Nokia C5-03 Error: Memory full. Close some applications and try again

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I purchased this phone mainly to use for Navigation and phone, but disappointed by the error shows up every time when you are in need while using Map.

 

I do not have any extra applications running other than it came with. I have closed all the running application which running map. Phone software and Map is upto date with version (V22.0.007 and 2.45 on map) Earlier versions also same problem. Currently the available memory shows 27.2 MB)

 

I tried all the solutions given in /t5/Hardware-Codes-and-Operator/Nokia-C5-03-SIM-memory-full-but-NO-SIM-MESSAGES/m-p/1260683#M25236, but no use. Same error.

 

Is there any way out other than choosing another phone and brand?

 

Regards

Simon

Hi smsimonk

 

Welcome to Nokia discussions board! 

 

I advise you to perform a hard rest on your device. Please back up your device via Nokia Suite

Then type *#7370# on the keypad. The default lock code is 12345. 

This will normally fix the memory issue. 

In case it does not, please take your device to your nearest Nokia Care Point, or call your local Nokia Careline. Please find the addresses and phone numbers by clicking on this link

 

Let us know how you get on and feel free to post any other questions you may have. 

Regards,

The same here. One of the main reasons to buy my C5-06 was Nokia Navigation. From the very beginning it shows "memory full" messages while using Nokia Maps application. Fortunately after pressing "ok" it continues work. But message is really annoying especially while driving.

Hello,
I advise you to free some more memory of your phone and memory card by deleting unuseful files.
Either you should try to insert a memory card of more capacity.
I had overcame of that problem by just freeing my phone memory.
I hope this would be helpful, please reply.

Nobody can fix this, because the Phone has not enough memory on board. After a hard reset it will work fine. But if you install any software like nokia messaging or nokia internet radio then the phone will make you crazy. Nokia maps data should be saved on external memory. Sometimes nokia maps show low memory (nokia maps is not programmed for low memory phones).

 

!!! The C5-03 is a low budged phone with a stupid construction error: 40 MB storage, 128 MB RAM!!!

 

>>> NOKIA C6-01: 340 MB storage, 256 MB RAM

Re: Nokia C5-03 Error: Memory full. Close some applications and try again

I am completely frustrated with this phone (Nokia C5-03). I originally wanted a smartphone but didn't want to buy the brand leader like everyone else so I thought I could rely on a Nokia.  I have had this phone for less than 12 months now and I have already done a full reset TWICE and have lost all of my information.  On both occasions when the memory problems starting occurring with the phone I tried to back up my info to my PC but the phone told me that I had "not enough memory to perform operation"!!!! I am now getting memory full messages every 10 minutes and the phone will do nothing for me. 

 

There is nothing left on the phone to delete.  I had my email synched to the phone originally for about two weeks but had to get rid of it as it was slowing the phone down.  I never connect to the internet with the phone - I mean NEVER. In browsing the web for solutions I am constantly finding varied and interesting comments about clearing the cache via the web app (I cannot connect to the web on the phone now - NOT ENOUGH MEMORY TO PERFORM OPERATION) and connecting my phone to a PC and browsing the memory to find out what the "other files" are (NOT ENOUGH MEMORY TO PERFORM OPERATION) or even downloading software onto the computer, running this in the background as I connect phone to PC in order to clear the memory (NOT ENOUGH MEMORY TO PERFORM OPERATION). 

 

I reiterate that I use the phone for nothing other than SMS and calls.  I had images on the phone but they are long gone. I have done two full resets to factory default settings and I'm facing another one and I am beyond frustrated. Please dont tell me to connect to my PC (see above) dont tell me to connect to web via phone (see above).  My phone memory is showing 22MB SIS applications (which I understand I cannot get rid off) and 46MB other files (WHY????) I reiterate that I do not (and now cannot) browse the web on the phone, I don't use e-mail on the phone, all I do is sms and calls.   WHY WHY WHY is my phone not working?  Is there anything to be done with this phone or do I put it out of its misery?

Re: Nokia C5-03 Error: Memory full. Close some applications and try again

Hi, Shariq96. Are you only getting the error upon opening the app you mentioned? Have you tried restarting the device? If you have media files saved in the phone memory and you have a memory card, we suggest transferring these files to the memory card. If you will still be encountering the same issue, you may try to re-install the software of the phone using Nokia Suite. Download it onto your PC from here: http://www.nokia.com/global/support/nokia-suite/

We hope to hear from you soon.
