Frances Brod, 01 May 2012I've been using my S45i since I got it, back in 2003, so it's nearly 9 years old and it has of... moreWhere do you live? if you live in Germany, it's easy to get the used S45i there, if you're lucky you can get in robust condition or even like new!
Very hard nowadays to look for the substitute of this phone, smartphone i don't really like, because the phone is getting smarter and the user getting more stupid :)
Many useless application is not used for daily basis,what's the use then?
Go for ME45,S45 or SL45 for your case Good luck
The best phone ever produced by Siemens!
I have S45i Titanium silver and champagne gold, both are very timeless!
Easy to use with high durability ad endurance, very reliable phone!
I've been using my S45i since I got it, back in 2003, so it's nearly 9 years old and it has often been of big help to me, so I don't regret at all getting it. Before that, I had a Nokia 8210 that I gave to my mom (the charger eventually died about 2 years later, so she decided to get a new drudge).
About a half year ago, one of the buttons of the S45i started to work only half of the times pressed and I found out that I had to press it in a certain way so it makes the contact.
Then recently, the battery started to act weird - it wouldn't be able to keep the phone on standby only for more than about 40 hours and actually talking on the phone would completely drain the battery within about 5 minutes. I never had to exchange the battery all the yeas and I'm really glad it lasted this long.
As of writing this comment, I'm unsure which new phone I should get. It obviously doesn't necessarily have to be a smartphone, it shouldn't be too bulky anyway, and possibly as reliable as the S45i. I'd even get a new S45i if it was available, but sadly I couldn't find a way for me to get one, so I'll probably get one of the less expensive devices that were released within the last year or two. (The smaller regional mobile phone contractors sometimes offer a phone + contract package that is more affordable than those of the bigger companies.)
Any idea about it's cost?
I'm bidding for one on eBay Germany. Off course to be used for my additional Sim card from which unfortunately i can not get rid of.
Heii.. this phone is superb for reliability.. I am using it as 2nd phone (after K550i) till now since i bought first time in 2003.. And case just full of scratch but for performance.. ow.. newer phone cannot beat this kind of phone.. ow, same as S25 i bought in early 2000.. My bro use it till now as 2nd phone (after K750i).
Viva Siemens (unfortunately, it bought by benQ and become benQ-Siemens, and it is the reason my view changed to Sony Ericsson).
Very small and lightweight, but on the other hand the buttons are extremely fiddly and it's quite easy to press the wrong one. Also the men u structure seemed to me not very intuitive...
While I used it without severe problems during two years, my colleague needed three of them during that period - twice unrepairable software problems destroyed his phonebook.
S45i is a wonderful phone. I once had it sometime in 2003 but it fell and stopped working. I took it for fixing but they were not able to instead it was damaged. I love the phone very much and I dont know if I could get another one. If it is still available. I wont mind purchasing another. I am from Nigeria. I looked for the phone but could not find here in Nigeria. It is a very beautiful and unique phone. It was the first phone I ever had. Thanks.

But someone stole it from me last weekend in IKEA, Graz (Austria). Dirty bastard... hope it brakes down now, and that you have no use of it, dirty little mugger...
Yup. I have had it for a year now... Well i am tired of it... :) No java, Booooring orange illumination, some keys get 'stucky' from sand and dirt, and it's lower than the price (i paid 200usd$)
I enabled phonecode on screensaver, my friend entered wrong phonecode three times and the Phonecode get locked. I know the phonecode, but the phonecode is locked. Now I cannot set security options. Anyone please tell me what should I do with my S45i.
