My Galaxy 3 (i5800) on vodafone is telling me constantly that messaging memory is full, and incoming messages are not being received or something along those lines. I deleted a few threads with about 500 messages in each. Still got the message. Rebooted, took out battery, rebooted, took out sim and battery, rebooted. Still got the same message. So I deleted all my messages, and did the same process as before.

What can I do besides resetting the whole phone? I dont want to lose all my stuff. Could the phone be faulty?

Over the last few weeks, once a day the phone says "sim car removed, reboot phone" and I click OK and it just says no service, unlike if i actually took the sim out, it would reboot right away. Only way to fix it is to take the battery and sim out, hold power for 10 seconds with them out, reinsert and start up. Should I take the phone back?

It was purchased from JB-HI-FI like 2-3 months ago. And simcard is about 1 month old. If that.

Cheers,
Sam.

Im not completely sure but you may need to delete some apps which are stored on the phone memory/Move some apps from the phone - SD Card.

Go onto the market and search for "apps2sd". Then using that move apps from the phone memory to the SD cards memory.

Seems to be clearly saying your "message memory" is full. That won't be apps.  

So what kind of message? Looks like may be txt.

What SMS apps do you use? Try deleting the txt / PXT messages in all of them....though they should be all looking in the same place. Maybe one isn't. If you touch that notification, does it take you anywhere? That may give you a clue which app is throwing up the message.

Also...how much app space is left? You should keep about 40MB free as the Internet browser uses this space for caching content and other built-in apps may use it as a scratch pad. Try wiping browser cache to see what effect this has. Maybe none. Maybe some.

I use "Backup to Gmail" to automatically backup all SMS and call logs to my gmail account. So I can wipe everything txt / pxt on the phone, but still know I have a copy I can access from the phone - even if I have to cut / paste from gmail via my browser.

I disagree. Ive had that message a couple of times on my N1. Ive either deleted some apps off the phone storage or moved some from Apps - SD. When I done this the message saying my message memory was full went away.

I deleted all my messages and all the ones in the other text apps, and when I touch the notification it takes me to the stock messaging app. I deleted this other web browser I had on there, as well as angry birds (2 editions) and some other game and then the message went away even when there was about 50mb free before that. Wish I read your post about the backup to gmail thing. Lol. Too late now I guess. I still get that sim removed message too?

Every sms you've ever received or sent is logged in your messaging system, in effect, doubling your saved message volume. Delete the sms log and see if that helps. Sure helped me.
