    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!!

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.

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.

Cannot send out text messages.


hi there,
call the customer service of your service provider ( AT&T,Vodafone,Verizon etc)....they will set up message center number on your phone , the one that you have might be incorrect...your mobile operator will send you sim updates that will refresh the settings ....and then you will get the text message options
cheers

I recieve text messages fine but cannot send out. I type in and hit send but they do not go anywhere but do not get error message. Also I have a few blank text messages that won't delete


Friend, there is something wrong in your network.contact your network provider to solve the line problem. If the message cannot be deleted then there is something happened in your memory due to line failure thats why it cannot delete. try to free up your memory.

Nokia n81 8gb cant send txts


If you can't send text messages the SMS settings of the service provider may not be saved on your phone.You should define a message centre on your phone for sending and receiving text messages.Contact your network service provider and they can send it to you..

Problem with sending a text message


hello alexann, Your phone is out of ram memory. Symbian phones use the internal memory as rom memory (dinamically allocated) ram memory (for user programs) and firmware storage. If the internal memory is almost full the phone will begin to give you such errors because it can't load into ram the text aplication that is require to start in order to process sms messages. Please try to avoid to fill the internal memory and instead move anything from it to the memory card. A full internal memory can result in slow phone operation, errors, program crashes or even the failure to boot-up (start) the phone. Therefore, in your case you should try to free more internal memory (phone memory) and check the sms folder to see if you can send messages. If this doesn't solve, you may have a virus or a bad program installation that corrupted symbian OS's registry. This will require to hard reset the phone. Please come back with a reply if these methods fail. Good luck!
