I bought a Nokia 5500 to replace my 5140i and in doing to felt I had jumped a decade in technology. The phone is packed with features, is robust and splashproof as well as being quite petite.

The bright LED torch is very useful and the phone is also fitted with some form of accelerometer which measures the g forces acting on the phone - this is obviously to make the pedometer work in the sports mode, but also has a game called Groove Labyrinth where you roll a ball around a track simply by tilting the phone - very clever!

It uses S60 software which makes it as adaptable as a PDA, you can download all sorts of applications for it, plus link to your computer to use it as a mobile memory chip.

As far as I can find out, you can't unlock them if they're tied to a network.

Now I've got to buy another one for my wife.
