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
Answer to jahan
1.About 120-130 with latest FW around 200
3.2 num. per one name also notes e mail adress,street adress etc etc
4.I don`t have any signifacant delays but latest FW would certenly solve this problem if any delays occour
Thanks for the reply.
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
i'm very interested in e398, n have a couple of question. Could anyone pls share about:
1. The max SMS can be saved on phone
2. if photo can be displayed when someone call
3. The number of info can be saved in 1 name (office, home, etx)
4. After upgrading firmware, does the delay fixed?
Sorry if my question has been asked bfore. Thanks a lot
ahaha! looks like you're getting crapped by a few smart moto users here!
i've been reading this thread for the past month as i am planning to buy myself this phone and it didn't take me a masters degree nor a user's manual, nor handling the phone itself, to figure out the six "0"'s! :P
anyway, my advice to people who'll be reading jim's post is that let us forgive him for not being able to read the manual or doing a little research. i guess he's pretty fed up with reading from all the years he has spent trying to get smarter.
I found out your problem when you copy and past the website from the forum to the address bar it comes out like this
Instead of this
Just remove the %AD near the end and it should work. Sorry for that.
Security code is 000000 (six 0's) by default
Unlock code is 1234 by default
LOL ROFLMFAO, Sorry just had to get that off my chest.
One the phone isn’t user friendly it is you are used to a Nokia. It is like going from a PC to a Mac for the first time.
Two the head set is easier then a Nokia to plug in just open the rubber guard on the top of the phone then plug it in like you would a standard 2.5mm jack for an MD, iPod, Discman ect.
Three voice tags simple go to phone book put entry in phone memory (not simcard), then go edit, voice name, record voice name, then you’re done.
For bluetooth security code read replay to huh.
All those degrees and you ant read English or Arabic. (Referring to the owner’s manual that tells you haw to operate the phone.)
Before criticizing make sure you have your facts straight or you will look like a drop kick and be upstaged by a 16yer old who hasn’t finished high school yet Mr. 2 Masters degrees and the MD of an engineering company.
hey jim, all i can tell you as an old nokia user(about 9 years), u really impressed us here with the degrees u'r holding but i'd call anyone a moron simply who can not plug the headset to the headset jack ;) moto interface might not be user friendly to you cuz it's been your choice to use nokia always only that shows u have no vision, and are back minded. Once you realize what you've been missing out there, others will be in diff. dimensions already. Btw, i'm an eng. too (which is so stupid to state in a froum like this) if it's gonna make u feel better.

i, on the other hand, hadnt have had any problem what so ever with this phone. Good value for money
I've used okia all my life. Today I bought a Motoroal E398...Arrrgghhhhh !!! big mistake. This must be the most user "unfriendly" phone \i have ever seen and used. It comes with a head set that you can't plug in. I've been trying all day now to attach a voice tag to some numbers, cannot do. \i've tried to attach to my bluetooth, asks for pin number. Told it is 0000. Guess what!!!! it's not. I've had this phone 15 hours now. It's being exchanged tomorrow for another Nokia. for the record, I hold 2 Masters degrees and am the MD of an engineering company. I supply 45 company phones, 44 of which are Nokia. \i was thinking of changing to Motorola but guess what.....\i don't think so. Ciao : )
Hey can anyone recommend me good sites to download games for the E398?Please I really need your help,I have gotten bored of the pre-installed games already.
They should but they won't for a while! It's in their interest to bring out a new phone making us all pay more =(
I noticed that the new V8 can support video recording.
Motorola should provide a software update to enable video recording for e398.
I bought this phone together with the bluetooth wireless headset on Sunday through an agent . After charging it i tried connecting the phone to the bluetooth but then it asked for a PIN no. (i was told its 0000 (default)). but then when i key in the no. it says invalid PIN. so i took the phone back to the agent the next day and he says i must send to the customer service center.So i send it there and guess what they say they cannot repair the phone and if i want a new phone i have to wait for 1 MONTH !!! Crap i traded in my old phone for this and now i have to wait for 1 MONTH for the phone!!!! AAaarrrrrgggg :( what can i do?
Yes they should work or a game similar
Yes it does support email, multiple numbers under the one name, speed dial, voice name but no adress as far as i know.
