i recently purchased this phone for use with my cingular sim card. I changed all the IP settings to mirror that of my old motorola v400. It seems that i cannot access the internet or anything that requires GPRS. It keeps saying "GPRS network not available" so basically, all can do is phone calls and text messages. I dont have multimedia messaging, web access, or instant messaging. Any suggestions? Cingular does not offer this phone, although it does work on their network, so they are unable to offer me much tech support. Its ok to email me: email@example.com
Hold down the red phone located to the right of the joy stick.
Put songs on phone/trans flash and play them via sounds in multimedia menu. To change between Trans flash and phone memory hit the menu button when in sounds, switch storage device, phone/trans flash. Once you have found song you wish to play select it and sound will start being emitted from phone (head phones if plugged in.
There are many reasons this could happen, I have only had item fail while sending via BT from SE K700i. But tried start after failure and it worked. Possible that your or the other phones have dodgy BT or you are saving it to Phone memory and not TF card and the file is too large. Many other reasons could be causi9ng this problem. Keep trying and if the problem persists contact Motorola. (Unlikely it is the phone but possible)
Try installing virtual PC and see if it works or buy a PC/use friends.
This phone only has one problem and that is the small amount of lag it has on the original firmware. But upgrade and the phone is a dream. Price in fantastic features and looks are incredible. Best bag for buck phone on the market IMO.
have a big problem - i've an Apple G4 but motorola phone tools cd is compatible with PC only. so i cannot register it, nor DL anything for my phone. short of spending $200+ for apple compatible version of windows, how can i get this phone to work/play with my computer?
have tried many times to connect via BT dongle, but my comp refuses to "discover" any mobile phones. i went through OS X BT set-up assistant a dozen times & am on verge of giving this phone away ( since i've no use for its camera & MP3 player).
how do i make this phone show up on the list of devices?
do i have to have phone tools installed beforehand in order to connect via BT? i'm in USA & motorola helpdesk is clueless on how to help me, since this phone isn't sold here, although it works vwery well with t-mobile
I didn't have any problems transfering files to and fro using BT between my E398 n a N6230. Neither did I have any problems w a SE K700i. So I guess the BT is quite stable. And, the battery life for the E398 is quite lasting. Yeap.
ei everybody,,ive been trying to send a ringtone and mp3 to my E398,from a nokia and ericsson fone via bluetooth,but i cannot.it always fails...why is that???
how does the mp3 player work and i think that my e398 is a vary bad phone and needs to be better
i m planning to buy this phone but i read that the bluetooth is not working.... is it true???? can anyone tell me whether it is worth buying this phone or not.... tell me all the bad and good features of this phone...
I believe that i am too old for this type of phone. I have trouble reading the manual because i need new glasses and i don't know how to turn it on. Can anyone assist me with my dilemma?
Go to connections, USB connections, memory card. Windows should say portable media device detected then transfer via portable media drive. ie. Open removable disk via my computer, mobile, audio. Then drag and drop the file you want to copy into that folder.
MPT can only send files to phone so, if you send a file that is larger then the free memory in your phone it will not allow the file to send.
Use google to find application for the e398
You have to seem edit your phone so messages are stored on Trans flashes, resulting in more space. Use google to find the web site with the guide on seem editing.
Thanks for the information but where can i find those applications? Sorry if i sound annoying.
hi, is there a way that i could increase the number of messages that i could save in the inbox? right now i can only save 25 msgs while the outbox can store up to 60 or so msgs... i am more interested in my inbox memory capacity. can i change the settings? if so, how? pls help.
how do i transfer songs onto my moto e398??, everytime i transfer it says internal error, does the reception have to be over 50%in order to transfer?, does the mobile phone tools need internet to transfer as well ??
what is the exact site for the firmware upgrade cause i cannot see to get access to it.
Yes it can have applications put onto the phone.
The phone can only read mpeg4 and 3gp video formats. So mpeg will not work on phone.
Hiya, i've got the exact same problem as doink further down the page......could anyone please help....plus my computer doesn't often acknoledge my phone as being connected via usb????....Thanks in advance
i have had this phone for 4 months its quite a good phone inits self but connecting up to a computer is bad i got ride of a third party bluetooth because of the software wasnt blending in now i just bought a original motorola bluetooth device thinking this was going to connect although i paid a lot thinking it was going to be easy to install i am still having problems in connecting its put me off having the phone it was a bit of a competition between the k700i and the E398 at the time which just looks a rushed version of the phone im now after the sony p900i which seems a better phone put together

I actually put in 4 0's and 6 0's but both didn't work either. Anyway i have sent it to the service center.... They say they will change the whole internal board of my phone for me.... I just hope that they place the speakers and the camera correctly like the original phone... :(
I am curious about something, does this phone able to add new programmes?
I tried loading MPEG files from PC to Fone. Prior to doing this, I switched fone's storage device to trans (64MB small chip). It was a successful download, but cannot locate where the file is. I was successful in loading MP3 files and able to locate and play it using the fone but in video I can't. Anybody, please teach me. Thanks
