You need to get the Internet/Wap settings from your service provider. You'll also need the MMS settings. Call them they will send the settings via a txt msg.
If your phone switches on it won't have anything to do with the IMEI number.

    Your phone probably works fine, You need to get the Internet/Wap and MMS settings from your service provider, FOR THE N73.

    The settings are stored on the phone, not the SIM card.

    The SIM card allows you to use a particular Service Provider IE. Vodafone, T-mobile, etc...

    If the owner of the phone lost it or had it stolen, they can have the phone blocked, using the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number. If that's the case the phone can only be unblocked by a repair shop.


    If the phone was yours from new or legally acquired, and you want to change network, the IMEI number is used for calculating the code required to unblock the phone. unblocking the phone. Type *#06# to get the IMEI number, you can also find it beneath the battery.

    I need the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number. Type this code in your phone to get it:
    *#06# you can also find it beneath the battery.
    I also need to know the network that the phone is locked on, and the country youre in. Then I will give you the codes.

Got a recycled unblocked nokia n73 phone from internet my sim card is orange the phone is set to t-mobile how do i get the internet to work? where does the memory card go? my memory card is a micro chip...

The easiest way to get the internet working is to call your provider and ask for settings for the phone. Some providers will just send a SMS with all the settings and the phone will automatically save and use the settings. N73 does not have a micro chip slot, it has a miniSD. The slot is on the bottom of the phone behind a plastic cover that can be pulled out.

How to unlocked nokia N73?

Your code's for the Vodafone network are:

You should try 7 first then 1, 2, 3...
You only get 5 goes, after that your phone needs to go to the phone clinic.

If you're on a different network let me know and I will give you the codes. I need the IMEI (I've got it) the country and network.
