Nokia N97 - SIM memory full and what to do

Published by Mike Browne July 03, 2009

As with any new phone, the Nokia N97 is very much a work in progress and while most of the known bugs have been fixed courtesy of the recent Nokia N97 firmware v11.0.021 update, there seems to be a slight problem with the SIM card’s memory reading as full. It’s the same problem that bugged the Nokia 5800 SIM and has the same fix. Find out what to do when your SIM memory is full…

The recent Nokia N97 firmware v11.0.021 update fixed many of the known bugs with the stability of the device but there is a problem with new devices that first appeared on the Nokia 5800. The problem with the Nokia N97 consists of a small flashing envelope in the top right-hand corner. This problem has been brought to our attention by a number of users but there is a very simple workaround.

This flaw shows up as a small flashing envelope in the corner of the screen. Typically, this should mean the SIM memory is full but in some cases, empty slots are not being recognised.

It’s a very simple process to free this up. First go to into Messaging on your Nokia 5800, select Options and then SIM Messages. At this stage you need to delete all the SIM messages. This will stop the envelope from flashing and will also correct the error.

We’d like to thank NokNok user MoxyNZ for bringing this to our attention – good call fella!
