I currently have the well overrated N96. Excellent phone but a poor battery which requires charging every day. Avoid the N96 at all costs unless you don't mind charging it every night. As for this phone, I had it and it is excellent. Fair enough its not a trophy girlfriend like the Nokia Tube, Blackberry Storm etc but it is reliable with an excellent battery. For basic functions, it will be more than sufficient.
JKHF, 30 Dec 2008i've had this phone for about 4 months now..in black.
i have 2 problems with this phone...and... moreHi...i m also using this fone from last six months and didnt face any problem wid this set.
For ur first problem regarding ring tone....just open the back cover of ur fone and reinsert the m/m card...it is not properly inserted.
and for ur second problem regarding video camera duration....Chk the setting of videa application and set the Image/Videostorage as Memory card....it might be set as phone storage....as i m able to make longer videos.
can any1 inform me that is there any diff between microSD and microSDHC. And whether microSDHC will be supported by Nokia 6500 slide? its important. please let me know ASAP.

i have 2 problems with this phone...and its that the ringtone keeps changing back to the original settings and i have to keep on changing it back to the ones i want. and also the video camera..it only records 19 seconds...like seriously...my old phone (sony ericsson k510i) had 23mb and it could record forever! other than that..i think its an okay phone.
nokia 6500 slide the phone is crap iv had nothing but problems with it what a waste of money
What you said about the phone rebooting on its own for no apparent reason is entirely true! Especially when using the radio feature. Wtf. Its ridiculous. . . But on the other hand. . When it works. Its works amazing. Its everything you wanted in a phone 3years ago! Lol. ;) an thats my honest to god opinion!
My husbaand and I got the same phone from 3 mobile. Nothing but trouble, short battery life, missed calls, shutting off mid call and diverting during calls, messages not being sent, false voicemail alerts, switching off at random etc. 3 replaced my husband's phone with another one, same model, same problems. Mine has been repaired 3 times and sent back to 3 mobile 4 times, the last time I was told that there was no fault with the phone. They have now replaced my husband's phone with another Nokia - different model - and no problems since. I am still waiting for a new phone from them. The worse thing about it was that my father was seriously ill in hospital and very often my mother couldn't contact me when needed. In fact the night he died my mother was trying for 20 minutes before she could let me know.

I've had mine since february. your background and ringtones will change back to original settings if they are saved on the memory card as the memory card in the back is loose. I had to send mine away for repair 3 times before thi got fixed but also i have to save them on phone memory. i wouldnt reccommend this phone to anyone.
