Go to the desktop of the phone and hold down the Menu button until the little programs task bar drops down from the top of the screen, go into each running program and close it until nothing is running except for Phone. If you have Bigpond on your phone it doesn't close in a normal way, you have to open Bigpond, go into Settings, and select Close Bigpond from there.

Try sending something now with all the programs shut down and see if that works.

Your phone memory is almost full or at the same virus infected files are there.So, to do it by yourself the only way is to format the phone so type *#7370# after baking up your important files.Good luck

While sending text message it says memory full delete some data?


This is because when you send the message it stores up in outbox and then only it wil be sent,As your phone memory is full no space is there for storing in the outbox. So please delete the inbox and draft and savedmessages so that you will not get this message again.
