Re: SIM SMS memory full??

Check the memory you have available in total:

 

Options > Memory

 

The values you are looking for should be at the bottom, and let us know how much!

Re: SIM SMS memory full??

Do this:

 

Go to Options > SMS Text and look for the option that says "Leave SMS on SIM Card" and set it to "No".

 

Your SIM card has a limit of 20 messages, and changing this option will move them to device memory instead. Hope this helps!

Re: SIM SMS memory full??

Hi,

 

My phone has the same problem. I was tinkering around in settings and stupidly turned on 'store sms on SIM'. About a day later it told me my SIM was full and I need to delete messages.

 

I turned off the 'store sms on SIM' option. I saved all of the SIM messages onto my phone/memory card and deleted all messages off my SIM card  (SMS SIM card Inbox is now empty).

 

However, the message is still appearing! How can I get rid of it??

 

Thanks

Re: SIM SMS memory full??

Hi

The Blackberry is designed to be reset by removing the battery whilst the device is powered-on. Leave the battery out for a minute or 2.

See if that resolves the problem.

Re: SIM SMS memory full??

I'm having the same problem with my curve 9360. It has no messages on it but still it keeps saying the message and sim-memory is full. Now i can't even receive messages anymore, i've tried sending a few to myself. Also my cpu usage is 100%, of which 95% is used by the system (when I'm not even touching the phone) and then my phone is getting really warm, until the point that i reboot it, because i don't want it to explode. Blackberry support won't answer my emails, please help.
