Review: Kyocera Jet for Amp'd

Form Basics Extras Video Wrap-up Comments  9  

Menus Calls / Contacts Messaging  

The contact format in the Jet is straightforward and simple. Each contact has support for six different phone numbers, two email addresses, two street addresses, two URLs, and a note. The contact system also features a secret number ability, which will mask the digits of any phone number when either browsing the address book or dialing a call. Sadly though, the secret is out when addressing an SMS or MMS message. At that point the phone number is displayed normally.

Voice dialing commands are trained by speaking your chosen command up to three times in a row, and then applied to individual phone numbers within a contact. Once this training was completed, pressing the call button from the main menu gave us the choice of speaking a voice command, or pressing the call button a second time to show the list of recent calls.

The contact listing on the Jet displays the contact name, with an icon for home, mobile, etc. to the right. Scrolling to a particular contact and then pressing left or right on the D-pad cycles through the icons similar to the list view on most Motorola phones. This let us quickly choose which number we wanted to dial. The Jet also features a fast find function, which will find a desired contact as you type their name from the home screen. This is an excellent way to find contacts from a large list, and it is something we've only seen previously on Windows Mobile phones.
