I have just sent off my 2nd 6500 nokia for repair and that's just in a space of 5 months! I must be really unlucky with this model, because both handsets have the same problems... just pushing the battery cover button, immediately changes my wallpaper setting! apparently, the manufacturers haven't heard of this complaint before, so I'm curious if anyone else has had the same problem!?
amazing fone sum ppl dont kno how to use this fone well so theryre complaining about it i have 8 gb mem crd no problems voice is good atleast btr then n95
It looks that it will rock the telecommunication indutry and I cannot wait to have mine. It is only a matter of few days before I own one. With Nokia,the people will forever remain conneceted to each other.
obviously G900. It has a better camera and have wifi and gps touch screen. Feature wise way better than 6500s. But if you want to go for style and come back a bit on features then go for this one or there are a lot of phone out there which have style and features.

Did your phone slow down? Here are some tips.
The available phone memory is 21MB. Don't use it much. Let atleast 15MB of it be free. Use Memory Card to save data. Don't use a Memory Case above 4GB. It makes the phone unstable and prone to hang. I have a solution for those who need more memory space than 4GB. I would advise you to keep 3 cards of 2GB each. Keep your data divided. You can store music, videos, games,etc. in one and your camera photos and videos in another and your personal data in the 3rd one. Using large memory cards eats up the phone RAM and cause it to slow down. Don't try to multitask as it isn't a multitasking device. It supports minimum multitasking so avoid listening to music while gaming. Don't use phone when connected to PC. Use the latest PC SUITE which supports messaging through keyboard and calls through PC speakers and mics. Never close media player while playing videos. First stop the video and then exit.
AVOID GPRS DOWNLOADS OR OTHER APPLICATIONS THAT USE GPRS. This phone isn't a symbian device and doesn't have anti-virus software. Download through desktop browser. Regularly scan your MMC for viruses using your PC. Connect your phone using data cable and select 'DATA STORAGE'. Then scan the Memory Card. If you don't have any data saved in phone memory, then, i advise you to backup your phone data from 'settings>sync and backup' and restore your phone.>settings>restore settings>restore all. After restoring, goto your memory card and restore the backup saved earlier. This ensures that no virus enters your phone memory as it can't be scanned through PC.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970The ringtone problem gets solved by following there steps:
1. Copy the ringtone from MMC to phone
2. Goto profiles and select this ringtone
Now, even if your MMC keeps displacing, your ringtone will not turn back to Nokia Tune.
Advice: save changes to 'General' profile as it is the default profile.
The battery backup of the phone is awesome. You can watch videos for continuous 8 hours. I watched two movies in mp4 format and on full screen. The sound quality is nice and if you like audio, you can buy the nokia stereo bluetooth speakers MD-6W. Pocket sized powerfull and attractive speakers with awesome bluetooth music streaming. The camera is awesome too with a nice auto focus and Carl Zeiss optics. The screen is a TFT with 16.7M colours. The phone supports s40v5 and s60v3 java games (.jar). 3D games run faster than before with the new software version 8.3. The overall performance is an 8 on 10. However, in certain areas such as music player and camera it is far better than other nokia s40 phones. The auto focus is much better and easier than in n73. The dual LED flash adds to the picture quality however, it doesn't operate while recording videos. The phone supports a 2.1" 240x320 display which is better than in 5610 which has a 2" display. The phone supports downloadable themes, games and wallpapers. The phone also supports WMA & M4U file formats. With nokia PC SUITE, one can sync data, contacts, messages and even games and applications very easily. The TV OUT is an exciting new feature. The complete phone UI can be viewed on a big TV screen. Full screen video and photo display on TV is really an enjoyable experience. I play games installed on my phone on the LCD television. The audio experience becomes manifolds by using an audio converter jack which can be used to connect 3.5audio sockets, such as that of iPOD headphones, PC speakers or even 2.1 home theatre system. The audio output is fantastic using such ports. If you don't know where to get games, themes, ringtones, wallpapers, etc., you must visit Zedge.com with your desktop browser. The phone is a powerful entertainment device and a cool handset for youngsters. My personal experience has been great with this phone. Earlier i had an n73 and now i have 6500 and i have felt it many times better than the former although in terms of audio n73 is unbeatable
Surendra..., 23 Oct 2008Hi...if they release any new software then it is better to update ur software, it speed up the... moreOne might find problems but otherwise, the phone is not bad. I bought it some time ago, and it isn't giving me a hard time. The camera is pretty good and sound is probably better than SE's cyber shot phones. Wired Headset in retail package isn't too good but its performance is awesome while using headset of 6110 Navigator, HS-42. The silver one is better than black. Further, the reboot problem gets solved with the latest software 8.3. The slide mechanism causes scratches on keypad but otherwise it's smooth. The auto focus feature is superb. Its better than n73 or other n series. Audio equalizer is really effective and the stereo widening feature adds a 3d echo to the audio quality. According to me, this phone is good to buy for the ones who want a cool phone with nice camera and good audio experience. Ideal choice for youth who are cell phone freaks. My personal experience has been good and i hope you find it cool too. I prefer the silver one over black as it is smarter than the latter.
Heath, 26 Oct 2008people please avoid this phone!!! its got the spitting image of a samsung u700 heaps of prob... moreTotally agree with the comments about this phone. COnstantly changes back to Nokia ringtone and freezes. Nokia is aware of the problem with the ringtones but are unable to say how to correct it. Very frustrating. Was told this was a good phone, but its not so dont touch it.
