Question about Nokia 5230 Cell Phone

1 Answer

I have a Nokia 5230. Error message is: Low phone memory: delete or move data from C file. I need instructions on moving/deleting data from phone memory file C??? Also, why has this occurred now? Never seen it before, I've had the phone a year. How can I streamline info to be stored on memory card instead of phone.

    Thanks for the start. In phone memory details I found:

    31 kB Documents

    7091 kB MIDP apps

    3733 kB SIS applications

    71 MB Other files

    Can you tell me what these sections mean?... so that I will know if I need to delete them and then how do I find them in my phone so that I may delete them.

You can get an overview of memory usage by going to Menu>Tools>File manager;Then go into phone memory and select Options>Details to see a breakdown of where the memory is being used;

Highlight an individual file then select Options>Organise>Move to folder, you then select mass memory and choose the destination folder.

You can also move several files at once by using the Marking feature under Options>Marking/Unmark.

    MIDP apps->MIDP is the Java runtime environment for today's most popular compact
    mobile information devices, such as cell phones and mainstream PDAs.
    Remove items from other documents.
    Doing the Hard reset "*#7370#" should clean all additional files along
    side your personal data and then the device should be just as it was
    when you first got it.
    if you have received MMS messages or Bluetooth messages, save
    their content to memory card then delete the original messages
    Then check if you have any images, sound files, video files etc. in
    phone memory that can be moved to memory card. Also check in the
    settings for things like the camera and voice recorder to make sure that
    they are saving to memory card and not phone memory.
    Have you installed any additional applications? If so, they could be
    occupying space - try uninstalling them from the app manager then
    reinstallign some to memory card.
    so if the above tips don't free up enough space, you might have to
    backup your data using Ovi Suite then reformat the phone using the code

Memory low. Delete or move some data from C: Phone memory?

Good day. Never use phone memory as alternative storage for any files, coz this is the reason why some phone cannot stand on its perfect condition, naturally this will end up hang or get freeze. Always use your extra memory inserted to your phone. Thanks

One month back i bought nokia time and again this message is appearing on screen that your phone memory is full.move the items from it. i have checked everything but not able to find how to empty...

the data that you receive by bluetooth gets stored in the phone memory...change that setting to memory card...or there may be number of messages in your msg folder...or just simply apply restore factory settings on the settings option and your phone will function properly

Insufficient phone memory


This because you might have stored up all files in phone memory,due to this there no furthur space available for new files. so the mobile says as insuffcient memory.

To delete the content in the phone memory,please open the gallery now you can accesss to the folders in it and you can delete the files or move to memory card from phone memory.

to acess memory
Press 'menu'----->gallery-----> you can find folders like images,video clips,Music files etc,.

please open each folder to delete the content in it or you can move these files to memory card.

to transfer to memory card:- the file you need to transfer to memory card,
2.Go to options(left navigation key) move memory card

Now the files are transferred to Memory card

I have just brought Nokia 5230 2 days back. I found that on the right hand corner of the handset near the battery a envelope blinking, on clicking which i get a message Sim memory full. I have transferred...


This flashing envelope icon is telling you that your text message storage is full.

1. Go to Messages
2. Select Options
3. Then select SIM messages
4. Select and delete all SIM messages.

This should do it.

All the best!

Memory low delete some date

Memory low : delete some data This is the error message that appears in my N73 mobile once in few days. There will be no space for new messages and no messages can be sent at this time. But the good news this error text will not be present in the mobile for more than a day and the next day every thing is all right. Its just like a viral fever i think, comes and goes with no treatment required for recovery. Here are some tips which can help you to come out of "Memory low delete some data" virus in your mobile phone especially nokia
-i think this is the best one
the reason for this is lifeblog, u can find that the file lifeblog.db will be the file that has increased its file size and causes this error, just go to lifeblog-settings-item types-and uncheck all the files here, after some time the memory will be normal
-delete some files in your phone memory so that you keep receiving the new messages(your phone memory will be very less at that time)
-try to close all the applications by pressing menu button for some time
-switch off the mobile and take the battery out and then insert it back and switch on
-after you regain the memory in your phone put some files in it like a song or other files so that you can delete in the emergency times
-be patient this situation comes because of some error in memory console of your mobile and it will be solved without our interference
-Dont get panic and step into Nokia Care for firmware update this will never help the cause
-Dont try to get any new anti virus as this will never solve
