a great phone. nice black color can be used in the corporate world. i traded my 6230 for this baby. cool speakers, nice battery life, phone memory is huge. can send to group of people. only downside is the messages are saved on the SIM and not phone, no IR. otherwise a great phone altogether.
the e398 stores messages only on the SIM and not on the phone. you have to upgrade to a higher capacity SIM raju.
This is a fantastic phone,I am really impressed with it and the price is great compared to some of the SE's and NOKIAs on the market in Australia.You can do loads with this phone and it has 64MB transflash card included,hepas of room to store MP#'s on and even though it has been said you cant use an MP3 as a ringtone all you have to do is transfer one over from the flash card to the phone memory and voila......you have your MP3 ringtone!!!Only one drawback is you cant do videos,even short ones,all you can do is download them.The bluetooth is great and it has the best sound I have heard yet in a phone and thats better by far than Nokia's great MP3 phone the 6230,this one has it all over the 6230 and I am way happy with it.Had no problems at all with this phone and I always said I would never get a Motorola cos I just didnt like them but now I am hooked and bought my daughter a Moto for her birthday and also got the V620 :o)
pkc go to setting , ring style , details and then text msgs ......... thats it
I have the E398 Motorola for about two months and i had small and problems with it (that's because i'm a power user).My last phone was a Nokia 3510i and lasted for about three months and it's software failed.With the motorola e398 i had problems such as:
*it stopped responding after transfering 2 mb video
*it restarted after making a picture
in all minor things
But i must say i like this phone verry much, it sort of fits me.
I have some questions for e398 users if u can help me pls:
*are there availeble software patches for it becase it's SLOWWWWWW, tooo damn slow
*das it hav a incorporated radio, because i found in the setigs menu at lock app, at multimedia "radio"
*are there video and sound recording software availeble
PLs send me a mail with answers and question
MP3 as RINGTONE.,, get the song,, reduce its bitrate or edit it in order to make it smaller than 2 megas or 1.8megas (sound forge can help). transfer it to your memory chip (TRANS)then turn phone on, select the song (Switch Storage Devices) once you select the song, choose MOVE and move it into internal phone memory (PHONE) once there you can set it as a ringtone.. Enjoy
hmm...of all the phones i've searched, this one stands out from the rest...6230, k700i. i'm now convinced to buy it...*;)
For those who encountered error during MP3 transfer, try to reboot your phone. If symptoms persist, consult w/ other persons....hehehe :D

Bought the phone 4 days ago. The speakers are damn good! Way better than the rest. And I ve copied many MP3s into the phone. The PC software is easy..helps a lot when it comes to transfering short files. But i am unable find any wapsites for themes/skins/games(NOTE:Free). Can anyone help??
E398 has voice recorder in MMS, u can record up to a minute and save it in drafts or send it via mms. It doesnt have voice recorder as independent application.
To find bluetooth devies they must be activated, the person u want to send too must send his phone to be discovered. If this isnt the problem, maybe ur phone has a problem.
U can download skins, but i cant point u out to any website, cause i wasnt interested in this. And i have 3 preinstalled...
