Hey guys, i've got some problems with my N73 ME. 1st of all when i make a picture the flash comes on, then it turns it self off, and then i click the whole button and i make the picture (don't know why, maybe for the autofocus, can i turn it off? ). How can i view avi files on my phone?
Just a very frank & honest advise.
Against all odds after going through day after day reading all the negative comments. Just like anyone of u still trying to decide whether to buy this phone or not. Go to the shop, compare but still think this phone is still top of your list. Well, maybe I'm just one of those dare devil, listen to my heart and finally got one.
Here is my comment :
built : not that bad (anyway nothing is perfect) Keypad : a bit smaller but hey for a guy with fat finger like mine, I got use to it in 3 hrs. Software problem : everything working satisfactory nad reasonable fast, (touch wood) see no reason to upgrade anything since all well. Pictures : Only one word to describe "unbelieveable". Video : I definitely not comparing it to hollywood standard so above average. Music : like what I say previously garbage in garbage out. Download good quality music have the volume tune up (don't be like scooby doo the dog, eat & eat & eat) be sensible don't expect it to sound like your hifi standard. Then u will be statisfied.
Anyway, all good thing will come to an end. Therefore, make up your mind fast before alls gone and the wait begins again for N ??
Thanks everybody, I'll need to refer to all your comment from time to time just in case my phone decides to test my patience.
I am now on my third N73, having returned the previous 2 due to freezing/hanging issues. O2 refused to change the handset for a different model. Hopefully this time all will be ok. Wouldn't recommend this phone. It's slow and the keypad is tiny. On the upside, it's easy to use (when it works,the battery life is excellent and it looks cool.
I am having N73 ME for last 1 week and i think is the most adorable phone in its segment, it is far better then n80, specially black colour of ME is very sexy. i has got a large screen and video is gr8. It is fast as compared to my earlier n70. The only flaw i noticed till date is that while playing video sometimes it says "system memory full close some applications" but on replaying the video it works perfectly. overall 10/10

Hi there, I m an n91 user, recently one of my fr8nd got an n73ME ,he told me his phone is fine(SW 3.XXXXXXXXXXX)it hangs less but only when he takes continuous pics or after givin a br8k 4 a while he sees his phone or cam. option hangs and so he then has to restart the phone.
So if dr any solution.
plz response.He heard rep of this 4um frm me
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!
To BAZZA & the_gooze,
will u explain the full procedure to upgrade!!will b grateful 2 u. My set version 2.068.0.0.1. Can i get ME on this?
Sounds good. Yeah, most things seem to be ok over here apart from the standby screen and the settings. Vodafone startup screen has gone and until I can sort the settings out have a problem with voda live and cannot access MobileTV. Phone says too many connections open and then closes the Contract MMS and says there is no connection. So, that's that for now.
If it doesn't work said I would phone Christmas day and was told someone poor ****er would be working!!
Tried the update firewall to get to equal the music edition N73 it finally upgraded my mobile did not seem to get it fully upgrade to the full music player ,*#0000# an My N73 shows V3.06126.96.36.199 put to get the full music audio update it should be V3.06188.8.131.52,but i can tell the sounds alot more steroe an everything faster it will keep trying to get it fully done i hope an the dates changed as well to 30.10.2006 all you have to do to get your anti-virus an firewall turned of on your pc or laptop an the nokia software updater searches an finds your phone alot easier an quicker

doesn't appear to be any major probs yet mate the standby screen is fine, i had a bit of trouble accessing vodafone live but i sorted that today. it sends and recieves text and mms as normal.
the added fetures on the music side are first class, rh hand button straight into music player. the balance, stereo widening and loudness are good features too. the visualisation is pretty tidy to you can have album art, oscilloscope and spectrum (the one you see in the ads for x factor)when you play music. overall i'm quite happy with it but it's totally different now i've got rid of the nasty vodafone software. if i get any probs i'll let you know.
Glad to hear it went well. So no probz with the standby screen or the settings. Assuming you now have the ME edition.
Hi all, Ive been reading the comments, i checked this phone out but cannot make a decision to buy the phone or not? please advise? Thank You!
All N73 users,
I've been reading this thread for quite awhile and I'm puzzled as to why Nokia is not addressing all these issues that u people who paid hard cash for the phone and yet have to resort to trial & error, to the point of begging for help, to the point of killing your expensive phone to solve the problem. So many question raised here about the phone should have been clearly stated in the description of the phone on Nokia website, yet none has brought this to the attention of Nokia. They are the ones who wants to sell the phone to you right so well be at their mercy.
My suggestion boyc.t their n Series phone till they resolve their issues stated here. Else other models with better features & prices will be coming out soon.
A food for thoughts for all N73 users just in case you are too desperate to make your phone working normally. Unity is strenght !!!!
can i snap all the way to take pictures rather than depress halfway then all the way
