Sonim XP3 is the successor of the cult M35i. See: http://www.sonimxp3.com/
Backpannel on my Siemens m35i destroyed. I don't understand. I lost her.
I'm so sad: rubber on back pannel on my mobile disintegrate, disintegrate. Cant find more blue pannel.
I love my Siemens m35i very much. That mobile telephone, namely mobile telephone - my dream, what becomes true. True white dream, in Russia speaking ''blue dream''.
For me it piece of art, not firstly phone.
fv, 30 Jul 2007It was the most crap phone I've had. Already after half a year the battery would run out of po... morethat is problem of SO/Hardware,a reflash would turn it good again,if it is hardware it is only a small piece that need to be replaced..it is called pa.
I have one with that problem too,I am going to flash it to the latest firmware to see if it solves.
Anyone knows if the latest ones can send more than 1sms (more than 160chararacters).
I've had one since 2000, use it when I'm in Europe (summers). Just dropped it out a fifth-floor window. Blew into 8 pieces, but when reassembled, it worked again. Not reliably, but still, incredible. I'll buy a used one to replace it.
Despite it's size, this is a very robust phone and has security features I haven't seen on anything else. Babysitter function is brilliant for children - only let's them call pre-programmed numbers.
Still going on the original battery after 7 years, although recharge times are getting a bit frequent.
I got this cellphone from my father (bought at 2000)... it is strong as rock! I still use it until now. However, the battery is difficult to find now. I hope this cellphone live forever...
I have this phone since 2002 and I am very happy with it. If it goes wrong I would like to buy a new one of the same type. Please do not stop its production. I like its rubber coating which is very practical.
I've gone thru 3 batteries and having trouble finding new. It IS 4yo. If I like the phone - why can't I find new batteries? Gellibeen OZ
My friend gave me this phone for free in 2005 and I use it until now. I think Siemens M35i is really a good stuff. It's very easy to connect this phone to PC which linux installed on it. I never get a trouble with this phone. It's really nice for me... :)
This is the best phone I ever had. I bought it when I started to work at a mine in South Africa. Fantastic durability, never mind that it is everything-proof, this phone is operator proof as well! All those who criticize it probably never owned one!
The only drawback was the slow OS response. Also mine came into contact with something (I thought maybe diesel) that corroded the rubber cover at the back.
It was the most crap phone I've had. Already after half a year the battery would run out of power within one day, without usage. If calling, it would run out of power during a few minutes of calling.
Worst was that no new batteries were available for this phone. Big waste of money. Any Nokia phone over this one.
This was one of the best built quality phone. It was wayyy better than Nokia 3310, eventhough that was newer than M35i.
Its bricklike, litterally. Splashproof, weatherproof, sandproof, shockproof. Its incredible. All this in a stylish and smaller size than...well, a Brick!
It was my first phone (2001, i was 11) and i thought it was great, even my parents who owns better versions thought its better than theirs! Ringtone was one of the best coz it doesnt sound monophonic like those nokias. It sound polyphonic!
the only drawback was the messaging and small screen. But at that time, i didnt care coz all i do was call and play the maze game!
But i was really P***d off coz my cousin took this phone away (he said he needed to borrow for a night), and later on sold it for cash. Its terrible. I would love to get this phone again, but its tooo antique for me. So thats why im thinking of the siemens A52 coz siemens phones are great.
This one is a true ruffneck. Mine fell off a scaffolding once (about 12 meters free fall), hit the concrete ground and rang a second later - no damage but a little scratch. Used it for 6 years now and never had any serious problems, apart from a freeze every now and then.
I bought a new 1350NiMh battery for this (about £15) and now a charge lasts a week.
