Review: HTC Freestyle
Here's where the Freestyle starts to betray its non-smartphone roots. The calling and contact applications are drastically simpler and less featuresome than any smartphone would be.
The software dialer works the same as any other. Once you start typing numbers and/or names into the keypad, the phone app will start to search your contact list for those that match. You have to use the menu key to find access to recent call history, favorites, and so on. In-call options include turning on the speakerphone, muting the microphone, and adding another line, etc.

The Freestyle doesn't sync with Google, Yahoo, or other online accounts. Users of AT&T's contact back-up services will be able to port their contacts over, but otherwise, new contacts have to be added manually, one at a time . Each contact can hold at least four different phone numbers, two email addresses, a physical street address, as well as notes, birthdays, web sites and ring tones. There are no nifty press-and-hold moves or other fancy gestures to interact with the contacts. If you want to message someone, you have to open the contact card up and then select that option. Ditto for making phone calls.
