Reliable with a few extra punches

I have been using the C56 mobile for a month now, and I must say how impressed I have been. I was not very confident with Siemens phones due to problems in the past with previous models, but the C56 is outstanding! I really liked the idea of having a speaker phone, and it has been performing really well for myself. The C56 comes standard with a rapid charger and lithium ion battery, and generally takes me only 1.5 hours to achieve a full charge on the battery. This is perfect for me as I never have time to charge the battery. The battery usually lasts me about four days, and I leave it on 24 hours a day. If my battery has died and I have set the alarm or a reminder, the phone saves enough battery power to still alert me. THe polyphonic ringtones come out crisper and cleaner than past mobile phones with polyphonic ringtones, and the melody composer keeps me entertained. You can also record your own sounds for ringtones. All in all I have found it to be a reliable phone with lots of extras to keep me busy.
