Cannot delete messages from inbox

My inbox just reached its maximum capacity of messages. A pop up tells me that I need to delete some data. But when I try to delete my messages, another pop up says: "General: Not enough memory to perform operation. Please delete some data first." But that is what I'm trying to do! How can I delete messages if the phone won't let me?

Re: Cannot delete messages from inbox

It also happened to me and my friend's cellphone. I suspected a virus from a text message we received. You have to reformat your phone as suggested by iroarload: 1. switch phone off, probably take out the battery if the power button doesn't work. 2. hold down call (green), 3 and * all at the same time. best with right hand. 3. turn phone on. with left hand. 4. wait a bit and phone will come up with formatting. does take a bit, so be patient.

My problem is my 3230 cellphone sometimes it appear memory full closed some application.

You may want to delete the following items regularly to avoid memory getting
• Messages from the Inbox, Drafts, and Sent folders in Messaging.
• Retrieved e-mail messages from the phone memory.
• Saved browser pages.
• images and photos in images.
To delete contact information, calendar notes, call timers, call cost timers, game
scores, or any other data, go to the respective application to remove the data.
If you are deleting multiple items and another of the following notes are shown:
Not enough memory to perform operation. Delete some data first. or Memory low.
Delete some data. try deleting items one by one (starting from the smallest item).
Clearing the calendar memory - To remove more than one event at a time, go to
the Month view and select Options→Delete entry→

Deleting text messages

Should also just be able to select Menu->Folders, get on the folder you want cleared, click Menu->Delete All. If you don't have items in that folder you will see Delete All but you won't be able to select it.

Inbox messages syncing mysteriously

Turn off the conduit. It sounds like you dont want the Mail to synchronize at all. You can set the Mail or VersaMail conduit to Do Nothing permanently if you would rather not have mail synchronizing. Go to HotSync icon in your system tray and click on it. Select Custom... Make sure your username is selected and then choose the mail conduit. Set it to Do Nothing and ensure you check the box 'Set as Default'
