I bought this phone a year ago and have had similar problems. The phone swithces off for no reason, i have had my numbers deleted for simply having too many sms's come in while im out surfing and thats not fun- finding all those 200 numbers again.
The battery runs out within 12 hours of recharging too.
One probelm is where do i find better games to download? Also im up to level 53 on Wappo
and i dont think this level is doable at all.
Does anyone know how to get past this level?
the siemens cf62 looks quite sleek and posh with its cool flashing lights and so on. for a plain text and ring phone it is pretty good for it doesnt have have a camera or bluetooth or anything like that!
i have had many problems with it such as not charging or breaking down.the phone is simple to use with large icons and blue lights to let you when a you have recieved something or there is a network problem. the phone is mostly for left handers but easy for right handers.there is a out side display which is good it shows the time battery and the signal and if you have had a missied call or message. a good thing about the phone is the internet and also the good screen display. the clamshell design is good with the small loop handle at the top and the quite large keys which are flat the paint on the phone scrapes easy. in the sun the screen display is hard to make out. because the whole of the front of the phone is glass not just the actual screen it scatches easy. overall the phone is quite good and you can get it cheap its not bad just dont expect miracles and is for users who dont use their phone that much because it can get boring!!!
wow i shouldnt even buy the phone now after the complaints i heard i dont even want the fone now step ya game up siemens plant holla at ya boy all you haters step ya game up cause its motivation.
thanx for the solutions but about the one where you place a piece of paper to the back of the phone
my question is if the piece of paper should just cover the sim card or the majority of the back
This fone is pathetic I bought it a year ago, and bcuz of the incredubly lame fatures u'll sooon get bored with it. It also has a tendency to shut off for no reason. Looks good but it sucks basically
Its really a nice phone.I just bought it last week,and i can not store names on my phone book.Also I dont understand most of the functions,pls is there any way i can get a more simplified manual? Kind regards
This is a third class mobile set. Because of it's bad quality color. I have bought this set only 1 month ago, but in this time, the body color is going to be damaged. I think siemens should imporove its body color qluality.

Does anyone know how could i send to my phone any ringtones or wallpapers.I have a data cable but the computer doesn't recognize the phone.Do i need a soft for that and which one could that be?Could anyone help me in a way or another?
unfortunately for the sake of a low price, good features set i went for CF62. i din't know that it would be so "cheap" that everyone would repent on buying it!
main "features" of this phone, that i haven't seen in any other mobile phone than siemens are:
1) very very short battery life (needs to be re-charged at least twice a day)
2) shut-down problem as stated by almost every user here but mine happens with the use of some functions and like when the battery gets full on charging.
3) too slow (annoying slow!)
4) T9 dictionary don't memorize new words at all
rest of the features have not yet REVEALED on me to burn my more blood!!!
i looked for the latest firmware of this mobile on siemens official website my-siemens.com but didn't find it ... now don't know how to get rid of this phone!
i bought this phone 4months ago. I love it.But how come is restarting it self. it also hang like a computer. what do i do?
I had this phone, until my dog chewed it up.. but i absolutely loved it. It's really small, and lightweight & easy to use. i love the lights :) . i have a new phone now, but i wish i still had this one
Have had the CF62 for about a year now, and was ready to buy something else. I like the phone except for the problem about shuting off by itself at random. Thanks to the perosn that posted the fix for this problem: putting a peice of folded paper between the Sim card and the battery. I did the fix about three weeks ago and it hasn't turned off since. So now I don't have to buy a new phone. Thanks guys!!!
I've had the CF62T for 10 months now & love it! I've never had screen freezing or dropped phone calls like others here complain about. I love the classy unusual looks and especially love the different dynamic light patterns! They always get attention from others when I open the clamshell! I use the phone for only about 3 minutes a day in calls average & download internet news 10 - 20 minutes a day. Keeping the phone on 12-15 hours a day the battery last me 3 or 4 days before I need to recharge it.
It doesn't have a camera, if that is important to you although one is optional. The color display could be bigger & the volume on the speaker phone could be louder, but the phone is packed with useful features and gets the intended job done! The pluses outway the minues in my opinion.
My dad's phone had that battery issue, it would last for only a few hours of normal use, turn off while charging, become hot while being used.. i considered buying a new battery then i read your post, i wasn't sure but i gave it a try and to my surprise, it worked. there was a contact between the battery and metal parts beside the sim, the phone now is normal again.
Thanks for help, now i have a reason to root for Croatia in The World Cup..
well i have this phone at the moment and for about a year now... and it is constantly turning off and freezing...
