I've had my N73 for a month now. And I've got to say it's a great phone. It isn't perfect of course, but it has been satisfactory.
No problems with the joystick for me. Works fine. Camera lens cover is still working tightly. I guess the physical aspect of the phone is still in top condition.
The slowness of the phone is an irritation however. Especially when it comes to the camera and picture/video gallery. There's a new firmware available that is said to enable faster processing, yet to download that. So I hope that would at least make it less slow.
using a 1gb or 2gb memory card wont affect your n73's performance. as with oki i also placed my music files from my ipod nano to my phone with a 1gb memory card and the phone still works fine.
it seems that your phone has lot of defects and some are hardware which cant be solve by firmware upgrades. i suggest you return your phone to the dealer and replace it before the warranty expires.
I have been using the N73 for several months and am happy with it. It can be 'better' if the startup to the camera is quicker, and if it has a stylus, but I accept that there is no 'perfect' phone because everyone's needs are different. As far as being a phone and a PDA is concerned, Nokia is doing better than the other phones I've used (but not as good as my Treo 650 - however, there are several areas that the Treo is not as good as the n73). Photo quality is great; if I know I need to bring a camera, then I will bring a 'real' camera, and so as far as taking surprise photos and with no 'real' camera with me, the n73 camera is very useful and gives good quality photos. The sound, the reception and all other features are all great stuff. I have no problems with the joystick, and the phone never hang during calls. I am happy with the phone, but now I am waiting for the N95. BTW I am using a 2Gb mini SD card and it works well...I have stopped using my iPod nano and transferred all music to the n73 - my pocket is now lighter.
Where to download free software for my n73.. any prog is not working from previous versions... Instead of this fact the Phone is just great!!!
For the person with the phone that shuts off when answering a call, turn off the 3D sounds. I had the same problem.
hey i have this phone and sometimes when i answer a call it just turns off for a sec so i can answer. I read about this b4 and someone knew how to stop it please can you tell me thanks. apart from that this phone is great/
What r u talking about i live in egypt and all my life used Nokia Phones from 5110 to N70 6280 6630 6680 ..etc .., never had a single problem with all of them ..on the contrary nokia is an example of how a fone should be ... i'm planning to get N73 by the new year eve. and i'm sure it gonna work fine as all other models i had ...
The onething that should be different the firmware that comes in the middle east is different from other contenents the ME firmware works best ...so if u wanna upgrade ur firmware go to the middle east version its always FREE of bugs it called MEfw/Eufw or somethin like that... otherwise don't ever compare nokia to any other brand ...

i dont know if you havent noticed that sending sms is slow. but when you download the sms accelerator, it would speed up sms sending. go to the nokia website and look for software then find the sms accelarator and download it then install it in your phone.
Is that true that the shuttle sound cant be switch off, even in slient mode when taking photos?
Hi Lyn, kabayan! Maganda ang N73 but I think N91 is better, especially the music player and the hard drive. And of course the design, very stunning.. But just like everything else, it has its cons. Quite disappointed, yet contented.
