I had this phone last two months of this year (2005) and it has given me a whole lot of problems.first it freezes whenever a try to make a call.IT restarts again and again and finally switches off.secondly the menu key normally gets stuck and unable to move.Lastly i have no cord to download.I have got no phone now and i wish you can send me a different type of the came brand since i like using philips gargets.
i bought this phone last year in Oct. but felt very disappointed with the features it is not having.
this phone is not good at all. i cannot download ringtones/wall papers. there is no data cable provided with the phone, and no other means of getting the print for the photos taken by the camera. the picture quality is also not good.
the battery backup is also not good. need to recharge it everyday.
the joystick is not functioning properly and the phone hangs up sometimes.
the only thing which i found good in this phone are the buttons and a big screen compared to other phones.
if anyone finds a place where i can get the data cable for this phone pls tell me.
This phone is of absolute no use. One big crap designed as a phone. No proper battery backup. No composer. Sometimes, the keys get stuck and there is a serious software problem in the phone. This phone hangs once in a while while switching it on. Please do not buy this phone. You will waste your money. I am trying to get the manufacturer details to bash him.
this phone is so cute! ii like how it looks so cool on the back & the buttons are like a bee hive thing.. -_- got a picture of the actual size of this phone?? cos ii don`t really understand the dimension thing on here.. if anyone does, please send it to me or post it here!!! & is it true that it only stores 1O pictures??
The handbook implies I can turn off the camera shoot sound, yet I can't. Anyone know how to do this?
Damn! these posts are discouraging and im not about to buy anotha phone!! bought this a weekl ago.
pleeeeeeeeeeease help me. i need to download crazy ringtones. the phone doesnt have blueprint or infra and i cant use mms (im in kenya). how on earth do i download music from the net.... and to make things worse the 355 doesnt have a composer....
somebody help. email me. i need to download muisic b4 my head blows. peace
Hi! how can I send e-mail with this phone? And where can I find USB cable?
I am using this phone since last 1 month, but I think that cam is not even close to any nokia cam,,,not too bad, but if you want to activate the gprs please find the settings coz its too complicated to activate the gprs and mms,,,,,can any one tell me the actual settings of gprs in this rubbish complicated phone.

am not really enjoyin d phone pls help me or link me wit a site where i can do down load if dats not possible can i trade it in 4 another thanks
Do not buy this phone, instead go for an n-gage QD. it's way better for a start within a few months of me getting the philips the joystick wore out and does now almost completely broken. the phone itself is quite slow and the only way you can send pics, tones, ect is via a multimedia message wich costs about 30p! thisphone is bollocks and i could go on. i am now getting a n-gage for £80 with a game! it's way better.
ps: you will regret getting the philips.
this fone is crap in 2 days the ok key stoped working i think it went out of place and i have no idea how to open the damn thing. if anyone knows how to open it please can you email me because i cant view anything the fone is done for im thinking i can shift teh key if i open it but i dont know how to . email me at email@example.com and your help will be appriciated

Try the Philips Web site, they have a section where you can register products, and this includes pdf files of manuals etc
hi i bought a philips 355 in italy cecina, but the shop owner doesnt have a manual in english, and it is pretty tough for me to understand the functions in the booklet which is italian. Would you be able to help me with how to go about getting a manual in english, it could be on the internet too. please just help me with this.
I have no other problems and the phone is really handy. Thanks and regards.
I had purchased one Philips 355 Mobile recently, but I was not given the Data Cable and the CD, without which I am unable to take the print outs through my Computer of the snapped photos taken by the said mobile phone. Kindly help me to get rid from this problem. I am staying in Bangalore. Thanx.
Good value for the money (I've got mine on Virgin). To answer a couple of questions
1) Yes you can use it abroad, it's dualband (I've used it in Singapore)
2) To get '+' for addresses, long press the '+' key - it took me a while to find that in the manual.
a very nice phone.
it has a lot of functions and aplications, making it better that a nokia phone. the camera is not bad at all, especially if there is light.
the battery is also pretty good: the stand-by time is about 5 or 6 days. the only thing that bugs me is the memory, but if you take pictures at 128*128 resolution it's ok.
