Got the N73 a couple of weeks ago after carefull consideration. Here is my verdict;
A good phone that needs a firmware upgrade.
-Had several freezes and a couple of unforced re-starts
-Sometimes the connection is broken. Could be 3G network problem though
-No way to change the font size. Some it's too small. (camera menu)
-No wallet option to save your credit card no's, passwords etc.
Anybody knows about when an uppgraded software will be available?
Although i like Nokia, this one is too big and too ugly for me. Just bought the small Samsung E770 for 200$, mp4 video is far better than Nokia...what a shame for Nokia.
erm..wat is the meaning of buggs..wat complaint about bugss..i duno wat it means
I'm having the same problem with the first and last name selection for contacts... It does not want to sort by first name. Other then that the phone works very well!
These little bugs will surely be fixed in the future.

When you buy 2-hand phones, do not complain about "the bugs in my phone"
N73 has old fashioned N7o keyboard which is horrible,still has bugs ad slow processor.I cant understand why people buy Expensive plus Full of Bugss phones. why not wait ,hav they got money growing on Trees
n73 is goodest i ever seen.camera,sound,applications shape all are excelent
All new phones usually has some software bugs in the first release. Upgrading the firmware of the phone solves this, I bought my 6630 when it was first released and I had a few bugs, after the firmware upgrade - no more bugs.
The N73 has the better camera right now in the market also from my own testing of the N73 and the SE K800 in their respective stores.
the phone is great..
the keypad is a bit uncomfortable
screeen size, no neeeed for a comment
it has got two speakers at the top nd bbottom...and the sound is great
the phone is not that fast...it takes a few sec for the camera to start..and switching b/w still & vdo mode also takes some time.
i hav bbeen using it for more thn half a month and i didn't get any of the "LOW MEMORY" warnings...well it depends how you use it..
the best thing is the WEB browser..with such a big diaplay..it simply is da best.
THE 3D ENGINE IS also working fine for me...the games run smoooth
the firmware is still bugggy...but its not annoying.
we cant excpect any more frm the first firmware..i think it's doing gr8
my advice....JUST BUY iT
you can contact me for futher queries...

My N73 is F'in perfect!
basically its a good phone with some software bug - my phone intermittent auto restart when calls coming in.
nevertheless, all is good. camera colourful, good enough to replace my digital camera.
small nice compact and solid. no creaking sound only the glossy keypad will peel off after some time - same material as my old 6680.
it seems the settings on my contacts remains as Last, First names even though i try to keep on changing it to First, Last names. is there anyone having this problem too?
thats very nice to know atleast now its from someone who actually did test it.
whats the brand of ur card ? if u could post the brand and name so we can google it.
amy you are so lucky, the k790 its 150$ with 45$ contract a month, and 550$+ prepaid.
and you got he n73 just for 510$! it have more features. nice buy
in camera n73 vs n80, n73 for sure, actually the only phone will be able to beat the n73 will be it biggest sibling n93 when they remove the noise... but right now the n73 it the top of the best
I own a N80 and a Nokia 9300. i have always used a nokia the one time i switched was when i used the Imate JAM.
so far the N73 is the best nokia i have ever used so far. Following some advice to switch off the mobile once a day and use the "Menu > Exit" instead of the "back" or quick "exit" button. using this step makes sure that the program is completely closed.
Speed wise its very fast and i am impressed compared to the N80 which i find to be a laggy.
Picture quality is superb i am very satisfied with it.
Comparing it to the SE K800i which my friend owns the touch/interface is much more better and user friendly than the SE k800i... atleast for me it is.
so far i never came across a lag/crash/error with 24mb USED phone memory and 20mb free.
some told me that having a 512mb memory card or bigger tends to slow down ur phone i was adviced to have a 128 or 256MB MC and i will be getting one in a day for a cheap amount.
so if ur looking for the best nokia out there based on the phone i owned this is the best phone in the market right now.
a friend of mine offered to exchange his 8800 with my N73 head to head with no extra's. thats how good this mobile is.
Last but not least this is my opinion and i am basing the facts on my experience with my previous mobiles.. so if u have owned something before which offers and works better than this N73 please share. otherwise purchising this mobile is something u wont regret.
