Does it have an FM turner or not?

Some people have posted under cons that it doesn't have an FM tuner, and some have posted under pros that it does. What's the deal?

E398--Poor Basement Reception--Any Antennas???

POOR RECEPTION!! I have used a Nokia 6800 for years, and despite being almost completely broken, gets almost full bars even in the center of my underground basement. Just got an E398, and it's great, except it gets almost no reception in my basement (I live down there). Any advice? I have Cingular in NJ. Are there any antennas I can purchase and attach permanently to the phone? Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!!

Voicemail notification

I am using this phone in the U.S. on T-Mobile and it's been great. However, the one problem is I receive a blank text message whenever I have a voicemail. It's annoying because I don't receive a voicemail notification, just a text from some weird characters.

Does anybody here know anything about this?

I contacted Motorola but they wanted me to do a master reset but I can't do that because I bought the phone unlocked and I want it to stay that way.

Thanks in advance.

New to e398.

I just purchased an unlocked E398. I am wondering about the text messaging. I can send them to people but i can't seem to get their replies.

In addition i get random messages from a "_@" and some symbol that looks like the empire state building followed by an "@". Is my setup configured incorrectly? Can i do something to get that to stop? I have weeded through the menus and nothing makes much sense to me. I noticed a "service centre number" that has a +1206.... it goes on. does that affect things?

I have T-Mobile.

any help, is greatly appreciated.

MP3 replay from Transflash

Can I download MP3 files (via bluetooth or USB from a PC) into this phone's transflash memory and then listen to them with headphones or the phone's speakers? Or does this phone only trasfer downloaded MP3s into its limited internal memory? Can I download MP3s onto the transflash memory outside of the phone somehow and then listen to the MP3s on the phone? Thanks for any info.

With the 850 band. I know for a fact that I can't use a phone on Cingular without an 850 band in my area, so I can't purchase any of the ones on eBay...

Thanks in advance.

Question on GSM signal in US...

I was looking in to buying the cheaper Moto E398 but can't seem to find a US version of the phone with GSM 850 instead of 900. Can anyone tell me how good the coverage is on the Cingular network, or GSM at all for that matter without the 850 frequency??? Is it work buying a phone without the 850??? Thanks!
