    Amazon.com Product Description

    This quad-band GSM wonder packs lots of Smartphone power into a small package that can provide all your mobile office needs. Loaded with Microsoft Smartphone software, the handset 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.

    Design
    The MPx220 sleek clamshell form factor is more sleek and svelte than it's predecessor's, while retaining the internal antenna design. The large, 176 x 220 screen with a whopping 262,000 colors dominates inside of the cover. A smaller, full-color LCD screen, which displays pictures, incoming calls, current time, battery life, signal strength and other information is located on the outside of the cover. The megapixel camera and flash, as well as the speakerphone unit, are also housed on the outside of the cover. A five-way selection button above the number pad allows you to navigate and control the Windows Mobile interface. There are also up/down menu selection buttons on the left side of the device for easy access to basic controls. In addition to a headset jack, a miniSD memory expansion card slot is housed in the unit. 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 MPx220 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 WAV and MP3 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. Enhanced voice dialing supports voice-to-digit dialing and name recognition for speedy dialing of contacts. The MPx220's voice recognition software supports voice commands from any user, not just a pre-programmed user's voice. Because the MPx220 is Bluetooth enabled, wireless headsets can be configured with the phone for total handsfree operation.

    Messaging, Internet and Tools
    The MPx220 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. In addition to keeping track of contacts, Pocket Outlook features integrated calendar and email functions. Email support is provided for IMAP and POP3 accounts, as well as corporate accounts. Microsoft's ActiveSync software keeps the device synced with all of your PC's Outlook information (via USB, Bluetooth or infrared connection). Users who want Internet connectivity on the road with their laptop or PDA can select a Cingular data package and tap the MPx220's wireless modem capabilities. The unit supports VPN and proxy Internet connections.

    You can use the MPx220's built in Internet Explorer browser for MEdia downloads and mobile web browsing. Cingular's MEdia service lets you receive and send emails, read news headlines, get weather updates, download games and ringtones, and more. Traditional text messaging, as well as video, picture and sound messaging are also supported by the phone. iTap 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.

    A number of handy software tools are bundled with the MPx220 including a voice memo recorder, a calculator, a to-do list, and an alarm clock.

    Imaging and Entertainment
    The MPx220's powerful megapixel still camera also features video with audio capture capability. In addition to a flash, the camera features a self-timer, multi-frame shooting capability, white balance and color control, as well as a time stamp option. The video camera's capture capability is only limited by the amount of available memory in the unit. The inclusion of Windows Media on the MPx220 means that you can use the handset as an MP3 and a video player, as well. Once again, the amount of music and video you can store is only limited by the unit's memory. For gamers, the phone supports Java-based and Windows Mobile game downloads.

    Vital Statistics
    The Motorola MPx220 weighs 3.88 ounces and measures 3.93 x 1.89 x .96 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 5.0 hours of digital talk time, and up to 200 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the 850/900/1800/1900 MHz GSM/GPRS frequencies.

    Amazon.com Product Description

    The Sony Ericsson T637 features a built-in digital camera, multimedia messaging, polyphonic ringtones, and tons of ways for you to personalize its look and feel. Quality materials and a large and super-clear color display give this phone its sophisticated personality, and the T637 features a bright, super clear TFT screen with 65,536 colors. It offers high contrast, saturated colors, and a fast response time that's optimal for displaying games and other moving content.

    Calling Features When you want to make a call, you use the phone side. Turn the phone around, and there's the camera side. When you're calling, you'll enjoy essential features like redial, vibrating alert, speed dialing, and side volume keys, as well as choice extras like sleep mode, menu shortcuts, keypad lock, SIM card lock, voice control, and status view.

    Messaging and Internet The T637 offers chat-like functionality. The Java-based (and operator-dependent) instant-messaging client lets you remain online even when you're not in front of your PC. Create your own personalized buddy list and send instant messages to your friends--you'll see who's online and who's not.

    Multimedia messaging (MMS) lets you compose your messages using images, sounds and text. QuickShare, meanwhile, lets you share content with other devices, other phones, even your computer--just drag and drop pictures from your PC to your phone.

    Bluetooth capability lets you connect, wirelessly, to a headset, a laptop, a PDA, or another Bluetooth phone, and users of Apple computers can synchronize their calendars and contact information with the T637 using iSync, Apple's free synchronization software.

    Organizer As an organizer, the phone offers features like code memo, calculator, business card exchange, calendar, tasks, contacts, memory dynamic, phone book, conference calls, PIM sync, and call list. Integral to the organizer is its clock, which includes a stopwatch, an alarm, and a handy timer.

    Cameras, Fun, and Games The camera couldn't be easier: just 1 click to activate it and another to take a picture. That's it. Then you're ready to save and send your picture to anywhere in the world using QuickShare. Want to view your pictures on your computer screen? The T637 can automatically enlarge pictures to VGA size (480 x 640 pixels). Software included in the phone recalculates picture size without sacrificing quality.

    And, mobile gaming has never looked better than on the T637's high quality screen. Force and sound feedback guarantees full-throttle fun. The T637 comes with a variety of embedded games, including the legendary racing game V-Rally 2, and many more are available for download.

    Create your own ringtone with the built-in MusicDJ using a library of pre-loaded instruments, rhythms, and melodies. Further, the phone's 32-voice polyphonic ringtones make your incoming calls sound like music to your ears. Use the ringtones you find in your phone or download new ones.

    Vital Statistics The phone measures 4.02 x 1.69 x 0.67 inches (102mm x 43mm x 17mm) and weighs a typically light 3.26 ounces (92g). The T637 is a triple-band 850/1800/1900 MHz GSM/GPRS phone. Internet settings include WAP 2.0, cHTML, a modem, OTA settings, and WTLS. You'll get 9 hours of talk time and 300 hours (12.5 days) of standby time. The phone comes with a 1-year limited warranty.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Can't beat the "cool" factor...
    I've had a lot of phones, and I prefer Motorola phones, but I also needed Bluetooth, and the V600 was just too expensive for me. But this phone is fantastic! The screen is vibrant, the sounds quality if great and the features are SO cool! I found this open source software, float's Mobile Agent (search Google), that allows the user to connect with the phone through the bluetooth connection and do all kinds of things with the phone, like assign photos and rings to contacts, upload images, audio, themes, etc.. It's a gadget geek's dream come true... Highly recommended.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Get functionality and more with the T637
    For the past three days, I spent a fairly good amount of time scouring the internet; researching cell phones. It was an arduous process. Painful really. Save yourself some time and decide three things you're looking for in a cell phone. This seriously helps get rid of half or at least a third of your options. Me?...I was looking for the following: ONE, a phone compatible with mac's isync. TWO, bluetooth. And THREE, great battery life. Bottom line, I got all three plus a lot more with this bad boy. You should know that despite two of the negative reviews posted here on Amazon, the T637 has scored extremely high with CNET, About.com, and many other tech reviewers. It scores high not just because of it's cool camera, bluetooth and mac compatibility, but also because of it's simple functionality. This is a great phone. Check it out for yourself.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Cingular service not sold in my area by Amazon.com
    I was trying to order Cingular Cellphone service from amazon.com. When I gave my zip code, it says the service is not available in my area. I called customer service and they told me to give some big city nearby. I gave Boston and it says service is available. I started placing my order and on credit check form it complained about the zip code being different from the service area. I called customer service again and this time I got the answer that if it is not available in my zip code I can not place the order. I tried few near by cities which are adjacent town and it says service is available. I was really confused about it. How do amazon.com really decides to skip some towns while providing service.

    I'm frustrated with this experience and miscommunication from the customer serivce.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Every day gets better with this phone
    Hi - this is a great phone. Bluetooth syncs with my mac perfectly. All functions I need are available intuitively and easily. It's the details with this phone that I love: the rounded buttons which allow even my huge hands to type with ease, the strong construction, the bright (and great in sunlight) TFT screen, the ability for it to use my calling cards and enter the numbers for me, the SMS and data counters, the "post-it" notes feature, the alarm, the games.

    The big stuff - RF and sound are great. Battery life I have found to be good (they clam something like 300 hours in the specs - but I would say more like 150 - still this is pretty good). The camera is only decent - but I don't consider this a big deal - its for fun and it achieves that goal fine. The menus are fast and access to numbers is easy.

    The phone is small and stylish, is smaller than my old T720 - if you include the antenna which you must! (ouch!).

    Obviously you can pay more and get better phones - but for the great price its selling for now (net $50 return with new 1yr contract), I don't think you can go wrong, especially if you want a candy-bar style.

    best of luck!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Data Pimp
    I returned this phone the same day I received it. I got mine with AT&T (sorry, can't write reviews for that one yet), and the phone was pretty much wired to hook up to AT&T's data services at the drop of a pin. All I wanted was a phone that had bluetooth, and I could have put up with a phone that was capable of WAP, SMS, ABC and XYZ, but with this phone, you have to tip-toe around these services if you don't want to accidently start the kb-meter going. There is the "on-line" button on the right side. Tipping the joystick forward (on the AT&T model) initiated a data connection. The upper right key did as well. And if you brought up the main menu with the icons, then the top two icons were data connections.... You get the idea. The phone was designed to funnel users into more expensive data services like cattle heading through feedlot chutes. I felt like making a voice call was buried deep within the phone... somewhere. It made me yearn for my old basic Nokia that did one thing and did it very well. Of course, most of the cell phones out there are turning into data pimps as well, so I don't know what to tell you. Someday, someone's going to get smart and design a cell phone like an iPod. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    With Bluetooth, expandable MultiMediaCard memory, an FM radio, and support for EDGE high speed data, streaming video and video recording, the Nokia 6230 is a svelte powerhouse. For mobile Internet users and those who crave high end features, this phone delivers all the goodies in a tidy, unassuming package.

    Design
    At first glance, the 6230 looks like just another candybar phone from Nokia. Looks can be deceiving, though, as this phone packs a lot under the hood. The large 128 x 128 TFT color display dominates the front of the phone and a five-way button just below it controls most of the phone's menus and features. The phone's 8 MB internal memory can be expanded using the MMC card slot on the right side of the phone (the phone ships with a 32MB card). Charging and data ports are placed on the phone's bottom edge. The 6230 also features a standard 2.5mm stereo headphone jack. The 6230 uses an internal antenna-- nothing to snag or break off. The VGA camera unit is housed on the back of the phone. Up/down menu selection keys are located on the left side. Finally, Nokia provides optional changeable faceplates for the 6230.

