My Siemens S40 mobile phone's inbox and outbox is not available. Some feautures or functions are not available. Maybe hidden but I can not find it in the manual. Though I have set the ringing tone and message tone when someone calls me there's no sound coming out from the phone. (read more)

if you're used to phones with a user-friendly menu, like nokia, then i suggest you skip this phone. the Siemens S40 is purely a business phone, so no games here. this phone is so complex yet stylish. it takes time to get used to it. the siemens s40 has many bugs but siemens came up with a fix for it so if ur phone is anything lower than a ver. 7.0 then expect to have problems with your phone.
so far my experience with this phone is ok, although the first week i was constanly playing with it... (read more)

Well i bought my s40 a year ago and i expected a great phone. But after one month of use it began to freeze. the internal clock stopped and when i turned it off and on again the battery was suddenly empty like its been highly stressed by the phone. but there are a few things that despite all the errors makes the phone pretty practical, for example the dictating machine and the 3 color display. (Black, weak green and weak blue)
I think the phone doe's it's job when it's working. and thats... (read more)

General feelings about this Siemens s40 phone - what a bag of dog doo doo. I can't find any ring tones that are downloadable or that can be sent to the phone!! The composer is way over the top and you need to be mozart to us it! (read more)

The Siemens s40 mobile phone is great. Tri-Band, nothing special if you're not a business man. I've never had to call outside the country. I'm guessing the high price I paid for the phone was because it was Tri-Band and I didn't even need it. If you're not going to travel often, get a different phone. The battery life isn't long either. You have to turn the blue backlighting off so the phone can last 2 days. With the blue back light on the phone will last about a day and that's if you don't... (read more)

Actually the Siemens s40 mobile phone is not a Siemens original product, it is a Bosch phone but then brought out by Siemens as their own phone product. This website give a reference: http://www.cellular.co.za/bosch_1886_wap.htm
I have siemens c30 and then get s40. Both are products of Bosch. S40 is a more serious and powerful phone than c30 (like a basic phone but also cool looks), u would feel that the engineer that design the phone has the goal to produce a powerful weapon phone. It is... (read more)

i bought this mobile phone 'cos it looks nice (stainless steel casing, clear blue backing, blue backlit screen, blue glowing buttons) and it's a triple band phone. feature wise it's pretty standard, no real innovation or obvious disadvantages.
my beef with this phone is the unstable software. after about 3 months of (minimal) use, things started falling apart (software wise). flashing screen, unable to access address book/sim card and eventually refused to turn on all together. also, the...

I bought this Siemens S40 mobile phone nearly a week ago and already i will have to send it back. I read reviews before i bought it and was warned of the software problems that some people encountered. Not all people had problems so i decided to try it. This would be a great phone if only it worked.
I love the dictaphone and the Infrared link and the overall look of the phone is great but after one day it started to freeze. I couldn't enter a lot of the menu and i couldn't even turn the... (read more)

Loses ringing capability so I don't hear it rings.
I've had various cell phones over the last 9 years (!) but I've never encountered such a problems before.
The phone should be recalled from the USA market ASAP.

I've had various cell phones over the last 9 years and I've never encountered such problems before as with this Siemens s40. It loses its "ringing" capability and its reception. It suddenly doesn't work and the only way to fix it is by removing the battery and the card, etc'.
I had my cell phones changed once already but the same problems persists.
It should be recalled and removed promptly from the USA market. (read more)

First, a gripe: I've read many a bad review about the Siemens s40 mobile phone and I'm not entirely sure as to how Siemens could have got things so wrong. There have been umpteen software revisions made (I believe it is currently on the ninth) and there are still problems which apparently stem from the file system used on the phone. I won't go into the details of the matter, but as soon as one problem occurs, the problem snowballs until the user has to 'reset the phone' thus discarding all... (read more)

I like this Siemens s40 mobile phone - it's quality is better than my Nokia 8290 (82xx series). It has lots of memory and the features are very good. It was a bit pricey, but it can handle high-speed data (new here in the States) and has a nice set of features. It was much better than the alternative from my carrier (an Ericcson tri-band phone).

I am just an average person who needs a cellphone to make calls. And for that the Siemens S40 mobile phone is wonderful. The reception is crystal clear and since I don't talk about my phone a lot, I have yet to experience any problem with reception. Most of my reception problems have to do with my wireless provider. Sometimes a call will fail, but again that has more to do with my provider than the phone. It's a grown-up phone for people who don't really care about changeable face plates and... (read more)
