Summary: I bought the Nokia 3555 because I only make voice calls (no text, photos, internet, etc.). I love Nokia's user-friendly interface on their phones. 3555 is easy to hold or put in a purse or pocket; just the right size. Bluetooth works great. Battery lasts well, but can go from appearing to be full to almost dead in a matter of seconds. Just have to remember how long I've talked on it and keep it charged. For my needs, the Nokia 3555 is better than any other make or model.
Summary: I have had this phone for almost a year. I am shopping for a new phone because I can't stand it any more. It constantly turns itself off. I thought at first that the battery was loose in the compartment, so I tried to snug it in with some paper and packing tape, but it didn't help. I tried to figure out the cause by jiggling it and holding it different ways, but it didn't shut off until I set it down and left it alone.
Summary: Bad battery life! The Nokia 3555 lacks the fastest 3G support available (HSDPA), instead relying on the somewhat slower UMTS network for data transfers. For example sony ericsson tm717 has UMTS/HSDPA wich is much faster. Bad phone!
Good phone, don't listen to vendor regarding specs.

Summary: The phone works well in the GSM Network. All features work as described but it does NOT work in the UMTS 850 MHz band as stated by the vendor. If you want it to work in the UMTS bands look for a different phone.
Excerpt: I like the looks of this phone and it is very durable, but the battery life is DISMAL! I have to charge it every night. My friend bought the same phone and hers won't even stay charged a full day. Quite disappointing. I also do not like the type of predictive text feature offered on this phone.
