General Comments
I am now on my third SL45, As the first two kept giving me "Card Error" messages which causes the phone to Crash, like a PC. Not only that, but the phone (if you can call it that) is inclined to switch itself off 2-3 times a day, on a full battery. Now this one is starting to do the same. 8 months, three phones, heading for a fourth. The problem is the Multi Media Card, supposedly an innovation in mobile media, more like a nightmare. This little card causes so much trouble it stops the phone from functioning as a phone. The developers at siemens need to learn how to walk first before they run. If it can't do it's primary function, and operate as a phone, what use is it to anyone?

My company gave out 45 of these phones to the staff in my office, and over 25 have been returned, the rest are still working, only just. Did I mention they are only 8 months old?

Back to the drawing board I think, or ask the guys in Nokia to help you out!
