    Yep, I have the same problem (can't send because either memory too full - it's not! or too many applications open). I've tried a number of things based on my service provider's ideas:


    1. battery out, wipe sim card with clean/dry cloth - it eventually seemed to help but then the problem reoccurred.
    2. Deleted all texts from my sent box - did not help.
    3. Checked the messaging centre number (which did not match either what the shop where i bought the phone had, or my service provider had). This did seem to help for a while then, the problem reoccurred.
    4. My service provider sent some configuration settings to me (with the help of the guy in the shop where i bought the phone). This immediately worked, but then a few days later after sending a text to the USA - problem reoccurred.
    5. Called service provider again for some configuration settings. He insisted that was not the problem and suggested I go to their store and have them look for some software updates for the N81 - that's where I'm at now, about to head to the store.


    This is completely doing my head in!!

SOURCE: Big Problem Sending & Recieving Messages

I am assuming that you purchased this as an unlocked phone?
It needs to be set up with your carrier if you already have not.
If you did a full reset, the settings for your carrier most likely were not retained through the reset.
The reason you would get this message on your phone would be if the messaging is not set up properly, it will try to use other resources on your phone not meant for messaging.

If your on T-Mobile, go to
http://tmobileuspublic.wdsglobal.com/
and follow the instructions to set up messaging and web.

If your on AT&T Wireless, go to
http://selfcare.mycingular.net:8082/scgui/
and follow the instructions to set up messaging and web.

Hope this helps,
Simon.

Cant send or recieve text messages on my mobile phone


hi, if you are having trouble sending or recieving text messages then the fisrt thing you need to do is delete all the sent and recieved messages and also drafts due to the fact that if your memory is full this will give you loads of problem sending and recieving text or mms messages so deleting these will then get your messages working again.

If how ever you still cant send or recieve text messages then the chances are that your message center number is wrong or got mest up, what you need to do is contact your service provider and ask them to send you the text message center number settings, they will then tell you the correct message center number and how to change this setting on your phone.

They wont charge for this and it will only take 2 minutes to solve your problem.

Hi ! Every time I try to send a text message, it appears Memory full! Close some applications and try again.I did erase my pics as well as those file saved in my memory card, but it still hopeless. It's 3...


Go your message setting. There is option where you'll save your message and choose save to memory card.
Delete all message in inbox and outbox folder, delete all cache in your browser and close all active applications. Try to send text message.
If the notification "Memory full" still appear you must uninstall a one or more application (not just close it but uninstall it) to make some space in your phone memory. Choose application that you don't use the most.
If the problem persist, format your phone back to factory setting.

Hope this help and if helpful RATE please.
