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.
I'm still using this. My previous phone cost a lot of money but then it got a bit of water on it and stopped working. This one is splashproof and built like a brick. All phoens should be made like this.
haha! it looks like a cross between a custard tart and a banana, it awful, and rubbish
Great phone! I have one since 2002 and still using it. Great phone!
I want to buy the same one when this one dies... OK, the same one but with ICQ feauters :P
give me new product of M35 : white display 128x128 pixcel,poly midi,stereo,smallest size 104x15x45mm,radio fm,light
this is like the best design EVER for a mobile phone, i got myself k750 and i dnt like it very much kuz it gets slow from time to time, but im using nokia 6688 too, now that mobile is fast and very good menus, BUT m35i is faster then both, no shminyi minyi just call/sms and best design ever, oooohhhh i love this phone
It was the BEST phone. Simple, complete and sturdy. Shock resistant, with vibration, and water resistant. It was a GREAT phone.
But after 5 years of abuse,it finally died. and it died peacefully. If I could buy a new one again, I would. if anyone knows where to buy a grand new M35, i would buy it from you.
Please help me.....

Help, I'm looking for firmware updates for the M35i but all I'm picking up on google are dead links! Any ideas?
My second GSM phone, but the best. In Brazil nobody know the M35i. I buy he in Spain. He's excelent, menu in portuguese, images in SMS, ringtones customizeds. Great phone.
