    5-0 out of 5 stars The best phone ever!
    The samsung E715 phone is the best. This phone works great. Takes great pics and battery life last for ever. This great lil phone can take a beating and yet it still works. No problem with this phone.

    1-0 out of 5 stars the worst phone from samsung...crap....
    this crappy Samsung E715.. is the worst i have ever seeen. i've owned it for a year and it started to have the same display problem ( like many other customers of the e715).... and after exchanging the phone with t-mobile, the display is fine but the phone started to give queer ringtone sounds. the ringtone is singing very very fast and its such a pain to hear your phone ring!!!!! my first phone had problem with the phone book also!! it would delete the phone book entries stored to the phone overnight. initially i thought it was coz of over charging, but it was going on every couple of weeks and i had to call t-mobile to replace my phone. the picture quality is dreadfully poor... no individual ringtone can be given to each number but has a group ringtone option ( which is sick to have... no individual option but a group option... "r u using ur brains SAMSUNG engineers....").. no option of saving the pictures to the simcard...( it was painful to lose all my 100 odd pics when i had to return my phone for exchange and i lost interest in taking pics anymore after i got the exchange phone). i called t-mobile to make my 2nd exchange. my friend also had the same problems as i had and i would strongly recommend t-mobile to discontinue issuing this model any more and pray god to give the Samsung engineers useful brains to think better and make better phones!!!!!!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not A Bad Little Phone
    I've had the E715 for about 8 months and it's been a fine phone. I made the switch from the Motorola V300 when I had calls that were getting dropped (turns out it's T-Mobile, not the phone, as I've had the same problems with this phone).

    I wish I had kept the V300.

    The Good:
    * It's a cute phone. Very attractive.
    * It lights up when on silent, which is a plus.
    * The camera isn't bad - better than most camera phones (non mega-pixel phones anyway).
    * The disk space is excellent. You can have many photos stored on the phone at once.

    The Bad:
    * The battery life is terrible. I have to charge this phone every night. I used to charge my V300 twice a week.
    * The ringtones are TERRIBLE. As you know, you can't download a "normal" ringtone from T-Mobile. ALL of the ringtones that come with the phone are dreadful, and borderline ridiculous. There is no simple ringtone located on the phone.
    * There is a button on the side of the phone that activates the camera with the flip phone closed...this means if it hits something in my bag, it ends up taking a bunch of black photographs (and making that obnoxious shutter noise sound, even on silent). This happens all the time.
    * No speakerphone.
    * The headset needs to be moved around to work, or you won't hear a thing. Not handy while driving.

    Overall, it's a good phone. However, my next phone will be a Motorola, as this phone lacks too many basic features. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Went through 2 of the same phones
    The first one busted in 2 weeks, I received a replacement, then the second one (same model) busted 6 months later.

    The problem was the same, I couldn't hear the person that was talking on the other end.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Stupid phone I ever had
    Don't attract with their mail-in-rebates. Key pad is slow responsive or even no responsive some times. I donot even find any good thing in this phone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars can be one of the best phones to own with the right parts
    this phone can be one of the best to have only if you have the right stuff. first you need the USB cable so you can transfer ringtones, pictures, phonebook, games, etc. as the phone itself doesnt get you much as you will be ending up paying for ringtones for $2 a piece at Tzones and all the songs are clean, short, and file protected. the phones battery life is too short i must tell you. constant use of talking on the phone will only last around 5 hours and the battery will be on its last legs. also the speed of the phone and the buttons. if you have used at least 70% of the phone the phone will start to respond slowly and getting from place to place on you phone will be pretty slow and can cause you to overpress the phone leading you elsewhere. the phone needs a button lock as whenever i walk around there are times when the phone would press on the side switching the Style ringer. in reality the phone should be a 3 stars but since its satisfied me with a decent Digital Camera Phone, sorta MP3 Player, and a series where i can have any song that i wish on the phone, id rate it 5 because of how the phone has treated me so far. but be aware that when you use the motorola Mobile Tools, which is used to transfer ringtones, games, etc, that it doesnt work on every computer. the program has its problems. also, id like to add, Mobile Phone Tools works on all Motorola V Series phones (ex. V60 V66, V300, V400, V600...) ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Every cell phone company has problems...
    AT&T/Cingular:This poor phone is suffering from a rating that is based on some guy saying how he doesn't like AT&T. I've had issues with them too (even issues including identity theft that ended up costing me a lot of money), but I hear horror stories about all cell phone companies. One thing AT&T/Cingular does right is that they don't outsource their customer service (yet) so you can call and speak to someone who you can understand.

    Phone: I've been using a 3620 for a while and have had some mixed reactions. Most people really like it, until they get upset when you sneak pictures of them. Visually it's getting to be a bit dated, it is neither small nor sleak. Performance wise, this phone does very well with signal, and I find that I can make/receive calls where other people cannot. There is a problem I have had with the battery and a friend has had the same issue with the 3650. If you set it down somewhat hard or slide your hand wrote across the battery the phone will shut off. In 14 months this has happened to me all of about 6 times during a conversation, and probably 200 times in my pocket. It's annoying to be expecting a call and realize your phone has been off for a few hours.

    Recommendation: This is not a bad phone, but my recommendation is you click on the "motorola" section and get a RAZR V3 (they're only $99), they are very sleak, the camera image quality is better, more talk time, and most importantly, a firmly set battery. My brother has been using one for about 4 months and loves it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great and Powerfull Phone !!
    I was using the older version the Nokia 3650 with the round keypad when I moved into my new home .. I was receiving marginal service. A friend of mine walked in with the 3620 and was able to use the phone with full bars al lover the house !! .. I switched to the 3650 and BAM !! perfect signal everywhere !! Great phone .. !!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Nokia 3620 - Great Phone
    I bought this Nokia 3620 about a week ago.Now, I know you are thinking "Well, hasn't had enough time to really see how this phone is going to work," and you are right.I don't know if this phone will stand the test of time, but I do know a few things.

    1.This phone's camera is the best that I have seen.My mom just got a Samsung E316.She paid a lot more for her phone, and the picture isn't as good.

    2.The phone's big screen makes it easy to read.

    3.There are quite a few menu's, but each menu item has a picture, and a caption, so you are sure what each one is.All the menu's are easy to understand.If you are in the text messaging inbox you can see who wrote you the message in bold, and then a preview of the written message below.

    I will say though that not everything about this phone is great.The reception of course will vary from service to service.I can't personaly say anything about Amazon or AT&T because I bought my phone at the Suncom store, and they are who I use for service.I will say though that the speakerphone isn't all the great (people often times say they can't understand me), but when I have it on the handset they can hear me just fine.I will also say that this phone is very technical.It requires a lot of patience to learn how to work, but if you have the time, the experience will be rewarding.

