The Nokia 6500 is a cell phone. It lets you store songs, videos, pictures and other types of media. In addition, it includes a micro USB for quick connection to your personal computer (PC), laptop or chargers. If you no longer like the provider you are on, you may want to flash your phone. Flashing your Nokia 6500 phone involves restoring it to its factory settings. This removes the software and account information from your phone, so you can activate it with another network provider.
