Out of memory on the Nokia E71?
Recently, my phone has been complaining that it is out of memory, and hence disables automatic retreival of email amongst other things. Try as I might, I just couldn’t free up any extra space – I install programs to the memory card and keep all of my files on there. I couldn’t see anything on the phone I could delete.
However, all it seems all messages (Text and Email) are stored on the phone’s main memory, for someone who has a lot of emails and never deletes text this amounts to a surprising amount of data.
Thankfully, it’s possible to move the messages from the phone on to the memory card. Simply go Menu > Communication > Messaging > Options > Settings > Other and set “Memory in use” to Memory Card. You’ll then be asked if you want to copy over the messages, select Yes and your messages will be copied to your memory card and all future messages will be stored there. Doing this freed up a whopping 55MB of space on the phone memory!
