A couple of questions for N73


Jan 27, 2007, 1:04 PM
1. when i enter a phone number, i am unable to enter the P or W. i want to be able to send pin code when checking voice messages. i can only enter number in the phone field, and NOT the P or W.

2. i created a lock code for the phone. i want it to lock it whenever i power off the phone, thus power on the phone will ask for the lock code. where do i set this?

i can't seem to find this info in the manual.

joE, there is no way that I have figured out t add a P or W but in order to lock the phone go to:
menu -> tools -> settings -> Security -> phone and sim and u can set a pin code request whenever you turn the phone on/off or if the phone is left idle for a set amount of time.

thanks for the quick reply.

i was able to figure out how to enter the P & W after a number.

i was also able to set up the Lock Pin code whenever i power on the phone.

now i have another question...

whenever i turn on the phone, i get a voice message icon saying i have new message. however, when i check, there is NONE. this happen every time.

I had a similar problem. It's amazing that SIM cards in the US don't come with a SIM lock and password built in. They do that worldwide if you buy a SIM overseas.

Hmmm. I don't really have an answer to your problem. I would put your sim card in a diff phone to decifer if the problem lies within your phone or sim/network. If it happenson a diff phone contact your nearest tmobile/cingular store and have them do further trouble shooting. If the problem lies with your phone contact nokia's tech support. Sorr about delayed response, did not check n73 forums in a while