    Calling Features
    The 6230 boasts some powerful calling functions that make it a perfect part of a mobile office. A speakerphone makes it easy to converse without touching the handset-- a big plus for car users. Enhanced voice dialing supports voice controlled dialing of up to 25 contacts. There are also 16 built-in voice commands for controlling the phone's menus. Because the 6230 is Bluetooth enabled, wireless headsets can be configured with the phone for total handsfree operation. The phone supports Cingular's "Fast Forward" call forwarding device, which enables you to effortlessly forward your wireless calls to your land line phone.

    The 6230's internal and expandable flash memory can be used to hold up to 1000 contacts for quick access to email addresses and phone numbers. The phone lets you easily assign pictures to your most common callers. In addition to vibrating alerts, the phone supports polyphonic ringtones as well as MP3 ringers, allowing you to use portions of your favorite songs to alert you to incoming calls. Ringtones and pictures can be assigned to various incoming callers. Twenty-four ringtones come preloaded on the phone and more ringtones can be downloaded from Cingular's MEdia wireless web service.

    Messaging, Internet and Tools
    The 6230 is a top contender in the messaging and wireless Internet arena. Support is built in for sending and receiving pictures, text, graphics, sound and video via messages. When used in combination with the phone's built-in still and video camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun. Instant messaging is also supported via AOL Instant Messenger and the phone ships with a built-in email client with POP3, IMAP4 and SMTP protocols support (Cingular messaging charges apply). There's also a built-in web browser for MEdia downloads and mobile web browsing. Cingular's MEdia service lets you receive and send emails, read news headlines, get weather updates, download games and ringtones, and more. 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 6230. It supports the GPRS protocol, as well as the new, high speed EDGE data protocol. When used with a Cingular data plan and the phone's Bluetooth or USB data capability, the phone can be used as a wireless modem for laptops and PDAs.

    A number of handy software tools are bundled with the 6230 including a voice memo recorder, a calculator with unit and currency converters, a calendar with monthly views, a to-do list with priority levels, and an alarm clock with snooze. Via its Web site, Nokia offers a free downloadable application called PC Suite that facilitates easy synchronization of contacts, calendar events and other data between the phone and your PC. Synchronization is possible using Bluetooth or a USB data cable.

    Imaging and Entertainment
    The 6230 shines in the entertainment department. The phone's VGA camera can capture stills and video, both of which can be sent to your friends via MMS messaging or email, or to your PC via USB or Bluetooth. An included image-editing application lets you modify the pictures you take before you send them. Three minutes of video capture is possible with the 6230 as is streaming video, so long as you have a data service that supplies video content. With an optional stereo headset, you can listen to tunes on the phone's built-in FM radio or to MP3 or AAC audio files stored on a memory card. The phone also supports custom themes and wallpapers.

    Java support is built into the 6230, making it a powerful gaming companion for both online and offline games. The phone ships with two games, Beach Rally II, Golf. Multiplayer gaming via Bluetooth is supported and more games are available via the Cingular MEdia service.

    Vital Statistics
    The Nokia 6230 weighs 3.42 ounces and measures 4.06 x 1.73 x 0.79 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 4 hours of digital talk time, and up to 9.4 days of digital standby time. It runs on the 800/1800/1900 GSM/GPRS frequencies. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.

    Overview

    Compatible with AT&T cell phone service, the Nokia 6820 is one of Nokia's series of phones featuring a cleverly-designed flip-open QWERTY keyboard, intended to provide quicker and easier text input. When the keyboard is in use, the 6820's high-resolution 128 x 128-pixel, 4,096 color screen automatically rotates from a vertical to a horizontal orientation for easier viewing. There are also a bunch of other great features with this phone, including a digital CIF camera and video recorder, Bluetooth infrared data transfer, voice dialing, mobile Internet connectivity, high-speed data transmission, and more.

You'll also get the usual array of polyphonic ring tones, calling modes (including vibrate) and much more. Nokia also supports TTY/TDD (Telecommunication Device for the Deaf), and hearing aid support for the Nokia LPS-3 Loopset, (adapter and Loopset sold separately).

The 6820's XHTML browser provides high-speed data transmission via GPRS or EDGE, and access to work and private POP3 and IMAP4 email accounts. You can also send MMS (multimedia messaging service) packets containing combined image, video, text, and voice clips to compatible phones or PCs. To expand your phone's functionality, you can download additional Java applications to add to the ones already included with the phone: E-mail Client, Instant Messaging, Converter, World Clock, and Portfolio Manager, among others.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Why Blackberry when you can Nokia 6820?
    This phone can do it all! You can check your home, corporate, & M-mode e-mail. The bluetooth connectivity is incredible. The camera isn't exactly a megapixel, but who cares? This is a cell phone. Wireless internet is truly high speed if you have EDGE capability. It isn't as fast as DSL, but it certainly beats dialup.

    The best feature is the full qwerty keyboard. It takes a little time to get used to, but after a few minutes you will wonder how you got along without it. It is so easy to check and reply to e-mail messages that it almost makes the Blackberry obsolete. The only thing that a Blackberry has is the push e-mail. If you don't need the message immediately go with this phone. It certainly puts all others to shame. Nokia certainly put some time and effort into this phone. All I can say is that they did it all right.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Everything I Need
    This phone, an upgrade from my Nokia 6800, has everything the 6800 was lacking: Bluetooth, better web browser, smarter interface, and a camera. The key difference between the 6800 and the 6820 is that the 6800 has an FM radio where the 6820 has the camera. Also, the 6820 is smaller & lighter than the 6800. My favorite feature is still the full QWERTY keyboard; I'll never go back to the old triple-tap keys for text again.

    This phone is the perfect bridge between a regular mobile phone, and a PDA/PDA phone. Helpful "get organized" features consist of a calendar, note pad, voice recorder, alarm clock, wallet, and to-do list. You have great flexibility in choosing which features to assign to a quick "go to" button, and the items can include features, profiles, and even web site addresses.

    Overall, I am 100% satisfied with this phone and feel that it is well worth the price. If you are a PC user, you can use the Nokia PC suite application to sync your computer & phone. If you are a Mac user (like me), the 6820 is not yet supported by iSync. However, you can transmit files via Bluetooth and can send Address Book cards to the phone, also via Bluetooth.

    1-0 out of 5 stars NO AT&T
    AT&T has the worst customer service ever. Do not buy from them you will regret it. The phone is good but at&t is horrible. Expect unwanted charges on your bill.

    1-0 out of 5 stars would love to have it but Amazon has become a mess and...
    can't deliver the goods. After ordering, I received a notice from Amazon that I had to call AT&T to complete the credit process. When I called the number provided, AT&T told me that they had no record of the order and gave me Amazon's number - her supervisor had informed her that she was not to waste any time on Amazon customers. So after spending a considerable amount of time trying to work with Amazon people, I'm now told that they are standing by their original message. WHAT A BUNCH OF IDI0TS! how do they run a biz like this? It would have been nice if they could actually fullfil the order...

    1-0 out of 5 stars Amazon is great.. phone is great, just say away from AT&T
    WARNING: AT&T representatives ("Dawn: R361" and "Max: N360") themselves said during my troubleshooting (as detailed below) that I should NOT have bought through Amazon, and that they have received a barrage of complaints from Amazon buyers! I still really like Amazon, but they're integration with AT&T is non existent. People should not have to wait 2-3 days for service after they receive the phone. Buy the same phone on Amazon, but a different carrier. ... Read more


    6. Motorola V600 Phone - Next Generation (AT&T)

    Amazon.com Review

    Compatible with AT&T service, the quad-band Motorola V600 cell phone features Bluetooth connectivity, an integrated VGA digital camera, and MMS with video clip playback. You'll also get "Situational Lights"--a feature that lets you light colors for various types of calls--and much more, all displayed on a large, high-resolution 176 x 220 pixel, 65,000 color interior screen.

    The basic Motorola clamshell format continues to provide a solid and attractive option for any dedicated cell phone user. Its steel frame is compact and attractive, (the faceplate-changing capabilities seem a bit unnecessary) and it's loaded with all the essential features you'll need for power usage plus a few bonuses. You may find the volume a bit high out of the box, and it goes into hibernate almost as fast as you can dial a number, but these are minor, adjustable quibbles on a truly stellar phone.

    Calling Features

    See a detailed view of the phone's features,
    front and back.

    Uploaded UploadedUsed simply as a cell phone, the V600 features a 4-way scroll key with multiple dedicated function keys for easy menu navigation. Primary calling features include voice dialing, integrated speakerphone, vibrate mode, call timers, redial, missed call indicator, call log, any-key answer, auto-answer, auto-redial, roaming indicator, speed dial, linked (credit card) dialing, phonebook look-up, phonebook scroll, mute control, no-answer transfer, one-touch 911, system select, usage alert, and a phone book of up to 1250 entries, including picture caller ID functionality. When the phone is closed, its external screen (two lines, 96 x 32 pixels) displays caller ID, date, time, and various status icons, including text message waiting, voice message waiting, battery and signal strength, and voice and message mail. There's even a blue backlight for nighttime viewing.

    The V600 sports well-placed, well-machined keys, and its compact size does nothing to hinder dialing even for large-fingered users. The solid scroll keys bring you to very intuitive menus presented nicely on a single screen, marked by functional but showier-than-necessary graphics. There are also dedicated external buttons for speaker volume, voice recording, and ring volume.

    Messaging and Internet
    The advanced MMS capabilities built in to the V600 enable users to send, edit, forward, and receive image, text, audio, and video messages over the wireless Internet, to and from compatible phones or PCs. (Messages can run up to 100k in size.) You'll also get instant messaging capability, messaging templates, SMS two-way messaging, conventional email, and predictive text assistance. Beyond messaging, the V600's Internet connectivity lets you access online services such as stock quotes, road directions, airline information, entertainment, and more. You can also download Java applications (version CLDC 1.0, MIDP 2.0, 100k per application limit) for which the phone provides 5 MB total (shared) memory. High-speed data transfer and download round out the package. The V600 supports digital TTY/TDD functionality for the hearing impaired.

    Organizer
    Organizer features include a calendar, calculator with currency converter, date book with event storage, and voice memo. You can also transfer this data to your PC wirelessly via the phone's Bluetooth capability.

    We found the V600's appointment scheduling to be right in line with our fairly basic needs. Other than the universal annoyance of pecking out appointment details with the ten-key letter system (there's no QWERTY keyboard here as you'll find on some of the more recent, albeit early-adopter phones) this phone's organizer features provided enough data entry space for any busy person taking these functions seriously, but no more.

    Fun and Games
    For fun, the V600 sports a built-in 640 x 480 pixel integrated digital camera with zoom and brightness adjustment functions. Pictures taken with the camera can be stored in the phone or sent to others via multimedia messaging. The 5 MB of memory available for storing pictures is also shared with whatever wallpapers, screensavers, ring tones, Java applications, or games you may download from the Internet. The V600 also features 24 chord ring tone capability. Users can assign different tones for different callers in the V600's phonebook, and assign separate tones to denote incoming messages, faxes, and reminders. Wireless multiplayer gaming capabilities and two included games, "Bejeweled" and "Stuntman", round out the entertainment perks with this phone.

