one thing still considering not to buy n73 is someone called it "street phone".
the " street phone" just can only last a short while. then the price dropped spiral.
and some more the value of trade-in price will be suffered.
One of the things holding me back from buying this phone is its ugliness.
N73 does not hang on firmware v3.0705.x.xx or higher. below v2 is were it hangs.
which mobile is better N73 or N73 music edition
since i have heard N73 hangs a lot?????
please answer fast

Firstly, you just did what I intended for you to do, and that is to inform the readers here that your posting is meant for certain firmware and certain Countries and not meant for all in general.
And based on yr first para. Why are u asking me to try a firmware that is not meant for my country. Obviously, there are reason why there are different version of firmwares meant for each country.
Read my other postings, I never mislead anybody here to try out things not meant for their Country, even for firmware updates, I advisethem to update thru NSU so that the right firmware meant for their phone and countries could be installed.
Lastly, anybody who read my post knows I am giving my view based on my country context which is stated after my name.
BTW, "This is what Nokia has to say about yr posting" as per my posting does not represents my comment but that of Nokia, when I email them your posting for their comment.
Any thanks for everything.

This is what Nokia has to say about yr posting.
Further to your concern of the A2DP Bluetooth profile, this is a profile
that is embedded into the phone's firmware of certain phone by default.
This profile is not supported by your Nokia N73. However, your Nokia N73
does support Stereo audio quality with the "Radio", "Voice recorder",
"Video recorder" and "Media player" feature, if a compatible headset is
used. Please refer to the following link for compatible headsets for your
Good Mobile - though a little slow on switching over various applications as compared to SE. However, net browsing is a pleasure - very clear screen whose size you can fiddle around with.
a) Very good camera and video - excellent in being handy if you need to take snaps, video instantaneouly (though takes some time!).
b) Excellent net browser
c) Mail for Exchange can be installed & is excellent (from the foll.Nokia link http://www.e-series.org/archives/388)
d) Good quality bigger screen
Music quality is just ok
Quick office allows only viewing and not editing
No zip software.
I am not sure of the processor speed and the RAM ROM memory. Will it be worth spending the extra 50$ to get the Quick office ver 4 installed? Any zip software available (free/ paid)?
Also can any password protected file be opened in Quickoffice 4?
Does this phone have a landscape viewing mode for movies and videos full screen?
actually its not dat bad as people think.......... if u r usin it wid soft touches its awesome fone...........
Got my N73 yesterday, I thought problem sovled as I have posted in my previous post.
The problem of contact list displayed in 10 secs happened again. I am totally disappointed with Nokia HQ. I'm from Singapore. My phone was in Nokia centre at Wheellock then to Nokia HQ. A total of 13 days!!! And the recipt or solution that I got from them is only firmware upgrade!!!
If firmware upgrade required, I don't need 13 days, I just need 30 mins. Moreover the technician indicated that they have tested the phone.
And I just found out that my firmware of v4.07188.8.131.52 04-07-2007 is for MUSIC EDition of N73. How can they installed it in my N73 normal edition which supposed to be V 4.07184.108.40.206 dated 26-06-2007 !!!
I cannot believe what these people from Nokia centre are engaged for. They are not professional at all. They just repair for the sake of repair. Firmware upgrade need 13 days, and moreover, they put in Music Edition firmware.
I question the people at Wheellock Singapore did their technician check or not.
Perhaps, my last NOkia phone now. I am a Nokia supporter for 7 years. Their professionism is no longer there though their service centre looks nice....
I have read the specifications of N73ME and the read opinions. I can't just wait to buy one. I will do anything to buy N73ME. I'm dying for N73ME. I love N73ME.
