Question about Nokia 3230

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?

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.

When I try to open a message my phone says maximum limit of applications reached. And I am unable4 to open the message?

some application is open and wasn't able to close it properly,close all unused application.

you might have to many message stored on your inbox,outbox etc. try to delete some so you might get into it.

also delete other stuff if you think you don;t need it anymore to save free space in memory and run smoothly.

if the above solution doesn't work,reset your phone by going to settings > master reset and everything wioll be in default settings,if ask for the code,just enter 0000 or enter your desire code if you change it before. Be sure to back up all of your data before proceeding,cause everything will be erased.

good luck.

Every time i try to send text or anything this appears" maximum limit of applications reached" I have deleted all photo's and videos and it tells me I am only using 5% space. how do i fix...

May be it means you have reached the maximum limit of the characters in a message. For that you need to go to your message options and change the settings to maximum limit for text messages.

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.
Good luck!! EJ Kudelka

Storing text messages

This is because the Razr stores texts and emails dynamically according to message size and physical memory available. To balance it out, you would have to delete some outbox messages to store more inbox messages and vice versa. The amount of pictures, ringtones, incoming/outgoing calls, emails, texts, and videos all are drawn off the physical memory of the Razr. The device does not have dedicated application memory so everything is taken off the small amount of memory you are given. Newer Razr's such as the V3m for Sprint offer Memory Cards to supplement additional memory. Your device is equipped with a microSD card slot and you can save your music, pictures, and videos to the card and leave the additional phone memory to texts and application memory. You may not be able to save that much more if you move the pictures and music, but you can save more than if you didnt have a memory card. When reaching the maximum limit of memory the phone will tell you that you need to delete some files before continuing to do anything on the phone.
