I am using this phone for 7 months now(black edition) and it is great-design and funcionality as well great quality of sound...I have USEFULL ADVICE for all users of cf62 who have problems with battery life/turning off..I had the same problem and it can be solved by simply putting a bit of paper or carton betwen baterry and sim card(mobile was turnig off by it self because of
lose sim card that was losing contact)..once you do that your phone will work perfectly and without any problem what so ever..it is great phone, durable and reliable...also it has grat design for cheap price...
I have had this phone for around 7 months, its a good phone but i wouldn't recomend anyone buying it because it urns itself off. i have tried everything to try and stop it but it hasn't work.
After my ME45 was stolen I wanted something cheap. Phones are consumer products, not jewellery.
Last friday my Siemens died. I had it for about a year. The last few weeks my CF62 started to freak. Shut down with no reason, freezes, ... In an angry mood I smacked in on the table and the screen broke.
All in all my cheapest Siemens and a bit of a dissapointement. Software is very slow, and build quality can't touch the older and more expensive Siemens. Paint chips way too easily. But I still like the design, I love the flat-style keyboard. Types very easy!
My CF62 is now replaced with the ME75
I bought my CF62 for less than 20 quid, and I use it with pay as you go "orange".
I consider myself a casual user who didn't want to spend a lot on mobile technology, and the CF62 is eminently suitable for this. I have just bought a 850mAh replacement battery off EBay for less than 4 quid (including P&P)not that I needed to, but because of all the negative hype about this phone.
If your life or your business depends on having a state of the art mobile, then pay what you consider appropriate.
I consider the CF62 to be amazing value for money.
To all the people who think that 3 minutes is too long to run a java game, may I make a suggestion ---- GET A F***ING LIFE.
PS I don't work for siemens
Thought it was decent enough for its time, however changed my mind after just 6 months the peice of crap doesnt charge anymore, battery sits on minimal constantly, WITH everything disabled. Just dont bother, there are better deals out there for less money.
Never goin to buy another siemens after having this one. turns itself off since the day i got it. now whenever i connect it to the charger it just shuts off. not worth the hassle.
Purchased this phone from T-mobile. Just like many other people here say, the phone just shuts off by it's self. Unfortunatly it started doing this right when the warranty expired. Has to pay $100 and commit to 1 yr service for Motorola V360.
The only thing i like in this phone is the design, nothing else than this.The batteries are lasting only one day without talking, it turns off by its own, and it is very very slow when opening applications.I have it for 4 months and im already lookig for a new phone.Siemens never more.
Hey, the phone is cool but the only problem is the ringiing tones are not much.
but i luv the phone. One thing i want to tell the siemens companyu is they should improve on their products so that they canget the best.
The phone is not the greatest phone it tuens off when ever it wants. If I new all the problem i want noy have buy it not great
I just bought one from orange.co.uk before I read any reviews. I wondered why it was so cheap @ £19.99 ! O well if it's no good it will end up on ebay.
hey guys, i unfortunately had a siemens cf72 it was so problematic it would turn off by its own all the time, many of the same kind here in russia had the same problem, now i never buy siemens.
thx to da guy that posted this on this day >>>> 2005-11-18 22:33 Mtr7 .... Dominic .... da piece of paper folded into little square put it in between battery n sim card my CF62 dont shut Noooooooooooo more on its own it was gettin to a point where i just wanted to get hammer n pondt it to bits.....all n all love da features of my CF62
In just 5 months my Cf62 Black acquired a lot of problems. Freezes, turn off by itself, and the silver paint started to peel. Buy another cell
Ihave an cf62 the main proplem is freezing
but its ok while most gsm mobils has its own
proplems....ihave an idea to new function
that is akey on the pad i can regester
a message on it or have one from records
we and siemens are partners in a dream we can called it perfection....
You seimens CF62 is not good at all the battery is not good, it switch off anytime it likes and it freezes anytime you haveto do something about it beause is give us and then cousing financial lost to our pocket, we can purchase a phone and then three months time it damage and buy new one. we can do that.
WORSE stand by time ever. does somebody know if there is a better batery for this model?
i'm very like my cf62, unfortunately my lcd is broke so i want to know where i can get the new lcd cf62, please inform me, thank and best regards
The batery has no problem at all think about other fones are equiped whit 720-800mA Lithium Ion Batery and the Siemens cf62 has a 600mA Batery that is the problem and the other fones have no dynamic light , 2 displays...or somting like that, but if you by a 800mA batey in Europe it has a low price 10Euro and the standby time gets double up to 5 days...normaly if you customize the fone to save energy(600mA standard batery) the standby time is about 3 days whit a minimum of 5 cals /(10min.)/day,and whit a display light to 50%(the external display is not turned off!)
Ex:Nokia fones whit standard batery(720-800mA) hawe a standby time up to 5-7 days the Sony Ericson whit LI-Ion-Polymer! batery standby time 4-5 days ,Siemens fones up to 5 days.(my personal experience Nokia 6610i,Sony Ericson T68i,Siemens M35,A50,CF62)
Now think about the diference betwean a 600mA batery and a 800mA batery!
