Review: Sony Ericsson Z750
As with every phone on earth, hitting the green send key from the home screen brings up a list of your recent calls. What bugs me about this is, the left soft key, which is directly above the send key, does exactly the same thing, because it is set to "Calls". Why you'd have two buttons that are separated by 5mm perform the exact same function is beyond me.
All calls are lumped into the first tab, but the other tabs will show you dialed calls, missed called and answered calls. When viewing call listings, you can hit the left soft key to pull up an options menu. There's nothing surprising in this menu. The same options come up when you dial a number directly on the keypad.

The contacts application is fairly robust and easy to figure out. The contacts menu itself has a bunch of different options, including some things you'd expect to see in a "my account" folder somewhere, such as check bill balance, view my minutes, and pay my bill.
Creating a new contact is the second option, and opening it up brings you to another tabbed menu. The tabs separate adding in numbers, email/web addresses, pictures/ringtones, addresses and notes.
Once you have your contacts added, search is performed by spelling out contact names, not dialing their numbers. The contact application will auto-sort as you type, making it quick to find contacts.
With a contact highlighted, the left soft key brings up the extensive options menu (message, edit, send, etc).
