This great dual band, entry-level phone boasts features more often found on more expensive handsets. With support for multimedia messaging, mobile instant messaging, and Cingular MEdia Net wireless Internet services, this phone is anything but plain Jane. It's the perfect complement to Cingular wireless service.
The X427M sports a slim, sleek clamshell design with a large 128 x 160 color display with 65,000 colors. A stub antenna is placed on the top right side of the unit. Up and down buttons for volume control are placed on the left side. Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's control pad. There's a standard jack on the top of the unit to accept universal hands-free headsets, while the phone's charging and data ports are placed on the bottom of the unit.
The X427M features 40-chord polyphonic ringtones, and in addition to the built-in ringers you can download more from Cingular's MEdia service. A vibrate alert silently notifies you of incoming calls when you want to be discreet. The phone's internal memory lets you create an internal phone book of 500 alphanumeric entries. Caller ID, call forwarding, call waiting, three-way calling and other standard features help you more efficiently handle your phone conversations.
The X427M has all the bases covered when it comes to messaging and Internet connectivity. The phone features support for AOL Instant Messenger (Cingular messaging charges apply), and there's also a built-in web browser for MEdia downloads and mobile web browsing. Cingular's MEdia service lets you receive and send emails, read news headlines, get weather updates, download games and ringtones, and more. Traditional text messaging, as well as picture and sound messaging are also supported by the phone. T9 text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.
The phone supports the GPRS wireless data protocol, meaning that when used with a Cingular data plan and the phone's data port, the X427M can be used as a wireless modem for laptops and PDAs.
A number of handy software tools are bundled with the X427M including a calculator with currency converter, an alarm, a to-do list, and a calendar.
