dude the phone is so awesome...mine is the hungary made one..never had a problem with it except for the phones general short battery life. otherwise its really awesome..especially the camera..and it is a very sexy phone
i had this phs for 1 year and i dropped it many times never had a problem
I love this phone! Can you use a 4GB SD card for this or the maximum is 2GB?
Over a year on this device continues to set the standards for build quality in this market segment. Add to that that it has a very competent camera on board and a generous feature set and it is easy to See why its successors, the 6600 slide and the new 'I' version have had a difficult time improving on this excellent fashion feature device. Who needs to spend 10 times on a Vertu when you can have this type of assembly quality and feature set on a device that is less than £200? Recommended if you can still get hold of one and don't require wi fi.

donkey, 24 Nov 2009Try updating your firmware but back up all your contacts on your sim and save all photos and g... moreI did update me firmware and since then had even more issues 3 have advise there was a software problem and for this reason they no longer offer this phone.
I am looking at getting the Ericsson C903 or Blackberry Curve just not sure which is better.
Danny, 04 Dec 2009I had many nokias, starting from 5510. None of them didn't get warm or hot during usage. And ... moreMy 6500 slide don't become hot after 5,10,15 min etc talked on him.Maybe it is a problem with yours.
Been using this phone for almost 2 yrs. Battery-excellent. Camera - very clear, photos realistic. It's pretty handy. Good video coverage. However, i got a problem with the earpiece. I can't clearly hear the voice of the other person but when using the headset, voice in the other line is good. I can also store loads of pix and songs. Overall assessment of this unit - very good!
I had many nokias, starting from 5510. None of them didn't get warm or hot during usage. And it doesn't matter if it's slide or not, Nokia 6500 always become very hot after 3-5 minutes of conversation. Does anyone know WHY?
Does this phone have white screen of death when sliding up the phone after this phone has been used for quite sometime, just like Nokia 6111 or Nokia 6280?
Anonymous, 30 Nov 2009I can't use mms I keep getting error messages to check my settings. Can anyone help me?Most probably because you havent turned on mms service from your operator. you consult your network operator and tell them your phone model and they will send you a text with the mms, web and wap settings. save them and your done.
