I too would not mind knowing. Any link where I can download it (not the AsiaPacific one; I prefer the Euro one with Romance languages).

change logs are  official /confidential  so they do not get published for public viewing. changelogs are usually avaliable to find for the e series and n series in the blogosphere but not for the 'lower' end models or s40 platform phones. unless you dig and search the web there is really no way for you to know that. if the changelog was avaliable and was not publicly published on nokia conversations or such it would not be allowed to be posted here anyway as it is against nokia policy to do so. 

 

 

that said is it ALWYAS advisable to update to the newest firmware due to bug fixes, increased stability, performance sometimes you get new features and increased battery life. now that is not to say that new bugs don't get introduced, they do sometimes :smileywink:

I don't think v10.00 is out yet (as of the date of this post). The official Nokia site only has v9.4 and I've trawled around a bit and found nothing else.

 

http://europe.nokia.com/get-support-and-software/download-software/device-software-update

 

Check out this site from time to time to find out what's happening 

 

Beware of downloading from other unofficial sites as you might be getting more than you bargained for.

It's still not listed at the site, butt it's out there.

I've got the update by using nokia software updater.

 

When *#0000# is entered in the main screen of

my nokia 6500 slide it comes with a screen that reports this:

 

Nokia 6500s-1

V 10.00

06-03-09

RM-240

(C)Nokia

Variant: 00.00

Virtual Variant:

No virtual variant

 

Language:

 

V 10.00

06-03-09

RM-240

(c)Nokia

C

 

See also the attachments.

 

It's still a pitty that there is still no information aviable for

this firmware version, they need to be more open about it.

One item is that 'Yahoo Go 3.0' is downgraded to version 2.0. If you try to reinstall version 3.0 you are going to bee disappointed, It wound.

Yohoo is software that I won't use and also won't miss, it should'nt be put together at all with any nokia phone.

The GMAIL Java Client is working fine and also installs very fine on my Nokia.

This new firmware also criples the media player, mp3's start in the middle of the

track or got cutted off at the end and in some cases wont play at all.

 

This is realy a case off don't update yet, you only get to know what is wright and wat is wrong

when you update, an open update log about the firmware version would be nice Nokia,

give poeple a choice to update or not to update, let poepleknow what you're about to improve or

mgoing to make worse.

I can download and execute the Gmail client, but it complains about a missing certificate and stops. Yahoo Go I don't miss, Yahoo Mail in Opera Mini is really good. The media player causes no problem on my 6500s.

Solution to the Gmail issue.

 

The Verisign root certificate needed can be manually installed from this URL https://www.verisign.com/cgi-bin/support/rootcert/getrootcert.cer. Now the Gmail Java client work's on my 6500s.

Re: Issues with my 6500-slide

I installed the Nokia suite 3.7.22 a few days ago.

And indeed point 1 till 4 do occure with my phone too.
But also:
5. Battery capacity dropped like crazy.
from a normal once per 1,5 week charge, I now need to charge the battery within 24 hours.

This problem occured right after upgrading the firmware, so no bad battery!

I will try to find out if I can downgrade the firmware for a day.
If I can't find it, I will switch over to iPhone after 18 years of Nokia.

Re: Issues with my 6500-slide

An inspection now learns that the battery pack is bulgin, so it must be somehow be overcharged.

And the reason why you can't keep your settings, is that the external memory card isn't recognized anymore.
So I guess the firmware update means: get a new phone.
Which I will: goodbye nokia.

Re: Issues with my 6500-slide

batteries bulging happens and due to the age of your phone, is not an uncommon occurrence. has nothing to do with Nokia, and could happen to any phone battery in any device from any manufacturer.

your options now are to either buy a new battery of an identical type, or visit your local Nokia Care: http://nokia.com/support
