Nokia 6500 help

Have bought one from Orange on the £60 refurb deals
I have just bought new 1GB sd micro card and fitted it today, BUT phone just keeps coming up with "no memory card fitted"
Am I missing doing something or is the phone faulty.
Any Ideas ?????????

Yep terminals are lined up.
The fitting slot/gate for this is carp and cheap !!!!

Try re-formatting the card on your computer, in FAT32 mode. This usually works.

Thanks m8, but no luck there either.

On this phone, if I remember correctly. theres a small metal pin on the back cover which activates the card.

I'm guessing due to it being a refurb, it may have been out of place? Try bend the pin a little to re-align with the card.

Thanks guys.
It looks like phone must be at fault !!

The pin on the inside cover, just to the left of the camera lens hole. A few relatives have had this problem and have been fixed just by giving it a bit of pressure to reposition it.

From looking at the picture.....

The back cover, to the left of the camera hole, needs to push in that little hole located between the camera lens and micro sd when the cover is on.

Try that, if it doesn't work, fault I'd say.

Right, the thing won't even power up now (dead phone)
So I have sent it back today. I will wait and see what sort of service I get from
"dextra solutions" who have sold it on behalf of Orange !

Has anyone else who got one of these had any bother and had to get in touch for repair/refund??
