I have bought this phone (second-hand) after my Siemens S55 was stolen :'(
Why I have gone 'back' from a S55 to an ME45:
I had the S55 for about a year and a half and realized that I never used all those new features (MMS, camera, BT, Email)..
The only thing that is imported to me is durability. As I said my S55 was stolen and I needed a replacement. I didn't what to spend a lot of money, it had to be durable and I wanted a Siemens.
I could not afford the new ME65 so the ME45 was the best shot.
I was afraid that the ME45 would lack some features, but no! it has everything I frequently used on my S55. The 55 and 45 series are very close to each other, the 45 only lacks the new stuff...
So after a few days I'm very happy with this 'old' phone.
The only negative point untill now is that you only can receive 10 SMS, but when necessary you can move them to the archive
Oh not the forget: I was very happy with my S55 too and it was very durable considering that it is not really an outdoor phone. It has survived some rainfalls, drops on the floor, being sat on. It has survived different rockfestivals....
it is the best mobile phone i ever have. it`s has many good feature that the people needed.
Fair all round phone, tough and reliable. Possible improvements: Could do with more durable key pads. More info for dialled calls record. Easier addition of numbers displayed on screen into existing addressbook entries. Otherwise great service from a window cleaner's phone which has been through the mill.
@viperfox: You seem to don't know the phone quite well. In fact,
a)It IS shockproof. It's better than Nokia 5210 in this case.
b) I have tranfer many ringtones and logos via IrDA without problems.
it`s an excelent phone, full of features, but take care when u update the software; the case is waterproof but not shock proof (it`s not like on nokia5210, it's plain plastic); bad: infrared port can ONLY be used to connect phone to computer as modem, u cannot send rings and images thru irda, only datacable; the big arrows button is a little tricky, it's not circular, it's oval
Have had 3 ME45,s great phones, tough reliable will upgrade asap to new model
i want you to send me the manual ofthis GSM ME 45 i will be very glad to recieve it.thank you.
An excelent phone in the class of tough devices. Rain, dust and some drops and still working as new. You can change your girlfriend but not a ME45. :-)
My Siemens ME45 is blocked beacuause of three wrong entries in screensaver lock function. Does anyone know how to un-block it without sending it back for service? I remeber the correct phone code.
a good phone without finicality. it`s a buisiness phone with shock resistant, waterproof and very cool - flex. memory.
the best phone . i whatnt to make it me45i. can someone help me? thanx . bye
