is this really a good phone. . ? im planning to buy a new one even if it is a secondhand . . though
My 6500 slide has'nt really been able to cope with a memory card larger than 1gb,it slows down considerably and i'm hoping there's a solution.
If everyone's problem is memory, then Nokia should avoid it. if one person has a memory problem its different from millions. we should try Bardock's theory and stop blaming the past. I just lost my memory card because inconsistent data access but I'll move on. if u don't tell anyone about ur problem when using ur phone in public, u get a credit.
as a potential buyer of this handset anybody can get confused with the various opinions mentioned... all i can say here is that in the past 20+ months i have had this hadnset, i did not face any problems... on the exactly opposite side, we have few unhappy customers... SO IN SHORT THIS IS JUST A GOOD PHONE WITH FEW LIMITATIONS (PURELY BECUASE OF THE TIME IT WAS RELEASED AND THE TARGET CUSTOMERS)... now its ur decision...
About memory card reading (FACTORY PROBLEM) SOLUTION; at the back of the phone there is a small wire between the camera and memory card. In order to read memory card that wire needs to be pushed down. It was meant to be done by the tip of rear cover, but it obviously isn't working. Son what should you do? Put some small piece paper on that wire, so it could be pushed down, and then put the rear cover back on. MAKE SURE THAT PIECE OF PAPER IS SOMEHOW FIXED SO IT CAN'T MOVE, NOT EVEN A MILIMETER.
I'm a phone dealer and I've had many of these phones (some of them were brand new) , and they all had the same problem that were fixed this same way.
If you want to have this just for looks, then its great but but in all other sense its waste of money,
I changed its LCD twice within 6 months of purchage, costing extra 4000 bucks.
Sophisticated with no speciality.
Very pathetic phone..
From day 1 the issues with memory card not showing started.
Keypad lock wont open fr sometime, sometimes..
phone hangs like hell, reminds me of "hang till death"
and yesterday it dieds all of a sudden..S40 Software sucks bigg time..
I love my Nokia 6500 phone because its quality much better than other phones. Features in Nokia are maximum than price but features in other phones are minimum than price. Therefore i like NOKIA PHONES.....
d phone is presentable but... memory, java, calculator problems. i've used it for 2yrs, i only changed the flex once. i flash it today with v8.3, java and memory problem solve. i'll use a java calculator.

"Dont listen to the good reviews about this phone cause they are wrong.
Sorry to all those people out there who love this phone, you obviously hav'nt worked this phone enough yet to reveal its flaws yet, or you are just lucky to get the rare good one. Either way, you are wrong! All the bad things you read about this phone are true, and there are more bad reviews than good ones, so theres a good chance your gona get a bad one."
HOW CAN YOU U PUSH UR OPINION / BAD LUCK ON OTHERS???
i have been using this phone for 2 years and it easy to use for both young abd old , big up 6500
