ES you're talking bullshit
Sound quality is simply top! On the loudest level it might be too quiet on some locations, but you can simply switch to handsfree and hold that close to your ear. Do not push it against your ear (it could make you deaf!).
Battery live is outstanding.
On very light use my battery lasts more than a week with ease
On heavy use 4 days.
Don't understand why the display is hard to read, maybe in direct sunlight...
Keyboard might be a bit to small for some. Never had any problems with it, I have big hands!
The softkeys are as logic as can be... That's the big advantage of Siemens phones. The function of the softkeys vary, depending on the function you are using. It takes some time and intelligence to get used to it. But after a while it becomes very logical to work with. It also makes working with the phone very fast. Most people simply don't get it. They are used to 'Nokia-way' of walking through the phone. You know up is always up, down is always down, cancel is always cancel... = very slow way to get done what you want.
Reception is very good! On some locations where others have no reception at all this phone still gives 1 block.
IRDA worked without a single problem. When i bought my notebook I enabled irda on my phone, put it next to my notebook and i could transfer files within a second....
For software: look around on the web, the latest version of the software is version 91. Not very logical numbering, but it's the latest.
Adressbook cannot be sorted using the firstname, if you want that simply swith firstname and surname when entering the contacts.
NOOOOOO!!!!!! My S55 was stolen today!! :'(
Think I'm going to cry! Can't afford another one :(
It's going to be very hard going back to a lesser phone :'(

The S55 has a very good looking design, so if you want to look cool at the café or bar, it works well. But if you want a phone to actually use, look somewhere else.
The sound quality is terrible, both to the user and the recepiant. Battery life sucks, semi-active users need to recharge at least once a day. Display is har to read. Keyboard is small and uncomfortable (at least to a man). The software is very little intuitive and the use of the softkeys are inconsequent. Irda hardly works. Even with 100% reception, calls are often not received but routed directly to voice mail.
Also, the Siemens mobile web is poorly updated and organized. E.g. my phone has version 20 of the firmware. Siemens offers version 16 for download(!?). I was hoping for a newer version to fix some of the firmware glitches.
And can someone please tell me how to sort my address book by first name instead of sirname?
One of the better phones I've used! I used it for a year. Now I´m waiting for th S65. For radio & MP3 buy a music player....this phone it´s a jewel!
Getting rid of this phone. Not bad but plenty of better phoes out there. Shitty screen, and starts to fall apart after not long.
This is a great one from Siemens!!! I've use this one for about 1 year. Everything is doing great, although it has only 256 colors, it doensn't matter for me :) One thing that I regreted is, the connectivity. This one has problem in connecting to a PDA. It's IrDA is not quite generic, and you need to install its modem driver when you want to connect it as a dial-up modem on your computer. I don't quite like this way. Besides that, its PC Suite is easy to crash with other synchronising programs installed in the computer. However, other than that, this phone is a great phone. For me myself I can give this phone a score about 7.5/10.
i used to use S55 but i have a trouble that my phone was phonecode locked, can you help me?
Buy M55 if want to buy this phone. buy a data cable along with M55 instead of spending higher amount on this phone. there will be no need of an IR than.
M55 has better features and larger memory than it except the bluetooth.
i buy it its great phone except 2 things
1- its low color 256
2-i feel it when i put it beside me
i mean its radio waves effect on my nervse , any body here find this problem
email me plz
Don't get this phone. It's shockingly bad! Its a nightmare to use, the worst phone I've ever owned. Cant wait to get rid of it. Really is bad.
Econet line is what am useing,but for some days now is going up/down, gievn me MNT,NITILE,also asking me to select network why?
Sincerely ? All is EXCELENT...this phone has aeverything!!!The only drawback i see is the poor 256 colour screen.
before i got this phone, i hated siemens mobile phones.. after trading in my SGH-A800 and top up S$30 for this, i fall in love with it.. quick share with other phones using infared, nice polyphonic ringtones, no-lack menu, advanced MMS compared to nokia 40-Series phones and many many more..
i`m lntressted in buying yur phone,i`ll like to pay through bid pay.ps kindly send the paymant add.
