    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.

    I am having same issues and I think got the solution...Switch off the phone, remove the battery, and the remove memory card. Now insert batterym swtich on your phone, and insert memory card after 20 secs and you will have no problem in accessing your messages.

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

The best and guaranteed solution for this problem is to go to the nearest service center or cp repair shop and reprogram your nokia 5200..this willerase all your files and your phone will return to its status as a newly bought one.

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~!

Can't access anything on Nokia 6300. It locked up and gives message of: (Message storage memory not ready) No Nokia place around to take it to. Please help!


The phone's memory is full, which causes the error message and lock ups. This error prevents you from freeing up memory by deleting messages.

Try the following (taken from the Nokia support forum): http://discussions.nokia.co.uk/discussions/board/message?board.id=hardware&thread.id=7775

1. Delete unused names/numbers from the address book to free up memory. (Perhaps write down the ones you want to keep for later re-entry)
2. Once a critical threshold is reached the msg inbox indicator will blink on
3. Enter inbox and DELETE as many messages as you can before phone freezes up again
4. If phone freezes or you get the error message again, restart and keep deleting from the phone book until it allows you hassle-free msg inbox access as per normal (but don't forget to continue deleting thos messages).
