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??

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.

But please tell me...
can this phone take a video (video recorder)???

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.
Cheap & Good. I just paid S$278 + S$18 M1 M Card and got this phone with no contract (use for my second line). The functions may be not so user friendly as Nokia but after a while got used to it.
First, the phone built quality are quite solid unlike Nokia phone nowadays are more plastic.
Second, the screen are quite big ecept the logo cannot be remove (but at least it can shift to left corner). How nice the date display also be remove.
Third, it has bluetooth (cheap and yet got bluetooth). Easy to transfer pic/files. But cannot receive large size pic.
Fourth, it has memory card expandable capability-can store many photos but unfortunately cannot record videos (can playback).
Fifth, it camera night mode seems has no effect-so always have to set to auto. No good camera for indoor but outdoor ok.
Overall, it's a good value phone. Cheap & yet good. No budgets for expensive phone, can try this E398.
hey lawrence. mebbe there's something wrong with your fone... or you can try this. when you connect your phone to the computer it should show as a new drive e.g. e: etc. when you open that drive you should see a few folders including one named 'audio'. paste your mp3 files in that folder. if the mpe player does not detect the songs then you need to have your fone checked....
hi everybody, can u guys tell me where i can download the motorola e398 P2K Phone File Manager ?coz i already search it on internet but i still can't find it.......
