The software seems to do the following: Full GPRS Class 8 support – 57,6kBit/sec, also via infrared (IrDA); Full EMS* support with up to 760 characters, pictures and sounds; Kung Fu by Battlemail™; MS Outlook™ data synchronization via infrared (IrDA).Maybe it will solve that April BUG.
IMPORTANT! New Firmaware update for free for S45 and ME45. You can download the instalation program from this link: http://www.my-siemens.com/com.aperto/MySiemens/Files/Specials/hq/gprs/ . If anyone use it please tell me about the result.
The April bug is flooding Siemens Customer Service with handys here in Portugal...The average time for a firmware upgrade rose from 1 hour to 1 or even 2 days! Nevertheless, the price of this phone has dropped to about €310 when it was priced at €375 in the first place
Hello...I really love the S45...is a great phone....with only minor problems...the ringtones is quite soft...and I am having difficulty getting the case for my S45...I guess the accessories(non-original) for S45 is quite limited and expensive too!!
I bought the phone recently....is a great phone with so many impressive features except that the ringing tones a bit soft.
Major PLUS: Siemens is the only manufacturer that encourages the "self upgrading" by consumers, posting the latest firmware version on www.my-siemens.com Nasty...
s45 called "6618" in China, and in my 6618, it have T9 english&chinese input.and with an english-chinese dictionary. that's great.
BTW, u can make .wml format docs to be read on s45.
Just bought the S45...is USD211 in Kuala Lumpur....I am having problem to transfer the Midi files as ringer tones to my phone..Can anyone help me on how to transfer the ringtones/midi files to the phone? Do we need to buy or download any softwares to do that ? Thanks
Is a great phone packed with advanced features....but the problems i.e. ringtones too soft, the vibration is weak, and the user interface not easy to use!
i wish i can own such a good phone. I have the c25 but would like to use this typr too
This phone is amazing... I am sooo impressed with all the features... jam packed with fantastic features!!! love the handsfree feature... its a shame u cant anwser the phone with the handsfree on immediately... gotta be one of the best phones on the market...really happy with it... u cant go wrong!!!
Plus: it has the best quality/price ratio available for its market segment!
I'm still stunned with this beauty! I've been a Nokia user for about three years and once I've tried this phone I've been a Siemens fan and I truly recommend it! It has lots of features that you can't imagine! Nad the "mobile fun" capabilities are huge! Never had that much fun with a phone! I'd rate it 9 out of 10 because it has a flaw: no date/hour available for the outgoing calls :-(
I own both S45 and ME45 because I like the feature and I also like outdor activities. I am satisfied with these phone, which are actualy similar to each other. I have never been this happy since I used celullar phone in 1996. I have tried many cellular make, but I think I like Siemens the best. The reasons being its longlasting battery and large screen. Now plus its feature such as GPRS and large internal storage capacity.
PS: I forgot to mention that one's a lot luckier if living in Germany, as seemingly they have three testicles, are wiser and have better customer service at Siemens :p...Talk about favoritism! - U must understand that it is quite frustrating to pay 300$ for something and the have to piddle around with it to make it work...that's why I'm sayin' all this.
Yup, the 14 SW version (or 5. for the asian market) fixes it allright, along with some other minor glitches, but I've got some bad news about the "on-line update" ideea: it can't be done - and the SW is already available! U have to go to a Siemens service center, bring some papers with u, to prove u bought it (that's such a load of shit!Bought it or not, it's their product and they should fix it, damn it!), leave it there for 1 to 5 days(!), although some people-mostly cute girls;)-reported that theirs was fixed in 1h...
Add to this the keyboard that will start peeling off (remember S35i...?) and there u have it! Good intentions, Siemens says...well the way to hell is paved with good intentions!
