Hi everyone, 

I'm having a huge amount of trouble with my nokia E71. This notification keeps popping up saying "phone memory full, cannot perform operation" (or something like that). Therefore i cannot send or receive texts because my phone memory is full. I have also used this phone for emailing and i have deleted all emails from it so i am very confused. 

Now the phone has just froze and won't move from the frozen screen. How do i resolve this issue or clear my phone memory? Please help! Thanks so much.

Have you thought about deleting some of the SMS?

I'm guessing you've never upgraded the phone firmware? If so, that's the first step. Memory management was horrible in the earlier v100.x firmware, but was much improved in the V300 and V400 firmware. V500 is the latest.

Yes i have deleted all messages on the phone in the inbox and outbox and also deleted all emails. I now cannot receive emails or send any txts. 

How do i upgrade the firmware? I am a bit of a rookie at this technology business but i find all of you very helpful.
