The 3220 fits in the hand, and in the pocket very well. The wave messaging fun cover adds a bit of thickness to the phone, but it is still small enough to fit even in tight pants pockets, albeit with some bulging. With the standard cover, the 3220 is small enough to go unnoticed in all but the tightest of pockets. For such a plastic looking phone, the 3220 has a surprisingly solid heft.Keypad
Although each key actually is 2 keys in a rocker-style configuration, they are well designed and large enough that even those with large hands (like my construction worker roommate) have no trouble hitting the right keys, which was a pleasant surprise. There is a distinct valley between the two joined keys and a fairly distinct space between each of the key units. Because the D-Pad and navigation keys have slightly different edges than the numerical keypad, it is also easy to feel out the different types of keys as well. There is a short learning curve to press in on the D-Pad for select, however it is not significant. The only other key on the phone is the power key, which doubles as a shortcut to switch profiles with a quick press, as it does on all Nokia phones.
