Themes

There are five preinstalled themes on Nokia N82, all of which are named Nseries. The rest is left to the imagination of the user, as you can download as many other themes as you wish. Before doing that create sure that you check out the pre-bundled ones as we personally happened to find them quite nice.

Phonebook

The phonebook of Nokia N82 is a accurate Symbian goodie. It is simply great. There is storage place for a virtually unlimited number of contacts and fields, with all the available memory potentially usable for contacts. Good luck trying to fill that up. Contacts can be freely ordered by first or last name and can naturally be searched by gradual typing of any of their names.

Editing a contact offers an enormous variety of preset fields and you can replicate each of them as many times as you like. You can also create recent fields if you happen to be able to think of one. We personally find it difficult to think of something Nokia has missed here. Personal ringtones and video are also available for assigning. If you prefer you may group your contacts and give a specific ringtone to each group.

The Call log application, although not exactly a part of the phonebook, is also one of Nokia N82's strengths. It can hrecent up to 20 call records in each of the tabs for outgoing, received and missed calls. These are all accessed with the Call key from the stand-by menu. If you enter the Log application from the main menu, you'll see a detailed list of all your network communications for the past 30 days. These include messages, calls and data transfers. The period can be shortened in order to save some space but you are quite unlikely to do that, as even with a huge number of calls the log only takes a few miserly kilobytes of memory space.

Messaging

If you are all about texting, Nokia N82 might not be the perfect device for you. With a keypad like this typing doesn't come as nice and easy as we would have wished. However, in terms of software the phone is performing a whole lot better.

There are four different message editors - one for each type of supported messages: SMS, MMS, audio message and e-mail. The SMS editor is the well know intuitive application for all Symbian S60 smartphones. It has a counter of the characters left to the limit of 160. There is also an indicator in brackets showing the number of separate parts the message will be divided into for sending.




The Message editor is a remarkable application indeed

It goes without saying that a delivery report can be activated. The reports pop up on the standby classy screen when the keypad is unlocked, and are subsequently saved in a separate folder in the messaging sub-menu. When you are exiting the message editor without having sent the message, the editor prompts saving it to the Drafts folder or discarding it.