    Conclusions
    We liked this phone's very basic camera. It was easy to use and worry-free (nothing's going to break off), and the device can be accessed instantly from the phone's top level screen menu. From power on, it only took us a moment to take and save a fairly nice picture. However, photo quality is only adequate; about as good as you'd expect for a cell phone circa 2004, as opposed to a dedicated digital camera. We also found the ring tones included with the phone to be generally pleasant, and it was a breeze to assign a custom tone to a number in the phonebook, thanks again to the easy menu system. The included games were basic and fairly fun (at least once). In "Stuntman", the phone's vibrate mode provided road rumble as a little car skidded around a bland, full-color stunt course. But player beware! Once the game starts, the volume goes LOUD and is not apparently adjustable. Finally, there is a nutty little feature called Motomixer, which lets you modify various settings on lit! tle songs that you can download, emulating a very rudimentary, miniature studio console.

    In all, we found the Motorola V600 to be a rock solid, highly effective cell phone, with attractive and efficient graphic and audio capabilities. We recommend the V600 without reservations for any serious user.

    Vital Statistics
    The Motorola V600's security features include call restrictions, phone lock, and new password capability. The phone weighs 4.4 ounces and measures 3.46 x 1.85 x 91.0 inches. Its Lithium Ion batteries are rated at up to 450 minutes talk time, and up to 240 hours standby time. It runs on GSM 800/900/1800/1900 mode.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent phone with few pitfalls
    V600 is the best, most expensive cell phones I have ever had.
    Here are the pros and cons I have experienced so far.
    PROS:
    1) Pictures taken from its camera are decent when you see them on the large phone display.
    2) Plays very clear sounds and videos
    3) Free Voice dialling feature is a real cool feature.
    4) Datebook, calculators and capability to receive free text messages (on AT&T) can make you much more organized
    5) mMode subscription (AT&T) to surf the web can make you very productive.
    6) Free earpeice was delivered with my item
    7) Calls can be answered without have to open the phone!

    CONS:
    1) For AT&T customers, having the mMode key same as the general select key is a major problem. If you accidentally press the mMode key, the browser will launch and you will be charged for the data transfer. This is ABOMINABLE! Almost feels like a trap to make customers pay for web access even if they don't want to.
    2) The user guide is 250 pages long! It takes time to understand all the phone features.
    3) I had a little difficulty in putting my SIM card in.
    4) The top display is very small and has blue background which makes it difficult to read.

    Overall, a very good buy. It is almost a PDA at the cost of a cell phone.
    CONCLUSION: If you are looking for a new gadget to play with, this is a good one as long as you get it for under $100.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent phone, but !!!
    I had Nokia 6610 for 6 months, and have been very happy with it. But wanted to buy a camera phone phone with bluetooth, so here in my opinion is one of the best choices. After using it for 2 weeks, this is what I think:

    Pros:
    - Decent camera with 4X zoom.
    - Loaded with features
    - Lots of "normal" ring tones
    - Bluetooth (although haven't tried it yet)
    - Keys nicely displayed, big screen
    - Good battery life

    Cons:
    - The "on" and "off" keys are reversed, compared to Nokia and Samsung phones...A big nuisance.
    - The antenna, although improves signal quality, is a pain in the a**.
    - AT&T has the worst service, no fault of motorola.
    - Usual problems with clamshell phones, like having to answer a call while driving is much easier if you have a "candy bar" Nokia phone.
    - The phone is a little heavier than the new samsung and nokia phones, and is not as small as some pictures suggest.
    - Some of the menu features are hidden way deep. Nokia, in my opinion, has the most user friendly menu display.

    Overall an excellent phone, but seriously consider Nokia 6600.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Why the opposite sex loves V600
    V600 is the best, most expensive cell phones I have ever had and I soon realized that both men and women like it. Before I give the reason, here are the pros and cons I have experienced so far.

    PROS:
    1) Free, nice looking ear piece was delivered with my item.
    2) With headset plugged in, calls can be answered without having to open (or even touch) the phone !
    3) You can use it as a modem and for faxes!
    4) Pictures taken from its camera are decent when you see them on the large phone display.
    5) Plays very clear sounds and videos
    6) Built in Voice dialling feature is a real cool feature.
    7) Datebook, calculators and capability to receive free text messages (on AT&T) can make you much more organized
    8) mMode subscription (AT&T) to surf the web can make you very productive.

    CONS:
    1) For AT&T customers, having the mMode key same as the general select key is a major problem. If you accidentally press the mMode key, the browser will launch and you will be charged for the data transfer. This is ABOMINABLE! Almost feels like a trap to make customers pay for web access even if they don't want to.
    2) The user guide is 250 pages long! It takes time to understand all the phone features.
    3) I had a little difficulty in putting my SIM card in.
    4) The top display is very small and has blue background which makes it difficult to read.

    Overall, a very good buy. It is almost a PDA at the cost of a cell phone.

    CONCLUSION: A great gift for your significant other. While the men will love it for all the cool features and a chance to use some real complex ones like faxes, women will love it for its smooth top and chic look.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Worthless as any other motorola
    I was reading through the reviews and was wondering whether I was using a different phone than others. But the last time I checked my phone was Motorola V600 and it sucks just like any other Motorola phone.
    I used to have T-Mobile until a month ago and boy! did AT&T trick me with all the signals they show in their ads. My worst experience with a cell phone or a provider.
    I never get good signal. It gets disconnected often. With T-Mobile I used to have very good signal at work. Now I will be lucky if I have two signals out of how many I don't know, since I never went past 4 signal till now.
    Also the phone scratches itself. It has a lots of features like camera, browser and other. But, Hello I bought the cell phone to make calls. To take pictures I have a beautiful Nikon 4200 at home and verizon DSL for internet.
    Sound you hear is blurry when using the speaker phone and they could hardly hear u at the other end.
    My friend has AT&T and a Nokia phone which gets better signals than mine. Motorola V300 had a better look and it had a better material to get good grip.
    With AT&T I have not spoken to a customer service person because each time I call I have to wait for atleast 15 Min. Try that with this phone... I get disconnected within 5 mins.
    My suggestion:Donot buy this phone and never get AT&T as your provider or stay in back of the line of millions with all your grievances for the next two years. ... Read more

    Amazon.com

    Sporting a large, 4,096-color display screen and an unconventional, rotary-style keypad, we found the sturdy, feature-rich Nokia 3650 cell phone one of the best designed phones on the market, with excellent ease-of-use, crystal-clear reception, and a camera, video camera, and Internet access.

    In our tests, we found that the comfortable rounded base of this 5-inch phone rested easily our palm, and the clever retro button display took only a moment of getting used to. The buttons and disc navigation felt quite durable, with a nice, solid action. Menu navigation involves two thin buttons on the top left and right that allowed us to move in and out of menus; then the standard 4-point clickable disc provided more detailed selection. There's a separate button for the main menu prominently below the disc, and the faux-rotary layout of the number buttons helped keep the navigation buttons out of the way during dialing. The requisite call and hang-up buttons are intuitively marked, and a futuristic-looking blue light shines through the numbers on all the buttons for easy keying in low-light areas.

    The 3560 delivered consistent, excellent reception in a variety of testing environments, including a basement-level room that typically causes trouble with similar phones. The default ring tones were a bit too gentle for their own good; they were hard to hear in busy outdoor environments. The tones that we created using the composing feature, however, were quite audible, even in the midst of lots of noise. The vibrate alert was also quite effective and hard to miss. Nokia has also preloaded a variety of other polyphonic ring tones for alternate use, as well as a voice-dialing feature, which stores 25 numbers and was easy to use.

    Thanks to high-speed GPRS connection, users can access a variety of Web content, such as news, travel information, and entertainment specifically designed for mobile phones via an XHTML browser, which supports pages written in both HTML and WML (Wireless Markup Language). The 3650's calendar, phone book, and to-do list can all be synchronized with a PC using Nokia 3650 PC Suite software. This phone also supports Java for downloading business applications, and built-in Bluetooth and infrared connections empower users to send photos and text in either e-mail or MMS format to a PC or to another compatible wireless device. Some of the downloadable Java and Symbian applications provided by Nokia through their website include Merriam-Webster Word Search, and games like Racing Fever, Avant Go, and Terminator.

    The phone's digital VGA camera is cleverly built in to the back of phone, and can store up to 1,000 photos at 640 x 480 megapixel resolution on its (upgradeable) 16 MB memory card. Also, the Nokia 3650's photo capability is immediately accessible from the top-level display menu, so unlike other phones it was easy to snap a photo at a moment's notice. The camera records images in standard, portrait, and a nighttime mode.

    With the same basic set of controls, RealOne software lets the video recording function capture short, low-fidelity sound and video clips for immediate MP4 video playback on the generous screen or for sending to another Web-enabled user. The 15-frames-per-second video recording rate delivers stuttering, delayed images that look sort of like Neil Armstrong's transmissions from the Moon. We found this all very entertaining, and potentially useful for transmitting small bits of information, but hard to take seriously as a true video recording device.

    Among the scores of additional features on this phone are text messaging templates, where you create a basic message (like "Let's eat at --- ") then fill in the blank as you wish; a foreign currency and units converter for the jet set crowd, and a "favorites" folder to store Web shortcuts and links. For hearing-impaired customers, Nokia even provides TTY/TDD (Telecommunication Device for the Deaf) compatibility. The headset included with this phone is functional, and Li-Ion battery comes rated for up to 4 hours of digital talk and 200 hours of digital standby time. The phone comes with a refreshingly well-written manual. While decorative faceplates and other accessories are available, we found that even without them, the Nokia 3650 is one of the most coolest phones we've ever laid our hands on. --Erik Hammen

      How We Tested Battery Talk/Standby Time

      When reading our reviews, you should view the test results of mobile-phonebattery talk time and standby time as relative information only. Many variables,including carrier signal strength at your location, signal consistency(including incoming and outgoing calls), display and ringer settings, andbattery charging methods and history, will affect performance. When handsetmanufacturers and mobile phone carriers list talk-time and standby-time ratings,they usually include disclaimers about variable performance and often refer tothe times they publish as maximum times. Some quote expected battery liferanges, and in this case you're probably safe to assume you'll experience atleast the minimum rated range. Note that manufacturers of dual-mode digital andanalog handsets publish battery-life rates for both digital and analog modes, asanalog mode consumes much more power than digital mode.

