Don't know if would by anything named SIEMENS. (sea-men... se-men) Or is that pronounced sy-mens?

But to add to the thread:

DO NOT BUY:

Used computer parts - They didn't want it, why should you?.

Used underwear -(like from Goodwill or Salvation Army) They got rid of it, why would you want it?

Used Mattresses - What's that yellow stain?

Used Toilet papper,

I always thought this was weird to see for sale, Used Diapers.

Speedos!!!!! Does someone actually think they look good in them??? Women look good in skimpy things. Period, the end.

Extended warrenties on cars. They cost around 1500 and they do not cover any wear item. Chances are the only thing that is going to go out is a wear item and then if something else goes chances are the total repair will be under the price of the warrenty. That is how they make there money.

Well both me and kev got SIEMENS cell phones I can only speak for myself, but I'm very happy with mine. It's small nigh on indestructible, its got an 8 day battery life and goes ring when someone calls it. What more could you want.
