How to install software on Nokia N73?

Hello folks,

I need helps on installing software on N73

I downloaded some software from Nokia.com. All the file extensions are .SIS. For example, a dictionary and Time Zone Upgrader.. so on.

My question: WHERE DO I STORE THE FILES? I tried to put them all in the root directory on the SD card. It didn't work.

Appreciate for any helps!!!!!

You need to perform setup procedure. You can however, have those softwares done in 2 differrent ways. First, using PC Suite by download the latest version from Nokia website then install on your PC. Then when you double click those xxxx.sis file on your PC, while your N73 connect correctly with the PC, the Nokia application installer on PC will ask you for installing application. Or you can transfer you xxxx.sis file to your memory card then goto where you put those file and use joystick to open them. Then the installer in you phone will ask you to do the rest. The way Symbian works is similar to that Windows on the PC. I hope you will get it done easily.

Re: How to install software on Nokia N73?

Hi delixis,

Thank you for your message. I still don't get it.

Here are what I did:
I did got the latest version PC Suite from Nokia web site, and installed without any problems. My phone can connect to my PC without any problems either. I can move files between the phone and my PC. I installed software on the CD that comes with the phone. It seems to me everything is installed on my PC not the phone.

Let's make it simple, you know there is a dictionary we can use on the phone. When I tried to use the dictionary, I got a message say "Dictionary is not installed, please ...." somthing like that. I know I don't have the dictionary.SIS file. Ok, I downloaded from nokia web site. I just don't know where I should put the dctionary.sis file. Should I put the file into a folder on the SD card or what?

Thanks.

Normally, if you download a sis software from Nokia web by your phone. After finishing download, the installer will work automatically and after that you can use that software. You can try uninstall that problematic SW first, then download and install it again.

Re: How to install software on Nokia N73?

the point you are missing is that the SIS file is not an application ready to run, but the installation package to install that application on your phone. It is kind of a ZIP package containing many files that are copied to your phone drive.

You have to run, execute, or whatever you want to call it the SIS package on the phone, or using the Application Installer application that comes with PC Suite.

If you already have the SIS files on your SD card then use the File Manager program on the phone to find the file and then "click" on it with the center of the joystick as delixis states above.

When you've downloaded the *.SIS file, double-click it on your PC. The Nokia 'Install applications' program should start up and install the SIS application to your phone.

Re: How to install software on Nokia N73?

Thank you very much guys. I have installed all the software I need. I jut don't understand why Nokia didn't say so. Nokia web site only mention "... for installation, please go to User Manual...". It should say "just double click the *.sis file to install".

Appreciate for all helps.

It should probably appear under Menu -> Office (that's for mine) or maybe Menu -> Applications.

If you are not really a programer of Symbian. You can find some files that might be the ones you're looking for. But you can not be sure especially for Symbian 9.x. It does not quite easy understanding as Windows.

Re: How to install software on Nokia N73?

OK.

My real question is this: I downloaded a ring tone in MP3 format. Let's say it is ringtone.mp3. Where should I put the file on the phone and I can use it as a ringtone form my phone.

Thanks

Re: How to install software on Nokia N73?

In this case I believe likely the SIS file is corrupted or the application is somehow not supported by the phone.

Are you sure dude that files were compatible with N73/OS 9.1.
In this case, you may try hard reset the phone.

You can't just put those files on phone, you have to "install" them. Have you ever used a Nokia PC Suite? It comes with program installation feature, try it or if you already put them into the phone, use joystick to excecute them.
