One more thing:
If your battery does not stand enough - remember to set the brightness.
In the evening I set it to 20%, and in daylight - about 40-50%.
Note that few models in the world have both brightness and contrast settings !!! (constant and traditional disadvantage of Sony Ericcsons)
I had this phone about 2 years ago and I was very satisfied. Yes, still wonder about it's functional cut off. But if you hunger for MMS and Java (downloadable games) - just buy C60 - plus external camera compatibility. All the rest in C60 is the same.
If you want also calendar, organizer, voice dialing, email - buy M55. M55 is the best you can get for it's prise.
Shortly - you get pretty enough for the price.
Now about the battery - I would like to disagree with Geoff. It lasts pretty long:
- if I play the game/setup options for over 1 hour/day it lasts steadily for about 5 days !!;
- if I leave it "in peace" the battery STANDS OVER 7 DAYS, and often 8 !!!
About the # key - sometimes the keyboard unlocks in the pocket - well, but do not place the phone in tight jeans and keep the display/keyboard to the body.
About the WAP - I downloaded much pictures and ringtones (midi) - no problems setting them to a group.
And now about the game. I really loved this phone just because it's color 2D version of Stack Attack !!!
Now I have Siemens CX65 - it has the Stack Attack Advanced - the 3D color version. But I still feel great nostalgy about the 2D colored version - nothing is better! Trust me! As far as I know, c60 has it too.
Finally - I would not prefer Nokia 1100 to a60, but I'd rather get Siemens C60 or M55.
I have had it 4 ages want the LG F2400, but apparently bluetooth don't wurk. Key lock is rubbish, it spent £10 on internet! Takes ages 2 turn on. Waitin 4eva 4 anyfin! No camera, no downlodes, no gud games! No nothin
I am unable to view the screen content(complete blank). so someone help me how to increase the bright/contrast or how to reset it.
it is very nice , and cheap
Hm... i don;t know about othe people, but I am satisfied with this phone... I have it for a year, and no problems ocured. The battery lasts 5-6 days if I don't use it very much (SMS from time to time), and 3-4 days if I play a little. It has the basics, but I really wanted a calendar :(. I will change my phone now because it's getting really old :). I have dropped it too many times in a year, but it doesn't have anything.
This phone is poor for some basic reasons. Its battery life is very poor and the keypad lock is completely ineffective due to it being the # key. It unlocks itself and sent itself 43 email a couple of days ago... ouch the cost! I would advise aagainst this one!
its a crap fone and NOBODY should ever buy it.by the way can u get covers in mandurah W.A. cya
ps remember NEVER get this fone
cya l8a evry1 luv yah mwamwa lucy
i think the name siemens made the a60 look
very bad because of the name
It is a great phone, but I sold mine and bought a Nokia 1100. I hope I made the right choise...The only problems that I have with the A60 is that it doesn't have MMS. You can basicaly download nothing with it. My Phonecode was blocked and I had to call Siemens. They wanted to charge me R75 to give me a new Phonecode. The sollution that I had, was to rather restore my Factory Settings. The only problem was that I couldn't use a phonecode anymore because it was blocked. The Siemens A60 is worth its price.
how do i reset the language to english?
because my A60 was stolen and retuned in a different language
plz tell me
i have this fone and its absoloutly perfect for its price. its low on memory a bit slow but otherwise it is a dream. the wap is good but i dont like the fact that it does not have downloadable games. i sujest a first time buyer should get this fone.
ok phone lots of good features i have got this phone
what i can say to this fone:
the phone is great but it lacks MMS...why didnt the siemens put MMS to it????its a colored phone with no use at all because it has no MMS...it will actually be a more competetive phone if it has a MMS....
since it the nokia dominates the cellphone market here in the philippines,try to build more shops in the phils., major cities like cebu or davao..and where can i download free polytones or pics...i really cant access to the WAP because the globe,smart and sun telecompanies doesnt have the GPRS settings of this phone...if you can satisfy my needs,feel free to email me at email@example.com...thanks!
why does it not have an infrared pot
a nice phone but why is it that the phone has few ringtones.
Can I download games with it? Please, help! When I tried to download a game(compatible with my mob.) it says: HTTP Error: 406 Not Acceptable........
great phone so far, how do i set up my inbox
this is really a an awesome!i jus luv it!though u cant download games!but still one can download animations,wall papers,ringtones.....but the best is d sound .this phone sounds really superb and its great!surfing is also very fast!and moreover its userfriendly!!!!!
if there wud hav been MMS..things wud hav gone xcellent!but still no one can get a color phone with one of the best resolution and sound for a cheaper price like d A60. SIEMENS A60 IS COOOOOL MAN!!!GO FOR IT...CHEAP n BEST!