    So when it comes down to it, buy this phone if you want a good quality phone, that takes good pictures, has good reception, but is difficult to use, and requires a lot of patience. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars It's good, not great
    I bought this phone around 5 months ago. So far it works fine as a phone and let's me surf the internet without any problems. However, as a PDA it could be better. The screen has gotten a few dead pixels and the camera just plain sucks. I sync this phone to my powerbook, and I preferred using the mail and calendar programs from apple. That has been a mistake. I keep losing phone numbers and my appointments don't sync correctly. If you choose to use the palm desktop you should not have any problems but if you want to use the programs from other companies....good luck.
    Still, it is a pretty good phone pda, and I know that had I chosen to use palm desktop I would not have had any problems, but the reason that I bought this phone and not an ipaq was precisely because its supposed to be compatible with apple computer programs.
    If I had a choice now I would have boughta top of the line ipaq and used MS Outlookfor my schedules and emails.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great phone, but don't use AT&T.Use Sprint PCS!

    The New-Age Treo's are the best smart devices ever made! I have used the T-Mobile Sidekick, the AT&T Motorola MPX, a Nextel Blackberry, a Samsung i600, and even an older style Treo in the form of the Treo 300. And out of every smart device I have ever used, the Treo 600 and 650 are 1000 times better then any of them!

    1# The Treo's have large color screens with full keyboards, but are still small enough to fit in your pocket.
    2# The battery life is insanely long! Both of the new Treo's claim four to five hours talk time, I have found even longer. I often lay in my bed at night surfing the web for hours and hours, and by the time I am ready to go to sleep, my Treo 600 and 650 still have enough battery life to go a few more rounds.
    3# Because the Treo's are so popular the prices for accessories, software, add-on's, ect are Much cheaper then those for the other types of smart devices on the market. There is even talk by Palmone to start using Linux as the Palmsource software core, so there will be even more software available. And because Linux is open source, the phones will eventually be cheaper then those running the Microsoft Pocket PC. With the added bonus of the dependability of Linux!
    4# Because the Treo's are of the Candy-Bar style design, they are much easier to talk on. Because there is no flip, or antenna to fumble with.
    5# There is a software lancher called "ZLauncher" which has many features for your Treo's software interface. One of which allows you to see the exact level of signal strength. By using this tool you can so how much better the Treo's antenna and related components work, compared to any other phone on the market. I get a great signal with Sprint, but with Sprint and my Treo, my service is even better! I get signals with my Treo in places where my Sanyo and LG did not. In fact, I get better signal strength with my Treo, then my friends get with their phones!
    6# Palmone has a patent on a new design of smart device that they are working to bring to the market. A design nothing like the designs currently available. A PDA phone that will be thinner and still able to have a large full color screen and keyboard. SO the next generation of Treo's will be even better!

    The only downfall to the Palmone Treo's today, is price. That is because they are still new to the PDA phone market. Once they start making more and more phones, the prices will come down. And once they restructure their PDA manufacturing and company purpose in general, the prices will come down. I don't normally write reviews on phones, because I used to be a Die-Hard Motorola phone fan, and I guess still am. But if Palmone keeps making phones this perfect, then I will only buy their phones for the rest of my life! I can not say enough good things about these phones! Try one and see what I am talking about. Use it with Sprint PCS's $10 unlimited Visions access!

    5-0 out of 5 stars better than ever!!!

    RIM BlackBerry 7210 Phone - Next Generation (AT&T)
    by AT&T Wireless
    Average Customer Review: 4.0 out of 5 stars
    Wireless Phone
    list price: $199.99
    US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

    Editorial Review

    Overview

    Compatible with AT&T cell phone service, the BlackBerry 7210 combines a full-featured mobile phone and BlackBerry organizer with a backlit QWERTY keyboard and a host of communication options, including wireless email, text messaging, and Web browsing, all displayed on a 240 x 160 screen supporting over 65,000 colors. The 7210 operates on tri-band (world-wide) GSM/GPRS 900/1900 MHz service (1900 in the US).

    Calling Features

    Used simply as a phone, the BlackBerry 7210 fits comfortably in the user's hand, and can send and receive calls worldwide. Its flexible PDA format provides users with a nifty thumb-operated track wheel for extra-easy dialing and menu navigation. The 7210 also includes an integrated speaker and microphone and a hands-free headset, as well as vibrate, icons, and LED icon alert options (in addition to a conventional ring tone) as indicators of incoming calls or data.

    Messaging and Internet

    The BlackBerry 7210's embedded RIM wireless modem makes available a variety of wireless Internet services, including email with integrated attachment viewing, SMS, Mobile Data Service, and a calendar. Email can also be integrated with existing business email accounts, existing personal email accounts, or a new handheld email account. The 7210's SMS capability enables users to send and receive short text messages independent of an email inbox, and to use the phone's handy keyboard to very quickly exchange messages with other SMS-enabled devices.

    Organizer

    Organizer features are predictably robust. Its BlackBerry Desktop software (3.6 or higher) works with BlackBerry Enterprise Servers, which are supported by Version 2.1 or higher for Microsoft Exchange or Version 2.0 with Service Pack 2 or higher for Lotus Domino. It also supports Java development platform based on open standards. The BlackBerry Enterprise Server also features the Mobile Data Service (MDS), which enables always-on / push-based access to enterprise applications and information for users running a BlackBerry handheld, browser, and software development tools. Security features include password protection and keyboard lock.

    Vital Statistics

    The BlackBerry 7210 is loaded with 16 MB flash memory plus 2 MB SRAM, weighs 4.8 ounces, and measures4.4 x 2.9 x 0.8 inches. Its Lithium Ion batteries are rated at up to 4 hours digital talk time, and up to 10 days digital standby time. The BlackBerry comes with a USB cable for charging and PC synchronization, an international travel charger, and a swivel holster. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best product on the market if you have a BES
    There have been a number of less than steller reviews of the Blackberry 7xxx from independent reviewers not using it on a corporate network.People need to realize that these reviewers aren't basing their review on using the device as a business tool on a corporate network but as lone rangers with POP accounts - they just don't "get it" when that's all they have.With a Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES) on a corporate network, you get excellent attachment viewing and excellent web browsing with full graphics - both better than *any* handheld device out there, because both features are thoughtfully designed for a small screen mobile device.For example, the BES understands that web frame sets are useless if rendered faithfully on a very small screen, and renders the frames independently in order.I've used MapQuest on a Blackberry, CitySearch, Google, and many others.It will even render the MapQuest map well enough to use it to find a location. One of the best parts is that the BES puts the point of presence of the web browser *behind* the corporate firewall - so you can access internal corporate web apps without needing a VPN - which is a real pain on other handhelds. Companies can leverage this to build simple Blackberry oriented web apps that can bring incredible power to a mobile workforce.

