To Canderous-If you have the software, it's pretty easy...but you do it at your own risk. I haven't flashed mine yet because I don't want to void the warranty...and I haven't had the time to go to the service center to have it flashed so I'm still stuck with good old 34R.
To Shah-you need to put it into the SD adapter, then you can insert it into the card-reader.
Should I have my SIM and Trans flash card out of my phone when flashing?
To shah A SD card reader will work as long as u have the SD card adapter that came in the case with the Trans flash card.
What type of card reader needed to read the 64MB transflash?..Does the transflash card need to be attached to card adapter before inserted to card reader?
Just got this phone yesterday.Really impressive!It's worth every cent.
Now I have been hearing things about the 95R firmware and I wanna get it.Between going to the service center and getting them to do it for me,or doing it myself,which one is better?I guess the obvious choice is going to the service center.
Now if someboday could tell me where or how to get some games for this phone here in .au that Optus has access to, i will be forever in debt to you. any advice, please email me at email@example.com
oh one other hint thats useful for this phone (and others), when you go to sites like MyMoto and play the sample of the MP3 realtones atc, instead of paying $$ for them, just go fish the file out of your Temporary Internet Files/Opera cache/wherever on your computer, then rename the file and upload with MPT. i did this with a System of a Down tone just for kicks and it worked a treat! FREE!!
for those having trouble with MP3s and Mobile Phone Tools...
you need to remove the transflash card when using MPT so it's really only good for uploading small MP3 files to use as ringtones etc that fit in the phone's 5MB memory.
for uploading MP3s to the TransFlash card, i recommend getting an SD card reader and using that to up the MP3s to the card. this is very fast (less than 1 minute to fill 64MB of MP3s), you don't have the 3MB limit, white-space is allowed (the fileneames can be whatever format you want, but keep them short) and if you know what your doing the whole exercise of removing phone from your case, removing battery + TF card, loading MP3s with your new SD card reader and putting back together can be done in
to ME; here is my email, firstname.lastname@example.org, i can mail you 95R and flash guide.
To smooth (about the beep).
It was weird because the phone was in stand-by: I was not using it. It was not the minute-reminder. Thanks. I will investigate :-)
To gennaro-what software version do you have anyway? And about the lights, click menu, go to settings-->personalise-->rhythm lights-->select pattern and time you want it on, and watch the phone react to the sounds around you. what profile were you on? And about the Outbox, I don't think so.
To canderous-if you want the best mp3 playing capability on phones available today, get this one. If you need the flexibility of Symbian, get the SX1, but you'll have to get used to that keypad. And Interpolation doesn't work, it's just there to make the phone look good on paper. 128mb is currently the largest available, with 256mb coming very soon.
To Chacha wanda-this is much better than the C650...that's just an entry0level model, this one isn't. The camera on this one os much clearer and has much better color reproduction.
To Nick-get the FM radio headset, it's really cheap anyway.
To Taj-use the USB cable and the MPT software.
To Current-yes, it's got a USB cable.
To ask-I had the same thing, try removing everything in the audio folder. that should work...
to taj: the best way is to drag-drop mp3 files using a card reader or, if you are brave enough, use the MPT to drag-drop mp3 files.
to gennaro: the side light usually activate when you recieve a phone call or a message alert, in this case called event lights but turns on only for a few seconds. I guess to conserve energy. The beep was probably a message reminder, which activates every few minutes or so.
Does anyone have a link to the 95r firmware and a guide on how to flash.
hey guys! i have this problem with my e398 in the audio section, i have this file like a playlist file, that i can't delete. it's just a blank and that the sign is a stop sign(circle with a slash), any advise on how to get rid of this?
BTW,what's the biggest transflash memory card you ever seen?Seems like there's only 128MB versions available.Poor show!
Finally does e398 USB port like c380/c385/c250? Can anyone tell me if E398 Have it or no ?!?
I will be getting this phone tomorrow,hope it doesn't disappoint.E398,here I come!
Is there a SIMPLE way to read the receiver of a message when you are in 'sent messages' folder? The only way I have found consists in pressing MENU, then STATUS. Too long and complex.
Some questions. The user manual of the E398 is the worst ever read. I am discovering a lot (too many) new features by using it.
- side lights. How do you use them? I have only been able to change their scheme according to the number calling me. Is there any way I can have them ON for a few minutes when a message arrives or when I miss a call?
- msg alert. Yesterday night (morning of today) I got a message. Since I was awake I was able to hear the alert: it was a simple beep even if, normally, it is not a beep (austin powers talking, actually). Is the phone changing the msg alert in the night according to the current time or to the time it has been in power-save mode?
Thank you in advance.