      Our Tests: We tested digital-mode talk and standby times with each phone.Prior to each test, we fully charged the phone's battery according to themanufacturer's directions. To test digital-phone talk time, we turned the phoneon, established a digital carrier signal, dialed a number in our test lab, and,when the call rang through, took the receiving phone's handset off the hook.When all went well, we didn't do anything else except record the time when thephone died. In a couple of cases, the phones lost the signal and dropped thecalls. If we were right there and could redial, we did so immediately andcontinued running the test. Otherwise, we halted the test, recharged thebattery, and started the test over. Assuming consistent carrier-signal strength,this test should represent best-case talk time. And it's worth noting thatseveral phones' talk-time performance significantly exceeded the manufacturers'ratings.

      To test digital-phone standby time, we turned the phone on, established acarrier signal, and left the phone in standby mode. We checked the phone everyfew hours (for what was often days on end) until the phone finally cut out.Since no outgoing or incoming calls occurred during testing and because thephone was not moved, this method should represent best-case standby time, againassuming consistent carrier signal strength.

      The PROs
      - amazingly useful device that is far more than a phone
      - the PDA features such as contacts, calendar, note pad,
      calculator all work well.
      - Great User Interface designed to work with one hand
      - The camera is useful and fun. If you attach a photo to a contact,
      then a thumbnail of the photo will appear when that person
      calls, useful if you are in a meeting or driving an want to see
      who is calling.
      - PC Suite does good job of synchronizing. I have my laptop,
      Jornada PDA, and 3650 all use the same set of contacts,
      calendar, and tasks.
      - 3Com BlueTooth adapter on laptop connects easily to the 3650,
      and moves the large files rapidly.
      - Battery life is better than I expected, given the large
      color screen.
      - The large screen allows for a lot of information and function.
      Great for browseing mMode (on AT&T).

      The CONs
      The version of PC Suite which comes with the phone has problems connecting to many BlueTooth adapters.
      The solution is to download the latest (Version 3.0 18-Nov-2003) from the Nokia site.
      Once I did this, and installed the 3Com Bluetooth USB adapter (download latest drivers from 3COM),

      everything worked perfectly.

      In summary, the 3650 is a great phone, and so much more.

      3-0 out of 5 stars Nice Phone - except for Mmode button on face
      The phone has been a good performer. It took a bit to get used to the round keypad design. The camera is functional but not better than my cheap Intel Pocket PC Digital Camera I purchased in 2000. The infrared interface makes tranferring photos a breeze.

      The real nightmare is the Mmode button on the face that also acts as your BACK button. I have been accidentally accumulating charges under $5 per month from the button being pushed when the phone is in the case. I had decided that the Mmode feature was clunky and not viable in the first week of getting the phone. I found out from ATT Wireless that this "feature" cannot be disabled. Therefore, my phione would continue to make connections on its own and I would be billed for them. Unacceptable. The Mmode connection should be buried in the menu like all other options.

      I ended up removing the right BACK / Mmode button so that connection was impossible. I have contacted Nokia via email requesting the connection settings within the PC Suite for Nokia 3650 to inhibit the Mmode connection through failure to find the appropriate server or service.

      1-0 out of 5 stars Amazon is great.. phone is great, just say away from AT&T
      WARNING: AT&T representatives ("Dawn: R361" and "Max: N360") themselves said during my troubleshooting (as detailed below) that I should NOT have bought through Amazon, and that they have received a barrage of complaints from Amazon buyers! I still really like Amazon, but they're integration with AT&T is non existent. People should not have to wait 2-3 days for service after they receive the phone. Buy the same phone on Amazon, but a different carrier.

      4-0 out of 5 stars a bulky one with gr8 features
      i have bought from ATT n i dont think we can send ringtones. n the other issue is that copyin the contacts to sim card. needs to be done one by one. if a contact has multiple nbrs, then each one shud be handled explicitly. i donno if it really had better options to do that. if so, plz ignore this. as u all know, it is bulky. except for these, this is a gr8 phone. i love it.

      3-0 out of 5 stars The phone was overall good.
      The phone was awesome most of the time. There was a few issues with the screen freezing and without an extra memory card it could only hold about 40 pictures. Another problem was the volume is awfull real queit and hard to hear along with the phones ringing volume even at the top volume it is hard to hear. But the phone has cool features and a great screen size. The internet is quick and real helpfull on it. And i never had an issue with reception. T-mobile has great plans at great rates!! ...

    10. Nokia N-Gage QD Gaming Phone (T-Mobile)
    by T-Mobile

    Amazon.com Review

    Compatible with T-Mobile service, the Nokia N-Gage QD is a GSM phone and handheld gaming console rolled into one. The N-Gage QD features Bluetooth wireless connectivity, a hot-swap MMC-card slot for memory expansion and games, and a 36,600-pixel screen. Like all the latest Nokia phones, the N-Gage QD runs on a variant of the Symbian OS, which allows fast multitasking between game applications, phone calls, messaging and other functions. Users of the original N-Gage will be delighted to know that the N-Gage QD operates as a phone without the need for a headset; hold it to your ear and talk all you want. It's also smaller and more jeans-pocket-friendly than the original model.



    The new N-Gage QD is smaller and more intelligently designed than its predecessor. Plus, inserting game cards is a snap.
    Overall, we found the N-Gage QD a stunning successor to the original. Nokia has certainly listened to users and made improvements in all the right places. Barring a few quibbles, this new gaming phone is poised to make a real name for itself in the portable gaming space, something the original model was largely unable to do.

    Calling and Multimedia
    Gaming is the heart and soul of the N-Gage QD, but don't forget, it's also a powerful phone with the latest mobile Web, e-mail and messaging features. While we liked the ability to use it as a conventional handset, Bluetooth is built in, so going hands-free is easy with a Bluetooth-enabled headset. If you're not Bluetooth-inclined, there's also a jack for a wired headset. Like ringtones? You can get creative with polyphonic sounds that get you noticed in a crowd.



    The N-Gage QD packs plenty of portable graphics firepower.
    If you have GSM or GPRS data service, you can browse the wireless Web using the built-in browser. We found these features tricky to set up and the Nokia interface for these functions somewhat confusing, but once we got things going, we enjoyed downloading some game tips and tricks from n-gage.com. The unit also serves as a wireless e-mail and messaging client with support for all the latest protocols (MMS, SMS, IMAP4, POP3, SMTP, and MIME2). We especially liked the Java-based expandability of the phone; with a data connection it’s fun to download new Java-based games and new game levels. You can also download productivity apps like calendars and planners.

    With this iteration of the N-Gage, Nokia decided to drop the FM radio and MP3 player functions from the device. We think these would have been nice to retain, but Nokia was intent on making the N-Gage QD more exclusively focused on gaming. Nokia has retained multiplayer gaming via Bluetooth so you can still go head-to-head with up to four players via a wireless connection.

    Gaming
    Okay, the meat and potatoes. The Nokia N-Gage QD didn’t disappoint when it came to gaming performance on a handheld device. The redesigned controls are far more user-friendly than those on the classic N-Gage. Gone are the days of clumsily pushing the directional pad inward to make a selection; a separate selection button is now available. The newly placed slot for games and memory expansion cards is one of the biggest improvements as users no longer have to remove the battery and cover to pop in a new game. The card slot is now easily accessible on the outside edge of the unit and is protected by a rubber cover.

    Our test model came with Ashen, a three-dimensional first-person shooter set in a macabre, supernatural world. Creepy-crawly things were coming at us from all directions and we found ourselves pretty immersed in the game--quite amazing, given that the screen is a little smaller than a business card. Graphics were impressive, too, for such a small device that offers robust battery life (Nokia claims 10 hours of play time on a single charge).

    We had some reservations about the number of currently available games for the N-Gage. Many are forthcoming, however, and Nokia has obviously made a serious commitment to improving the platform. The N-Gage QD is a clear and positive sign of what’s to come. --Joshua Gunn

    4-0 out of 5 stars So close....
    The T616 is a pretty good phone...sleek design, good phone functions, fun to have a camera included. But it has some limitations and questionable function choices. I would buy it again.

    Likes:

    Call quality fine.

    Outlook sync works well.

    Caller ID brings up picture of caller (once you assign a pic to the Contact's record in the phone book).

    Nice design.

    Can store lots of info about each contact.

    Voice command dialing (in concept, haven't played with it enough to know if it works).

    Dislikes:

    Poor documentation for setting up bluetooth sync: I know computers pretty well, and although this was my first bluetooth device, it should have gone more smoothly. Too many gaps in documentation. Worse, AT&Ts website provides no help, the OEM for the sync software (Extended Systems) refers you to Sony Ericsson for help, and the Sony Ericsson help desk in Toronto was counterproductive. Their suggestion was to sync one record at a time! And they were rude when I suggested there was probably a way to sync all records at once.

    Screen is very hard to read outdoors. This is probably the biggest flaw, and one which may be beyond the tolerance of many people...

    2mb of memory is not enough. You can store a fair number of contacts (500-ish) but not enough pictures, even after deleting all the nonsense pics/sounds/themes they include with the phone.

    The web browser function is ok on the sites formatted for the cell phone's screen.

    The "Find Top Ten Best Near Me" function is hysterical. This will find the Top Ten, say, mexican restaurants near you, based on the position of the nearest cell tower, which is probably within a half mile or less. I was in Plano, TX and had it find the Top 10 mexican restaurants nearest me...there are probably 30 within 10 miles, but the closest it came up with was 15 miles away in downtown Dallas...even funnier, it was The Mansion at Turle Creek! The Mansion is easily the costliest restaurant in Dallas; it is famous for having invented "Southwest Cuisine" but it is as far from being a mexican restaurant as, say, Spago's is from being a NJ pizzaria.

    Voice command - To be fair, I first programmed my voice commands in a noisy hospital waiting room. Since then, it hasn't recognized any voice command I've entered...so I need to reprogram it and try again.

    Overall: [Excellent] phone with good features...and a bad screen for outdoors use.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Bluetooth is great, pretty, other than that... not much
    This was my first non-Nokia phone, and I too returned it at the end of the 30 day AT&T no-questions asked return period. I've had AT&T for years, though this was my first digital. I've always had great customer service from them ....

    T616 Positives:
    - Beautiful looking, small, lightweight.

    - Display has great color graphics and themes.

    - Bluetooth synching my contacts via isync on my mac was fantastic. See below for limitations though.

    - Bluetooth for internet access: My friend uses his to access the internet via his Powerbook. When I saw that was when I wanted to buy this phone! But he has Sprint with unlimited data. AT&T doesn't offer an unlimited data plan. I imagine with AT&T internet access could get pricey.

    - Fun taking my friends photos (yes, grainy, but fine for a phone) and and assigning them to their contact info so that their photo would turn up when they called.

