hey i just got bought this e398 from someone in mint condition for 40$ and all i had to do was put my t-mobile sim card in it. but the only problem is the t-mobile affiliated internet service called 't-zones' is not on the e398, even though my old phone is still a motorola. when i try to connect to the browser it says it 'cannot make a gprs network connection'? what the hell does that mean? how do i get access to the net? do i need some kind of adapter to use my mem card?
What version of Windows are you using? If you are using Windows 98, the driver files don't install automatically. Windows 2000 and XP will install the drivers automatically. It might also be good to know how much free space is on your card or if the card has been write protected. In a worst case scenerio, I would suggest formating you card and then try copying the MP3s again. It could be that the card's file system has become corrupt. I am not quite sure what else to say.
David, I tried that, same thing happens. Please advice.
It is easier to copy and paste the MP3 files in Windows Explorer. The files should go into the Sounds folder on the TFlash card.
Whenever I try to load MP3's directly or through Mobile Phone tools to the T-flash memory I get a cycle redundancy check on the comp. Why's this happening?
The FM Radio isn't built-in...you have to purchase the FM Radio Headset separately.
How to install a FM Radio? In Nokia and SE fones the headset itself contains the FM transmitter. Any clue on this, pls advice.
Also how gud is the photo quality using flash especially in dark?
Thanx in advance...
The phone is not lightning fast. However, there was a significant improvement on the performance.
By the way, I am now able to store SMS messages in the phone memory instead of the sim card. I did this by modifying a seem file with a hex editor. The instructions are in my previous post.
Here is an interesting web site link:
The site mentions specifically about the V series. However, most of the tips and tricks discussed can be applied toward the e398.
There is also a tutorial on how to use the hex editor. There is a lot of useful information. Have fun!!!
Update from previous post:
You can show or hide the dashes normally shown in phone numbers by modifying 004a_0001.seem offset 80 (Hex) using a Hex editor.
01 Hides dashes in phone numbers.
00 Displays dashes in numbers.
I successfully did this using p2kman and XVI32. Make sure you make a backup of the seem file before changing the values.
I upgraded the flex on my e398. Everything seems to be alright, with one small problem.
When I am dialing phone numbers, the masking has problems. It seems to be set up for US phone numbers, which has a mask of 999-9999, with 7 digits. In Hong Kong, where I am living, the phone numbers have a mask of 9999-9999, with 8 digits. When I dial numbers or the caller id shows up, the - shows up after the 3rd digit instead of the 4th. Does anybody know how to change the masking or to eliminate the - ? Thanks in advance for your help.
To Deepti: I had a similiar problem to yours. The problem could be with a loose Datacable or a crashed BVRP software. These days, what I do is before I run BVRP, I connect the e398, put something heavy on the part of the cable connected to the phone and then run bvrp. The other way round is to not use bvrp by installing moto drives and directly copy files to your phone via your explorer. mail me if u need more details.
May be the conector cable data is corrupt coz something else. i can use the USB cable properly.
My E398 is not getting connected to computer through USB cable. After installation it gets connected first time, but never succeeds after that.The computer find modem unavailable. I have tried it on my computers. Is there any problem with the phone. Please hepl me.
I just read on another forum that someone successfully modified a seem file with a hex editor to allow SMS messages to be stored in the phone's memory and not the sim card. The instructions given include the following:
1. Use p2kman to download SEEM 0032_0001 from the phone.
2. Use XVI32 hex editor to change offset 40: bit 6 from 1 to 0.
I have not tried this yet because I am not familiar with how to use hex editors. I would recommend trying to back up the SEEM file before making any changes, especially if you've never used a hex editor before.
