Your message boxes ( received, sent,drafts must be full ). Delete the ones you dont want and try. The MB size that shows is of data card. Messages are stored in phone memory and phone allocates a fixed amount memory for messages. This memory is what is used up and hence you get the message "Not enough memory...."

Not Enough Memory to Perform Operation. Delete some Data first

I am using an N77 Phone and i have the same problem. A message "Not enough memory to perform an operation. Delete some data first." would lately invade my screen while i am trying to send a message. I don't use my phone memory, only the memory card which is 2Gig. I also haven't used even half of the memory space of my memory card... But still i deleted some files like messages in the sent, drafts and folders. I also deleted some videos but it is still the same.. Please help.

Re: Contacts deleted

Data once deleted from phone cannot be restored.

Re: Message: Not Enough Memory to Perform Operation. Delete some Data first

Hi,

 

I'm having this problem as well with my Nokia E72, the message "Memory full. Delete or move some data from C: Phone memory".

 

It is extremely annoying as it pretty much makes the phone unusable.

 

Anybody having a solution please can you post it here.

 

Thank you!

Jan

I had the same problem with E63. I manage to fix it:

Go to MESSAGING -> pres OPTIONS -> SETTINGS -> OTHER -> MEMORY IN USE -> "NAME OF YOUR MEMORY CARD"

Because now all your messages are saved onto your phone memory.

Good luck!

I did a soft reset that fixed the problem

Soft reset – Doesn’t involves deletion of user data (Contacts, SMS, etc’) . Type *#7780# from the standby screen. The Default security code is 12345.
