Menus Calls/Contacts Messaging  

Krave includes POP3 and IMAP email with pre-configurations for Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail, AOL, AIM and Verizon.net (no pre-configurations for Gmail), as well as mobile POP3 email options for Yahoo! Mail, Windows Live, Gmail and AOL mail that let your friends check their email without creating a permanent account on the phone. There are no push email capabilities.

Loading my AOL and dot Mac IMAP accounts required only a user name and a password. Inboxes for both accounts filled within a couple of minutes with no additional requests for security information, as is often the case with other phones.

Also included are AIM, Windows Live and Yahoo! Messenger instant messaging services, and plain picture and text messaging. One of Krave's cooler tricks is you can finger swipe sideways to move from one text message or instant message to the next. Chat also is enabled, but no specific services are included.

As when inputting information into contact list fields, you have to rotate the Krave to horizontal to get the QWERTY keypad. When typing message text, you still don't get automatic first letter caps, no period after a double tap of the space bar, and after a cap first letter no auto lowercase for subsequent letters. I can't tell you how often I wrote two or three words in all caps before I realized I'd forgotten to tap the Shift key after the first letter of a sentence.
