The number of mobile phones available, and their capabilities, continues to grow. With so many options to choose from, you might find yourself wondering what cellphone will best fit you. Probably the best way to decide on cell phones is to determine what kind of a phone user you are and what types of features you like to use or might use in the future. Here is a guide to choosing a cell phone according to your user type.
Cell Phones by User:
PDA users: Users of PDA cell phones tend to use their phones to organize appointments, contacts and even do work away from the office. These cell phones typically include advanced Internet access and messaging options as well. If you're interested in transferring your day planner into electronic form, PDA cell phones may be for you.
Text and messaging users: Most cell phones can send and receive texts and instant messages, but users who are serious about messaging may want a full QWERTY keyboard to make typing easier. Messaging phones tend to have other advanced controls for organizing and sending text, picture and video messages.
Voice only users: Some users don't want all the bells and whistles. They just want a convenient, compact cell phone with good sound quality and long battery life. You can save lots of money every month by not having extras, such as texting or data plans. But make sure your cell phone is text capable. You never know when you might catch the bug!
Music and video phone users: Music phones usually include a lot of memory to hold several hours of music and video. If you like to listen to music with your phone, find one with an easy user-interface and long battery life. Some decent headphones will complete your portable listening experience.
Smartphone users: Available features vary between smartphones, but these phones basically act like portable computers. You can download programs, games, music and more to your cell phone over your wireless network and even connect to Wi-Fi hotspots. A large touch screen gives you great control to move between programs as well. Your smartphone may require a data plan to download apps and access the Web, though.
this is not really a problem but understanding should be clear: Multimedia Messaging Service(MMS)
MMS is a descendant of SMS (Short Messaging Service). MMS extends text messaging to include longer text, graphics, photos, audio clips, video clips, or any combination of the above, within certain size limits.
MMS is frequently used to send photos and videos from camera phones to other MMS phones or email accounts. Most camera phones have MMS, but many non-camera phones have it as well. if it has a photo, video or audio it will automatically be categorize as MMS
While SMS stands for short message service. SMS is also often referred to as texting, sending text messages or text messaging. The service allows for short text messages to be sent from one cell phone to another cell phone or from the Web to another cell phone. purely text:

this phone doesnt carry t9. one way to use the predictive text dictionary (ptd) on this phone, is to hit that "0" sign with the circle shaped arrow on the keyboard after typing in a series of letters..
This is a firmware problem. Either the firmware needs to be updated, but if you have warranty, take it back and they'll just throw it away and give you a new one. You may be lucky enough to find update software downloads on the web.
Unfortunately this model/firmware doesnt have this option. If you look at the sciphone forum (google this) you will find answers as to determine if your phone is A) a genuine sciphone, and B) how to order the appropriate cables and software for flashing the latest firmware.
