Phone memory is Full

Dear All,

 

I am using Nokia E 71 and all of a sudden I am getting alert like 'Phone memory is full. Delete some data from Phone memory to received SMS'. I haven't installed anything recently in Phone memory and storage of my SMS' is also memory card. All other programs are installed in memory card. I use to browse website heavily on my phone and I think it is causing memory to be filled up due to heavy flash work.

 

Any suggestion about how to get rid of this problem? How to delete temporary internet files?

Re: Phone memory is Full

I browser window goto Options->clear privacy data->clear cache.

You can also check your used memory at Menu->options->memory details->phone memory.

It will give you detail which applications are using how much of your phone memory.

I don't see any option to clear cache data. I am using built in browser of E71. My phone memory is 119 MB used. Any other suggestions?

You can clear the browser cache using Options > Clear privacy data > Clear cache .  But I believe the E71 has an "Auto Bookmarks" feature, which will also fill up your storage if left on.  Check for unneeded bookmarks and perhaps disable Auto Bookmarks.

 

Edit: you said above that you can't find this on the Nokia Browser menu.  I don't use an E71, but found this tip here: http://europe.nokia.com/support/product-support/nokia-e71/tips-and-tricks/mobile-browsing .  You should have a similar option.

 

If that doesn't work, you can delete the Cache contents manually, but will need a free 3rd-party file browser.  See the details here: /t5/Eseries-and-Communicators/E71-native-browser-doesn-t-loading/td-p/774447 .

 

If that still doesn't help, use Nokia's File Manager, select the Phone Memory, and then Options -> Details -> Memory.  Look at how storage is distributed.  Are categories like Messages or Images very large, or is the bulk of used space appearing for Other Files?

Dear Thetao,

 

Thanks a lot for your post. It really helped me. I cleared up browser cache and reclaimed 2 MB space :smileyhappy:

Re: Phone memory is Full

You're welcome...but I am concerned that 2 MB will fill up again in no time. :smileysad:  The next time you see this error, check for the other things I mentioned: an excessive number of bookmarks, and the "Memory Details" for the Phone Memory in Nokia's File Manager.

Re: Phone memory is Full

I am facing the same issue as OP. I use my e71 to browse through opera mini. Now i noticed that the phone memory is getting reduced everyday. I used a 3rd party file browser and deleted the cache. But it freed only 1mb. I need to free up space on my phone memory. Please help.

See my comments on this thread: /t5/Eseries-and-Communicators/E5-00-C-Memory-full-but-no-files/td-p/1140149 .  The poster owns an E5, but your problem is nearly the same.  Also see my comments above, about Nokia's File Manager and "Other Files".  If you can't solve the issue immediately, at least see if you can figure out roughly where the memory is going.

Re: Phone memory is Full

Try installing Xplore symbian, it gives a better more detailed view of the files on your phone and may help create some motre space ?
