I have a TX115 and, for what it's worth, I don't think the extra $100 is justified unless you really like the clamshell design.

Nokia 'Cause you can actually store photos you get sent on your phone

Edit: I take that back - you CAN now download photos onto a Hyundai.

Nokia.
Billions of Nokia dollars of research spent on the menu, so you can use it blind
Ringtones sound just as good
Way more games x heaps
Cutout covers (vs $ in a store.)
You have 2 get used to the keys if u txt lots.

There isnt really anything that makes the Hyundai worth $100 dollars more, I dont understand why the 6225 is $499 when there are almost no differences between the 3205 and the 6225 http://www.telecom.co.nz/mobile/shop/front/1,,204449-201928,00.html?action=/mshop_handsetGallery

*shrugs* The 6225 is a more "professional" looking phone whereas the 3205 is more aimed for teenagers? hence the $200 gap.

Does anyone know the actual difference between the 3205 and the 6205, I have been unable to find a difference apart from one looks like a toy, the other looks like our GM's phone.

I shelled out $500 for my 6225 thinking, it's gotta be better, it's the most expensive!

I like the Nokia, I love being able to download games into it "free" with a $35 data cable.

the keys are sucky but quite easy one you get the hang of it and nice and tactile.

I do like the hyundai for some reason. Not sure why. It's actually quite a nice phone.

Speaking of that $35 data cable (I assume thats the DKU -5) where abouts can you get one for $35?

Some guy on trademe, they are cheap and chinese and can be a bit finicky sometimes but seem to work OK once the phone is detected (sometimes you have to interrogate the phone to "see" it in the Nokia manager.

They are a DKU-5 Compatible, Uses a built in "prolific" USB - Serial interface and the DKU on top of that.

Try MOBIMB, seems to work well but pricey, though it works seamlessly with these cheap cables.
Nokia's software is about 40MB, Mobimb is about 2MB.

BEWARE Teleom stores accessories, they push cr@ppy non original accesoriess for more then you would actually pay for the real thing, a ca$h cow.
Data cables are $200, non original. nuff said.
