Keeps saying "Memory full" even though all my messages are deleted

I've deleted all of my sent, inbox, and draft messages and my phone keeps saying "memory full." It wont let me send or receive text messages at all. I've tried removing the battery and putting it back in, but that still doesn't help and I keep getting the same message. Please let me know of any solutions!!! Thanks!

    It says memory full even though all memory is deleted!

  • Anonymous Mar 16, 2009

    Whenever I try to send a text, it says that my memory is full and to delete my messages. But my inbox and outbox are both empty. I even brought it back to where I bought it; he wiped the phone clean and it STILL says it. I just do not understand why it is doing this. If anyone can help, that would be great...

    Go to settings, applications, manage applications, click on an app, click on Force Stop, then click on Clear Data. You will receive a warning, proceed anyway. Repeat this for all the apps. Reboot the phone. Worked for me.

Go to settings, applications, manage applications, click on an app in the list, click on Force Stop, click on Clear Data, you will receive a warning, proceed anyway. Repeat these steps for each app, then reboot the phone. Worked for me.

Does it show signal bars on the screen and are you able to make/receive calls? If not then that is why. AT&T does not guarantee in building service. If you do have signal and it is working other than text, then check your message center number in the device:

From the standby screen, press Menu.
Press Messaging.
Scroll to and select Settings.
Scroll to and select Text Message.
Enter appropriate Message Center Number, then press Done. The message center number that should be there is +13123149810 (and the + sign does need to be in front of it)

SOURCE: nokia n95 saves messages in inbox, drafts and sent etc..

This is very easy to deal with.
Firstly Backup your phone contents.
goto menu -> settings -> general -> restore factory settings.
use code 12345
if that fails then turn your phone off and press and hold 
*, 3 and the Green call button while you power up your phone.
this is a hard reset and will format the contents of your phone memory, if problems persist after this then format you memory card too. and hard reset again.

While sending text message it says memory full delete some data?


This is because when you send the message it stores up in outbox and then only it wil be sent,As your phone memory is full no space is there for storing in the outbox. So please delete the inbox and draft and savedmessages so that you will not get this message again.

Will only hold 8 messages then says memory full delete messages

hi, this is a very common problem you need to delete any inbox/ outbox/ saved messages/ sent messages/drafts delete all the messages you can and dont need to keep.

You can also free up loads of memory by deleting all the ringtones you dont use as most people never use the ringtones you get free with the phone so delete all these that your never going to use as this will free up loads of extra memory.
You can also delete and pictures on the phone that you dont want as these also take up loads of memory but the biggest use of memory is ringtones so deleting all of these will free up loads of memory allowing you to recieve hundreds of messages.

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

Message inbox was full, now cannot access anything

You should first delete files in your phone gallery manually before you go to your inbox. Delete pictures,videos or something that you don't need in your phone memory. Restart your phone to refresh the system.
Hope this could help you alot Thanks..
