either a built-in ring tone composer or the
ability to receive ringbones by SMS.

THERE ARE SEVERAL
DIFFERENT TYPES OF LOGOS - WHAT ARE THEY?
There are 4 different types of logo messages:
Operator Graphic replacement: - where the existing
operator icon (typically text such as Network) is
replaced with a Logo or picture.
NOTE: Once a logo has been replaced it is not
possible for the user to revert back to their
original logo without a special message being sent
to the phone.
Group Graphic pictures: - Pictures can be assigned
to phone numbers on some models. When that number
calls and it is recognized the graphic will appear
on the screen.
Pure Picture messages: - The ability to send
messages which include a picture from one mobile
phone user to another. This is supported by the
latest Nokia phones (e.g. Nokia 3330& 8310) and
allows users to send a picture (graphical image)
and some text to another user.
Screen Saver Pictures: - Picture Messages from
this site can also be used as screen savers on the
new Nokia 3330. The 3330 screen saver feature is
based on the Nokia Picture Message format. Any
received Picture Message can be displayed as
screen saver. The timer for the screen saver can
be set to 5sec.-10min, meaning that when the 3330
has been idle or inactive for this user-defined
length of time, the screen saver is activated.
These days PCs have screen savers, but we expect
this to migrate to mobile phones too, and the
Nokia 3310 is the first and so far the only phone
to allow this.

that can receive Animated Screensavers
