If you want a lightweight, groovy phone that comes in a range of colours, then this one's for you. The Siemans C25 is a great little phone, which although is small has a large screen and it's buttons are still easy to manage. There are 20 ring tones on it, but if you're not satisfied with that...

“Nokia Still In The Lead”

published 11/06/2001

ProSee op

ConsSee op

LOOKS Weighing at 140g the C25 isn't in the lightweight category however the featherweight which contains the 8210 etc appears to delude it. Still it's hardly a brick. The phone is 11cm long with a 2cm aerial, 4cm wide and 2 cm thick. It comes in a variety of colours, namely navy blue or sky blue...

“Smart phone”

published 19/12/2000

Progood looks, good price, decent features

Conscan probably find better

When I first saw this phone I was suprised at it's size. It is a remarkably small phone and weighs quite a little at just 135g. I think that this phone is a quite cute and good looking. It is also available in 2 colours depending on the network that you go with and the exact model number that you...

Mobile phones.....There’s so many to choose from there’s the trouble free Nokia the Fiddly Ericsson and the Siemens which cant be described any other way from boring. Well this is a complete exception. The C25 isn’t boring in any shape or form. I bought the C25 because it looks...

Prosmall, call quality (on vodafone) menu system

Consbasic functions

THIS is a phone more suited to pay as you go more than to monthly subscription as it is a more 'basic' phone. Monthly subscription allows you to subsidise a more lavish phone. Having said that, if you are looking for a cheap pay as you go phone, this phone offers a very small hand print for the...

Prosmall, easy use buttons, survives being dropped!

Consa bit heavy and it's not very stylish

I must admit this was not my first choice phone. My lovely Samsung SGH-500 was stolen from my workplace and I had to replace it. I chose to buy a Pay-As-You-Go phone and stick a replacement SIM card in it. It was a competition between this and the Nokia 3210 but everyone's got one of those and I...

The Siemens C25 holds a secret, a dark secret. In fact the Siemens C25 holds many dark secrets, all along the lines of the identity of anyone who sends it a text message. Sure, it tells you the phone number of the sender but how many mobile numbers do you know off the top of your head? Other...

“Best Pre-Paid Mobile”

published 09/10/2000

Prosmall, lightweight, DJ ringtones

Consbit plastic, small buttons

I think the C25 is easily the best value Pre-Pay phone available on the market, at £79.99 it offers excellent value for money, for a stylish, small and feature laden phone. It has a very ergonomic design and fits in your palm quite comfortably when making a call. The weight of 135g is perfect...

ConsThreatening addiction

When my partner told me he was going to buy me a phone I was outraged. I didn't want something that would tie me to anyone who wanted to reach me, when ever and where ever they wanted me. So he bought me one anyway. It took me a while to warm to it. I'd look at it now and again, occasionally...
