well, all pepz, that have many questions, and concerns! This is an allright/good phone, of N-series nokia! wich is Symbian OS enabled. Yes you can install app's like a java, .sis and .sisx. those who failed- try to look harder for the working app's. Camera is very good(don't forget this phone is on the market for more than 1.5 years. so 3.15 MP is more than good for such old phone! (remember - technology speed/parameters/spec's doubles every 1.5 years while the prie remains on the same level-moore's law)yes you can play music, and when someone calls- music mutes and resumes after hangup. also the buttons of keypad-joystic are programmable for certain function! and personally i have installed a few themes, blueradar, answering machine, and few other apps, so i DO use all features in full! Fortunatelly this phone now cost roughly $ 275 USD, while ever- a long time ago i've paid roughly 850 USD for it(when it came out in europe) Well i was also a proud owner of N80, (two of them, one stolen one drowned) well, i liked n80 a little more except the VERY poor battery life, i used to carry 2-3 EXTRA batteries w/me, since after active(music, apps, wifi, sms/mms, camera) usage of N80 the battery lasts a few hours! Although the camera of N73 is Better due to autofocus! design wise- personally i do not like Bar phones, but hey.. .it's still a N series unit!
i am using n73 since 01 aug 2008.like normal phone when v r in call i cant go & get the number in my phonebook
Geeth De Silva, 20 Aug 20081st of all i must tell you that i'm a mobile phone technician.and i have a lot of expeirience ... morehi can anyone plz help me choose between N73 and nokia 5700?
the benchmarks being software(specially),hardware(speed)and ergonomics.
plz suggest if the rotating mechanism will last long or not, in 5700.
Is it possible to put 4GB card into the slot?I mean how much is the limit?
I am going to tell out an interesting issue among the n Series devices and probably no body will let me know the solution.
I would like to get chinese language pack to be installed on this device by using euro 1 product code. Can this be done? because as far as i know euro firmware can disable the flash status and the camera shutter sounds while asia pacific cannot.
Thanks if some experts can help me out. But i dont think it can be done.
For those who upgraded their phone to the latest firmware, you may notice that the phone memory and application ram was consumed a lot. You may recover some by uninstalling unnecessary applications included on the firmware especially the Search Application which consumed a lot of memory and RAM. When uninstalling Search, don't forget to remove all of it's plugin using app manager. I upgraded my friend's phone and no bugs found yet. The update fixed a lot of issues and made the phone more responsive. The firmware is 4.08184.108.40.206.
I like n73 but it has no wifi,i want a wifi enabled in this range,pls suggest me some phones.

I've tried updating my friend's phone which is 4.08 something. It made my friend's phone a little responsive and haven't found any bugs yet. I've read on some forums that they have ram and phone memory problems after update. This was because of some unnecessary applications Nokia included on the firmware update. Some applications can be removed. Removing the search application can saved a lot of RAM and Phone Memory. After removing the Search application, don't forget to remove all of it's plugins using the application manager. And one more thing after the update. The USB Cable only worked on an XP Machine. Haven't tried it though on other OS aside from Windows 2000. As of now, I think the update is worth it.
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2008ive been using n73 for more than a year and its not as nice as what they have told to market. ... moreit's a great piece i must say. it's not a waste of money. I own an n73me and it's really great...try this phone coz it's really great...
