?
Since it has video recording capability, it should have at least 10MB of internal memory
Anyone know? please
I was not expecting a decent camera, but this is without doubt the worst camera I have ever seen on a phone, which is a shame because some of the old NEC's have decent cameras. My main complaint was stability... unless I just happened to get a fauly unit.
I did want infra red though (or at least some way to connect it to a pc). Spec on here lists it, but is obviously a misprint.
If you just want a reasonable phone and are not bothered about ir or a camera, it's very good (assuming you don't get a faulty one too), certainly better than Nokia's 6030 etc.
Prepay i-mode handsets will not work correctly with O2 contract sim cards, and vice-versa. This is due to the way settings are installed in to the handsets.
Also it's pointless complaining about the camera, this phone is not meant for people who want a brilliant camera, its meant for people who want an easy to use, fairly basic and practical handset with a good battery life. It's good at what it does, if you want a fantastic digital camera, go to Dixons and buy one!
Bought this on O2 prepay yesterday and took it back today.
Screen quality is poor, camera is pathetic and there is no infra red. Also had problems such as freezing, screen blanking and I managed to start the camera and take a photo without the screen changing from standby!
Shame really as it's quite nice to use.
