Raza >>> biggest disadvantage is no video record. Infrared port is not necessary when u get memory card, data cable and bluetooth.
www.vstuff.co.uk it's a site with mp3 tones and videos. Using a card reader or the data cable allows u to download pictures or music on the phone.
All u need to connect the phone to the computer is located on the cd, u should try installing the motorola modem from add new hardware. The software is located somewhere on the cd.
using this phone in US with t-mobile. i cannot recieve/send picture message. t-mobile support cannot help me with setting since they do not carry this phone in US. HELP please. One more thing, where can i download ringtones and how can i download music to this phone??? Thanks.
I love this phone, its amazing i am going to buy this phone in few days. I think this phone is also liked by Ashu
I just got my E398 few days ago. It seems to be a pretty nice mobile phone. The only thing is I'm unable to connect my it to my pc using the data cable provided. I tried few times installing the mobile phone tools from the cd to my pc. But my pc keeps asking for the usb driver for the cellphone everytime when i connect my cellphone to the pc. Does anyone knows where can i get the usb driver?
MP3 quality is great and so are the pictures taken in daylight. The night mode really sucks, that is true.
The phone has nice features like: u can put security code to your inbox or other things in the menu so that no one else get there /// shortcut system is very good /// u can put several alarm clock in one day, this is nice. etc
I have one brand new in the box with 1 year warranty, for $490 australian dallars. anyone interested. email me.
Amazing Mobile!! Thats what i can say about this model, it has got each and every function u can ask for: mp3, expandable t-flash card, camera with 4x zoom and flash(the picture quality is better than nokia 6600)has got features like exposure and Brightness. I love taking E398 to Pubs, Reason:The phone has rythem lights, an amzing add-on to the features, the software is also fast when compared to k700i, Till now no software issues.The speakers are clear and Loud, gives good surround with mp3s encoded at 128kbps. The only feature which E398 lacks is a video recorder, The connectivity is good with Bluetooth and USB cables which comes free with the Mobile, u also get a Trans Card reader, Overall Bang for the Buck.......
any aussies interested, i'm selling this phone. only had it 3 weeks. $450 ono. email me on firstname.lastname@example.org Cheers

I use my friend N6230's ringtones. The ringtones from E398 sounds better than Nokia 6230! Both are 24 chords, but E398 sounds so much better. :-)
Motorola! Please upgrade your phone book. nly one phone no. to a name. Why can't move phone no. from SIM card to phone? I don't need duplicate entries of the same person on the phone book. Cannot search pass the first character. No SMS counter. Otherwise, this phone would be perfect!
Just bought it yeserday it cost me Rs.14900 in indian currency, about 321 USD, I'm facing no problems as of yet.
Slow sms system? Nope, I don't feel it that way, I own a Nokia 3530, everything seems surely faster than that, and yes thanks to BrightSpark at Mobile-review.com and all the guys at Howardforums.com I'm quite enjoying my experience with the e398
PS. Maical go to www.howardforums.com and check out the Motorola section, you will find solutions for all your problems.
I have some questions, so please help me out.
1) Can anyone tell me what resolution and frame rate are optimal for moto E398?
2) Can i load a java game on the phone with the mobile tools? cause i didnt manage to do that...
thanks in advance
it depends on u... if u want a fone with very good sound system and a very capable mp3 player choose E398...
for k700i for a smaller size.... faster sms engine... not so winding user interface....
also its all up to u...
just my 2cents
