Question about Samsung SGH-a737 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Phone memory is full, but nothing else can be deleted

I used the clear memory command and all it shows I have left in the phone memory is locked content.
I think it may have been because of a weather app I used for a while. I noticed as I used the app, once in a while it would ask me to delete something because phone memory was full so I would. Few days later, even though I had not actually saved anything in phone memory it would prompt me again to delete something because of phone memory being full.
So, now its to the point that I have nothing else on my phone left to delete, yet it is showing 28 out of 30 megs being used in phone memory. Is there some sort of hidden file system, or a cache that can be cleared somehow?
Thanks

Try "restarting" your phone by pulling the battery out WHILE the phone is still on. Count to 10, put the battery back in, and turn it on. If that doesn't work, try deleting photos, or making sure that your photos and text messages aren't locked, which preserves them from deletion. If all else fails, call your cell phone company from a phone other than your cell and they can access your phone directly and should be able to fix it. I know Verizon offers this service and is very handy when all else fails.

My samsung gts5360l is telling my text message memory is full and i have only two messages.The error ico. Looks like a sims card. It also is telling me my phone memory is full and they is no way i have...


Your phone can't use the mini SD card as internal memory. Your internal memory has to many apps, and to many data. You should clear up the memory, by deleting apps. Most Samsung apps you can't delete. The modern phones already have apps, exceeding 10 Gb. So if you bought a 16 Gb phone only 5 Gb is left for you to use for apps. I'm sorry, but the SD cards should be seen as an external hard disk, mot as internal memory.

My nokia 5230 says phone memory is full however nothing is being stored on my phone memory. How do i clear spae without resetting the phone to factory settings?


check first if the phone memory is indeed full, it should be under settings then phone. also check if the default memory being used is your phone, if you have a memory card change it to memory card. if your phone memory is full you just need to delete files you don't need. you don't have to reset your phone.

Nokia N73 ME phone memory shows full but not full


change the optional memory to memory card as the phone memory is filled completely.generally messaging uses the phone memory to operate.Messaging->options->settings->other and change the memory is use to memory card.that should solve the problem. This problem is certainly not with the memory card.hope this helps you out.

Error: phone memory is full, even if all files are deleted


format your phone - but you will loose everything
Otherwise go to memory details - go to applications and select options, scroll down to memory details and select phone memory. check how much u have used and what is free. Then delete accordingly - all your music files etc etc and bingo - now stop the tears

"Memory Low, Delete Some Data"


You might want to try a "Hard-Reset" To do this you turn of your phone, press and hold "Answer Call(Green)"+"3"+"*" and then turn it on. This should reset your phone completely and clear the memory. CAUTION, back up all your vital data before you do this, it clears EVERYTHING.
