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: 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.
Summary: I've owned a couple of Nokia phones in the past, but this one is simply bad. This model likes to randomly shut off, shuts off sometimes while dialing or closing the clamshell, and has extremely poor battery life. I gave my mom my 4 year old Samsung, and the battery life on the old Samsung is still 2-3 times greater than this 6 month old Nokia. If you are reading this, then you are smart to do your homework before buying and read these reviews.
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.
Summary: I have all kind of problems with this phone such as battery overheated, cell phone overheated and can not use more than an hour per charge. On top of all the drop calls and phone shut off. car charger and new battery did not work neither. T-Mobile did not help at all but yet insisted that this is nokia problem and not t-mobile. T-Mobile still insisted that 2 years of commitment with a phone that would not work. This is how they treat their customer.
