you can listen to mp3 through ur bluetooth but it is not going to be stereo because the phone does not support a2dp. the music will sound more like a conversation. you cannot listen to radio through bluetooth because the phone has to have a conneted headset or adpter to act as antenna
my FW ver. is also 2.06184.108.40.206 .. actualy it is my second N73 the first one had very crapy software (dunno the ver.)
With this firmware is working without problems about 3 weeks so far.
Yes, you can use 2g memory cards. Or atleast they used one in a review.
can i use 2 gig miniSD for this phone?? i plan to buy 2 gig sandisk, just want to make sure it compatible..n e one have idea?
....or with any other bluetooth headset devices such as the Sonorix OBH-0100?
Is the phone compatible with the motorola HT820 blue-tooth headset? Can one listen to both FM and mp3 music using the HT820 with this phone?
what a nasty SE k500i luk-alike. scrn(actually 2 big 4 da phone) is slightly bigr than n80, but res. is much lower on n73 which m8 da pixels BIG & mor visible. n80: finest quality display. they hav almost 4gotten about little keypad, then it got squeezd in @ da bottom. also no wi-fi. carl zeiss m8s no big dif. as on brick n91. if u wanna know sumtin... go 4 the ultimate N80 - YOU can't go wrong !!
N73 cost me 550$ and tedious bargain but as Nokia phones r nowadays haunted for Bugs,there was it. Its camera cover loosened up within 2 weeks.Now it rattles with every ring/vibrate its large screen gives an impression of PDA but its not.Why the Hell Nokia not realised that bugs free and camera resol plus britness(dull)has become its trademark../...
plain and simple ---- symbian OS will always have bugs...N73 auto restarted on me once..application hanged up on me once...but i accepted this risk because its symbian and a smart phone....
K800 is NOT a symbian or a smart phone....
bottomline...if you just want a plain mobile phone with a digicam and a music player...go for k800...if you want more downloadable features....get the N73...
if you are on cost...get K800..but the memory card M2 is not yet available on stores...and is expensive if you buy one...
if you want cool phone balancing business and multimedia on a phone..get N73...
as for me.. i made my choice and the risk...its N73 for me....
i bought this phone ono week ago,i think the sound is loud and clear,but the sound n 6233 is better
I got my n73 today.
It's fantastic, I'd say to anyone wanting to buy, ignore what others say negatively about the phone and find out for yourself, play with a demo unit to get a feel of the physical form, and ask the clerk to show you a real model if you're more serious about buying. My store had one real model behind the counter that they would demo for customers who asked.
Obvsiously read a bunch of reviews and specs to know what the phone is like in general. But it'll never be as good as testing it yourself, frankly I've never had a better phone in my life and alot of the negatives people give the phone don't bother me at all. I think it looks great, if you haven't seen it in real life, don't comment because from pictures I thought it average but in real life it's just something else.
I haven't had it long enough to experience the joystick falling off, or the camera cover becoming loose but at the moment they seem very sturdy, the joystick looks like one whole piece? I'm not sure how it "falls off"? and the display models still have perfect joysticks, I can't imagine how roughly used they are, I put a little mark on one to make sure it's the same one I see everytime.
Anyway my final 2 choices were k800i and n73, I spent about 3weeks reading about both and waiting for articles to come out etc, I played with both real models and tested both cameras etc, in the end I went with n73 but I still would highly recommended the k800i to any of my friends. It's all personal choice!
The call recording is posible on this phone without a special aplication?
Any tips on using the joystick?? i keep accidntally pressing down wn im navigating
I currently have a N91, N73 and the 8800. I have used the N80 and N70. After using the N70 and N80 I decided that I would never buy a lower N series phone from Nokia!!!!When the N73 came out I just could not resist the temptaion of buying this phone! And I was surprised with the N73. It was a pleasant surprise. The OS is super fast. For people who have used the above mentioned phones, the OS just blows those phones away. The camera is great and its hard to believe that the sound quality of the N73 is better than the N91, which is supposed to be Nokia's music phone. The battery life is awesome. I think you can easily get upto 5-6 hours of talk time. All these features make this phone mind blowing. The only downside of the phone is the aesthetic look. Looks like any other normal phone but trust me it is soooo much more than that. Just love the phone. Looks like I will be getting rid of my N91 and will replace it with the P990i. Yippeee a new phone again. hehe
i had an n80 for about two months and was very disappointed with its performance so i decided to trade it in for a n73. i've had it for about a week now and i'm very much satisfied with its performance. its fast and very responsive just like my n70 but with more features. this handset comes highly recommended!
The problem with phones is that you can't please everyone. Someone wants a slider or a flip or a candybar. Someone else is more interested in the camera than the phone side and vice versa. This one says this phone is too big and or heavy and then complains the keypad is too small. The manufacturers are trying to please as many people as they can and can often end up pleasing no-one.
Just decide what you want from a phone and go for the least worst option.
Don't think about it for too long though because the next three models are being planned even as post all these remarks and opinions.
You can't please everyone and it is not in the manufacturer's interests to do so. If they make the perfect phone then nobody will buy the next model.
To all you people who want to find out if the N73 is the right phone to get go to www.mobile.review.com an theres two sections explaining about the handset an then the camera an you will then be able to decide to get the N73 or not,i will tell you its the best one out right now an really glad i got this Number ONE mobile cheers ANDY
Very clear words in the N73 review,
-Loose camera cover.
I didnt really need to read the plastic point cause i already posted a comment about it here, i said before its so NOT good & i knew it will be mentioned in the review as well. it was so clear that its plastic is so bad & cheap the moment i 1st used the N73.
On the other,i find my self shocked to know about the loose cover & the joystick.
NOW,why did it say in the review N73 is the best in market even better than N80!!? i cant really answer this alone,but i think N73 got more bad points than N80 does. so i guess N80 is still way better,ater all, there is no use of N73's lens cover if it gets loose in about a week or so.
what do you think guys, should i give up my N80 for the N73 or should i wait untill we see more facts about this N73????
and which do you really think is better???
It would be really nice if you could help(anybody)
