hi everybody, i'm thinking to buy N73, from previous discussion, N73 dun support A2DP, how about N73 ME? izzit support A2DP?
secondly, the N73 will operating slower? or a bit lad/hang? izzit acceptable for the slower speed for u all guys? for example opening inbox which containing 100++ msg.
update the firmware can help for reducing lag/hang?

thanks for this great device buying it is the best thing i did in my life
I have updated firmware today,I had to change my code because there is no update available for the orignal code number of my fone. So, the update depends upon the code of ur fone.
I changed my code then updated the firmware and then changed my code to the orignal code.
the new firmware has lass ringtones than the old one but fone works a little bit speedy than the older software..thanx
Thanks for the GUY from Dubai. Im now updated! There's a lot of improvement in my phone after i did it.
