Talking to me?

The default view of the calls log in V8 is the all calls view. Dialed, missed and answered calls however can be set to appear separately as well. Multiple calls to or from one and the same number are stored independently, instead of keeping the most recent one only. Call timers and a data counter are available too, with submenus offering detailed information.




Call Log and data counter

Thanks to its Linux platform, RAZR2 V8 is yet another Motorola to offer a very handy feature called Talking Phone. An aid for the vision-impaired or a boost to handsfree operation, Talking Phone provides voice assistance throughout the phone interface. Users can enable it for various aspects of handling the phone, including caller ID, menu, contact list, digits, etc. There are even email and text message readouts. Those who love fooling around should be warned that there's no censorship and the application will read out just anything. Obscenities or particularly naughty texts could create them wish some things went without saying on the RAZR2 V8.

While we're at it, Talking Phone is probably the most notable feature in the messaging department. Otherwise, the RAZR2 V8 has pretty much standard SMS and MMS functionality. When writing a text message, a character counter is available. It also indicates the number of separate messages to be sent should the 160-character limit be exceeded. Of course, the iTap editor is there too. We do like it better than T9, for its superior user-friendliness and handling of recent vocabulary entries.
