    And most Nokia phones have a hidden game if you press from the main screen "Menu, 4, 8, 1, 9"
    Have fun it's a great game

    edit: have just tried it on my new Nokia & it no longer works Oh well

    999 also works if your keypad is locked too.

    Isn't the game called 'random languages' and you then have to try to get it back into English to have any hope of using the phone again??
