hi ppl. i've noticed that the camera hangs most of the times because the mechanical shutter fails to open again after you take a picture and save/delete it.so my guess is that this problem won't be fixed quite soon by nokia via firmware update as it's a more mechanic issue (prey to God and hope this isn't the reason - let it be software). also nokia could have used higher quality materials for the phone,as you would expect at it's price. otherwise it's a damn good phone.
I m using N73 for few months, hang few times and now is all right, not having any prb. Those who having hang prb, maybe can try to refresh, i mean off and on again your N73 everyday, it will reduce or even minimize chance going hang :) , cheers
Help Me plz if u can
M using n73 from 2 months, it was working almost fine till now. this week It hangs 2-3 times and today I put this in offline mode and now it is not changing the profile mode to general or any other mode:I took out battery , changed the sim card , did orignal factory setting,etc etc many times,but It is still in offline mode .The error message is" unable to change the profile" Any help please....
now when I change the profile it crashes and restarts automatically but only in offline mode........help please
to n-series doubt.
n91 has a better more durable joystick than n73. n73's joystick is slippery, and worse, breakable.
Sorry wrong info. Use the on/off button, there is an option for locking keypad. To activate, press unlock then *
now when I change the profile it restarts automatically but in offline mode........help please

Noticeable changes after upgrading to the new N73 firmware (ver3):
1.) Phone can resume normal operations after the camera hangs. Although it does not prevail in re-activating camera mode. A reset is required to be able to access camera again.
Note: in previous version, phone has to be restarted (removal of battery) to allow use of other functions.
2.) Installation of external themes (both 3rd party and original) is made allowable.
Note: Difficulty in installing themes was encountered in previous version.
3.) Video appears sharper when video stabiliser is turned on.
4.) Carousel movement of image viewer changed to "right to left."
1.) Camera will still hang/crash.
2.) When external themes are installed the following bugs are encountered:
2.1-the auto-focus system gets confused and won't lock in.
2.2-"save picture" function won't work.
Note: To resume normal camera "save" controls, exit camera mode first then re-activate using front VGA cam and shoot once.
2.3-sudden auto keylock when in camera mode.
2.4-zooming-in reverts phone to stand-by mode.
Final advise: AVOID installing themes (even those pre-loaded on the N73 CD-ROM)in the phone (either via card or internal memory)
Although I've been using 2 new themes from the N93 and my phone still works fine.
im so confuse because of the comments, but anyway i wanna know if the joystick works good, because i have an experience using a NOKIA 6600 joystick phone which is easily damage, im wondering if the N73 is flexible and durable and easy to move....,i hope that N73 would have an arrow keys instead of joystick....thanks nokia u rock....
hi all ive just got the n73 on vodafone i download themes to my desktop then try to transfer them via the pc suite it starts instaling on the fone then comes up application not accepted contact supplier ??????? help pleze
I work for the Optus network in Australia and sell the N73. I just wanted to say this is the most unreliable phone I have ever encountered in the 3 years I have been here.
I only work 2 days a week yet have returned over 10 of these units. One time I had 3 in a row that wouldn't even turn on meaning the customer couldn't get a N73 because we had no more.
I encourage you to look at other models such as N80/coming N95 or other brands with similar features. Until the software on the N73 is worked out (in which case it would be great) it is more trouble than it is worth, and I am getting sick of sending over 80% back to Nokia within 3 weeks of purchase.
My N73 joystick just broke after use of just 15 days. The Nokia service center super glued it. don't know how long its going to hold. Bad build for a phone in this high price range!!!
can somebody tell me if the n73 music edition sounds louder at music than the k750i????????
hi all!! just bought n73 normal edition yesterday. congrats to all nokian and me.. hehehe. any suggestion or how to convert to music edition.. TQ
Do the following applications work on this phone (3rd edition): Wireless mIrc, Theft, Ultimate Voice Recorder, SymbiSMS+, sCrypto and, of course, THQ Worms? This info is essential for me whether I am going to byu this phone or not. Thanks!
menu > tools > settings > security > phone & sim > autolock period : set time u want to lock the phone.
Hope this help. By the way, how's the volume of your radio reception. Loud or softer as compared to playng songs.

and it seems the best mobile for me
and those who have problems with N73 (not black edition) try to update to music edition
and there will no problems at all
