    Nokia 5800 message icon keeps flashing !

    One I cant fathom out !

    All messages are read and not many stored, sim has also space left for messages and contacts ! (I think)

    the messages are not stored on the sim,but on the phone memory a flashing message symbol
    normally shows you have another message waiting but theres no space for it to go. try deleting one or two and see if it clears it

    I had exactualy the same problem as you i updated my phone and it was fine.:thumbsup:

    I have plenty messages seored on my SIM ;-) from my last handsets, that go with me from phone to phone, happy birthdays etc, but it's not that, I have deleted some more....

    You can press on the tiny message icon btw, all I get is Sim memory full ;-)

    But it's not, because I deleted a few messages from it and 4 spaces left for contacts etc

    I'll delete some more, which I did not want to do....

    Thanks

    I forget how I did mine but you can go to Sim services or something and copy all messages from SIM card to the phone memory. Then why don't you just copy them onto your computer using Nokia PC Suite?

    Who you with? it's 901 for O2

    Having done a google the first site to pop up is this
    discussions.nokia.co.uk/dis…869

    which explains that it just means you have messages on the SIM card :roll:

    Thanks guys, I was fed up searching.... I deleted another 4 form the SIM and left on about a dozen and the icon has dissapeared, was bugging me lol....

    For anyone else etc....

    This indicates that the SMS storage is full (probably the SIM card SMS storage). Go to:
    Menu > Messaging > Options > SIM Messages
    and delete a few more messages.

    @ alan04 So now you know some messages do go to your SIM lol

    Thanks again
