The sophisticated Nokia 7205 Intrigue will turn heads with its black exterior, hidden-until-lit external display, and internal color keypad.

With support for the EV-DO high-speed data standard, you'll enjoy fast access to the Internet and Verizon Wireless multimedia services (additional charges applicable), with average download speeds ranging from 400 to 700 Kbps and peak rates up to 2 Mbps. (Learn more about where EV-DO coverage is offered.) The V Cast Music service enables you to download songs instantly to your phone, or purchase music through your PC and transfer the files to your phone. If purchased from your phone, you'll receive two copies of the song: a Windows Media Audio Pro Plus format at 64Kbps stereo is sent to your phone, and a Windows Media Audio 9 format at 160Kbps stereo is sent to your account in the V CAST Music online store for downloading to your PC. V Cast Music offers nearly 2 million songs, with more being added all the time.
In addition to the V Cast Music service, this phone is also compatible with the Verizon Wireless V CAST Music with Rhapsody, which enables you to access this exclusive digital music service for RealNetworks and for MTV Networks. V CAST Music with Rhapsody delivers unlimited monthly access to music on up to three Rhapsody-compatible mobile phones and players and online on multiple PCs and Web browsers. In addition, customers who purchase music over-the-air are able to download the master copy of the songs or albums to their PCs free of digital rights management (DRM) software that restricts how and where music can be played.
With this GPS-enabled phone, you'll be able to access the Verizon Wireless VZ Navigator service (additional charges applicable) for voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions, heads-up alerts, local search of nearly 14 million points of interest in the US (such as landmarks, restaurants and ATMs), and detailed color maps. And the Chaperone service lets you easily locate your loved ones from your Verizon Wireless phone or PC in real time. After defining a zone, such as an area designating a school or summer camp, you'll be sent an alert via text message when the Chaperone handset enters or leaves the zone.
The Intrigue also features Bluetooth stereo music streaming, MicroSD expansion to 8 GB, and a 2-megapixel camera with flash.
The Nokia 7205 Intrigue's unique external display blends into its smooth black exterior. When an incoming call or text is received, the display instantly illuminates, and you can also view incoming text messages, play music from the phone's digital audio player, and snooze the alarm clock--all from the external display.
The large, bright internal 2.2-inch display has a 240 x 320-pixel resolution and support for 262K colors. It also includes a nature-inspired design setting called Habitat mode, exclusively designed by Nokia and only available with Verizon Wireless service. When the Habitat mode is activated, contacts are presented in chronological order, providing an engaging and intuitive way for customers to track, visualize and connect with their contacts. You can also customize each contact with a photo or icon.

Handsfree communication is easy thanks to the integrated speakerphone (with dedicated key). This phone also provides Bluetooth wireless connectivity (version 2.0), and includes profiles for communication headset, handsfree car kits, and file transfer. With the A2DP Bluetooth profile, you can stream your music to a pair of compatible Bluetooth stereo headphones. You can connect your laptop (either via Bluetooth or wired USB) and enjoy dial-up networking--surf the Internet, send email, and access files from a server (additional charges or subscription applicable).
The 2-megapixel camera offers five resolution options (1600 x 1200, 1280 x 960, 640 x 480, 320 x 240, and 160 x 120 pixels) and features an integrated flash and 4x digital zoom. Other features include a dedicated camera/video key, portrait/landscape capture mode, self timer, and white balance settings (auto, sunny, cloudy, tungsten, fluorescent, and darkness). Additionally, the camera can capture video clips with audio.
The digital audio player offers compatibility for MP3, WMA and unprotected AAC/AAC+ formats, and the phone includes external touch-senstive music controls on the top of the clamshell face. You can create and manage playlists right on the phone and the library can be organized by artist, genre and album. This phone also has a music-only mode (or flight mode) where the cellular radio is turned off, enabling you to still play music.
Other features include:
- Organizer tools: Calculator, Calendar, Calendar Preview, Alarm Clock, World Clock, Stopwatch, and Notepad
- Speaker-independent voice commands
- Micro USB 2.0
- 2.5mm stereo audio jack
- 72-cord polyphonic ringtones
- Voice memo recorder
- TTY compatible
- Hearing aid compatibility = M3/T4
The Nokia Intrigue weighs 3.2 ounces and measures 3.56 x 1.85 x 0.55 inches. Its 860 mAh lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 4 hours (240 minutes) of talk time, and up to 264 hours (11 das) of standby time. It runs on the CDMA 800/1900 frequencies as well as the Verizon Wireless EV-DO data network.

All in all, this has been a terrible experience. My brother has a similar model and is on his third phone. I would not recommend this brand or their line of slider phones. Perhaps their other phones are better but who knows. I will never buy another Samsung.
-Pressing a button on a touch screen and watching as a button in a completely different area is pressed (this will happen about 10 times before it magically starts working or you turn it off and try again).
-Pressing a button on a touch screen multiple times as nothing happens (same results as before).
-Having to turn off your phone occasionally because the touch screen freezes.
-Having to press multiple redundant buttons just to perform a simple task.
-Dialing numbers with your face while you are on the phone (got to use that lock button).
-Having particles of dust seemingly activate buttons on your phone as it sits untouched (need the lock button again).
-Being unable to simply send more than one picture at a time (want to send some to your email? One at a time, baby. Apparently this is easier if you use the USB attachment but guess what? That only works with PC's.)
The keyboard is decent if you have small fingers, and the sound quality on calls seems fine.
If you like hearing your phone ring in a setting with any sort of louder than average noise, you won't. Use vibrate.
I'm surprised I haven't thrown this phone out of a window from pure frustration. The screen-protecting sheet of plastic has a few marks on it from angry finger-smashing as a result of the absolute fail of a touchscreen.
I bought the Glyde when it was first released. I had the occasional problem with the touchscreen. However, in recent times, the screen only got worse. It was opening menus by itself, it was opening all the wrong things, the screen would freeze. I read about the "Refresh" version and immediately called Verizon trying to get my phone swapped out. After numerous phone calls and a software update, they finally shipped me out the "Refresh."
This version of the phone works a million times better. The resistive touchscreen is great. I never have ANY problem with the phone opening a menu on the other side of the screen. It always opens the right menus. I can use my fingernail, a pen, or a stylus to operate the touchscreen now. This phone is finally working the way it should have a long time ago!
There are, however, two cons that I have noticed with this phone. Twice in the last two days, the screen has seemed to freeze. While I was typing with the QWERTY keyboard, the letters would stop appearing on the screen. However, the amount of characters I used was still increasing. The only way to fix it was to close the message and start over. Not really a big deal though. The only other con is that occasionally when the screen is off and completely black, if I touch the screen, it will light up without the pressing of any buttons. However, this also is not a big deal.
I only have a year left with this phone. But I am glad that I finally 100% love this phone. I think it is great that Samsung acknowledged the problems with the touchscreen and fixed them.Read more ›
