It seemed good at the time but if it doesn't work there are no good points
The Siemens SL45 seems to be a jumble of technical mistakes and built in obscelesence. Immediately after the one year warranty expires it starts to switch off, the screen fades, the battery fails to charge, and so on. It just falls apart. Wherever this thing is made quality is not important. Siemens seems to know that it falls apart and seem to just say that they don't care... I have been on the webpage, called service support, been to the local support center ($150 to fix it without guarantee that it will work!). Short of flying back to Prague where I bought the phone I have been everywhere trying to get them to take responsibility for a bad product. No one seems to care about backing the quality of the product.
