for those in the united states, i'm just curious as to where you all bought your phones. did you buy it online or in a store? i know in pennsylvania they sell it in neiman marcus and online at neimanmarcus.com for $400,which seems kinda high to me cause the average price online is $300 from what i've seen), i'm really thinking of getting this phone, but after reading alot of opinions i'm wondering just how many problems i might have. i'm on the US t-mobile network, and maybe if i buy it from the store and not too happy with it, i could possibly return it. i know if i buy it online i won't have that option. so just curious...
As far as your NO SIGNAL issue did you know Cingular uses in some areas 850MGh signals ? and this phone is NOT a QUAD band, which means it does not have 850MHz AND 900MHz... i think that's what you're experiencing ? did you ask Cingular what kind of phone you should get before you bought this phone ?
i too, was seduced by the sexiness of this phones appearance & listed features...i dont need anything too advanced, but i found that being stylish only lasted so long as it became increasingly dissapointing w/ the battery lasting barely 1.5 days, (my car charger conection shorted after 2 months, too) strange reception quirks (im on TMobile)...calls dropped & more so, complaints from others as to how i sounded to them...while callers sounded ok on my end. complaints of echoing, distortion & comlete inability to hear me talking and constantly having to repeat yourself. i got the web function to only work for browsing nokias download site..which really gave crappy options for themes and wallpapers. hard to keep it classy, i guess. no way to upgrade memory, which would help if you wanted to take massively more pics or upload a lot of mp3s or ringtones.
Otherwise, i liked the way this phone felt in my hand, the ease of calling & texting & uploading mp3s was a snap. picturemessaging was easy, sending & receivng & installing all settings for browsing/email/MMSwere a simple set up on nokias websitebluetooth connectivity was always great for synching my calendar w/ my computer, or with a headset. The camera was great & took many sharp wonderful pics for me, & i loved the zoom function.
speaking of headset, the included earphone/headset is just...some sort of cruel joke.
Needless to say, im re-selling it & i hope if one of my friends buys it from me, they dont hate me.
I dont want to be rude but I think this phone could have done better it has a 10MB memopry with no slot for expandable memory where on earth are you supposed to stoe all your pics, mp3's and videos I advise people to think very, very carefully before even considering to buy this shameful disappointment it for ppl who dont know how 2 use phones
WARNING! Don't use this phone if you use Cingular. ABSOLUTELY NO SIGNAL INSIDE and HORRIBLE SIGNAL OUTDOORS! Particulary in Houston and Dallas, TX areas.
So freaking pissed that I spend so much money on a phone and I can't evem use it for the basic functions of using a phone: TO TALK TO PEOPLE. Waste of time, stress, and money. So freakin' annoying! RAR!
I found the solution for the color problem for anyone who wants to keep the awesome shade of Warm Amber. For the new one that is coming out (the 7373), I found out that you can actually buy the face cover and back cover and replace it with what you've got.
Just go to ebay and search for it. Here is an example:
I know its kind of sappy that I was having trouble choosing between the 7370 and the 7373 just because of color, but I really was looking for more of a fashion phone anyway. I REALLY wanted the warm amber and the new pink and bronze black were not appealing to my tastes. So, I did some reason and discoverd that it might be possible to just change the hardware to the phone, while keeping the features for the new release that is coming out. I was leaning more towards the 7373 since it contains more memory and features than the older version.
Since I don't think they didn't change much on the dimensions, the change of face plates will greatly help. That is what I want to do anyway. I haven't tried it myself yet, though, so if anyone does please let me know if it really does work. I shall try it myself here soon once they release the 7373. *Gets anxious*
Hope this information helps some people. ^_^
I was seduced by the looks of this phone but the reception on this phone in the US is horrible. I have Cingular, so it's not the network. I've had so many dropped calls, missed calls and NO BARS in areas of HOUSTON, DALLAS and AUSTIN! Very annoying.
I KNOW THIS WILL BE A SILLY QUESTION:
I need to know the demension of the batterry:
such as width and lenth. Anyone who owns this phone please repply.
Before I buy this phone as a gift,
I want to see if I can stick mine nokia BLC-4 batterry into this phone. If I can, then I will give my prepaid Nokia 2115i with its BLC-4 together with 7370 Phone as a gift:
2115i will serve as a charger for second batterry.
My god, am i the only sane person here!! This phone, granted looks fabulous but its rubbish!! Ive had it for 4 months and am sick of the problems which are, the battery lasts 2 days if you dont use it much, the bluetooth connection is rubbish you can never pick up other handsets, they have to connect to you, the network coverage/pickup is rubbish (at least on Orange), it wont tell you when you have an answerphone message and the memory is so small you can fit 3 songs and a couple of pictures and its full, looks can be deceiving ladies, dont bother! Glad they dont make them anymore, buy an N series Nokia, apparently they are really good!!
I'm new at this and trying to reply to the person who wants a brown 7370 instead of the gold. I just bought the new brown one and it's still in the box etc and I'd LOVE to have the gold one. Where are you?
One of my freinds give me this phone because they got a new one but am not sure if to take it. I dont really know mucha bout phones so an some one tell me if i should go for it? plz...
I got this one in gold color...anyone know if I can change it to a darker color(the brown one)? where can I buy new fronts for this one????
The gold is getting soooo boring!
does any1 know if you can expand the memory on this phone?
if so, can you send me an email telling me how, thanks
ive post here before. ok....read carefully. im a music fanatic.
for people putting mp3's on the phone. the reason your mp3 is like 3 or 4 MB's big is because of the BIT RATE. on windows media player, in the library, theres al option to show BIT RATE (same menu as song title, amlbum, artist)...songs are usually 128kbps. the bigger the bit rate number, the bigger the file. u CAN compress (lower the bit rate) and make the song smaller. note that quality is sacrificed. ive fit about 10 songs on my phone with space left over.
other options...GET AN MP3 PLAYER its a phone for crying out loud!
