You will have to restore the factory settings of Your phone to be able to stop this problem. Since deleting all the messages did not solve the problem. First of all, be sure that the message you are trying to receive is not a multimedia message, like pictures, music/songs and videos, because those files require a larger space to be able to receive such messages.
To restore The factory settings of Your phone,
Properly charge Your phone,
Go to the menu,
Select the settings,
In the settings, scroll to restore factory settings,
It sometimes prompts You for the phones security code,
Enter the security code of the phone,
A page will come on showing a loading page, once it has completed its loading,
The phone will be restored to the way it was when You first bought the phone.

You can recover the password. The best way is to download a file manager to your phone. I use Best Fileman for my N70, from http://www.smartphoneware.com/ It’s for series 60and 40. The trial version should be enough. In the file manager (when installed on your phone) you’ll find under- C:\System\mmcstore -the file you’re looking for, you have to rename the file- mmcstore.txt -then send it to another mobile (best way) or your PC via luetooth or USB, open it on the other phone and your password will be revealed. Rename that file- mmcstore.txt -to just- mmcstore -there might be another file named- mmcstore.txt -to view your password rename one or the other- mmcstore1.txt -one is for your phone PIN number the other your MMC card. If you reset (format) your phone you will lose all the data stored on it. Resetting sometimes gives negative results. You can reset it through your menu, if you can switch the phone on of course. Using the reset code is not recommended,So keep this as the last choice. Try this: Take your SIM card out. Make sure your phone battery is fully charged. Press* 3 sendat the same time and turn the phone on. Keep them pressed until the reset screen appears. Give it time to reset. Switch it on..Thank you!!..
The only solution for 6300 is go to phone shop or nokia repair centre. Then ask for your phone to be flashed, you may need proof of purchase. Your phone will be fully cleared- back up your things first.
