I have an annoying issue with telecom, my Nokia 6265 only holds 88 text messages at once, this in itself is not an issue but quite often my inbox will be full (flashing text message icon) I go through and clear out some texts but texts sent to me while the inbox was full never make it through. With vodafone you delete the texts and they start coming through after a couple of minutes.

its really annoying as you never know what you have missed or who has tried to contact you (I am a heavy texter)

Do others have this problem, or do you get the texts queued up and sent back to you?

hey buddy, there should be an option in your messaging settings, auto delete, which deletes old messages either inbox/outbox when its to full and recieving new messages.
this is an alternative solution to your fault
otherwise, get a sanyo, will hold a tonne of messages for a heavy txtr like yourself.

The message overwriting option does not work on this phone. It is a known bug. You can get updated software for it which fixes that issue but it also replaces the media player with a very horrible new version.

I was considering upgrading the firmware a while ago but heard nothing but bad things about it.. I havent tried the message overwriting option, I guess I just lock the texts I want to keep and it wont overwrite those ones is that correct?

So I guess this means telecom does just discard texts if your inbox is full? I would think it would work the same as if your phone is switched off because i know when you turn it back on all the texts strart coming through, would make more sense..

This issue revolves aroud a fault with the phone, NOT the TCNZ network.

The problem is that the phone downloads the message off the network BEFORE deciding it has no room to store it, so as far as the TCNZ network is concerned, its done its job and the message has been delivered to the phone.

The stupid phone pulls the message off the network, confirms with the netwrok that it has received it, then decides it has no room to store it, so throws it away.

This is why you stil get messages that are sent while your phone is swtiched off.

I battled with this issue on an ex-girlfriends phone for ages, the solution was, as someone else has already suggested, to buy a Sanyo, or better yet, switch to Voda and get one of those nice Motorola KRZR K1's!

Welcome to geekzone cellulargeek :)

Thanks for your reply, it sheds more light on the issue I had with my Nokia 2280 - now it makes sense to me, I guess my phone behaves like this as well, hence the 'loss' of messages. At least on the 2280 it appears that message overwriting (which I never knew existed) works fine.

The store where you purchased the phone, in fact any Telecom dealer. I understand Telecom are obliged to provide you with any firmware upgrades that are available for your phone, free of charge.

I would adivse caution when attempting to use any firmware upgrade you find on the net, one becasue there is a good chance you can stuff the phone, and two these firmware files are more than likely not Telepermit approved, and therefore not tested for compatibility with the TCNZ CDMA network.

Hate to spoil the party but want to shed some light on this

The Manufacturer will only update the phone free of charge whilst it is in it's warranty, after that 12 months there will be a charge. Your Telecom dealer will answer this for you. By the way the same applies for a Vodafone or a Telecom phone. The Manufacturer sets the warranty expectations and criteria and Telecom/Vodafone do there best to complie. Remember the fix is a Nokia thing and therefore if they say is free of charge no matter what your warranty status is then so be it, it is very rare that this occurs out side of warranty though as there is a cost to getting the phone flashed and providing the upgrade.

Good luck.

Mmmmm yea BBman could well be right, I'm only going off what a mate who works a a local TCNZ dealer told me a while back.

Caution still applies about using firmware updates off the net however!
