This was my first phone and it was excellent! Its build was virtually indestructible. I wish Siemens still made phones as some of them were great.
One of the best phones ever made...9 years of heavy usage, and still works perfectly. Only had to replace battery(damn hard to find it).Wish Siemens would produce mobile phones once again...
use nokia bl-5c or bl-5ca battery of you lost the original battery of this phone. works very fine . . :-)
I lost my M35 but found it again. I founed it outside and now it works after 40 days in snow when the snow was melting.

I still have this phone, bought it in 2000, and 10 years after, i turned it on using a batery bought on a chinese store, and guess what, still works, i used to play a great game on this phone, called labyrinth, i always took it to the beach, once it fell from my shorts in to the edge of the water, i thought it had it, but nope...still working! Was an amazing phone at it's time, now its a relique, but still kicking, and i hope 10 years from now, it still works so i can own a real rare thing, a 20th century phone still working. ;)

joel, 13 Jul 2009does any one of you here still have the phone in working condition? I really loved this phone ... morei still have one in good working condition although the battery needs to be replaced. it's good for only a few minutes. have original box, manuals and travel charger
anyone still using this phone? i do. but now the cover is breaking apart (too much free-falls) whilst the phone itself still works... seems like noone here in my country sells m35 cover anymore so,... gotta have to say goodbye soon i guess.
skinnie, 12 May 2009most of m35 problems were due to an IC called PA (power amplifier)..and that requires solderin... morePA is a component of the phone's antenna. That is responsible for catching up operator network frequencies.Its easy to repair.
Used this phone before.
Simply one of the best phone i've ever had.
Very robust and i like the design, so fresh at that time.
So pity that i've lost the phone...

does any one of you here still have the phone in working condition? I really loved this phone before but I wasn't able to get one.. :(
This phone was my first phone bought in 2001/2002.
It was really tough.
At this time, its size was really big.
JANE, 22 Jan 2009can someone help, i have this phone never used before and when i started using it the battery... moremost of m35 problems were due to an IC called PA (power amplifier)..and that requires soldering skills I think..
But it can be because of the battery too..
JANE, 22 Jan 2009can someone help, i have this phone never used before and when i started using it the battery... moreIt's due to the age of the battery most likely. Handsets of this age ARE likely to have faulty batteries or are on thier way to thier last breath, it's best you get a replacement battery for as cheap as $1 or whatever currency you use, they are very cheap. Try Ebay UK or EBAY.com wherever you are based. Becausesiemens don' exist anymore, you'll find it hard to get support so yes, try ebay, they normally advertise batteries as but it now prices and make sure it's not dodgy batteries made in China or somewhere else. Make sure it is made in Finland or up to EU standards.
