    Hi. I am overwhelmed by the various model of Nokia phone. Beside phone
    performance, size and battery life etc. which model has the best SMS
    features and ease of use? Talking about features, what are the various SMS
    features that useful nowaday? I am a bit out of touch and kinda lazy to find
    out from square one.

    And btw, what's the differences between SMS and MMS?

    Thanks.

    SMS people actually receive when you send it. With MMS you can
    add pictures, sounds and video to your message, but it's rather
    doubtful that your messages are actually received and displayed
    properly. And it's more expensive, of course

    If at all possible I'd get a phone that does regular e-mail. Then you
    can just send pictures or sounds or whatever as an attachment.

    SMS nearly all phones do well. Important here are:

    * Good keyboard for typing
    * T9 text recognition (way faster than the laborious multi-tapping of
    a key to get the desired character)
    * Ability to send/receive longer text messges. (But automatically
    appending the parts)
    * Some old motorola phones didn't show the name of the person sending
    you the message, just the number even though that number was in the
    contacts list. I would seriously hope for Motorola's sake that this
    has been addressed, but frankly I was so appalled by it that I will
    never buy one of their phones again.

    Less important but nice to have are:

    * Ability to add/update the senders phone number to your contacts list
    * Sending/receiving black and white crude graphics
    * Storing messages in your own folders
    * Use of templates
    * Ability to get receiving confirmation
    * Sending the same message to multiple recipients

    Any modern phone that has Tegic's T9 predictive text input would work.
    You'd probably prefer a traditional keypad in the format

    123
    456
    789
    *0#

    rather than some off-the-wall button configuration. Also the size of
    the buttons should probably be taken into consideration.

    On newer Nokia models when you press the * key to get symbols ([email protected]#$&*)
    etc. you can quickly navigate to the symbol by using the 2, 4, 6 or 8
    keys.
