Hi guys, need a favour here, my N73 ME seems not functioned as what it is suppose. Most of the time when I open the lens cap, the screen won't direct me to the camera but remain at the display page or directed to application menu. Any ideas?
i'm an owner fron august 2006 ... so it's really good product... expecially after 4 firmware updates..

Go to nokia Europe site.
I'm updating through Nokia Site.
Not in PC Suite or something
To Derek: Actually the latest FW for RM-133 (normal edition) is 3.0722.214.171.124 datapack v6.0
@ John/Lahiru :
SRY i read already that i can downloadthe latest firmware @ the official NOKIA WEBSITE!
@ kevin_india :
THE VGA CAM ABOVE PHONE DISPLAY IS POOR QUALITY!!! its a LOW resolution SO :
@ night or without enough light it will suck!!!
The other cam ( 3,2 MegaPixel ) is SUPER!
But daylight will always give MUCH better pictures then @ night, even with the 3.2 MP cam!!!
Good Luck And Enjoy Your Phone!!!

@ John or Lahiru,
Can u plz xplain 2 me how 2 update the firmware WITHOUT pc suite OR Nokia Centre??
Can i do that @ the official Nokia Homepage??
THNX in advance!!
*Gip C is the PROUD OWNER of a N73 for about 3 months now, and still loving every thing about the phone, except the small child deceases of the phone, witch i hope 2 get out with the firmware update!
I have had the N73 for 8 months now and I have to say it wasn't the ideal phone to start off with. The camera was excellent and speaker qualilty was crystal clear. The only bad thing about it was the interface where it was slow and constally froze.
Now the phone is fine, I have no problems with it as it does not lag or freeze. The latest firmware is a must because it is updated and should not make your phone freeze at all or as much. The only thing I wish was updated on the firmware was the alarm clock. It cannot be repeted daily or at all. This annoys me as I use my phone for an alarm clock.
To get the latest firmware you must go to the nokia site and download software updated or go to your nearest nokia care.

the newest firmware so far for N73 RM-133 ( normal edition)

Hi I have bought N73 ME last week.When i take pictures using the front VGA camera,there are lot of noise in the picture it is displaying.This is like pink paint droplets sprinkled all over the image.
Is this a problem?
Any Geeks out here pl help me
I have N73 for about half a year, and I'm very dissapointed... Symbian is very slow and it's really getting on my nerves... It's stupid phone. I was also very dissapointed with the quality of phone plastic - I have silver-black one and the plastic is really cheap. White-red edition has much better plastic. The camera is good only in natural sunlight, but in the dark it's really poor. K800 has much better pictures.
anybody tried converting the Chinese text into N73 Music yet ? please advise how ? many thanks.
Got the N73 2 months ago :
Here's the PRO : Excellent music & camera
CONS : No Chinese input and reader
: No repeat alarm setting, have to set alarm daily

Kevin_India - The front camera is VGA and so it won't work in dark places. If you go to someone with good lighting, it should be a lot better.
