I had this phone since last December and I think this phone is quite good except that the operating system is soo slow that when u just access the last dialled calls menu, it takes a few seconds, and it it also slow in keypad... Plus the memory card can only support to 256 MB. But the sound is soo good!... in the phone. THe earphone come with it does not have enough bass punch... and no equalizer. Plus it cannot record video, but can play MPEG4. Rating:7/10 Good

I am looking for the url where i can download the video recording software for my E398, after reading all comments i wish to have the software flashed to my phone, I would request any one can give me the link from where i can download the software and use on my E398 phone.
I flashed my phone to e1/e790 version and now I have itunes, acc player, video camera and a lot of new thing!
Hey replayee. This phone is relly nice and better than k700.
This phone have a stereo speaker and the loudest speaker money can buy.
K700 is a piece of junk.Expensive, and don't have a memory card slot. Only 40 mb of memory..........
oh there there replayee...seems to have touched one of your nerves there...LOL
K700... now hmmm lets see
the camera is crap. no zoom for high res pics. shutter sound pain in the place where the sun dont shine. the video is even more abominable...camera pics always have a red tinge to it...
the organizer is just horrible...phonebook is the same...
the phone has only 40 MB memory and not even expandable you sorry soul...so the phone obviously doesnt perform as an mp3 player. tht function is there only to fool sorry SE fan boys like yourself...
and dude its a SE phone...so lets not go on to talk abt all the software problems those phones must be having interminably...the battery life in this phone is a sorry story in itself..:) so you see in the end wht DO u have in the K700? just the bells and whistles like the colours and the animated wallpapers to soothe dumb schmucks like you.
the moto E398 has everything the K700 has now and ALOT more dude.this phone is far cheaper than ur crappy K700 man. and for tht money you can easily get yourself a FM radio headset as well for this phone. now it also has video recording. and with exceptional speakers and expandable memory this phone will kick the K700 all the way to kingdom come! it also comes with a USB cable in the package dude. thts wht u call a complete package...
well no point going on. its obvious sorry SE fan boys like youself are the only souls SE will continue to entertain with their useless gimmicky toys...
and maybe you're the one who should die...:)
i've got this phone but my pc can not recognise the phone any longer....Is there a software that i can use to install this phone apart from mobile phone tools?
hey i'm having a problem: in the settings submenu, i dont hav "java application loader" under "Java Settings". can anyone tell me y? i really need some help. i hav to play some java games on this phone. my S/W version is R372_G_OE.20.96R_A
It's a Damn good Peice for less price and with all facilities and a good resolution But Charging of the Battery is only One Problem.
carefull with what you write.... you may get your wish but in the opposite and it might be you hahahahahaha. do you believe in bad karma????? watch out
got this fone for almost a month now... flashed it to V398... everything is kool but speed is lacking and no video recording... oh and the bluetooth is very slow...
SO what if the crappy e398 has video recording its still a piece of junk. The k700 beats it any day. Everyone with this piece of crap should die.
hey all, my S/W version is R372_G_OE.20.96R_A. are there any new firmware versions?
