What are you talking about? Everyone knows and agrees that this phone is AWESOME!!!
One of the best phones on the market.
It's is just simply worthless as a PHONE... outside of Japan. You know the story...
who would buy a locked phone????
and who would buy a phone which will be locked forever???
I wish people just shut up if they don't have anything good to say simply becase they don't have one....
I do admit that the N73's camera isn't quite as good as the 903/904SH, but the flash is much brighter.
The Symbian OS is powerful though a bit buggy every now and then. Symbian OS does give you plenty of functionality that SHARP simply cannot offer.
But then again the 904SH isn't a smartphone...
The music player on the N73 is much better than the 903SH's and probably on par with the 904SH.
Software updates are available for both the N73 and 904SH and the ringtone volume level on the N73 is extremely loud.
I would rather own a SHARP. But SHARP has decided to withdraw their high-end models from Europe as their is not enough Interest :(
So I'm stuck with SE and NOKIA...
Why would I buy a phone that I cannot use?
I know of plenty of people who bought one and sold it again.
And the point is: This phone cannot be used by anyone who is not a Japanese Citizen or Japanese Resident with a valid SOFTBANK Contract and enabled International Roaming.
Which excludes 99.9% of all GSM users...
This phone is brilliant, I used to own a SHARP 903SH. But it IS a PAPER WEIGHT for me as I will never be able to use it outside of Japan.
And I don't buy phones just so I can own it. I need to use them...
Doesn't that make sense?
to u harlekkin
maybe u have not yet try sharp phone,but 1 thing i wanna tell u that your N73 is suck.it is really suck when it's compare with sharp phone.trust me
guys it time to move on and think about other phone. this old is kind old.
So, then it works and could be used outside Japan. You are discribing it as if it works only with Japanise network. Why are you so negative about the 904SH. can't you afford one?
So you could make a review of its features for real not hearsay stories you have been doing in this site for the past 2 months.
And how do you imagine I should get a contract with SOFTBANK/VODAFONE KK????
SOFTBANK contracts are only available to Japanese Citizens or temporary residents as you need an immigration card to get them.
And who would be so dumb and pay these ridiculous roaming charges?!
The phone is only available to Japanese residents and can only be used by THEM...even though INT roaming is AVAILABLE (yes, japanese people do travel).
With your Usim on roaming you can use it at any part of the world with GSM. its not true that you can only use it in Japan. some people talk like they have a 904SH.
dun u own a 904sh?!
is it possible to use USIM to turn on the phone?
@Mike and others
This phone is a VodafoneKK/SOFTBANK only model and can only be purchased via SOFTBANK JAPAN. Gray Imports are available on eBay, but the phone cannot be used outside of Japan.
This model can only play DRM protected music.
That's Japan for you...
this phone doesnt support mp3? but the 903sh did =..=" that makes alot of sense lol
To the copycat
I don't want to buy a 904SH...
I'm happy with my N73!
I've talked in a place here in Athens GREECE and they told me that the unlock is on it's way. And yes the new phones like the 910 have no GSM but as many other phones in Japan. And don't forget that GSM is going to be away soon also in Europe since the 4G phones are coming.
he gadget guru are u sure that it is gonna be soon? cuz i got my 904sh more than half a year now
Just hoping that the features and performance may all be the same like N95...cos in look and design it has overtaken N95 but features and performance N95 rules...
