 There is a local and remote vulnerability and
 Siemens *35 and *45 series phones.

 A message of the form "%String", where String is on of the
 languages from the phone language selection menu, will
 completely disable *35 series phones and result
 in a 2 minute read delay on *45 series phones. Note that
 the first letter of language should be capitalized and
 the quotation marks should be present in the message.

i have to add the S55 to the list here.
I sent a message as described to my friend and then read it im my "Sent"
folder => 2 min delay. no chance to abort. so a real DoS.

C55 is vulnerable as well, however it doesn't DoS - the phone hangs while 
reading SMS in ordinary way but at any time you may exit from "Please 
wait" screen by pressing "disconnect" key for a while.
Only method to read the sms is to Edit it insted of View.

SMS sent via www sms gateway _does_ "DoS".
