great no-frills phone!

Reviewed on Saturday October 9, 2004 by , montreal
In looking for a new mobile phone, my main criterion was clear reception. I compared reviews for about two dozen phones, and this Siemens model seemed to get the best reviews. So I bought it. I've had mine for 2 months and I can honestly say that it has the best reception of any phone I've tried, both on my end and on the other end (the limiting factor is Fido's network coverage, not the phone's reception). Menu is simple, but does all the basics. Only drawback is lack of bluetooth synchronization capabilities (but, really, what do you expect from a no-frills phone?).

Bang for your buck

I've had the phone for a while and have been very happy with it. Compact, light, easy to use. Nice features although no bells and whistles. Pretty good reception and very decent battery life. The only aspect of this phone that i have had problems with is that even at the loudest setting, the ringer volume is not very audible; if it's in my purse and i'm out and about chances are i won't hear it. Other than that, I would definitely recommend it.

I've this phone for last 7 months. The reason I bought it was the cheaper price. I'm totally satisfied with it. It's very compact. Couple times it dropped the signal, I guess that is the fault of Fido signals. It got a long life. I dropped it thousands of times, still working good.

I had never owned a cell phone and this was the start-up with Fido. Now I just pay as I go as I have a landline. Very light and easy to use features. Happy first time cellular user with this phone.

I had this phone while living in the UK for six months. Very handy and simple to use with good features. Small and lightweight. Good beginner phone or for someone who wants the basics but with some fun features. Durable as well, as I dropped it many times.
