pkc ,i never had the nerves to fool around with the seem edit even the S/W upgrade was done at a motorola service center but some day would like to give it a try
You can convert the MP3 song of around 3.5 Mb to 1.5 mb size and then you can trasfer that song to eighter phone or to memory directly ... But i frefer to cut the main part of Mp3 which is good to use as mp3 .. of around 250 Kb and put that in phone ..
If you are looking for the software as well as the mp3 ringtone file you can join my group at
I have roughly 300 of these at $160 U.S. dollars a piece. They are Jap version, with jap writing on the buttons.. BUT it has english itap and english menu's etc.
You guys mentioned that you have to edit the mp3 song before you can transfer to your phone (to use it as a ringtone). How do you 'reduce its bitrate or edit the song?
Can I transfer 'move' one song to the phone? Is there enough memory to support 1 song? Thanks for your help!

veejay, i dont notice any texting lag with my 96r. what about you regi?
by and large, i am happy with this phone for its features and value for money. an outstanding feature apart from its exceptional MP3 is its screen quality. all other phone screens i've seen would seem miserably washed out when placed side by side with the e398. this includes the expensive SE p900 and N6600!
be very careful when you charge this unit with the supplied charger since a lose connection can easily occur when the plug attached to the unit is moved. the service fellow told me that something within the phone easily bends and results to non charging.
96R is available in the Philippines but only thru Authorized Motorola Service Centers.
95R is available on the net.
My flex version is still original as when I bought it - GSKE398T672EB061
There are flexes out but again check www.howardforums.com to know more. I suggest you try to learn everything first before trying to flex/flash your phone. It will void any warranty. DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!
you have used 96R flash, how about the flex? what version are you currently using?
I am starting of with a new Yahoo group only for Motorola E398 Phone .....I invite all you guys to post your thought and problem .., sharing the resources for everyone ...

I would flash and flex this phone. But I can't, unless I get a PC. Since it cannot be rushed. People, to upload games to ur phone without flashing, join zedge.no and upload your jar, then login via wap and put into phone.
where can I download 96r from internet? what is the difference between 95r and 96r?
96R makes everything faster and better. Again check out www.howardforums.com and just search through it. It has the answers to most questions. Available over the internet is 95R, which is also very good..
Plc , in yr phone go to setting ,ring style ,loud detail ,and text msg and chose any music u like
does any1 know whether v can chg the msg sound alert or not?
i accidentally deleted the msg sound file, when i try 2 reload the sound back it doesn't work, so now no sound play when there is incoming msg.
any1 know how 2 resolve tis?
Regi: I bought mine in Dubai and the S/W version is 59R. Texting is very annoying; there is a lag time of 2 seconds b4 u can proceed to the next letter on the same key. Is texting now faster in the 96R S/W version?
I`m looking at this phine and k700 , because they are kind of the same at looks and price . Looking at the specifications i believe that k700 is better at features but E398 looks a bit better. I don`t know the performance , because i can`t have them to test them. I don`t know what to choose. K700 or E398 ?
