the site u gave me for the firmware upgrade is not in english so i cannot read it, besides how do i upgrade it ?, what's the process. does there have to be reception when u transfer files onto the motoe398 ??
cause sometimes musicfiles cannot be transfered
yeah, of course u can connect to computer by bluetooth.
to connect phone using windows98: add new hardware and install motorola modem driver from cd. Remove memory card and then connect phone. So dont install just the phone tools, u must do this separatly.
but windows should see the phone memory card when u connect the phone with the card in it...
To Antonini-what do you mean by video? do you need video recording or do you just need Video playback? If you only need playback, this is a great phone for that.
plan to buy e398 as a bday gift for myself... all i want is a fone where i can transfer mp3 sounds from my computer and have video. shall i follow my instinct? enlighten me...
I'm so lost about the self flashing and upgrading thingy. Ha... Anyway, think this phone rocks. Nothing is perfect and this is the best phone I've owned so far. It's in the same league as N6230 and SE K700i but it costs so much lesser. In S'pore, at least. Really worth the bucks.
i am currently using windows 98.
what is a service pack....
i don think i have any... i just installed the mobile phone tools provided by Motorola....
Actually, this is one of the most reliable phones I've ever had...compared to my old Nokias, this one hasn't shut itself down ever...not once! And I have no proglems with bluetooth, the screen, or anything...
can motorola service center detect self flash/flex mobilephone? just to make sure b4 flexing/flashing my e398. :)
erm..i heard dis fon got lotz of problem izzit??
i plan 2buy dis fon but i got 2fren using it n they said de fon will auto restart wen open too many application. besides that, they bluetooth oso got problem..after receiving file den will auto dc..izzit??
can sum1 tell me whether izzit worth 2buy dis fon..
What windows are you running and do you have any service packs installed.
To upgrade your phone go here
And yes the phone does support FM radio but you need to buy a FM radio headset from moto. Here in Australia they are around $80 and the U.K £20
how do i upgrade my firmware?, does motorola e398 support fm radio, if so how does it work, Motorola e398 is a sick phone guys :)
Just got this phone.....
but i cannot seem to connect this phone to my computer....everytime i connect using the usb.My comp. says it detects a new hardware and needs the driver file. I have installed the mobile tools software but still this problem persist....hm....
A MMC card is different to a trans flash a SD card is like a large trans flash. When you buy the phone it comes with an adaptor to make the transflash into a SD card. If you have a SD reader/writer you can use this to transfur file to and from the card.
hi, can anyone pls tell me asap is the trans flash card same as MMC/SD card? can i use MMC/SD card on tis phone? pls pls pls reply me !!
You can flex your phone yourself to 7f and still have 96R and you can flah your phone to 95R. All you need is PST and this website
As for the driver for win98 i dont no hoe to otain one do a google search or upgrade your PC's OS.
Yes you can connect your phone via bluetooth all you need i a bluetooth adaptor or a notebook/PC with bluetooth built in.
To nonoi they use different cables but like someone else said it comes with one if you buy it brand new in box
just got my E398, but can not find this menu,
i have tried all sorts but can not find the Ring Styles option anywhere.
i want to adjust the keypad volume to off but can not.
Apart from this a great phone...
Crap! ive upgraded my phone to 96r in the service center... but they dont flex! now im stuck with 96R/E5 w/c btw a crappy combination. Can i still flash my phone to 95R when im at 96R? oh and where can i find a driver for the storage mem, (win98) Thanx people!!
to Sorcerer; E398 is a better phone than k700. K700 is only a little smaller with video recoring but E398 has external memory slot (that k700 has only 40MB memory-limited to that), and stereo speakers with 3D sound, the k700i menu lags a bit, E398 battery last much longer than K700 cuz E398 has better battery plus E398's rf is better, too. However, they both are nice phones with little adv. and disv. It's all matter of personal choice at the end.
Thanks alot for the info.... i'll try that out... really appreciate your help and advice... Cheers!
