The internal speakers are lame as well.
The sound is muffled. so the MP3 ring tones are not that great for it..
I was excited when I got the phone..It looks really cool..
Now however I am frustrated with what a lousy product it is.
1) The Rubber is wearing away very quickly, and I only ever put it in the casing on my belt!!
2) The MP3 playing rubbish. It is a 50/50 chance that it will play the songs on the RS-MMC.
3) After setting the ring tones on either the RS-MMC or on board the phone, it still reverts to the original ringtone!!!Ahhhh!!!
4)It keeps Not reading any RS-MMC!! I sent it for repair and still!! ahahh it is driving me nuts!
5) The battery life is horrible.. with normal usage, it lasts me 2 days max..
Had this phone for almost a year I`m satisfied with it`s feature and reliability in the first month but in the last 3 month the screen is darker than before the rubber are peeling camera become disabled and now the joystik and the keypad begin to crumble
this is a nice feature phone but with less quality
I have the phone from about 6 months and mine also started to fall apart, mine rubber and joystick cap had fallen out, mine battery is draining way too quickly and the software is pretty unstable but it also has a very beautiful design, a good camera and an extremely powerful speaker so I am partially satisfied with it.
Just bought this phone. Almost lost the nipple/connector cover. I was wondering, if without the connecter cover, is it still water/dust resistant with the MMC slot and connectors exposed??? The old Nokia 6250, even though came without any form of connector covers works fine.
D..n M75 i have mine from 9m. and it's already falling a parts. First i'v lost nipple on the joystick,second rubber start falling off from battery cover and not to mention sw stability.Today battery starts to playing in socket...Yes, it's realy resistent to dust and water but not to my pocket at all /no dust over display like M65 :)/.I would not recommend this phone to anyone.
sorry for the "english" of mine :)
anyone who knows how to make the M75 play mp3 while i'm writing a msg or just browsing the menu, pls drop me an email! i was looking for some solutions, but without success. anyhow. a nice phone, but the software is real crap. it is freezing all the time and turns off without any reason. just like every other siemens. :D
I've just bought M75 3 days ago.
First i looked great. The video, not bad. The picture too.
But then, I surprised. Yesterday, it suddenly dead while I was reading a message. I'm sure the battery was half full. This night, it happened again. I knew this will happen. I've already read the testimonial about the bug. But now, while I was looking for the web, I couldn't find the menu to download the software. Can anyone tell me where to find it.
Oya, one of the weakness of M75 is, the bluetooth feature is too easy to transfer. It might cause a virus to transfer to the phone. It doesn't have any menu to accept or to reject a file and this could be dangerous.
ive heard a lot from the users of ME45. I myself, want to have a ME45 even if it is phased out in the market today. but still, in the colored camera phones, the M75 looks like the toughest phone in the market now today. as well as the M65. maybe you can also read the opinions of the users of that phone. anyway, i also read something here that there is a 1200mAh battery compatible with it. but not an original Siemens battery. dunno if it is available in Romania. =)
TO andy & shawn:
try setting the language to automatic. if it still dont work, try calling the customer service to assist you on it. =)
TO piksun & yehia:
try downloading the firmware and install it on your phone. it will fix bugs and improve software performance.
memory is 8 according to users. but you can purchase RSMMC cards of upto 1GB. but to be on the safe side. try using 512MB RSMMC.
Flash? purchase the flash accessory.
to be on the safe side, only turn on the bluetooth only when it is needed.
TO No Name:
reception? better ask your local telecommunications provider. or try comparing it with another phone on the same location.
rubber bumpers peeling off? try purchasing a rubber or leather or a neoprene case. obviously, rubber in time, softens and loosens its texture. it peels or sometimes, softens to the extent that it deforms even when you apply slight pressure on it. like the finger nails. its inevitable. thats the consequence. to prolong the rubbers life, dont place it in heat and in high humidity.
try reconfiguring your GPRS settings and/or WAP settings with the help of your local telecommunications provider. configuring Siemens settings is quite a pain in the neck. quite complicated. so maybe, ask help.
Peace and Good day to all!
yeah he's right. if you really want a waterproof phone, enclose it in a plastic bag or rather a Ziplock™. =) and just face it, everything has a limitation. And I agree with him that this is the best phone on its class on the market today.
Ok so you're a phone tester. So maybe you would consider that water is different from coffee.. lolz! and testing the phone would be just ok. as long as you would know its limitations. yeah you can try to operate it under water and test on how long can it withstand it. but not with coffee. ;)
thanks for the link... I've visited it already.. it answered most of my questions about the phone.
Peace and Good day to all!
i just bought siemens m75...they said it is durable...and i think they were right....but im having trouble in retrieving mms picture though??!!...but aside from that...everything works!!!
1- the phone is good butt the video of this phone is very very very very very pad in record and playback and it can'not play back the *.mp4 and if it playback it will be with
2- the internal memory is 8 mb and free 2.32 for used but not 14 mb so please repaire this mistake in the specification web page
3- No flash
4- No FM radio with RDS like sonyericsson mobile phones
5- very solow.
I think Siemens released this phone too hestitate...it still need improvement!!
i want to get this phone cause its hot and im going to be ucsing it on a construction sight. im not currious to how the reception will be in canada because we dont have 900 band. is the lack of the band really that bad because ive read great things from users in the states?
I have owned this phone for under a year now and I have been unimpressed with it.
First the reception sucks! I loose calls all the time in areas I know for a fact have coverage.
Second it is durable but if you are like me and keept the phone in your pocket. The rubber bumpers begin to peel off. Very disappointing.
I hardly ever use the MP3 player and the sound that it makes when it is connecting a call down right annoying.
I would not recommend this phone to anyone.
How do I receive SMS in chinese, all I get is dots dots dots and more dots.
