this phone has been with me for the last two weeks. ive gotten it working fine. i have succeeded finally in uploading the 64mb t-flash with butt kicking club remixes at 192kbps. i say "finally" because, regardless of what the manual said, sometimes music would be uploaded into the phone instead of the t flash. then theres this irritating matter of the invisible t-flash contents even if you click on the mmc icon. they may re appear when you exit from the program and re-run it....but this does not work all the time. like it has a mind of its own!
sometimes the phone would accept a particular music which it rejected earlier! the phone may accept a song thru a "click and drag" from the pc but wont accept it if you used the icons....then again...sometimes it works the other way around! whew....good thing i'm a little geeky... i've installed the cd into three different computers and i have had similar problems with each one. it would take a man (or woman) of immense tolerance to watch it load into the phone. better terminate a transfer if a 5 minute song doesnt load in 5 minutes. thats your cue that it is uploading into the phones memory.
now the good stuff:i tested the mp3 while i ran for thirty mins. i must admit that the mp3 made my jog infinitely enjoyable. quality is as good as commercially available units...pity the bigger memory tflashes arent available yet. the camera was a puzzler for a while since some pics were great while the others resembled abstract paintings. then i found out yesterday that you or your subject have to keep perfectly still for another second even after it confirms the shot!
overall i am happy with this phone. true value for money with its great features.a person just has to spend sometime learning its quirks. furthermore, the motorola people here are very professional and will not stop until they solve your concerns.
I own an E398 theres nothing wrong with the software. The phone is a bit sluggish with response times but nothing bad. The only time the delay is really noticable is when you are using the camera.
To e398 user: pls be more specific! the sw is not "some shitty piece of work" - see all the treats below.
To mt: yes, the e398 has build in hands-free :o)
hey does E398 have a in-built hands-free?
i am e398 user also and the phone works just fine. Great mp3 player, great display, good camera, nice java apps available, nice haptic lights, etc..
to e398 user

come on guys, for RM1.4K this phone sucks!! i'm not complaining about the hardware, thats top notch, but the s/w now thats some shitty piece of work. Think b4 u buy it!!
Why I cannot send any jar game to phone?

the best phone u can get out there now....
What's the real size of display in centimeters; lenght and width
hey guys anyone with any probs with ur mobile e.g bluetooth, java or others get registered at www.mobileworld.com.my and send ur enquiries there...under the forums section...the moderators there will be glad to help u!!
hey guys if u wanna download java games in your e398 the jar files doesn't run in Motorola e398, you need a .jad file converter like jadgen. You have to use a program called midway 2.8 to be able to upload a java program to your phone but you have to enable first the java apps using the PST 6.7 program. Since e398 comes with a USB data cable you can use it to transfer any wallpaper, tones, screensaver, mp3 and java programs or if not u can go straight to the motorola centre and ask the guys there to help you out....try it,...
really dazzling despite the size (necessary for the stereo speakers) it's a moving club
i have just bought the E398 unlocked:
my problem is , i live in USA and i get Tmobile US as provider. Because the phone is unlocked, i dont have all the setting for mms and tzones. And more tmobile us does not provide this cell phone. So i dont know how i can set my cell to surf with t zone and send mms
thank in advance
jasp-jasp >>> when u send a file the phone traces any id's present, it's god damn easy
Wow... What a mobile it really very cool one thing I want to know if somebody Knows kindly reply me.
1. Why the screen shot is small I mean when we play movie It running on half scree.
2. after playing a movie the movie is stop and message display that the file is currupted.
Overall phone is good
i have motoE398 for almost a month and i find it very good except for the lousy lay-out of phonebook, and another thing i still trying uploading java apps/games, no success yet but i think its a matter of compatibility of drivers/OS i'm using. Sash regarding ur bluetooth prob. i'm using Smart Sim but i think its not related with the network try Menu>Setting>Security>Lock Application, check if the "Connection" is locked then unlock it, the default pass is 1234
Any1 who know how to use the REMINDER ... where is the REMINDER .. and TEXT format for REMINDER ??
WELL ... does any1 know the E398 cant trace Bluetooth ID's at all ....
thanks crazy. How come others still have negative comments about this phone? Do you know the models E680 or E550? The E680 is very good because it has a touch screen. Is it available in the philippines or any countries in Asia? How much will the phone cost because it has very amazing features and its even better than the P900 which is very expensive. If it costs lesser maybe I'll get that phone. For now, I think the E398 is one of the good phones available in the Philippines and it doesn't cost that much.
the SAR rate is just higher than most conventional fones...but its safe
