Review: Sony Ericsson Z750
The messaging department is found in the Z750a's main menu. The main messaging menu shows you a quick overview of your different inboxes, including texts, IMs, emails and voice mails.
The top-most selection takes you to the basic composition screen. The first thing it has you do is fill out the text. Feel free to go ahead and fill up the nice, big screen. Once done typing, there is an icon menu bar at the bottom of the screen. Scroll down and this is where you can turn that boring old SMS into a supercharged MMS. Add pictures, animations, videos, music, open the camera or add pre-recorded sounds. I really liked this menu. The icons are just more pleasant to interact with than boring old list menus.
Once you're done adding content, hit the left soft key to continue on or access some options, such as organizing the layout of the message, or add templates or signatures. If you choose to continue, here is where you finally get to choose the lucky recipient of your 160-character masterpiece. You can sort email address, phone number, or go straight to your address book and search there. Once you have the recipients selected, fire it away and you're all set. Oh, if you're totally anal about making sure they get the message and can't tell you later "I never got it!", you can set delivery reports to tell you if the message arrived or not.

AT&T's mobile email application is unchanged from what we've seen on other phones. It lets you jump into your Yahoo, AIM or Hotmail (sorry, I just ain't gonna call it Windows Live Mail). You can set up the email accounts to remember your password, negating the need to sign in all the time, and you can choose to send the email application to the background. This maintains the connection, and lets you scoop up email messages faster than if you opened the program fresh each time. It won't push email to you, but when you resume using the email application, all you need to do is perform a sync and new emails show up lickety-split.
The IM client supports AIM, Yahoo Messenger and Windows Messenger. You can manage accounts in all three, configure your message alerts, as well as save conversations.
In all, you get all the messaging features you'd expect from a mid-range phone.
