    I love my N-Gage to death, but I have a problem - it died on me like a week ago. I really don't understand why either, I bought it from someone on this very site, and it worked fine for about a month, and before you know it the sound died on me and I couldn't get ring tones nor could I hear anything from games. Now it won't even turn on. I went to a Nokia store and they couldn't figure out the issue with the sound, but I've talked to a few people who think the reason it died is because of a broken battery.

    Now I treat my games with all the care in the world, so I know for a fact it wasn't me dropping it or anything like that, I just need to know where to go from here, because I don't have a warranty, and I really want to get back into the N-Gage scene.
    Mostly just play Nintendo 64. If you've got games PM me! Cart only.

    i learned from DP the hard way it's all about the sniper programs "you just set it and forget it" I'm sure there will be another cheep Puzzle Bobble VS coming along soon. Glad to see the N-Gage getting some collectors. I think it's the perfect system to collect for.

    I guess I can do it but would it suffice to say that the spine simply has the Virtua Tennis text as it appears on the front of the box? It really isn't blank. Honest!

    Good enough for me, I got to go check my Gamestops' to see if they have the non-blank one.

    I just picked up an n-gage QD last week and i'm so happy!

    I get much stronger signal then i did with any of the other phones i previously had

    Are pocket kingdom and splintercell really worth the price? i mean i looked at reviews for other games on the system and it made me wonder if i should buy any games for the system
    12 US SMS games to go
    74 US DC games to go

    First make sure you download a free copy of Snakes. It's one of the N-Gages best games and it's free. I think $25 isn't that much to pay for a good portble game so I'd say that yes their worth it, but I can see your logic if you bought both. I'd start with Pocket Kingdom since the controls are alot simpler and the game is very addictive.

    also stay away from games that got bad reviews chances are they're right the N-Gage has some pretty bad games but still has some great ones.

    That's good to hear. I ordered one last week (if FedEx would quit screwing around and actually deliver it I'd be much happier than I am right now). I live pretty far outside the city limits and signal is kind of hit & miss when I'm at home. I hope my N-Gage gets better signal than my current phone.

    Don't want to start a new thread so...has The Roots: Gates of Chaos been released yet? I've seen different release dates everywhere.

    well your guess is as good as mine. the release dates on N-Gage games change like the weather. I do know its not out yet. It is "supposed" to come out mid May but who knows. I tried to figure out for the longest time when Worms was coming out and then all of a sudden it was just there.

    Yeah I know, according to Gamestop.com it comes out the 6th or somewhere around there.

    It's not out now, but Nokia sent out review copies to magazines and webpages a few days ago. So a mid-may release is most likely.

    Got my N-Gage QD yesterday. I'm amazed at how good the phone signal is. All of the places where I had no signal at all on my old phone have good strong signals on my N-Gage. Very impressive IMO for a phone with no external antenna.

    Of course the downside to this is that when I'm out on the lake fishing, my wife will probably be able to get ahold of me now.

    Hey classicb do you know what is the story behind Shade: Wrath of Angels? It seems as if you can purchase on the N-gage webstore. But I had never heard of this game before. It also seems that a new game Hinter Wars has been announced: http://www.hinterwars.com/html/human_colony.html
