I think personally this phone has a lot more at its sleeves, I've been kinda thrown back at the performance of the phone at first (except the mp3 playback), but after the upgrade by Motorola and some seem edits later, this phone really ROCKS! and now the new T-Flashes are coming and i'm hearing that they will release an upgrade with VIDEO record!!
I love the look, i love the sound, i love the music, the apps, the (grin) voice recording, the lights.. everything! I just love it. Its THE phone if you want absolute style with a touch of geekiness.
P/S: I love it when i go clubbing, The rythmic lights just makes you PARTEYY!!
Please help me out guys. First of all what is the latest software version for E398 and where can i get it. Secondly, does the latest version support video recording? Finally, is it available in Pakistan? if yes then where and how much? Help appreciated deeply. thanks in advance.
Whoever don't like E398 (this is E398 userviews) can leave here anytime and go to any other phone's userviews' they want, no need BS from bored and pathetics.
just got my e398. the phone is fab. my 1st non-nokia phone.
Is there a way to prevent my sms (which is being created) from disappearing whenever i answer a call or switch to other menu before i could save it as draft? it's quite troublesome when it happens since i hv to re-type it.
Can anyone help me.
I usually use 2 phone, now i have e398 and old siemen c35.
I think i should trade my c35 now.
I really want 2 have moto a1000, but i dont think a1000 will come out at bali (indonesia)
But nokia 6630, se s700 and o2xda IIi sounds fine, wicth one should i pick?
Thanks a lot
thanks for ur sugestion, i'll try it.
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! This phone is really good in ONE thing and that's have a bombastic speaker but... Hang on!!! This is a freakin phone and not a mini hi-fi and if you wanna have great speakers and not a top notch phone... Go get yourself a stereo Hi-Fi system LMFAO!!!
u said "while browsing, click the menu button, select the Type URL option, and type the URL of the site you want to visit. "...still, 4 that I need GPRS settinds, do u know how can I make them? have`nt found such options in my Tmobile, not from authorized dealers, version :(
to Unknown - i lost built-in ringtones. too bad i'm in US & cannot get anything to replace them from motorola site (since e398 isn't sold here yet) i'll have to DL something from 3rd party, but i wonder what i lost...
to unknown i completely agree with ^_^x
cause me and my friend had bought these two phones togather around 4 months back
while his k700 has to be charged twice a day with heavy multymedia usage mine works cooly for 2 days his phones joystick function has detoriated while mine is just as new and the body of k700 though beautiful has all scratch marks while the rubbery body of my e398 is just still imaculate and pls agree the sound is not half as good as e398 . the only advantage he has is his phone has video recording ,but when u r stuck with just 41 mb of space how many clips can you record .so pls dont say anything nasty about e398 its a great phone for those who can live without video recording
To Unknown-actually, I tried both phones before deciding to get this one, and I believe I made the right choice. The K700i just has too many bugs, and its screen just can't compare to the one on this phone, and I have issues with Sony Ericsson's UI...and what the hell can you do with 41MB?
Oh, and don't put down this phone if you can't even say a single VALID reason as to why you think this phone is junk!
Before saying stuff like that, make sure you have facts to back it up!
Unlike you, I base my posts on facts, not just on my opinion.
got myself this so called 'fab' phone 2 weeks ago by trading in my K700i and well... this is a piece of junk compared to my previous phone and please... I hope you people will post honest comments in future regarding these 2 phones and for moto fans... don't put down K700i when you DON'T even use the phone before so NOW!!! I'm going to trade this piece of moto shit for my K700i again... DUH!!!!
To BH-thank you!
To me-I was talking about the phone..go to menu-->settings-->connection...you should have bluetooth and the USB option in here...
To question-as I have said many, many, many times before, you can record video but you won't be able to use the memory card. people, read through the thread before asking questions! A lot of of the questions being asked have been answered before!
To Adhitya-you made the right choice...get the 96R firmware to eliminate the laging ion the menus.
To Vict-just being nice...^_^
To HelloMoto-yes, anybody who says the K700i has better speakers than this phone is probably deaf or something.
I had heard the speakers of SE K700i. Anybody who says that K700i has better sound is talking crap. Although this phone isn't perfect, the sound really stands out. :)
To ^_^x thanks a lot. You've been a great help to all of us posting querries and other very useful info. Thanks.......
Move your software version to 96R and the phone will be really fast ....
Dont take it hard.
I dont think e398 better than k700.
coz it has a weakness 2
i just prefer 2 use e398,
so i trade my k700 2 e398 100 days ago.
I just trade my k700 for e398. I dont think e398 much better then k700, but it is better for me 2 have e398 then k700.
-e398 easier to turn the speakerphone then k700.
-i think keypad's e398 much comfort then k700
-u can change ur sms tone more personal when u have e398
-i dont need 2 charging my e398 everyday like k700
-of course it (e398) had better speaker and expandable memory
-i have trouble 2 connect 2 my pc via bluetooth with k700.
-u dont need 2 buy usb cable anymore.
But, it have weakness 2 like..
-e398 dont have infrared like k700
-e398 to slow (compare to k700)
-k700 lighter then e398
-e398 cant record video
-e398 dont have radio
But i think, i make a correct decision to change my k700 for e398.
The connection wire to the PC comes along with the package for E398. It's quite useless to have all that 'whopping memory' and mp3 functions if you can't transfer files from your PC to phone, and vice versa. So, it's really good that Motorola included the wire in the phone package. Whereas for K700i, you'll have to spend quite a bomb getting the connection wires and stuff. Most of my frns using the K700i usually don't bother. At the end of the day, many so-called superior functions in the phone are left idle. And, if you compare the E398 speakers with the K700i speakers, it's very obvious that the E398 speakers are very much superior. It even has bass. Surprisely, it doesn't drain the battery life by alot. And yes, I totally agree that the material used for the E398 is amazing. To date, my phone still looks as good as new. 3 cheers for Motorola!
