Review: Sony Ericsson TM506

Form Basics Extras Video Wrap Up Comments  6  

Menus Calls / Contacts Messaging  

Punching the green send key from the home screen of the TM506 brings up a list of your recent calls. All calls are piled into the first tab, but the other tabs will show you answered, dialed calls, and missed calls. When viewing call listings, you can hit the left soft key to pull up an options menu. Pressing up on the D-pad also opens the call list.


When you begin to type phone numbers into the TM506, it automatically begins to sort through recent calls. If you are re-dialing a recent number, you can often get through the first few digits, and then use the D-pad to select the full number and call it without finishing typing the remaining digits. If the number is in your contacts, it will show you the contact. Hitting down on the D-pad selects your contact. If you hit the send key, it will place a call to that contact, if you hit the center of the D-pad again, it will open the contact and let you do other things, such as send SMS messages.

The contacts application is fairly robust and easy to figure out. It can be opened by pressing the left soft key or by pressing down on the D-pad. It is pre-populated with several T-Mobile numbers, such as customer care. 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, 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 to let you contact them in whatever way you so desire.
