Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Text message memory

The inbox will only hold 20 messages ... the outbox will hold unlimited amounts? How do I fix the problem. Phone used to hold tons of messages and I delete all the time. No pictures on the phone and no music or downloads.

    How do I tell if the messages are being saved to the sim? Are you talking about the web browser? Doing a power cycle.... you mean off on ?

First, delete all messagegs in the out and in box. Clear the cashe. (Open browser, press menu key select clear cashe). Do a power cycle.
Then you'll wanna look at your settings. You could be saving your text messages to your sim, which doesn't hold a lot. Also ,if you have pictures that can cause a memory issue. If you use the web, that can cause memory issue. So, please make sure once a day your shut down your razr for about 10-20 seconds. This will give it a nice reboot and work like a dream.
What you can do is change the setting of storing all incoming messages. Its normally set on saving all messages to the SIM which doesn't hold that much memory. If you change it to store your messages to your phone, you can hold approx. 200+, after you reach the 200 msg mark, it will start sending MMS messages

Cheers!

    If your messages are being saved to the sim card, that's a setting you can in the phone. Go to messages-message settings-save messages. You'll have choices there, either don't keep outgoing messages, save to sim or phone, etc..
    Powercycle means to shut off the phone and shut it back on.

Cannot recive text messages,


check all your messaging this happens to me frequently. If your outbox has x amount and your inbox has an x amount as well as the draft folder it all adds up even tho logically it should be determined per folder. Empty the outbox first then your drafts that'll fixya right up

When I click on my text inbox of my LG KP500 mobile phone restarts itself so I cant read my text messages. I can create message and view my outbox etc, just not my inbox and i can try so many sim card


I think there's a spam message from ur friends or service provider. Whenever a spam appears, the phone behaves the same way. So, better keep ur services messages blocked.
Clear ur phone memory so that all the messages get deleted.
Njoy......:)

I have a flashing mail icon where it shows you have a text what does it mean and how can i fix it


Usually this means the text Inbox/Outbox is full, once you delete them it should go away. You can have 500 text messages total on your reserved memory. Once you reach 500 you get the flashing mail icon and it saves texts to the smartchip (which holds 30 extra texts) and you won't be able to send a normal sms message, it will make you send a mms slide. Delete your messages, and that should fix it. Hope this helps, if you have anymore questions feel free to ask :)

I have nokia N 73..I am recieving messages but unable to open as it says memory full delete some data..whereas my memory is not at full.I hardly have any data.I am unable to open my sms's .please help


Please go into inbox and delete all previous text messages. Then sent items and delete all text messages. Also in outbox, drafts. Your settings for your text messages may only be set to recieve a certain amount of texts.

You can change this by going into messages then message settings

and then other. increase the number of saved messages to 999.

If your phone is only set to save 100, you will get memory full messages once that amount has been reached.

Hope this helps and please rate

Phone only holds 15 texts before it is full


depends on the kind of phone you have, and check your Outbox, Sent Box, Drafts, Inbox, and any other folder on your phone that can hold messages.

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.

Full memory Problems!


Hey Travis,

Text Messages are stored onto your SIM card and not your phone. You would have to clean out your mail box (clean out old messages in your inbox, sent messages and outbox).

Hope this helps,

Phone Sending MMS Messages as Default


The phone allocates a certain amount of storage for messages on a whole. Even though there may still show space available for text messages, you have hit an invisible "limit" and the phone is now defaulting to MMS messages because there is "room" there. Delete a fair amount of messages and you should be able to start sending regular text's again.
