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!
My maid has this phone and when she is ironing my clothes i'm playing on her phone ...it's very very nice ..i have a samsung e530 and it's better but i like that siemens too
this phone sucks-the battery is the main faible point -12 hours in stand by - most of them have this problem
yes you can instal java games , ringtones , pictures whit the USB cable and you can navigate the internet whit the GPRS modem.I have a Serial cable and it works fine.
I buy this fone about 1 week and i love it..the batery stand by 3-4 days(...by all the siemens fone is the same 3 to 5 days standby time)looks god ...is a litle bit slow but in general is ok , the dynamic lights are great.
My previous phone was a simple, easy to use, easy to see Samsung SGHr225 (thru T-mobile). The battery died and I went my local mall's T-m center. I allowed myself to be talked into taking this phone and renewing my T-mobile contract for 1 yr. I HATE THIS PHONE! I can't see anything on the screen if I'm outside, the little backlit letters/no's on the keypad are hardly visible in anything but complete darkness, the address book takes forever to load! And I was told by the gentleman when I returned that all the phones are like that. What a piece of crap! I just ordered a new battery for my old phone from a Web site -- something I should have done in the first place. In order to get a more simple "free" phone from T-mobile, I would have to renew for ANOTHER 2 YEARS. Come July, I'm done with T-mobile, as well!
As a T-Mobile customer I purchased 2 CF62T's in Jan '05. By March began having cutoff & shutting off problems. Thought it might be improper charging time, but problems kept on intermittently. Finally contacted T-Mobile & they replaced the phone, but not battery. Same scenario but now it's Aug when I tell T-Mobile it must be the battery; they tells me the battery is an accessory w/6-mo only warranty & ref me to Siemens, who tell me T-Mobile contracted for the CF62T's & assumed full responsibility for the phone & battery. T-Mobile's solution: buy a new battery for $100, or reup for 2 yrs as their hog-tied monkey. Not surprisingly, T-Mobile Cust service is like a vacuum; their young supervisors don't know cust service from diaper rash & think the cust has not right to question the company's svc policies (a Bush syndrome). This no doubt is a common market failure among most cellular svc providers: a reflection of avid greed & lousy service in an expanding market. The customer beware! I rate T-Mobile a 2 out of 10.
The siemens fones are not fabricted by the German Siemens company animore that is the problem!....Benq has buy the Siemens Mobile company and fabrictaes anothe "under licens Siemens Fone" that is the problem by siemens fones...whit soft and batery they canot hit the high standards of german precison....my opinion
My husband & I have the CF62T - and although we love the phone, we've had trouble with it shutting itself off for no reason (during conversations or just because)- -at first we were told by T-Mobile that it was a "software" issue and they replaced the phones... but now the "new" phones are doing the same thing. We are now forced to either "deal with it" or upgrade to a new phone & sign a new plan...
this phone is amazing .. the features are incredible .. the battery lasts longer than I ever wanted ... the dynamic lights are great , so in coclusion it's a great phone ,, it's worth buying it !!!

Hi about this fone ... the look is nice , the price is god and the soft+batery is a crap!I would recomend a Motorola V180,V171 or a Samsung x460 the Siemens CV65(whit camera)is also good...the price is the same +/- 20$ ...I live in Romania and the mobile prices are the same!
Kind Regards Mikey
Hi can some1 give me advice. I've heard alot of comments about this phone (good and bad) and was wondering if it's worth me bothering 2 get it. I mean the looks are brill but from what i've heard the performance is crap. I live in Turkey (but i'm english) and here the mobile prices are extremely expensive compared to england. so i'm really curious. if ne1 can recommend it 2 me, plz do. Or if anyone can recommend a phone thats similar 2 this (cheap, RELIABLE & without a camera)
the best phone...ever, it's stileish, compact,...the battery doesen't last loong but it makes a good impresion on everybody.and it has very interesting fitures!
This phone is one of the worst. I've been using it making calls and batery just fails quickly.
It it is the first cell phone that peels!!
Yes, it loses its painting (black model)!!!
Battery lasts ..... less than 24 hours!!
Siemens service says turn off this and that and it will last longer. Yeah! 48 hours!
Best thing to do, don´t buy! in case you´ve already done it, get rid of it.
beware taking the phone back to the masters settings whipes out not only ur phone setting but the entire phone memory. i'm using mine now without logos,screen ,savers ring tones etc
