It might be worth checking the "Primary Storage Setting" under Memory Manager and set it to external - it might be that the internal memory is full. Indeed - it might be that the phone only uses internal memory for it's run-time uses, so you might need to make sure that there is some free space on the internal memory, full stop.
You can always move stuff to the external drive in the media album to make space if you don't want to delete things - beware though: If you're replacing the background picture on your main screen - this must live on the internal memory.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

hi, if you go to phone settings>memory manager>handset common memory you will probably find it is full or nearly full, most of that being used by 'others'. You won't be able to edit photo's, use them as wallpaper, send or recieve mms or e-mails and probably other stuff too while your memory is full.
You can try to 'clear all' here and see if that works, but if not as with my two, try going to browser settings and pressing reset settings. it took ages on mine and i thought it had frozen but when it eventually finished I had 69% free on both phones and everything worked fine again.
Make sure you are using a memory cad too and that the primary storage is set to external....just in case!
maybe the case is that the default place for saving files on the device is set to the external card. if this is the case, which caused me similer problems on my renoir, try to set the default place for saving files on the Handset memory instead of on the external card. (the memory issue is not spacwise but cpuwise) to do that u need: Menu> Setttings> Phone settings> Memory manager> Primary storage setting> Handset memory
hi, i had this problem with two renoirs (i got so annoyed with the first one but liked the phone so i bought another!)
I tried everything to clear the common memory but nothing worked, until last night when I accidentally hit reset settings, in browser settings. It took ages and I thought it had frozen, but when it finished I had 69% memory free! I had to re-save my bookmarks but that was no big deal.
I tried it on the old phone and that worked too so might be worth a try....
To close all open applications: press the white hard key (in the middle of the red and green), and you customisable menu appears. At the top of the screen is a grey tab with a dark grey triangle (like a play button), press this and you see all (if any phone application are open), press the end all button on the screen. Then to confirm action pres yes to stop all tasks.
The go to your desire image, (on you memory card or on the phone memory), open image. Then press the menu button at the top left of the screen (looks like a square with three lines in it). Menu will open and then choose 'Use As'. A sub menu appears and choose 'Main Screen Theme'. Hopefully you should get your image on as wallpaper, but it may take a few seconds to react.
