I've got a little problem: I can't use PhoneTools with my phone. When I plug-in, it's recognised by Windows (I have XP) as a memory card. What can I do?
it DOES void the warranty. and BTW Ikky the warranty covers the software too. actually tht's one of the main things that it covers. since ur not supposed to be meddling around with the core S/W of ur phone the warranty WILL be void if the phone gets messed up while u were trying to upgrade it. so my advise is better know wht ur doing sharkblue. better yet if ur not sure get someone else to do it. someone who knows this kinda thing. MOTOROLA service center would be a good place to start.
i know exactly wht ur prob is. well actually it's NOT a prob. are ur songs at a low quality like say below 128kbps? if they are then tht's simply due to the low quality of the songs. tht scratchy sound will come from no matter what u play ur songs from if u have lowered the song bit rates abit. i've kind of gotten used to it. its not much of a prob. my songs too are at around 96 kbps. at tht level tht scratchy sound is very minimal and happens only very rarely.
hope this reply helps.
if u wanna get rid of those sounds up the bitrate to at least abt 112 kbps. but then of course the song size is larger and the overall No. of songs u can store would be less.
just for the record i have 26 songs at abt 96-80 kbps range in my 60MB card.
as long u could revert back to original firmware, its still guaranteed for all i know....cuz a year waranty on the phone is usually regarding the condition of the phone / hardware, not software...
but im not sure, hehe, just giving my side of oppinion-
its a nice phone with some great features, but also have some lack point. Its so cheap, for phone with this great features. I just try mp3 player, it have good sound n bass, but why after i play alot of song, sometimes its got delay "like try to refresh the memory". i still use original firmware software with transflash 60 MB, n now just free around 300kb. I planning to upgrade to v398 ver.4, but will this break guarantee from vendor???
WalaBang this sh*t rocks. i just bought this phone and i cant take my eyes away from it. look and feel rock solid and i have a feeling one day if this phone aint paperweight, it be a tool and do damage someones head. hehe... mp3, memory card, camera, speaker phone, video playback and a surround stereo speaker loud and clear with low frequency vibrates that outta shake you at times.
and i found out about the firmware conversion from e398 to v398 capable of boosting the phone speed, camera quality and added voice recording feature. uh uh uh, this sh*t rocks, just hope i can revert back to my original firmware if somehow the phone needs medical replacement somewat.
for a phone from MOTOROLA with these features, i gotta say either theu are selling below cost. cuz with all dat features on other phones, it equals more close to RM1k for all i know...
This phone is superb, i just love the colours. But i have one problem: when i play certain songs ( e.g callin' out by lyrics born ) at high volumes, i can hear scratchy sounds, kinda like the ones u hear when the computer speaker's subwoofer is turned up too high. Does anyone have this problem?
that's what you should have in your phone's box:
* the phone
* a sandisk 60MB card
* usb data cable
* a cd
hey i just got the e398 phone for my birthday. and all i got was the phone, battery, head set and the battery charger was any thing else meant to come with it like a usb cable or sumthin??
To lawrence.To play song from the transflash you nedd to go to Sounds then click the menu button .then switch to storage devices and you select TF.

another thing is...it has like "189 bytes transferred" keeps on appearing on my screen...its like 3 times per 1 hr...y is it like that? it happens after i activated my gprs..any idea fellow friends?
unfortunately, it doesnt take any videos but its capable of playback. its nice but it takes time to get used to its interface moreover if you're shifting from either a nokia or a sony ericsson. nevertheless, its a big improvement for a motorola phone. its quite user-friendly now but the manuals still lack information. it doesnt help that much so its up to you to be adventurous and try everything out.
i want to buy this phone (e398).
But please tell me...
can this phone take a video (video recorder)???
email me if u know...

Lawrence : u cant set the mp3's on ur T-flash card as ringtones. But u can certainly play them on the player. How else would this phone be known as a Music Jukebox. One of its few Major features. nevertheless the phones rockin ... for its price. again Audio being its strong point.
