Buy the nokia5140i i'm sure thats it. Ya can pour water over it it has a light too and loud ringers and a camera wiv video capture and infrared file share. easy to use and real small.no where as decent as siemens design n straight forward functioning but siemens care more about the end user. Thats why they gave up production as phones are ridiculously multifunctional and baffling now in 2012. Next we ll be steering our cars on them n tracking our childrens location! Which is against the... (read more)

The M35i has been the best phone I have ever purchased. When it was stolen I purchased a Nokia 5500 sport which was not water resistant at all as the keypad had already peeled off. Is there any such phone available on the market. I have heard about Benq M7 phone? (read more)

This was the first phone I had until it got broken, though a 5 year warranty I took out paid off and siemens repaired the phone even though I had it 4 years, it was stolen about 2 years ago now, I've tried many other phones since, many Nokia yucky, very breakable and unreliable, a Sagem myx-2 which was just too small, and a Moto a835 and a1000 which were just too gimmicky, maybe the a1000 could be of some use to a business user
But as an everyday phone I still preferred the m35 so I scoured... (read more)

The battery on the Siemens M35 is always running out! It comes with a 550maH nicad, replace it with a £15 1350maH Lithium-Ion battery from Eurobatteries instead for super-duper battery life and you can also use the old one as backup.
As a phone to talk with it can't be beat - strong, reliable, you can drop it and it doesn't smash into a thousand bits of plastic and it doesn't feel like it came out of a Kinder Egg or have dubious styling.
A current bargin as far as armoured mobiles go. (read more)

I was conned into buying this Siemens M35 mobile phone by an item of misleading junk mail by Itineris (AKA Orange). I sent away for it and when it arrived I was so disgusted with it I wrote asking for my money back. They refused, pointing out the small print! I hated this phone from the first day. It was an absolute nightmare and although I tried I was never able to get used to it, then one day, shortly after the guarantee had run out, it gave up the ghost. (read more)

I found that the Siemens M35 is an easy and managable phone. It is a good size and shape and can fit into your bag or pocket easily. However there isn't a wide choice of ringtones, and it is hard to find accessories. (read more)

This is a great phone let down by one little problem: poor battery life. While my five year old Nokia still lasts a week between recharges, my M35 barely lasts 12 hours. And that is just on standby. The supplied battery is a joke. I strongly recommend replacing it with a Li battery.
On the plus side, the M35 is otherwise a great phone. My phone is used in the field and it has survived knocks that would have killed a Nokia.

This phone is strong, i bought it second hand with quite a few knocks, scratches etc. The previous owner once cleaned it in white spirit....the phone survived all this and is still going strong. It's a VERY good phone, will last you a life time and also looks good. The only bad thing i can say is the vibrate is too weak, so weak in fact it's pointless. Also reception aint too brilliant.

Very solid :I dropped this phone few times and it's working like the first day. Good reception: i compared once with some Nokia's of some friends and they didn't have signal but I did. Frankly, I was surprised because I knew Nokia as a good phone maker. I have the phone from more than 2 years and until now only 3 or 4 times has some strange behaviours (I guess some minor software bugs).Fortunately those behaviours were temporary.

Im not a fan of mobile phones in the first place , I do however expect them to work. (At least as well as the Telstra shop said they would) It has many problems to do with the powering of the phone 1. It shows the battery charge increasing with use (No it is not connected to mains power.) 2.even though the battery power in increasing, it turns off during most calls. 3. It also prone to over heating I dont know if this causes 1. and 2. Don't buy it ! The name should be warning enough. Aso... (read more)

1st thing to do when getting this Siemens M35 mobile phone is to get rid of the standard battery and buy a Lithium ion battery. Fixes all battery/battery meter issues.
The SMS message bank is too small. I always have to be deleting old messages to make space for new. The received SMS messages are not keeped in order so sometimes I have to read all of them to find the last one that was received. I can't have a seperate car charger, and hands free kit plugged in at the same time as they use... (read more)

Overall, this Siemens M35i is a very good phone. It is very reliable as the plastic covers protect it against dust and water. It has many features and no bugs. I also like its menu, especially the shortcut functions that are available. However, the original phone's Nickel battery has a somewhat poor performance. Luckily, the S35i's Li-Ion is compatible with M35i, so I bought it. (read more)

Well, this phone is rather old and for the generic type of person who wants a mobile phone to phone and recieve calls and sens SMS it would be quite good (however take care of that battery life!) However it lacks a lot when compared to the 3310 (it was launched in that same period).

I have had my Siemens M35 mobile phone since March 2002. Before I bought it I had had a Nokia 3210 for 2 years which endured a number of falls. I had missed out on the vibrator & organiser, I found these features in such a small, compact, fine & dandy siemens M35 gadget. Being an ardent user of SMS feature I noted that editing of long text was kind of slowed as the phone's T9 does not 'remember' new words used earlier. The rubber at the back keeps the phone from sliding off bevelled surfaces... (read more)

I initially liked this Siemens M35 mobile phone - it looks pretty good and is supposedly shock and splash resistant. But I would have thought that for a mobile phone a decent battery life is a prerequisite...

Even when at home it is a nuisance, as it gives you approximately five seconds' audio warning to get to a charger to keep... (read more)

The Siemens M35 mobile phone, in my opinion, is terrible. As you may see above there are more bad points than good points. Don't buy this phone, it's incredibly dull, will cramp your style, and is just a nightmare to use. The buttons are really hard to press so sending a text becomes a bit of a task. The menu's are too complicated and really it's just very user unfriendly. This phone was obviously designed for builders as it's water and shock resistant, but the builders would have to be very...

The M35 from Siemens is a great little phone in general, costing only £69. This is approximately half what the similar sized and specced Nokia 3310 costs!
Menus are generally fairly easy once you are used to them but I find the lack of a proper daily alarm clock annoying and the existing alarm a right pain to use. Games, logo and ringtone provision a bit dismal but this doesn't worry me too much because i'm older than 13 years!

I've had my Siemens M35 phone for about 6 months and the menu system continues to annoy me. It's just not logical - requiring far too many button-presses in most cases. Things are hidden away in strange places. Nokia have got the best menu system easily, in my opinion. I had an Ericsson for a while and the menus on that were pretty bad too. Maybe the newer models are better?

Well, this phone is something special.

It has features which will satisfy teenagers and younger users as well; games, predictive text input, et cetera. The phone's biggest feature is its extra toughness, however. It should be able to withstand daily wear and tear without problems: rain, dropping it,... (read more)
