*Edit of part of previous post*
It should be "question", not "questino", sorry about that.
Also, how and where can i get v9.40?!?! *very irate expression on face*
I also heard about spoofing of phone model, what is this, how badly can it screw with my phone, and is it worth it? Can it also debrand my phone? (I really don't want to send my phone to Nokia with out a proof of purchase, I really don't!)
joanna, 16 Jan 2009i need a software upgrade on 6500slide.Can i do a software upgrade by myself insted of sending... moreYes, you can update the software (or firmware) on your phone yourself, if you are confident enough. All you need is Nokia PC Suite and Nokia Software Updater (NSU) installed on your PC or Mac, and a data cable compatable with the 6500s. Just conect the phone accordingly, run NSU, follow the prompts and away you go. For further help or information, I recommend cheking out your local Nokia website, or visit the Help menu in NSU. DO NOT try this if you aren not 100% confident, as any malfunction in the update process can render the phone unuseable, and may not be repairable (even by Nokia).
Always check with the manufacturer (in this case Nokia) if you are unsure about this process in part or as a whole, as I will not be responsible for any fault that occurs from reading this, or from any misunderstanding of the instructions given either from the answer to your questino, or advice from Nokia itself.
Thank you and have a nice day =)

i bought and am in Ghana Africa..i can't find any software to decode it so please help me
i recetly bought 6500 slide but now i am fearful after read all above opinionz.but i'm using it from last 3 months and it is working awesome.
This fone is the worst Nokia ever made. The memory card is in but the fone wont read it. i had it repaired, after a few hours from repair it wont reead the card again, unless i press really hard on the battery cover. how can i listen to mp3s from my memory card and relax when i have to constantly press on the back cover.
my opinion on this fone ls simply POOR DESIGN. my old 6630 was more durable and stable than this fone. i regret so much trading it in for this useless piece of s*it fone. waste of money.

Or try getting it reflash. I know you have said that you have had it repair quite sometime over. But nokia don't always fix it straight away. or sometimes never. My one works great how ever it sometimes flashes the screen and just refreshes back to the last menu i was on.. quite a crazy problem but I hope it's not going to continue.
This phone is great. The build is quite solid, with great keypads. the camera button on the side is pressure sensitive for the right focus. Also this phone has a great camera too, as listed above Carl Zeiss lens. also it's a 3.2MP camera not 3.1MP. just a short review... =]
Donna, 13 Jan 2009yes it has...tnx! do u own a Nokia 6500 slide ph0ne??

jonathan valejo, 01 Jan 2009this phone sometimes resets i just bought it 2days agoIf you can, take it back and get another phone. The problem will never end, even after it has been repaired many times.
I bought this phone after years of neglecting Nokia due to their many recurring faults. I should have kept neglecting Nokia.
This phone resets itself all the time, the ring tones, the screensavers, wallpapers, clock, you name it, it happens. The alarm doesnt work either half the time, my bosses are pleased with that ;) the buttons dont always register, takes a while of pressing the button to get it to work. The voice clarity is pathetic. it never works, even though it is on. It seems that everytime I call someone, no matter where I am and how much reception I have, they find it hard to hear me, also, the reception is not good. It barely works. I could be standing under a phone tower and it would work only sometimes.
I have had this phone put into repair too many times. It is not worth the purchase. Save your money and buy a phone that gives you value for money.
It doesnt seem to have a lot of memory either. After deleting all the crappy apps and stuff that come with this phone, still not enough, but, you can buy the memory, that is a bonus.
So, all in all, don't buy the phone. It really is no good. Please buy something that works. I am really disappointed in this buy and have decided to go back to my old trusty samsung. Wish I read the review before I bought it :(
me, 12 Jan 2009I updated to v9.40 (10-11-08) yesterday. Goooood.How did you upgrade to firmware 9.40? I tried NSU but it showed only 8.30 is available. Need your help Thanks.
How can I update to firmware 9.40? I checked NSU but it showed only version 8.30 is available.
I am really dissapointed in the reviews as i fell in love wiv this phone as soon as i set ees on it, still haven't got it. such a shame as it's beautiful n feels nice in ur hand n i love the keypad, the only thing that puts me off is no camera lens cover to protect it which always puts me off wiv phones. i'm glad i read all the reviews but just wish there was more gud than bad as i really wanted this phone, oh well looks like i'll b goin wiv samsung soul which i also fell 4 x
