Hi guys, need your help. Have E398 and after charging the new battery for a good few hours, it does not allow me to either send sms or make/receive calls. So I switched off the phone and turned it on after an hour. Then the battery icon shows red instead of charged battery. I have tried several times, it is still the same. When charging battery it shows the juice bar. When off the phone and turn it on, the battery juice bar becomes red - flat! Do you all know why it is like that? Thanks alot!
hi guys.....help me...plz....i want upgrade mot e398.......to rokr...step by step before modd.....thx... email firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey Guys, how are you all doing?, It's been alongtime, Do you know that all phones can be upgraded? Yes it can, I upgrade Samsung and Nokia Phones also, but to tell you the truth Motorola Phones are easier to mood, especially the e398, but the nicest thing of all are the programmes, there are programmes to make your own skin, to delete and add menu icons to your phone, start up and shutdown animation, trust me there's alot. My advise to you all is to buy a cheap phone like the e398 and upgrade it to the dearer ones, like the e398 to Rokr or even Rokr 2, I only have 2 problems, I know how to deal with one but I don't know how to edit it again, I want to change my rhythm lights and so on, I need to edit it or if where I could get any, it is called Funlights, or something like that, my next problem is the Motorola Splash Screen, it is the first one that I see when I turn on the phone, I'm not talking about the Start up animation. If anyone know how to deal with it, please contact me at Sheldon_Farquharson@yahoo.com and Sheldon_Farquharson@hotmail.com, even in messenger. Thanks and I'm waiting. MOTOROLA RULES.

hello...this is for those who desire 1gb microSD for e398....i bought e398, it had 64mb transflash which comes along with the phone. i bought 1gb microSD Sandisk, it costed 2300 rupees in indian currency. i was not sure this phone can support 1gb card as i was reading users opnions on gsmarena...was scared it will be waste of buying 1gb..but my phone showed up..when i checked memory meter it showed 992mb...was excited...i installed itunes..it worked good....BUT for 4 to 5 days since the day i put 1gb card, my phone started to hang up while it loads next mp3 song..cos the phone processor is slow for that huge capacity of memory to read suddenly...phone takes time to get adjusted to 1gb card..now my phone works awesome, it holds upto 260 songs...my 398 is an ipod shuffle....before buying memory card, ask your card vendor to check whether your phone is showing 1gb or 992000kb coz all vendors told me e398 won't hold more than 256mb card...any help mail me
The worest phone ever...problems whit software...battery don't have a long life...a junk...DON'T BUY THIS PHONE....only thing good on this phone is the sound and camera..
I want to ask why when i choose my call tone to be a mp3 file there is soooo lag. when somebody calls me, the mp3 going play but when i click on the "answer" button have to wait about 2-3 seconds when mp3 stop and answer the call. is this from the kbps of the mp3 or it's just cuz the phone is veryyyyyy slow...?! and if it's cuz the mp3' kbps is about 192 how can i change the kbps smaller? ;-))
i had a motorola e398 for about 9 months. i loved this phone. it's the only phone with a camera that makes me look half decent. but aside from that i love the features, but it did lag quite a bit, but that wasn't a big problem for me. the biggest issue i had with the phone was the charger plug. it's loose fitting and posed a lot of problems for me. the other problem was how it died on me. it just suddenly died. it didn't give much warning. it only lasted 9 months and i read that other people had problems with it dying too. i guess it's not a good long lasting phone after all. i miss that phone, but i hate that it has such a short lifespan. i would buy a new one, but the se k750 is within my budget now so i'm gonna buy that instead. hopefully it'll last longer than my e398.
Some of you talk Rubbish when ur say its a bad phone...well it is if u Don't upgrade it! After being in a moto community you can do wonders with it...my E398 us to be called 'E398 - Hijacked',but now i call it 'E398 Re-Hijacked'aka (MotoIpod),The spec is now the same as V3 i only much better...I have Itunes on it..can play a maximum of 31000 songs...using 2GB of TFlash...no lagging at all...the speaker is much louder the sound on your earset is much better like a dedicated MP3 player. Upgraded to a Quadband phone of 2.5G!!! I bought it a mere of $90!!! Heck its sounds better than the W series if you know what I mean.... :P~
this phone sucks..the charging causes problem and usb cant connect to com. i need to push it with my thumb...sms is kind of laggy which makes tis phone suck. anybody faces tis kind of prob
What a peice of rubish this phone is!!! My wife & i both bought a e398 each & we and friends of ours have had nothing but problems after about 13months. This phone will not see you through to the end of your contract. It has problems charging, turning on & off & also buttons not working properly. Do not buy this phone!!!!!
