SL56 Battery Problem


Oct 17, 2003, 10:54 PM
Anyone know about the battery problem with the SL56? I was at Cing. and they said they do not have them due to a battery problem. 😕

There have not been reports of battery problems from operators who carry the SL56 so it sounds as though someone has passed along incorrect info. Perhaps it has not launched in your area yet since it is still new? I've used the Euro variant SL55 for months without encountering any trouble and it uses the same battery. It's a great phone and I recommend it.

Actually, I am using this particular model for the at&t system. The battery is horrible on it. It only gives you about 2 days on standby. I don't know if it's the applications running the phone or what, but a travel charger becomes your best friend when you use this phone. Don't ever go anywhere without the charger. Other than that, that phone is great. If you can live with the battery life, then I recommend this phone. From what I know, Cingular will no longer be carrying this model because of it's battery problem. But at&t has this phone available.

that sucks 'cause i thought the phone looked awesome and thought i could sell it in my store, (i'm an agent for cingular) but oh, well...there seems to always be something wrong with the siemens phones, the only one that i think is worth anything is the s56 on cingular...when i used it, it worked great, but it's the only one.

you were right about the phone with cingular...they just added it about 2 weeks ago on their website, and when i checked the site earlier today, they had taken the phone off...you can still special order the phone with cingular, but they do not advertise it, or have it posted on the website.
