Hi there people..
i tried to connect y new E398 with the usb cable, but all i get it's a list of empty directories. it seems i can upload files where i want, but the phone doesn't see any mp3.jpg.whateveris using the "multimedia" section.
any clues?? Thanks in advance.
to ^-^x: as you can see, i don't want to do it myself. it'll be a whole lotta better if i'd let it be done at the service center or somwhere "legal" (if you get what i mean). anyway, thank's for the advice!
to cru3l: thank's for the reply. i actually went at digital exchange, and they are doing the "flashing " thing for free. although, you should've bought your phone at authorized dealers, coz you'll need to show them the receipt. i think i'll have mine flashed sometime this week. *;)
I have got typical problem, the phone has gone dead. Only, white light on key pad is blinking. Even screen is not getting on. Any friend, if you have encountered such type of problem or any one has got the solution, please help me. I'm worried that i may loose such a nice and beautiful phone.
BTW, I did bring my phone to the MOTOROLA shop at the Digital Exchange once and the IT reformatted my TFlash because it did not want to accept any files. As a bonus, he gave me some cool ringtones, all for free. You just can't forward any pre-installed or Motorola installed tunes and pics to others but you can if you did the downloading yourself. The
to anyone out there, I hope you can settle this issue regarding battery charging. When I got my phone through Globe here in Alabang, the lady said that I can just charge the new battery till the charge is complete, which took around 5 hours initially but I did notice that the juice ran out after a day of playing around and setting up my phone. On a whim, I passed by the Memo express, a service center of Motorola, (which also owns the Moto shop in Quad) and inquired. The lady there said that I should have charged it for 14 hours straight. My battery runs out after an average of 2 days now after I followed her suggestion. Is my battery OK? My second question is: What is the best combination for Flex/Flash? I read in a forum somewhere that it is 7F/95R. So what is the best for 97R now that it is available here in Manila?
Thank you for your help.I get one more question is how can I upgrade the phone to version 96r or 97 r.Request from the phone seller or update on the internet? If so what website name I can use , please.
I love this phone. I updated the flex/flash. A lot of advantages but I loss Java Aplication Loader and bye bye games. PS. 180 games wait for me. Pls give me an sugestion to enable Java Aplication Loader
to ^_^x : no stores here that sell the e398 covers :( and yes mthe white /red cover it's very beautiful
Hey, just wondering if u can choose to view the phonebook like those Nokia handsets. As in, can you choose to view the all contacts in the phone only, or the sim card only? And, is the firmware 97R confirmed?
To Dia-actually, no...you will lose the capability to use the transflash card (you'll be limited to the phone memory which is roughly 5 MB) because the flash (firmware)where the video player is enabled is from the V620.
To Francesco-the silver one looks good, but the red and white one looks a lot better...isn't there any store that sells the white and red version in there?
To Mac-it plays videos in .3gp format.
"Hey the sms storage can be moved to phone by changing a flex bit. E398 do support storage of unlimited SMS on phone. Contact your service provider/seller." - i was told otherwise, the service center said it is not possible.
what is your flex version?
how come i cant play mpg videos? wad format can this fone's video player play?
Hey the sms storage can be moved to phone by changing a flex bit. E398 do support storage of unlimited SMS on phone. Contact your service provider/seller.
to ^_^x : thanks again ...anyway ebay sellers doesn't carry any red/white cover , really ( I'm searching it from 5 days now )
Since I'm in italy I might find myself in some difficulties finding this cover...
anyone who can help / suggest a store to order the white /red cover from ?
If I can't find any I will fall on a silver cover , which is beautiful but quite *std.* looking.
undoubtedbly, this is a great phone! i just hope and pray that moto will release some fix to the inbox message capacity problem and possibility to make subfolders.
here's a tip from experience:
- if ever u r transfering pics to E398 from a k700i(or any media applicable), please dont use the extended resolution of 1280x960 coz it will result to an error "Too large to display".i guess lower than the said resolution is ok since i was still able to open a 438x700 file.
Dear 2 eyes and one ear ^_^ thankx alot 4 the reply u mean if i add memory card i can make video ? plz make it cleare thankx again
i've been using this phone for a week. E398 rocks! it's fast,t-flash is nice,stereo speakerrrss!!!super!good cam.,nice reception,VERY good battery life (only if you play with the camera and mp3s and games all day long say "bye battery"). I love this phone, i had k700 before, this one is much better.
To Robert-It's one of the best phones right now...most of the bugs have been fixed in the new version of the firmware...that would be the 96R (although some are saying that 97R is laready available).
To Jojo-it's actually a bit of a shock that the K700i's price has dropped so much in such a short period of time...very unusual for Sony Ericsson...anyway, one piece of advice...don't let go of this phone! Hehe! I've seen the E630...looks good, but it can't match this one in terms of features...hehe...just my two cents. ^_^x
To Francesco-Try eBay...there are probably a lot out there already...and I'll email you the pic I got of the phone with a white and red cover...sorry for the quality of the pic though...hehe.
I can't seem to find a white/red cover replacemente for the moto e398 .. where should i look for ?
anyone who wants to buy a slightly used E398?Coz i myt be selling mine. Don't get me wrong, but this is d best phone i ever had!no complain except for d lack of SMS storage..my unit is black & i have just updated d software to 96r..i got it from globe almost 3 months (so it's locked to globe, but u can always unlock it in ghills :p)it's just a hard-habit-to-break that i always change my mobile phone that often..i'm just curious abt this Samsung E630 (No MP3, Bluetooth, Video but d design is awesome)..u can contact me thru yahoo: my ID is jeyytm.. or post ur number here so i can col u..
By d way, those wondering if this is a cool phone, this is!D price speaks for itself..Before, SE's K700 & Nokia's 6230 are expensive than this, but now E398 is more expensive!It's still a whopping P19k in all stores including ghills..unlike d other 2, their prices have dropped dramatically..typical nokia..
