Oh, and forget to mention THAT keypad - what on earth was Nokia thinking? "Lets have a massive lovely screen but sacrifice the interface"? The keypad is tiny - My fingers aren't oversized, but with this keypad you have to stab vertically down on each button otherwise you're at risk of hitting other keys - This is not a phone for texters. Think Nokia realised there was a problem too, as they have those horizontal ridges built in to those tiny keys as finger guides to help separate them - a lousy ergonomic quick-fix. Maybe should have had a larger keypad and cut down on the number of function/soft keys (EIGHT).
Have actually stopped using this phone, and gone back to my trusty old SE K750.
Great screen but: you can't get a full screen wallpaper on it;
Comprehensive list of functions but: Nasty navigation and SLOW processing of every function - like it's having an internal debate when you use the camera, or navigate the menu, or start a function, or want to send a text/mms;
Good speakers but: Sometimes the ringtone Slows Down and distorts, even when volume turned down;
Good camera but: very low refresh rate on screen gives 'wobble' effect, slow focus, pictures come out w a distinctive red tint bottom right hand corner, and because of navigation and focus slowness, don't think you can take those impulsive shots, and quality actually only average against K800 and very poor against Sharp 903s 3mp cam;
OK mp3 player but: the most amazingly fiddly and easily tangled earphone set I'd ever had to use (its like a lanyard).
Average usage also means a daily battery charge.
Seriously, the specs looked just fantastic on paper and that's why I got it, but living with it on a day to day basis is a bit of a lesson in frustration - especially if you're moving over from a SE. I wish I'd gone for the K800 now - camera the same, but better cam functionality and Faster.
This is one hell of a sexy phone. But that's it. It looks so good and everyone wants to buy it, but why.
The navigation sucks and so does the camera. You cab get a much better photo with a SE 2mp phone. I bougtht this phone and my little brother has a SE W810i. And when we make a picture, there is absolutely no difference.
Now I am the proud owner of a SE W880i and I don't feel the slighest hint of regret.
So when you buy this phone you should really consider this.
crash crash crash - that's the phones most common feature - most terrible phone ever owned.
this phone's bluetooth does not connect well with an Audi car kit. You will be able to make and receive calls but the phonebook cannot be accessed by the car kit. Also, for some unknown reason the bluetooth connection is sometimes dropped. I also have a Nokia 6230, and I must say that the 6230 bluetooth works perfectly with the same Audi car kit
from all the reviews read, i think the n73's a solid smart phone. i have a sony w810i but i think i need to stepup to the call of the n73. one qustion though, what's the diff.. with the music edition and the original n73.please tell me so that i can decide on which one to buy.
Can u reconfirm your posting. Are u refering to the model N73I or the firmware Nokia N73 (1).
As far as I know, Hong Kong already has the N73 ver for WIFI which is N73I. Since u bought yr phone there it may seems to be so. Thus yr problem with updating maybe.
Else, try what Ali has posted earlier and please do backup yr informations as update with erased all phone memory. Also during update do not get yr phone disconnected.
Would be nice if u could indicate yr Country. good day.

I love this phone but when are Nokia gonna let us have Animated Wallpapers like on Sony's and Samsung's. Thats the only thing left off that I need apart from WiFi.
Loads of phones have animated wallpapers/screensavers Nokia really should make this standard on all phones.

Hi every one,
This is surya, I'm using this phone for the past few months. As per my experience this is the best phone I ever seen it and even consider the battery backup and clarity of the picture. I sincerely suggest you all to go for this piece.
Hey guys no complaining about N73. I have used more than six brands of different phones, but i have found N73 an excellent phone.
Well tech is developing at extremely fast pace and soon the present models will be obsolete, but that one has to Accept.
