Review: Moto RAZR
There is a button on the RAZR's keypad devoted to the messaging client; press it and the messaging application opens up. The first item in the menu is create message, which will then prompt you to choose from SMS, MMS, or email. There is no way to get directly to this create message menu without opening the messaging application first.
Composing a message, whether text, MMS or email is fairly simple and works exactly as expected - first you compose a message, then address it. Motorola does not provide any addressing shortcuts such as recently used numbers, and it is only possible to search through contacts by the first letter of their name.
The email client in the messaging application supports a single POP3 or IMAP account. It can be configured to only download new messages, download X days' worth of messages or limit the number to a specific memory size. It supports a number of multimedia attachments, each type can be authorized for automatic download in the mail application's preferences. The mail client can also log on and check mail automatically at preset intervals.