    - Good loud rings, sounds great though the first ring is softer.

    - AT&T customer service and return policy.

    However, other than that, this phone was pretty limited:

    - It took quite a bit of manipulation to get my mac's address book fields matching (several syncs to see what went where and reorganizing the contacts on my computer that were going into the phone) and it does not store addresses. Limited length on what you can save in the Calendar or transfer from iCal. Not a PDA replacement by any means.

    -The keys are so small (and this phone was the same dimensions as my last phone) I was constantly hitting the wrong ones. Forget texting or trying to enter an appointment.

    - Display: Tiny display fonts very hard to read. Agree with other reviewers too that its unreadable in daylight.

    - Slow response time. I like that you can press the joystick to select (rather than having to use a different key like you do on Nokias), to search for a name in a big contact list is slow... it hestiates between each step.

    - You have to have it positioned exactly right on your ear to hear what the other person is saying, so each call is this moving around the phone to get it just right. Once you do that though, the sound quality is crystal... but what good is that if you aren't getting your calls or can't make them?

    - Battery life. I am a very light user and had to charge it every other day at least. Other phones I've had could go many more days.

    - I couldn't get the phone to send pictures to anyone. Friend on Sprint couldn't get his photos to send to me either. Couldn't figure out how to bluetooth them into my computer but didn't try too hard.

    - Navigation system is counter-intuitive, though I was using this phone for 28 days and read the manual. To lock the keys if the phone has to go to sleep requires pressing a key to wake it up, then clearing what you've pressed, then pressing two more keys. Everything took more steps than my previous phones, and in the end the annoyance was too great.

    - Reception was awful compared to all my previous phones. Sitting side by side with someone also on AT&T digital, their phone (Nokia 6800) got two bars and mine was red with no service. This was in LA, NY and Boston metro areas. Sometimes it would tell me I had service but then suddenly I would get three calls that had gone to voicemail, some of them from hours earlier. Never had this happen before on other phones.

    ....

    5-0 out of 5 stars Small but Feature Packed
    This is a good phone, not the greatest I've ever had but the service is good in Oklahoma and Texas. I've only had problems becasue I dropped the phone one too many times beyond that its a great phone. The camera on the phone does exactly what it needs to its a camera phone not a digital camera. The bluetooth in it is great with Macs and Pocket PC's enabled with bluetooth. The phones features can not be beat.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good one
    As far as i now this is one of the best phone from sony ericsson. Its compact and very easy to use.

    Pros: It has a good battery life, I charge my Phone once in two days. You could talk for 10 hours max. The Menu is the best i have used so far and has a lot of cool feautures . The joystick navigator heps you navigate without seeing the screen. It has almost all the feautures you would want in a phone. The voice control is amazing as it could recognize all my commands but beware it sucks the battery to death in a few hours. It has got some cool themes. It also charges pretty quickly. The reception is clear on plain open grounds but looses power in buildings.

    Cons; The camera is a big joke. As it is with all high resolution colour display ,its very difficult to view in sunlight. The internet Mmode button is placed in a wrong postion that triggers the net now and then, unless you lock the keyboard. The ring tones are pathetic, I could find only one that i could hear.It has an old phone ring tone which is kinda cool. You could download new tones and wallpapers in a jiffy. The reception is not that powerful. The browser is kinda diificult to get started with.

    The bottomline : Buy it , its a good deal , but choose a good carrier. If i have to buy another phone , i would buy T616 again
    but not with AT&T.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great phone except for PC connectivity
    I bought this phone for my wife (she wanted something small and cute) - she loves the phone and size. I decided to get a Nokia 6820 for PC syncing (with Outlook) capabilities.

    Pros:
    + size
    + bright, crisp screen
    + bluetooth
    + camera is not bad

    Cons:
    + Contact manager does NOT have addresses
    + phone ringer too low
    + syncing with PC using Sony Ericsson's software is a tough process - its a mess trying to make the phone be recognized by the software (at least for me it was and I a software engineer working in the IT field for over 7 years) ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Motorola delivers Bluetooth, a megapixel camera, video messaging, TransFlash memory expansion and more in this flagship phone. Designed for Verizon Wireless users, all the tools and power a mobile warrior needs are packed into this premium tri-band clamshell.

    Design
    The V710's overall shape is similar in design to Motorola's high-end GSM phone, the V600. The V710 ups the ante in many areas, however. The internal 2.2-inch 176 x 220 screen sports more colors (262,000 vs. 65,000) than the V600. The full-color, 98 x 67 supplementary external display is another step-up feature from the V600. This screen displays incoming call information, picture caller ID, camera self portraits, signal strength, battery life, current time and more. The 1.2 megapixel camera lens and LED flash is housed above this display. An extendable stub antenna is placed on the top right side of the phone. A TransFlash memory slot is located next to the antenna. A standard 2.5mm stereo headset jack is present, as is a combined charging/USB data port. Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's control pad.

    Calling Features
    The V710 boasts some powerful calling functions that make it a perfect part of a mobile office. The office-quality speakerphone makes it easy to converse without touching the handset-- a big plus for car users. Enhanced voice dialing supports voice-to-digit dialing and name recognition for speedy dialing of contacts. The V710's voice recognition software supports voice commands from any user, not just a pre-programmed user's voice. Because the V710 is Bluetooth enabled, wireless headsets can be configured with the phone for total handsfree operation.

    The V710's 10 MB of internal memory can be used to hold up to 500 contacts for quick access to email addresses and phone numbers. The phone lets you easily assign pictures to your most common callers. In addition to vibrating alerts, the phone supports polyphonic ringtones as well as MP3 ringers, allowing you to use portions of your favorite songs to alert you to incoming calls. A number of ringtones come preloaded on the phone and more ringtones can be downloaded from Verizon's Mobile Web service. The i710's GPS location technology pinpoints your exact location when you dial 911.

    Messaging, Internet and Tools
    The V710 is a mobile messaging, email and Internet powerhouse. An included email client supports POP3, SMTP and IMAP4 email standards (when used with optional Verizon data service). The V710's support for multimedia messaging means that text, photos, video and audio can be sent with ease (Verizon messaging charges apply). When used in combination with the phone's built-in camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun. There's also a built-in web browser for Verizon Mobile Web downloads and mobile web browsing. Verizon's optional Mobile Web package allows you to read and send e-mails, exchange instant messages and view your favorite web content on your phone. You can check your e-mail, trade stocks online, compare prices while shopping, access flight information, get movie listings and find directions to the theater. iTap 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.

    Verizon's Get It Now wireless download service is also fully compatible with the V710. This pay-per-download service features application downloads, games and productivity tools. You can also personalize your handset with ringtone downloads and digital photo-sharing tools using the Get It Now service.

    A number of handy software tools are bundled with the V710 including a voice memo recorder, a calculator with currency converter, a calendar and an alarm clock.

    Use the V710's Bluetooth capability to set up a wireless link with a Bluetooth headset accessory or connect to a computer or hand-held device to exchange and synchronize data. The V710, which supports the SyncML PC synchronization standard, can be used with Motorola's Mobile Phone Tools PC application to manage and synchronize contacts, calendar and other data with your PC.

    Imaging and Entertainment
    Plenty of good times are built right into this handset, and that fun is expandable thanks to the V710's TransFlash memory expansion slot. The slot supports an additional 128 MB of memory in addition to the phone's embedded 10 MB of memory. The V710's 1.2 megapixel camera with flash bridges the gap between phones and quality digital cameras. Support for up to 3 minutes of video capture is also included. An MP3 player lets you load up your favorite tunes and use the phone as a portable jukebox. Embedded animated screensavers and full screen wallpapers are built-in so you can set up the V710 to suit your tastes.

    The V710 is BREW enabled, meaning it supports games written on the BREW platform. Games are available via the Get It Now service.

    Vital Statistics
    The Motorola V710 weighs 4.06 ounces and measures 3.70 x 1.93 x .92 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 3.33 hours of digital talk time, and up to 150 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the AMPS 800/CDMA 800/CDMA 1900 frequencies. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.

    Sporting a large, 4,096-color display screen and an unconventional, rotary-style keypad, we found the sturdy, feature-rich Nokia 3650 cell phone one of the best designed phones on the market, with excellent ease-of-use, crystal-clear reception, and a camera, video camera, and Internet access.

    Take and share pictures with the 3650.
    (See detail)
    In our tests, we found that the comfortable rounded base of this 5-inch phone rested easily our palm, and the clever retro button display took only a moment of getting used to. The buttons and disc navigation felt quite durable, with a nice, solid action. Menu navigation involves two thin buttons on the top left and right that allowed us to move in and out of menus; then the standard 4-point clickable disc provided more detailed selection. There's a separate button for the main menu prominently below the disc, and the faux-rotary layout of the number buttons helped keep the navigation buttons out of the way during dialing. The requisite call and hang-up buttons are intuitively marked, and a futuristic-looking blue light shines through the numbers on all the buttons for easy keying in low-light areas.

    The 3560 delivered consistent, excellent reception in a variety of testing environments, including a basement-level room that typically causes trouble with similar phones. The default ring tones were a bit too gentle for their own good; they were hard to hear in busy outdoor environments. The tones that we created using the composing feature, however, were quite audible, even in the midst of lots of noise. The vibrate alert was also quite effective and hard to miss. Nokia has also preloaded a variety of other polyphonic ring tones for alternate use, as well as a voice-dialing feature, which stores 25 numbers and was easy to use.

    In Calendar, you can keep track of your appointments, meetings, birthdays, anniversaries, and other events. You can also set a calendar alarm to remind you of upcoming events.

    With the video recorder you can record video clips, and play video clips stored on your phone or on a memory card. Also, the video recorder is integrated with the messaging features allowing you to easily send created clips.

    Nokia 3650 provides various functions, in an-easy-to use interface, such as Camera, Video recorder, Messaging, e-mail, Clock, alarm clock, Calculator, and Calendar.

    Thanks to high-speed GPRS connection, users can access a variety of Web content, such as news, travel information, and entertainment specifically designed for mobile phones via an XHTML browser, which supports pages written in both HTML and WML (Wireless Markup Language). The 3650's calendar, phone book, and to-do list can all be synchronized with a PC using Nokia 3650 PC Suite software. This phone also supports Java for downloading business applications, and built-in Bluetooth and infrared connections empower users to send photos and text in either e-mail or MMS format to a PC or to another compatible wireless device. Some of the downloadable Java and Symbian applications provided by Nokia through their website include Merriam-Webster Word Search, and games like Racing Fever, Avant Go, and Terminator.

    The phone's digital VGA camera is cleverly built in to the back of phone, and can store up to 1,000 photos at 640 x 480 megapixel resolution on its (upgradeable) 16 MB memory card. Also, the Nokia 3650's photo capability is immediately accessible from the top-level display menu, so unlike other phones it was easy to snap a photo at a moment's notice. The camera records images in standard, portrait, and a nighttime mode.

