Re: delete everything?

You can erase all contacts. Do you know if he had a security code? You will need it. If not it is either "0000" or the last for digits of the phone number. 1. Select menu -> Settings->Security 2. Enter your 4 digit code 3. Select ERASE CONTACTS 4. Select yes to all contacts. It will ask you to confirm 5. Press your left soft key with the dot in the middle. Here's link to the manual. You'll find the instructions for all the other ones you want to erase.

My zte z990g will not send text to one of my contacts but i recieve his Calls fine too he had his checked with his carrier no issues or blocks found im able to send text to everyone but him

Most cell phone companies have a online way to text. Try using it to see if your friend receives it. You could also delete the contact info for the friend and start all over after they send you a text.

My friend can't receive any more texts or pics on his LG Ally phone (Verizon). The message the phone gives him is that his text storage is full. Also...does "trash" file need to be emptied? How?

Now, what I found out, stopping me from resetting my entire frame was the text messaging requires the phone to have a certain amount of memory available (i think it is 15 mb). Once you delete your unwanted applications and reach above 15 - 20 mb available, try to send yourself a text. If you receive it then you've reached the storage available the phone requires.

Is there a way to retrive deleted text messages or call long from the motorola milestone?

When messages, contacts, photos etc are deleted from a handset or simcard, although deleted all they actually do is free the memory to be listed as useable space, and untill something else is listed over that space your old data is still retrieveable.

You can buy sim card scanners to pull off deleted data and extract to you PC, there is also a number of software available to extract deleted data text messaged etc onto your PC from phone memory.

When trying to send texts from my nokia E63 I get the repeated message Memory full close some applications then try again. Everything is closed and I have deleted everything off my phone!!

Hi there,

I realize that you stated, " I have deleted everything off my phone".

This includes both incoming and out going messages, texts, voicemail, etc? Any pix take up a bit of space too.

I'm just exploring the possibilities.

Best regards,
