I hope you find this helpful, I work for a cell phone company called MetroPCS and I have access to the programming codes and such. You can try to perform a master reset on the phone. (note a master reset will cause you to lose all pictures and ring tones, however you will get to keep your contacts) The first thing to do is with the phone in standby mode press the menu button (left soft key) and the press the 9 key for settings followed by the 5 key for phone settings and the finally 4 for security. Next the "enter code" prompt should appear allowing you to enter the lock code, which is by default the last 4 digits of your telephone. If not that then try 1234. That screen will disappear then the security menu will appear allowing you to press 4 to do the master reset, you should then select yes with the left soft key. Hope you find that useful.

Memory phone full


hi
sometimes the ringtones from mthe card will go to the phone memory but this is not the problem.

the ring tones are small in size.

each program have to be set card memory or phone memory.

the picture or video is the biggest memory "eating"

i think this is your broblem you have to move all your picture and videos to the card from the phone and than set the phone to use the card for picture and video.

I am facing a problem where my phone memory is actually full without apparently having any data.


Hi the best way of freeing up some memory is to go through your phone and delete the following
messages inbox
messages sent
messages draft
then go and delete any pictures you dont want.
what fills the memory up fast is having loads of music or ringtones stored on the phone so to free up some memory here delete all pictures you dont need or transfer them to your pc, then go through all the ringtones you dont use like the ones you got for free with the phone, most people delete all these as they use their own music as ringtones and never the ones they got for free with the phone so deleting these will free up loads of memory.

hopefully after doing all that you should have loads of free memory

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

My nokia n72 says memory full when i have enough memory


the main reason the phone says memory full is if your text message inbox/outbox/drafts are full so try deleting all the ones you dont need.

Also another way of freeing up loads of memory would be to delete all the ringtones you dont use such as the ones you get free with the phone as you dont tend to use these so deleting them will free up loads of memory.

Also delete any pictures you dont need as this to takes up loads of memory so try deleting as much as you can as this will then free up your phone ok.

Low Memory for N72


hi, do you have an extra mem card in the phone if you have then move some data to this as the phone dont use the memory on card unless you put stuff their yourself, so the phone will say mem full even if memory card is empty so try this first.
1. delete any messages in inbox/outbox/sent messages as these will take up mem
2. delete any old phone numbers/pictures/screen savers that you dont use.
3. the best way to free up loads of memory is by deleting all of the free ringtones you got with the phone most of the free ones you will never use so i deleted all of these and just kept the ringtones i used most people never use the free ones you get when buying the phone so doing this will free up loads of room. Also delete any ringtones you have put on their that you never use as the music ringtones can use loads of mem alot more than the standard tones.
4. every time you send a message your phone stores them in sent messages so delete all of these.
Once you have done all of this you will find you have loads of free memory.
The best thing to do if you have a memory card in your phone is move all the music/music ringtones that you want to keep onto the card doing this means you can still use the ringtones and free up loads of the phones memory.
The phone dont take the mem card into acount when its telling you mem full ok so put as much on mem card as you can ok.
Let me know how you get on and also if you need further assistance ok
