I just bought 4 E398 phones for myself, my wife and for my brothes a few days back. The most annoying thing about this phone is the screen where it turns very reddish even after I have send it for claims at Motorola Service Center. They Have change my LCD display twice and upgraded my software but the reddish is still there when there is any dark background. When I check with the motorola service center thay say that this particular model E398 has this display diffect where all E398 has the same problem. Is Motorola is going to do something about this major defect problem and replace the LCD screen for all the reddish display effected customers?? Other then that the phone is fantastic.It's like a BOOMBOX with loud tone and bass reflex feelings!!!!!
siemens cx65 or motorola e398?
which phone is better...
my friend have cx65 ..it's very laggy sometimes shuts down... so what about e398?
The lights are those in the side speakers, but they flash green every 5 secs, dunno y, and dont know how to turnt hem off really :) any help?
E398 supports FM radio function contrary to belief, just buy FM headset from Motorola and plug it in ... the UI changes to support FM radio tuning and u can use it as an FM radio.
sasank; all three are good phones but E398 is better than other two and cheaper, too.
th sasank. All the phones you named have there pros and cons. Fr me i like the e398 better then the others. And yes you can buy a 128MB trans flash for around U.S. $40.
If you are lookin for more memory dont get the k700i as it only has 41MB and cannot be expand,
which is better 6230 k700i or e398 can i get t flash card of higher memory pls reply
Sounds like the update has done some bad things to your phone!
I would take it to a service centre and have it fixed.
to niel: try connecting your phone without the transflash card.
BTW, the phone hase some hidden functions in it. for example, using multimedia themes gives you a screen saver light show. Anyone around who can contribute hidden functions on their phones?
ive upgraded my firmware to 96R and its faster... though everytime i turn on the phone it says.. "Phone Error:Flex Subsidy-Locked" on its greeting, i tried changing it but all i get is the same msg every time i turn it on. wonder whats wrong.. any ideas??
neil, windows SE, like 98 ? or what ?
install motorola modem driver... or maybe usb is not workin...
Does anyone know how to turn off the side lights? not the rhythm lights, but the lighs the goes of every 5 secs?
I loaded my software.. have my cable hooked up. But, PC (Pentium II, Windows Second Edition) can't recognize the phone as connected?? Any suggestions or know hows?? Email me if you will! Thanks
If you are going to the service center to upgrade I'm not sure whether you can just ask for which firmware you want.If you are flashing it yourself,go to www.howardforum.com.The people there know alot about the E398 firmware.
hi, i just dl'd some e398 apps. My problem is, how can i install it on my fon? BTW, its .jad and .jar files. Thanks!
So, about the firmwares.. is 95R or 96R better? Coz i have 34R and it lags and im planning an upgrade this week. Comments pls. Tnx!
Motofan I'm not really sure myself about what the 96R do...Did you flash it yourself or did you go to the service center?It could be possible that the 96R file floating around on the internet is an early beta,while the service center uses the final version.I have seen forum members commenting that 96R disables the Transflash card.
Also could you tell me how is it?Thanks!
To mmmwah-between 1-2K..I think.
To me-30 minutes? that's insane...could it be a problem with the K700?...I transfer files over 4MB in less than 10 minutes from another e398 and from a 6230.
To Jon-what type of error happens?
To Dave-as of now, you can only record 20-second long voice clips for MMS.
To Smooth-tha's because this phone is much better than the 6230 and the K700i.
To Dummy-that depends on how you're gonna transfer files...if you use MPT, it will take about 5-7 mins per 4mb...if you use the phone as a flash drive, it will be much, much faster.