    The Blackberry takes a similar approach in rendering Excel, Word, or .pdf files - allowing you to view the content in a way practical on a device this size without the need for you to pan all over the place to see the document and with good performance.Yes, you need a BES to do this, but there's a good reason why - the BES is the smart intermediary to reduce the size of the data transmitted and format it appropriate to the device, so you're not trying to do an idiotic thing like pull down a 2MB spreadsheet on a GPRS network.

    The phone integration is great - every detail and nuance thought out, and the battery life is close to amazing, considering the functionality and comparing it to any Palm or PPC converged device.

    Other killer features - the wireless calendaring, which allows you to create meetings and manage invitations all wirelessly.And how the Blackberry works with a corporate address book is excellent - there are 10,000 addresses on ours, and the BB is great at doing lookups and adding those entries into the local address book.Whenever you see a phone number in any text field anywhere, you can click to dial it, or add it to your address book - it recognizes phone numbers and email addresses in any message.

    In terms of the size - for what it does and for the screen size, it's excellent.What counts is how thin it is - much thinner that most phones, which means it can truly fit in a jacket pocket without making you look like a geek, if you don't want to wear it on a belt.And the way it manages ring versus vibrate and all of the profile possibilities is great, along with how you can set up personal rules and filters.

    For a corporate messaging manager, it's also the only mobile device that actually can be managed centrally, effectively.If lost, it can be remotely "killed", keeping confidential information confidentially.

    So, now that I've raved about what I think is the best communications oriented handheld device on the market, what are the *real* negatives?

    - Lack of third party applications.
    - Lack of music/video capabilities (this thing isn't a toy, it's a business communications device)
    - Lack of a voice command feature.
    - Lack of auto-answer when headset plugged in.(the auto-answer is either on or off, regardless of headset)
    - Can't (yet) wirelessly sync Tasks, Contacts, Notes.
    - No Bluetooth.
    - Can't render html except in the browser.
    - Doesn't support JavaScript in the web browser.
    - AT&T GSM/GPRS coverage still pales in comparison to TDMA.

    That's it.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Ok product, has some problems.
    I went from a nokia 8260 cell phone to the Blackberry 7210. I like it generally, but it has some issues...

    Pros:
    - Email support is ok for TEXT (read con's below). I use the device to connect to a pop account (we don't have the BES software on the exchange server). It works well, the webclient for pop service is ok, and the blackberry device works as advertised. I send and receive email regulary to the device. It's great for punching out a quick text reply, etc.
    - Good contacts sync through the software provided with phone. The navigation of contacts is nice and fairly easy with the thumbwheel on the blackberry.
    - Good calendar feature, as good as palm's.
    - Some nice features like auto-off and auto-on (nice to have it shut off automatically at 11 pm and turn back on at 7 am), block breaker game, backlit screen, etc.
    - Good battery life. Talk time and standby time is great.
    - Keyboard is good. Easy to use with your thumbs to tap out messages. WAY better than using a stylus and handwriting recognition on a palm.

    Con's:
    - WAP / WML / Mmode SUCKS. Content is poor at best. AT & T's hype over Mmode is misleading at best. If you have ever seen the internet on a computer, you will NOT be happy with Mmode on the blackberry. An alternative to Mmode is reqwireless's browser (www.reqwireless.com). It is a full featured html browser (NOT wap) and works fairly well for the blackberry... well worth the 20$ price. It works over the AT&T proxy, and you can view regular webpages on the cramped blackberry screen. Long and short - DO NOT BUY THE BLACKBERRY FOR WEB BROWSING.
    - Phone. Fairly poor reception, lots of background noise, etc. While you can use the headset, this model blackberry can actually be held to the ear like a regular phone. The problem is, it is fairly hard to get the speaker centered over your ear. Trial and error is best. Since switching from my nokia to the blackberry, I have many more of the 'can you hear me now' experiences... This phone is GSM. If you don't have GSM in your area - forget it.
    - Email. Well, it works fine for text. However without the BES (the blackberry enterprise software for exchange server), you cannot view attachments, etc. That is a real disappointment. There is another reqwireless product that replaces the email support with a real pop client, however I have not purchased that yet so cannot review it.
    - Software. There is little to no software for the blackberry that will run without the BES software on an exchange server. Be sure that if you decide to buy third party software for the 7210 blackberry you read the fine print of the software for the system requirements... if it calls for BES, you will need exchange server and the BES package. That ='s $$$$. Fine for corporations, bad for regular folks.
    - It is fairly bulky - not too bad, but bigger than any cellphone. It'd be nice if the device hinged in the middle, like the motorola two way pagers. I can live with it, but most users probably wouldn't like it.
    - What looks like an IR (infrared) output on the top of the device - isn't. It is just 'decoration' according to AT & T tech support. So don't try to sync with IR, beam stuff back and forth between Blackberry's, etc.
    - I have not figured out a way to use the device as a 'modem' for my notebook. You would think it'd be an easy thing to have it function as a modem over the usb cable used for docking. No such luck.
    - No instruction book in the box. That was just poor. While I don't feel like I HAD to have the manual to get it going, it'd be nice to have a reference book for some questions. Google is your friend with this device. Oh, but AT & T provides a manual the size of a phone book for Mmode. Yay... a manual for a service I hate.

    Overall:
    I like it ok. I am a fairly tech-savvy person, so it appeals to me. I feel a regular user would be ok with the device, but would need some regular support from a technical/engineering type. I have been using the device for approximately 3 weeks and haven't had it fail yet. I am getting ready to deploy 5 more devices to our sales team at work. I predict that I will have to do a LOT of hand holding with this device. I haven't had the opportunity to try out the Treo 600, however what I have seen of it in stores and it's software package (palm os - fairly bulletproof and tested), I'd imagine that the Treo would be a better alternative for regular home and soho users. However, for it's size, the blackberry is smaller than the treo or the tungsten. I personally don't want to have a phone the size of a brick. Blackberry is too big. The Treo IS too big. To eachhis/her own.

    Try it for the 30 day trial period AT & T allows. If you have any reservations after the first 20 days or so - TAKE IT BACK. This device isn't for everyone. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Average
    I have been using this phone for almost a year now.

    Pros:
    1.Looks sleek
    2.Nice games (Mini-Golf etc)
    3.Bluetooth is cool
    4.Plays mp3, wav files as ringtones
    5.Camera is alrite. Photos in bright light are good.

    Cons
    1.Bad reception (as compared to Nokia phones. My fone wouldnt work whereas friend's Nokia would work at the same location)
    2.Hangs (Freezes) once a while
    3.Some menu are hard to navigate (lot of clicks required)
    4.Display difficult to see in bright light

    4-0 out of 5 stars Hey, not so bad
    I got this phone for -$200 about a year ago, so I was willing to forgive a lot of problems.It actually turned out to be a decent phone.

