Nokia 5800 Phone Memory Full
Couple days ago, I’ve got this error messege from my friend’s Nokia 5800 phone. It say “Phone memory (C:) Full”, so then you can’t simply save or do something with your phone memory. When I check my phone memory status, it’s on remaining 84 KB!! :D (if your SMS setting are set to phone memory then can’t receive any SMS any more :D ) Okey, after surf n search…I found that, many 5800 user are also experiencing the same thing, maybe it’s the 5800 bug (I don’t know) but here I give you some solution of this problem. I decide to write this post using English, hope can share the solution for more people :) here we go..
Here the some easy step to reclaim your phone memory :
- Check your phone memory status, see how many free space remaining.
- Delete any known large attachments from Messaging and/or Nokia Messaging. Also delete any bluetooth attachment via SMS.
- Delete any direct downloads you’ve done.
- Remove any trial or unused applications you’ve installed to Internal/phone memory.
- Download Y-Browser, then Install to your phone (install to your memory stick if your phone memory couldn’t).
- Open Y-Browser, browse to C:\system\cache\ . Delete any file in this folder, you can simply use ‘Mark All’ then Delete (on my problem, I got more than 7000 file!)
- Still at Y-Browser, then browse to C:\system\temp\ . Delete any file in this folder too.
- Okey, then go to step 1, see how many free space remaining now. If all the step done, you’ll have more free space now :D
Here the more extreme step to reclaim your phone memory :
After you’ve doing all the easy step up there, there are few more step, but more extreme hehehehe :D you’ll hard reset you phone memory back to factory setting, all your non standard phone memory installed application will remove.
- Backup all your non standard phone memory installed application if possible, so after hard reset you can install it again.
- Go into File Manager. You’ll find this in the ‘Applications’ folder. Note the current free disk space on ‘C’ (often labelled ‘Phone memory’).
- Double-tap on ‘Backup’ and check that ‘Backup contents’ is set to ‘All’.
- Use ‘Options | Back up now’ to do a backup (to card). You can say ‘Yes’ to the prompt about overwriting a previous backup, if applicable.
- When finished (the backup takes a couple of minutes to run), go to the dial pad (on the home screen) and tap out *#7370# the ‘hard reset’ sequence for S60 phones. Effectively, this completely wipes the C disk and forces the Operating System to start its system folders from scratch. Your phone will restart as part of this sequence and note that the startup will take a bit longer than usual.
- Once restarted, go back to File Manager, to check free space on disk C again (about 88MB, but this will vary according to the exact 5800 variant you own).
- Tap on ‘Backup’ again, but then tap on ‘Options | Restore’.
- Check all the content boxes and then tap on ‘OK’. Wait while your data, settings and applications are restored from the backup.
- Restart the Phone.
- Go back into ‘File Mgr’ and you should see that you now have significantly more free disk space on ‘C’.
Here is the end of the sharing, there are 2 solution. But in my opinion for the some simplify reason, you can just use easy step to reclaim your free memory, everytime you need. Have a nice day!
