Looks good, light, large view screen.
Switches itself off. High cost of data cable/software/sync station/MMC/headphones. Limited to tx/rx pictures/ring tones only to other siemans phones. Poor battery life
The Siemens SL42 mobile phone looks stylish and good but don't let that fool you into buying it! The accessories needed to make the phone be of use cost the earth and they are not easily found. To use the MP3 is just not worth the hassle, you'd be better off getting a Nokia 8310 and use the superior FM radio. The phone has a nasty habit of switching itself off during calls and sms messages, and if you like to move quickly between the menu then the phone does not like this either and oh! off again. My advice would be to stay well clear.
