If you are going to listen to your mp3's through the hands-free, then you’ll need at least 112kbps. I have about 15 mp3’s @ 112kbps | 44.1khz and + several movies and about 200 pictures. They all fit in the tiny 64mb card J
i have 24 mp3 tracks, 2-2,5 mbytes average, they r made at 80 kbps. U dont need 128 or 160 kbps mp3 tracks on a phone !!!
and i still have like 4 mbytes of videos on my 64 mb trans flash + some pictures
Go to settings > connections > USB > data/fax
Then install MPT Sometimes then up date MPT then search for phone. It should find the phone. If it doesnt then manualy search for the phone useing Control panel > Add new hardware > When asked for drivers send it to the MPT driver folder. If this isnt detailed enough use google there are many sites with detailed info on how to install.
P.S. I couldnt get my phone to be detected but after a reformat it tryed it again and it worked fine.
With a firmware upgrade the phone lags a lot less. Also i have had no problems with buttons jamming or not working.
I can't sync my phone w/ my PC using the USB cable, is there a certain configuration on the phone for me to be able to transfer MP3 files to my phone from my PC? I've heared/read comments saying that the USB cable doesn't work. i think it should or else they should not include it in the package. PLEASE HELP!!!!!
pros & cons of E398.
cons = slow, buttons my jam and not function, no video recording, wallpaper does not support .gif files, copying the song from memory card to phone is slow, differentiating the phone and removable memory too much, camera is reacting slow and not very clear during dark.
pros= very good sound quality compare to other phones, design is nice, removable memory card allows u to use it like a thumb drive, very nice lighting, light detects sound and glows accordingly, camera with flash, rm8XX gets all functions.... budget phone........
does everyone experience the problem with copying the song to the phone??? is it a must to set it as a ringtone? anyway to increase the speed of the phone?? damn slow..... don't expect a very high performance co'z this is the best value phone u can get in sungei wang :) hehe.... got it just now....
To Jill Chavez-If the resolution of the picture is smaller than that of the screen, no, you can't zoom into it any further. If it's bigger, yes you can. And you can store SMS on on the phone by doing some SEEM editing.
To Malik-that's because of VibeSync. You can turn it off by going to menu-->settings-->initial setup-->vibe sync-->off...that's how you turn it off...if you do turn it off, the mp3s don't sound.
Hi, there. Ive been using N6600 since Jan2004, and now im planning to buy E398 soon. Just to compare, i would like to know if i can zoom the picture as many times like N6600 with this phone's photo gallery? Also, could i store existing messages using the memory card? tnx.
The speakers are vibrating speakers so they will vibrate more as the volume increases. So turn down the volume other then that you can’t stop the vibration. I find it isn’t much of hassle maybe yours vibrates more then mine?
The phone has a 64MB Trans flash so an average song is around 4.5MB so about 14 songs.
It can only play video in mpeg4 and 3gp not record.
I just bought the motorola e398 phone. very fun phone to use. I have noticed that with some songs i play on the phone, the phone starts vibrating too much,causing rattling of the case, which is very annoying. does everybodys phone do this or is it just mine? Is there any way to tuen the vibrator off?
well it can only play video, it cant record. And well it has 5mb integrated memory, so about 5 mins.
Hello! I'm about to get this phone tomorrow, so I really hope that it's as good as it seems! I have two questions:
1. Does the 'Video' function mean that i'll just be able to download mpeg4 formatted files, or can I also record so many seconds of video via the camera lens [or whatever it requires]?
2. Roughly how many mp3 songs can the Motorola E398 store?
Please can somebody e-mail me with the answers these questions? I'd really appreciate it and find it very useful.
everything seems good. mp3 or 3gp video can play well except the speakerphone sound not enough loud.
I find the damn earphones that motorola provided very uncomfortable,and the sound quality leaves alot to be desired.I know that those earphones don't do justice to the true sound quality of the E398,because I have tried a pair of Sony earphones connected to a 2.5 mm adapter with the phone,and it sounds real sweet.
My question is does anyone of you know of any good earphones that are natively 2.5mm?I don't wanna use the adapter because its pretty long,looks unsightly and could potentially damage the phone jack.
You don't need to upgrade software of your phone just to have sms delivery report. You only need one software : P2KTools to enable sms delivery report. And many2 others hidden feature. For link to this software try to read user opinion C380 in this website. That's software is for all Vxxx, Cxxx and Exxx Motorola Series. Try it !!!
great phone! of course with my limited financial standing :)
