what ARE these e398's firmware all about??? heheheh, wrong grammar yung isa.... =)
what is these E398's firmware all about?? what do they do to your fone?? and is moto e398 better than nokia 3660?? and how much does the moto e398 cost here in the philippines?? hope i'll get some aswers here... hehehe... thanks!!!! =)
I just upgraded my E398's firmware to 96R few days back but I didn't notice any difference with the new firmware. If the 97R is available, I'll probably send my phone down to the service centre within the next few days. I noticed some uncleanable specks of dust caught in between the LCD screen after I collected it back from servicing. Quite upset. Hopefully, they'll clean it away for me the next time I send it down to upgrade the firmware. Noticed that E398 is quite laggy compared to my other Motorola V220. Wonder why. Isn't E398 suppose to be better than the V220?
Hi, new here. Heard that E398 97R firmware was released. Anybody have the flex? Can email to me if you got it. Thanks first.
can any body plz tell me if we can make video in it o add some software which can help in making video
how do i delete picture and ring tone that it was in the phone.....helpppp!!!!!!!!!
To ^_^x: im not sure if it is available in libis, i got the SW upgrade 96r from the buendia branch.but since they are both authorized service centers of moto, it is most likely that it is also available there. reading thru the threads...y is it that there are no options to save messages on the phone, only in sim.when my inbox is around 32 msgs, it becomes full, quite a downside for moto. any idea what is a flex? as posted by someone, with 97r and some adjustment to flex, he was able to store many SMSs on phone. this would be a great improvement...
To francesco-For the skins and for the instructions on how to install them, search through www.howardforums.com. ^_^x
To Aris-Yup, I'm from Manila. So 96R is already available in Libis?
To Steven-you can probably get a screen protector in cellphone/PDA shops, but I don't think there's one that will fit the E398 perfectly, you just have to cut it a bit.
To Simakas-actually, I have seen more bugs in a phone's SW, in one of my old Nokias...hehe...anyway, yup, most of the bugs are fixed in the latest version of the firmware...and my phone does wake up on events. And I haven't experienced the glitch with the data timer. And the 1-digit shortcuts respond slower when you have more than 10 shortcuts because it uses the time delay to wait for you to enter the second digit of your double-digit shortcuts. ^_^x
To Cruel-software upgrade is available for free (if you bought your phone from authorized dealers) at the SmartNet Service Center in Libis, and they probably also offer the upgrade at the Buendia service center.
To Klau-while browsing, click the menu button, select the Type URL option, and type the URL of the site you want to visit.
@dj, i know 2 locations of service center of motorola hir in phils. in fact i already been in one of the service center located at buendia ave. makati becoz my unit b4 has a prob. in menu etc., i just wondering if i can ask them to reflash my SW into 95R even i have to pay... neway tnx i will just try to call them tomorrow
still ned help! :(
I have e398 from TMobile --> one problem: has luncher key 4 Tmobile Wap so...how can I enter other sites? or make manual gprs setings. a new soft on my phone wold solve this...? I yes from where do I get it? If u can help I would apreciate that!
have you tried going to libis? that's where the motorola's main office is, i guess. or try going to digital exchange at glorietta. it's way up near hardrock cafe and gold's gym.
regarding upgrading the SW, incase we dont have service center upgrading the SW here in manila, phils, does anyone have a link of working flash file(95R or 97R) and program that i need if i'm the one who will flash my e398, just email me at email@example.com, tnx in advance
Does anyone knows where(place or location) i can update the SW of my E398 here in manila, phils? my SW is still 34R, i wonder if motorola service center provide this upgrading of software, just email me if u have time(firstname.lastname@example.org) tnx
i've never seen more bugs in a single cellphone SW. if that was my software i'd give to cut my hand off. doh.
i still have original SW, so....:
1) sometimes display timeout blocks the phone, cant do anything when someone's calling. must wait untill it stops ringing.can only see black-screen
2) the alarm - only 5 instances, and cant be programmed on mon, tue... so on. must use organizer instead of alarm clock.
3)organizer sound signal doesn't loop...
4)phone doesn't wake up on event.DISASTER
5)shortcuts do not respond normally if they are combined from 1 digit. 2 digits - works perfectly.
6) java mp3 player doesn't work. halts for about 20-35 minutes.and only then it loads tracks. but native mp3 player works faster anyway
7)after a single gprs connection the data times counter doesn't stop counting. of course - you pay for megs not for time, but its a bug, my counter now shows that last data connection last for 483 hours :)
funny that data volumes counter is't counting bytes after the connection is closed and sending them to operator :D
8)battery meter doesn't work. it can show only 0,2,4 and 6 in a 7 points scale. dammit (sorry) my V50 could represent battery state with a screen pixel resolution!!!
9) there are many other bugs, but i've heard that they are cured in versions 95 and 96. example: ANNOYING key beep even if sound is 0, and alarm problem...
so... ...if you want a mp3 player, phone, and a usb key... ...cool. these functions work perfectly :)
everything else JUST PERFECT. like in a cheaper motorola versions :))
sorry wrong email added. Hi Guys, I just have my E398 updated in Malaysia & it 's only a 95R version. Does 96R or 97R that u guys mention are available everywhere? Lastly anyone can advise where to get a ready made screen protector for my screen?
I upgraded to 97R and it is really fast. Now the phone appears as a USB drive to the PC. Also I changed the flex bit to store all messages to phone. Now it can hold unlimited number of SMSs....
sorry for that last post, you guys did answer my questions pretty well. I just got confused with all the threads here. Thanks again!
Can anyone tell me the difference between a 95R and a 34R software? What will I get if I do makethe upgrade?
To ^_^x: well im not sure if your from manila but 96R is already available here since nov/dec 2004.
what are the skins avialable at the moment ?
Where can i look for them ?
