James. Make sure you have the lastest version of p c suite on your pc. When you connect the lead to the phone & pc you have have a choice on you phone, i also select pc suite. The first time you connect your pc should pick up your phone & it will take about 3 mins to set up before saying the phone is ready to use. Always make sure when you disconnect you use your "remove software safely" opion in your pc so there is no problems when you want to use again.
Lee. my battery last about 3-4 days but thats just with calls & texting.
The screen is sealed.
Lee. This phone is so much better than the e65. You can set the lock on the phone by setting a time so it will look when still open or after that time when you close the slide down.
I have not had any problems with lagging or cutting of calls.
It is much better built than the e65 with a better camera as well.
I also had a e65 but gave it to my husband cause of the problems you have stated, i am very pleased with this phone.
The only problem i have had is the delay to connect when you open the slide, it takes about 5 seconds before it connects to the call. I have now taken off the automatic connect when sliding open & just press the answer middle button instead.
does the nokia 6500 slider have problems with hanging up phones calls when it wants to like the E65 i have alot of time had the phone loss the call is this the case with the 6500 ??? as i have read a couple of reviews saying its a bad phone to keep hold of the line ????
also is it better built than the e65, does it have a seald screen unlike the e65
what about the slider does it lock the phone and unlock with the slider and does it have a time limit to lock the phone to if you dont use the slider ????
is the battery better than the e65 ??
I saw a 6500s in a Optus store today. Ask how much for it out-right with out a countract. AU$650, what a rip off. I can get it from Singtel in Singapore SG$418. (don't for get currecy conversion too)
is there any site to find free games for 6500 except umnet.com and mobile9.com
Hi everyone, does anybody knows where to find some new skin for the music player and how to add them??
And also how to configure my business card because I didn't find it.
And also how to make the touch "2" a speed dial shortcut because mine is for video mailbox.
all who didn't like 6500s is like a crap people beco'z this phone is not cheap as wat they think but its durable i think! unlike othr phones ther, its all plastik made but 6500s fixed its price of what it is. if u want geater gadgets, 6500s is not an excuse for me.
For review, please view access from one GSArena recommended site:- http://www.mobile-review.com/review/nokia-6500slide-en.shtml
Had the 6500 Slide for a couple of weeks now and really happy.
One problem I have encountered though is when syncing with the PC, particularly contacts with Outlook. It'll sync Ok, but when I go back into contacts in the phone they're there but invisible. Twice I've had to delete them all and reinstall using my old phone. Maybe a software bug.
Anyone else experienced this or know a solution?
