Your phone needs to be reprogrammed, only a repair shop can do this for you.

You need to download the latest Nokia PC Suite to do an update on your phone.
Before updating software you should check that there’s a newer version of software available.

WARNING
When updating software on Mobs, be sure to:
HAVE A FULLY CHARGED BATTERY INSERTED;
PUT IT ON GENERAL PROFILE;
TURN OFF YOUR PIN NUMBER;
CONNECT YOUR CHARGER TO YOUR MOB AND SWITCH IT ON;
DO NOT ----- DO NOT ---- TOUCH YOUR PHONE WHILE THE UPDATE IS GOING ON;
THIS CAN TAKE 30 MINUTES OR MORE.
And obviously don’t unplug the phone from the PC.
Be patient, you may have to do a restart or two on your mob afterwards. Even remove the battery to get it going again (not recommended). But give it plenty of time.
It is also wise not to use your PC while updating software, just in case the PC freezes.
If the PC freezes during an update, you’re up the creek without a paddle...

I did an update on a Sony Eric 810i it took nearly two hours.
More... Your phone turns itself on and off, sometimes more than once while updating software, you should leave it well alone during the update.

How to flash nokia N73


you can flash your N73 by using the normal data cable also but your cell must be in working condition for that ...

if your cell is in working condition then you do that by following these below given steps :

1. make a back up of all your data in cell and remove memory card ..

2. download the "nokia software updater " from the nokia website. below is the website given for you:

http://www.nokia.co.in/A4767968

3.install that and keep connected to internet it will automatically download and flashes and installs the new firmware for your cell .

remember dont disconnect or switch off the pc or remove battery while the process is going this may severely damage your cell and it may become unrepairable ....

if your phone is not working presently means then you can buy a DKU series cable which allows you to flash the phone,reset any codes,etc ...

if you dont like to buy then you can just visit some service center and get the cell flashed ... as you are also from india it may cost you some just 200 or 300 rs that s it ...


thank you
