Nokia 6500 slide Review
The organizer includes the following: calendar, to-do list, notes, аlarm clock, stopwatch, countdown timer and calculator. The alarm clock offers the following settings: alarm time, alarm tone and snooze time out, and except for a single alarm, you can set the phone on an alarm, which goes off on certain days of the week. The calendar can be viewed by months and weeks, as you can add new notes with options for meeting, call, Birthday, memo and reminder. You have at your disposal also a standard, loan and scientific calculator. The rest of the organizer’s options are the standard ones and are not going to be discussed.
You can use voice commands for some of the functions, as well as a voice setting for the contacts in the phonebook. For this purpose it is not necessary to record them with your own voice because the text can be recognized as speech and it is necessary only to press and hold the lower part of the volume key in order to make the voice settings/commands active.
Nokia 6500 slide have 30 MB internal memory and additional microSD slot supporting up to 4GB cards.
The messaging menu is exactly what you can expect from Nokia. T9 helps you enter text faster and there are a few templates by default in the phone. You can create text, multimedia, flash and audio messages. Additional features are Instant Messaging and Email Client.
Nokia 6500 slider is a quad band GSM (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and dual band UMTS (850/2100 MHz), which allows for its usage worldwide. Our readers in the USA will be glad to learn that they will be able to make use of it in 2G as well as in 3G networks – an advantage to be appreciated by many.
The internet browser supports HTML/ XHTML and WAP 2.0. A status bar is being displayed at the lower part of the screen during download. It shows the percentage of current page loading – a very convenient extra, especially when trying to acquire content with plenty of information. We tried to load www.phonearena.com but the browser couldn’t visualize the page correctly: pictures were arranged in a way, different from the real one. Had we not known how our site looked, we would never have got on the right track and been able to understand which item was after which.
For local connectivity you can use both the Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR and the microUSB port. The transfer speed via Bluetooth can actually be as high as 75 KB/sec, which means that recording a 7 MB song will take about a minute and a half.

This phone is ok, the only BAD THINGS are that the phone does not lock automatically when you close the phone and also your ringtones/themes will reset now and then as there is a fault with the memery card cradle which causes the memory card to move.. one way to test this is to keep the phone on and remove the back cover not try and access your memory card...Not there?? is it!
There is no fault. Did you actually READ the review? The phone is designed to cut off access to the memory card when the back is open (to prevent data loss.) Not that there is any reason to take the back off with the phone on other than to change the memory card.
No InComing Speech
Its a decent phone. 1st commenter, 1) No, you can't fast forward or rewind, 2)Yes, 3)No, 4)Novelty, somewhat useful, but disappointing. The sound lacked ANY low end whatsoever. It could be just my phone, or my cable, but my experience is dampened by poor sound output. No good for music video's, music in general, and video's may lack some ommph they may otherwise have. 2nd commenter. I know of the problem you talk about. If you look around the camera hole from the inside of the back cover, you will see some metal that pokes out. Notice how it contacts some metal on the phone itself, look where it would touch if the cover was on. You can move the metal part a bit using your fingernail so its more likely to contact the phone. I promise you will have to set ringtones less often.
/|\ It also has a good quality camera, TV Out displays your pics in the perfect way to show off the quality of the pics and videos you can | take. I find the performance a little on the slow side, but very usable. Its the phone of envy of my friends, they all say hiptop till they see this! Very solid construction, but a clear/silicon/leather case is recommended as little scuffs do build up and become much more noticeable. Whip it out of its case when going somewhere to show off, you'll thank yourself for protecting it.
i own 1 of these. 1. it does fast forward and rewind videos. just press and hold the directional button. 2. u can change the backlight time. 3. it does auto lock the phone. 4. u wan set the time it takes for the phone to sleep. 5. no, there is not problem with the memory cradle. the first batch had some issue but not after that. 5. mp3 ringtones? this baby has incoming call video! not that i think that's a practical thing to do but it is a cool thing to have. I am fully satisfied with the phone. before buying it, i was afraid it wouldn't meet my expectations as i was using a PDA phone before it. Now i'm a very happy owner... it's stylish, it's slick, it's stainless steel!!! sounds great for having 1 spealer. the size is just nice. The only problem is i can't use the secondary camera in front to take pictures. it's only for video calls.