    Pros:

    1.Bluetooth with wireless Jabra headset, syncs up nicely with my Mac.I'll never go back to using a phone without the wireless headset.

    2.Intruitive, computer-like interface

    3.Good vibrate function

    4.Nice long battery life

    5.Works pretty much everywhere these days, including travel abroad.Reception started good and got better after a CSR fiddled with it at the mall.

    6.Addictive mini golf game.

    Cons:

    1.When it's sunny outside, it can be VERY difficult to see the phone.You need to retreat into the shade or try to decipher the glare.

    2.Certain functions are buried in menus.If you want to get rid of the envelope from a voice mail, you need to go through 8 menus to get there.I'm also forgetting the 18 menus you need to set a speed dial, for example.

    3.Reception certainly not as good as Verizon, for the most part, but they charge through the nose, too.It's a trade-off.

    4.Quiet ringer.I keep the ringer at maximum, but I still can't hear it if I'm out of the room.

    Overall, it was a good choice, especially considering they bought me four months worth of service for the year.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Sony Ericsson T610: great design, bad reception.
    First of all, I've used Sony Ericsson T610 with both Cingular and T-Mobile service and found them comparable in Los Angeles (Verizon is best here).From comparing all three phones (Nokia 6230, Sony Ericsson T610, and Motorola V551) with Cingular service, I've discovered that there is a *BIG* difference in phone reception quality.

    Phone reception quality is as follows: Nokia 6230 > Motorola V551 >> Sony Ericsson T610. The Sony Ericsson T610 had no reception in my apartment, the Nokia 6230 has great reception everywhere.

    Overall phone quality: Nokia 6230 > Sony Ericsson T610 >> Motorola V551. (Though if reception is most important, you might rank Motorola V551 over SE T610.)

    Here are pros/cons of Sony Ericsson T610:

    PROS:
    -Bluetooth: easy to sync contacts, photos, etc. w/PC, no additional software required => great.
    -Great battery life
    -Great display resolution, better than Nokia 6230.
    -Nice OS design: easy to navigate, easy to read menus, ex. "silent" is handy
    -Small, sleek, cool-looking, phone
    CONS:
    -Bad reception!
    -Phone freezes sometimes.If turning on/off doesn't fix, try removing (and then re-inserting :) battery.
    -Sometimes keylock doesn't work and phone calls contacts.

    I recommend this phone if you have a good service provider for your area.It is cheap and easy to use. (Though, be wary of service providers locking the bluetooth.This hasn't happened to anyone I know, but I've heard that it's been a problem.)If I had reception in my apartment, I would have kept the T610 and sold the new Nokia 6230 on ebay. ...

    Average Customer Review: 3.0 out of 5 stars
    Wireless Phone
    list price: $299.99

    Editorial Review

    The Motorola MPx200 combines the power of the desktop with Windows Mobile and the "always at hand" convenience and quality of the Motorola mobile phone to make life simpler, smarter and more synchronized for the mobile professional. The The MPx200 features mobile versions of all the essential Microsoft applications you depend on, including Pocket Outlook, Pocket Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player, and MSN messenger.What's more, the unit's software is designed to sync seamlessly with email, contacts and calendar information on your PC. When coupled with a AT&T data plan, the MPx200 is a powerful companion.

    Design
    The MPx200 follows the traditional clamshell form factor, although unlike many clamshell designs, it has an internal antenna. The large, 176 x 220 screen with 65,000 colors dominates inside of the cover.

A five-way selection button allows you to navigate and control the Windows Mobile interface and there is also a jog dial on the left side of the device for easy access to basic controls. In addition to a headset jack, an SD/MMC memory expansion card slot is housed on the right side of the unit. It allows for up to a gigabyte of additional memory capacity. The power key and infrared port are housed on the left side of the unit, while a universal charger/USB data port is present on the bottom.

    Calling Features
    The MPx200 has all the latest calling features folks have come to expect. The built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear. Vibrate modes and custom polyphonic ringtones can also be set to your preferences so you know who is calling without having to look at the LCD. The included Pocket Outlook software features a contacts list that is cleverly integrated with the phone's dialing functions.

    Messaging, Internet and Tools
    The MPx200 is designed as a complete solution for people who want to bring their office with them. The unit comes packed with pocket versions of Outlook, Internet Explorer and MSN Messenger.

Microsoft's ActiveSync software keeps the device synced with all of your PC's Outlook information (via USB or IR connection). Users who want Internet connectivity on the road with their laptop or PDA can select an AT&T Mobile Internet package and tap the MPx200's wireless modem capabilities.

    A number of handy software tools are bundled with the MPx200 including a voice memo recorder, a calculator, a to-do list, and an alarm clock.

    Imaging and Entertainment
    The inclusion of Windows Media on the MPx200 means that you can use the handset as an MP3 player. The amount of music you can store is only limited by the unit's memory (up to 1 GB using the expansion card slot), and the included stereo headset is designed for music listening. For gamers, the phone supports Java-based and Windows Mobile game downloads.

    4-0 out of 5 stars ...and it's a flip phone.
    I have owned many phones throughout all of the years that I have been dealing with cellular networks. However, I can definitely say that the Motorola MPx200 is one of originality, intelligence, and productivity. The ONLY folder fold phone that actually has a working version of Windows Mobile on it is definitely nothing short of genius and engineering expertise. I can positively say that this is one of the best and most useful phones available now.

    Before anything about the inner workings of the phone can be reviewed, the first thing that is best to review is the one selling point that all buyers will look at first: it's immense beauty. Buffered hardened plastic with a neo-modern blue trimming and a perfectly-sized exterior LCD screen make the perfect combination for beauty at its zenith. There have been many beautiful clamshell/folder fold phones produced that can be considered BEAUTIFUL (RAZR, 8390, etc.), however for a one-of-a-kind phone like this one, it's exterior should not be overlooked.

    When one opens the phone (with a satisfying click sound accompanying that), one is welcomed by the casual HelloMoto flower design that is on most Motorola phones now. However, what one wouldn't expect is the Windows Mobile boot screen to show up. After the system has loaded, one is presented with a clean-cut interface that is screaming mobile productivity. The possibilities are endless with the included Windows Mobile OS (which, by the way, can be upgraded to Windows Mobile 2003 if you search hard enough). It can synchronize with Outlook seamlessly. It can send SMS, MMS (in Europe or Asia), and regular e-mail. It can even access HTML web sites with its Pocket Internet Explorer (with much ease, if I may add). It can play all types of video and music files (with the right software), and it can obtain streaming media.

