    Same issue. Mine's "Memory storage not ready". I've tried removing the memory card and the SIM card as well but the phone freezes once the backlight turns off. The technician on the repair shop said that it'ss a problem with the keypad's IC but he tried reheating the ic and also using a different data cable,it still have the same problem. He is asking me to format the phone but I can't do that yet since I don't have any copy of my contacts. I'm hoping that there would be another solution to this problem. Also,another thing I noticed is that the phone sometimes restart by itself and when it comes back on it would be just a white screen and then it would freeze.

Perform a hard restore by keying in on the home screen *#7370# then follow with the default security code "12345" then click yes

that code may not work for all nokia series you can also try *#7780# followed by "12345" then yes

if that doesent work take it to the nearest phone outlet

I have the same problem but I have a C3 phone (: I've been happy by the way it works until yesterday. At first, I can't open the Photos, then it'll restart. It restarted over and over again whenever I try to open the Photos. Then the last time it restarted, I've waited for the message memory to load because I was wondering why I don't receive any messages. I waited for like hours but it still says "Message Memory Storage Not Ready." I scanned my Memory Card but there's no problem with it. I connected it with PC Suite but it says "Failed to Connect" whenever I select Messaging. I decided to Restore to Factoring Settings and selected All. I reset it for 3 times already. Messaging still does not open. It still says "Message Memory Storage Not Ready". My phone memory is not full yet. In fact, it still has 45.3 MB free. I hope you can help me fix my phone. Thanks~!

Brother FAX-8070P memory shows full and does not send all pages at one time?


This message means the memory capacity of the unit has been exceeded. The amount of memory used depends on the amount or type of data on the documents being faxed or copied.
  1. If you get an "Out of Memory" message while scanning the first page of a fax, press Stop/Exit to cancel scanning.
  2. If you get an "Out of Memory" message while scanning a subsequent page, you can either press Fax Start to transmit the pages that were scanned so far or press Stop/Exit to cancel the operation.

When Fax Storage is set to On, a copy of all received faxes are stored in the memory, thus using up a % of the memory available for other functions.
The Fax Storage feature is utilized for Fax Forwarding, Fax Paging and Remote Retrieval. If you do not need these features, verify Fax Storage is set to Off by doing the following:
  1. Press the Menu/Set key.
  2. Press the arrow key until FAX appears on the LCD. Then, press Menu/Set.
  3. Press the arrow key until REMOTE FAX OPT appears and then press Menu/Set.
  4. Pressthe arrow key until FAX STORAGE and then press Menu/Set.
  5. Check the setting. The display will read ON or OFF. If the setting is ON, press the arrow key until the display reads OFF.
  6. Press Menu/Set.
  7. If you have faxes stored in the memory, you will receive a message that reads Erase all fax? 1. Yes 2. No. If you want to erase all the faxes in the memory without printing them out, press 1 (Yes) and then press Stop/Exit.
Note
    If you would like to reprint the saved faxes, press 2 (No), press Stop/Exit and continue to the following steps for instructions on how to print stored faxes.
If you do need the features that require Fax Storage to be On, the stored faxes will need to be erased or printed to remove them from the memory and to allow additional memory to be available. Follow these steps to print the stored faxes:
  1. Press the Menu/Set key.
  2. Press the arrow key until FAX appears on the LCD and press Menu/Set.
  3. Press the arrow key until REMOTE FAX OPT appears and then press Menu/Set.
  4. Press the arrow key until PRINT FAX or PRINT DOCUMENT appears and press Menu/Set.
  5. Press Fax Start.
  6. After printing is finished, press Stop/Exit.

Memory full


1. Fax Storage may be set to On. When Fax Storage is set to On, a copy of all received faxes are stored in the memory, thus using up a % of the memory available for other functions. The Fax Storage feature is utilized for Fax Forwarding, Fax Paging and Remote Retrieval. If you do not need these features, Fax Storage should be set to Off. Verify Fax Storage is set to Off by doing the following:

a. Press FUNCTION, 8 (Remote Fax Opt), then 2 (Fax Storage).

b. Check the setting. The display will read On or Off.

c. If the setting is On, press the left or right navigation key (arrows) until the display reads Off.

d. Press SET and then STOP/EXIT.

e. If you have faxes stored in the memory, you will receive a message that reads Erase all fax 1. Yes 2. No. This means you have faxes saved in the memory. If you do not want to reprint the saved faxes, press 1 (Yes) and then STOP/EXIT. After pressing 1 (Yes), all fax data is erased and Fax Storage is turned off.

Hope this helps!
