this fone is crap
the battery only lasts one day
and it freezes all the time
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...
The CF62 has a lot of features but the sound quality is very poor.. it gets switched off frequently and gets stuck occasionally..
the range is also poor compared to other phones..
the display is too good..GPRS also very good
it is a nice looking phone but the battery life is too short and the memory is too small.
This phone is a piece of junk. I'm on my 4th one right now 2nd battery and about to go onto my 5th phone. The battery is horrible it dies while im at work before i even get a chance to use it. It is unreliable. It freezes and is slows, shuts off i dont know how many times on me. And to make it even worse now my alarms or reminders arent working anymore and i can't save things on my phone half of the time. It is junk. Although i do look how it looks, never buy something for its looks.
The best thing about this phone is that i got rid of it. :). It has good reception and lots of features ( most of them unnecessary). But it sucks at the basic stuff like batery life, sound quality and simply functioning (shuts down and freezes).
this phone shuts down whenever it wants to and i wouldnt reccommend anybody purchasing it unless they never want to use it.
i have this phone for a year. the bigest problem was that it was shuting down when ever he wants too. but i changed the battery and now it's working well. the sound quality is not bad but there is not enought memory for ringtones. i have downloaded only 4 wav format melodies and the memory is full... in conclusion it's not i bad phone at all. if you want cheap and good phone than it's worth to buy it.
hi i bougth this phone back at portugal....and it wast good but suddenly the phone shuts off... by it selfs what @#$*& i do not recomed this phone realy!
I bougth a new cf62(T-MOBILE)but unfortunately i discorver it doest has callrecord/call duration,(i have to seach for it during call)with no reference after call,& no game was pre-instaled.please whatch this minor important issue.
This unit has an inherent design flaw--It randomly shuts itself off. I bought my handset in March 2005, and I am on now the not so prouder owner of my FOURTH Siemens CF 62. The problem appears to be that the batter will not stay in place, and the solution is double sided scoth tape under the battery. This works for several weeks, then it has to be replaced. My unhappiness with this product is compounded in that my service provider (fido) has offered no remedy except to continue replacing the phone (while it is still under warranty) or sign on to a new contract. Of course, this is not appealing based on the support I have received thus far. The bottom line: stay away from this phone.
i've had this phone for two months and i have to say it doesn't work too well after being washed in the washing machine The Siemens CF62 all around is great phone.Easy to use; speaker phone works great. love the dynamic lights on the outside of the phone. The cover for the battery get kind of loose. The ringtones aren't the greatest. Little slow getting to the internet. It's not a bad phone.
i think y dis fone keeps shutting off is coz of
da batt lyf. dere. tank me
Yea, obviosly you did something for the LCD to break smart stuff. I dropped it on concrete floors over a dozen times and it still outperforms. My battery lasts for a week. I dont know bout u guys but my phone has no problems.
Build quality is sh1t. I put this phone in my front pocket and sat down. The inside LCD screen broke!
@panjabi rock star
mine did never really freeze, so I can't tell you about that. If it switches off by itself (which by the way appears to be a hardware problem: loose contacts?) you can immediately switch it on again. However, if you are unlucky it switches off again after a few minutes only!
minutes 2 wait for a java game isn't long
but still the question of how long does it freeze for? and wen it switches off all by itself can u turn back on again? plz answer my Question!!!
phone is junk! shuts off whenever it wants, cant download any games for this piece of junk!!!
You can download ringtones on this phone. Im from Australia and there are a few ringtone companies on the new such as jamster and blueskyfrog which supports this mobile phone. but as u should know, downloading ringtones do cost a fair bit... if u are downloading ringtones, remember to switch ur gprs on and be connected with internet!!! i love this phone!!! :P
