Review: Nokia 3220

Form Function - Basics Function - Extras Wrap-up  

Menus Calls / Contacts Messaging  

From the homescreen, tapping left on the D-Pad will bring up the new SMS dialog, which begins with the message composition window. This window will be populated with the previous text, so it must be cleared first unless you want to send the same message.

Once the form is empty, composing a message is quick, as the T9 is very fast. However unlike other manufacturers, Nokia does not populate the T9 dictionary with many of the SMS abbreviations, so they will have to be entered by hand at least once. Once the message is written, addressing it is simple whether you use a number or want to lookup a contact in the phone book.

Composing and sending a picture or video message is fairly easy. After taking a picture, you are given the option to send it or it can be done through the Messages or Gallery applications. Once you've attached a picture or video, and added any text or other multimedia to the message, sending the message to another phone is easy. Sending the message to an email address requires using the options menu instead of the Send key, which is a bit confusing. Other than sending MMS messages to an email address, there is no support for sending or receiving email.

Receiving and reading messages is simple, exactly as it should be.
