go to profiles, select the "offline" profile. your fone is now a multilmedia device an has no GSM/ 3G functionality. To restore - go back to profils and select the "online" option.
After reading the previous posts about the 'offline' profile (for when on a plane) i tested mine.I can use everything normally except the radio???it tells me "unable to use network,phone is currently offline" well der! Maybe here in Oz u need access to ur network for radio signal,but i dont see why??Any ideas?Please test yours & let us know.Ta :)
My version is V2.06184.108.40.206
Nokia N73 (94.01)
(the latest i think)
Not slow,theres a hint of lag/delay when changing through applicatons(especially if uve got the camera involved)but nothing thats gonna worry u,we're talkin a second or two max.You can reboot/reset ur phone which apparently speeds it up again but ive had no need to yet.Ive read that some people are having problems with slow smsing with the old firmware (0.0.1) but i think the update has rectified this as i dont have any delay.When sending an sms ,immediatley after u press 'send' the phone returns back to the main screen & for a brief second theres a 'L' shapped arrow that appears letting u know ur message is 'sending'.No delay here though not even with multiple pages.Top Phone!

This "my phone is getting slower" thing concerns me a bit, as I am getting this in a few days.
Could someone how don´t experience this after meny weeks of use please tell us your firmware version. And the ones who have got this problem could also tell us their firmware. Thanks
could N73 users pls give their firmware versions(including country of purchase) and wether they had any problems with the firmware.
NOO!! My N73's starting to get slow now :( what can i do with it? Oh, and my memory card suddenly erm, didnt work after i set a password on it. Any ideas why?
yes, you can play anything like music or radio etc except calls when you set the phone offline. its pretty convenient than the se features.
i bought my n73 from 3G australia, all accessories, headset and 128mb sd was included in the package, and my phone never hang or slow or anything, great phone
I do not know how the W800 functions. However, if you are interested to know whether the mobile phone can play mp3’s without a SIM card or if you can stop reception and still use it as an mp3 player (like on an airplane) then I can tell you for sure that you can do that. There is an “offline” option which allows you to use the multimedia aspect of the phone without the device being used as a phone (receiver/transmitter turned off). If you remove the SIM card you can still turn the phone on and it will work normally, again, without any phone capabilities.
my n73 is really really slow ... i got it reformatted already and its starting to send slow again.... im going back to SE ..
Oh and lastly, when you buy the n80 its comes with the necesary stuff nided lyk the headset, a 128 or / 512 Minisd card. the N73 doesnt come w free stuff you still need to purchase those things...
In my opinion, the N80 is still FAR BETTER THAN the N73. Why? Because its GOT WI FI. 2ndly you could hardly see the difference if it wer a 3.2 and a 3 Megapix cam, its just in the packaging. 3rd, the video of the n73 is very choppy, hell My N80 Doesnt skip frames as bad as this. And the captured video is smaller than the n80's when its played on the PC. You want a good video recorder? get the n93 or wait next year for the n83 which is a 5megapixel DvD recording cam fhone, far better than the n93.
I eveny thought of changing my n80 to the n73 BUT WHEN I READ THE REVIEW i changed my mind completely, Ill just Get the N83 next year Hahahahha.
the Mp3 player cant detect songs from sub-folder.....? so all the songs have to store together?
