    Thanks so much for your time, but I'm sorry to say this didn't help.
    This model is slide...I looked at back cover and haven't noticed any trigger...
    But thanks very much anyway.

  • milisha82 May 08, 2009

    Tried it, but it just keep on saying-"file system busy,try again later".
    Gonna try again later and write if it works. Maybe I should just take it to some mobile service....or I'm afraid I will ruin it :D
    Thank you so much for the asisstance! :))

  • milisha82 May 08, 2009

    Yes, says it constantly, also when the back cover is removed.
    Okay, I am going to try this out now. :)

  • milisha82 May 08, 2009

    haha, it worked!
    but as soon as I downloaded the software, and wanted to connect phone to pc, I realized that in the mean time battery was low and the phone turned off.....and when I turned it on, I could get in the gallery!
    oh my.....if I only knew....simply restarting it fixed the whole problem.

    Thank you so much for your time and all the best! :)))

  • milisha82 May 08, 2009

    hahaha, nooo, everyone else would try that first, but not me...that would be too simple....always choose the harder way :D
    okay, I'll take the updates and once again, thanks for being there :))

Check the back cover is on securely...

The back cover on these has a trigger mechanism that goes into the phone to make the memory card work, the back cover being on wrong causes the memory card to go off or on and off...

    ^ sorry forgot to mention, if the memory card is going on and off then the Gallery may not work... As the gallery tries to read the card, one second its available the next its not, so it crashes the Gallery... Thats the most common problem with this handset... If the back cover doesnt seat properly you can replace the cover or you can bridge the trigger mechanism... However its best to replace the cover...

    If that doesnt solve the issue, try backing everything up and use Nokia software Updater to update the handsets firmware, however from my experience it is just as simple as the back cover on these :)

  • c9679 May 08, 2009

    If you remove the back cover and then turn it around, you will see there are 2 notches, one fits into the latch that holds it into the phone the other fits in just to the side of the memory card slot (left side if I remember correctly...)

  • c9679 May 08, 2009

    Just to check if it is this thats causing it, remove the back cover all toghether and then try going to the Gallery

    Nokia released 5 versions of this back cover, due to the memory card problems, there have also been quite a few software updates due to stability issues, try backing up everything and then using the Nokia software updater available under Support on the Nokia website

  • c9679 May 08, 2009

    Is it saying that message when the back cover is removed???
    The first thing the Nokia service centre would do is upgrade the firmware, if the above doesnt work please do backup everything you have on the phone using Nokia PC Suite available at

    Then use the Nokia software updater, to update the phones software, remember to save everything you need first though... Its very easy to use the Updater and it tells you exactly what to do :)

  • c9679 May 08, 2009

    Ok in that case the gallery or one of the files is probably corrupted and its having a hard time reading it, a software update should solve it, let us know how you get along :)

  • c9679 May 08, 2009

    Lol, I thought that would have been the first thing you tried, lmao... Still try to do the update though keep the charger plugged in and have the sim in the phone, as I said there have been quite a few updates to this phone :)

  • c9679 May 09, 2009

    No problem happy to help :)

My nokia 6500 slide can not read the memory card, please help..

If the memory card is OK.then check the back cover,generally this phone has a pin on the back cover to press the mmc leap switch.Anyway You can try, first remove the back cover, open Gallery in your phone and press the switch which is located near the mmc slot.If there is no internal damage Memory will be shown when you press the leap switch.If mmc is shown put a piece of paper of something to block.Otherwise you need to contact mobile repairing shop.Good luck

Sir, My mobile is Nokia 6500 model. In contact settings,at first it was set as contacts>>settings>>"memory in use"-PHONE AND SIM. By mistake I have changed the option of "memory in use" to...

usually the phone memory security code for nokia mobiles will be 12345, until it is changed manually. try this code... else, u have to consult the service provider i guess.

memory card not detecting....
First you open gallery on screen. If the memory card ok the first item will be the name of your Card. If it is not found that means the card not detecting. You may do this.:

Open Gallery, then press the back ( battery cover ) of the phone and hold for one second, now see the screen, you can see the card name on first line. But when you take your hand back form the battery cover the display revert to the same as before.
The point of pressing:- near to the lense ( Just right side of the lense) . You know why ?. The memory card is located inside of that place.
This means there is a switch (Battery cover open / close) located just left side of the memory card, and there is a TIP projected in the same place at the Battery cover. When we close the back cover the switch become ON. Here is the problem.....!. The switch will not contact even you close the cover. When you press the cover hardly the switch become contact. when you remove the hand again it become open.
More clarification:-
In a new phone if you open the battery cover the memory card will not work at all. It will detect only after closing the cover.

this may help you.

Security code for nokia 6500 classic

A small number of new models, and I know that the 6500 is one, come with no preset security code - you have to enter one the first time you use any feature that requires it.

If you go to the Settings>Security>Access Codes menu and see the option "Create security code", then you still have none; but if you see "Change security code" instead, then somebody has already done the business and unfortunately, it is still a issue that your care point has to solve for you.

Nokia 6500 slide - RESTRICTION CODE

Nokia 6500 slide - RESTRICTION CODE


Every code unlocks a certain lock. Code number 7 usually unlocks them all but some phones are 'buggy' and will not accept code 7 at first then use code 1.

Usually you only have to use code 1 or code 7.


1. Press ( # ) on your phone
2. To get ( p ) press ( * ) 3 times within 1sec
3. To get ( w ) press ( * ) 4 times within 1sec
4. To get ( + ) press ( * ) 2 times within1sec
5. Enter the 15 digit code
6. To get ( + ) press ( * ) 2 times within 1sec
7. Enter code number
8. Press ( # ) on your phone

Now your phone is unlocked!

If your phone isn?t unlocked after code 1 or code 7 then you have either entered the wrong IMEI or Network. Sometimes there could also be a problem with newer software versions. Then you can try another 'Boxserial' Remember! You have only five tries to enter the right code. After that you will need a cable to unlock your phone. So please, be aware
Phone type: DCT4
IMEI: 352027025104628
Model: 6500

There is 4 locks on a Nokia DCT4 phone.
Lock 1: MCC+MNC (Network och landsspecific)
Lock 2: GID1 lås (SIM-card typ)
Lock 3: GID2 lås (SIM-card typ)
Lock 4: MSIN lås (SIM-card specific lock)

The generated codes open up one or several locks.
Code 1 open lock 1
Code 2 open lock 2
Code 3 open lock 3
Code 4 open lock 4
Code 5 open lock 1 and lock 2
Code 6 open lock 1 lock 2 and lock 3
Code 7 open lock 1 lock 2, lock 3 and lock 4

Let me know if you have any problem follow these instructions and you should be ok.

I think it needs to be done with no sim card in the phone remember you only get 5 goes after this if its still not unlocked then the only other option is with a lead and unlocking software.

This should solve your problem let me know how you get on ok

This is all done at your own risk!
