Try this method for common N6288 bug. Remove your batteries, while charger is unplugged. Remove the SD memory card from the phone and clean it's gold/copper contacts with an eraser and then wipe it clean. Put the battery back in the phone without the memory card. It should turn back on, after it successfully turns on, put the memory card back in.

If it continually happens, the memory card is damaged, or you need a firmware upgrade for the phone, but I still think it's the memory card.

    Well some Nokia 6288 have known fault when accessing the memory card. Usually the fault happens either when theres too low battery and then recharged and it also happens after recharging.

    The device automatically reads the sd slot just before booting thats why some 6288 will work after removing the battery, then removing the memory card, putting in the battery and fully recharge once again, without the memory card. After that the system boots itself up once again,. I have several serviced 6288 with this same problem, and have found this process to solve the problem. Maybe your phone problem is different, so don't say my answer is inappropriate... I know nokia phones from front to back, we are trained for it...

Fully charge the battery, then power the phone on while it's still plugged in to the charger. Now you should be able to power the phone on and delete all those messages.
