Well, it probably isn't the F505i. (I suspect that the other 505s are
similar.) It's really easy to get the picture in, since it's just
another field in the screen you're filling in. However, here are some of
my complaints about it.
1. The picture it shows in the address book is very, very small, and
there's no way to jump to the larger version. There's no way even to
find out what the larger version is named, though it's in your pictures
folder as well. Nor, as you take it in the address book, is there a way
to set the name of the photo.
2. It's not possible to quickly scroll through your address book looking
at the pictures. You have to look at the list of names (where it
indicates whether there's a picture or not), select one, which brings up
the full address screen and the pic., and then go back to the list when
you're done looking at it. Three keystrokes instead of one for every one
you want to scroll through--ouch.
3. You can easily browse through our photos in the folders under "my
pictures", but there's no way to find out what address book entry a
photo is associated with.
4. You can save the address book to the mini-SD card. You can save
pictures to the mini-SD card. There's no way of associating the two. In
fact, from the looks of it, if you back up your phone book to a mini-SD
card and then reload it, you lose all of the photos.
5. Not really an address book quibble, but you lose all of the filenames
you assigned in your phone when you transfer your pics to the mini-SD
card. They come out as F0000001.jpg and so on instead.
Sometimes I really wonder what these guys were doing in the way of
