Menus Calls/Contacts Messaging  

All your messaging services are in the messaging menu. SMS, IM, email, it's all here. The first choice is to start a new SMS. Open it up, tap anywhere on the screen and the 12-key keypad pops up. Rotate the phone sideways and the full software QWERTY keyboard will appear on the screen for creating messages.

The software QWERTY works okay. It employs software prediction and begins predicting words as soon as you type, but you can turn it off if you want to. You can also jump back and forth to the 12-key or a writing recognition program that lets you write the the letters you want. It works pretty well, but I found it to be fastest using the full software QWERTY with the software prediction on.

Once you are done composing, there are four software buttons that let you insert an image, sound clip, video, or templates. You can use the "More" button in the bottom right corner to do the same thing. There are eleven messaging templates and you can choose to add your own if you wish.

The email application has tons of POP3 presets already loaded in. Pick the one you use, type in your username and password, and you're all set. The email client behaves as you would expect. You can choose to remain signed in and receive notifications when emails arrive.

The story for instant messaging is pretty much the same. AIM, ICQ, Windows Live and Yahoo are on board. You can set the software up so that it signs you in automatically, turn sound notifications on or off, and set up your favorite buddies.
