Advantages: small, very light, loads of features
Disadvantages: lack of ringtones, slighty complicated to use at first but then easy
After trying several different mobiles over the past few years - motorola, philips and nokia i was pleasantly surprised by the siemens c45. It provides good value in a tiny and light phone with an impressive selection of features. Most people treat Nokia as the best manufacturer of phones and yes it is true that there are more free ringtones/logos available for nokias, but in terms of features the siemens knocks it into touch.
there's a really handy birthday reminder, a notes section which i use contstantly for shopping lists, a nice selection of ringtones (and you can also download some free and non-free ones at the siemens site for a more personalised effect) and i particulary love the ringer on/off button which allows you to turn on/off all ringers by only pressing a single button. The key lock facility is great - press a single button to turn it on and it has never come undone by accident unline my nokia 3310. It's much small er and lighter than my nokia 3310 aswell. There are also some nice covers available for it if you want to make it more personal, but it comes with a nice durable one anyway. It does take a while to get used to how to use it, but all phones do really and its very simple once you're used to it.
If you value a phone with lots of unusual and useful features (and it's stylish too) over a fashion accessory then chose the siemens c45. it's my favourite phone yet!!
