i'm a user of this model also the motorola e398, well this phone is great becoz of mp3 playing, lights, design, color and a decent VGA camera, and i dont regret buying this one. it was just happen that i have few frustration on the features on this like the phonebook(its not flexible like nokia), bluetooth(cant send short note and cant standby unlike nokia), desired ringtones needs to copy to phonememory b4 it can use as ringtone and my least concern is FM radio
Pl advise where to load free themes and skins for this phone . I am really bored by the pre-loaded one. mototone.co.uk is one site but a paid one . do anybody have any update of some gud site
Samuel , tell me how in the world can u say that u store upto 100 sms ????????? Tell me the settings to do that ????
If SMS msgs are stored in the phone or on the SIM card is a flexible option. Your operator has most likely decided that all msgs must be stored on the SIM instead in the phone.
Samuel, you sure it can store up to 100 messages? if would be great if thats the case.. i need to store lots of messages.. but why do lesnar say it only can store 15 to 20? both of you are e398 users.. but wads going on? which is the real one? sms can store up to 100 or onli 15 to 20?
I must say alot of you don't noe this phone well... this phone supports transflash memory card not mmc ! and i can find 128mb simply at any motorola shops btw i can store up to 100 messages not 15-20... and SE K700i is far too lousy for comparison the radio in that phone have to be used only with the headset(as an antenna)this phone have an accessory called "FM stereo headset" too...This phone is the best!!!E398 RULEZ...
I like the shape, size, screan the keys, and its powerful and potable. In fact i love the out look and every thing composed in the phone.
I wouldn,t mind if i can have one for my personal used.
I so much love it.
The company is really trying keet up, you are the best.
Hi..... this phone is really Superb!!!! but i want to know one thing about the phone that whether it have the capability of Video recording through it's VGA camera.
Hi I read somewhere that you can store other files on the Sandisk card as well. Although the phone wont read it the pc will. So if u wanna copy a file from a pc under 64mb u should be able to use this phone
Andi Handani- your not writting to your grandma...
And yes, u can replace the 64 mb t-flash card with a 128 mb one and use them both if u want
Got this phone a week or so ago. Was getteing frustrated because it is not very user friendly. I cannot use voice dialing without having to alsmost scream and more often than not it picks it a wrong phone no.
I still have to use the rhythm light. it ikeeps turning off automatically.
I have T-mobile USA service and cannot download ringtones from them since it is not a t-mobile supported phones.
It still have to know how to download mp3 files...
This new Moto E398 really sucks!! beyond my imagination moreoversoftware is very useful . Can any body tell me i wanna 2 increase my MMC car from 64 to 128 or more is it possiblew in India especially in Ludhiana(PUNJAB).
I just buy my E398,black-silver metal striped.
Model & color is very match with my taste.
but why FM-radio is not include as "built-in"? if that so, this E398 is complete mobile exactly.
And Question, is the 64MB memory card can be expanded ?
I would sugest you take your phone in about the battery issue, I have a E398 and other than the first charge mine is fully charged in approximately 3 hours. As for the ringtone changing when you change a theme, a theme is a wallpaper, screensaver & ringtone so if you apply a theme all three gets applied, but you can easly customise your themes.
Here is a site where I get my thmes & other content www.mototone.co.uk you just need to register first.
the battery takes at least 5-6 hours to b fully charged..its not like nokia where it takes only 1-2 hours to charge
as for the 1 type of num thing..i think u can change the contact under phone memory then u can do more stuff there.
besides downloaded wallpaper..u can jz load in pics into the hp through the usb cable,so any pics can b as wallpaper.that's what i like bout it.not like nokia.
and for the ringtones..i think u gotta cut a portion of the mp3 that u wanted and put it under hp memory.that can be done through the mobile phonetools.
other than that..the phone is great.its loud and funky..so rock on!!
Must read for evryone.All owners are requested to read carefully and give your expert views....please ........
I purchased this set 3 days back . I wanted to go for K700 previously but due to loud and surround sound mp3 ringtones and 64mb capacity i got this one. I conclude that following are the drawbacks --->
1. phonebook contains only 1 type of number at a time .should have been more like SE or nokia and should have been expandable when 70 mb is avlbl
2. Battery (maybe due to new) is acting strange. I have charged for atleast 4-5 times for 8-12 hrs but only once it got "fully charged" message. on charging , out of 3 bars only 1 keeps on blinking . when disconnected 3 bars appear but drains very fast. do anyone know why this is happening ?????????
3.downloaded pictured appear very small and do not fit full on the screen .
4.mp3's which are stored on mmc have to be stored on phone memory to set as ring signal which is very small 4 mb only .it's frustrating to move each time.
5.sms capacity is very very less. It sucks bcoz even after having 70 mb you can store only 15-20.
6.Themes though loaded in by company are good but only 3 are there out of which only 1 is worth keeping . Also when themes are changed ring tone is changed.
7. I used T610 earlier and could load ample of themes from net for free but I did not find any theme or skins for this model.could it be bcoz it's new entry or I am not aware . Puhhhhhhhhhhlease someone advise as I am really bored of preloaded ones.
8. Camera is fairly good vga camera and the screen resolution is also v crisp and good even in sunlight.far better than T610 but I notice a flaw here . The pictures viewfinder is only 75% when shot , secondly when stored it is viewed blackened . To view it properly the phone has to be tilted at angle to see clear view and full colors brightness.
Lastly when pictures attached to phonebook, during incoming call the photo size is very small i.e thumbnail only . in this case the T610 pic size was better.
thanks in advance and waiting . u r also requested to mail if possible .
