very disappointed

dfbeckers, Ebay
5 August 2010
  • Summary: I bought this phone to replace my current Nokia 6500 slide. Unfortunately, the new phone does not work. The battery is fully charged and it won't turn on. The front sliding piece is on crooked. It did not come in a Nokia box, but in a ML Royal S3588 box, so I am not even sure if it is new as advertised. Also, no software was included. I know how to work this kind of phone because I love the one I already have. I am very disappointed and won't buy from this seller again.

  • Summary: I can barely make a call on this thing without it disconnecting mid call, and I mean 95% of the time this happens, now I just use it for texting and the occasional, miserably slow, single page web search. I am eagerly awaiting the end of this miserable contract so I can finally ditch this terrible phone, a phone which I have owned for 3years now. There is no reason why anybody in their right mind should wish to own or use this phone!
  • Pros: The camera
  • Cons: Everything else

  • Summary: I recently bought this phone and it was a big mistake as the phone wont read any memory cards and the buttons are very slow or you have to press the button a few times and the battery life is not good.

STYLISH BUT VERY SHODDY

Ms. Michelle Surtees, Amazon
8 September 2009
  • Summary: This phone looks very stylish yet do not be fooled looks are very deceiving. I have only ever used Nokia phones up until now. I purchased 3 of the 6500 slide for myself and family and they have been horrendously poor. They freeze so that the phone can not be answered when ringing, data is constantly lost, ring tones change regulary, these are just a few of the problems that we have had.

poor battery life if in non 3G area

me "older but wiser", Amazon
17 August 2009
  • Summary: This phone is good if you live in a 3G area. I do not and so, my phone is constantly trying to find one which wears the battery down. when I took it to my local network provider (3 - in case you are wondering), the salesperson tool one look and knew exactly what the problem was - there's no way of turning off the 3G search facility. A "design flaw" as he called it. No wonder it was free on my tariff!

Doesn't even deserved one star

C. McCrorie, Amazon
15 January 2009
  • Summary: This phone is probably the worst phone I have ever encountered. First of all it messed up a simple transfer of my contacts from the sim card to phone, losing many of them. Its camera function is as slow as a week in the jail. It forgets contacts names when you receive a text so you have to look through your contacts to know who's actually texting you!!!

  • Summary: I have had bad phones before, but this was such a disappointment! So in the short hand, its battery lasts about a day MAX, its heavy, crashes, slow and the interfence isnt as great as the Sony's phones. However it looks really good and has a really good camera. I would avoid unless you like you to near a pug socket for most of the day!
  • Pros: The way it looks.
  • Cons: The shocking battery and weight.

Garbage!

Mr Funt, Amazon
1 August 2008
  • Summary: If you have any desire to buy this phone please take my advice and DON'T. Mine constantly resets the ringtone and wallpaper picture unless it's saved to the phone rather than the memory card. When you flip the slider up the buttons very often decide not to work for anything up to 2 mins. The battery life is hurrendous, I have to charge it every night and I don't phone use my heavily at all.
