    Text message memory full

    Got the Droid 4 days ago. I keep getting the alert "Text message memory full" . I only had about 10 txt messages. So I deleted all of my txt messages and I am still getting the alert along with "Low on space - Phone storage space is getting low"

    Between the 4 different senders/threads I have open in my messaging app currently, I've got 500+ texts on the phone (cut off is set at 200 per sender and then set to auto delete oldest). I've never seen a message like this either. Let me fiddle around with my phone a bit to see if I can find anything for ya.

    Just for comparison, what are your memory levels at? (menu > settings > SD card and phone storage)

    SeanM21 have you reset your phone since you have received it? (turn on/off) You may want to do that and see if that helps. I don't have my Droid right by me right now it's upstairs charging, I know there is a limit to how many messages you can set it to hold but not as few as what you have.


    If you have reset maybe you should try pulling the battery for at least 30 seconds, long enough to let the capacitors discharge and then see what happens.

    My max is set to 500 and I have several, several threads at that limit. I actually set it to 2000 and ran with that for a while and never got any issues.

    I do think your 16MB left is a little low. I have 27.27MB on my internal phone storage and have had it since early November (a few days after launch).

    Granted, 16MB is still 16MB and you shouldn't be receiving warnings, but I do not know what the cutoff is for when they start sending warnings on space. Perhaps it is 15MB and you dip below that at times? What apps have you installed?

    Do you have the setting Delete Old Messages/Text Message Limit enabled in the Messaging Settings? That is turned ON by default.

    EDIT: Didn't see before that you only have 16MB left on internal storage, that does seem quite low.

    You may want to open your web browser and clear the cache, cookies, form data, and location access.
    Also maybe some of your apps have cache you can clear like a file mangers thumb nails.
    This could clear a lot of the memory and get rid of the warning.
