Review: Sony Ericsson W760

Form Basics Extras Wrap-up Comments  12  

Menus Calls/Contacts Messaging  

While there isn't a font size control, dialed numbers are displayed in a sans serif font about a quarter of an inch tall arrayed on a white background – on other words, really easy to see what numbers you hit.

As you tap out the number, corresponding contact names are displayed. You can simply choose the name to call without completing the number.

Instead of one long form to create a new contact, the W760 breaks up the data into five short tabs: name and number; email and Web address; picture, ringtone, message alert and voice command; business and home snail mail addresses; and, miscellaneous info and birthday.

As with all lists in the W760, contact names are in a clean white font on a black background. As you scroll the list, selected names change into a bright orange and the phone number or email address appears below the name. You can scroll right to cycle through which phone number or email address you need.

When viewing a contact, you get the first line of each bit of information (i.e. the first line of an address) and an "open" option to see the complete information. If you're looking for someone at the end of the alphabet, you can scroll up from the As at the top of the alphabetical list and the W760 rolls around to the Zs at the bottom of the list.

You can then press Send to call or the "select" key to open the contact.
