    Re: Two Nokia 6100 handsets destroyed by Oxygen Software

    I downloaded the cracked version, tried it, found it to be no more useful
    than Nokias own PC Suite, so I turned it back into fresh disk space.

    Reading this thread, I'm bloody glad that a) I used the cracked version,
    just because I could, and b) deleted it.

    Thanks to all above. very entertaining and educational read.
