How do I use the Sim Messages storage section in my handphone?

 

Is there any way to transfer my messages to the Sim Messages? 

 

My handphone is Nokia 5610

Re: Sim Messages

Most recent Nokia phones simply just don't allow this

 

To verify if yours is one of them. Go to your messages settings > other > memory in use > and see if sim memory appears.

 

If it does then select it as your storage location if it doesn't then your phone doesn't allow this

 

NOTE: most sim cards will allow you to store only about 20 messages. I have heard people saying they have sim cards that can store a total of around 200 but I personally haven't come across such.

Re: Sim Messages

You can read your sim messages and copy them to your phone but you can't store them there.

Re: Sim Messages

read my 1st post I said most RECENT nokia phones do not allow this. you used that sim in another phone and that's how the messages got there. the only reason the sim messages option is there on your phone is to recover messages that are already on your sim not so you can store more

Re: Sim Messages

You can use dongal  to transfer messages to the sim, some dongal support this feature (eg. reliance). But it is possible to only those messages that were received after connecting the dongle to the PC. Iit could not transfer any messages that were already received and stored in your handset.
