Great phone. Had mine for 2 years and still can't find a replacement I'd prefer (although the Moto PEBL is tempting me).
Things that make me want to keep it for ever...
* Very small (but not so small you can't use it
* Very lightweight
* Nice rounded corners
... all that means you can fit it in your trouser pocket and sit down without crippling yourself!!!
* Nice easy-to-use menu
* Good predicative text
* Good business features
But it does have some down sides...
* Battery life is good... unless you turn Bluetooth on (then it last a day on standby if you are lucky!)
* Bluetooh has been a little tempremental when connecting to my car kit (Sony-Ericsson HCB300).
* Keyboard and buttons are not robust (I've had to replace them several times).
i have this siemens S55 that i bought about a month ago but ever since i bought i have never seen the blutooth working i have gone around the phone but it seems there is no option to even send data/file using bluetooth. also it does not vibrate even after selecting the silent alert and the ringin is too low that make me miss calls when i am in a noise place even if i am in a quiet place i have to constantly whatch the phone so as not to miss any call. anyone have solution to this pls email me. thanks..
The phone is excellent but I need help on how I can increase the memory if possible.Its just not enough for me but I love the phone.
Am about to replace this phone but here are my comments after several years' use for what it's worth.
Good points - compact, light weight, attractive, menus simple to use.
Bad points - buttons on the side get pressed by accident every time you pick it up, keys stick when trying to text, hard to hear caller even on max volume, poor reception in areas where other phones give good reception.
I had a S55 and it was a really trouble with the signal...very bad... but please why in this picture he don't look how it should...with color display?
Does anyone know how much they are worth now?
I've had mine for 5-6 years, but i want an upgrade now. Its working fine but has two or three scratches on it but otherwise looks good.
Got one two years ago, only real problem i have with it is that there are simply TOO many functions on it.
Although the buttons tend to fall off like leaves of a tree in autumn(I fixed mine with a couple of drops of secondglue)and the extra camera tends to snaps pictures only to display blurry images on the screen, and one cannot really hear it when it goes off in your pocket, even when it is set on loudest.
But the battery lasts for ages without any need for recharging, something of a problem with all my previous siemens phones, and it can take quite a beating wihout acting funny in any way.
So if you are not looking for a phone that is pretty, but you are looking for a reliable phone with loads of extras, then definately don`t pass this one up.
Well, I've been using this phone for about 2.5 yeas now.. and to be honest It never went out of use... and still surprising me! if not facinated with hot topics (hi-res camras.. wave ringtones...) mean if we are talking about proffetional use of the phone, then it is very great and you will never need more cabapilities. all communications are available and very hard duty set. falled thousends of time on the floor and everything you need after that is just pick it up and continue the conversation..
this set is very usful phone and friendly too.
Had Siemens before and was happy with it, but after I purchased this..I will never ever buy Siemens again. I used this for 2,5 years and must admit that this is certainly not the best choice. It is slow, not very functional, I wouldn't buy it again.
My 2nd Siemens (and last). First was a M35 but spent more time in the shop having motherboards replaced than in pocket. Now my S55 is only 1 year old 3 of the number keys have already fallen off and the navigation key no longer works properly. I will never again fall for these cheap junk Siemens phones just because they have lots of features.
one of the greatest things about this phone is than u can store as manny sms's as u want. i've just transfered my sms's from phone to computer! I had about 500 SMS on phone memory and there weere still room!
old, but still great phone!
Still quite feature packed. Light and small. Looks good. Newer S-class Siemens are bigger or heavier and tend to look more cheaply than this one. But to get the full power of this phone you ought to patch it, which requires some technical skill and knowledge (and cancels warranty if you still have one). My favourite patch is that which frees additional memory (up to 1,7M total), with that one you can use this device for reading e-books or add more games or for recording more minutes with dictaphone etc. Minuses of this phone are small keys and shabby LCD (display is 12-bit, but phone manages to use only 8 of them).
This is my 2nd Siemens phone, the first one broke with with no explanation. I replaced it with this phone. The phone works great as long as you don't use it. I had this phone for two weeks before the menu buttons broke. Then it would turn off for no reason. Then the phone would ring and I would press the talk button and it would hang up on the person and keep ringing unitl I took the battery out of the back. Maybe I was sold a demented phone but I was NOT happy at all with either of my Siemens phones!!!

I've had S55 for two years and am really pleased with it. The functions of the phone are both great for business and personal use. The menus are very well designed and user friendly. You can search easily and fast in the phone book. The keypad is great for typing measages. IT IS EVEN WATERPROOF!! I never used a phone cover but it is still like new.
