Its OK.. I had it for a week and sent back. If you only want a phone to text and call then this is a fine phone. Don't expect much else from it.

Small screen and Symbian make for a fairly mundane phone.

The camera is a highlight. It produces very good pictures.. better than most cell phones.

very happy!

i'm on t-mobile's "buy your own cell phone" plan in the US. my nokia E-63 (which wasn't compatible with T-mobile's USA 3G network btw) was stolen last weekend, so i was forced to upgrade.  I'm VERY happy with the E73. The faster processor is great (everything runs very snappy), the email is way better, and i can finally enjoy 3G (which is extremely fast on this phone - HSDPA 10.2 Mbit/s!). also, i'm finally using my phone as an mp3 player. the sound quality on the E-63 was totally crap, but the E73 isn't too shabby!

if you get this phone, get Free-iSMS (it's essential!). the only thing i wish it had was a larger screen with a better resolution, but at $300 + tax, you can't expect everything.

other things to note:
I don't like using touch screens, so I was looking for a qwerty
I chose it over a blackberry because of price, my familiarity with the Symbian OS...and because if you look at the specs between the comparable models, Nokia does basically everything.

Design 8/10
Features 9/10
Performance 8/10


  • Processor speed
  • Wi-Fi
  • 3G speed
  • Push Email
  • Light sensor + Dpad navigation
  • Price


  • Operating System (which I'm used to, so it's ok, i guess)
  • Screen size/resolution
  • Ovi Store apps (pathetic selection)
  • Memory (I'm getting "out of memory" messages when running Opera, the MP3 player and Nimbuzz)
