My uncle happens to be a Cellphone dealer, so I hope the confusion ends here........
From what i'v read all over the net orestes is right. I have a normal silver N73 and it's RM-133...nothing to do with ME or not...(and he didn't say the hardware was different, but clearly the firmware is)

Yes,the base hardware is same.
Some people have easily flashed regular Silver N73s with Music Firmware.
RM-133 is music firmware, and also compatiable with regualr N73

dear,
i own a black n73 which is rm133`
quite a few of my friends own regular n73(silver,plum;red,white versions)`
they all are rm 132
there is nothing about the 3g issue here.all n73s support 3g . We are indians and 3g networks are not yet available.but n73s irrespective of their firmware,fully supports 3g

please confirm the facts before posting,you better not confuse these noobs here.

i didnt say n73 didnt support 3g...
it's just that the product code determine the software capability
it's like 132 is unregistered to use the 3g by default..and often seen within phone in the countries that didnt use 3g widely..

@BHVM

"Dear Mr. Kakad,

Thank you for e-mailing Nokia Care.

This e-mail is in reference to the phone software of Nokia N73. . We regret the inconvenience caused due to misinformation provided in our previous mail. We would like to inform you that RM-132 phone type is meant only for India.

Further, you may kindly note that N73 with phone type RM-132 does not support WCDMA.



For further enquiries, please feel free to contact our Technical Support blah blah blah"

Exclamation Is this not a NEW FIRMWARE thread?

Please note, there is a PHONE ISSUES & PROBLEMS thread going.
There's also a thread for PRODUCT CODES & what it supports, etc.

This thread was intended to keep track of new firmware releases & possible bugs in new releases. NOT a forum for discussing phone capabilities, etc.

It's rather annoying going through pages of who thinks what, just to see if new firmware has been released.

I happened to be one of the poor victims of 4.0750 (pulled shortly after release), which makes restoring phone backups impossible, amongst other things.

So everytime I get an e-mail that there's been a new post to this thread, I get very excited, thinking that new firmware has been released.

Thanks guys. Don't want to moan, but sure some of you will agree with me.

Cheers

O ho!
so its Nokia behind the conspirancy here!
They keep boasting about the 'excellent' 3G capacities on N73 in general!
Its nowhere mentioned by them that RM132 was a Non 3g one!
What made me more angry that even dealers(My uncle) was too unaware of the catch. The specs for 'ALL' N73 are same except for Firmware,Color and package accessories.

And if Rm132 does not have 3G, Whats the front facing camera for? Just to pee on it!?

damm! I HATE YOU NOKIA! Nokia is a CHEAT!

Maybe they should change their name to something like...
BOKIA- Disconnecting People.

I agree with ouq77.This thread is only for discussing about new firmwares and sorry if I am replying here.

I have figured out a way to convert the N73-5 RM-132 which is a Non-3G variant to N73-1 RM-133.

Visit the thread below:

http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/forum...ad.php?t=72134

Please stop replying to this thread if you are a N73-5 RM-132 owner and cannot see the UMTS and Dual band options in Network menu.This problem is now fixed by me.

This new firmware (4.0812.4.0.1) sucks, before (w/ 4.0735.3.0.2) after startup i had 20 to 21MB free ram and settled down to 13 or so, now it starts off at under 17 and settles at 8. Wouldn't mind as much if the performance increased too but it's hardly noticeable. No point in being able to run multiple apps if it just closes them in the background without warning!
PS: 4.0812.4.0.1 was released 21-03-2008

thanks so much for letting us know.seems as if v4.08 is not worth an update.and the ram management wits all nokias is still pathetic. Multitasking is just useless as it keeps shutting apps in background. Dann you can't even play music and surf together! Mine is still v4.0736 black

Hello there,
Altough 73 v4.07x firmware boasts of some 19mb ram on boot, it still leaks a lot and falls downs to 9~8 Mb soon.
I can multitask when i reboot the phone,but the joy is short lived.Otherwise fine;And yeah, The macro photos from my Phone are the best in world when it comes to Phone cameras.

Hmmm... not sure there. My multi tasks fine all the time. no need for re-boot. but i do reboot my phone about once every 3 days anyway. Kepps it lasting longer.

However- i have just upgraded firmware on n95 from orange branded v13.0.0.4 to generic v21.0.0.x and not my n95 is running sluggish where before it was instant. so dunno, maybe strange things going on.

By the way, i found that LIFEBLOG, even if you have never used it, causes huge memory consumptio. Dunno why, but the lifeblog hiddem log (y-browser) randomly takes up huge c drive memory which cant be deleted easily (as it says always in use). However i never have ram memory leak problems.
