within 2 weeks of getting phone the slide show stopped working in zoom and pan. sent away for repairs, took 6 weeks and they replaced phone. Got new phone, same problem. Normal slide show (from gallery) works fine but when set to zoom and pan it only shows one photo then goes black.Anyone else had this problem? thanks
Hey this phone looks amazing. i really wanna get it. BUT i was wondering if anyone could tell me if the software may work on a Mac, or if i could get Mac software for it.
Well, after 3+ months of trying various phones I have returned to the N73. I tried SE 810i, SE K800i, Nokia N80, SE P990i and SE W850i as well as the N73 a couple of months ago.
It is not perfect - nothing is but I think this will be a good fone for the next year or so.
Hi everyone does anyone who knows how to change the fascias on the N73 i have change the front easily as you just need to use a credit card an lift i up a little near the "c" button a work round an it comes off easily,i just want to get any manual instructions how to change the back part of the fascia without causing any damage to the phone ,i have a black fascia an the N73 looks superb in Black,so if anyone can help let me know please
The card was working to begin with but was really really slow then it gave up the ghost and it wouldn't even let me format it. i phoned the store this morning and even they said it sounded as if it had a dodgy chip in it, but they are going to replace it.
It's a pity because i love the phone, without the card in it's fantastic, best and quickest symbian phone ever imo. I was just unlucky with a dodgy memory card i guess.
I'll see what happens with the new one.
From what I have read some not all brands would work in the n73. I have heard cards from Ebay would have 2 gb labels but 1 gb capacity. I have a 2 Gb Moby card from MobyMemory and that is working fine. I managed to download 1.85 Gb of music and movies. I have 1.1 gb of music which stays on the card all the time and download and delete movies as when I need to. I formatted my card in the phone and not on the PC so I don't know if that made a difference.
seeing all urs opinions bout n73, i'm blurred whether to buy or not to buy this hp.
well, i did do a tone comparison btn n73 with se z610, seems z610 sound quality is better...thats make me sad...
coz im planning to buy this hp next month as my own christmas present...
why flash is always on , even when I make video in a sunny day?? how to off it??....anyone please ..thanx
hai guys i have bought nokia n73 20 days back.i think it is one of the best model nokia produce,camera & screen quality is excelent& audio is good.after comparing lot of models between nokia & sony ericsson ihave bought this. iam very much satisfied.
Still having all sorts of bother with the memory card, the phone only recognised it as 1gb but it worked fine with photos but as soon as i put mp3 files on it thats it kaput, i cant even format it now, i haven't got a clue whats wrong with it think it must be a dodgy card looks like i'll have to send it back.
Yes it was from my memory i've tried to fmt the card in the phone but it wont let me for some reason. I've done it on the conp @ it seems to be ok now but transfering files is painfully slow
The said mini sd was it from MyMemory? I have a 2gb card and have I gb of music. OK the camera is slow but not like what you quoted. I have films as well and now it if almost full and crashed once or twice.
Try format by the phone and not the PC/ Tramsfer the data onto the phone and not within your PC. I formatted the card in my phone and transferred data to it, when I put the card in my pc it does not show any data and said if I would like to format again.
why do people always seem to pull mobiles down on these pages,the camera cover is o.k as long as you take care of it an better than the k800i one thats why i sent that phone back ,the n73 is a very good mobile indeed ,the sounds of the speakers is loud the camera superb an i am sure nokia will be putting better flashes on there mobiles now to make there cameras even better,to take better care of your lens cover buy a clear crystal case of Ebay or any where else to take could care of your mobile phone an screen,still no news of the MEXN73 but its Xmas nextmonth so i am sure Nokia will release the Black N73 to get better sales with it release date
had my N73 for a week now and as a mobile phone it's first class does everything you ask of it without problems. great screen, no txt message probs, battery time superb.
but got a new 2gb memory card 2 days ago and this is where my problems started it was supposed to be fast 133x but since putting it in i've had the camera slow up considerably as it waits to save to said card even looking at the photos afterwards you have to wait an age for then to open and i'm not talking 10-15 seconds i'm talking 30+ secs each photo.
as for playing mp3s it's brilliant but once again the memory card gave me probs when transfering music to it it took an age.
now i really like the phone but if this is what a memory card does then i'll be pretty pissed and it will go back to vodafone and i'll stick to my w810.
if anyone has any ideas them please let me know asap.
I just bought this N73 and i love it..the function is so good an the camera 3.2 mp walla i dont need a digital camera.this phone suite my life.. I will recomment this phone to all my friends....
my n73 firmwere is
is there any need to update firmwere? if yes,From where I can update the firmwere?
Thanx in advance
Thanks for the excellent review!
Also noted that many users who posted in gsmarena are happy with their N73s. However, on many of the other sites (by searching on google), it is observed that most of the users have serious problems with their N73s - like they had to visit Nokia Care 5 times, got their phone motherboards changed, upgraded the firmware, etc. but to no good.
Could this be similar to what happened with the Nokia 3230? One huge lot of faulty phones (with hardware problems) was shipped by Nokia and most of them were returned by users after much cursing.
Also it is noted that many of the users say that "I'm having this mobile since xx months and it's working fine ... etc. etc. etc" i.e. those who bought the phone few months back are happy with it as the phone has fewer or no problems, but those who bought the phones RECENTLY - have problems - e.g. "I just bought this phone few days back and it doesn't work even after changing firmware, mainboard ... etc. etc. etc ... It's a waste of money ... etc. etc. etc.".
Could it be another faulty lot by Nokia (with hardware faults)?
Also after reading opinions for other Nokia phones (N80, E61, etc) you can see very similar problems. Is it a generic S60v3 problem? Or phone specific? With more and more Nokia phones coming in, phone stability is taking a nose-dive downwards.
Any comments on this?
I'm planning to change from 6630 to N73, but got really scared after reading about the phone being unstable/crashing. Also, in my country, it's next to impossible to prove to the Nokia Care people that the phone DOES have problems, forget getting it fixed. They are just too arrogant and refuse to accept it! Their only aim is to sell the phones. Once sold, their job is done, they don't care what happens after that. So if I get a faulty N73, I'm totally wasted. I was thinking of N80/E61, but they too have similar stability problems, although not on such a scale.
Any comments, guys?
