Got this unit Sep 04. Though this was brought for repair (could actually have been with the service center longer than I've ever used it) a lotta times, it still is the best phone for me, until now, and maybe for a longer period. Might be because this is just my 2nd phone since 2001 (Nokia 5110) and I rarely am captivated by new products.
My terms of choosing a handset basically is by the design and what it's capable of. The sleek design of this (SX1) is one of a kind, the uniqueness, and having to know that only a few of us owns this gives a feeling of satisfaction, a feeling of pride. Not to mention, the functionality of this, providing you the basics (sms, calls, etc) of your mobile with add-ons too (games, etc).
I have one concern though, and if anybody can provide an answer, please. I just have a dilemma in accepting large files due to internal mem is limited, are there means to actually redirect these [files] directly onto the MMC? Appreciate any suggestion.
With all these said, please know I'm a proud owner of one!
Hello there. I still own and feel fully proud of this sleek mobile masterpiece after buying this in Thailand from MBK (since 2004). This is the one and only one symbian phone from SIEMENS before merging with benQ.
Any symbian phone in this world naturally hangs depending on how big is its RAM and firmware stability. Firmware upgrade cannot be avoided and this can be tricky to make things worse, if you are careless. I burnt out my SX1-OMAP once and have it replaced at an incredibly high price. It was my last time to play with firmware. So far, little sx1 rarely goes hanging and seems to be so humble as it is getting older. Housing has run out with my plan to buy new housing from germanmobile.com with carbon black version.
Could anyone never used this state-of-the-art phone keep any words for oneself? Your biased comment does not make any good to this old discontinued phone, yet the dignity and proudness of existing owners. Unique keypad layout suits my sms typing fully.
3 reasons I love this sx1 with heartfelt sympathy to throw it away.
1. one and only one SIEMENS symbian phone
2. full features: FM, memory slot, MP3 (supreme quality with O2 player), video, camera (even, this is only VGA).
3. uniqueness you can be proud of
i love siemens its big company forever whatever every company have some trip but big company must be strong back
SX1 is so disturbing bcoz of it's keypad so disturbing... so hard to txt...
i have this phone 3months but it is disturbing me through software problems kindly send me its software
I,ve had sx1 model since 3.5 years ago.
It satisfied me.but time 2 time it,s BT makes s.b in trouble because of it,s low connectivity & other it,s BT transfering storage as you know very very low capable.
those who say sx1 is bad they sure dont have use it..it was the best symbian device uptill jan 2005....it still holds a very strong position in symbian devices.
siemens will not launch mobile phone anymore, (maybe benq does) so forget it about a new product
this mob is too bad and i advice any one not to pay money in that phone,this phone is a very bad product of siemens and make me not to trust this brand
Jody, I don't really think that'll happen, because I believe Siemens mobile went bankrupt.
The phone is amazing! I hope that Siemens would come up with an improved version of it in 2008 and beyond. That would be great.Most advanced phone ever made and best looking phone ever made.MOST Beautiful
The Siemens Sx1...The Best phone ever made and even though it is an old phone i think it can still be big copetition to other latest mobile phones.The phone was so advaced for its time.What surprises me thogh is that nobody really heard of it and never sold quite as good as the other phones of its time.Software is great! This phone is a TITAN.Only bad thing is software problems.
I have just bought a used SX1 which i found it an excellent phone except 2 things as follows:
1- The phone can not read Arabic at all.
2- Internal Storrage (fromm File Man.) is 3.87 MB.
So please advise if there is any Software could be implemented to the phone to enable Arabic language, and advise is the phone storage is 3.87 Mb or not.
Thanks in advance for your prompt reply
my mobile phone don't support the persian language please send me the software of it.
thank you .
i'm absulutly desperate !
i just bought a used one with very old firmware ( SVN:10, Appl SW: 12.2_10 ) and it
has a lot of errors...i reseted the phone but it doesn't fit some problems...software crashes sometimes when i try to finish a call or if i want to take a call during i am in the menue
I don't find a working Software to synchronize my Outlook Contacts (I can't find the MPM Symbian Update / SDS for SX1 on the net... Siemens closed all their mobile sites and Benq shows no support for the SX1). I tried Oxygen Phone Manager II 2.41 - can't find my SX1 via Bluetooth.
sorry for my bad english and greetings from germany
maybe...can someone plz send me a newer firmware or the softwareupdate ?
i have had this phone for about 4 years now and i aint had a problem with it. I was suprised that it ran s60 like on the old nokia s60 phones and the ngage. If you guys didnt know but you can play ngage games on the sx1 and install s60 software.
it's unique and the first mobile with camera,video,mp3,mmc etc.by siemens in compare with nokia,motorola.I am using it 5 years now 2003-2007 and i love it,i can't find something like this.
