Review: Nokia 3220

Calls

Everything works exactly as expected to for calling: pressing the send key takes you to the dialed numbers section of the call log, holding down the 1 key speed dials voice mail, and so on. Once a call has begun the right softkey turns speakerphone on and off, while the left softkey lists other options such as mute, hold, new call, etc.

Contacts

Nokia uses both the SIM card and the phone memory to store contacts. If a contact is stored on the SIM, it is limited to one number per name. If it is stored in the phone memory, each contact can hold multiple numbers, email addresses, street addresses and notes. Any contact can be assigned a voice tag or a speed dial shortcut, but only contacts stored in phone memory can be assigned a photo for caller ID. Voice dialing must be trained for each entry. Selecting a photo for caller ID requires an extra trip to the options menu to select "Save to contacts," but otherwise is straightforward. It is also impossible to create a new contact without assigning a phone number of some sort. So in order to create a contact to send pictures to via email (if you are moblogging, for instance) you must create a contact, enter a fake phone number, add an email detail, then go back and delete the phone number.
