I have used the S65 for about three years now - never had any trouble with it until recently when there was a glitch with the file system which made the phone crash when I tried to access the notes.

I was able to reformat the phone and restore the address book using the phone manager software. Only problem is that the backup program doesn't save the T9 (predictive text) dictionary, so you'll need to download a new copy or make your own backup before reformatting.

The camera is absolute rubbish, and the lack of MP3 player a serious oversight, but for a "grown up" who needs a reliable phone and access to data, it's good. Use the cable connection with a PC; the bluetooth connection proved very fragile, and you won't get much done in the short time between failures.

I haven't had to use BenQ support since the takeover, but there is enough info and downloadable stuff on the internet to keep my S65 off the scraphap for a while.

If you can do without a camera or MP3 support, you won't be disappointed.

Siemens S65: Poor camera - totally useless indoors(!), while just more or less usable outdoors. Video capability is a joke - extremely(!) low quality. Very slow software - slow to load or quit, irritatingly slow to react. Hangs up from time to time. Finally, after just 1 year in use, the screen suddenly went white. So it is completely useless piece of junk now, as to repair it might cost you as much as to buy a new, better telephone. My sincere recommendation - avoid it at all cost!
