Nokia N73 Startup


Distinguished Member
Just got a N73 through the post today and for some reason it takes 30 seconds to startup after I turn it on.

Is this normal ?

At the current time it only has a sim card in it with no memory card.

try to upgrade the firmware/software via the cable and nokia website.

Also configure your phone to store pics/vids onto an external memory card. the more space you free up on your phones internal memory, the faster the phone should start up.

Memory in use 4281
Free Memory 40MB

I have put anything on the phone itself including contacts til I get a memory card.

Nokia N73 (34.01)

hhmmm it says I have the latest version of the firmware.

Anyone else have an N73 ? Could you time the startup of the phone.


Distinguished Member
Sounds like its normal mine takes 32 secs.

But i dont usually turn off so no problem :)

that sucks.

Anyway I got another problem.

I created a Music and a Tones folder in the audio folder of the memory card but its showing everything in one page.

So I have to identify what songs I have and what ones are the tones when I scroll down ???
