Review: LG Incite
The Incite is a Windows Mobile phone. You know what that means: Its messaging features are robust. It'll take your company's Exchange-based email, as well as just about any POP3 or IMAP service you can think of. I had no trouble creating Yahoo, AOL, Windows Live and Gmail accounts. Enter a little bit of text and the phone takes care of the rest.
The Today screen can be set to show multiple alerts from all your messaging accounts, including email and SMS. Having sight of all your inboxes right on the home screen is handy. Each message type has its own set of inboxes, drafts, sent and outboxes so you can tell the status of all your messages at a glance. From the home screen, you can also navigate down to the one inbox that has a new message, say an MMS, and select it. This will take you directly to that inbox, allowing you to skip the general messaging center.
Tapping the envelope icon on the home screen will initiate a new text message and bring up the SureType QWERTY keypad for text input. The menu icon lets you add additional recipients, insert media and take care of all addressing needs.

I like that you can run spellcheck in any sort of message, though I am sure most will ignore that feature.
When composing messages, rotating the phone sideways will bring up the full QWERTY keyboard on the screen. The software QWERTY is nicely spaced and works well enough, but it takes up 90% of the screen's real estate, leaving just a sliver of screen space to see what it is that you're typing. This could have been designed a little bit better in my opinion.