    However, what makes its productivity even better is its compatibility. No special bells or whistles are needed for this phone to work. It charges and connects using a Mini-USB cable, which is included in the package (or it can be bought for about 20 dollars). The headset is a regular 2.5mm mono/stereo jack, however a converter can be used for regular headphones, which would be a good idea for MP3s. The storage interface is Secure Digital or MMC, which is relatively cheap and expansive (up to 1 GB). The downside to this is that it does not support Secure Digital with Input and Output functions (SDIO), so buying a bluetooth or GPS card is out of the question (that is what the MPx220 is for). It can, oddly enough, support an SD camera, which from what I heard takes good pictures. Gone are the days of searching long and hard for parts to a phone that may or may not be used for very long. This phones makes upgradeabilty easy and worry-free; exactly what a professional would need on the go.

    As I mentioned earlier, there are downsides to this phone, some of which are critical. Unfortunately, most of the bad qualities of the phone are found in its performance. Since it is a small phone, it uses a Texas Instruments OMAP 714 processor, which clocks in at 132 MHz, which is not exactly speed-crazy. That is blatantly evident in the Windows Mobile 2003 version for this phone. It does compensate for this by providing an abudance of RAM: 32 MB of RAM and 32 MB of ROM, which is plentiful, that is if you do not consider that the OS uses about 12 MB of that ROM. USB connectivity is great for charging, but sub-optimal for file transfers. While it definitely wins at not needing special software like most mobiles and uses ActiveSync 3, transferring files through USB are unbearingly slow because ActiveSync uses a large amount of overhead for the transfer, thus treating it as a true serial connection. Don't expect to transfer albums of MP3s in fire speed with the MPx200.

    Another big loss for the phone is its network support. Unfortunately, Motorola decided to make this phone a truly digital phone, making it only accept 1800 or 1900 MHz bands. This is terribly bad news for Cingular customers because the majority of that network uses 850 MHz. They would have better luck with the MPx220. T-Mobile customers, however, will reap the benefits of the phone's capability, as it has great signal EVERYWHERE and the call quality is above average, if not outstanding. People on the other line can hear me as clear, if not clearer, than I can hear them. The speakerphone on this mobile is comparable to some of the Nextels, which is truly outstanding (minus their terrible codec). The way it handles SIM contacts is flawless (unless you are working with T-Mobile; it can be picky on that), but the phone contacts are very detailed and elaborative. They are set just like Outlooks, so that does not require any explanation.

    However, how useful is all of that when the battery is not as powerful as the OS can handle?

    The MPx200's biggest drawback is its hit-and-miss battery life. There are many things that can be done to increase the life span, however its initial power is very very VERY low. I would expect, at most, 2 days standby and maybe 2 or 3 hours of talk time. Not much different than your i95cl (terrible phone, by the way). Just remember that that is just under Windows Smartphone 2002. Windows Mobile 2003 consumes even MORE power, so expect 1 day of standby and 1.5 to 2 hours of talking. To me, the features outweighed this, however, it depends from person to person.

    The final aspect of this phone that I will touch is what the phone is missing. For those that are looking for integrated cameras, this phone does not have one, however it does have SD options available, so that may be something willing to consider. The phone is also missing Bluetooth, so anyone that wants those cutting edge BT headsets are out of luck here; it does have Infrared, however, which works great. Finally, the phone is missing EDGE and 3G (UMTS), so if video conferencing and/or super fast speed internet are a concern for you, I would look elsewhere. Just keep in mind that this phone has HTML support; many of those EDGE phones may not (except other Smartphones, of course).

    In conclusion, if you are looking for an entry-level smartphone, or just a cool-looking smartphone that does not look like a slab of rock, then the MPx200 is the choice of all choices. I can honestly tell you that one you deal with a Windows Mobile, or any PDA-OS based phone, you will NEVER want to go back to just regular phone firmware AGAIN. It's just a shame that they lost on the MPx220 and the MPx. Those definitely had a future.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Run, don't walk, run from this phone
    A phone with so much potential is actually a nightmare.Unbelievably poor reception (all along a major California highway), lost calls and generally poor/eratic interface performance.Outlooks synch is a huge upside, but at what cost?I would call ATT for support, but everytime I try on my drive home I either get dropped or stay on hold so long I reach my destination before getting an answer.Save yourself the frustration...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Better than I thought it would be
    I got my Treo 600 (on Sprint) from my work. I always preferred the flip phones to these lareg PDA phones so my first thought was, "Well I can't complain... it's free". However the more I used the phone the more and more I found it to be a really good little device.

    First off it might be large, but it's actually a good deal thinner than most phones I've used. Thinking the large size would be a problem in my pocket I first tried the phone on one of those horizontal belt clips. Kept the phone out of my pocket, but the clip itself was rather bulky so I took a chance at just pocketing the phone. The slim design fit better in my pocket than any of the cell phones I've used before, which actually surprised me. It fits in my hand rather well too.

    The keypad took a little getting used to... like maybe a day or two. Once you get a feel for the little keys everything actually makes sense in the design. Also the large screen it touch sensitive to so technically you don't even need to use the keypad unless you are writing in contacts or something. The navigational buttons along with the hot buttons make it easy to get to contacts on the phone, emails, the camera functions, and more.

    As a phone it's neither better nor worse for me than any of the better cell phones I previously used. I live in Houston and only a few occasions have I not gotten a signal. I suppose the speaker could be a bit more powerful, but I can see some tradeoffs here for the sake of the design. The speakerphone function has become really usefull in the car or when I need my hands free. Battery life seems pretty good. I only need to charge the phone maybe once a week with regular use.

    I don't have too much use for the PDA functions aside from getting work email. I have found that a game of solitaire does kill the time when having to wait around for stuff like getting an oil change and what have you. I have found some uses for basic things like the calculator and calender, but aside from that most of the extra function stay unused.

    I have made good use of the vga camera though. I never expected high quality megapixel images so the image quality actually was better than I thought it would be. I wouldn't make photo prints out of the pictures I take from this thing, but for email and such it's fine. The camera has been extra useful during those moments you wish you had a camera for since I always carry my phone around. The amount of memory on the phone is enough to store over 400 snapshots. That's pretty cool.

    You can surf the web on this thing, however I wouldn't recommend it. The connectivity is rather slow and takes me back to the old 14Kbps modem days. Still it's better than nothing if you need to get a quick map/directions or movie times. The email on the other hand is fast. The phone connects to the company Exchange server so maybe that has something to do with it.

    The phone is pretty sturdy. More than once the phone fell five feet onto the concrete and didn't so much as flinch on the inside. The chrome looking parts on the outside however are prone to scratching. Looks like even having keys in the same pocket as an unprotected Treo can leave minor scratches over a period of time.

    I don't know what else to say. When I first got the phone I didn't think I would like it. An hour later I find that I really like it. Lots of functionality in a slim package.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Very Poor Signal Strength
    The Treo 650 I bought is ALWAYS two to three bars below other phones (at the same location) in signal strength. Sprint has been totally unhelpful in this regard saying they can find nothing wrong with the unit.

