Don’t fret when you turn on your phone to see the “Memory Full” message pop up on your screen. This simply means you are about to use up all of your allotted memory. There are several quick-fix methods to get the message to automatically disappear until the next time you are about to reach your maximum memory.
Things You'll Need
- External memory card (optional)
- Email inbox (optional)
Begin deleting photos, ringtones, games and other applications that you have previously saved onto your phone. This is the quickest and most cost-efficient method to open up your memory space on your mobile device. Continue deleting additional files or begin deleting text messages stored in your Inbox if you are still receiving the “memory full” message prompt.
Save photos and ringtones you receive through text messages to your phone then delete the original text messages. When you save photo and ringtone files and also keep the text messages containing the same content, it doubles your megabyte usage. This prompts the “memory full” message to keep popping up every time you turn on your phone.
Forward your photos and text messages to your email Inbox, if you continue to receive the “memory full” message. This is the best option if you use a smart phone device that syncs with an e-mail address. This will keep your megabyte usage on your mobile phone device to a minimum.
Look into purchasing a micro-chip memory card for your cell phone if you’d like to save a collection of photos. Only certain models are designed to accommodate an additional memory card; however, some older models may not have the capability for memory card installation. Check with your cell phone provider for memory cards that are compatible with your specific model.
Tips & Warnings
- If you are having trouble getting the “memory full” message to go away, despite having already deleted the majority of your cell phone saved content, visit the local branch of your cell phone provider for assistance.
