1)About the flip, my oldest flip phone from Motorola is V60i, which was released around 2001(?) and the flip still works perfect! Not sure about flip quality of other mfgrs, though from the company which invented flip phone, you can count, if not bet, on it.
2)The phone is being sold in HK at about US$250. I got one yesterday at US$186...with 1 mth of service (about US$5!). No long term contract!
3)Yes, you can use MP3 as ringtone, which is quite loud too!

@2@XQ: If the java game sets the full screen flag (with the function setFullScreen(true) from the Canvas object) then it will be played full screen (240x320), no bar across the top and no soft keys. The U9 has an ARM11 processor running at 450MHz (I've already posted this information). It does not play .sis (Symbian program) files.
@Y9$Z: I realise that technically grey is not a colour but a cross spectrum absorption of luminosity. However, I happen to like the graphite version of the phone.
@jasmina: You will need the following program installed on Windows (RSDLite 4.2): http://rapidshare.com/files/108137763/RSDLite_4.2.zip
Then you will need to check that you have the right bootloader (version 6.28). In order to check what version you have, hold down star and hash while the phone is off and press power. If not up to date download and unpack this file and flash it to the phone using RSDLite:
Then you need to update the main software of the phone, this file is large (80Mb):
The last file doesn't have an extension. You need to call it .rar, unpack it and flash it with RSDLite.
RSDLite is very simple to use, simply plug the phone in, select it from the list (it should be the only one there), find the file you want to patch a press the button. If you're computer crashes, or the cable unplugs during the transfer, you need to repeat it, but this time putting the phone in bootloader mode (I describe this above), before plugging it into the computer.
I'm not sure of this, but I think updating you're firmware will void your warranty.

can the u9 play jar files properly ie full-screen and not in the corner or enlarged?
also can txt and pdf files be read on it?
@jasmina: I fixed this, but the solution is very involved. I used to have this problem until I updated the firmware. Your firmware must be R6632_G_81.11.29R (you can find this out by going to menu->settings->phone settings->properties->bp s/w version). You need to flash your phone (with a cable and software on a PC) with the latest fireware, which is (R6632_G_81.12.15R).
This will fix the following (as far as I have seen): java games can be installed from the memory card and sms alert while having English menus.
Flashing will erase all your contacts, messages and settings. There is another way, which is to change the menu language. menu->settings->phone settings->language, and select something other than English, assuming you know a second language.
If you need help flashing, let me know and I'll hook you up with all the necessary links and instructions. All you need to have is a USB cable and a PC running windows XP (I don't know if Vista will work).
there is no tone allert for message.there is no option to turn off the talking phone.i can turn off only the talking phone options.if you know how to fix this please write.
Battery life is very good, I'm a frequent user of calls, texting, mp3 playback and general playing around with it and it last for two days. I know it doesn't sound like a lot but trust me , I use it a LOT.
I've also tried using it only for texting and short calls and it got me to three and a half days from one charge.
Turn talking phone off , it's different than turning talking commands off.
hy i just have bought this phone and i allready have problem with the SMS alert tone.i cant change the message allert only the talking phone voice allerts me for sms.i have turned all the talking phone commands but it still going on with this option.can someone tell me how to switch off this option
