Mine has been in use since early 2007 - now a historical sample by all means! Quirky phone prone to random blackouts/freezes/shutdowns, OEM accessories were unavailable/insanely expensive in its time, FW upgrades by Siemens never rolled out. Phone is incompatible w/3rd party accessories - I still haven't found a data cable that works, even with Siemens MPM software (worst useless resource hog of all times) installed on my PC. By now it's shed its rubber parts and lost IR connectivity, while most of other features nevertheless do work. I'm keeping the phone in a holster to keep dust out, using it wor calls, texting and web browsing (sic!) since I can't afford a smartphone. I've bought a NOS original battery on sale (old one lost capacity after some 7 years of constant use). A long-term destruction test, really:)
Bought this phone form snapdeal India. To my astonishment. The phone was in perfect working condition. I am just wondering how this seller managed to preserve this phone for 10 years. Got it for 800 rs.(10 usd).
Bought mine in 2006. Still works with original battery. Battery last about 4 days. I use it now as a backup phone. Rubber parts are falling apart though.

Want to transfer contact info etc to computer for backup. Tried to years ago to buy equipment for this, but it ran on older software than my computer had.
Se that there is IrDA / infrared. Can I use that? What is it good for if not?
Still using Siemens ME75. Has the spesifications for a mobile phone that is needed - and better battery capasity. Bought it 1st of April 1996!
I had this phone running more than 4 years, last year of using battery held for 2 days - no nokia or nowadays sony/ericsson can handle such period with more than 10 hours talk time in a month. One of the best mobiles I ever had.
Agree with all of above. Brand new and it would not even turn on! No wonder Siemens is going under producing crap like this.
