    Anyone remember the N-gage???

    So i was in gamestop yesterday wanting to trade in my 17 dollars worth of PS2 games on a new game. I was holding the godfather in my hand when i looked down and saw the ngage qd for 49.99 and i thought why not? im tired of my psp games being so expensive and the games are only 3 bucks and really addicting.

    So my question is this. It came with a Cingular lingo on the box and a cingular sim and 10 bucks of GoPhone credit. I was wondering if anyone know that i could trade it out for a tmo sim i get off ebay because theyre cheap. Cingular is a jip i think and they make you pay for everything does anyone know how to get around this or something? Or a place to get cheap refill cards? I have a real phone but itd be nice to use this one for internet. thanks.

    Lol, so you don't even have a current plan at all?

    I think that cingular go-phone is the easier pay as you go service, but idk.

    I'd highly suggest just setting up a monthly plan. Its obvious that you don't need much, I'd suggest a 400 minutes plan, I'm sure you could get it for very cheap.

    You'd also have to unlock it for T-mobile, you'll either have to send it out or possibly find/buy the code online (arround 5-10 bucks).

    Well, I'm pretty sure that if it says cingular on it then its locked to cingular. If you've got a friend with t-mobile you could borrow his sim card to see if it'll work in the N-gage. If it is locked to cingular then you will need to get the unlock codes.

    So, you just went to gamestop and they had n-gages in stock for 50 bucks? Might have to pick one up for a fun backup phone.

    Possibly even sell it on ebay, they sell for arround 100 I think.

    yeah i know! it was like 35 bucks after i gave them two ps2 games and i also got tomb raider but that was like 3 bucks. The guy had to go in the back and get it and it was covered in dust and the packaging was discolored but it works great. i love the symbian OS.

    I dont know if theyre locked to cingular. it has the cingular ringtone and thats all i can find of cingular on it.

    I still have my QD from two years ago. And I still use it (as a phone tho, not to play games).

    To my surprise, this phone is built TOUGH! I once dropped it while I was on top of an escalator. As it tumbled down, every piece was falling into pieces. Luckily I was able to recover them all (oh the embarrassment!). Then once I was able to piece them all again together, the phone worked just as good as the first day I got it.

    And yes, I'm THAT careless with my phones. hehehe

    N-Gage QD is a great phone well ahead of its time. but you can't compare it with N95 (but most people do and then complain that QD lacks many features) what they ought to think the difference in time when the phones were launched.
    the important thing is that QD still has a place in my heart i still have it and am proud to use it.
    still some of my friends ridicule me for using it
    i love my QD

    I wasn't really a fan. It had a bunch of games, but most looked/were pretty bad. I think that it was ahead of it's time as well, but the physical design/profile is what killed it in my mind. I'd rather have a PDA brick up to my head than an N-Gage.
    I wish verizon didn't have the best service and the worst phones.
