Have used E71 for nearly 2 years (great phone) now for nearly a week used E72. Immediately upgraded sofware via Nokia Updater and reinstalled all contacts, etc... The phone rocks ! Faster than E71 (for emails for instance), very stable, I just desactivated the touch pad. Don't listen to all negative remarks about this phone, I hesitated for this reason but it's great. In the box, one bluetooth transmitter with perfect sound. Don't hesitate if you loved the E71, upgrade is worth the price !
igo, 04 Jun 2010how come this unit has lots of bugs? what happened with its ancestors being perfect then this ... moreI must say that im surprised to find soooo many problems reported by other users. I have the E72 for about 3 months now & i love every minute. Touch wood, no problems yet, im still running the old 21.XX software( our provider is slow to release the upate).
No freezing ( & I do run multiple apps). I find the camera adequate, even excellent for a business phone.(better than the pics I've seen with BB), No reasonably priced data bundles in my country, but set e-mail to sync every 1/2 hour & it works perfectly.
keyboard is fantastic, battery back-up even more so.Fits so comfortably in your pocket.Maybe we got the better units here.
how come this unit has lots of bugs? what happened with its ancestors being perfect then this one coming out so imperfect? this is so bad
E72 sometimes freezes especially if u open many apps at the same time. But the device is still great. I think most of this bugs wil be soughted out by the release of the New E73. Seems Like an E71 with the Heart & Muscle of the E72. I'm buying the E73 Mode. Can't wait for it to be released. But i think this could have out sold The Nokia N8 if it had 480 by 320 resolution, 800MHz processor, a (Graphic processing unit) GPU symbian ^4 OS & an 8MP Camera.
im plannig to buy it next week. but opinions posted here has successfuly made me god damn confuse whether to buy it or not.
is this phone that bad???

Don't know about Blackberries, but don't buy an iPhone. I just want to fire mines from a gunmachine or smash it into tiny little pieces. Maybe e72 isn't a great phone, but trust me... you will cry having an iphone!!!
The Nokia E72 is a really great phone in general and this phone, the E73, is probably as well. But I must tell you, that every E72 owner I've met so far, has jealously looked and played with my white Nokia N86 and came to the conclusion that it's even better, but they just didn't know it existed. Conclusion N86 > E72/E73.

Ybrowser(free from original website) or xplorer(free version has nagging screen)
Install software to see your memory resources like Handy Taskman or JBaktaskman
Then go to C:\cache\ and delete all your cache files. I recovered around 40mb on my father-in-laws phone. His 2 year old symbian phone is still working great now.
Weirdly/Stupidly browsers on s60 phones doesn't clear cache properly.
just bought mine today and had no problems. I upgraded the firmware and still no problems :-)
do not go for E72 at all if you don like to have slow performance experience and several freezes!
I was always a fan of nokia, using nokia phones more than 8 years. E72 would be for sure the last one. I just upgraded the firmware today and hoped to get the problems solved, but ....

Okay I just got my e72 with firmware version 022.007
so far I haven't found any bugs but I am wondering if it is safe to update to 031.023
This latest firmware seems to be causing people trouble.

read my opinion if u want to check the problems I'm facing
DON'T GO FOR E72 ... DON'T GO FOR A NOKIA
well guys I've to say that I was one big nokia fan for over 12 years now I thought this handset would be my best qwerty choice after the great E61i, E71 and the nice 5800XM but NO it's not, the worst handsets I ever used from nokia,
I did the firmware update(031.023) 2 weeks ago and still facing some stupid issues with the performance and freezing makes me need to restart the phone on a daily basis and some days more than a time
software issues with the new update 031.023:
- each time I use more than one application at the time the phone freezes and stop performing like e dead mate keyboard stops responding.
- the clock at the standby screen goes ... magically disappear (where I don't know).
- the virtual memory goes to Zero so fast with camera app or listing to radio and the phone becomes very very slow
- keyboard stop responding at all except the power button.
moving to the hardware issues
- voice calls quality are below the average comparing to my previous 5800 XM
- loudspeaker is very very bad
- building quality is not that good
- Navi keypad is annoying (thanks to nokia that u can't turn it off)
- the phone become very HOT during the calls
I'm so disappointed with the handset and I'm looking forward to change it NOT with nokia anymore
I think its better to get a solid manufactured handset like an apple or a blackberry
