I have had this phone for 10 weeks, in the beginnig it was fine, then when i really started to use it, i mean constant texts and phone calls, it would randomly freeze, shut down and restart. I upgraded the software, now it is not so bad but yes it does kick out your selected ringtone to play that crappy nokia ringtone.
Hi all, having just got the 6500 slide on the orange network, i was quite alarmed to read the poor reviews about this phone.
Could anyone tell me if they've had any feedback from nokia, and what they are doing to resolve the problems? cheers
The keypad does get scratched, but only very slightly and it's not noticeable unless looking at it from a certain angle. My 7 and 8 buttons are slightly scratched but that's it. It's certainly nothing like some people have described - maybe the slide mechanism varies from handset to handset? Mine is very smooth and solid. I absolutely love this phone. I've had it three weeks now and it's amazing. The camera takes great pics, though obviously it can't rival my 12mp Kodak camera! But it's perfect for taking a quick snap when you're out and about.I intend to keep this phone for a long time to come.
Do they have Nokia N73ME (Music Edition) on this website? Please help I tried searching but couldn't find. Wanted to see the other differences with N73 except for better music.
what the differences between 6500 slide and 6300 beside the design, 3.2mp and 3g? nothing else. i paid double the 6300 price and what i get? already get rid of it but kept the 6300. wasting my money only.
Just bought this phone like two days ago..it was a nice and sleek phone..so far no major problems..anw i did have the prob of my tone being switch back to Nokia Tune..but i think this is becos we changed our themes and the tone wud auto switch back..cos last time heard from my fren who told me not to change the theme if not the tune wud change to default again..but i nt very sure, maybe u all can try changing ur theme and see if the tone wud change back to default anot..hope this wud help =))
Yet another Nokia which doesnt work. I used to love Nokias, however after owning the woeful 6288, and now this thing which constantly freezes and struggles to do anything, i will steer clear of all nokias. Even my friends who have the E65 and N95 have problems. Nokia have going to sh*t.
after using it for about a month i find that it hangs sometimes & it's web browse is not working as well as expected.u can't move around a webpage, even 6230i is better in this sense..
i want to buy 6500 slide but i want to know if i can download wallpapers and themes or not
please some body replay me
thank u all

To all users looking to buy this phone,
If you guys have searched through these piles of comments and reviews about this phone, you'll see most of them are negative. But to tell you the truth, I own this phone now. It's been a week, and none of the problems previously mentioned by other users bothers me. My set is perfect. I think you need to found forums that belong to YOUR OWN COUNTRY. This is due to different batches and different places of manufacture. Please find out more about this phone from those forums if you're serious about this phone - It's a really great phone.
to MJ :
It's there. Go to camera, press options, scroll all the way down and press settings, scroll down and you'll see camera sounds. Press select to turn it off.
Hi, im highly impressed by your product but infact this is another kind of jin that is th Nokia 6500slide.
Keep it up.
hi...i bought it last week and its been working great except for one small thing....though i set a preferred song as the ring tone it automatically switches over to the Nokia tune after some time by its own...dont know why and how this happens...another thing i noticed not only in mine but another nokia model is that the difference in the time we recieve and the display one is huge like some 5 or 6 hours gap...
