This phone is ok, the only BAD THINGS are that the phone does not lock automatically when you close the phone and also your ringtones/themes will reset now and then as there is a fault with the memery card cradle which causes the memory card to move.. one way to test this is to keep the phone on and remove the back cover not try and access your memory card...Not there?? is it!
I guess the pb whith the resetting of the theme comes from that the latch of the card doesn't close properly if the back cover is a little loose. That is why the phone doesn't recognize the card and reset the theme. So copying your theme,wall paper and ringtone in the phone memory should solve the pb
Shame on Nokia to sell a phone with that pb...
What does the slide cover having to be able to close, have anything to do with what the other guy was asking, he stated that he transferred ringtones and themes to the phone,but the phone doesnt let him change them, they have nothing to do with phones slide cover..
It doesn't matter if the mic sits between the No.4 & 7 keys. You can talk when the slide is closed (the mic is not hidden entirely) because the mic is powerful enough.
that happen to me one way that's been working for me is putting it on the phone memory so far it's keeping not going back to default
hi... i have 256 mb card and when i put it in my phone,it doenst recognise it when i connect to the pc it works, what could be the prblm.

OK Went on nokia europe website & yes there is a software update. I have just updated my 6500 slide from 3.80 version to 4.81 version via the nokia software updater. GREAT STUFF.
I asked this before thatr if we can talk with the slide closed and someone said yes! but i am confused, i jus' checked out another review of this phone, it says the mic is between the '4' and '7' keys of the keypad, so how can we talk with the slide closed? the mic wud be hidden if we close the slide! plz help!
yep , that shud make things easier for prospective buyers like ourselves :)
all nokia 6500slide users, please note the firmeware to 6500slide that have reseting problem and the one that dosen't..for all us to know what to buy! 10ks!
Im with the N73 ME at the moment , love it cause it plays my music well. the camera is decent , pretty good really.
Now , im in love with the looks of the 6500 Slide ,
Here are some of my concerns i'd like to clear out after reading through a list of problems faced by some users:
1- Memory Card : many users complain abt the phone not being able to read the memory card , and for me - i was planning to buy a 4gb microsd card along with the phone cause i listen to loads of music , but wat good would that be if it dont read the memory card.
2- Default Settings - many of them again complain abt this one , someone here said it has something to do with how to fit the backcover onto the handset eliminating any gaps and how that would resolve the issue of the phone switching back to original settings , I would'nt want a phone stuck with resetting itself to something I dont want it to be at , specially WALLPAPERS/RINGTONES.
3-It seems the phone has with a 2.5mm jack on top of it , is it possible to use a seperate set of headphones to listen to track like the N73'S 3.5mm jack remote unit or are you stuck with default Nokia headphones only?
Your positive and negative responses towards the above would mean a lot and accordingly mould my decision in the 6500 Slide purchase.
Cheers for now
