If the dealer is any good settings should already be on the phone for MMS

No settings required for the others

In all seriousness, does anyone really care about V-Live?

The actual phone functions, TV receiver aside, will all work fine.

As to N85 Vs N96 - the N85 is the better handset. That said the N85 has bad problems with build quality variation, and I know of a number of people who have been through as many as half a dozen to get one that was acceptable (check nokiausers forum for more details).

To be perfectly honest I would go for the N86, which is largely the same, but with better build quality and a better camera. Its only very slightly more expensive than the N96.

EDIT: Just saw the question about e-infotech. I've purchased from them and it was fine, others have had variable experiences (mostly in the customer service department). I'd buy from them again if they had a handset I wanted at a consierably cheaper price-point than somewhere like phonesdirect (which I prefer).

Why not? Spend an extra $30, get the N86 and be happy...