    With the same basic set of controls, RealOne software lets the video recording function capture short, low-fidelity sound and video clips for immediate MP4 video playback on the generous screen or for sending to another Web-enabled user. The 15-frames-per-second video recording rate delivers stuttering, delayed images that look sort of like Neil Armstrong's transmissions from the Moon. We found this all very entertaining, and potentially useful for transmitting small bits of information, but hard to take seriously as a true video recording device.

    Among the scores of additional features on this phone are text messaging templates, where you create a basic message (like "Let's eat at --- ") then fill in the blank as you wish; a foreign currency and units converter for the jet set crowd, and a "favorites" folder to store Web shortcuts and links. For hearing-impaired customers, Nokia even provides TTY/TDD (Telecommunication Device for the Deaf) compatibility. The headset included with this phone is functional, and Li-Ion battery comes rated for up to 4 hours of digital talk and 200 hours of digital standby time. The phone comes with a refreshingly well-written manual. While decorative faceplates and other accessories are available, we found that even without them, the Nokia 3650 is one of the most coolest phones we've ever laid our hands on. --Erik Hammen

    How We Tested Battery Talk/Standby Time

    When reading our reviews, you should view the test results of mobile-phonebattery talk time and standby time as relative information only. Many variables,including carrier signal strength at your location, signal consistency(including incoming and outgoing calls), display and ringer settings, andbattery charging methods and history, will affect performance. When handsetmanufacturers and mobile phone carriers list talk-time and standby-time ratings,they usually include disclaimers about variable performance and often refer tothe times they publish as maximum times. Some quote expected battery liferanges, and in this case you're probably safe to assume you'll experience atleast the minimum rated range. Note that manufacturers of dual-mode digital andanalog handsets publish battery-life rates for both digital and analog modes, asanalog mode consumes much more power than digital mode.

    Our Tests: We tested digital-mode talk and standby times with each phone.Prior to each test, we fully charged the phone's battery according to themanufacturer's directions. To test digital-phone talk time, we turned the phoneon, established a digital carrier signal, dialed a number in our test lab, and,when the call rang through, took the receiving phone's handset off the hook.When all went well, we didn't do anything else except record the time when thephone died. In a couple of cases, the phones lost the signal and dropped thecalls. If we were right there and could redial, we did so immediately andcontinued running the test. Otherwise, we halted the test, recharged thebattery, and started the test over. Assuming consistent carrier-signal strength,this test should represent best-case talk time. And it's worth noting thatseveral phones' talk-time performance significantly exceeded the manufacturers'ratings.

    To test digital-phone standby time, we turned the phone on, established acarrier signal, and left the phone in standby mode. We checked the phone everyfew hours (for what was often days on end) until the phone finally cut out.Since no outgoing or incoming calls occurred during testing and because thephone was not moved, this method should represent best-case standby time, againassuming consistent carrier signal strength.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best FREE Phone-Entertainment-Internet-Business device!
    This phone can be used as a phone, digital camera, voice recorder, digital video recorder, full screen movie viewer, file storage solution, document viewer, travel info companion, foreign language translator, internet access, actual MP3 Music with voice instead of polyphonic ringtones. All of the above is expandable with the MMC cards (my 128MB MMC card holds several video clips, 2-hour movie, music files, my documents & presentations, photos and everything else). All features are easily accessible via menu button & j-stick. Also this phone is equipped with InfraRed and Bluetooth for wireless transfer of data between other devices. Nokia 3650 is based on Symbian Operating System, so there are plenty 3rd party software available for it - anything you could think of.

    This phone is not for writing memos! I own this phone for about a year, and I never type on it - there is no need. I hardly ever use the keypad.

    99% of people complaining about this phone actually complain about Amazon rebates, bad signal reception by their providers or they don't like the looks of the phone. All of this has nothing to do with the Nokia 3650 phone and it's functionality they are getting for FREE.

    There are no other FREE phones that offer the same features!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent phone - not as big as it looks like
    I simply love this phone. If there is a signal problem its just due to the service provider. got nothing to do with the phone.

    Best features I found so far:
    ******************************
    1. Clicked away photos which were very good web/email quality. (can't print them but who cares). I always got a still+movie camera in my pocket now.. the best feature so far i liked. The movie quality is thumbnail size so not useful.
    Caution: Don't take spy pics

    2. The phone has around 4 MB of memory + 16MB of flash card + 380KB on SIM card. Thats pretty good memory.

    3. Voice recorder is great if you don't have a pen/paper around to write messages while on a call...Just record the conversations for upto a minute.

    4. I could attach thumbnails to to my friends' names in the address book so whenever we talked, their face came on the screen.

    5. Calender, alarm (daily, weekly, monthly, yearly) and scheduler functions are very userful.

    6. Messaging to all over the world is great as most of the world uses GSM technology. I could send pics and chat with family/friends across the globe. This is tri-band phone so will work everywhere in the world.

    7. Ringtone volume is very low BUT ONLY in the normal mode. All you got to do is to choose the OUTDOOR profile and the ringtone volume will be sufficiently loud + vibrator mode will be on.

    8. Very lightweight, handy and not as big as it looks like in pics.

    Features I did not like:
    ************************
    1. Round key pad is quite annoying while typing messages so even my mom can type SMS messages faster on her rectangular keypad than me.

    2. Worst thing is that it doesn't have a data cable so unless you have a laptop with an IR port or a bluetooth card, you can't connect it to the PC.

    3. Phone material feels cheap and finish is not that good. Don't drop it unless you want scratches and paint marks.

    4. Don't believe when they say GPRS is superfast. It is NOT. It is an old 2.5G technology and it doesn't compare with the really high speed sprint PCS CDMA-2000 3G technology. GPRS is only good for viewing text based pages with zero graphics and they take their own sweet time to load. You may feel nostalgic about the old 14.4Kbps modem days in 1998. I got this phone after using sprint for a year but I feel the PCS vision internet is great and you can connect it to your laptop/home PC and get broadband internet (144kbps) for free !! Sprint doesn't encourage it for obvious reasons and you may have to download the dialer software from unreliable sources (like kazaa) but my roommate uses it and it works !! ....

    4-0 out of 5 stars nice phone, but hard to carry
    well, I owned this phone for 10 months now and its too big.. all the features are great. really a great phone...but kinda too bulky and heavy.

    also that circular dial pad isnt comofrtable. thats why they changed it for the new 3660. overall its a nice phone.

    4-0 out of 5 stars pretty okay phone
    I've had this phone for almost a year (...). I actually like the keypad, it's unique and not at all hard to get used to. The screen is large and colorful, and the there are many great polyphonic ringtones to choose from.

    The downsides might just be my specific phone or my service, but here they are:

    - phone is very large, compared to most others
    - my battery seems to last just a couple days when I don't even make any calls during that time
    - the ringtones, at the highest setting, are really quiet when vibrate is off, and extremely loud when vibrate is on.. not in between.
    - even when I make the volume the loudest, what I hear from the phone is still much, much quieter than my friends phones, and it's difficult to talk in loud/normal rooms.
    - I don't get service in the subway (understandable) or elevators (when many of my friends do) or even in stores, sometimes.

    I don't really use the camera/video feature except for the thumbnails of my contacts, which I find nice.. seeing a friend's face (small) pop up on the screen when I get a call.

    I find the to-do list and notes and calendar, etc, all useful.

    Overall.. there are nice features on here, and I guess the only negative thing that is certain to be in all Nokia 3650 phones (since the other downsides might just be my phone) is the big size.

    5-0 out of 5 stars no complaints here
    i have had this phone for a little over a year now and overall, i really like it. i like the fact that it is a little bigger than the typical phone so that i can find it in my purse. my reception is great unless i am somewhere in the middle of a forest, the screen is large and colorful, picture quality of the phone is the best i've seen amongst camara phones, and i've even dropped it a few times and it has held up nicely. all in all, for the deal i got on the phone, how could i even consider complaining? ...

    15. Motorola V600 Phone (Cingular)
    by Motorola
    list price: $349.99
    (price subject to change: see help)
    Asin: B000246E4U
    Catlog: Wireless
    Manufacturer: Motorola
    Sales Rank: 732
    Average Customer Review: 3.67 out of 5 stars
    US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Overview

    Compatible with Cingular service, the quad-band Motorola V600G cell phone features Bluetooth connectivity, an integrated VGA digital camera, and MMS with video clip playback. You'll also get "Situational Lights"--a feature that lets you light colors for various types of calls--and much more, all displayed on a large, high-resolution 176 x 220 pixel, 65,000 color interior screen.

    In our tests, we found that the basic Motorola clamshell format continues to provide a solid and attractive option for any dedicated cell phone user. Its steel frame is compact and attractive, (the faceplate-changing capabilities seem a bit unnecessary) and it's loaded with all the essential features you'll need for power usage plus a few bonuses. You may find the volume a bit high out of the box, and it goes into hibernate almost as fast as you can dial a number, but these are minor, adjustable quibbles on a truly stellar phone.

    Calling Features

    Used simply as a cell phone, the V600G features a 4-way scroll key with multiple dedicated function keys for easy menu navigation. Primary calling features include voice dialing, integrated speakerphone, vibrate mode, call timers, redial, missed call indicator, call log, any-key answer, auto-answer, auto-redial, roaming indicator, speed dial, linked (credit card) dialing, phonebook look-up, phonebook scroll, mute control, no-answer transfer, one-touch 911, system select, usage alert, and a phone book of up to 1250 entries, including picture caller ID functionality. When the phone is closed, its external screen (two lines, 96 x 32 pixels) displays caller ID, date, time, and various status icons, including text message waiting, voice message waiting, battery and signal strength, and voice and message mail. There's even a blue backlight for nighttime viewing.

    In our tests, we found that the V600G sports well-placed, well-machined keys, and its compact size does nothing to hinder dialing even for large-fingered users. The solid scroll keys bring you to very intuitive menus presented nicely on a single screen, marked by functional but showier-than-necessary graphics. There are also dedicated external buttons for speaker volume, voice recording, and ring volume.

    Messaging and Internet

    The advanced MMS capabilities built in to the V600G enable users to send, edit, forward, and receive image, text, audio, and video messages over the wireless Internet, to and from compatible phones or PCs. (Messages can run up to 100k in size.) You'll also get instant messaging capability, messaging templates, SMS two-way messaging, conventional email, and predictive text assistance. Beyond messaging, the V600G's Internet connectivity lets you access online services such as stock quotes, road directions, airline information, entertainment, and more. You can also download Java applications (version CLDC 1.0, MIDP 2.0, 100k per application limit) for which the phone provides 5 MB total (shared) memory. High-speed data transfer and download round out the package. The V600G supports digital TTY/TDD functionality for the hearing impaired.

