Does this phone still suffer from reception problems? I've read some mixed reviews, but that was when the phone was new. I really like the design of this phone and am considering buying one. Thanks!
Just launch the camera software, and then go in the camera settings, the last option is the camera snap sound :)
i have bought nokia 6500c but i am unable to find out an option to turn off the sounds of camera. can anyone help me about that?
After much survey to get a basic full function phone, i was narrowed down to the 6500 classic for its simplicity and attractive design.
Being of Symbian S40 platform, i can now SYNC with outlook to manage all 1550 contacts and more than 10 years of calender entry.
As a business user, i need a reliable phone, fast, no-nonsense and does not pull my pants down when placed in my pocket.
I can say that everything is perfect except the camera. I dont really use it, as a proper 8MP digital camera will take better pictures for personal and work use. Its good enough for emergency shots where you dont have your camera with you.
There are lots of S40 themes, games and applications that can be downloaded fomr the net.
Another supprising fact is that this phone is able to play movie files sized more than 100MB. I have converted a movie sized 150MB and it plays smoothly without any jerks. All with the standard player.
Battery life is not too bad. I have been using windows based PDA-Phones and now SICK of them.
These PDAs usually last 1-2 days, so getting at least 3-4 days with 6500 classic is great.
People always complain about the 3G secondary video call camera... think about it, how often do we place a 3G video call.
look at it a a piece of precise engineering measuring only 9.5mm, appreciate its beauty, individualism and above all... simplicity.
i like that nokia 6500 classic b'coz of it's wonderful en beautiful style. That is one of the celfone i want, that's why i love nokia.
i love it its so classic....it has everything i need.really happy with this phone
l was going to buy this phone today but yo comments are freaking me out so now l dont know wat to do.....
absolutely useless battery life.Cannot connect to network..."error in connection"In an emergency you cannot rely on this phone.serial no on 7th &8th digit is 02!!Worst of all service provider is prepared to lose me as a customer after 15 years as I 'chose'it.Only good thing is my bill is half of what it used to be.My N73 might stall but is far better.Good looking but dysfunctional.
Its great looking phone i love so much i brought 2! and i work at carphone warehouse.
Has anyone succeeded playing videos with resoulution higher than 176x144 on that phone ? I'm trying, and I can only get the sound playing, no picture if >176x144. That's sick. My software version is 04.84 and I saw on nokia website that there's an update .. Does it solve this problem ?
I pressed move numbers by mistake on my phone!!!! Now they have disappeared from my phonebook. Also - they are still on my phone somewhere but I can't find them AND when I go to save my numbers they save somewhere that isn't my phonebook (and not my SIM either). Can anyone help with this predicament because I would prefer not to stop using it because it won't save any numbers. Pleasepleasepleaseplease help someone!!!!!
Whats going on with the battery life gripes? Ive had this phone a month now. Use it for loads of calls and texts everyday. Battery life is great. 4 days between charges. Leave the bluetooth off unless you need it. Leave the GPRS off unless you need it. And use the power saver and sleep options. Bingo! Speaker is great. Screen is great. Cant fault it EXCEPT theres no memory card slot. Its a cracker!
had this phone a year and is probably the worst phone that I have ever had. turns itself off ,battery life is rubbish and now doesn't have a ring tone! have to rely on the vibrate and can't upgrade until june.

The Nokia 6500c is a great little slim phone ii love it!! Takes great photo's & holds alot of the music ii like to take on the go!! Just with that they would update the model & give some more memory or a space for a memory card so then it can hold more than just 1GB.. Other than that II LOVE MII 6500c!!!
