Hi i got this phone a few days ago.. after lots of frustration i finally managed to connect it to the computer, so thanks for the help on this forum! this is a fashion phone and i really like the design... the photo resolution is not that good, but i solved this by using the night mode (even in a well lit room) it usually makes the photo look slightly sharper, i didnt expect much from a camera phone anyway! however there are features missing from the phone that was promised like java games and currency converter. i would recommend this phone :)
hi everyone!i bought one today and i really like it before do it!but now i think that mp3,bluetooth and second displey are very important!i really hope to download my picteres to pc,but if u can`t...if u think to get it im sure bi will fine better,ar not:)it`s only about your needs!good luk and think before bye:)

hi, i just recently bought the sf65 only problem i have is that i ahve taken a lot of pics and want to put them on my computer, so i bought an irda device but the software isnt compatable with the phone,.... do you know of any software that i could use?
ive tested it out with xp's built in manager which basically means as soon as i plug in the device and switch the infrared on i can start transfering files to my phone from the pc....but i wont let me do it the opposit way
this phone is amazing i think the idea of a camera and a phone in one is excellent i just cant for some reason get the pc to see the siemens mobile could someone please email me and tell me please, thank you. =)
i use to have a samsung e700 then i got the e820 and easily sent my phone book via infrared form old phone to new, but since then i have got this Siemens SF65 and it cant recieve the phone book...is there anyway of getting it to recieve it? ive tried both modes of infrared that it has and non of them will reconise my other phone.
Hello, can you tell me if this phone reads mp3 or real tones ? And is it able to transfer images and ringtones with other mobile phones via infrared ? Thanks
Hello i have Siemens sf 65 and yestarday i bought infrared port for computer to send my pictures from phone to pc but i can't.I can send thimgs from Pc to phone but when i send something from phone it start sending a stop It say me that it is blocked .
dca 510 is the correct cable to use
all the people that can not get images of the phone pay attention you need to download the drivers for the datacable these are here or type dca-510 in siemens website and search
they are on the cd but are not obvios, stop complaining as the manual on the cd explains the correct way of installing but you can never be bothered to read them and then go and whine, when it dont work.
Hi ! could you tell me,what cable to use for conection with pc?DCA-510 or DCA-540?
I have had this phone for little over 3 months now, and i have to say im very satisfied with it. The style, weight, shape, etc are all very good. And i always get lots of people saying how stylish it looks etc. The camera is of good quality.
Although i would say, the fact that non-predictive text is very slow, im a very fast texter and i find it very annoying, so i end up using predictive text which i hate! And the other negative comment i have is that when taking calls etc, it's not very loud i have to put it on handsfree and hold it by my ear!
The other thing is i can receive pictures etc by infrared but i cannot send things, it always fails!
All in all the phone is pretty good.
I just have 1 question? How on earth do you get photos from the phone to a computer? I have no idea how to do it? Do you use infrared or what? Please help, email me, thanks very much!
its is very interesting to hear that other people are experienceing the freezing problem its soo annoying!
i took it back to the shop and because it wouldnt freeze in the shop they didnt believe me and said they couldnt do anything
as for the getting picture sonto your pc i gave up its so impossible it was a TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY i dont reccomend anyone buys it
ok...need a little help with this phone. Apart from the camera being absolute rubbish and the photos coming out too dark, is there anyway that I can put a screensaver on to it? Coz you can upload gifs and different animations but what's the point if you can't use them as screensavers? please help me.
Angie x (Please e-mail me with an help you may have)
To the below question the answers are
1: Not a problem press the hash key to change it to non predictive text messaging
2:point camera at one self and press look at screen if good save it if not re-take
(if you have a mac i dont believe there is drivers for mac to transfer pics)
3: You can set it to answer or just display and that way ignore calls never been an issue
I am not a phone person. I am an Apple person. The first thing I require from all my electrical equipment is that it matches my ipod and ibook. This limits me somewhat in choosing a mobile. My £150 Philips 855's screen has busted and Philips have the nerve to ask me to pay £130 to fix it. Screw that I thought. So I typed 'white' into eBay mobile phone search. This Siemens came up. I have a few questions before I buy though. I don't really care about Bluetooth etc but there are a few points I was wondering about
1) A few people have said you can't add words to the dictionary. The problem is that I am a stone age girl who can't use the dictionary. It is still possible to manually type texts?
2) How do you take photos of yourself if there isn't a second screen... Or does one just have to learn to forsake narcissism?
3) As there is no external screen, when you open the phone when it is ringing, without knowing who is ringing, does it automatically connect you to that cow you have been avoiding all year?
Thanks for any help.
I got this phone about a month ago and i think it is a really good phone.And the camera on the phone is amazing you can any picture you want at any time of day.As for the features they are quite good but i think siemens could have made this phone a little better if they had put things like bluetooth,vido capure and an MP3 player on it.So overall a good phone but if you want one of the phones around probaly not for you
