    Hello Everyone.


    I did take about 15 minutes and search if this was covered elsewhere* but was unsuccessful -- so here goes...


    Im getting the dreaded Device memory full -- delete some SMS messages pop-up on my BlackBerry Bold 9700 but the memory is not full. When checking the device memory under Options >> Memory* it shows the Application Memory at 72.3MB. This is further confirmed by checking Options >> Status* where it shows File Free at 75846160 Bytes.


    I did a battery pull anyway (I actually prefer ALT-RIGHT SHFT-DEL)* but the message instantly pops up again after the reboot finishes.


    I* of course* have the SMS messages set to NOT be stored on the sim card as well. Ive really checked all possibilities and Im starting to think that the device memory is corrupt or the phone doesnt know its *** from its elbow and is misjudging the device memory availability.


    I also only have three small applications installed. Whats up?


    Thanks for any help*

    Device Memory is NOT Application Memory* or File Free Memory.


    Device Memory is where your media is stored* and to see how much you have left go to:-


    Media > Menu > Memory Use

    I assumed that was only for pictures* video* etc.


    It is set to the maximum of 32MB and says it is 98% free. When choosing Details* it lists the 2% is consumed by Other. Is this where email* SMS and MMS are stored?


    If so* it further baffles me as I am not low on memory as the pop-up states...

    Its obvious you are not low on memory. What OS are you using? Do you actually have that many messages saved? What is the memory you have reserved for media files? And finally are you using a SD card?


    Keeping several messages that contain media files* use up the reserved media memory and you can get this error.

    Hello -- thanks for the reply.


    I am using OS 5.0.0.714 (Platform 5.1.0.146)


    I dont have any messages saved (in regards to moving them to the saved folder) and concerning messages that Ive received and not deleted* I have about 547 emails and Im unsure how to get a count on total SMS/MMS that are sitting on the device.


    Media memory is set at the maximum available choice of 32MB


    I do have a 2GB SD card installed and it is at 1.8GB free.


    Thanks again*

    Theres your problem then... far too many read emails/SMS messages hogging your memory.


    Remove all your read emails from the device* and just leave them on your server. And dump all those read SMS messages* or if you must keep them* then do a backup then delete them.

    Sounds to me like all those e-mails and SMSs have media attached and have used up the 32mb youve reserved. I keep the messages on my device to a minimum. Any I want to keep I store on my pc. Also* there was a post last week where someone had over 1*100 e-mails but couldnt get DM to back up any more than 600+ so they could update the OS. In other words* my suggestion would be to scale down the saved messages.
