tips for saving SMS to SIM card


Although I have set the option "Save SMS to SIM Card" to YES, it doesn't work.

Any tips as to what I am doing wrong?

Re: tips for saving SMS to SIM card

Options->SMS Text->Leave messages on SIM card = YES ---- should work.


If it does not work properly try to use the following strategies (backup your sensitive data before):


1. Wipe the device memory via: Options-Security Options-General Settings,menu: "Wipe handheld"

2. Re-install/upgrade your handheld OS. There is an utility to wipe the device and prepare it for new OS.  And there is link to RIM OS upgrade resource.
