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.
Yeah all phones need a good 12 hour charge for there first charge for good conditioning of the battery and mine got more then that but if yours can take upto 5-6 hours then maybe mine doesnt have an issue.
I'm still trying to figuer out why I can only get about 20 sms's on the phone at one time. how many do other ppl get?
cause i know my sim card can hold heaps more then that.
this is really a gd phone! but the only thing tat i dislikes is that it lacks fm radio...
whish 1 is better? C650 or E398? they said the quality of camera both are same..?? ny1 help?
from my point of view, phone cameras arent an option for takin pictures. They r just for fun and to catch some funny moments with friends. Interpolate resolution keeps the same number of pixels, but enlarges them, so the quality goes down.
i got moto E398 for the mp3 player feature, good screen and haptic lights thingy.
SX1 is nice cause of its series 60 capability.
i dont think the camera is worth talkin about in either case.
Yeah...Plus you can interpolate the SX1's camera to 1.2MP.Arrggg,the agony!
SX1 doesnt have haptic lights and stereo speakers :>
but it is a great phone and a good phone to buy.
moto E398 its just for fun, SX1 is a more serious phone with more options: a smartphone, series 60 compatible
Thanks for the help.Now I'm trying to decide between this phone and the SX1.
Ever since the E398 has been announced I have wanted to buy it,but the SX1 can do everything the E398 can and then come more,due to the Symbian OS.
My phones takes 5-6 hours for a complete recharge, after that the battery seems to be full.
I have read on mobile-review that it is normal that first charges take a long time to complete.
In my phone, VIBE AND RING stands for VIBE THEN RING. It first vibes then rings. Maybe we have different software versions.
Has anyone else had problems with the phone charging? When I put it on it just charges for hours on end and never seems to be full..
I work at allphones in aus, and i found the e398 to be a very functional and user friendly handset. However that being said, all motorola charges need to be upgraded
If someone does have fullflash R372_G_0E_20.97R can someone please send them at firstname.lastname@example.org
To Canderous-you need to use a 3.5mm to 2.5mm converter so you could use regular headphones.
To Raqeeb-you can send files through bluetooth.
To Aris-you can only search for other devices (such as other phones and PDAs) through bluetooth when you are sending something. You can only search for headsets when you search in the phone's bluetooth menu. It's not a bug.
To Gennaro-use the vibe and ring settings.
To Lazy-you edti something in your phone...you use some programs which you can get online, and I haven't done it because I'm too lazy...hehe!
To Nikola-it only plays mpeg4 and 3gp files.
To Sonia-themes are just a set of pictures and ringtones, so there's really no use changing them. Go to www.howardforums.com for instructions on changing skins.
To unknown-normal headphones will work, but you need a converter to use them.
To Austin-you probably have corrupted files somewhere. Try looking for the said files and delete them if you can.
Omg when i transferred my songs to the card ..after playing for less 3 secs , it suddenly stopped and had a pop up "System error" . What the hell??
Hi, I have had the e398 for awhile and have not have any problems. But after today for some reason i am not able to edit ringer id under phonebook. I cannot assign a ringtone to anyone anymore? After I press 'change' at ringer id, it just goes back to the main screen....any solutions? Do i need a reflash or something?
Go to sounds menu -> switch storage -> select trans - to see sound files form the card.
