Hi. If I want to upgrade the phone to firmware 96r ..97r ect by my self ,how can I do it? Please
to Vict, hi, i have 95R installed and one of the reasons i didn't upgrade my phone to 97R is you need to flash your phone. I download games, skins, themes or play with menus by using some programs (i.e. p2kman,pst,midway,hex, and a couple more) but don't really wanna flash my phone. It's pretty much same thing you are formatting your pc and then reinstalling everything from zero. The other reason i'm don't have 97R is, you will have video recording if you upload e398 to 97R but at the same time you won't be able to use your t-flash card. So, if one wants to give up using their t-flash card to have video recording that's up them. And lastly, i could say i bought E398 for it's very good screen, stereo speakers and expansion slot. I'm not into phone camera that much, and rather use my Canon digicam instead :D. Now, waiting for Samsung to release it's nice phone SPH-V5400 with 1.5 gigabyte memory and could raise the capacity up to 10GB with OLED display on external screen. I hope my answers were helpful.
try to remove your SIM and put it back then turn on. that should solve your alarm clock problem as iv read somewhere
To momoko: Go to Menu/Settings/Personalize/Home screen/Home Keys/Smart Key
Press Change to make your desired designation to smart key
thanks for your reply ^-^*. Look for Benjie in Motozone. He is the IT there. He gave me a R2D2 ringtone that I now use as my text alert.
I recently got this handset from t-mobile and every thing was going smooth. I loved it and thought it was way better looking than my mates nokia 66 summit. All was going well till my mate bluetoothed back to me a vid which i had accidently moved to his phone instead of copied. When I came to play it the screen was corrupt then the phone locked up. I took out the battery put it back in and the bloody thing is dead. It just wont turn back on and I am pissed off. Only had it two weeks. Now its gotta go back to shop and i'm told i'll get a new one. But what if it happens again.. Anybody else had this prob. Just to add there was plenty of memory for it ..
To Reny-transflash cards are available at very affordable prices on eBay...the phone supports wav files, can be upgraded regularly, and is much better than the K700i.
To Teh-It doesn't have T9, it's got iTap. It's almost like T9 except T9 is a bit easier to use.
To U_mistify_me-try making another playlist...the file's just probably corrupted.
To Momoko-It does take 3-4 hours to fully charge...the only way to set the smart key back to voice dial is to do master reset...I think, I'm not sure if you can do this by changing the flex/flash.
To Marius-actually, I think it's the software that's slow, not the processor since a firmware upgrade significantly reduces lag.
To Simon-flash is available all over the net...or if you want it done legally, go to a service center near you.
To Vict-Where are you from? You didn't say so I couldn't tell you any place since I don't know where you are.
To Christian-not yet...I'm not yet sure if 97R has video recording...it can be enabled though by using the flash from the V620.
Levent, can you send both the flex n flash to me?
So the 97R is other model flash? why don't u upgrade it?
is dis fone have a video recorder?
Where and in what store or service center can i upgrade my E398 to 97R? Thanks a lot lot more. And also where can i find a site that offers themes for my phone? Your responses is highly appreciated. Thanks thanks thanks
Simon, if you give me your e-mail i can send you 95R Flash file and 7F Flex file right away. If you need games i can send to games to anyone. I'm using E398, too, and very glad to have it.
Better than K700!!
dose any one know where to get firmware up grades?
Currently i have problem on the alarm clock.
Steps: Menu >Office Tools > Alarm Clock > [New Alarm] > clicked SELECT > no response - hanged. Then i tried to click EXIT, no response too.
happened on mine too... try to remove the memory card and edit your alarm... it works... but if you would like to edit remove the card first
I had one of this phone and i liked it very much. I used for about 3weeks. One thing i dislike at this phone is that the procesor works to low. For example if you take many pictures and save them on the memory card and after that you want to see the photos it will take you a lot of time to see them. Another problem was with the phone softwere, when i entered in sound setup. If yo are music fans i sugest you to buy this phone it's a good. I sold it because i had financial problems. Now i want to buy Samsung D-500 it seams to be the greatest phone on market. if you want to ask me qestions about e398 send me an e mail firstname.lastname@example.org
to Reny, i meant wav. not wap, mistype.
teh, e398 has iTAP and TAP options. If you use iTAP it's the same thing as T9 (i guess) goes word by word, by TAP works like letter by letter kind of off dictionary fyi.
Reny, e398 supports wap (at least mine does), no radio, yes video recording if you are willing to upload 97R. You can upgrade anything in E398 that k700 can, k700 has no memory (expansion slot). SO, it has a fixed memory for 41MB, that's it. Right now you have 4+64MB(t-flash)in your phone and can upgrade it to 128MB anytime, 256MB is supposed to be out by now or any day near coming out fyi.
Marcus; you need to install p2kman drivers to your pc. here is a useful link for you http://www.mobile-review.com/forum2/showthread.php?t=16917
Teh, E398 do have T9 input.
I face some problem charging the phone, it take about 6 hours to fully charge! and my fren take abt 3 hrs.
Anyone ever change the smart key function? i accidentally change the default "voice dail" to some other functino and now i hv no way to change it back. Anyone?
Please can you tell me how to set up MMS ont the Motorola E398 with Orange? Orange say ask Motorola, Motorola say ask Orange :oS It seems that Orange don't yet support this phone - any ideas would be appreciated!
can anyone teach me how to customize my mp3 selections so that i can play them continuously... i tried creating my own playlist but when i select PLAy it goes back to HOMESCREEN.. tnx! :-)
