the problem with my phone is with the signal strength. Too often i encounter this problem `SIM CARD REGISTRATION FAILED` Then i have to remove my sim card and reinsert again, sometimes 2-3 times. The signal strengh is also very poor (only 50% compared to my previous phone Nokia 6680). i bought this phone in Muar (i`m living in Johor Bahru) on 13.01.2008. Please advise me. Thank You.

the keypad easily gets scrathes that's why it's made out of rubber! that's my problem
@ Apache , do you care if the phone does not multi talk , for me having my mp3 playing and me able to do other things is good enough.
My 6500-s is giving me problem that whenever network goes off than only it comes after switch off the mobile and again switch on. so i have do this lot of times also hang daily atleast 2-3 times.I have already upgrade the software 4.00something but still no improvement. Can anybody help me out what should i do for that
Im thinking of getting this beauty this week...heard that the 6500 doesn't support the multi tasking as it comes under "S40"...Is it that important that we must have multi tasking on the mobile?...i previouly had SE w810i which had multi tasking and was very happy with that...plz help im confused a bit...should i laeve the multi tasking facility for the set of features this offer when compared to my w810i...i read all the reviews and quite happy with them...but couldn't decide strongly whether to go for it or not...thanks in advance...
What do you all mean by scratches on the keypad? How come i havent had a problem like that? Mine is more rubbery and smooth when sliding down the phone rather than stiff and hard...
my phone (nokia 6500 ) as been fine ther is scratches on the kepad but thats about it!
To my knowledge s40 doesnt support office.
And this should apply for the 5th edition as well i reckon.
Some handsets have the keypad scratchind possibly due to 2 reasons.
1)Excessive force used to slide it up
2)The gap between the top(slide) and the base(keypad) is less causing friction between the two. Clearly this is a manufacturing defect which has affected quite a number of people out there. I suggest you just walk right to a Nokia Service Center and ask them for a replacement or ask them to resolve the issue right there..
hi...can we install office suite (if .jar or .sis file is availble)into this. Does the OS support this feature.do reply...thanks in advance.
@ E , when we mean delay we mean delay while answering a call using the "use slide to answer call" feature rather than hitting the "call" key without opening the slide to answer a call
So when you set the phone to answer calls by pushing up the slide the phone will still ring for 2-3 seconds before the call actually begins.
So when you slide it up towards you're ear u'll have it still ringing for 2-3 odd seconds.
I dont use the slide up to answer a call so I really dont care ;)
I got this phone for my wife a few weeks ago and here are the comments;
1. No scratches on the keypad whatsoever, so I guess it's a mechanism problem, probably caused by the phone falling down or was hit hard.
2. Yes, there's a bit of a delay in the keypad, specially that my wife is a bit fast when using the phone and in SMS, but it's no so often. I still have the 4.80 firmware that came with it, I'll upgrade and see what happens.
3. The theme reset issue... My wife had a picture of our kids as a wallpaper, and another one as a screensaver. Whenever the phone falls or even slightly hit, both the wallpaper and screen saver return to the default.
After some quick troubleshooting, I figured out that the problem is because of the memore card, whenever the phone gets hit the memore card probably loses contact with the phone, which in turn resets the theme.
Solution: I put the wallpaper and the screensaver pictures on the phone memory and not the memore card, which worked out great so far.
We're using the ringtones that came with the phone, so if anyone's also getting the ringtone reset, put the music file on the phone memory as well.
Hope that helps...
Hi, i've just read over all the comments that other users have made. However i do not find them relevant to my 6500 slide. I have had it for a week now, and have not encounted any scratches on my phone or any other problems with it so far.. I do want to ask one question though that has got my attention, when some people mentioned the delay in answering their phones or whatever what were you exactly referring to? If someone can please fill me in i'd appreciate it. Thanking you in advance for your reply...
Can you use wap on this phone?How dou download themes &wallpapersalsohow do i update my firmware software? Thanks
Yes there is a delay , However I have updated my phone to 4.84 .. no delay while answering with the slide anymore.
This particular problem has been resolved by f/w 4.84
Im thinking of buying the nokia 6500 slide but i hear that there is a deplay on the keypad and im wondering if this is true please replay back
I'm thinking of buying this mobile tomorrow...hey can any one tell me whether office applications can be installed on to this(incase if jar or sis file is available for office suite)...i mostly require word n power point presentations to be viewed on the mobile.. .thank u in advance
