i have read all the post about this phone , one or two praise this phone the rest.... ,anyway... i have it now ,slowest phone i ever seen ,nice menu ,good applications , very good camera , the sound is good(loud and of quality )but in calls its rather slow ,about battery ...3 days maximum ,data cable transfer its slow compared to other phones,but what to ask from its rather cheap compared to V3x , so i am pleased with it
first of all, there is no driver for the cable, and a decent Win XP SP2 wil want to install it as a modem (damnest thing ever) but the driver from a siemens M55 or later ORIGINAL data cable will work just fine. indeed the mp3-s from bluetooth aren't recognised, but this only happened to me when i took mp-3-s from another phone. from the PC they work just fine. the biggest problem of siemens and later benq-siemens is that the damned things require WAP to be able to send or recieve MMS. and in my country most cell phone carriers have ceased to offer WAP services altogether.
in the end it's an annoying phone but with some TLC it can become acceptable. this is true for me. i don't know what others think, but since i got it i'll make the best of it
Don't buy this or any other BenQ-Siemens phone. The company has gone into liquidation which means you won't get any support from them if anything goes wrong. My partner and I bought one each of these phones, which I thought were pretty good... One went wrong, the second went wrong, and is now being repaired again, but not through BenQ as they've closed their service centres. And on the other you can't use half the facilities like MMS and email as there's no BenQ Customer Service line to help set the phone up properly. Best advice - steer clear of this and any other BenQ phone!

search for Brew Mobile Commander, download it and connect your EF81 with the BMC running and install any Java apps with it.
