Very excited to get my new N73 in the post the other day, and hurriedly ordered my Sandisk 2GB MiniSD card for it as I'm off on weekend to Iceland soon & will be taking TONS of pics with the fab new 3.2mp camera. Trouble is, the phone can't make it's mind up whether it can see the MiniSD card or not.

First of all it says no memory card inserted, then I take it out and try again 3 times until it does find it. So I try formatting it, and it likes that, so I rename it. Then later on I try to move some pictures and it says no memory card inserted again. Again I take it out and put it back a few times and it recognises it. Then when I try to take pictures it says there's no card so it's going to use the phone memory

I've tried the card connected to my PC with the adapter and it's working fine on the PC, so my reckoning is there's a bug in the phone. Has anyone else had a similar problem, and if so could you please let me know how you got round it? I'm close to tears now, as I just got shot of my dreaded K750i that drove me round the bend with it's faults!!!

Hellllp me pleeeease....

Shel
I'm havin the same problem please help us.

It happens also to me, with other brand of miniSD. The solution? Maybe a firmware uograde when available. Until then, make a remove card, without remove, keep the RAM clean as possible and make phone reboots. Not a only solution, but N73 is like that

Hi guys!

Big trouble here...

my N73 doesn't seem to recognize the contacts! I mean the contacts are at their place, but when somebody's calling, it shows only the number of that person ( and not the person's name as normally). Have to mention I've sent the contacts from the old 6680 through Bluetooth. Then 1 by 1 saved from Bluetooth message (Inbox) to Contacts with Options-> "save business card" .

Any solve for that?

Please help!!

Thanks in advance.

Make sure you don't have any duplicate entries in your contacts. If you do, the phone will not know which contact to associate a number with and will just display the number.

This is a Nokia limitation and affects all Nokia phones.

Beer for stuclarck

@stuclark- Thanks alot !! In fact, it had lots of duplication entries, cause' most of the contacts were copied from SIM card, then from old phone memory. I was stupid enough not to think about this.

Works fine now!

Much appreciated !

Hi Guys,
I'm having a problem with my N73 starting up.
Ever since I put a memory card in it (1Gb own-branded from mymemory), it doesnt boot up properly, and any alarms i set do not go off (i turn it off overnight). I tried it this morning without the memory card and it seemed to work fine.

I get the nokia logo on the screen and it doesnt usually go away. it won't turn off either, i have to remove the battery. sometimes it works after 2/3 goes sometimes it takes longer. also sometimes the nokia logo comes up then it goes black then it comes up again and freezes.

I've just re-booted it now and it seem to have started up ok but the last few morning it has failed.

my girlfriend has an N80 and the same memory card and has no problems.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Question A strange & unknown problem with N73

I'm totally freaked out as I have never faced or heard of such problem as I've been using symbian phones for some time now. The problem is I installed some themes a few days back and then after a couple of days I again installed some more themes but found out that the themes I installed earlier has been deleted and been repalced with the newly installed themes. I tried to install the previous themes but the phone says unable to install whereas I can install the new themes easily.

This happened to me twice today as whenever I install new themes the previous themes get deleted and cannot be installed again. It's such a weird problem.

Can anyone help me out me please? I have never faced this problem with my 6630 or N70. Plz any suggestions????

Unhappy Constant resets/restarts

Hi guys

I'm not new here, just not been around much.
Anyways, I have a problem with my N73. In fact it even happens on my 6670 too.
The handsets will sometimes suddenly reset/restart. It mainly happens when replying to SMS's. This happens if the SMS has come from any network including my network (Vodafone). This actually drains the battery somewhat rapidly as well.
I have just recently had the N73 back from Nokia, because it died halfway through a firmware upgrade at a service centre, but it still shows the above symptoms.

Has anyone else come across this problem and is it just one of those buggy things that the Symbian O/S does every so often.

Any ideas welcome.

For N73 install the SMS patch available from Nokia Site - Support pages.
