This phone really great.a new revolution in GSM phones. My earlier phone is E 365, but this one really cool more improved version which the Nokia people cant think of this.coz i wanna 2 buy N 6600 but once i see the dispaly , sound quality forget Nokia all those things r bundled into it, moreover 64 MB card while there u got only 32 mb card.
If u people here uses the GPRS then its a fun tool u can download so much stuff like Java games, applications from wordial.com , midlet.com. Try it..
But Some time its M card d,t respond or cant download the mp3 songs why??
I have just got my E398 for 2 weeks and i think my left speaker is busted. When i play mp3s with heavy bass the speaker over vibrates and creates a buzzing sound. Does this happen to anyone else. I play mp3, Nelly's My Place at 192kp and the speaker vibrates. I dont know if its loose parts or blown speaker because other songs with not much bass sounds fine.
Does anyone have the same problem??? I want to try and return it for a new one but i'm afraid they won't let me as all other files with no bass sounds alright.
Hamza, you can use this phone as any ordinary mp3 player , there is no restriction of time or lenth for songs
i had 20 full mp3's on my phone with 192 kpbs, 128 kpbs, 96 and 64 kbps. It works just fine as mp3 player.
worm3 >> u had to add new hardware and install drivers for pst directory

DEAR ALL E-398 USERS,
I was a 2 months user of e-398.
My Opinion abt tis phone :
1. Very reliable.
2. Full featured.
3. Camera w 4x really works fine... and not jerky even in night mode with short distance flesh.
4. Java games. runns fine with original e-398 games. If enable java app loader, some more good. Can support most of the others J2ME games from nokias, and other models. only few cannot run (shows "apps error")
5. Powerfull messaging. Able to remember prev. words that had been typed which is not in the dictionary. able to select the ascii characters easily.
6. Really Fantastic display. (crystal clear screen with good cover on top) not easily get scratch.
7. Clear & sharp 3D speakers Loud with powerful handfree speakers. (no need extra mp3 players.)
8. V.fast GPRS / WAP connections.
9. Bluetooth makes perfect. Able to c all the folders in the tranflesh card and do file transfer without using M.Phone tool s/w.
10.Very friendly calculator, datebook & multiple schduling Alarms.
11. Helpful rythmatic lights helps when phone is in silent mode (meeting time)
12. MPEG 4 playback works fine. No jerkings.
13. Very nice soft covers makes a good grip.
14. changeable thames c/w nice screen saves.
there are more a lot. My opinion, Moto had make a big movement for this phone rather than prev models which are hard to use.
ONLY thing i quite NOT Satisfied with this phone is : The phone book which unable to search the specific names as E-365. ( 1 letter based searching)
Anyone knows how to makes the searching faster?
For gamers, pls refer to prev. forum on how to enable java apps downlaoding! mine running fine.
Hi there!Bought my e398 and love it, yes pitty about it not having video filming capbilities tho, is there any software that I can download to enable it to do so?
Aslo where can I go to download different skins for the phone?
One last thing, is there some kind of special way to set the resolution on the camera side, because I have seen some of the other sites that do reviews on this phone and the pictures that they supposedy took with the phone look a hell of a lot clearer than the ones that I can take.
Thanks a lot guys!
Regarding to many of the post related to SMS memory storage etc etc., yeah it is possible to store it in Phone memory you just need to SEEM edit it !! plus you can get rid of those clubland video and Motorola wallpapers which you cannot delete it to free phone memory, you can ofcourse load more mp3's on TransCard by squeezing the MP3 by softwares like "Audiolib MP3 convertor" which you can use to squeeze the BITRATE from 192kbps into 64kbps or even 48kbps. the quality ofcourse is quiet same. ofcourse you dont expect a Full Dolby performance in your E398 :D. :: PLus there are lots of tweak to Increase the Ringtone Volume further, increase the SpeakerPhone volume (Earpiece volume) etc etc which you can do using SEEM editing software like P2Kman. PLease understand how to use such softwares before messing with your phone.
