Menus Calls/Contacts Messaging  

Crafting little limericks or epic emails is mostly a breeze with the enV2.

First, the front display. You can send text messages to one recipient at a time with the phone closed. That's it. You can also view your inbox. No MMS, no composing to multiple people. No emails. For those that need to check messages and only have one hand, this seriously cramps down on usability. You have to open the phone up to check email.

With the phone open, you can send any sort of message, be it a SMS, MMS, email, or IM. On the home screen, the left soft key opens the messaging application and brings you to the messaging menu. The SMS/MMS application is the same that we've seen before. The first thing you need to do is fill out the "to" field. You can either type in the number directly on the dial pad, or choose to add addressees from your contacts, recent calls or groups. Once you have the message addressed to whom you wish, you have to hit OK to move on to the next screen. If you want to compose a picture or video message, the software makes you insert the desired media during the composition process.

Emails can be set up two different ways. You can use Verizon's email service, or access your POP3 accounts via the Web browser. The included email application, which costs $5 extra per month unless you have subscribed to unlimited data, is easy enough to use for setting up and accessing POP3 accounts.

The IM application is exactly the same as on the Voyager and enV.
