Like someone else said,the camera is blurry and dark.It's hard to see and the only thing tht is good about it is it's oppearence.
i hate this phone. the camera is so dull and blurry you cant make anything out! The only good thing going for it is the appearance. it's mono ringtones!! i mean how dated.
I just can't stand the people on here that complain about the lack of bluetooth, more memory etc. What the HECK do you expect for £50? This phone is absolutely wonderful; there is no doubt about that. If you want your bluetooth and memory space, get a bloody Samsung Z320i.
ive got this mobile 1 day ago but i have some problems with the camera. is usb cable included in the pack please let me know
chris..forget writing them. Get hold of 'NEC mobile Suite' for N343i and a cable and download them to your phone.. ps free ringtones here http://www.miditext.ru/midi/d.html
can anyone tell me the order i should press the keys in whilst using the composer to make well known tunes. as i dont want to spend money downloading them - these companies are evil.
if you can help it would be appreciated.
Ive had many, many phones over the years, usually high end ones and i love gadgets, but this mobile phone i paid £29.99 for has made me very happy. i actually gave up a contract on 3 to use this phone. if you treat it as a communication device and not an entertainment device, its the dogs b*ll*ox!.
the imode email is so good. the ability to send an recieve email in a very straightforward and quick way is excellent. you get your own email address and you can change it at any time in settings. i also use google mail as my web based email account and ive set it to forward a copy of the email to my imode email, so i get all my emails on my phone. no downloading them, they just pop up like a text or mms would. i ive been looking for a phone like this for years. i love the styling. its the whole reson for me choosing the phone. i love the functional, minimal european look. id love it more if it was all metal and the screen was glass. still, it dosent feel cheap and its a complete pleasure to look at, hold and use. it feels reassuringly solid without being too heavy. I hate the blue light under the keyboard though. makes it luck tacky. luckily, you can switch it off.the keypad key size and functional design makes it very easy to use for texting and emailing.
this phone is for purists. the type of people who like to be a little bit different. the type of person who wants a mobile phone and email device and does'nt care for all the whistles and bells. to be honest, i think they should remove the camera on the next incarnation. give it a better screen resolution,add blootooth and more memory and you'd have a dam near perfect phone. btw...is 02 going to roll out the black version does anyone know?
the price of this is ridiculous. buy it now before its deleted. at £30, im going to buy another one in case i loose or damage this one. id be upset if i could'nt get hold of another one. i want it for life, if not always for my main phone then as a secondary one for social occasions.
use this link to get from 02 site for £29.99.
can anyone help? seem to have trouble connecting to my i-mode, when i try it just says connection failed, does any one know what im doing wrong?
Hahah, I just found a fool-proof way of installing this thing without error.
1) GO TO: http://www.nec.ru/mobile.html
2) download 2nd one down (14.7mb)
3) Unzip and browse to HM_uk > anglaise > USBHmgr > N343i_usb > setup.exe
4) After the short install, plug in phone, PC will detect.
5) Choose manual install driver option and when told to choose a location...
6) ...Go to USB-Device-Driver > MA-2000 folder in previous mentioned anglaise folder
7) The 'OK' button will stop being greyed out and you can click it.
8) Let it run and THEN you can open the N343i Handset Manager (from start menu > programs)
This should remove your headache!!
I-mode is meant to be free on O2 for now...I got mine today and the promotion says it's free for a limited period
Well..i got it off 02 online shop...it was 79 euro i got it,for the sake of changing to a coloured and polyphonic phone.
i am not really into a=lot-of-functions phone,this one is so-so, except the fact that it can't receive any WAP sent ringtone or watsoever, really puts me off...i can only go online using the so called i-mode and spent a fortune later when i check the balance without downloading anything at all...or just stick with the ringtones set on the phone...chic phone but sad one!! ^=^
So this HAS got USB right??
Also, does this phone have quite a few menu "hangs"??
To get a nearly normal ringtone use i mode.
From the menu go to Music & Downloads, select SUPER RINGTONE, scroll down to MENU, select 'free' ringtones then select ANTIQUE PHONE RINGING 2, then download. It should save in your sounds folder. Sounds not bad when set to max volume. It will only cost you the price of the browser time.
this phone is absolute rubbish, all i want is as normal ringtone for my poor mother who has to contend with some horrendous polyphonic gargage when the phone rings, for those of us who just want to know the phones ringing and not look really sad with some daft wee choon, how on this earth do i get a normal ringtone???....(without a usb to my PC)
The password should have been sent to the email
you've provided during the registration ...
I bought a NEC 342i mobile phone in Roterdam psat October 2005. Once returned back home to Cape Verde islands I found out the phone is locked. I wish someone could recommend me on how to proceed to de-lock it. In fact, people says there is no driver available to reapir the situation.
Can anyone tell me how to download the software to connect the phone to my pc. I have tried to register with the French NEC site as mentioned in an earlier post but I can't seem to get a password to get any further.
I like the phone, looks good, solid, like the blue LED keypad, big keys for easy text, camera looks below average, pity about the ringtones. I bet the person who picked them has shares in ripoff ringtone sites because the first thing your going to do when you buy this phone is download decent ringtones.
Decent value for money with the i mode chucked in.
WOW!!! ...I just got this phone from amazon for £40 inc. postage! My sony erricson k750i phone ended up in the wash, and with no insurance i had to find a cheap replacement! ...So i went for this as it is the best looking budget phone!
I am very impressed, its easy to use, the whole build of the phone is very high quality, unlike most cheap phones i was expecting cheap tacky plastic bits, but it has got a solid structure and was plesently surprised! The picture on the screen is crystal clear which was also very pleasing, but most of all it is very simple to use!
The only thing this phone lacks is a good quality camera (although the camera pictures on the screen are fairly good quality 640x480), there isn't bluetooth which is a bit of a shame! and there is no mp3 support with the phone! ...However, if NEC put these three above features plus some extra onboard memory, this would easily equal any top of the range phone like the k750i, V.Happy with my purchase, we will just see if it stands the test of time!
Definatley by far the best budget phone out there, plus not many ppl have it so that is a plus aswell!!!
