why do people always seem to pull mobiles down on these pages,the camera cover is o.k as long as you take care of it an better than the k800i one thats why i sent that phone back ,the n73 is a very good mobile indeed ,the sounds of the speakers is loud the camera superb an i am sure nokia will be putting better flashes on there mobiles now to make there cameras even better,to take better care of your lens cover buy a clear crystal case of Ebay or any where else to take could care of your mobile phone an screen,still no news of the MEXN73 but its Xmas nextmonth so i am sure Nokia will release the Black N73 to get better sales with it release date
had my N73 for a week now and as a mobile phone it's first class does everything you ask of it without problems. great screen, no txt message probs, battery time superb.
but got a new 2gb memory card 2 days ago and this is where my problems started it was supposed to be fast 133x but since putting it in i've had the camera slow up considerably as it waits to save to said card even looking at the photos afterwards you have to wait an age for then to open and i'm not talking 10-15 seconds i'm talking 30+ secs each photo.
as for playing mp3s it's brilliant but once again the memory card gave me probs when transfering music to it it took an age.
now i really like the phone but if this is what a memory card does then i'll be pretty pissed and it will go back to vodafone and i'll stick to my w810.
if anyone has any ideas them please let me know asap.

Thanks for the excellent review!
Also noted that many users who posted in gsmarena are happy with their N73s. However, on many of the other sites (by searching on google), it is observed that most of the users have serious problems with their N73s - like they had to visit Nokia Care 5 times, got their phone motherboards changed, upgraded the firmware, etc. but to no good.
Could this be similar to what happened with the Nokia 3230? One huge lot of faulty phones (with hardware problems) was shipped by Nokia and most of them were returned by users after much cursing.
Also it is noted that many of the users say that "I'm having this mobile since xx months and it's working fine ... etc. etc. etc" i.e. those who bought the phone few months back are happy with it as the phone has fewer or no problems, but those who bought the phones RECENTLY - have problems - e.g. "I just bought this phone few days back and it doesn't work even after changing firmware, mainboard ... etc. etc. etc ... It's a waste of money ... etc. etc. etc.".
Could it be another faulty lot by Nokia (with hardware faults)?
Also after reading opinions for other Nokia phones (N80, E61, etc) you can see very similar problems. Is it a generic S60v3 problem? Or phone specific? With more and more Nokia phones coming in, phone stability is taking a nose-dive downwards.
Any comments on this?
I'm planning to change from 6630 to N73, but got really scared after reading about the phone being unstable/crashing. Also, in my country, it's next to impossible to prove to the Nokia Care people that the phone DOES have problems, forget getting it fixed. They are just too arrogant and refuse to accept it! Their only aim is to sell the phones. Once sold, their job is done, they don't care what happens after that. So if I get a faulty N73, I'm totally wasted. I was thinking of N80/E61, but they too have similar stability problems, although not on such a scale.
Any comments, guys?
I've had the N73 since September of this year; I'm using it with Cingular. Overall, it's a solid phone..great display, great functionality, well-made. My only issues with the phone are..1) it has lag time when switching between apps on the phone 2) and yes, the camera cover is getting loose. 3) it doesn't have a re-occuring alarm. Other than those three reasons, pointing anything else out would be nit-picky. What's considered a "perfect phone" or close to perfect phone to one person; isn't so with the next person. With that in mind and all things considered..I'd definitely recommend the N73.
i had n73 for 2 months its garabage, says gallery full cannot upload, i also put a 2g memeory chip in there, when i take pics it goes to to the main screen, the most glitched phone i used ever!
N73. What can i say...... This is a fantastic phone, camera quality is great, MP3 play back is awesome.
Did find that it can start to be a little slow when sending SMS but just down load the SMS excelorater for free from the Nokia web site and all those problems are gone.
If you find you'd like an automatic key gaurd then ypou can also get this software from Nokia at a cost.
All these people who say the lense cover is becoming loose stop complaining if you want something you can throw around get yourselves an 5500 Sport or if thats too high tech get the 5140i
hi, i have had this phone since august, its working perfect, no loose camera cover, not much software problem, some people that the phone works very slow i guess they use occupy too much of the phone memory, try to move some to the external memory. i recently started using the yahoo!go in my mobile, excellent, yahoo mail and yahoo messengeron the go, cool. not the wap mobile mail or messenger....and there are many more, except one fact that the joystick top starts showing da bronze color after so many usage. guys take care of it by using some cover protection.
1. you can press “*#0000#” to check your phone version, mine is: v2.0622.214.171.124
nokia n73 (77.02)
2. you cank lock your key and phone both, dont worry about that.
3. I used to have the phone hangup on receiving phone calls, but then i switched off da 3d caller tone effect, i never happens, and the tone sounds never less.
i would suggest this phone to people who really like mobile phones, not the camera, i just bought a nice digital camera, no mobile camera can compete.
just a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down, medicine go down! nokia rules forever, spring break!
hey guy's how can i check which version of firmware i,m running and is it safe to download upgrades of the net
Can the n73 play videos? Because the official website said it did not have the Real One Player. Can someone please answer? Thanks in advance.
Am going to trade-in my 6 mths old O2 Atom and get myself this N73. Hope I am making the right choice having been frustrated with O2's useless 2MP camera. (Take some 5 secs to record the picture after you press the shutter.) Also hate the way Windows work - having to close those programs that are kept 'alive' after quiting.
Aaah... and this morning my O2 Atom recurring alarm failed to ring. Also can't use MP3 as ringtone. Had to convert them to WMA before coying them to the RING folder.
Hope N73 is good choice.
i don't know whats wrong with you guys but i have no problem with my camera lense cover, it fits tightly even one month after use. As for the photos taking at night, I usually snap my objects like 2 metres away from the cam and i dont find a problem with it.
Unless you people use the camera like a baboon, i dont find any trouble with the camera lense cover. Good battery, better speed and performance with software compared to previous versions, but nokia can do much better i say.... seriously, stop complaining about the camera lense cover :-)
yes.N73 seems to be the perfect hp but then,not perfect enough for a hp freak like me.cause i like to use hp to its fullest potential.only backdraw is that when listening to music,if we use a bluetooth stereo headset,its not stereo.Where else SEK800,Samsung E870n even thai hp brand Imobile 902 has built in stereo bluetooth.never mind.no hp is perfect.
