Damn,now Motorola E680 is coming out soon.Now I have more headaches on which phones to choose from Motorola.Motorola is certainly kickin some fine Nokia,SE and Siemens asses in terms in offering superb features.Nokia's market is on a decline wohoo!Some assclowns still prefer the over-priced and featureless Nokia phones.
So my question is,since the Motorola E680 hasnt been released yet (except in China,Hong Kong i think),what do you think will the price be in Singapore?I know this is a thread about the E398,but im not sure which one to buy.Someone enlighten me please :)
well anybody out there who can help me..well i tried to download java games to my phone using the trans card..but apparently the phone can't detect it. heard from the personnel at the svs centre that not all games are compatible with motorola phones.so anibody has a website that provides compatible java games to motorola phone? thanx..
Try this, if your phone is with firmware 95R or later, go to Menu -> Settings -> Connections -> USB Settings and change *Default Connection : to Data/Fax Connection.
Then your phone will be detected as a modem by your computer :) if u still have problems, try calling up Motorola Service Center...
To L Maestro AkA Cool W,
I bought the phone at S$ 268 at a promotion when it was S$298 with 2 year contract (M1) about 1 mth ago...Now it should be around S$250...
You can always call up the service provider to ask...
I'm having a major problem and really need help. I have installed phonetools but when i try to connect my mobile it says its not connectred and when i try it still won't work! I've also got a message a few times that says insert sim card into modem! Please help its stressing me out now i've tried hundreds of times! :(
anyone knows if this phone will be available in the US ? T-mobile carries this in UK...any info will be appreciated
Anyone who is in Singapore and has bought this phone?If so,what was the price you paid for the E 398 with/without contract.And if you know,what is the current price of the phone.Thank You
-MMS works great...supports slides (although there is a 100 kb limit as with all phones).
Definitely worth the money!
I wanted to buy this phone..but its SMS storage capacity is too low..also, how is its MMS capability?the MP3 player rocks...but on the whole is it worth the money??
I'm buying it next week. Does anyone know of a good site or a uk stockist? The best i could find was the pink (eww) T-mobile ones sold on ebay for a £100. I want the pearl on and all I can find is the mobilefly one which is £210. Any cheaper places for pearl and red version???
So it definatley supports third party headphones? If so the Fantastic. I have the Sony funtopia in ear phones. Should work a treat! =)
To use the IM software in the phone, you have to comfirm with ur service provider. Service Providers in Singapore don't support it...
The software use Wireless Village Technology...

to learn about it...
There's a way to record Movies on E398, u have to flash it with V600 flash BUT TransFlash woun't be supported...so useless
To Ari_0, your wrong about only 2.5 mm jack cuz there's a ways a converter from 3.5mm to 2.5mm, it works great for me :D and a good HeadPhone sounds great!
To L Maestro AkA Cool W, there's no E398i release...not confirmed yet..so i don't know about it..
Yes, the speaker only supports 22kHz, but the head phones provided with the phone works at 44kHz, the sound quality is very clear, even at Radio sound quality (64kbps)
I use mpegable X4 live and encode my videos to 3GPP. There's a function in the software that allows viewing of larger video size even if its encoded at a small video size(Full screen on E398)..if you need help, just e-mail me :) i'll help u make the software free :P
ei guys I also got the silver and red version, just bought it at glorietta last month, I want to ask if pst 7.1 works with this fone, if not can anyone email me the installer of pst 6.7 or a download link which includes the password, t.y.
Thanks for the advice, but maybe I'll buy the BT headset in Manila on my vacation (March 2005) to get a better technical advice coz there's not much support of this mobile here in Saudi Arabia.
I bought mine in Dubai two months ago, and the S/W version is 59R. I dont know if there's an upgrade version since then. Anyway its very easy to check the S/W version at the store.
veejay - suggest you test the stereo bluetooth headset before you purchase them. i have a mono bluetooth headset that cannot play the mp3s. however, i heard from a friend that nokia phones can play their mp3s over the same blue tooth unit. thread with caution!
I suggest you try out 56kbps mp3s. I got good sound quality with them and have stored 35 songs on the trans card, and still left with 9.7mb of free space.
I'm experimenting the encoding and will announce my findings. All I know is E398 does not directly support this MP4-AAC format. So stick to Mp3 n don't rush to convert your tunes to MP4. Remind yourself this is a all-in cellphone, so for functions it's bits of this bits of that. It does not have the full features of for example, an ipod or a digital camera or a pda.
3. Voice recording.
Here's how to record voice. This is unofficial and undocumented.
Message->New MMS->Insert->Voice Record->(record n store)->OK->(send to: one time entry... then enter(a fake email address), To: x@x ->OK->Message Options->Save To Drafts.
Check Your email, draft folder. There you go have a voice recorded message!
Enjoy! (don't get) Confused..
