Picture Mail

I found the MM-7400 messaging application excellent and very easy to use. There are two separate mail boxes – one for Text and the other for Picture messages. Instant messaging is also available but is limited to only AOL, MSN and Yahoo (my favorite one – ICQ is missing).

This menu gives access to auxiliary functions like Voice services, alarms and calendar. Starting with Voice services, two options are available: voice memo for recording/replaying short reminders of around 20 seconds each. The total time available for voice memo is only 75 seconds which is not enough. I use this feature a lot and expect at least 10 minutes of recording time. On the other hand, the phone allows you to speed-up or slow-down the recording when it is replayed. This is very useful if you have several short recording and you are not sure which one you need.
The other feature that I just fell in love with is the call screening. Let me elaborate on how it works: first you have to turn it on. After that, if let say your Ex-wife calls, a short message is playing simply saying something like “Please leave a message”. The unsuspected Ex-wife fells for it of course, and starts butchering you about the child-support being late etc. What she doesn't now is that you are actually listening to her and of course after you know why she is calling you will not pick up. If you want, you can of course pick you and interrupt her in the middle of her tirade, but I doubt it you will. If you want you can save your own announcement instead of the standard “leave your message”. Another option is the Auto Pick-up time after which the phone will automatically pick-up. So what happens if you do not pick up the phone? Well, the lovely message from your Ex-wife is saved as a voice note which you can reply later! Brilliant!

Alarms

The calendar is pretty standard and allows you to save events, alarms or to-do notes. Up to 100 events, 15 alarms and 20 notes can be kept at the same time. The calendar interface is standard and nothing special. The alarm clock supports up to 5 independent alarms. Each alarm can be set to repeat daily, weekly, or just on a specific day of the week.

Calculator is very simply with only + - * /. The world clock shows you the time in the different cities around the world. Unfortunately there is no search option, so you have to scroll like crazy until you find the one that interests you. Overall verdict on the world clock – useless.

The phone supports limited PC synchronization - only Ringer and Images can be transffered back and forth.
