about your problem I dont know if i can be of much help but here goes: siemens have allways had problems with signal in the past or atleast from what I heard; also I had 2 - 3 sl45 and later 2 A50 all of these great phones but sucked with signal and sim reader allways had that damn CARD ERROR message :) this S65 has great signal and keep in mind that it was used 9 months before me so all of them must have great signal reading capabilities I have a nokia 1100 that has worse signal I suggest exchanging the signal unit; ... anyway I took mine to a mobile service and they fixed the keypad they said it could be the circuit board of the key that is busted fortunatelly it wasn't.. they cleaned it and now it works if u say yours has no lights probably you have to replace that certain circuit board; my advice be extra carefull with the autenticity of the part I know for a fact that if it is not original it will melt to temperatures excediing 300 Celsius degrees and in 1 or 2 weeks it wount work again
I bought this phone because I am a fan of buisness phones like siemens s45 sl45 nokia 6310i but the s65 is very difficult to use and maintainance is expensive. It is almoust like you can feel Siemens's lack of founds and logistics when they developed the phone just by using it (i think they made it just before selling to benQ when they were declining) This phone is the Cinderella of buisness mobiles I just like its design and the fact that is twice as cheap as a nokia 6230i. So what I am saying is that we are going to have a lot of trouble with them and if you decide to keep it in the future get prepared for some serious reliability issues
P.S. i took it to the service and now the keys work but it went off a couple of times for no reason and now the end call key loses contact from time to time THIS PHONE IS A BEAUTIFULL NIGHTMARE :)
Best of wishes

It is a very nice phone. I'm using it since the day it came on the market and I'm very pleaced with it. A bit to slow on infra-red and the camera is bad, but other than that it's an ok phone. I would recomand people to buy it if they want it.
