Explanation:
2. shift key
3. ringer selector or composer (there are models where you can select a tone whereas Ericsson has models where you can compose a particular melody).
4. help assistant

"adjustable font" makes sense, and your experience with "composers" backs up something else in the document.
Thank you all very much, and to all a good night. Oops, getting ahead of myself

Explanation:
Just a couple of thoughts (after the event)

3. I'm pretty sure Ericsson calls this a "ring tone composer"
4. Could this just possibly be a "personal digital assistant" (e.g. a Palm Pilot)? They are often used in conjunction with mobile phones.
7. Most frequently called a transceiver ("device" not really necessary)
