Downloaded a ringtone for LG 420g. The mp3 file plays but says it's to big to use as a ringtone. Some files included w/phone are larger and work. File size 469.0KB

it could be a problem of not enough phone memory if the phone takes a memory card then move all photos etc onto the memory card if it doesnt you may have to delete some files to make the song you want as a ringtone go to the phone settings and then to memory settings to see how much memory is taken up on your phone it may be as simple as deleteing one or two files

To delete text messages you go into your indox under "messages", highlight the message you would like to delete, press the menu key and select delete.
Your "memory low" message keeps coming up because your memory not only holds your messages but EVERYTHING else as, games, ringtones, etc. Try getting rid of things you don't need to gain more space. You might want to look into getting a SD card if your phone is capable. Hope this helps you. :)

Message memory full

hi what the phone is saying is its capable of holding 500 message but in reality this means if you have enough free memory your phone can store 500 messages so what you need to do is delete all the sent/outbox/inbox/drafts message delete all the ones you dont need.
Also delete any pictures you dont need as these take up loads of mem also delete any ringtones that your never going to use as alot of the messages you got free with the phone you never use so make sure you delete any of these that your sure you dont want as these also take up loads of memory once you have done this you should find your phone will work just fine

Lg envy music download says no available space

Go to Menu, then under the "Settings & Tools" section, choose option 8 (Memory). Choose option 2 (Phone Memory), then option 1 (Phone Memory Usage). This will tell you the available MB on your phone.

Or, go to Memory, choose option 3 (Card Memory), then Card Memory Usage.

If you have 0MB left on both, then you will need to delete some ringtones, wallpaper, music, etc. to clear up some space.

If you still have room, you will have to take the phone to a Verizon store. More than likely if this is the case, the phone has a glitch in the downloading. You may of downloaded a virus while downloading music/ringtones/wallpaper.

In SE Z550i there is no option to move text messages from phone memory to external memory card. The phone comes with 20MBs of onboard memory which is shared by phone's functionalities such as calnder, to do lists, phonebook/contacts, messaging, installed games and applications, etc. The problem that you've mentioned above can occur when you store/install other files such .mp3, photos, games and applications, etc. on your phone's memory instead of the external memory stick. Please check if there are any mp3s, photos, etc. stored on your phone memory and move them to the memory card. In future, try to keep the phone memory as free as possible from mp3s, photos, etc. and please do not install too much of games and applications in the phone memory, instead install them on the external memory. If you have already installed many games and applications in your phone please check if they are installed on your phone memory and if they are please move them to the memory card.
Have a great day!

It's possible memory is being used by other applications on the phone.

First make sure to turn on and off your phone. If you're still having memory issues, delete files on the phone that you don't need or want anymore (like photos, videos, music files, ringtones, etc.)

If you don't want to delete any files, you can also purchase a microSD card, insert it into your phone, and then use it to store more files on your phone.

If deleting a few files doesn't let you keep more messages, it's possible there is something wrong with your phone and you should go to your carrier's store to exchange it or have them fix it.

Low Memory for N72

hi, do you have an extra mem card in the phone if you have then move some data to this as the phone dont use the memory on card unless you put stuff their yourself, so the phone will say mem full even if memory card is empty so try this first.
1. delete any messages in inbox/outbox/sent messages as these will take up mem
2. delete any old phone numbers/pictures/screen savers that you dont use.
3. the best way to free up loads of memory is by deleting all of the free ringtones you got with the phone most of the free ones you will never use so i deleted all of these and just kept the ringtones i used most people never use the free ones you get when buying the phone so doing this will free up loads of room. Also delete any ringtones you have put on their that you never use as the music ringtones can use loads of mem alot more than the standard tones.
4. every time you send a message your phone stores them in sent messages so delete all of these.
Once you have done all of this you will find you have loads of free memory.
The best thing to do if you have a memory card in your phone is move all the music/music ringtones that you want to keep onto the card doing this means you can still use the ringtones and free up loads of the phones memory.
The phone dont take the mem card into acount when its telling you mem full ok so put as much on mem card as you can ok.
Let me know how you get on and also if you need further assistance ok

Download Error

The w375 has a tiny memory (500kb) so I expect you do not have enough memory to store the ringtone file.

Free up as much space as you can (ie delete photos, stored web pages etc) and try again.
