Deal Of The Day - Nokia 6500 Slide (Black) - Low line rental

Getting a rock bottom line rental deal is fine - but how do you grab such a deal when partnered by great, new generation handset? Here's how. This 3 tariff might, at first look, be light on free minutes and texts but, because you're given a pot of credit, you will be able to maximise it to your advantage. Also, the line rental is paid up-front so you can better budget your costs.

Look and feel

One of those rare phones that actually looks better in the flesh than in photos. We love the brushed metal finish and black trim.


Ease of use

The busy homescreen looks more like a version you'd find on a smartphone, with shortcuts to key menu icons.


The Nokia 6500 Slide boasts a very strong feature set for a mid range phone, with a very capable 3.2 megapixel camera and 3G data speeds.



The 6500 Slide is a very strong all-rounder that's difficult to fault.


Battery life

We were using the phone solidly for two days before the battery life needed topping up, which is fine.
