(+) Battery Performance: It has a maximum rated standby time of 226 hours and a talk time of 660 minutes, which is above average and should be sufficient for most users.
(+) Color Display: The color display's color mode is unknown and its resolution is unknown. A color display helps for browsing the wireless web or viewing pictures and, of course, the larger it is, the better the experience and, the more colors, the better your pictures will look.
(-) Analog Roaming: It doesn't support analog roaming. Analog is the older North-American cellular technology, however North-American networks are increasingly converting to large digital-only networks, which makes analog a not-so-useful feature (check coverage maps for your area to discriminate on that aspect).
(-) Bluetooth: It is not Bluetooth-enabled. Bluetooth is not really necessary but may be handy if you want to use a wireless headset or exchange data with your (Bluetooth-enabled) laptop, for instance.
(-) Infrared: It doesn't include an infrared port. Infrared is convenient, especially if you own a laptop (most laptops are infrared equipped), you can then use your computer to transfer contacts, ringtones or pictures (if the phone supports these functions) to the Sony Ericsson T226.
(+) Text Messaging: It features a special way of typing text, either a full keyboard or some predictive text entry method such as T9 or iTAP. This will be useful if you need to send short messages: it's much faster.
(+) Voice Note: It includes voice notes . A voice note system is quite useful to make quick notes and reminders while on the road.
(+) Free Custom Ringtones: . It seems to support ringtone customization in a do-it-yourself manner, but we recommend double-checking. To help assess this phone's behavior with ringtones, check out the ringtone compatibility list.
