Nokia N73 Firmware Update Includes Major Improvements

by Darla Mack

Symbian-Guru reports that the Nokia N73 has received major improvements in its newest update.  According to the discussions on Symbian Freak's Forums, the update includes both N73 ME and IE capabilities.  That sounds awesome!! 

The new version, 4.0723.2.0.1, is for the plain (aka vanilla) N73 devices and are not available for all regions (aka product codes).

Although we don't have a definate changelog, some of the improvements include:

  1. Added FOTA (firmware over the air updates) abilities... YAY
  2. Added the Music Edition's music player, complete with an "exit" option.
  3. Support for A2DP BT profiles
  4. Snakes has been removed.... hopefully there will be a download somewhere

This is great news and hopefully I can successfully update mine and post some screenshots.  But be sure to check out Symbian-Freak for more info and screenshots.

Just tried my N73 product code and PC Suite, but no luck. Wondering if anyone else has found another way to force a firmware upgrade? Did it work?

I have recently upgraded my Nokia N73 to the latest version4.0727.2.2.1

The UI has become much faster

But I am facing a problem
Whenver I am dialling/receiving calls, a cursor is blinking beside the number. I don't know why. Is it software problem?

Please send me mail.




i have nokia n73, but can i update its firmware to n73 music edition? Really need answer...


I too had updated my NokiaN73 Me. to the newer version. The changes I noticed was terrible. The services folder was now changed as Internet the music button in the key pad displays radio on a strong press and music in a soft press so many changes had been noticed. Others please share their views


Just updated to Ver 4.0727.2.2.1. Bluetooth A2DP (I have motorola HT820 BT H/phones) can be confirmed.