    I would reccommend against the Treo 650 unless one is sure, very sure, they will never be in any but the strongest signal areas.

    Sprint support has been a joke, except that I am not laughing.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The most perfect smart device I have ever used!!!
    The New-Age Treo's are the best smart devices ever made! I have used the T-Mobile Sidekick, the AT&T Motorola MPX, a Nextel Blackberry, a Samsung i600, and even an older style Treo in the form of the Treo 300. And out of every smart device I have ever used, the Treo 600 and 650 are 1000 times better then any of them!

    1# The Treo's have large color screens with full keyboards, but are still small enough to fit in your pocket.
    2# The battery life is insanely long! Both of the new Treo's claim four to five hours talk time, I have found even longer. I often lay in my bed at night surfing the web for hours and hours, and by the time I am ready to go to sleep, my Treo 600 and 650 still have enough battery life to go a few more rounds.
    3# Because the Treo's are so popular the prices for accessories, software, add-on's, ect are Much cheaper then those for the other types of smart devices on the market. There is even talk by Palmone to start using Linux as the Palmsource software core, so there will be even more software available. And because Linux is open source, the phones will eventually be cheaper then those running the Microsoft Pocket PC. With the added bonus of the dependability of Linux!
    4# Because the Treo's are of the Candy-Bar style design, they are much easier to talk on. Because there is no flip, or antenna to fumble with.
    5# There is a software lancher called "ZLauncher" which has many features for your Treo's software interface. One of which allows you to see the exact level of signal strength. By using this tool you can so how much better the Treo's antenna and related components work, compared to any other phone on the market. I get a great signal with Sprint, but with Sprint and my Treo, my service is even better! I get signals with my Treo in places where my Sanyo and LG did not. In fact, I get better signal strength with my Treo, then my friends get with their phones!
    6# Palmone has a patent on a new design of smart device that they are working to bring to the market. A design nothing like the designs currently available. A PDA phone that will be thinner and still able to have a large full color screen and keyboard. SO the next generation of Treo's will be even better!

    The only downfall to the Palmone Treo's today, is price. That is because they are still new to the PDA phone market. Once they start making more and more phones, the prices will come down. And once they restructure their PDA manufacturing and company purpose in general, the prices will come down. I don't normally write reviews on phones, because I used to be a Die-Hard Motorola phone fan, and I guess still am. But if Palmone keeps making phones this perfect, then I will only buy their phones for the rest of my life! I can not say enough good things about these phones! Try one and see what I am talking about. Use it with Sprint PCS's $10 unlimited Visions access!

    4-0 out of 5 stars HELP - Where find an unlocked item
    I would buy this item from Italy, so I need an unlocked item, it means non linked to any USA or ouside provider so I can use it in Italy by my personal SIM CARD.
    May someone help me?

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great unit, but the potential is underutilized
    After a nasty and EXPENSIVE run-in w/ another cell phone company, T-Mobile and the Sidekick (v. II in my case) are a breath of fresh air.Polite service, good to excellent coverage (range), reasonable, prices and there are all sorts of other uses.It's aCell phone, PDA, email server, web brower, text messenger, etc.Also, it is pretty rugged (it would have to be to put up with my chaotic and oftimes clumsy antics).

    Why not maximize the muscle this thing has?My only complaint is that the unit is, beyond all the goodies listed above,essentially a wireless modem with a USB port.Why not take full advantage of these qualities / features?

    Some people are.A recent review (JP Holloway "JP"
    Reviewer Rank: 400401) said third party programing is available, but fails to name names.I sure would like to know.

    Also, put Bluetooth in the next update.

    Motorola i730 Phone (Nextel)

    Editorial Review

    The Motorola i730 is everything a top-notch phone should be; it's easy to use, as well as sturdy and feature packed. With Nextel's legendary Direct Connect walkie-talkie technology, speakerphone capability and a vibrant color screen, the i730 is the right tool for getting the job done.

    Design

    Click the image to get a closer look at the i730's features. View the rear of the unit in detail.
    The i730 is no ordinary clamshell. Like other Nextel phones, it's built tough for construction and utilities industry users. The phone sports a large 130 x 130 TFT color display with 65,000 colors. Meanwhile, the outside cover features a supplementary monochrome display that can display time, call information, battery and signal strength, and more. The speakerphone unit is located below this display on the outside cover, while the trademark Direct Connect and menu scrolling functions can be controlled from the side of the phone. An attached cover protects the unit's USB data, handsfree headset, and charging ports. The phone's control pad also features a five-way button that can control most of the phone's functions. The phone's software features one-touch shortcuts to phone features and easy, icon-driven menus.

    Calling Features
    The i730's built-in address book can store up to 600 contacts for quick and easy management of phone numbers and email addresses. The phone comes with built-in polyphonic ringtones plus a vibrating alert and you can assign unique ring tones to contacts for audible notification and caller identification during incoming calls. More polyphonic ringtones can be added via a Nextel Online add-on plan. Voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family and associates as easy as saying their names. You can also speak numbers and control other phone features with the sound of your voice. Access the last 20 sent and received calls for quick call return or number storage via the recent calls list. A built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear, and the i730's GPS location technology pinpoints your exact location when you dial 911.

    One of the key features of any Nextel phone is support for Nextel's Direct Connect walkie- talkie technology. The i730 fully supports the service, which allows for one-touch conversations with anyone else on a Nextel phone. It's like a having a CB radio with enough range to cover all of North America. The i730 also features a walkie-talkie private speaker button. This switches from the external speaker to the earpiece for private conversations or to minimize disruptions in quiet environments.


    The i730 is built tough and ideal for construction and utilities industry users.
    Messaging, Internet and Tools
    The i730 features MMS-based support for mobile-to-mobile or mobile-to-email text, graphics and sound messaging. T9 text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

    Getting on the Internet anywhere is easy with the i730, as well. Nextel's optional Nextel Online package allows you to read and send e-mails, exchange instant messages and view your favorite web content on your phone. Nextel Online also features games, ringtones, realtime news and sports updates, virtual address books, and more-- all delivered to your Nextel phone.

    The i730 ships with a datebook that lets you book meetings, plan events, and set alarms that will automatically turn on the phone if needed. You can store a phone number or Direct Connect ID and initiate a call from a datebook entry (datebook Does not sync with other software programs). There's also a voice recording application that can record phone conversations if you need to replay directions or meeting times. A time and date clock are included, as well.

    Entertainment and Software
    For those who want their i730 to match their tastes, the phone allows you to customize the idle screen with your choice of hundreds of available images. You can also download new wallpapers directly to your phone with any Nextel Online plan.

