Nokia marketing strategy is very poor ! Why should the users need to pay if they need to record extended voice ? The original recording length is only 1 min. And you need to pay extra for downloading extended recorder from website. Secondly, if you do multiple zoom for more than 1 photo, you will receive "low memory" warning. The only way out is to reboot the whole phone. The phone memory cannot be upgraded except the memory card can upgrade up to 2Gb. But, memory card cannot replace phone memory, so the low memory problem cannot be resolved. This is absolutely a design flaws ! Seems N73 is not a proven designed phone !! The 3.2Mpixels are bullshit gimmics. The quality sucks. However, the close up snap is really great. So, this phone cannot replace DC. The voice recording quality is very poor compare to my very old SE T32 model even I set my phone in WAV type.
As of now, I did not see any response from Nokia to response to these common problems.
Where is the Music Edition of this unit which is supposed to be black in color? Please let me know where's this model available (especially those living in Europe). I believe it's not available yet anywhere else in the Middle East.
Hi all, I have just upgraded firmware through NSU (Nokia Software Updater) via PC and now my mobile is showing version as:

I bought this my N73 yesterday. (Today is 13/11/06) The first glimpse of this phone, when I broke the seal box was "This aint big enough as I saw pics of it on Internet. Once I was out of the shop, the only things I did whole day then was taking pics , pics and lots of pics! (I m sincerely thankful to two frdz of mine who modelled for every pic! =] ) The best thing about this phone is its "3.2 mp camera" It takes cool pics. Though I was bit disappointed by the Radio quality I heard. I m yet to check music on it. Today I used "web browser" and I find it Awesome! U can open any email site and directly upload ur snapped pics as attachment from ur phone!! Now this is a cool thing to share photos instantly.
I am yet to "discover" a lot of things abt my new gadget n I m sure each discovery will be exciting! =)

I tried to update my firmware by using pc suite and Nokia updater, & of course USB supplied cable. With PC suite it got connected then when you try to connect the updater pc suite got disconnected. I dont know the reason but I tried so many times over N over again. I cant complete the updating because when I tried to connect the updater it is disconnected again N again from the pc suite connection. I tried other connection (bluetooth,Infra) but no avail. Does anybody has D same problem? plese help. Nokia what shall I do to solve this problem so I can update my N73 with the latest Firmware. Is there any other means.
What can i say except that i am sick and tired of the n series from nokia.. within the last 15mnths i have owned the n90, n91, n80, and the n73.. waste of money.. I had the same freakin problem with all the units. After about 4-5 days of moderate to heavy text messaging, i would have to reset the phones because it would take too long for it to send.. i'm switching back to a windows mobile device..i'm sick of the excuses from nokia.. just a heads up for those of you that are thinking of purchasing an n series phone.. By the way, i'm sure the same problem will occur in the upcoming n95..
I got the N73 back in August, I was very impressed with it, even though I thought it was a little slow, now for the past week, whenever anyone tries to ring me, the phone switches itself on and off, not happy with it so I am sending it back to my mobile provider for a new phone, thank god I took out insurance on it, I have told them I want a different phone as the software on the N73 isn't all it's cracked up to be.
Anyone having trouble with the pc connector go to nokia.com an then you tell them you can not connect your phone an they will repair the pc connector for you straight away it only takes a couple of minutes an then you can use the nokia pc suite easily i did that today

Tips / undocumented functions:
- At the top of the main-menu and every folder, the keys 1 to 9 are shortcuts to the icons 1-9
- A shortcut on the left menukey in standby-mode will take more time to open than a shortcut on the right menukey. Reason: The left key is also used for the keylock so it shortly waits for pressing the * button.
- While writing text press and hold "#" to switch between Alpha mode and Number mode. You can also press a key long to insert its number.
- In standby-mode, press and hold 0 to launch your wap home page.
- If you have your keylock activated just press the on/off button to turn on your backlight to look at the time when it's dark without having to unlock the keypad.
- To keep the backlight on, run Torch (freeware), press and hold the Menu button and go somewhere else on the phone.
- To check your current firmware version simply type *#0000# in standby screen.
- To check your IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) type *#06# in standby screen.
- To check your Bluetooth device address type *#2820# in standby screen.
- Start up in Safe Mode (no 'auto start' apps will be running): Hold down the pencil key when you turn on the phone and hold it on until you have to enter your PIN code.
- Format the phone memory by typing *#7370# in standby screen.
- In standby mode,
45# + dials the number on your sim in memory slot 45.
50# + dials slot 50 and so on.
why create this phone without wifi and upnp in this day and age those this phone really worth it , the camera is great but thats it. n80 is better ! and far more go for the n95 when it releases it has everything automatically # 1
if anyone is deciding between this and K800i get this or if you have any spare left get the N80 instead becuse it has abit more features WI FI UnNp
i bought a full black housing of music edition from ebay and i fit it to the phone. now is perfect with the full black colour, try some ebay sellers to buy the black housing. its amazing
I am impressed with the size and camera resolution, however not very happy with the phone software as the phone hangs, switch off automatically and viewfinder scrolling become slow after i receive 10 mms continuously. now my sms "sending message" time slows down a lot. (btw phone memory is 40mb - i only store my things in memory card)
Please help. I was changing setting on my N73 for the T-mobile zone, and now my PC won't recognize my N73 for the Nokia PC Suite. What can it changed that my PC no longer recongnize my N73. Thanks.
