if u dont mind the lack of dual loudspeakers, maybe u can wait for E2 its more powerful than E1 and it can play more music formats...
u can try themes fr motorola e398. they should match to E1 also. http://gallery.mobile9.com/c/motorola-e398-themes/1/
regarding putting MP3 song for ringtone i can advice to move downloaded song from trans flash to mobile memory. then u can put it for ringtone. as from trans flash any sound cannot be used as ringtone.
who cares if the camera is rubbish, you buy this for listening to music and calling people, not for taking photos. also, its easy to change settings once you get used to the phone. i have filled up my 100 songs on itunes, and i still have over 200 megabytes left on the 512 mb transflash card, so i have filled the rest up with music by dragging and dropping it to the "sounds" folder of the memory card using my computer. you can also play mp4 videos bye converting the video to mp4 with a small resoulution. i payed 150 pounds for it at argoswith t-mobile it was on offer) and i got a 512 memory card, headphones and everything else with it. overall it is a good alround phone , excellent for music, but quite slow with everything. it keeps playing music for a few seconds after i exit itunes. for any questions, mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Good evening mr anderson ha sorry, Motorola I applaude you as all of you have seen my recent and not so recent comments on this fine fine mobile phone, and some comments on the loser egg shaped e2, anyyyway does anyone no how much sandisk memory slot cards are in aus, thanx ull be hearing more from me next time, hi wilson/!!
Where do you download applications and games for the rokr e1 for free.
And also how do you download these files to the fone. Where do you download the files to?
have this and a nokia 6270 n the nokia plays way better!!!
for a music phone its not all that its supposedly cracked up to be.
have not compared it to any se walkman phones yet but getting 1 next week so'll let u guys know
Ok ok ok, this phone is the greatest specimen on earth today, i mean who the f**k cares about the stupid egg shaped e2 its a lil faggy cousin of e1 and may i say it hasnt had a girlfriend
this is the best phone i've every had. THe size is small and the phone is strong. Many people prefer the new SLVR, but i dont like it because it is too thin that people could drop it so easily. The ROKR has the perfect shape and color. The white color is rare and all of the buttons are in the right places. When i first got the ROKR, i was impress with all of its features, and theres alot of little things that makes the phone fun and advanced. The best thing about this phone is the 3d speakers, the sound is very clear and loud. I also love all of the features like the side lights, ringtones that comes with it and the wallpapers. Many people complain because it cant hold over 100 songs. This is not an ipod you guys, its a phone, 10 songs would be enough for me. lol. Too many people give it negative because it cant perform or hold as much as an ipod. The only negatives i have about it is the camera and video recorder. Its like many other phone cameras, its not horrible but i just want a really good quality camera. I know its just a phone, not a digital camera, but its possible to add atleast a 1 megapixel camera like some nokia and sony ericcsons. Why not give it to the ROKR since it is loaded with so many features. But the flash on the camera really helps when your taking close pictures in poor lighted areas. Theres many features on this phone that i love and the best ones is that it holds a memory card so you could upload music/usb cable. I could tranfer many things like songs and pictures to and from my computer. I dont even use itunes, as long as it plays mp3s, im good. Well im satisfied with this phone and i recommend it to everyone. I give it 9.9 out of 10.
The specs of the E1 differs from region to region.
I had mine here in the Philippines and in can only accept 50 songs in its iTunes. E1 here comes bundled with 256MB TransFlash cards. As far as I know, E1 in the US can accept 100 songs in its iTunes. Even with 256MB card, Asian E1 can only have 50. If your E1 accepts 100 songs but you only have 256MB card, you must upgrade to 512MB if you want to take advantage of your 100 song capacity. The song capacity is relative to your TF card capacity.
To save up on memory space, in your iTunes application on your coputer, go to preferences and select AAC in importing and converting your songs. 128kbps (bit rate) in AAC is already a high-quality setting compared to the high-quality setting of MP3 which 196kbps. In other words, 128kbps AAC sound the same with 196kbps MP3. The lower the bit rate the lower the bit size. Use AAC for iTunes files because, after all, its an iPod (Apple) phone and AAC is Apple's innovation.
When your iTunes songs don't play continously, try adjusting your REPEAT and SHUFFLE settings.
And yes, after a call iTunes won't play back automatically but it shouldn't matter much because all you need to do is toggle the joystick up to activate play.
As for removing the keypad sound, go to Ring Styles>Loud Detail/Soft Detail/Vibe Then Ring Detail>Key Volume and you're set.
As with the side lights, it really doesn't sync with iTunes but rather lights up only in-sync with background noise, call receiving, MMS/EMS/SMS receiving, charging, and Bluetooth activity.
If you noticed the keypad, no light comes up if you're in a bright spot. Try moving to a darker area and your keypad light comes on. Its like there is a photo-sensor built inside and beneath the keys.
Its true that picture/video quality is not so good, but it is rather decent. You see, this is primarily a phone. If you want good pictures/videos, get yourself a digital camera.
As with your computer not recognizing your phone as a USB device, go to Settings>Connectivity>USB Settings. The default connection should be Data/Fax Connection if you want to use your phone as data storage device. And the default connection should be Memory Card if you want to use your phone for iTunes storage. See, our E1 comes with built-in Mobile Phone Tools and hence there's no need to buy separate Mobile Phone Tools software.
As I had observed, the finish of the silver accent on the phone's exterior really fades. And the 2 exposed screws at the back of my unit shows rusting.
Here in the Philippines, cellphone shops can install iTunes on your E398 for 500 pesos. That's around 10 US dollars.
Question, does anyone from the Philippines know where to buy 2.5mm to 3.5mm headset adaptor for E1 except eBay? eBay's buyIT price seems high. I really wanted to use my Sennheisser earphones on my phone.
Last one, how can I view pictures/videos on full screen in my E1? The net version of E1's specs & features said so.
eMail me if you have questions on your E1 phone.
MOTO rocks! Peace!
