Summary: I highly doubt this phone is a genuine Nokia product. The battery door does not fit properly, the battery fits but the plastic guard on the side opposite the contacts is separated once inserting the battery due to poor fit. This is not nokia quality your used to, it must be some sort of a clone.
Summary: The quality of this Nokia 6300 slide, I was going to have as a souvenir, is completely different from the one used to be when I had it brand new in 2008 which was made not in China. This one looks and feels really crappy.
Excerpt: lasted only 6 months. Problem with the display report from Digicel Samoa Due to the sliding nature the cable can get defective. Not a smart phone for regular use. Picture are not so outstanding with a 3.5MP camera It only has a quality of 2MP camera.
Cons: Not a smart phone for regular use., Problem with the display
Summary: This phone was a gift and was trouble from the beginning, it arrived without the advertised memory card which was sent out later, and it was scuffed on corners despite being new.

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.
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. I wouldnt recomend this phone to any one
Excerpt: Nokia 6500 slide ...don't buy it! I got this mobile phone on contract 18 months ago. I initially got it because it had the features that ticked my boxes. Easy to use, 3.2 mega pixel Camera with a flash, 3G technology enabling video calling ( however i have only had reception once to be able to use...
Excerpt: I am so disappointed that I chose this phone on an 18 month contract. It is so poor!! Let's look at the positives - it makes calls, takes an OK picture and that's probably about it! This phone has been the bane of my life and sometimes I have felt like throwing it out the window.
Excerpt: From personal experience this phone is not as reliable or as sufficient as most Nokia phones. I had many troubles with this phone. It is a very easy phone to use however very unreliable after a while the phone will start to freeze often and struggle at starting up.
