Question about Nokia N73 Cellular Phone

Nokia N73 support on several niggling problems

My Nokia N73 often gets switched off unexpectedly and suddenly without me doing anything. Is there a loose connection? What should I do?

Also can you help me how to activate and manage the anti-virus and the methods to prevent virus attacks.In case of virus attacks or other such problems what is the best remedy. Do I have to reformat the memory card and phone memory in that case or take it to a customer care?

Another interesting problem is that the memory card slot is loose and opens up always leading to inconvenience on my part.

Hello there. The anti-virus programs available today for n73 ****, meaning they're almost useless.

What you need to do is format your phone memory. That'll get rid of all viruses stored, and probably fix that "restart" problem you've been having (unless it's a hardware problem). Remove your memory card before you do so first.

To format

  1. turn phone off.
  2. hold the following keys WHILE its turning back on: (3 + * + green call key)
  3. do not let go until it asks you about your location
After you've formatted your phone memory, all viruses will be gone, and it'll be functioning a lot smoother than before.

Next, you've got to scan your memory for viruses by hooking it up to a computer, and then use that computer's anti-virus (has to be updated) to eliminate all those pesky viruses.

Then you could also run a "scan disk" using the computer's "scan disk" feature to make fix any errors on the memory card. You could also choose to defrag the mem card if you like, just to make it respond faster.

As for the loose memory card slot, you're going to have to bring it to a technician to have it fixed. Shouldn't be that expensive.

Or you could put a small piece of tape on it, that is if you feel like getting primitive. :)


Let me know how it goes

N73ME firmware disconnect


Can i know whether ur phone is in warranty period or not. If its in warranty period, you can always claim for warranty cover from Nokia and get a brand new mobile for you. Because while updating itself, the warning message will get flashed like connection should not get disconnected and all. Once it gets disconnected, your phone will be dead and you cannot use it anymore without servicing it. It will cost you around 500INR if its not under warranty

Pc suite not detecting N73 and mobiles gets switched off...


Dear friend,did you ever dropped your phone somewhere?This can cause frequent rebootting of the phone.Also in some cases it can happen normally.Nothing to worry.Your problem can be solved by Re-installing your phones software at an authorised Nokia Service Centre.Dont forget to back up your data because re-installing will erase the whole data in the phone.
Your phones detecting problem also will be solved after re-installation.If not make sure that the connection settings are properly done and the PC SUITE mode is selected during connection.

Nokia N73 security code


The default security code for Nokia is 12345
IMEI: 359568011016758
Master code: 4444376533
Close all applications on your phone.
With your phone switched ON, remove the battery.
Then remove the SIM card.
Replace the battery without the SIM card and switch your phone on.

Type in the security codes (any code) until the phone request the Master code, when it does, leave your phone still, don’t use it for 15 minutes, then type in the Master code.
This is the code needed to reset the Security code, nothing else, and it’s for your phone only.
If it does not request the Master code, your phone will have to be connected to a computer and an unlock box to restore the Security code.

Theres somthing wrong with my n73 music edition


Hi,
There is a good chance that the problem is related to the battery connectors. Try cleaning the connector points of both the phone and battery. Also. Check that the battery isn't loose or anything. If it is loose then any small sudden movement can cause the connection between the battery and phone to be lost resulting in the shutting down. If it is loose, try putting a folded piece of paper between the battery and battery cover...this should hold the battery in place. Good luck!