    The i730 is packed with a number of Java applications. Pre-loaded applications include Advanced Calculator, as well as TeleNav 2.2, an application that provides audible driving directions. A demo version of WayToGo, a location service package, is also included. Both TeleNav and WayToGo take advantage of the i730's GPS capability and both require a subscription for full service. Meanwhile, games that ship with the i730 include a FOX Sports Football game demo, Bejeweled puzzle game demo, Zip Zavier adventure game demo. You can also download more games to the phone's 3MB of internal memory via the Nextel Online service.

    Vital Statistics

    5-0 out of 5 stars great phone, better customer service
    This is a review for boost mobile (nextel's prepaid service).I have a company phone when I travel during the school year, so I wanted a cool prepaid phone.I had (still do) a Nokia 1220 (Tracfone) and that phone was good (very basic), but I only had service in my local area (Houston) and no where else.After getting stuck at Chicago O'Hare without cell service, I decided I needed a phone that would get service in all major areas of the USA.I have not been dissappointed!!The rates are VERY reasonable for prepaid ($.15 - $.25/minute), customer service has been WONDERFUL, and it has (almost) all the cool features I had on my Sprint vision phone.TM, internet and walkie talkie (to Nextel and Boost customers).I hope what I read in an earlier review is not right about them getting bought out by sprint, because I was with them for almost 6 years and the customer service and plans went VERY steadily downhill!If you need a REALLY COOL phone and do not want a monthly contract, consider Boost Mobile.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Positive feedback
    The I730 of mine has served me now for over a year and a half. I have never had any major problem. Due to me using it all the time and dropping it a few times I am now looking for another to replace it. I don't have any problems with internet service, cell service or two way radio, unless I go out of the Nextel tower area. Which for me isn't very often. I wouldn't trade mine if I had to.

    3-0 out of 5 stars i730 is not that bad
    The i730 is a great phone, but I still think sprint is better. I gave this phone a rating of 3 because it doesn't recieve service everywhere you go. that's CRAZY! I thought nextel recieved signal anywhere. Currently I attend Wayne State and my phone rarely has service. On the other hand if I'm at home my phone never drops calls. Nextel really needs to step it up a notch, buI guess I can't say much about it because sprint will be buying them out soon. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Now Blackberry users can wirelessly read email, make phone calls, book meetings, and more--in color. In addition to being the first color BlackBerry, the 7230 is also the first with support for gaming, and it's one of the first with tri-band GSM-- a real must for world travelers. This integrated phone, email client (with support for corporate email servers), organizer and web browser is the ultimate weapon for mobile professionals.

    Design

    Click the image to get a closer look at the BlackBerry 7230's features.
    The 7230 follows the standard BlackBerry form factor-- a large 240 x 160 color screen placed above a QWERTY thumbpad. The screen offers plenty of real estate to view your emails, web browser content, messaging sessions and attachments. The popular BlackBerry user interface is here, too, which makes it easy to navigate the phone's functions. A jog dial is located on the right side of the unit for quick scrolling through menus and emails. There's also a standard 2.5mm headset jack that can be used with the included headset. A removable lithium-ion battery is housed in the rear of the unit, and there is a USB port for data connectivity.

    Calling Features
    Many of the calling capabilities folks have come to expect in a wireless phone are present in the 7230. A vibrating alert and speed dial capability are present, as is a contacts list/address book that is limited only by the unit's 16 MB of internal memory.

    Messaging, Internet and Tools
    The 7230 delivers the legendary BlackBerry email experience. With T-Mobile's BlackBerry Internet Service plans, you can receive emails instantaneously from personal and corporate accounts. With BlackBerry push technology, you don't need to retrieve your email. BlackBerry devices are designed to remain on and continuously connected to the wireless network, allowing you to be discreetly notified as new email arrives. Support is also built-in for viewing email attachments (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, WordPerfect, and PDF formats).

    If your company has BlackBerry Enterprise Server installed, you can take advantage of the power of wireless calendar synchronization. Your calendar events are exchanged wirelessly and automatically so that your desktop calendar and BlackBerry device calendar are synchronized. All your Outlook meeting requests, changes, and updates are instantaneously synchronized with your desktop. Make meeting requests, invite new attendees and more, all on your 7230. Users without Enterprise Server support can manually sync with their desktop calendars and contacts using BlackBerry Desktop software and the device's USB data port.

    Use the 7230's Web browser to access the Internet from the palm of your hand. Browse Web sites, get up-to-date stock quotes, read the latest news, check weather reports and more. Wireless text messaging is also supported by the 7230.

    The 7230 ships with a number of tools, including a calculator with a unit converter, and a to-do list. The unit's software is based on the Java platform, meaning Java-compatible games and applications can be added to the device.

    Vital Statistics
    The RIM BlackBerry 7230 weighs 4.9 ounces and measures 4.4 x 2.9 x 0.94 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 4 hours of digital talk time, and up to 240 hours digital standby time. It runs on the 900/1800/1900 GSM/GPRS frequencies. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.

    1-0 out of 5 stars stay away from t-mobile
    You better check the service everywhere you plan to use it in the period of time when you can return/cancel your plan. Because they DO NOT have coverage everywhere that they claim to.

    I've been on the phone with them for hours, explaining that it does not work. THEY DON'T CARE...Stay away from these scammers.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Do not get this if your email account is MSN or hotmail
    I have an MSN email account and neither Blackberry, T-Mobile nor MSN - not on the phone or online - could figure out how to forward my email to the blackberry.It turns out that "full email integration" with MSN isn't possible which means you won't get fully synced email.I spent 1.5 days - 36 hours trying to make it work. I wasn't going to eat until I got it working.I've ended my fast and returned the 7230 to Amazon.I thought I'd try the Sprint model 7750 since I already have a cell account with them and it is advertised to work with MSN - but the Sprint customer service person confided that it would require an additional purchase of $400 software to make it compatible with MSN - making it a $900 blackberry. She said "they (Sprint) don't tell you that". If you get the T-mobile 7230, make sure you have the battery in on the first step, so that your desktop detects the hardware.If you attempt insert the SIM card under the battery into the SIM "bed", make sure you realize the bed flips up like a murphy bed and the sim card slides into the slot then locks down.The directions are very unclear and the photos are too small to see.A piece chipped off from inside from my attempts to put in the SIM card (my SIM bed was stuck - in fact, I didn't realize from the photos it was supposed to flip up).I now cry at the mention of "T-mobile".It got so bad that they credited me $80 or so, equivalent to one month of the service I signed up for.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great hardware...Be wary of T-Mobile
    Simply put, this hardware device is amazing...Easy to use and intuitive.

