    Is it possible to download games for cell phones for free and put them on like we can for DS, GBA, etc?

    it probably is possible. But someone would, like the DS, have to buy the game and then dump it. And an emulator may work.

    Yep, assuming your phone has java support (most do), you can just download the .jav file, put it on your phone, and then open it on your phone, 'install' it, and play it. Simple.

    Thats the same as a ROM request. You'll have to find it yourself

    There's a whole pirate market out there for those and have been for quite a few years. About 5 years ago I had an Ipaq and I was able to nail down stuff like the killer Hyperspace Delivery Boy(I recommend looking it up) and in those same irc channels and connected websites/ftps there were just as many phone games for symbian and java based phones.

    My friend installed some software on his phone to turn it into a developers copy, which lets him DL everything for free.

    Sure is. I grabbed my old N95 and installed n-gage on there about 2months ago. Have about 10 different games on it not. There not any good though lol.

    I used to have an 02 atom, had age of empires on there, it was great.

    I bought a few, have a Nokia 6133 if I remember right. They have a really cool version of the PC game Caesar on there that works fantastically in an episodic format (I think it has a free mode too.) Also Lumines on the mobile is fantastic, as is Arkanoid(it's not the arcade one, no enemies) and also Mega Man II but it's a bitch to play using the keypad.

    I just wish he would tell me how to do it.
    He said that it was a huge pain in the ass.

    In the USA, there are the major cell companies... listed is the network, type of "games" it uses and if it's hackable...


    T-Mobile - Java - hackable
    ATT - Java - hackable
    Sprint - Java - hackable
    Nextel - Java - hackable
    Verizon - BREW - NOT hackable
    Cricket (Jump Wireless) - BREW - NOT hackable

    NOTE! This list is for CELL PHONES ONLY... not Smartphones, CrackBerry's, iPhones, Windows Mobile Phones... only CELL PHONES...

    Just to let you know, I've had a Motorola RAZR and Samsung D807 (slider) and have downloaded and played tons of games on both. Love Doom RPG!

    Just know where to look!
