Actually this phone is not as good as it might seem. I have used it for over a year now, and its display has got some problems. Sometimes it isn't working at all, if I press it on the phone, it is working again, if I take off the cover it works too. Crazy. Sometimes the display turns black-white instead of white-black, looks funny, but it is annoying. Sometimes it just freezes, if that happens you're not able to do anything; you have to take out the battery.

The games shine-shine wrote about are Nokia Snake, Nokia Rotation, Memory and Logic.

In my opinion, it could be much better. I've heard about other people having the same problems so that could be fixed. It should be able to store more than fifteen SMS, that's not many. After all, if its display is ok, it is a cool mobile phone (and it probably looks better than the phones of your friends ;).
