One of the best mobiles at the time. Also, it was one of the first with MP3 player ability. Unfortunately, it had no 3.5" jack, and no stereo headphones were bundled with the phone. Soft-modding was very popular, with additions like Java or switching the firmware to SL45i.

I have one and I love it so much. In my country there's a club for people who is using this phone. They also mode something else for this phone. I my self made some. It's great phone. Especially the MP3 player function. The sound quality is great. Love it.
i love this siemans sl42 and i which i could have money to buy it but unfortunately there is no money to buy it and the most thing i like in it is that of it talk time and phone book capacity
This was one of my favourite phones until it began to develop software bugs that would cause the display to fade.
Avoid this phone. I was not the only user who had this problem. It has made the phone useless to me. Buyer beware!
I bought a SL42 but haven't been able to get hold of the SL42 Original Data Exchange Software. Twice I've been sent software for the SL45 which doesn't seem to work. Can anyone help.
This phone is user unfriendly, and quickly developes hardware and software problems.
Zero reliability, go for a scandanavian phone!
Siemens Data Exchange Software doesn't work with my Windows ME. What should I do? Anyway SL42 is great phone!
