When first turned on, select "messages." then down arrow to inbox or outbox. Select choice. For outbox, down arrow to SENT. Select. Hit the center button. scroll down twice to delete the one message. Scroll down once more to delete ALL messages from the sent outbox. Confirm and out they go!

Now, does anybody know how to email text messages so they can be saved?

Will not send text, phone is telling me memory full


Most feature phones have a very limited amount of memory on them, usually between 100-250 text messages are allowed. This means you will have to go through and delete some of your messages in your inbox. You can delete unwanted messages one by one or delete the entire inbox. The delete buttons exist in different places depending on your cell phone model.

Iam connected to a computer with the same line going to my telephone so every time I get a message it says my mailbox is full just like it does when I am the computer when someone calls.


You are getting a message saying "mailbox is full" when you receive a message, right? What kind of message is that? Is it a text or an email message?

If that's an email message, you may need to delete all of the sent items and see if you will get the same problem. If it's a text message, delete the copy of sent text messages.

Usually, sent items does not look like it's eating up your storage, but the truth is, it's causing your mailbox to get full.

Thank you and good luck!

How do you delete an unwanted number from the address book? I delete it but it doesn't go away.


This is a manufactures defect take it to the place you purchused it from and ask for consumer report and see how many others have been rerported having the same issue. If more than 5 at the purticular store, replace it with a different model.

I need to delet my messages fron my phone and i cant it is a nextel i850


Text messages? The voice mails are on a server, not the device. If you cannot delete the text messages try resetting defaults by doing the following:
Press Menu key and scroll to settings (toolbox icon) hit OK button
Scroll down to advanced; hit OK button
Scroll down to "Reset Defaults" and hit ok
Select "Reset Settings" and hit ok
VERY IMPORTANT: DO NOT SELECT RESET ALL- THIS WILL DELETE ALL YOUR DATA INCLUDING YOUR CONTACTS
After selecting Reset Defaults enter security code 000000 and select ok then select yes

You will not lose any data or info stored on the phone. This will simply reset your settings to factory defaults so you will have to reset your wallpaper, ringtones etc...

I deleted a contact from my address book, but their name and phone number still appears in my recent text messaging contact list when I send a new text message. Can you please tell me how to delete their...


It will probably stay until a different contact takes it's place. You can also try adding their name again exactly as it was. After that, edit from your list of contacts by changing the contact name and number to that of directory assistance or other contact.

Text messaging with an i730


With this problem, you should be able to Delete the SENT msgs by either going to the sent menu, and choosing OPTIONS, and delete all, if the option is not there, you may need to delete them under the Settings on the phone, for the SENT ADDRESS, you should be able to simply chose either back/delete any of those options should work well. Please let me know how it goes
Thanks

Deleting the recent log


thank u so much for trying to help. I guess my message wasnt clear enough though. The phone is not storing my "messages", I'm not having a problem with that, I can clear them, no problem. Its the "recent log" under the "add recipients" that does not clear. The "recent log" stores all the numbers you ever text messaged to. I want to clear the #'s that I've text messaged to, not regular calls, thats easy to clear. For some reason this phone stores all the #'s that you text to. If you can figure it out, i'll give u a million dollars!!! just joking of course.
thank u!
