When I bought mine I got a usb bluetooth dongle. A bluetooth headset and a copy of myngage suite from Ebay.

MyNgage Suite is a CD Rom with dozens of public domain java script games, ringtones, wallpaper and apps. The apps are things like an Mp3 player, and ebook reader and a chat program that will let you use your AIM and/or Yahoo chat and or MSN chat. It sells for about 6 bucks on ebay or on stratuszone.com

On the MMC card I would go with nothing less than 512 mg. Your going to need it when you download an entire movie to the phone.

And to save your money don't forget to go to www.froogle.com or pricewatch.com to find the best price on your card and bluetooth accessories.

And one more thing. This phone uses symbian...

Yea you'll want both the MMC card and the Bluetooth. There really isn't much system memory so you'lll need it. Just like he said there are thousands of programs written for the Symbian OS. I like to use a free one called Bemused. It, when paired with your computer, become a remote control for winamp. You can view playlists and and play them on your computer. Very cool little program. There are just so many. I's check out www.allaboutsymbian.com. They have loads of programs on the site. Some free, but most you have to pay for. Oh yea, I also have emulators so I can play Game Boy and NES games on the phone as well. I'll never buy another phone without symbian OS again.

The MMC is an essential. Install EVERYTHING to the MMC and keep your N-Gage memory as clear as possible.

Depending on your needs (do you want to sync data with your PC? Howabout installing Series60 applications from PC?) you'll want a Bluetooth dongle. I really recommend the LinkSys USBBT 100, available from NewEgg for around $40. Stay away from the D-Link DBT-120 (I think that's right, it was 120 for certain), it was so buggy I took mine back.

However, if you have an MMC reader for your PC you can just copy over .sis files onto it and install them from there with FExplorer from http://www.gosymbian.com.

If you do a lot of talking while you drive (or other semi active time) you'll want a Bluetooth earpiece. I found the dual mon...