    That said T-Mobile is really annoying.I signed-up for the 29.99 plan with Enterprise Server Access, which worked for 2 months before I was informed by T-Mobile that I would need to switch to a $39.99 plan to maintain Enterprise Server Access. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars A few hassles and a little buggy
    Overall, I am pleased with the Samsung v206, probably only because I am not any sort of power user or a gamer.It is attractive to look at, the battery life is incredible, here in the Bay Area, I don't seem to have any problems with reception or dropped calls.However, the phone sometimes turns itself off for no reason.I called ATT customer service and they said this phone is sort of known for this problem, and they can't explain it.They offered a refurbished phone, but I didn't take them up on the offer.It happens roughly once a week, and I believe it's caused mostly by how I flip the phone open.I'm not rough with it, by any means, so I consider this (if it is the real reason) to be unacceptable.

    A few other things I would change:
    I can't understand why this phone doesn't have speakerphone.It costs enough.
    Sending pictures is completely impossible.
    You can't customize ringers and set them for individual caller id's.

    2-0 out of 5 stars This camera phone has super annoying ring tones
    The thing that annoys me most is that there are no basic, simple ring tones loaded with this phone, and none that can be downloaded anywhere. I wasted time with Customer Service trying to get them to send me one simple ring tone - Samsung said that this is how AT&T orderd the phones and AT&T said that there is nothing they can do. Do you believe that there is nothing they can do?

    It has a nice, colourful display and a cool look, so it has great visuals and works fine, with the exception that:

    Incoming international phone calls with many digits aren't logged/stored in full, so you can't call people back because you're missing their last digits.

    My first Samsung V206 crashed; AT&T Wireless shipped me a new one and it works fine. However, all the numbers I'd stored on my SIM card in the old phone were transferred to the new phone labelled as people's cell numbers, whereas I'd stored some of them as work and home numbers. I can't seem to be able to re-label them. Nothing earth-moving, but also annoying.

    Cutting and pasting email addresses to move them between the camera options and the phone book options should be much easier.

    And as with all camera phones, the image quality isn't great. Grainy at best in low-light situations.

    Dat's all, folks. The phone is just alright; definitely overpriced. Get a cheap regular cell phone plus an ultracompact digital camera instead.

    5-0 out of 5 stars To help solve problems for some folks!
    I have the Samsung V-205 for abnout 2 months. It is the exact same phone, but just for T-Mobile. Many complain that the only way they can get the backlight on the front to show the time is by opening up the flip so that the front light appears. But they complain that if they are like in a movie theater that it is too bright. The way you can view the front LCD light without opening the phone it is by pushing down on the button on the side of the phone for about 3-4 seconds. This causes the light to turn on. ... Read more

    Nokia 3200 Phone - Next Generation (AT&T)
    by Nokia
    Average Customer Review: 4.0 out of 5 stars
    Wireless Phone
    list price: $199.99
    US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

    Editorial Review

    The Nokia 3200 is all about fun and self-expression while you're on the go. Fun features include a built-in flashlight and an FM radio. Specialized "cut-out" covers allow you to design your very own faceplate designs. On a more serious note, the 3200 is a powerful GSM phone with advanced data and messaging features, plus a built-in still camera.

    Design
    Don't let this phone's wacky looks fool you. It's made tough for a rough and tumble world, while maintaining a style all its own. The front of the phone sports a 128 x 128 color LCD display. The button pad features large, easy to press buttons. An internal antenna means there's nothing to snag or break off. The rear of the phone houses a CIF-resolution camera (352 x 288) camera, which is surrounded by a panel that can be removed for placement of "cut-outs." Personalizable cut-out panels are designed into the front panel, as well. You can design your own covers and slide them under the cut-out panel to personalize your 3200. Lastly, an infrared port is provided for data connectivity between the phone and your PC or other phones.

    Calling Features
    The 3200's phone book can hold up to 500 contacts with multiple entries per contact. It also features a speakerphone for easy handsfree talking. The phone features built-in polyphonic ringtones. More ringtones can also be downloaded from AT&T Wireless' mMode service. Pictures of your friends (or enemies) can used as caller ID alerts. For those times you want to keep things discreet, there's also a vibrate ringer mode. Speed dialing can be programmed for up to eight contacts so you're always one button away from your most important numbers. Finally, the phone keeps tracks of your last 20 calls.

    Messaging, Internet and Tools
    The 3200 is a powerful mobile messaging tool. Support is built in for sending and receiving text, pictures and sound via messages. When used in combination with the phone's built-in camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun. Instant messaging (AOL Instant Messenger, ICQ) is also supported and the phone ships with a built-in email client (AT&T messaging charges apply). T9 text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

    Getting on the Internet is easy with the 3200. It supports the GPRS protocol, as well as the new, high speed EDGE data protocol. AT&T's mobile mMode service lets you receive and send emails, read news headlines, get sports scores, download games and ringtones, and more.

    A number of handy software tools are bundled with the 3200 including a voice memo recorder, a calculator with currency converter, a calendar, and an alarm clock with snooze and a countdown timer. Nokia offers a free application on its website called PC Suite that facilitates easy synchronization of contacts, calendar events and other data between the phone and your PC.

    Imaging and Entertainment
    Use the 3200's camera to capture stills and then send them to your friends via MMS messaging or email. With an optional stereo headset, you can listen to tunes on the phone's built-in FM radio, which features 20 station presets. The phone also supports custom themes and wallpapers.

    Java support is built into the 3200, making it a powerful gaming companion for both online and offline games. The phone ships with three games, Bounce BlackJack and Virtual Me. More games are available via the AT&T mMode service.

    Vital Statistics

    2-0 out of 5 stars Ugh...
    It's bad enough that "The merger" has cost AT&T customers extra money and hassle, but it's really sad that when I dropped this phone and the screen died, I had to buy a WHOLE new Motorola phone.

    This Nokia was a pretty nice little phone for the 5-6 months I had it.The reception was pretty good and i really appreciated the loud ringtones.

    However, physically speaking, this phone left a lot to be desired.The plastic cover tends to scratch very easily, even though the only places it ever sat was on my desk, in my pocket, or in the console of my car.

    I'm still unsure how barely dropping the phone made the screen die.Oh well....

    5-0 out of 5 stars COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Battery time is not as good as my old Nokia 3410
    Voice recording is only for 1 minute!
    Not a flip phone but that dont matter much
    Well those are my pros and cons and this is a cool phone, much better than my old Nokia 3410 because it was'nt even a camera phone but now I have a camera phone like everyone else! It is decent and I could keep my Nokia 3410 number which was easy to remember because I had 2 sim cards because when I had a Nokia 3410, I accidently messed up the security settings on it and typed the wrong PIN code 3 times so the phone ended up being permanantly blocked and my 1st number was almost impossible to remember without looking in your phone book. Anyway I reccomend u buy it because it is cool and instead of having a plain walpaper with no colour on my Nokia 3410 I have Ray Mcoonie of Little Britain as my wallpaper! LOL!Buy this phone for a better version of the Nokia 7250i! Buy it immediatly!
