you can reformat your phone to remove ALL viruses of your phone. but first, back-up all your contacts and other useful info on your phone...
after the back up, turn off your phone...
to reformat it, press and hold "*" then "call button (green botton)" then "3" then "Power Button"
**note, do this while your phone is off. press and hold all the buttons just mentioned above (except the power button). you can remove your fingers there when you see you pin code entry requirement)
n73 is a good phone. you would just have to bear with it's speed... this phone is slow because of it's RAM...
this phone is built for power not speed... you must be a patient person if you want to have this phone... also, be very very careful with it's joystick (be gentle on it as it can get very loose and would just snap off)
i recommend that you use a pouch to protect it's joystick more....
Jesse, 14 Oct 2008Any time i want to installe sisx application it wil write corrupted.what can i do?First make a back up. then a master reset. if that wont work a firmware update. How to do the update, see my last message below.
Caroline, 13 Oct 2008Hi Martin, thanks for that. What did you use to shave a couple of mls off the end of the memo... morejust used a very sharp knife. Be careful not to damage contacts tho. It worked for me. Just up-graded to N96. Still can't make up my mind whether it is an up-grade or I have fallen for all the hype. The N73 IS a much better phone tho on paper the 96 has more features. Stick with it Caroline, the phone is worth it.

Hi all, I downloaded lots of new themes tonight from a site I use all the time and halfway through downloading one of them my phone froze, then resumed downloading. I kept on downloading, then installed them (12 in all). But when I went to use them ALL my themes had gone. Even default themes. I have installed the latest Update Software and run it but apparently my phone is always "up to date", it's been that way for over a year. Is that possible? And how can I get my themes back? I tried re-installing them but kept getting error msgs. I have also gone back to an earlier back-up but they are still missing. Help much appreciated.
this phone is good the first time i have it, until it lag so often and the annoying joystick finally come to its end and break loose that easily. . i advise everyone who, in future, will buy a new phone, not to pick one with a joystick... or if will, have to check it carefully.
let's live.. the technology awaits!

I bought my N73 in August 2006 and since then, I've been having nothing but problems with the phone. The most annoying problem is that it hangs for quite a while when I try to invoke a function....it's also so damn slow. I tried upgrading the firmware 3 times (the latest was 4 months ago) but until now, it's still very very annoyingly SLOW! Can anyone advise on how to overcome this?
This is a great phone! u will satisfied for using this phone.. but pls dont buy china model!!!
My fone has the same problem vicky.. it restarts anytime it wants and the camera freezes from time to time.
