Changing the Front Fascia is easy just have a credit card to help you an just lift up the corner part near the number 9 buttons an put your card under it then slowly easy up the front fascia it comes off easily,the back part is the hardest part you can see the six screws to easily undo but theres one screw under the screen so i did not do this myself i sent to the nokia service centre an they did it for me,the fascia off Ebay are superb an theres one seller offering black buttons with the full fascia in Black an buy off this seller,in Black the N73 looks Superb

I'm from Spore..Hope to give some frank reviews on my latest purchase of N73. Prior to this phone, I bought K800i (still keeping it!) and I must say it gives superb pleasing picture quality to the eye, the software is stable and it's a hassle free phone if u're someone who needs a phone to work its basic function (But I do wanna mention that at times the screen will just black out after a few seconds at any point in time..just a push of joystick brings it back again- abit irritating sometimes..), However,it lacks the front screen display of calendar functions which I have always like it on nokia symbian phones. Upon using it for about two weeks, I noticed the phone started to slow down, may hang upon accessing to gallery and even switching among applications. Take note that I don't download unncessary applications to the phone, in fact I only download those payable ones from nokia software market. Regardless, the phone is still slowing down.. Thus, I downloaded the nokia software update at home and was crossing my finger that my N73 won't die on me in the process of updating!, infact it's easy to do and just follow the steps, anyone could do it. ;) No need for the hassle to bring it to nokia care centre for them to assist updating, not to mention the waiting time..Now, my phone works perfectly and it's so much faster than before and accessing in and out of gallery doesn't hang the phone anymore. So I suggest, for those who are going to get this phone, see if u can the software version:
If not, just do the updating yourself! ;)
Hope the above info is useful for those who are buying it in Spore. ;)

how easy is it to change the covers on the phone mate, i really like the n73 in black but i don't think i could get one off nokia at the moment. are the ones off ebay decent quality?
anyway, had my n73 for 6 weeks now and apart from 2-3 restarts (only while texting) it's been superb i can't fault the features or the speed of the software. i really like it nice one nokia.
If I update my N73 to N73ME, will it format Memory Card or the programs that I have installed will remains in the Phone??...thanx
just bought N73 music edition
comes with 2GB
cool green theme
software is really fast like its not symbian
firmware is up to date
surround sound is great
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.
