Questiona about this phone

I am thinking of purchasing this phone and would like to ask some questions here instead of relying on salespeople please:

1] I have heard that you get the phone with different accessories depending on where you buy it, what are the standard acessories I am supposed to get with this phone?

2] What do they mean when they say you get this phone "unlocked" and which is better locked or unlocked?

3] I see some phones with "single" card and some with "double" cards, what does this mean?

Thanks.

1) you should get the TV out cable, headphones, remote with built in mic, and obviously battery and charger with the handset. might also come with an SD card but this depends on your carrier.

2) unlocked means you can use the device with any network carrier, locked means you are tied down to the particular carrier you bought the handset from. unlocked is better, but a locked mobile can be unlocked pretty simply.

3) i have no idea what this means i'm afraid, dual SIM perhaps? :S

Dual SIM N95 means you can place two sim cards in one phone, you own one phone but you can have two different phone numbers, it is very convenient for you especially for the business man.

Is there a version of the N95 that supports 2 SIMs simultaneously?

That would be great for me as I use Vodafone for voice and TMob for data.

The Chinese fakes are dual-sim, but don't have gps, high speed data access, only work on two frequencies (like a Nokia 1600) as opposed to quadband (work in US), wont work on the 3 network.

You're really better off going with a genuine Nokia.

With Orange there is some capability for using two separate phone accounts with a genuine Nokia N95 with their particular sim card

How can you tell which is a "genuine' nokia N95 when ordering the phone over the net?
