    help! not getting SMS text messages

    Advertisement



    i text message a ton and never have problems, but today friends have been text messaging me and i haven't received one. i have asked more than one friend to try and write me a message but i am still not geting anything. so frustrating. any ideas? i AM receiving emails however.

    also, oddly enough, my call log history was erased and now when i call someone it isn't being saved in the call log (which usually has a record of about 20 or so).

    help!

    thanks so much in advance.

    Check your free memory space. Sounds like you may be close to capacity and have to delete/purge some things.

    I would also do a battery pull if you haven't done one in a while, it should free up some space for you.

    2 types of memory on the pearl. Basically there is internal and externam (the device and the memory card).

    Go options-status to see ur free memory on the pearl itself.

    i keep learning new things! thanks for enlightening me....i am surprised there wouldn't be some sort of notification if the device itself is running out of "ram" so to speak...

    Was the memory the reason why you weren't receiving any sms?

    not sure but i just did a cold boot and now i am receiving text messages. a weird thing however is that there is a little D above the check that indicates i've sent a message successfully. Anyone know what the little D stands for?

    I think it means that the device that you are sending the message to has downloaded the message and that basically means that they received the message.

    Hope this helped,

    I dont think it has to do with the memory, maybe the media card is not from the company BB recommends. i am on my 2 replacement phone because i keep on havin the same problem. I even went to the Cingular store, rebooted the software, and got a new sim card. lets hope the 3rd phone works.

    calls and text messages keep erasing

    Hey Moofdawg I have the same issues going on with my phone. thats why I became a member to this service. It makes me sick not receive text and have your phone logs erased.

    You can turn on your Mass Storage Mode and then drag and drop from your phone's memory to your new card.
