Review: Motorola W755

Considering the W755 is an inexpensive phone, it's not surprising its email options are limited to the popular POP3 services – MSN Hotmail, AOL, Yahoo! Mail and Verizon.net. Just tap in your screen name (which the phone can remember) and your password to get your email. The problem is, the screen name and password forms force a capital letter for the first character of each, which means you can't enter case-sensitive names or passwords. As a result, I could not get my AOL mail.

The W755 also offers mobile IM, along with picture (even pictures taken at the W755's highest resolution) and video messaging. The "To" page has four numbered addressee boxes, which is initially confusing since it implies you can only input four adresses. But you can "add" an additional six numbers, for a total of 10 recipients. For text messages there are a raft of handy options. You can easily add graphics and/or sounds, insta-compose your message with "quick text" – the W755 includes 15 pre-composed short messages such as "Wanna meet," "On my way" and "Thanks." You also get handy message priority and you can set a validity period (the time frame in which a text message is stored on a carrier's server if the recipient is offline).

For picture messaging, you can add slides. You can compose your MMS or video message from the Message section first, or find the picture or video in the Media Center My Pictures or My Video folders and compose your message and send your files from these Options menus. Other phones don't always enable message composition options from both the Message menu and the photo/video gallery sections.
