“if you're used to phones with a user-friendly menu,...”

Written on: 08/10/2003 by faceless (2 reviews written)

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 to… Read Full Review

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 the… Read Full Review

Look, The S40 kicks ass!
I have it
synch with MS Outlook, and my Palm Pilot.
I even DITCHED my Palm Pilot most of the time, because this fas all my calander, and phone entires right here.
The composer is easy for anyone who can use music.
For those that can't read notes, the notes are displayed on the left of the screen.
Much better than Nokia.
Downs: No DATA SMS capabilities with Nokia phones (IE:Ringtones, pictures, address book, calendar)
IRDA lets you BEAM the RTTL ringtone to your phone, FREE.

Written on: 10/09/2002 by Jarom Bartolome. (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 25/08/2002 by chatboy. (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 08/08/2002 by fubo.x. (1 review written)

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 phone… Read Full Review

Entirely agree. Avoid this phone. In the UK, if it's out of warranty Siemens will charge you aboout £30 to upgrade the software to what it should have had when you bought it!

Loses ringing capability so I don't hear it rings.
Freezes.
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 Full Review

I AGREE THAT THE SIEMENS-S40 WAS MADE DEFECTIVE. I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH RECEIVING CALLS, HEARING TONES AND TEXT MESSEGING. ONE SOLUTION THAT I FIGURED OUT WAS BY TAKING OUT THE BATTERY EVERYTIME THE OPERATOR WOULD SPEAK. THAT ONLY SOLTIONIZED ONE OF MY PROBLEMS. I BELIEVE THAT THE SEMENS-S40 WAS MADE WITH DEFECTS.

Written on: 18/06/2002 by Trypanosomiasis. (1 review written)

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 his… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/05/2003

I bought 2 S40 siemens
<br>one for me and one for my girlfriend.
<br>The both of te phones present problems that are
<br>not random !
<br>Both of the phones after some months of use ,
<br>can not visualize at SMS menu the options for SEND , INBOX and OUTBOX , DRAFTS TOO.
<br>So you can not read messages , you can only send them.
<br>My phone has problems with internal memory
<br>After 300 tel. numbers momorized...
<br>with 30% of memory (for numbers) free I can not
<br>add new number because of "memory full" message appears.
<br>I try to remove all the numbers from the phone
<br>but after that (the memo was EMPTY)
<br>there is still no possibility to add any number on the phone.
<br>I tried to copy one by one (there is no option to
<br>download the TEL MEMO on the sim memory) on the sim card
<br>but after that process about 70% of the entries
<br>are unusable. I can read the name of the entry but can not make call for that , can not edit , or delete - I remember that the last described entries are already on the sim card...
<br>ANother problem that I saw
<br>is that at low temperatures
<br>under 0 degrees celsium
<br>the Phone is too slow to browse menus and to run commands
<br>and some times turn off without a request.
<br>And that is valid for the couple of phones I describe.
<br>Best Regards
<br>Martin

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)… Read Full Review

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 Full Review
