hey! the e398 was a good phone which i had for over a year. it did fall apart quickly though from small things like the headphone cover(top of phone) to the camera lens. you might say that i thrashed it about but this is not true! excellent phone otherwise for features and accesories. bluetooth is a bit slow though. good phone only if u keep it for a few months!
Oh and my the way - check out E398Mod.com - that's a very nice site to begin modding
Best modding phone ever. You can do practically whatever you want with it's firmware and software. No other competitor is available
@@@@@@@ I've had this phone for a year now and it still works fine. Though the quality of the sound it produces when playing mp3 is a bit softer now than how it was, its still a pretty good mp3 phone.@@@ The vga camera sucks especially when you're shooting with poor lighting. Even the night-mode feature doesnt seem to work at all.@@@ Sturdiness...5. Overall Appearance (after a year)...4. Camera...2. MP3 sound quality...4. Charging and USB jack...1. (too loose). That's all.
best phone for mp3 music and fun.gsm arena is the best.hello from serbia
helo there, does anyone know whether its a normal thing that this hp cannot connect to the computer when it is set (data/fax connection) in settings (connection). this is bcoz i heard that mirror.softcox.com can upgrade this hp to E1 but the problem is mine cant connect to pc if set (data/fax connection). if using moto modder, where must i go to upgrade to E1? Thnx ...
this phone is lousy.problems with mp3s started after 8 months.gotta change a phone soon.
I have this phone for about 2 years and it's still has the best audio quality when comparing with other brands!

(But remember Updating your phones software is not just a one click process, you have to back up your phone using a program called P2K tools then you will have to back up the E398's software us a program called Flash-backup and one small error can stuff your phone)
The Rokr firmware update on your E398 not only gives you video recording and I-tunes but it also gives you features such as
-Much faster USB connection
-The ability 2 store Java apps to Transflash
-Better sound quality
-The update automatically deletes stock ringtones,pics etc giving you more memory
But if you read on motomodders.com and learn the tricks of the trade and how to customise ur E398 you can even
-Make speakers much,much louder and clearer
-Change Itunes Skins
-Seem edit (Change and tweak the phone's software)
-Lock Keypad by pressing menu+menu
-ITUNES WITH 1000 SONGS! (100 songs sucks!)
-Chang Start-up and Shut-Down animations
-Charge phone through USB cable
And Lots,Lots more
(updating firmware to Rokr E1 and software editing is not as easy as it sounds so before you go out and buy an E398 because you have heard from ppl that you can update it to a rokr e1, make sure you take look around on the net and read)
The site I suggest is
It will give you all the information you need and teel you where to downlad the Rokr E1 firmware!
Can anyone tell me how to copy all the numbers from the phone onto the sim, I can only do it one by on, is there anyway of doing all at once?
For all you ppl out there loking to update ur firmware (E398) Just got to www.motomodders.com
and follow the instructions!
