i think this phone is useless (sorry about that) because nokia launce 6120 classic Symbian-60, cheap 3G and HSDPA phone, with all facilities almost same with 6500 classic, think about s40 sure it cannot infect by phone virus, but compare 6500 classic and 6120 classic its way to far i mean toooooooooo faaaaaaaaar with same facilities,
i think its a great phone! loved that gold (?) colour and nice featurs, im not asking for more, i have my nokia 6101 since octuber last year and i cant get rid of it, i love all the nokia phones!which one is best this or the nokia n73!
guys are you really fighting?
Where's the feedback regarding the heat up problem with all Nokia phones ???
mhjG, do you encounter any heat up problem with this phone? pls. advise.
SE T650 or Motorola V8 already using hardened glass, this Nokia is still using plastic!
SE T650 have memory card but not this 6500!
Motorola V8 come with 2GB internal memory but this Nokia 6500 only come with 1GB!
Pretty rubbish features ...
r8, please give us more info, we're hungry here. How much did it cost and where did you buy it? Any bugs or strange things you noticed right away? Does the phone heat up after using/calling? Is the video/audio quality good? I bet you can easily watch the Simpsons or something on such a good screen, it's 2", like an iPod nano - quite nice.
Hello.I got this pnone yesterday,and its very good.Its feel like a million dollar phone and its very easy to use.I think its going to bee one of the best selling phones Nokia ever built.
NOKIA are smart...so late because this phone will come whit CHRISTMAS..and everybody will be happy..WE..and...NOKIA
I bet this Nokia model will heat up badly just like any recent Nokia phones!!! Btw, heat up problem is more worse with their metal phones than plastic ones!!! Anyone notice?
"I'm sure Nokia is going to be releasing an improve version of the 6500 classic, just like what they did with 6301 to 6301...
just wait and see.."
Yes, the successor to the candybar 6233 will be based on the 6500 slide specs.
Well if you wait and wait for a "better" phone, you'll never end up buying one...
And why this phone has taken so long to be released (over 5 months) is beyond me, considering - apart from its design - it is nothing special. Just a standard phone (which is what I want) which does everything you want it do (call clarity, reception, texting, communicating, etc) exceptionally well.
If this phone is not released by the second week of October latest, purely out of principle I will wait no longer for this phone and will get something from a different brand.
I blame Nokia's poor marketing for the huge delay in this phone.
well looking at the specs & design,
i think it compares rather favorably with the n6120 classic.
I'm sure Nokia is going to be releasing an improve version of the 6500 classic, just like what they did with 6300 to 6301...
just wait and see..
still, Nokia 6500 classic is one beautiful phone.
Thanks a lot for the exact date of its release. Hope it proves to be right without any more delays. We've waited long enough!
man i am so sorry i went for the nokia 6300, the 6500 classic must be the best device around, it garantees you to make and receive calls pretty much over the whole world.
dont give a damn about features, but very very important are, excellent reception, batterylife and at least quadband and also matures stylish look.
take SE for example, hate the childish looks of it, thats why all my nephews walk around with SE's.
my post was supposed to be sarcastic...
i understand its doesn't have all those specs, but i was pointing out how people moan about phones and what features they dont have.
do you understand now?
I think the phone looks great. and i'm more than happy with the features. not something i would buy, but i can see it selling well.
