Don't get a CL75. The support is crap. Lost all the themes and files so downloaded the phone manager and presets, got myself a DCA540 cable. Hey presto, doesn't work. Siemens support say the CL75 does sweet FA with the phone manager apart from "smart sync" which is not what it says on their downloads page. And do they care?
Poppy CL75 was Xmas present.
Infra Red only communicates with another CL75 not with my son's and husbands Sony K300 or K700. SPoke with Siemens who said it should work with both.No way to get pictures off for free other than Infrared. Got USB DCA 540 cable and downloaded latest drivers and Mobile Phone Manager from Siemens Benq website. You can sync the address book on phone with the computer but nothing else. Spoke to Siemens again and they confirmed that is all you can do with this phone. I wonder if it is locked in some way by the manufaturer. Taking it back tomorrow for a refund or to swap to a Sony K520i.

TO THE POST BELOW:
to get the poppy back on the screen, got into your pictures and you'll find a folder called SkinScheme, open that and the poppy picture is in there, and just "set as wallpaper".
Hope this helps x x
i have had the poppy phone for a couple of weeks. the battery life is absolute rubbish and a full charge is only lasting 24 hours maximum and that is without using it for making calls or sending texts. i also lost the poppy when changing themes and have also tried master reset and it still isnt anywhere to be seen. most likely taking this one back to the shop and will keep my fingers crossed for the replacement
hi, kk anyone who is having trouble with battery life should cut out all non essential items. I turned off the light on my keypads, turned off GPRS and illumination at minumum! seriously works. Did the keypads thing today and there is only a little bit of battery gone after I charged it 24hrs ago!which for this phoen is quite good!!!
my boyf bought me this phone 4 xmas after i winged on about it! anyway been having a few probs.
this screen keeps going blank white on me after a few seconds of it being on and then you have to turn it back off and restart it again but it just does the same thing.
can anyone help me plz? im going bonkers!!!!!!!! is there any way to fix it myself or will it have to go back?
I don't know about the question below, it is kind of strange it doesn't give you a time like on the Nokia phone! I'll see what I come up with and get back to u!I have a little query 2!In c'est La Vie, I can't seem to handle the dating game... I'll turn up to the location and it still says that I missed the date! what is happening there? no its silly but sure its the little things that keep me going:)
Ive got the Poppy phone but i cant get my organizer to work properly. when i set a birthday, the alarm doesnt go off at all. even for memos nothing happens at the time i set for it to ring. if anyone can please give me a step by step on how to set a memo to ring that would be great. thanks!
Is it me, or is this more widely available in Poppy Pink than Silk Flower Red/Pinstripe Black?
I posted below but have decided to post again just to clear a few things up for people who are thinking about getting this phone. My phone is the poppy version and it did freeze once so I had to take the battery out and put it back in to get it working again. I was worried about the battery life at first as at one point it only lasted a few hours after being fully charged, so I charged it again and since then it has been fine. I was worried I was going to have to take it back! But since then its completely fine. The instructions can be quite complicated but its fine once you get used to it. I would reccommend it to anyone.
I got the phone for christmas and I love it! I am having problems with sending pictures via MMS or infrared though. My SIM is Orange and I went onto the Orange website and followed the steps which is supposed to allow you to send pictures via MMS, but it still wont work. It starts and says "connecting" but then just says "connection failed". I dont know if theres just something I'm meant to do but havent. Anyone got any ideas?
I have the Poppy mobile,i bought it before xmas,worked fine for three weeks,then screen started freezing, contacted Siemens who arranged for free postage to get it fixed, so no problems with the customer service.
i have had this phone for a month and im glad to say it is great!!!! it does have picture caller id and whats this about the battery-ok its not brilliant but this phone is camera and video what do you expect. the games are very good camera and video quality good.the design is super and mirror has proved a real hit. i have had no technical problems and i think the siemens poppy phone is a great success!!!! xoxox
The battery is really really bad. It goes flat in 2 days regular use and the phone is 1 month old.
I was told, that there is no pic caller ID on this phone. Is that true? I wonder, how anyone can say, 220 h of battery-stand-by-time. But in general, it´s a smart phone.
