Brought the Siemens SL55 from T-mobile at the begining of February for a very good deal.
The price of the phone in a tmobile store is £139.99. T-mobile had offered me £50 off any phone if i continued my contract for another year, which made the price £89.99.

I looked on the t-mobile web site and found i could get the phone for £69.99 if i broke my contract and took up a new one!! I phoned up customer services and explained this to them, and they finally offered me the phone for £49.99!! Total saving of £90

Dimensions
-----------------
Size: 82 x 45 x22mm
Weight: 79g
Battery talktime: Up to 210 minutes
Battery standby time: Up to 200 hours

Features
------------
Colour Screen
WAP (GPRS)
MMS EMS
Infrared modem
Voice recorder
Vibration alert
Predictive text messaging
Internal fax modem
Java games
Handsfree speaker
Polyphonic ringtones


Advantages
-----------------
This is the first time i have a phone that is not a nokia!! And now i dont want to go back!

The handsfree speaker is wonderful and once you have a phone that has one, you will never be able to do without! To listen to voicemail without having to hold the phone to your ear, or to talk to people whilst doing other things is very handy!

The games are ok - Rayman Golf, Tennis, Remind me (program that creates lists which can be sent as text's), Unit Convertor and Wonderful Vogage (Pictures of oceans and wave sounds.. not really a game)

The phone can be personalised in many ways - backgrounds, screensavers, colours, ringtones, proslide tunes, start up message.

A camara can also be brought and attached to the phone to make it into a camera phone (not tried this though so i don't know what the picture quality is like)

This phone is available in two colours .. ruby red or titan (grey/black)

Disadvantages
---------------------
After having the phone only two weeks, the screen is already scratched as i can't find a case to put it in!!

Also the battery does not last very long, i have to put it on charge about every 3 days.

The keys are quite small and take a while to get used to when texting.
