I had the phone for 8 years now. All features I used worked well. But time has moved on - my yahoo email account requires now SSL encryption, but the email setup of the SK65 does not allow to set this up.
Some other comments report of sudden hangup or software crash. This had happened for me as well when I had it new. It was caused at the connectors of the battery - the thickness of the battery can vary - thinner versions of the battery may cause a disconnect. I fixed this by putting three layers of masking tape on the back of the battery - this way the battery sits snug in the case and does not move.
I'm one of Siemens loyal customer in Indonesia @2005, but this type (SK65) I never have it. If there's the new one, you may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org may I will buy it
this movil change my life cause, after this cellphone i cant "work" without a keyboard qwerty.. i love sk65 & miss u so much MTF
how do i access face book on my seimens phone it wont highlight and load the facebook link that is in a text message.
Most amazing phone ever! So well built that seems better even over some rugged phones!
I had mine for nearly 5 years and a month ago I dropped it from the balcony of my apartment (4th floor) into the heavy snow below. The snow cover was over 3 feet thick and the outside temperature was freezing 5F so I gave up on finding the poor SK65. But yesterday the snow finally melted and I FOUND my phone - covered with ice and mud, but after an hour of cleaning and letting it dry and then re-charging the battery it worked as if nothing happened at all!!!
So sad Siemens gave up on producing mobile phones :( Sure - they had a lot of odd and simply faulty models, but there had been also a LOT of well designed and sturdy built ones like the SK65!
Very good phone. It has many features that I need mostly.The organizer function is great,the phone and address book has huge capacity suitable for business purpose.Actually I don't use this phone anymore it was completely destroyed on motorcycle accident. If only siemens decided to make mobile phone again I will buy this amazing mobile phone but I hope they will add some features for fun like mp3 player and camera of course.(the qwerty keyboard is very comfortable for writing message.so far i have never see such design adopted by other brands)
I have had my phone for almost 5 years now. I must say that while all my friends have changed phones like they change their underwear, the SK65 has out lasted them all. Its battery life is still excellent, its very durable and its the best mobile phone for texting. In summary: a very durable, reliable and exteremely user friendly phone with excellent USEFUL features of the like which i have not seen in other mobile phones..
