best phone i have ever had, the memory is next to nothing, i will never get another phone its everything i need
realy i have this mopile from 4 monthes ago and i didn't get any proplem with it till now ..it's just frezzed one time
I have posted a little bit in the comments, which is basically what I am going to say now: great phone, a few OS troubles, and a little hard to read in sunlight. Other than that I don't have too much troubles with it. Just for the sake of it, here is a little tech info about my current situation with the phone:
Firmware Version 7.12
I am located in Australia (it seems to make a difference, I think)
Phone is currently branded (I dislike this very much)
I would LOVE to hear from anyone who has managed to get the OS issues (freezing on slide, music track name won't change) fixed up, especially in Australia, and also anyone who has been able to debrand the phone. Also I would like information regarding to any firmware updates available (refer to last post), I checked last month, but I may need to check very soon.
Apologies if this is posted in the wrong spot, or these questions have been answered, but 170+ pages is a little much, lol.

Iv had this phone for just over 4 months and it keeps resetting on its own... even if i leave it over night. I can come back in the morning the ringtone will be set to default and my background will be set to a blank screen..... this is irritating me endless cause it does it on a daily basis. has anyone experienced this before iv tried different memory cards and it still does it even when i put the images and songs on the phone memory it still does it.... HELP PLEASE...otherwise I love this phone..... great clear call quality and excellent battery life
i had this phone for less than 12 months and i had to send it away for the same reoccuring problem each time. every time i recieved it back, a month later it would start playing up again. the keypay would freeze and i wouldnt be able to use it, the screen display would short cut and turn off constantly and the memory card slot would not read the memory card. i can say quite honestly it was the worst decision i have ever made with a phone. i was later told that many 6500 slides were having the same problems. im glad that i got rid of it. i now have a i900 and its the best, it truely is an all in one phone.
