The Contacts app on the Exhibit II's dock can be synced with your Google account or Microsoft Exchange, as well as Facebook and other social networks. It will also bring in your friend's profile pictures, and your calendar.
Contacts can be sorted via Favorites, or by marking people as Friends, Family or Co-workers. The Contacts app also creates a group for contacts who use Qik, a pre-installed video mail service (video chat too if you sign up for premium).
Contacts is integrated with the dialer and call history for easy access.
The Phone icon on the dock handles calling and traditional voicemail. Visual voicemail is available, through a separate pre-loaded app.
Phone is integrated with Contacts, for quick access to your phone book and sorted contacts.
The Exhibit II's earpiece speaker is a little on the quiet side. The speakerphone, however, was nice and loud, and picked up our voice well.
In the city of San Francisco, T-Mobile's HSPA+ network performed admirably. Calls were stable and clear, and never dropped.
