hi all i have been using this phone for a week and its damn good i have bought a card reader to transfer all my mp3 to the the trans card if any one knows of any free goodies available for this phone pls mail me
"tap extended" doesn't seem to exist in my new e398. there are characters like the "smiling u" that i regularly use as an emoticon to express delight....only iTap and Tap options are available apart from the Thai characters which is of little use here in the Philippines. can anyone out there help me access the TAP extended feature!
The MP3 is great but transferring them from PC to phone was a nightmare. sometimes it ends up in the phones internal memory and not in the T flash EVEN if you click and drag the music to the MMC icon! when this happens, expect to wait a minimum of 15 minutes for a short three minute song at 160 kbps. its a hit or miss transfer all the time! sometimes i get lucky and music is uploaded quickly into the T Flash.
then there's the issue on ringstyles where you want to configure specific sounds for incoming calls/sms/faxes/etc...a lot of times when you intend to revise "Loud Detail" under "ring styles", the phone reverts to the "settings" menu. happend to me several times within the last three days (the exact no. of days that the phone has been with me). i wanted to replace my sms alert. last night i decided to go to "Master Reset" under "inital set up". this cured the problem.
the rubber that covers the headphone jack seems to be made of gum! its the only eyesore of this unit. after removing and replacing the cover for about 5 times, the rubber cover became so deformed, it now it resembles demon horns on top of my unit.
now for the good stuff....
i have a stunning silver and red phone that never ceases to catch attention. the screen is very bright even at the lowest setting (which is what i use. screen size is also very commendable.
the brighness and zoom features of the camera are also noteworthy but it can be horrible to use indoors even when you engage the built in flash. make sure you hold your breath when you snap those memories! a shakey hand will give you a picture that resembles Picassos paintings.
personalizing the menus are cool. you can assign the most frequently used function with this shortcut.
blue tooth connectivity is cool. not that difficult to access really. you can put it on you main menu it you use it often
the price here is about US$267 for a prepaid unit or US$160 for a lined one. a very reasonable amount for its cutting edge features.
verdict: i think this phone still has minor bugs that require fixing. overall, the E398 should give the nokia and SE boys a scare. a similar unit from these major manufacturers cost much much more than this baby.
hey all, i wanted to asl u guys if anyone knows a "link to themes $ skins" downloads, all was posted contains mainly ringtonz & wallpappers, but am lookin' for skins, thnx

I have the same prob....its tellin me my message bank is full on about 15 messages. i have not changed any message settings. i read over past reviews and heaps of people are having this problem. 50% say they cant fit over 20 messages while the other half can fit about 80 ! wtf!! i still cannot locate exactly where to change my tones for when i recieve messages. If anyone could help it would be much appreciated. Also if anyone knows why i cant send MMS i would love to know that too. I only just got this phone and am not sure if its set up for MMS. does anyone know how i check that out? Thanks heaps
