The phonebook of Nokia E70 knows no limits as it uses the shared memory. You can add as much contacts as free memory you have. It offers an endless list of fields to assign for every contact. First and last name, job, home and work address, several different phone numbers, email addresses, web sites, etc.
You can order the phonebook list either by first or last name. Search in the phonebook is performed by gradual typing of the desired contact's name. As all Symbian phones, E70 phonebook can be synchronized with PC very easy. The PC Suite can export your contacts in several format types, including the most popular Lotus and Outlook formats.
Nokia E70 has a very good call records log. It is used for the data transfers and connections too. It has 30 records capacity and can show all recent calls made with the phone. The phone calls log is divided in three tabs: Dialed, Received and Missed calls. As usual for Symbian, there is a separate Log application, which can store all the events in the last 30 days. The connections are logged with the phone calls. General information about the duration of the connection and data transferred is stored too.
There is a Recent calls menu which shows all calls in the last few days but it is only accessible from the Voice aid application. We couldn't find a reasonable answer to that mystery but probably the manufacturer will improve this feature in the next firmware version.
The QWERTY keyboard of E70 will make you an unbelievably fast SMS writer for sure. Writing was never easier on a mobile phone. Getting used to the keyboard is easy and comes within the first days of use. The numeric keypad is also very well elaborated for writing text messages.
The messaging menu of the phone is not at all different from any other Nokia Symbian phone. It has an Inbox for all incoming messages except emails and asks you for the type of message you want to create when you initiate the editor. The SMS editor is the same as in previous models and shows a character counter with a digit for the amount of messages that will be sent. T9 dictionary is available to assist, of course. The editor displays up to 6 lines en bloc.
Emails are stored in a separate folder and the phone operates with them seamlessly. E70 supports POP3 and IMAP protocols and handles attachments without any problem.
