The phone is not direct enough. You have to push to many buttons for every thing you do. You cant just send a text you have to go to directorys then pick names out, then pick numbers for names. I think the nokia menu and use is much better (read more)

While shopping for a new phone, I came across the Ericsson T65, Siemens ME45, Siemens S45, and Siemens M50 after narrowing down my requirements to GPRS-enabled handsets for under US$ 184. Between these units I ended up with the S45 because it offered the most feature for that price range, as well as the best ergonomics between the phones mentioned above. The software user-interface (UI) is neither better nor worse than Nokia's benchmark usability with some good additions. For starts, the... (read more)

I found this to be a very good handset. I was overjoyed when I opened the box and found a data cable and software. The functions are very impressive and you can store many things on the phone. You can even create folders and save files on the phone. Lots of storage space in phonebooks and contact list. The battery lasts for ages and takes under and hour to recharge fully. The GPRS work very good as well as the W@P. The volume is a bit low for me, but acceptable. The only negative points are... (read more)

Hi, i think my S45 is great! I work for the WAP/Data Dept of O2 and have access to test every mobile but i chose this one
. With the latest software version 21 it adds an extra GPRS timeslot to make it 4+1, Nokia GPRS mobiles are currently only 3+1 (3 downlinks, 1 uplink or 2+2) this means that the S45 will outrun any other current mobile for pure GPRS speed.
That was my main reason for buying this fairly priced/great performance mobile. The menu can be difficult to use, but fine after a while. (read more)

The Siemens S45 mobile phone is great value for money, got mine from carphonewarehouse for £99.99, great details on phone but could do better on volume. Should do better ringtones and changeable covers. (read more)

Well done, you have observed the first sensible rule of capitalism - don't believe the hype, it's nearly always craap. However, after reading extensive reviews, some from this site, i bought the Siemens s45 mobile phone. It must be understood that this fone is very much aimed at business.
The deal: I got a pay-as-you-go fone on T-mobile from argos.com for £99. very good deal. shop around, everywhere else sold the fone for no less than £180 on payg.
The fone: this fone has just over 1/3... (read more)

Saw this Siemens S45 mobile phone on pay as you go for only £90 in the argos sale, so thought I'd upgrade from by M35. Took a SIM from Virgin mobile no problem at all. Great phone, tons of features (been looking for a decent IrDA phone to use with my PDA), plus the benefit of a data cable and software included - so easy to sync with Outlook.
I'm not wildly keen on the more recent Nokia phones that are verging on style over content and I find the Sonys a bit fiddly to use. The S45 is a... (read more)

Have found with the Siemens S45 mobile phone that if you want to keep a large number of appointments, then it won't satisfy you indefinitely. (read more)

Got the Siemens S45 mobile phone as an upgrade for £35 with BT Cellnet. Definitely worth the money as it's superior in virtually every respect over my previous mobile (a C35i).
Have seen some references to a speakerphone, but can't find this feature myself. Any ideas anyone? (read more)

It was my biggest mistake to upgrade from a Nokia 8210 to this Siemens S45 mobile phone. The features of the phone appealed me but totally disappointed. The build quality is poor, reception is poor (almost no signal in most buildings). Replaced three times because of the display problems. Software is too slow, typing a SMS is a torture. Keypad is insensitive.
Totally this phone can not be compared with a Nokia or Sony and loses in all aspects. (read more)

The Siemens S45 mobile phone is great value for money, not as crazy as other phones which are not even as good...! And I like the look of it, it is sooooo conservative, not like those Nokia. ppl likes it coz they can play around with their funky cases, but this Siemens, the look is already good enough! For the function, so easy to use, it's just....excellent!!!!! The most I like about the phone is the way they do the background light dim off....it just look soo coool......!!!!! I can't...

This s45 mobile phone by Siemens is great value for money. I for one have been in the NOKIA club for years now. I think people are afraid of changing from Nokia phone because everyone tells them they are easy to use. I got used to this phone within minutes-very similar software to Nokia.
This phone is smart stylish and beats the 8310 hands down.
All this thing about image! The phone is silver with amber/orange backlite and keys.
Great phone buy one! (read more)
