Review: Samsung Highnote
Highnote includes pre-installed settings for AIM, Windows Live and Yahoo! instant messaging that allows you to save conversations. There are also pre-configured settings for Gmail, AOL Mail, AIM Mail, Hotmail and Yahoo! Mail POP3 or IMAP accounts.
Signing into both the Gmail and AOL pre-installed accounts was as easy as entering my user or screen name and my password. Highnote doesn't make allowances for entering email addresses, however, which means you'll have to poke around the "1" key symbols page for "@" and "dot" and type out "com."
For "other" email services not pre-installed, you'll need to fill in SMTP and other account information, often not required on other POP3/IMAP enabled phones I've used.
