Hey, Yea I think the phone is sort of worth its money, but I don't really like phones that are only built to play music. I like phones that can play games, listen to music, movies, Internet, just like the iPhone can. Make sure you have a good day, Happy Lotting!!

A bit disappointing phone. Music Xpress! right. Before you try connecting it to your computer and trying to load your favourate tunes… It becomes evident straight away that NOKIA have put so much in a phone, gave it a great name and did not bother at all to build a half decent software. - The phone does not come with its own drivers for many operating system! NOKIA have depended on Microsoft to build drivers and depends alot on MS media player Ver 10. I am a computer expert but to took me a good 10hrs to get it properly work on my XPsp2 until I downloaded MTP kit from microsoft and downgraded my windows media player to version 10. Even after doing all that, when you connect the phone, you need to select on the phone how you want to link it to your PC (choices: PC suite, Mass storage, Image transfer, Media transfer!!) Madness!! It is not obvious where to put the music! NOKIA have used ./sounds/digital for music location. One would expect to see a directory named something like ‘music’ but it does not exist! And after you have put your music on, It is not easy to work out how you put your music in a playlist! - The phone is a bit slow! - the phone only plays only afew video and audio formats! I this day an age music devices should be able to play all or a decent number of formats.. I found that I could not play almost 70% of my music and video, because the NOKIA do not provide software that can convert to their standard formats! The phone is ok, I like bits of it, like ability to play videos through the TV & others But It still has a long way to go.
