    It may depend on the sim or the network provider u are using........or it could be the 18 messages u are having,it might be too large that consume the space for new messages. Anyway tell your phone unit so that i could helpyou further.

Isn't it the phonebook memory that can save up to 250 entries?
If it's the sim, what you have to do is transfer all important items to a different storage like phone numbers,emails,etc. Then delete all the entries in your sim and in your phone. Like a clean-up,next is insert our sim again and observe the performance of SMS memory, U better avoid downloads this time to see the problem.

The sim's SMS memory also depends on the phone you are currently using with your sim cause your phone might can't support such storage though it is a new unit.
Like for example if u'll use that sim to an old phone,the SMS memory will be limited.
U must also consider that new phones reserves less memory for messages than for the new application features. And 1 more thing,some phones has multiple inboxes up to 3 so the storage could be devided to 3 too. Check on that also.
There might be hidden files on your phone so better reset it.

    Try this trick,this might work for your phone:

    Trick to save your SMS and saving more space for your inbox.

    For those of you who don't use FAR to increase the SMS capacity, I got a good tip for you guys.
    Maybe you already know, but it might be helpfull for those who don't know yet.

    If you can't store anymore SMS's on your phone, run My Phone Explorer, upload your SMS's, select all of them by pressing CTRL+A and then right click; save as website on Memory Stick. You can then give it a name. F.e.: you can save all SMS's of one person who you care about the most and save those SMS's as a webpage! Or like I said, when you can't store anymore SMS's, save them as a webpage on your Memory Stick and then delete the SMS's in your IN Box.

    Here’s the 13 simple steps for clarification:

    1. You start My Phone Explorer (I have the latest version).
    2. You go to 'Messages' in the program.
    3. You press the 'synchronise' button.
    4. Select one file, then CTRL+A.
    5. Right mouse click.
    6. Export/Import -> Save as website on memorystick.
    7. Select a name for the .html file (f.e.: if it's your INBOX, call it 'INBOX'. If it's all the messages from your girl, calll it 'name'. )
    8. Disconnect your phone and USB.
    9. Go to File Manager on your phone.
    10. Press 5 or go to Webpages.
    11. Open Saved pages.
    12. Chose a .html file.
    13. Watch it!

    13 steps..

    By the way, if I'm not miscalculating.. Let's say this is the avarage:

    150 messages : 50kB.
    150 x 100 = 15 000 : 5MB..
    150 x 1 000 = 150 000 : 50MB.
    150 x 10 000 = 1 500 000 : 500MB.
    150 x 100 000 = 15 000 000 : 5GB.

    I have a 2GB Sony Memory Stick PRO Duo wich means I could store about.

  • Look at the signal strength your phone is receiving from your cell phone carrier or wireless service. You may have difficulty receiving instant messages or messages may be delayed if your phone is getting a weak signal. Move to a location in which you get better reception.
  • 2Go into your phone's text messaging inbox. Look for any "warning" messages that your inbox is getting full. Alternately, compare the text message capacity your phone can hold with the number you currently have stored. Delete some messages to reduce the size of your inbox, as having a full inbox can result in problems receiving instant messages.
  • 3Sign off from AIM Mobile and then sign on again with your screen name and password. This can "refresh" your status and alert your buddies that you're available for chat.
  • 4Sign off from the regular AOL services, such as the AOL email service, if you're signed on with the same screen name that you're using with AIM Mobile. Instant messages automatically go to the AOL service and not AIM Mobile if you're using the same screen name at the same time with both services.

    Hi i know my samsung star can hold up to 500 sms's but now i only have 200 on it but it keeps saying my message box is full.

    Well the sms capacity for the whole message folder (including the inbox, drafts, my folder, sent folder and mms) is 500 and not just for the inbox. Capacity for just the inbox is 200 that is why after that it show the inbox full sign. I am also a samsung star user and also not satisfied with such a small inbox capacity.

    After reciving 200 sms the full inbox icon is flashing and it is not able to recive more sms untill I delete some !!


    The capacity of receiving messages messages is not high so you have to delete previous messages before you can receive new messages.

    Ensure your messages are loading also on the SIM card in order for it to be able to receive more message.

    take care

    Message box keeps flashing in top right hand corner,only bought it yesterday

    i would suggest you try making sure your message inbox isnt full. if it isnt you might have messages saved in the internal memory of a phone. my old phone did that when it was either downloading messges.

    Cannot expand capacity, but you must delete your SENT messages. They are taking up the room and leaving you with only a small amount of space for your inbox. Check your outbox and sent msgs and delete them.
