Let me sum it up for all those who are interested in buying this piece of junk. Pls explore your options. Siemens has a bad rep to begin with and the C65 is one of the better of the batch. Overall the phone still has faults. I work for a cell company and they tell us to sell these phones without notifying the consumer about the defects. Take my word for it, go with NOKIA or MOTOROLA if you want quality.
oh yea, u wanna play games and download games ects; it's quite slow a slug could pass the lenght of the phone. The games that are provided on the phone is pretty pathetic. Again, slow performance, so not worth the $$. I just deleted all mine.
Got the phone 2 weeks ago from Fido(BC). New version 12v. So far, not 2 many problems; just that when I have taken and deleted several pics at 1 time, the phone freezes. So, have to take battery out 2 reset.
Wut's up with the MMS? Type 2 letters and I'm over the limit!?!
Can't connect to net even if I cheked the GPRS box.
Hard time usin handsfree if it's around fairly noisy surrondings, pretty good if there's silence as it's quite loud & clear.
Pics are decent but slight blurriness. Can't expect much since it's a cam phone.
Display is alrite only when it's fairly dark out/shady area. Under bright sun, it's not possible to see anything.
I think they should have an illumination switch to turn on/off if one uses the phone constantly. I swear that eats up batteries so fast, it's not funny!
*if U have illumation & contrast @ low settings, it should save the batteries some what*
Phone is nice and sturdy, not 2 small that I might lose it or something. Buttons are perfect. Don't have to squint to find the numbers. Call/On buttons could be a bit bigger. Placement of numbers ects, is good so is joystick handling.
Reception is pretty clear depending on your surrondings. Like on a bus, sometimes not possible to hear your caller. Sometimes callers says I break up so either my fingers are in the way of the antennae or something.
For the price I got it, signin on 2yr ~$85 CAD is pretty good deal.
for those who would like to see how the pics would come out, check out this link :
i used this phone for 2 days and realise that everything is good, camera with 3X zoom, good pics taken with same as 6230. But sometimes will keep waiting, will just press No to resume. Is a small bug. Change ringtones is easy. comes with normal call, group call, and SIM card. Therefore would say def worth the price with such a power phone. good buy
Im getting this phone and i wondered has it got more than 10 ringtones and a video capture on it and is it better than a 3510i
I have a few problems with siemens c65
1)Don't know how and where to change the ringtone to the ringtone that i want.
2)When i want to save my friend's phone number,cannot save,it says PIN2 block.
find that it is nt so user-friendly
Can anyone unlock this device

Something similar happened to my boyfriend with the siemens C65 model. He got another phone in exchange for that one and said it would always freeze. Not to mention the sound problems it has on the shut off melody tune.
I have a Siemens C65 which I bought about 20 days ago. It started malfunctioning about 2 weeks after I bought it. The phone would freeze while in operation and I would have to wait until the battery died (a few hrs later) before It would snap out of the frozen state and restart again. I tried to return it to the FIDO locations in BC and they put me on a 2 week waiting period. I got the run around from FIDO's cust service and Kiosk's until I finally went in to the fourth FIDO location and they had just ONE phone left. MY LUCKY DAY!! They exchanged the phone for me for another refurbished one. I was pissed because the entire phone series was on recall for malfunctioning to begin with. Could anybody here help me and tell me why should the consumer suffer if the phone is faulty to begin with???