    Organizer

    Organizer features include a calendar, calculator with currency converter, date book with event storage, and voice memo. You can also transfer this data to your PC wirelessly via the phone's Bluetooth capability.

    In our tests, we found the V600G's appointment scheduling to be right in line with our fairly basic needs. Other than the universal annoyance of pecking out appointment details with the ten-key letter system (there's no QWERTY keyboard here as you'll find on some of the more recent, albeit early-adopter phones) this phone's organizer features provided enough data entry space for any busy person taking these functions seriously, but no more.

    Fun and Games

    For fun, the V600G sports a built-in 640 x 480 pixel integrated digital camera with zoom and brightness adjustment functions. Pictures taken with the camera can be stored in the phone or sent to others via multimedia messaging. The 5 MB of memory available for storing pictures is also shared with whatever wallpapers, screensavers, ring tones, Java applications, or games you may download from the Internet. The V600G also features 24 chord ring tone capability. Users can assign different tones for different callers in the V600G's phonebook, and assign separate tones to denote incoming messages, faxes, and reminders. Wireless multiplayer gaming capabilities and two included games, "Bejeweled" and "Stuntman", round out the entertainment perks with this phone.

    In our tests, we liked this phone's very basic camera. It was easy to use and worry-free (nothing's going to break off), and the device can be accessed instantly from the phone's top level screen menu. From power on, it only took us a moment to take and save a fairly nice picture. However, photo quality is only adequate; about as good as you'd expect for a cell phone circa 2004, as opposed to a dedicated digital camera. We also found the ring tones included with the phone to be generally pleasant, and it was a breeze to assign a custom tone to a number in the phonebook, thanks again to the easy menu system. The included games were basic and fairly fun (at least once). In "Stuntman", the phone's vibrate mode provided road rumble as a little car skidded around a bland, full-color stunt course. But player beware! Once the game starts, the volume goes LOUD and is not apparently adjustable. Finally, there is a nutty little feature called Motomixer, which lets you modify various settings on songs that you can download, emulating a very rudimentary, miniature studio console.

    In all, we found the Motorola V600G to be a rock solid, highly effective cell phone, with attractive and efficient graphic and audio capabilities. We recommend the Motorola V600G without reservations, for any serious user.

    Vital Statistics

    The Motorola V600G's security features include call restrictions, phone lock, and new password capability. The phone weighs 4.4 ounces and measures 3.46 x 1.85 x 9.1 inches. Its Lithium Ion batteries are rated at up to 450 minutes talk time, and up to 240 hours standby time. It runs on GSM 800/900/1800/1900 mode.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good... some glitches
    After receiving my phone from Amazon, it was a pain to activate the phone through Cingular because some representatives had no idea what they're doing.
    Also, Amazon ran at least 9 credit checks under my name so I could not activate my phone at a Cingular store.
    After all the red tape, I finally activated my phone through Cingular Porting Dept.

    I had downloaded some ring tones but somehow they got lost on the phone along with some pictures that I took also.

    The pictures show up because they're attached to someone in my phonebook, but not in the 'picture' section.

    The ringtones were showing up under 'Ring Style', but not anymore.

    I've owned a few Motorola phones before, they're prone to software glitches, so I'm used that. I'm lucky that I have friends that work for Motorola. :)

    Also, one time I was receiving a call and both the outer caller ID screen and inner screen were both blank. I had to shut off the phone and restart for it to work.

    The phone has a lot of cool features, I like it a lot.
    So, just beware that it's not a perfect phone.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty damn good, if you can live with the address book
    I moved from Sony Ericsson T68, so my comparisons will be based on that as a benchmark. First of all, let me say that on paper this new fashion-conscious flip-phone is about the most impressive you can get: Quad-band, Bluetooth, VGA camera, speakerphone, 65k color LCD, dual internal and external displays, 1000 name address book, office tools (calendar, notes, alarm clock, etc.), polyphoinic *and* MP3 ringtones... you name it, it has it. It's small, sleek and relatively light. It even has pulsating color-coded ring-lights on the flip cover! If it's features you want, you can't go wrong with this.

    But I don't give it 5 stars, so what's amiss? Well, for a start the packaged battery is abysmal. It barely makes it through one busy day without a recharge, and certainly not if you use Bluetooth heavily. Motorola still uses trickle chargers whereas most of the other manufacturers ship fast chargers as default, so it even takes a long time to recharge. I've heard that the optional extra-strength battery will more than compensate, but that's an extra charge and honestly, poor battery life is simply inexcusable.

    Secondly, the phone book and office tools are still as brain-dead as all Motorola phones. The phone book doesn't have a simple "search" function, which means that if you want to call "Sumo" you can jump to the first "s" entry and then you have to scroll through "Salem", "Shahid", "Shujat", "Smock", etc. etc. all the way until you get to Su-. Verrrrrry annoying. Also, what's the point of office tools if you can't integrate them with your desktop? Well, you can but you need to purchase extra software from Motorola, and this software isn't the best. Again, Nokia and Sony supply this software free of charge so what's the deal here?

    In the end, I think the pros outweigh the cons, but only by a bit. There are workarounds for each of the issues I've encountered -- I can buy a larger (and more bulky) battery, I can jump to "t" in the address book and then scroll upwards instead of down, and I can use Bluetooth to exchange one business card at a time to sync it with Outlook and the Palm.

    On the plus side, hey, it's great to have a decent quality phone camera (it's actually not that bad!), quad-band roaming (with good signal reception!) all over the world, a beautiful bright color screen, and incredibly good looks. Plus, now I can use a Bluetooth (wireless) hands-free kit which doesn't get entangled with the car seatbelts. And that, I think, is the ultimate benefit here.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Nice phone
    This phone got a lot improved from the previous model of V300. Compare to V300 plastic cover and low resoultion of color, this phone sure gives you more of each things. A unique design with the metal cover, the bluetooth supported, 64k color and you can go with actual MP3 ringtone on it! It sound a lot better than the way V300 sound. The reason I am not giving it five stars - because battary life doesn't last long, the phone is a little bit haveyer than what I have excepted, the phone somehow lagging bad when you call out and receive calls.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Apparently there is a recall
    This seems to be an excelent product. I went to purchase it this morning at Cingular. However they are no longer selling it. Not many details were provided, but apparently there is a recall due to some bugs. This is no official information, but check before you buy it.

    Amazon.com Review

    Compatible with AT&T Wireless service, the Nokia N-Gage QD is a GSM phone and handheld gaming console rolled into one. The N-Gage QD features Bluetooth wireless connectivity, a hot-swap MMC-card slot for memory expansion and games, and a 176 x 208 pixels screen. Like all the latest Nokia phones, the N-Gage QD runs on a variant of the Symbian OS, which allows fast multitasking between game applications, phone calls, messaging and other functions. Users of the original N-Gage will be delighted to know that the N-Gage QD operates as a phone without the need for a headset; hold it to your ear and talk all you want. It's also smaller and more jeans-pocket-friendly than the original model.



    The new N-Gage QD is smaller and more intelligently designed than its predecessor. Plus, inserting game cards is a snap.
    Overall, we found the N-Gage QD a stunning successor to the original. Nokia has certainly listened to users and made improvements in all the right places. Barring a few quibbles, this new gaming phone is poised to make a real name for itself in the portable gaming space, something the original model was largely unable to do.

    Calling and Multimedia
    Gaming is the heart and soul of the N-Gage QD, but don't forget, it's also a powerful phone with the latest mobile Web, e-mail and messaging features. While we liked the ability to use it as a conventional handset, Bluetooth is built in, so going hands-free is easy with a Bluetooth-enabled headset. If you're not Bluetooth-inclined, there's also a jack for a wired headset. Like ringtones? You can get creative with polyphonic sounds that get you noticed in a crowd.



    The N-Gage QD packs plenty of portable graphics firepower.
    If you can receive GPRS data via AT&T's mMode service, you can browse the wireless Web using the built-in browser. We found these features tricky to set up and the Nokia interface for these functions somewhat confusing, but once we got things going, we enjoyed downloading some game tips and tricks from n-gage.com. The unit also serves as a wireless e-mail and messaging client with support for all the latest protocols (MMS, SMS, IMAP4, POP3, SMTP, and MIME2). We especially liked the Java-based expandability of the phone; with a data connection it's fun to download new Java-based games and new game levels. You can also download productivity apps like calendars and planners.

    With this iteration of the N-Gage, Nokia decided to drop the FM radio and MP3 player functions from the device. We think these would have been nice to retain, but Nokia was intent on making the N-Gage QD more exclusively focused on gaming. Nokia has retained multiplayer gaming via Bluetooth so you can still go head-to-head with up to four players via a wireless connection.

    Gaming
    Okay, the meat and potatoes. The Nokia N-Gage QD didn't disappoint when it came to gaming performance on a handheld device. The redesigned controls are far more user-friendly than those on the classic N-Gage. Gone are the days of clumsily pushing the directional pad inward to make a selection; a separate selection button is now available. The newly placed slot for games and memory expansion cards is one of the biggest improvements as users no longer have to remove the battery and cover to pop in a new game. The card slot is now easily accessible on the outside edge of the unit and is protected by a rubber cover.

    Our test model came with Ashen, a three-dimensional first-person shooter set in a macabre, supernatural world. Creepy-crawly things were coming at us from all directions and we found ourselves pretty immersed in the game--quite amazing, given that the screen is a little smaller than a business card. Graphics were impressive, too, for such a small device that offers robust battery life (Nokia claims 10 hours of play time on a single charge). Lovers of online multiplayer gaming will like Nokia's N-Gage Arena, which allows gamers to come together on the wireless Internet to compete and cooperate in a variety of online games.

    We had some reservations about the number of currently available games for the N-Gage. Many are forthcoming, however, and Nokia has obviously made a serious commitment to improving the platform. The N-Gage QD is a clear and positive sign of what's to come. --Joshua Gunn

    1-0 out of 5 stars No redeeming value
    This is the worst phone ever made! It does nothing well. The reception is awful and it drops calls frequently, the fit and finish is poor (the screen fills with dust obscuring the low rez screen), it only displays 256 colors making it useless for pictures, bluetooth works intermittently, buttons are too small and press themselves too easily in pockets (even with key lock on), joystick broke with light use...

    Shall I go on?

    Do yourself a favor, avoid all Sony Ericsson products. If this phone is any indication of their commitment to product quality, they need to get out of the business.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Nice Features but Not Durable-Poor Reception
    I bought the T68i for its advanced features and bluetooth compatibility. I was able to synchronize the phone with my ACT! database and found the phonebook and calendar functions of the phone quite good.

