I've been using the E398 for 1/2yr now and can only express my entire satisfaction with this mobile.The battery is class, the display big and sharp, the reception is excellent. I used to use the K700i before which I would consider half as good as the E398 esp. in terms of quality. The only weak point is its conectivity
So let me get this straight. When a call comes in it would start ringing n vibrating together at the same time ? The Alarm is a Full Functioned one, operates just like the Nokias n SE's ? and it Is possible to change covers as long as u can figure out how ??? .... this sounds OK....
then the Speed .. is it as slow as the K700i(which is passable) , or even slower ? the viewing area of pics n video playback is only half the screen ? is this true ?
assuming the price being irrelevent, is the E398 still better than K700i ???
i have narrowed my options to just these 2 phones(since N6230 has a very small display)
ive read a few opinions on this forum. any more regarding my post, is well appreciated.
thank you .... for ur help
Can someone enlightened me where can i get a better for stereo headset? My Muvo's ear phones couldnt plug in. It was too big...
Thanx Moe ... apart from the non changable covers ... the phone sounds quite impressive
To Motorola E398 Fans
How do i get my computer to detect the USB while it's connected to the phone? I have a windows 98. Do i need any software or anything? Please help me i need the MP3 player.
do the wav tons of the nokia phones are not suitable in E398? i tried to copy tones from nokia 6600 but the E398 responded FILE TYPE NOT RECOGNIZED, why is it like that?
I downloaded some games but I don't know how to copy them to the E398.
1. yes it does vibrate and ring at the same time - the vibesync technology means that in some cases the pfone vibrates in beat to the music
2. You can set any sound you have on the phone as your alarm and as loud as you like, also the alarm only stops when youconfirm it on the phone
3. Finally, you can change the cover of the phone but the phones covers arent really supposed to be replaced. it would be more of a screwdriver job. plus i dont think that you can change the screen.
overall its a great phone but does lag a little. hope this helps
To Aaron : thanx for ur take on the phone. does clear a few of my doubts... but then again, when i asked about ring n vibrate together,I meant does it vibrate 1st n then start the ringing. Doesnt ring at 1st ( like some of the older motorola's). and for the alarm, on a few websites i read ....
"Alarm : Ring Once Only" (again like few of the old motorola's) ... is it a full fledged Alarm ???? and is the cover changable ... as im worried i mite scratch the screen.
n no replacement is a problem.
well anyways ... thanx for ur help
I admit tis phone is good enough to support ur requirement. Tis phone juz do a little bit slow only tey is nothing to worry abt it. Its quite easy to use (user friendly) especially SMS tat easy to use the T9 function. Wat i knw tey is no FM radio. The T-Flash (smallest memory card than RS MMC) is smaller than SIM card. The LCD pixel is very small when compared C380. LCD color is deep is enough. It has built-in security tat user can set a pin number on some applications. E.g phonebook(directory), message, settings, n so on. Its good for user who left the phone wit Lockin pin number to unable user to adjust or view the application. Its good, rite? The sound is good without loss any detail. It does included the earphone to answer call and listen to ur MP3 music too. Tis E398 is a tough phone N quality finised. Post here again if any doubt abt tis phone.
Does this phone have removable covers ? n how really small is the t-flash card ( half of a SIM) ??? Does the phone ring and vibrate together ??? Is the Alarm standard, just like the Nokia's/SE (it important to me)??? How Slow is the phones response ??? Phone Reliable enough ??? im a Beginner at phones so, Excuse the Lame questions. But Please do Help me out.
but ive had trouble finding the right answers to these questions. Dealers themselves dont know much.
Thank You ... :)
I downloaded some games but I don't know how to copy them to the E398.Please HELP!
i have also heard (read), that the charging unit has a problem. Any views on that? and is the phone really that slow, as it is made out to be ???? thanx .. again
To Moto Experts : is it easy enough for a lay person like me to upgrade software versions myself ? if so what would i need , in addition to the what comes with the package ? ... 1 more thing, does this phone support 3gp formats and other major formats
(used by Nokia's, SE) and above all ... Is This Phone Reliable ????? (last me a year atleast) PLease do reply to this query, im new to this forum, and i would appreciate it if any help. thanks .....
