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

Voicemail light flashing but no message


This can usually be fixed by calling the phone number that the voice mail indicator light is flashing on from a different phone number. Leave a voice mail message and then go into the voice mail and delete the message that you just left. The indicator light should then go out.

I have the nokia 5800 xpressmusic which i have just got. in the top right hand corner there is a envelope flashing, when you click on it its says simcard memory full, i have all ready cleared the numbers...


If you've just put your SIM card in your Nokia 5800, you may have noticed a flashing envelope icon at the top of the screen.
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.

This should make the flashing envelope go away. You only have to do this once because when the SIM card is emptied it won't fill any more, as the 5800 does not store messages on SIM cards.

CD445 voice message icon won't stop flashing


This feature is country dependent and may not
appear in some countries.
If you have subscribed to the voicemail service
from your local service provider, icon turns
on when you have a new message in your
mailbox. After you have accessed to all the new
messages, icon will turn off automatically. If
you find that the message waiting indication
cannot be turned off by the network, you can
still turn off the message waiting indication with
your phone by the following step :

In idle mode, if voice mail waiting icon is on,
long press the redial key to turn off the voice mail waiting
icon.
Once you choose to delete the message waiting
indication, all the other handsets registered to
the same base station will turn off the message
waiting indication accordingly.

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.
