I've got a Nokia 3205 phone and this guy in my class has a tx95c phone and wants to trade phones with me. So i was wondering is this a good deal? or is the Nokia better?

I like clamshells so I'm not sure to do this or not.

Please say what you think!

Ask yourself: why would he want to trade his phone? Is it faulty, or is yours better?

The TX95c i think is only 0.1MP ?? vs 0.3MP camera quality on the 3205.
TX95c's are a bit long in the tooth now, and the hinges are ageing relatively badly compared to some other makes that i have seen.

Stick to what you have got. Check trademe prices (find 5 phones of same model that sold in last 3 months, and take the average), that will give you a fair indication of the value of each phone. (Likely to be around $100 for the Hyundai and $140 or so for the 3205 (off the top of my head. I could be wrong)

well i traded phones with this guy, the hyundai tx95c is in really good condition, my 3205 was not quite as good cond. The guy wanted to swap because he likes the creativity with the 3205. Anyway if i want the 3205 back another friend wants the tx95c so would happily swap with me.

the system software version is: T095NZ2T23_0.191 I was reading in another topic that you can get them upgraded to 2T29_0.191 so where would i be able to get this done and how much would it cost?
