yes u can get the latest firmwire for free..
go to nokiaeurope(http://europe.nokia.com/A4176089?N73) and download the software updater for your phone.
im using N73-ME the phone is dam sexy and has a very good sound quality and the full black color makes it out of all and it also comes 2GB miniSD card .
This Mobile is Mindblowing You will get every thing you want in a mobile phone .
I read that we can update the software for the N73 to the N73ME, but there maybe some problems could someone share the pros and cons for doing so.
As I am considering doing it.
I've been a Sony K800i user for a few months now... but I got bored of it, so I gambled my money on the N73. Despite the crappier camera, and sound speaker quality, the Symbian OS is quite good. It never gets boring, well at least for now.
I can honestly say the N73 is better than the K800i in general.. and trust me.. I've had Sony Ericsson all my life.. from the Z600 to K750i to the K800i.
If you're a little kid who likes good camera phones, go with the K800i. The N73 is a more reserved phone for the older mature teens out there.
I have a big problem. My n73 offs automatically after 2, 3mins with small blinking dotswhy is that? plz send an firstname.lastname@example.org. I bought it yesterday. please Help me! I am very sad about this !
i have this phone for 3 weeks,and it seems to have a problem:when i use the camera and i save the photos on the memory card it sometimes freezes (rarely),but when i save the photos to the phone mem no problem there(at least it hasn't freezed till now).any1 else having same problem (i have a 256 mb SD) - firmware v3.06188.8.131.52
I tried changing the code back when I first had the problems but the NSU told me the software was up to date and I couldn't do anything about it. Still waiting for the handset to finish what it is doing, whatever that is!
I don't know why many of u people think that k800 takes better photos becouse in the gsmarena batlle in my opinyon n73 is over k800 :D,and......it's nokia...
Wait for N73 music edition , its much better and has a great music quality.B
My N73 alot faster now i have upgrade it the sounds more clear an everyone should try updating there phone,but do not touch your phone while doing it,it might damage your mobile,i am still going to try to find out if i can update my mobile more to get the same music player as the Musical Edition N73,i am sure someone will be offering this software in the near future i hope.

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
to the gooze
just a question for you mate
during the upgrade i changed the product code, now i know it's a code for another country but could i change the code back to euro spec now? if i do will it make any difference?

i followed the instructions there to the letter and it seens ok to me but i'll update you all if i have problems.
but please be very carefull you can kill your phone!!!! have a look through some of the comments first and see if it's worth the risk.
cheers all Bazza