    Bluetooth performance was spotty. I needed to re-establish the bluetooth link with headset quite frequently. Sometimes this worked without a hitch other times it took several tries.

    Reception on the phone was spotty in some areas where other ATT Next Generation phones had good reception...don't know why this was.

    My biggest complaint about this phone was its durability. Through normal wear and tear it just didn't measure up. The earpiece volume button popped off just a couple of months after I got the phone. This was a real problem since there was no other way to easily adjust earpiece volume.

    I think ATT had a lot of problems with these phones since they offered free replacements with another model (unfortunately that model did not have bluetooth or many of the other features).

    2-0 out of 5 stars After 14 months of use...
    After 14 months of use Ill talk about this phone that I still own (and which Im hoping to get rid of once $370 falls out of the sky so I can get the Motorola V600). The size is great because Im a tiny phone person. The color screen is even fairly nice although it's a bit pixely. I like the whole digital phone thing as a screen saver.

    But the cons kill me. Ive had two of these phones. First off that little side volume button didn't break off but it no longer works and that happened on both phones. The first phone it just kinda wiggled up and down. It does what it is supposed to do on this phone but it just refuses to work. It worked for about a week and just stopped. When I first had this phone, I had some huge roaming bills cuz it would just randomly jump into cingular. I still get charged for text message roaming sometimes...don't ask me how. Keeping numbers on the SIM card is a hassle because you can't do categories with this phone for the SIM. It has to be MOM Cell, MOM Home, MOM Work etc. whereas if you store them on the phone you can just put MOM and then enter her work, cell, home, email etc. in the different slots. My first phone threw a hissy fit and had a memory malfunction. One day it just decided that it was going to erase 3/4 of my numbers. Basically my phone booked looked like Alan space space space space Cindy space space space space space space Tammy etc. You had no access to the deleted numbers nor could you recover them and a bonehead AT&T operator told me to do memory reset and i lost ALL of my numbers after that. This phone is also prone to shutting itself off within pockets are purses even if the key lock is on. It has the voice dial but it would help if the voice dial rerecognized my voice. i set it up but hardly use it. The ringtones suck and if you're a person who likes to play games (which I don't) those stink too. This phone is a little old and outdated so i say buy something current and more costly and don't waste your $150.

    1-0 out of 5 stars The T68i is a terrible phone
    I remember when this phone came out. I had to have it. I thought it was the coolest looking phone I had ever seen. After payeing somewhere around $400.00 to get it, I quickly learned of it's poor qualities. First off, the volume control fell off. Read the other reviews, it is a known flaw that is bound to happen. Secondly, the phone is SLOW! When you turn it on it takes about 3 or 4 minutes before you can use it. Storage for pictures is really low and the image quality is crap. The wireless bluetooth works great but I can get that from other phones. The size is nice. I read here that someone sync it up with thier computer so they can use it as a modem??? WOW they are good I have been trying to do that for the past 3 years. I hear they K700 is comming out and it looks like a good phone to replace the T68i. But then I have to remember when the T68i came out and think to myself, "do I really want another headache?"

    2-0 out of 5 stars The worst phone I've ever had
    One advise - Don't buy it! This is the 3rd time I had to take advantage of the warranty and it takes forever to receive it from Sony. Problems: The volume button on the side fell, the reception is just awful and it's really slow. This happened with all the replacements I got. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    Compatible with Cingular service, the Nokia N-Gage QD is a GSM phone and handheld gaming console rolled into one. The N-Gage QD features Bluetooth wireless connectivity, a hot-swap MMC-card slot for memory expansion and games, and a 36,600-pixel screen. Like all the latest Nokia phones, the N-Gage QD runs on a variant of the Symbian OS, which allows fast multitasking between game applications, phone calls, messaging and other functions. Users of the original will be delighted to know that the new N-Gage QD operates as a phone without the need for a headset; hold it to your ear and talk all you want. It's also smaller and more jeans-pocket-friendly than the original model.



    The new N-Gage QD is smaller and more intelligently designed than its predecessor. Plus, inserting game cards is a snap.
    Overall, we found the N-Gage QD a stunning successor to the original. Nokia has certainly listened to users and made improvements in all the right places. Barring a few quibbles, this new gaming phone is poised to make a real name for itself in the portable gaming space, something the original model was largely unable to do.

    Calling and Multimedia
    Gaming is the heart and soul of the N-Gage QD, but don't forget, it's also a powerful phone with the latest mobile Web, e-mail and messaging features. While we liked the ability to use it as a conventional handset, Bluetooth is built in, so going hands-free is easy with a Bluetooth-enabled headset. If you're not Bluetooth-inclined, there's also a jack for a wired headset. Like ringtones? You can get creative with polyphonic sounds that get you noticed in a crowd.



    The N-Gage QD packs plenty of portable graphics firepower.
    If you have GSM or GPRS data service, you can browse the wireless Web using the built-in browser. We found these features tricky to set up and the Nokia interface for these functions somewhat confusing, but once we got things going, we enjoyed downloading some game tips and tricks from n-gage.com. The unit also serves as a wireless e-mail and messaging client with support for all the latest protocols (MMS, SMS, IMAP4, POP3, SMTP, and MIME2). We especially liked the Java-based expandability of the phone; with a data connection it’s fun to download new Java-based games and new game levels. You can also download productivity apps like calendars and planners.

    With this iteration of the N-Gage, Nokia decided to drop the FM radio and MP3 player functions from the device. We think these would have been nice to retain, but Nokia was intent on making the N-Gage QD more exclusively focused on gaming. Nokia has retained multiplayer gaming via Bluetooth, so you can still go head-to-head with up to four players via a wireless connection.

    Gaming
    Okay, the meat and potatoes. The Nokia N-Gage QD didn’t disappoint when it came to gaming performance on a handheld device. The redesigned controls are far more user-friendly than thosn of the classic N-Gage. Gone are the days of clumsily pushing the directional pad inward to make a selection; a separate selection button is now available. The newly placed slot for games and memory expansion cards is one of the biggest improvements, as users no longer have to remove the battery and cover to pop in a new game. The card slot is now easily accessible on the outside edge of the unit and is protected by a rubber cover.

    Our test model came with Ashen, a three-dimensional first-person shooter set in a macabre, supernatural world. Creepy-crawly things were coming at us from all directions and we found ourselves pretty immersed in the game--quite amazing, given that the screen is a little smaller than a business card. Graphics were impressive, too, for such a small device that offers robust battery life (Nokia claims 10 hours of play time on a single charge).

    We had some reservations about the number of currently available games for the N-Gage. Many are forthcoming, however, and Nokia has obviously made a serious commitment to improving the platform. The N-Gage QD is a clear and positive sign of what’s to come. --Joshua Gunn

    1-0 out of 5 stars Amazon is great.. phone is great, just say away from AT&T
    WARNING: AT&T representatives ("Dawn: R361" and "Max: N360") themselves said during my troubleshooting (as detailed below) that I should NOT have bought through Amazon, and that they have received a barrage of complaints from Amazon buyers! I still really like Amazon, but they're integration with AT&T is non existent. People should not have to wait 2-3 days for service after they receive the phone. Buy the same phone on Amazon, but a different carrier.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Nothing special
    In my opinion the phone sucks. The camera is pretty decent quality not the best i might add, the menus are annoying and make every action you try and perform a prolonged task, and the voice dialing is non existant. The video recorder is definatly not worth the space on the phone because it is a puny 10 seconds long and has incredibly bad graphics to the point the thing your video taping is non recognizable. The signal is ok in most places with the gsm from at&t (for once) but everything else isn't worth the money. the only time this phone is worth it is from a one day sale off the at&t website.......hoped this help! ...

    20. RIM BlackBerry 7100t Phone (T-Mobile)

    Amazon.com Product Description

    The BlackBerry 7100t is the first of its kind-- a fully-featured mobile phone that delivers the power of BlackBerry e-mail. This is one sweet little phone, loaded with all of the cool features you want, like integrated Bluetooth connectivity, speakerphone, and downloadable ringtones. Plus, surf the Web the way it was meant to be surfed with an ultra-large, high-resolution color screen.

    Design
    Design-wise, the 7100t is a departure from the form factor of previous BlackBerry models. This BlackBerry is far more phone-like, and RIM's engineers have managed to fit a QWERTY keyboard onto the handset's slim frame. Each button on the keypad shares two letters and the unit automatically determines which letter is the intended one based on what it predicts you are trying to spell. This unique predictive text technology, known as SureType, enables the 7100t's diminutive size. SureType also learns the words you use most often, further enhancing your typing speed.

    The 7100t sports a large 240 x 260 pixels screen with 65,000 colors-- plenty of real estate to view your emails, web browser content, messaging sessions and attachments. The venerable BlackBerry jog dial is located on the right side of the unit for quick scrolling through menus and emails. A speakerphone is housed in the top portion of the rear of the handset, just above the removable battery door. There's also a standard 2.5mm headset jack that can be used with the included headset.

    Calling Features
    All the calling capabilities folks have come to expect in a wireless phone are present in the 7100t. As mentioned, the unit's speakerphone makes it easy to use the device handsfree, or if you prefer, use a wireless headset via the 7100t's built-in Bluetooth capability. A vibrating alert, speed dial, and a contacts list/address book that is limited only by the unit's 32 MB of internal memory, are also included. Any of the phone's 32 included polyphonic ringtones can be used to create caller-specific ringers so you can know who's calling without having to look at the handset. More ringtones are available from T-Mobile's t-zones mobile web service.

    Messaging, Internet and Tools
    While the 7100t is a different kind of BlackBerry, it's still delivers the legendary BlackBerry email experience. With T-Mobile's BlackBerry service plans, you can receive emails instantaneously from up to 10 email accounts (personal and enterprise). 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 instantaneously with your desktop. Make meeting requests, invite new attendees and more, all on your 7100t. Users without Enterprise Server support can manually sync with their desktop calendars and contacts via Bluetooth or USB using the included BlackBerry Desktop software.

    Use the 7100t'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. Instant messaging and wireless messaging are also built into the 7100t. The unit supports AOL, Yahoo and ICQ instant messaging, as well as SMS text messaging. MMS messages can be received and forwarded.

    The 7100t ships with a number of tools, including a calculator with a unit converter and a to-do list. The unit supports Java application and game downloads (available via the t-zones service). One game, BrickBreaker, is included.

    Vital Statistics
    The RIM BlackBerry 7100t weighs 4.30 ounces and measures 4.70 x 2.30 x 0.70 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 4.5 hours of digital talk time, and up to 240 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the 800/900/1800/1900 GSM/GPRS frequencies. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.
