Yet another essential detail: It might happen that your Nokia E52 is unable to read old messages from your sim card. At least this happened to me, when putting my old card (used in some 6-7 years old nokia phone) to a new E52. No message was visible but they were there!!! The solution: Put the card into your old nokia (switch it perhaps to the card memory) and then delete the old messages (below some number - you must try the amount- or all of them). Then the things work.

It is in fact an unpleasant incompatibility and Nokia should mend it!

The flashing envelope indicates a text message, either you have an unread text, or your text memory is full, if you have no unread text, then it may be full, go into your texts and delete all the ones you do not need to keep as all phones are different, how you do this may be different to mine, but try going into text messages and pressing the options and select delete. hope this helps

Ok, I had this problem just now and fixed it thru pretty much fluke..Check to see if Instant messenger is running in the background. Mine was and I couldnt get it to exit the program, and for whatever reason it was jamming all of my SMS...I actually realised this when i put my SIM card into another Nokia phone I had, and all of these txts came thru, but it wasnt readable because the file was *.msn file...so i figured it was the Instant Messenger getting bugged up. So I went back to my new Nokie E71 and deleted IM and now the txts seem to be working...i hope this helps!

It is probably your sim messages that need to be erased, you can do that by going to :

Menu > Messaging > Options > Sim Messages

delete all sim messages and your issue should be solved

Flashing envelope on screen


Try to delete a couple of messages from your inbox, the reason for that blinking envelope is your inbox's memory is full...therefore you have to delete some of the messages.

My home screen shows a flashing envelope icon even though my sim contacts memory is nowhere near full


This icon indicates that the SIM card's own text message storage is full. This doesn't actually cause problems on the 5800 because it stores its messages in the phone's own memory, but the envelope can look a bit annoying.
To get rid of the flashing envelope:

1. On the standby screen press the white menu button.

2. Select "Messaging"

3. Select "Options"

4. Select "SIM Messages"

5. Delete some or all of the messages from the SIM messages folder using the Options menu.

Constant flashing envelope on front screen


This is common on the Nokia N79. Your Sim card probably has text messages saved on it and the flashing icon is showing your sim sms memory is full. In the inbox go to the setting and view the sms on the sim, delete them and the message icon should stop flashing.
