No wonder this is one of the nokia's flagship. Good design along with the cool stainless steel casing. The form factor and the size (esp. thickness) is just above average. Even when people said that Nokia is bad at camera, this fone is refusing that. This is the best nokia's camera i've ever seen. Just to let you know, the fone is a bit blue (flourescent) regarding to camera auto white balance. As long as you put your pictures inside the camera, it will be okay but i'm not sure when you put it outside. 3G is okay and the screen size and the sliding things is cool. Nice to have for sleek and slender phone..
after my nokia N70 for 1 year use, here it is a 6500 slide. what i was fond of buying this stainless casing phone was, its a user friendly phone, easy to access menu, only the needed operations was there.
what i dont like about it..lacks of phone memory. and i cant figure out how to use the secondary camera to be used as phone cam.
still better than my previous one.
next stop buying a 5800 express.
kuppi, 26 Nov 2008Does anyone know how to go to offline mode? Does the offline mode exsist in 6500 slide? and if... moreTo get into off-line mode just select the "Flight" profile. And, the effect is that it turns off all transmissions from the phone - you can't make or receive calls, can't send or receive texts and the Bluetooth is turned off. However, the FM radio, Music Player, Organizer functions, and all other apps that don't require outside transmissions still work.
All this stuff is listed in the manual, by the way. So, please read it.

Bill, 25 Nov 2008According to the official Nokia specs this phone only supports MicroSD or MicroSDHC up to 4GB.... moreDamien, it seems that while the phone's software will only 'see' the first 4 GB of an 8 GB MicroSDHC card in the "Memory Status", I read a report from someone on the Nokia Support Forum that the phone can indeed read/write an 8 GB card just fine.
The person reported that he has 6 GB of music on an 8 GB MicroSDHC card, and the Music Player handles it just fine.
If you do decide to get an 8 GB MicroSDHC card, I'd recommend getting at least a Class 4 (4 MB/s write) one as it will read/write faster than a Class 2 (2 MB/s write).
Damian, 24 Nov 2008I have this phone,i have a 1gb memory card and i see here cause the phone support a 8gb memory... moreAccording to the official Nokia specs this phone only supports MicroSD or MicroSDHC up to 4GB. I haven't tried an 8 GB card in my phone. Therefore, I don't know if it will work.
I bought 2 Adata 4GB MicroSDHC Class 6 cards for my phone and they work fine. Plus, they were inexpensive ($20 NZ) and fast (15 MB/s read, 9 MB/s write).
I've seen reports around the Net that state if one uses an 8GB card the phone will only 'see' the first 4GB.
Anonymous, 23 Nov 2008Anything new on the new firmware 8.30? I don't know even though it's running on my phone. Nokia doesn't seem to release changelogs to the public.
