The delivery was entirely satisfactory :

The mobile phone (logical, right?)
1 power cable
1 Battery
1 Driver CD
1 USB cable
1 pair of headphones
1 manual in several languages

and insert a SIM card. Before advantage is quite possible that the phone is not branded by any provider. In addition, here is especially on the elegant shape and appearance of the phone. It looks really classy.

Then, after switching, I’m immediately struck by the large, colorful display. Even I can see everything slow worm without reading glasses. A great plus!

Who knows Nokia phones, which is also safe with the cope in the most important points immediately.
Since I like the built-in ring tones any cell phone, I throw the first CD into the computer. The included CD is compatible with Windows 98SE, Windows MD, Windows 200 and Windows XP.

Installation is fast and simple one and after it is fully completed, I close the phone with the cable to the PC first copy my music to your mobile. For I can use my music not only as a ringtone. The mobile phone has an integrated music player so I can hear my music through headphones ever.

After I first, as I said, the music was loaded, I personalize the phone. This means that I set for vip profiles, so that I can only call certain persons of whom I allow it. All others, choose this number receive a busy signal and friendly in an emergency, even the mailbox.

As with all new phones I can write or receive mms, sms and emails and. Well, I think here that I can read on the display up to 6 lines of written text and even clearly without glasses!

The contacts I can assign photos and personal data such as private, duty telephone number and addresses, emails and birthdays Adis.

Under Protocol I see the Registry to be the case and missed calls. This log can be deleted at any time.
In Office you can setup in fact a small office. Here, all documents are written and stored and printed on an HP printer too. Even tables can be created and edited.

In the Organizer, I find data such as calendar, notes, calculator, converter and also the voice mailbox.
Next, I find the sub-item Clock. The Clock I can adjust to time zones. She introduces herself and then automatically, when I travel to another time zone.

Connections: Here we find the usual connections like Bluetooth and infrared. But access to the Internet or the PC. Even here, a connection to the printer to be created by infrared.

The mobile phone contains a w-lan. This means that I can access via cell phone on our own computer company, by then I configure the phone. How to do this in detail, is dependent on the manufacturer and is very well explained in the manual.

In system I find information on the memory, data transfer and also edits the settings and profiles can be made here.
Internet, the ever expensive proposition, but to which some of the phone can not do without. I have been tested only once briefly and I can say that it is a breeze on the net and the sides to build up as rapidly.
Another point is the media. Here we found the gallery for photos, video clips etc. as the real player, the music player and Internet services.

Finally, we find three more points that lead us to the internet and which I purposely let the fingers.
Well here is that you can set shortcuts, and this gets shown on the display. Thus, you can reach them faster, by using the arrow goes there.

Shortcuts are also possible. 1 is basically fixed to the mailbox that can be individually 2 to 9
Although the Nokia site indicates games that are not mentioned in my phone. I think this is the manufacturer dependent. For the branded mobile phones often contain demo games to buy the customers love it.
The mobile phone has the Push-To-Talk feature. This has the advantage that enormous costs can be saved if the other person also has this function in the cell phone. Because then work the phones like walkie-talkies.
Otherwise, the reception quality was always excellent and the sound as well, without interfering by noise.
The battery lasts for ages. I’m used to Nokia in this regard, some good, but this phone excels in battery run time at all. I have tried all the functions of the phone, it can be day and night and still considers it a good 9 days before I charge it needs. It is important here is that before the first use, the battery is charged only once and it completely the first time should also be drained completely before it is loaded. Only such a long life of the battery is relatively secure.

My conclusion

This phone comes with Nokia under the name Business phone. I must say, this name is justified. You can really build his own small office and access it via wireless or infrared to printer and PC.

But I see also a minus point, the understanding may not all: This phone has no camera, which I miss sorely. For just as a multi-car driver I like to have a camera in the event of cases there. Because of accidents, one should always be able to take photos.

Also, I think it might belong to a business’s mobile phone to, for important documents are also often recorded photographically, not to have to transfer everything.

But this is really the only downside of the phone. I was thinking back and forth whether I should deduct a point because of the missing camera. Last but I’ve decided, make a complete recommendation because it really is unbeatable from the cannon Funct.

Pro : you can actually set up an office in it: all the important functions, was not branded
Cons : Camera does not
