This is common on the Nokia N79. Your Sim card probably has text messages saved on it and the flashing icon is showing your sim sms memory is full. In the inbox go to the setting and view the sms on the sim, delete them and the message icon should stop flashing.

On your nokia N79 go to messaging aont press anything at this point you need to pree the options button which is located on the left.
This should open another menu then select sim messages if you have any they will be revealed here.
To delete press mark all then delete.
then press red and the flashing envelope will dissapear !!!!

Flashing envelope on screen


Try to delete a couple of messages from your inbox, the reason for that blinking envelope is your inbox's memory is full...therefore you have to delete some of the messages.

N79:d screen constantly changes colour n vibrates


The colour changing and dare i say it...vibration is the connection between the phone and the back. as you may know the n79 has chip in the back cover to tell the phone which colour to make the screen to match. Mine did this for months and months and then I changed the back and everything has been fine since then! Well apart from the fact that it crashes twice a day when i turn the keypad lock off and somehow i've smashed the lcd screen, but other than that all good!

I have the nokia 5800 xpressmusic which i have just got. in the top right hand corner there is a envelope flashing, when you click on it its says simcard memory full, i have all ready cleared the numbers...


If you've just put your SIM card in your Nokia 5800, you may have noticed a flashing envelope icon at the top of the screen.
This icon indicates that the SIM card's own text message storage is full. This doesn't actually cause problems on the 5800 because it stores its messages in the phone's own memory, but the envelope can look a bit annoying.
To get rid of the flashing envelope:

1. On the standby screen press the white menu button.

2. Select "Messaging"

3. Select "Options"

4. Select "SIM Messages"

5. Delete some or all of the messages from the SIM messages folder using the Options menu.

This should make the flashing envelope go away. You only have to do this once because when the SIM card is emptied it won't fill any more, as the 5800 does not store messages on SIM cards.

Flashing envelope icon


Yet another essential detail: It might happen that your Nokia E52 is unable to read old messages from your sim card. At least this happened to me, when putting my old card (used in some 6-7 years old nokia phone) to a new E52. No message was visible but they were there!!! The solution: Put the card into your old nokia (switch it perhaps to the card memory) and then delete the old messages (below some number - you must try the amount- or all of them). Then the things work.

It is in fact an unpleasant incompatibility and Nokia should mend it!
