Hi Mickey_123,

Thank you for your first post and welcome to the Nokia support discussion forums.

Have a look at the following link. Its contains some helpful tips on how to free up memory to help resolve issues such as yours:

http://europe.nokia.com/support/search?qt=Nokia%20C5-00%20low%20memory&cat=support&fullcontent=true&...

Also as @phoenixzurc suggested go to message settings then look for OTHERs then change phone memory to memory card.

Also have a look at the following thread:

http://discussions.europe.nokia.com/t5/Cseries/C5-phone-memory-loss/td-p/765116

It is about other user's having similar issues to yourself.

Furthermore if after all this you are still having memory issues please try doing a soft reset by dialing *#7780# on your device. If it asks for a code the default is 12345 (unless you have changed this of course!)

Let me know if any of this helps.

Regards


Raoul_Duke

Re: Nokia C5-00 memory problem

Hai Mickey_123
First check what all extra apps you 've installed, even if u install it in memory card chances are there that its some memory files or cache files are in phone memory. Check for ur browser's files. And also download datas. Check if u 've the latest firmware installed. I suggest taking to a nearby nokia care if the problem still persists and they can do a thorough flashing of ur device.

Re: Nokia C5-00 memory problem

Re: Nokia C5-00 memory problem

Hi guys,

 

When your phone notifies you if the phone memory is getting low. To free phone memory you have the following options:

  • Move data that you want to keep to an alternative memory (mass memory or memory card, if available) or to a compatible computer.
  • Remove data you no longer need.

Use File Manager or the respective application in your phone to remove data or to move data to alternative memory as described in the user guide. Typically you first mark files to be removed or moved and then you select the corresponding option (Delete or Move to folder).

Use Nokia Suite to move data to a compatible computer.

In order to free phone memory, you could remove or move the following:

  • Messages from InboxDrafts and Sent folders in Messaging
  • Retrieved e-mail messages from the phone memory
  • Saved Web pages. Clear the web browser cache to free some phone memory (e.g. select Options > Clear privacy data Cache).
  • Saved images, videos, or sound files (in GalleryPhotosVideos or Music player)
  • Contact information (in Contacts)
  • Calendar notes (in Calendar)
  • Downloaded application packages
  • If there are applications which are not needed any more, uninstall them with Application Manager
  • Any other data that you no longer need

If you are deleting multiple items and any of the following notes are shown: Not enough memory to perform operation. Delete some data first or Memory low. Delete some data, try deleting items one by one (starting from the smallest item). After deleting data, restart (power off/on) your phone.

Also Use the memory card or mass memory instead of phone memory in the Camera or other applicable applications in case the selection is available (e.g. via Options > Settings > Memory in use).

 

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on,

 

Sergent

Re: Nokia C5-00 memory problem

Use net qin antivirus for your problem. It has all that you need. Even i am using Nokia C5-00 only and i have faced this problem before. With net qin you can delete all the memory and control all the applications properly. But to be frank its not a permenant solution. The phone will keep on generating files and it will through "Not enough memory delete some content" error. Solution do not connect your mobile to internet do not use Mail box.

Re: Nokia C5-00 memory problem

Look, the C5-00 has a bug  in that it generates log messages in logs/eng/Ods. I had 160MB to delete once I found it. This is a BUG, not the number of apps etc. NOKIA: FIX THIS PHONE.

Re: Nokia C5-00 memory problem

Here is the solution.
1.Go to web.
2.option.
3.clear privacy data
(select all).
4.clear.
you will free atleast 12mb.
If u cannot open the web due to full memory then delete some unwanted msgs or ringtone. And free about 2mb...
This will surely help u...
I just freed 26.2mb on my c5-00..
