Inside the x475's sleek clamshell you'll find a large, 128 x 160 color display with support for 65,000 colors. The outside cover of the handset sports a supplementary 96 x 64 monochrome display that can display time, call information, battery and signal strength, and more. Up and down buttons for volume control are placed on the left side, while 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 also a standard jack to accept universal hands-free headsets.

Calling Features
The x475's phonebook can handle up to 1000 of your contacts, and you can store up to three numbers per entry, plus an email address. In addition to having a discreet vibrating alert, the X475 supports 40-chord polyphonic ringtones, which means you can really jazz up your incoming calls with cool tunes. A number of ringtones come preloaded on the phone and more ringtones can be downloaded from T-Mobile's t-zones service. You can also assign icons and ringers to your most common callers. Like all T-Mobile phones, the x475 supports voice mail, caller ID, conference calling, call forwarding, call waiting, call hold, built-in paging, and access to T-Mobile's 411 service.

Messaging, Internet and Tools
When it comes to messaging and Internet connectivity, the x475 has you covered. The phone features support for ICQ and AOL instant messaging applications (T-Mobile messaging charges apply). There's also a built-in web browser for t-zones downloads and mobile web browsing. T-Mobile's t-zones 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.

A number of handy software tools are bundled with the x475, including a voice memo recorder, a calculator with currency converter, a to-do list, a calendar and an alarm clock.

The x475 is easy to customize to suit your style. Screensavers, themes and wallpapers can be set to your tastes, and you can even browse and download more wallpapers from the t-zones service. The x475 is Java enabled, meaning it supports games and application downloads written on the Java platform. Games are available via the T-Mobile t-zones service.
