Menus Calls / Contacts Messaging  

The messaging department is found in the TM506's main menu. The main messaging menu shows you a quick overview of your different inboxes, including texts, IMs, emails and voice mails.

The first selection takes you to the message composition screen. The first thing it has you do is fill out the text. Once done typing, there is an icon menu bar at the bottom of the screen. This is where you can choose to add pictures, animations, videos, music, open the camera or add pre-recorded sounds. The icons were more fun to interact with than a regular menu.

T-Mobile's mobile email application is not in the messaging department, but a separate area reserved for Email and IM. Going into the menu, it lets you choose from a list of 13 email service providers, such as Gmail, .Mac, and even SBC and Verizon email accounts. But that's all you get, you can't add your own PWO3/IMAP accounts. As with other Sony Ericsson phones, 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 in an instant. This way you don't have to sign in to retrieve your email.
