N95 is a FP1 (Feature pack 1) device. Firmware updates dont update you to FP2 status. For that nokia will make you buy a new phone

What extra's does the feature pack 2 has? Is it not doable for older devices, ie upgrading to FP2 or Nokia doesnt want to do it.

Not doable for older devices. As AZA said Nokia wants you to but a new device to enjoy FP2.

Improvements in FP2 (not all of them, just the ones I remember off the top of my head)

- Standby screen icons/apps can be arranged vertically
- Center button command gets added (no addition of functionality, just an indicator of what the center button does already, duh!)
- Full Screen caller ID (goooooood!)
- Improved contacts app, with more details that can be assigned to a contact
- Timed Profiles (a la Series 40)
- Some improvements in the Email client (better attachment support. Not sure if HTML email is going to be supported out of the box yet)
- Improvement in gallery display and categorization of items in gallery. Tags can be added to photos so they can be organized better
- USB 2.0 speeds for data transfer over cable (not too sure about this)
- "G" standard support for WiFi
- Various visual tweaks in the menus and newer menu arrangement options
- lots of other stuff that I can't remember

The E61i is an excellent phone. My Dad uses one. Not sure of current prices, but I guess it should be about 15.5 to 16K. Does nearly everything the E90 can do, but with a slower (than E90) processor and a 320x240px screen. The screen is so big, the resolution is not enough to make it look really good. It maxes out at 2GB storage (does not take MicroSD-HC). If there's anything specific you want to know about the E61i, I can try and help. BTW, it is built like a tank

If you're planning to buy one, you should know that a newer version is expected in the next quarter with a better keyboard, integrated GPS, slightly better screen resolution (but smaller screen, and square, as in 320x320px) camera and various other improvements. Code named Liam. It will probably be the E67 or E71. Pic here: http://www.boygeniusreport.com/wp-co...1771306_rs.jpg

Thanks hydrashok..

What is the difference between MicroSD and MicroSD-HC ? I am planning to get one because i am getting good deal. ( 10k for 10 day used phone )

I might change the phone before newer version comes.

HC is added to mean that the memory card is high-capacity. Such cards go upto 32gb at present.

That, I second. I've been using it for 6 months and dropped it some 20-30 times - some of them courtesy my son. Love the stainless steel back cover.

Other than 2-3 small scratches and the plastic cover around the camera getting sliiiiightly loose, it works like a charm.

I don't use phones for music, videos, photos much. I do surf and chat quite a lot. Phone calls are a breeze. The speakerphone is very good. The contacts organiser is easy to use. Battery life is pretty decent. Which is, I guess, how it should be, since it is primarily a business phone and not a multimedia device.

Nothing, simply because Prize is defined as:

1. Something given for victory or superiority in a contest or competition or for winning a lottery "the prize was a free trip to Europe"
2. Goods or money obtained illegally
3. Something given as a token of victory

While Price is defined as:

1. The amount of money needed to purchase something "the price of petrol"
