work for 02,kitsch little phone,won 5 in a promo with NEC (future modern day antique,HA,HA)
alright,,after 2-3 months of befriending with this NEC phone..one word..useless!not up to date with today's mobile-phone-suppose-to-be condition!unless u only want to phone out and receive calls solely..don't wish to do anything more with it!
I ve got a few tips here tackling the probs with this phone model:
1) If you find yourself couldn't change the ringtone,just rename the name of the ringtone you want, then change it!
2)the phone finds no signal if you place it in pocket or slightly enclosed place..TIP:just place it in the open air!
3) It will get jammed whenever you switch the camera in full mode..so..TIP:let it stay the way it is...don't switch it to Full screen! You have to get battery out to restart it.
4)..just get another phone with white colours..Sony Ericsson!
I just bought it 5 days ago, my opinion:
+Good sound quality
+Quite simple to use
+Multi-Alarm scheddulable by day of the Week
++Data cable is a regular USB connection, I use my MP3 player's cable with Nec's drivers
+Application assignation to key
-Modes are not user friendly
-Lot of useless icons on the screen
- .wav not usables for ringtones
- poor quality and choice in the factory ringtones
final opinion : I did not choose this one, I had to change my phone and no money for it, good phone for the price ^^, the camera is not to bad, if you don't move
I have tried to change the ringtone but whatever I do itwon't acceopt it. HELP
Has anyone found that you cant get a signal with this phone in places where other mobiles have no problems. Very disappointing.
want a FREE wallpaper?!
go on to google.co.uk and select image and type what you want - then press menu and save the picture and it will store it in pictures under data!!
does anyone know how to change your imail address? can't find the book
Has anyone noticed that the top half of the phone seems to get hot and the screan go pale when used for a call for more than 5 mins? just wondering if maybe its just mine thats faulty?????
to frenchinuk try turning off any firewalls then detect phone then turn the firewalls back on that worked for me.
seems a good phone, ships with a headset. But does anyone know if I can synch this thing with my mac?
Although I have a very good phone (Motorola Rz V3),as soon as I saw the NEC 343i whilst browsing I knew I wanted it as it looked good and the price tag was unbelievably affordable. I received my phone 2 days ago and I love it! The design is sleek and the cool blue backlight is hip!
I am very angry to see reviews from people who moan about the fact that it doesn’t have video or Bluetooth. What do you expect for 40 pounds? It’s very simple: if you want top of the range technology then spend 200+ pounds! I think it’s good enough to have a camera for that price although it is true its quality is poor. However, as others mentioned, if you press 2 on your keypad which is the night mode you will notice a considerable improvement.
My only disappointment so far is the ringtones, the choice is limited (only 10 on mine…I thought it was supposed to be 40?) and they’re all as bad as eachother. I have tried to download 4 times the Manager and Driver softwares to be able to download tones from my PC but without any success. Basically I can open the manager but the “phone to PC” and “PC to phone” icons are grey and still, I cannot click on them. The problem seems to be the USB cable (although I tried with two different ones), the phone cannot be detected for some reason because of that connection. I wonder if anyone has had the same problem and managed to resolve it? Or if there are any experts on the subject who could help, let me know, thanks!
Is the N343i deliverd with a headset?
Thanks in advance.
really stylish and easy to use. bought it on pay and go a few weeks ago. what can i say....i think this phone is great and because only o2 do them in the uk there isnt that many of them about which is nice.
You need a driver as well as the USB cable to connect the phone. The drivers are found if you search through these opinion pages. It saves people's time and is much better if you people just search to see if your question has already been answered before you ask it again. Eurgh. Otherwise you will simply get NO ANSWER.
Why is everyone on here complaining about the poor quality of the camera? Shut up and just press '2' on the keypad whilst in camera mode. That'll improve the image for you.
Is it a stadard USB cable to connect the phone ?I can't connect it!!!
