I'm not going to trust N73 or their service.My 1st N73 was not working & switching off very frequently.Later n a week time I have changed the handset.then the hands free wasn't work.I have given to Carphone house in Colliers wood who is authorised service center for Nokia.They tried 5 times(Nearly more than 7 weeks they took to tell me that they cann't repair the phone) to repair.Nothing happen.Wheather Carphone ware hasn't got efficient engineer or Nokia couldn't rectify the problem.I'm tired.Don't trust N series you may end up with problem.
