I have had the N73 for +/- 6 weeks now. Freezes quite regularly. Mostly when trying to edit a video, when saving pictures. Not had a problem with sending sms. Quality of pictures are extremely exaggerated, colours are not true. I tried to update firmware to V3.0704 (as was informed by 'Tricia' in an earlier opinion), but Nokia software updater states that the version I am running is the most current (V2.0628) !
How do I get this new version?
can we make some changes in this forum? instead of keep telling this phone is good/bad, why not suggest idea on how can we utilize this phone since we have bought it.
For example install YBrowser can hide photo, install Blacklist can block ppl from calling us w/o they knowing we block them..etc
oh ya, i notice when i set the camera quality to the lowest, the quality of the image looks better/great.
thanks for your help. just wondering now that ive found a firmware to update my n73 to an n73ME would i need to backup my phone as it didnt mention on the site. thanks again
hi, i had the nokia n73 for a while now, but i cant seem to make a picture taken with the camera to be a fullscreen wallpaper. it always shrinks it. Plz if anyone would give me the solution to this
you should backup everything on fone to memory card, on top of those already on card.
once firmware is updated, all things are wiped out, and you should find ur fone funtioning faster with no hangs
u guys make me sick, if u own a nokia, fine, if u own a SE, fine. get a life and stop comparing phones. in 2-3 yrs, u will all have diff phones by then....give me a break and move on
@ Shayn, u obviously havent used a K800, you would knw that the K800 is a Multi-tasking enabled phone,leting you run as many Games, Applications, Camera, Web Browser all at the same time u cn run 3GAMES 3APPLICATION, the Camera, the WEB BROWSER all at the same time or more, the fact is the K800 atleast has a Xenon Flash, sumthn else you have knw clue of is that K800 is runing the new Java Platform-7 with added supliments, it lets the phone run Applications in Wallpaper this is nw used by the TODAY SCREEN MOBYDAY which is a TODAY SCREEN meant for JP-7 phones and Symbians, BUT at the end of the day they are CAMERA PHONES!! thats the main focus! if you want music get a Walkman Phone, N73 an K800 are CAMERA PHONES!! CAMERA!!
i agree with what you say
"the slow response time for thecamera and an LED flash isn't good enough for me"
but not this
"I would choose the k800i any day because the software is more stable,"
you should know that SE also use Symbian, ( Symbian UIQ ), so if Symbian of Nokia is not stable, i guess it is coz they are putting too many stuffs onto 1 device, unlike SE.
some help. i just recently got the new firmware and when i went to restore my backed up files its says not enough memory whys thats? do i backup phone and memory card or just the one of them? also would all of my new app be deleted if i update in the future? thanks for your help
Much has been said about the rivalry between N73 and K800i. I have to admit, N73 has an impressive look, great applications, big screen, long battery life. It looks apealing the the feminine taste as well. However, I chose the k800i for these reasons: in my country, Nokia Cellphones are very popular and, you have greater chances of getting robbed if a mugger sees you brandishing your nokia on the streets. between a Nokia and a Sony Ericsson, the N73 is a bit too big to fit in my pocket. I am a photography enthusiast. the slow response time for the camera and an LED flash isn't good enough for me. My friend's N73 takes about 15 secs to send an SMS. too slow for a sms freak. she had to install a software to speed things up. For someone like me who has a whole range of gadgets to use, not just a phone, I would choose the k800i any day because the software is more stable, better camera and smaller form factor. i do the document editing/reading with my pda. but, if you are a person who wants to keep everything in one gadget, this is the phone to die for. it's lightweight as compared to the older nokias, the screen is big enough for you to do presentations for clients with powerpoint,and the camera is good enough for general purpose photography. if this thing came with a stylus, you would have a pda phone. but, just leave enough memory space to avoid getting stuck. :)
Well K800/K810 der only Camera Phone! N73 is a Smartphone it has camera exactly as K800/K810 with Carl Zeis Lens. Also n73 is best for music (supporting wma.aacplus). on n73 u can install softwares such as windows messenger, real player, flash player etc n SE u cant.
So my question back to u Tsepz wat would u want a boring SE phone or a phone for Multitasking purpose? i can even play Sega Mega Drive games on my n73 :)
Got my n73 me i'm telling u guys this phone is great. 1 ques though. Anyone know how to upgrade the flashplayer and how to download windows mediaplayer? Thanks for you'll help.
upgrading ur firmware help a lot ur cell becomes much more faster n more efficient....update it through nokia software updater ...n let me know ....chears
Name just one software that k800i can install that is better than N73.
Don't chicken out.
Some of the worst software I've seen in a long time and the joy stick falls off.
Over priced too, K800 is superior in every way.
Nokia really have lost the plot
tj,,,n6233 has a bigger video recorder (640 x 480)but the n73 has 352 x 288 video recorder, the n73 has a bigger screen & better battery life but you say you are a teen so it sounds like you want to record your mates & play your music from the loudspeaker so its a shame the moto e398 is not still on sale as it was really loud !!I have a n6131 thats loud but its also screechy & your question on phones going out of date WELL the minute you buy one these days it out of date,,Suppose im not much help but thats why ive got so many phones trying them all out..MAYBE gsm arena could do a fight out to see which fone has the loudest sound in dB ???
