How to make your S60 v2 look (more) like N95

Ok this is a collection of advices/help etc on how to make your s60 v2 look more like the N95 (v3). I really like you all to help me out with anything you can find and come up with as I haven't even used a N95.
I hope you all try to keep this high or even sticky it. Also, tell me what you think of this thread!

Preparation

Set your phone to have active standby, then you have shortcuts, calendar dates, to-dos and music.

Active standby Symbian V3 (Could be N95)

Active standby Symbian V2 (Nokia 6680)

Themes

You can choose whichever of these themes you want, I personally like V2 best.

Ringtones

http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1144287 - Provided by JonnyBruha (I recommend not to use these unless your phone is good enough to handle them, as for my 6680 it just sound bad may be beacause of the stereo/surrond sound)

Programs
GPS
Any GPS program. I recommend something like TomTom (Which, too bad, is not free). You will find some alternatives here: http://my-symbian.com/s60/software/c...php?fldAuto=30

Games
System Rush: Evolution
This racing game is a real hit for the N95, there is a prequal that might be able to run on your phone. The prequal is called System Rush and is for the N-gage, so you might be able to obtain it (illigal or not, I don't know) and put it on your phone. That must be the closest to the original I can think of.

Hardware

GPS

Any bluetooth GPS-reciever, you could find these pretty cheap on ebay, ~$20.

3.5mm stereo jack

You can also find these on ebay, ~$7. You put them in the headset jack and it converts the headset plug into a 3.5mm jack. It can also come with a microphone, so you can use it a headset + your favorite headphones.

Big memory card

Now, get yourself a big memory card. I have a 1 GB, but you can have whatever your phone supports. IMO you should have atleast 1 GB.

What missing now?

Well, there's the radio (If your phone doesn't have this), the 5 MPix camera, the media control buttons and maybe some hardware buttons... I don't know anything else. Please do respond!
