    I appreciate the response. However, I am not subscribed to my service provider's voicemail. The answerer is on my telephone.

    Thank you for trying to help. I spoke with the manufacturer and was told that there is an internal problem with the phone and I will have to buy a new one.

When the unit's memory is full, it answers after 10 rings
and announces, “Memory is full. No messages will be recorded.”
A 20-second waiting period follows, allowing you to
enter your security code.

The unit answers on the 10th ring when it is turned off or the memory is full. To access the answering system, enter the 3-digit security code after the beep. If memory is full, play messages and erase some of them to restore memory.

memory is full, a new call automatically replaces the
oldest call in memory. NEW appears in the display for
calls received that have not been reviewed.

1. Press the STORE button. ENTER TEL. NO. is displayed.
2. Use the keypad to enter the phone number. If you want to add spaces instead of dashes in the number, it will dial correctly.
• To scroll forward or backward, use NEXT or PREVIOUS.
• To erase the current digit, press ERASE.
3. When finished, press STORE. ENTER NAME is displayed.
4. Use the keypad to store a name (up to 16 characters).
More than one letter or character is available in each
of the number keys. For example, to enter the letter
“A,” press the 2 key once. For a “B,” press the same
key twice. For a “C,” press it three times.
• To add a space, press NEXT.
• To scroll forward or backward, use NEXT or PREVIOUS.
• To erase the current digit, press ERASE.
5. When finished, press STORE. MEMORY LOCATION is displayed.
6. Press the memory location number (0-9 or A, B, C) to
store the number.


To store 1-123-555-1211 Al Smith, you would do the following:
1. Press 1; press NEXT; press 1; press 2; etc.
2. When finished, press STORE.
3. To enter the name, press 2; press NEXT; press 5 (three
times); press NEXT (two times); press 7 (four times); etc.
4. When finished, press STORE.
5. Press the memory location number (0-9 or A,B,C) to store.

To repeat again...

Doesn’t answer, or answers on 10th ring.
• Make sure the answering system is turned on.
• Memory is full, erase some messages.
• Check the AC power and phone line connections.

How to clear a full mailbox on a uniden 6.0 phone

Here is Uniden's online link:
Mid page you'll find a spot to look for the owner's manual to your phone.
In the event the book fails to offer any help or "how to" instructions to remedy your problem, and you are still unable to clear your mailbox entries, contact your cell phone provider for tech support. The problem may be on their end.

I have a problem with my whenever i click on WLAN Wizard it gives me a note saying memory full although there's enough space in the memory? What could it be? And how should I solve it? Please...

you can try the first step that called soft reset, you just need to dial *#7370# and insert the standard code for Nokia 12345. if this way can not fix your problem you can try the second step that called hard reset but please be careful because it won't save any data that stored on your phone memory such as phone number or message. follow this step to do a hard reset on your Nokia E72:
hold these buttons: caps-lock, space, and backspace together and don't remove until you press the power on, make sure that your battery is full..hope this can help you..thanks

Memory full - I have a TM506 with a 1GB M2 memory card. (and also a 4GB). I used to be able to send text messages all the time with photos, But now I keep getting a message saying "memory full" when I try...


This is because when you send a text message it gets stored in the outbox and it wil be sent.As there is no memory in the phone the message sent cannot be stored up in outbox which says memory full.

Please delete the images ,music files from the phone memory so that you can sent the text messages with photos.

Phone memory full (nokia n81 2G)

try this one *#7370#

I keep having an error come up saying Messaging: Memory full close some applications. I have also had an error saying General: Memory full close some applications. I have no applications open can you...

clear your browser cache as well

set your messages in messaging - options- settings - other to 999 and e memory.

restore factory settings *#7780# default code is 12345 that might just might help you a bit and turn off and on your phone when you do all these things see if it helps any.

“Memory Full…Close some applications and try again” is a normal
message that usually comes on Nokia N70. It showed the memory used in the phone doesn’t have space anymore. But if the message still appears although the user already closed some applications it can be theproblem.
Someone who experience in this memory full problem said, an error message of memory full like above is appears each time he’s opened the
Camera. It also happens for a few times when he’s trying to open
messages, Gallery, or other applications. And then it will force to restart the phone.
Seems like it’s a RAM problem and might there are some applications unable to close completely. If your Nokia N70 phone has gone a start
menu button you can try to hold it down. This way will show you
everything that you have open and they can be closed easily so that
you can continue to take your photos.
So if it can resolve the problem you can reset/format by pressing *#7370#

Unabel to clear phone memory

Messages can only be stored on the internal memory of the phone and not the memory card.  The memory card is only used for media.
The best way to clear out your messages is to have a data cable or a bluetooth transmitter on you computer and install nokia PC Suite from  There is a message management program that will allow you to clean up old messages stored in your cell phone.
If that isn't possible to do, the only other choice you have is to manually delete messages from you phone.

Firstly open the menu- then go to control panel- then log -open it up - optiions clear all log.

u must store your messages in memory card and not your phone memory. Deletae unwanted messages from the message menu.

Open messages- then press options then settings then "others" then "memory in use " select use memory card .

ambove this option is the no of messages that can be stored - there type in 999. Close all and come back. to your menu.

Please feel free if u have some problems
