    Yep - mine started doing this a week ago. No notification of new messages or missed calls. And sometimes my phone doesn't ring but goes straight through to voicemail even though it's on. If I switch it off I've also noticed that it loses time on the clock... Sucks!

    i have the same problem with my cell phone. emerged out of no where. i think i dropped it once on floor after which this problem emerged but that doesn't seem likely as this is a software related issue.

    I think this is a prevalent problem, because I have exactly the same situation as described by the others - my N70 phone receives a message but wouldn't create the slightest sound nor vibration. Also when there's a call it would only vibrate but wouldn't give out any ring. This is very inconvenient because you would think the people you are expecting to reply haven't replied yet where in fact there are tons of messages left unread in your Inbox. Plus when you have an important call you have absolutely no idea because it does not create any sound! My phone has not experienced any trauma as to render it impaired or "slightly defective" for that matter.

    I own a Nokia N70, which I've had for two years now, on the AT&T network. I started to experience problems with my phone two weeks ago. I was not receiving notifications for Text Messages, Missed Calls, or Voice Messages on the first/home screen of my N70. To see if I had received a Text, I would go into Messages, and click Inbox. If a Voice Message was left by a Missed Caller that I wasn't aware of, I would receive a Text from "Square, Letter D, Square, Square" stating "Voice Message Waiting".

    I do show that I have over 2400 text message, so that could be the problem, as I've read in other posts. I'm going to delete all texts, and see if it works, without having to format my phone.

    I am currently residing in Japan and I am now having the same problem with my Nokia 706i (Docomo phone). The problem started yesterday when I missed a call and the "new voice mai"l symbol appeared.
    After checking and erasing the voicemail, the symbol remained displayed on my phone.
    After that is when I noticed that I was not getting new email notifications anymore.
    I took the phone to the Docomo shop and do not have a clue on how to fix the problem.
    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, ive got a silver n95 that will not send txts, it recieves txts and all otha funtions work ok

Sounds like you need a new Sim Card, you can get them anywhere for free either by popping into your nearest O2 shop or ordering them online. Once you get this, ring 202, this is the customer service hotline you need to ring to activate your new sim, you can also request to keep your old number here. You may have to wait 24 hours for your new sim to fully activate, but when it does you should be able to send messages again.
Hope this helped!

first change your message settings storage location to memory card . if it does not allow you still , once remove memory card and type *#7370# and press yes and enter lock code (by default code will be 12345) then your phone will be formatted . So now it becomes faster and solves your complaint.

Nokia e50 wont notify me when i recieve a new text message

Hello there! thanks for using!

Try the following instructions, to personalize your Nokia E50!
Warning: In the offline profile you cannot make or receive any calls, or use other features that require network
coverage. Calls still may be possible to the official emergency number programmed into your device. To make calls,
you must first activate the phone function by changing profiles. If the device has been locked, enter the lock code.

Select Menu > Tools > Profiles.
You can adjust and customize the ringing tones, alert tones, and other device tones for different events, environments, or caller
To customize a profile, scroll to the desired profile in the list, and select Options > Personalise.
Define the following settings:
Ringing tone — Select a ringing tone from the list, or select Tone downloads to open a bookmark folder containing a list of
bookmarks for downloading tones using the browser. To listen to the selected tone, select Play. If you have two alternate
phone lines in use, you can specify a ringing tone for each line.
Say caller's name — Activate the text-to-speech ringing tone feature. When someone from your contacts list calls you, the
device sounds a ringing tone that is a combination of the spoken name of the contact and the selected ringing tone.
Ringing type — Select how you want the ringing tone to alert.
Ringing volume — Select the volume level of the ringing tone.
Message alert tone — Select a tone for received text messages.
