This is my experience when I replaced my old Gutsy with Intrepid.

When I use Linux, I always divide my hard disc into 3 partitions, System, Swap and /Home. It’s a good idea because next time you want to replace your OS, you will not lost all your /Home data.

When I choose to buy this mobile phone, my main concerns are the 3G, Bluetooth, Music and Camera features. But, Nokia Express Music 5320 comes with some other features like Radio, Recorder, Video, 2 Camera (front & back), Nokia Map, GPS data (need external GPS), Message Reader, Real Player, Quick Office, Adobe Reader, N-gage games, FLV (flash video) ready and few other more.
