Review: LG enV
Each contact in the enV can store up to 4 phone numbers, 2 email addresses and a fax number. The contacts may be assigned their own ringtones and can be added to groups, such as coworkers or family. Pictures may also be added to the contacts for caller ID.
Calling features are straight forward on the enV. Most features work as expected when the phone is closed or opened. Opening the phone will answer a call as will hitting the send key. If you hit the options button during a call, you can choose to compose a message or even record the conversation. Almost all the menu features of the phone may be accessed during a call, with the exception of some network-dependent functions. The speakerphone can be accessed with a dedicated button on the inside of the phone, but doesn't automatically initiate when the phone is opened. Speakerphone cannot be accessed or used when the phone is closed, as it can be on many other phones.

When using a Bluetooth headset, closing the phone will not disconnect the call. The call can be ended by hitting the end key on the front or the inside of the phone.
