Bought one for 2 euros from a flea market. When i got home i hooked it up to a charger and it started up right away but it was locked on a foreign network. Swapped the mainboard from another one that i had dismantled in one of my junk boxes and it works great!
Sunny, 25 Jul 2008I used like phone for 1.5 year about 4 years ago....even after I stopped using it I still kept... morereplacement batteries are still available for the SL55 - I got one earlier last year. Design is a little different to the Siemens but the phone will still work - have mine for over 5 years now and only on the 2nd battery - despite no camera its the best phone ever made
I consider this phone to be my all-time favorite even though technology has advanced rapidly through the years thus rendering it, sadly, obsolete... I just love its tiny size and its excellent features! Who said Siemens mobile phones were worth nothing?

Its Over 5 Years old, is Still works the Same as it did then, Great Quality Mobile, Well Built, Good Design, & Cute, So it has'nt got the Features of a Modern Phone, but Aleast its Durable & Will Last a Very Long time.
What!! Released in 2003!! No way. I saw this on a new billboard!! The same one!! I'm serious!! Is my area getting old stuff??
PS: Don't bother to reply. This is'nt a question
it's marvellous, a model to be proud of,
i keep on replacing screen and belt,easy to handle in my pocket, super star during its time.
i got my sl55 last january 2005 and up to now i'm still using it...
it's a very user friendly phone and cute as can see...
1 of my friends once thought that it was my mouse...coz my phone is on my table near to my pc...hehehehe
Great phone, advanced technology for its time. I'm using it for more than 3 years, some keys r not responding from time to time, but i'm still using it.
When i got the SL75, i had nothing but trouble. So i went back to my SL55.
Its really a shame that Siemens had sold the mobile section to BenQ. Now there is no maintinance or support for thier previous models.
i remember i had it for 1 yr and few months. one day during winter, it just stopped working. i think it had battery issues or program issues or maybe it's too cold for the phone to work. I still love that phone very much. it upset me when i called for siemens help support, they cannot help me either. they told me get a new phone. After 1 yr, no warranty. it's kinda sux.
I used like phone for 1.5 year about 4 years ago....even after I stopped using it I still kept it because it's such a cool little phone. By the way, the reason I stopped using it it's because it was left it in my jeans and it went through a wash cycle plus 30 minutes in the dryer (because it's so small, it's easy to forget). And you know what happened? I air-dried it and it worked for another 2 weeks before it stopped accepting charge and eventually the battery died. This is what I called incredible reliability.
This was my first phone. I fell in love with it when I saw it in TV. But I used it for 2 months because i saw a new Nokia phone. It was too small and I have a big hand.Anyways I loved it. But it does not have a built in camera.That's not really good. I still looks great and i miss is very much.
had this phone for less than a year..
something went wrong, people here have no idea how to fix it..
but it was my smallest phone..
Had this phone for 6 years now dropped and bashed more times than I care to think of. Have since tried to convert to a newer model but I always go back to this one. It does exactly what a phone should do; ring & text, no more no less. Still looks as modern as the day it was released. I could happily use this phone for the rest of my life.
