I've just purchased this mobile in black through eBay and i love it. I had a lot of trouble taking the back cover off so got my friend to take it off for me, he struggled abit too but managed to take it off after 5 mins or so. You have to be careful while trying to slide it off because pressing too hard did do a little damage to the plastic back. The 6500 is very similar to the 6300 although there is no volume button on the side, no power button on top and the only way to charge it is through a usb cord. They supply you with two, one for the wall and one through the computer. i'm only using the computer usb to charge it up.
If you want it for the looks ( the same reason why i got it) then you'd love it but if you expect more features then i'd say just stick to the 6300. Both work exactly the same.
That's my opinion.
Because they offer such "basic" services for such high amounts of money and the customer support is frustrating because they outsource to the CarPhoneWarehouse. And a 2-3 day delay on your account usage is painfully unnaceptable as we enter the 21st Century too.
£35 for a monthly contract on O2 - and all it allows you to do is send txts and call people - for the same price, you can get a T-Mobile contract which includes MMS into your allowance, an 'always on' internet connection through your phone, you can actually speak to someone at T-Mobile and you can get an up-to-the-minute account update, like ALL of the other operators, apart from - you've guessed it - O2.
That's why I don't like O2 - the service they offer is very, very basic, it's frustrating and it offers very poor value for money.
And before anyone mentions it - reception is complete balls when it comes to choosing between operators these days. Mobile phone masts are everywhere and these days, if there are no masts in a particular area for your operator, your phone will automatically switch to the nearest anyway.
So it boils down to services offered - and cost. And O2 is very poor on both fronts. Why do you think they lapped up the iPhone and Vodaafone - a far bigger company - pulled out?
Becuase O2 like ripping their customers off with horrendously bad value contracts, with substandard services (the iPhone isn't even 3G, etc).
So it was a perfect match then...
Available on o2 website today - I have no axe to grind one way or the other, but out of interest why is o2 so bad?
saw an advert for this last night on ITV2. does anyone know when this will be hitting the stores? it must be close now - nokia have longed it out enough!
this phone is available from the carphone warehouse number 80 high street kensington, its on order, next day delivery
does this fone have radio?
plz give me an accurate reply anybody.
I went to the Carphone Warehouse on Kensington High Street today as someone below recommended - but they didn't have any in stock.
This phone is currently available on O2 - who are quite possibly one of the worst operators out there.
It is also currnetly avaialble (through Carphonewarehouse) on Virgin Mobile, which has painfully stingy contracts, the value of which is almost as much of a rip-off as Vodafone.
T-Mobile easily do the most appealing contracts with their Web n Walk service, although the 6500 will not be available on T-Mobile until the middle of next week.
Hopefully it will be released on Three as well - they also do some excellent contracts.
The only other thing will be making sure this phone is still in stock - it has already sold out from most dealers, which is probably due more to limtied numbers, rather than a huge rush to buy the phone.
availabe from the carphone warehouse in kensington high street 80, london. just got myself one on contract
hi...i was told tht the phone has been released in the market....its worth our money...
Your opinion is like aids, no one wants it.....
Anyone noticed the ad's about this handset?. Nokia seem to be going all out for it which is good. Even made the back page of our internal mag here at Vodafone.
Just seems so long we have been waiting for this now!
Can someone tell me whether or not this phone actually has a2dp? I've read several reviews that say it doesn't, while the specs here say it does.
O2 have 6500 classic in stock. I ordered mine today. Should be here in morning. I get my phones from O2 direct, not from website or shop.
This phone was released on Monday (1 October) in the UK - I am assuming it will have been released throughout Europe by now as well.
You cannot buy it direct from the operators yet - it is only the distributors (online websites, mobile retailers) which currently stock the phone.
Operator supply (i.e. direct from Vodafone, T-Mobile, etc) will begin earliest of this Friday, but probably not properly until the 10 October.
helloooo nokia... you are sleeping or what we are on October and the phone dont released where is the phone in the market???!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
