1. The volume control is easily accessible during a call by pressing the 4-way key upwards.
2. Ring tones can easily be
changed via the "Ring Tones" menue item (simply press "menue" and
select the icon with the bell (or press 6))
3. If you have probs
using the "desktop style menue" check whether your profile is set
to "Big letters" and if so deselect it (simply press "menue"-9-2,
scroll down and deselect "big lettters").
However, I am affraid that with the newer generation mobiles you
have to get used to "desktop style menues".
Siemens UI is clearly different from Nokias which again is different from Samsungs or Motorolas ... This, however, doesn't imply that it is less intuitive. If you switch to another producer you always have to
adjust! I personally rank Nokia's and Siemens UI equally (and both
are not on top!).
IS a beautifull phone and very good, batery 3 days , good antena , menu very good, everything is good , design impresionant , colors good, melody and vibrating very good , if he have camera it was wonderfull
but he have an extern one
Tony , you forgot to mention about reception.
Reception on this phone is horrible
(I'm wondering what type of antenna is inside of this phone?)
This is a really great phone! sleek and very easy to use. Honestly, the phone is a great buy unless u are looking for some high tech one. A phone is a phone and this is a GREAT phone!
Well, this morning I got so sick of this stupid phone (can't even change the ring tone in the menue), that I decided to wash it with a warm water before I returned it to God Damned Staples store (in New York).
What a surprise happened after this experiment. This junk phone would turn on for few seconds only and then automatically would shut down. In addition, ones you put the battery in, eventhough the phone is turned off, it would start constant vibration
(very smart piece of junk phone).
Have fun people. Always wash your junk phone before returning it to the store.
I BOUGHT THIS PHONE 3 HOURS AGO!
TOO BAD I didn't read reviews of this phone first on GSMARENA.COM Horrible as a phone! (only great artistic design - but who needs this b.s.?)
-Clear sound (that's all!)
-horrible STN 65k Screen
-On top of horrible screen stupid desktop type of menu
-The menu is too complicated as well! (takes 4 to 5 enttries just to switch some very basic phone fetures. Also very hard to find something in this menu, because it is not organized properly ( Samsung and Nokia have the easiest menus.
-No volume control not only on the side of the phone but also imposible to find it in the menu!
I have no slightest idea how brilliant people as Germans have created this phone model. Bad work-Siemens! Will never buy Siemens again, unless I can check the phone before buying! I hope the new Siemens phones have better screen and normal menu.
Wake up man.... this phone is great... Support wav file for ringtone... currently using SX1,SL45i,C35 and this phone CF62 ... Siemens Fans here....
I got mine yesterday and first impressions are very good. I bought this phone because I lost mine ME45 :'( (I keep on loosing phones)
- nice design
- good keyboard
- dynamic lights are usefull
- a bit plasticky
- loading images and games is slow
Will see how this holds up in the next months
this is a quite nice phone with an atractive design.i've just bought it and very happy to have it.only problem is the battery lasts too short.but it is a perfect thing for this price
Own the CF62 (not CF62T !) now for 3 months.Overall I would rate it a good phone with an excellent price/performance ratio. However,this rating crucially depends on what you want to use your phone for. Sometimes the CF62 can be quite slow and it is definitely not made for gaming (loading games can take ages). The pros are: small size, good reception, holds connections better than others, excellent speaking quality, good (in this price category!) organizer and calendar functionality, dynamic memory of about 1.9MB, quick recharging, helpful 2nd display, pressing the * key longer allows to switch off all sounds or change to one beep as ring tone. The cons: slow with Java applc., horrible polyphonic ring tones (luckily it also offers three traditional ones) and ugly wallpapers, flat buttons, bad illumination of key pad, no keys on cover, different profiles cannot have different ring tones, changing profile needs too many menu steps, average battery life, sloppy cover at the back. I even found a “hidden” function in mine: via the voice command setting you can access the otherwise not available dictaphone (up to approx. 9 Min!) (however, there is a bug: If you try to delete a saved message on the dictaphone you have to confirm by pressing the On/Off button instead of “OK”) . Would recommend phone to someone who is looking for an affordable, small, light, reliable and basic clamshell in a stylish design.
Just bought it and am finding that it isn't too user friendly. Says it has voice activated functions, what? Besides recording there is nothing than you can do such a voice dial. I like the way the phone looks, but I am disappointed in the features and manual usability.
after i see those commentarry,really i don`t
want to buy this phone...but i really like it!!!
i would like to say that this phone is really not bad but the only thing is that it turns off by itself sometimes. so its pretty troublesome when u are expecting a call as u have to keep checking to see whether its still on. Is there a soulution to this problem?
I love the phone with the exception that the battery doesn't last long, it almost dies at the end of the day without much talking just on stand by. Any suggestions?
I love this phone very much because it is a good one.it's cheep and it has style.
I want to ask some owner of this phone. It writes on this site that you can buy and put a camera. Can you buy and put a new camera becouse I don't know what is Optional digital camera ? Is that you can ADD a cammera ... ? I see you can clean the battery and make him gooder and thanks a lot becouse I loved this phone and I'll buy it ! In my country is 100 EURO ! This is very cheap price for phone like this and with a lot of specifications :) like Java, MMS, EMS ... How many days you can use it, when you talk and when you don't talk. Also when you talk one and twice a day !?
Becouse I've seen a bad problem 600 MAH very small battery !? I think I will use it only 3-4 days and I must generate it !
If one owner of this phone tell me the hole information I will be very happy ...
ALSO Is this Silver super cool picture is the same like in the advertisement pic ?
Becouse many times the advertisment lies you to buy it ... :)
I had the same problem but there is a solution to it. You just have to clear the sticks on the battery and in the phone with the sand paper and everything will work fine.
Well, I initially purchased this phone over the telephone with a T-Mobile USA representative, (obviously before I found about gsmarena.com) and this was a stupid mistake on my part. I sent back my first phone because it turned itself off. I got a second one as an exchange with T-Mobile, and the exact same thing happened. So, T-Mobile sent me the same phone again, and now it loses reception, forcing me to remove the battery and reboot, as well as freeze up to the point of removing the battery to reboot. Aesthetically, this phone is a work of art, but Siemens really should stick to other forms of technology, because I am most displeased with this phone. I'm looking to switch to a Nokia 6800 as soon as I can.
I think its a cool phone..but to bad there is no Camera with it..otherise i really like it.
