The Gusto has a VGA camera, which can only take pictures up to a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. The camera has a night vision feature and a few other camera settings, but nothing too robust. The phone only has 32 megabytes of internal memory that has to be shared by everything, and no SD card slot, so don’t plan on getting too much use out of the camera anyway.
The Gusto has a browser to access the mobile web, and there are plenty of menu options where you can download ringers, games and other applications. The Gusto can send and receive SMS and MMS messages, and you can access instant messaging, chat and email through the browser. When you type messages, the Gusto has T9 predictive text, and while T9 is a little annoying once you have used a phone with a full keyboard, it is still much better than the other keypad texting option, multitap.
The Gusto has a driving mode, which means that the phone will adjust the volume to high, turn off any vibrate settings and will read the incoming caller ID information aloud. The Gusto also comes with support for stereo Bluetooth headsets, and has several voice command options.
One of the strangest additions is a fake call feature, where a few presses of the speakerphone button will make the phone ring with a pre-set caller ID, to allow you to gracefully exit certain social situations. It’s a cool little feature, that hopefully you don’t have to overuse.
