SMS (Short Message Service) are text messages only. EMS (Enhanced Message Service) are text messages but also allow you to send mood icons (known as emoticons).
Finally, MMS (Multimedia Message Service), as the name suggests, are multimedia messages: they allow, in addition to text and emoticons, to send animated icons, images and sounds within the message.
Sometimes, you most likely need to delete some of the messages in the messaging application , in case there are too many old or irrelevant messages.
You just have to delete some of them to sort the application or when the internal storage starts. It has little space and has to delete some messages to free up some spaces.
It will be more imperative to delete messages , especially if you are the person who likes to message others against all odds.
Fortunately, you can delete messages in the messaging application effortlessly; Delete messages physically or accordingly.
How to delete SMS and MMS from memory?
I just received a notification that it is not possible to receive an SMS because “the space / memory was full”. What is it, internal space or SD and what is the best way to free it?
Also, if you have some applications installed , typically the applications are usually installed on the internal storage, unless you have specified otherwise and you are using Froyo or a later version or some other variant of Apps2SD, etc.
You can physically delete individual conversations or messages within a conversation by following these steps:
- From any home screen, tap the Applications icon.
- Press Messages.
- Tap the required messages
- Tap Delete Symbol, then select the messages within the conversation that you need to delete.
- Tap Delete and tap OK.
- Then the single chosen messages will be deleted.
Try to free up some space
- Moving or uninstalling unnecessary applications.
- Empty your browser cache and application data.
- Or move applications to the SD card.
- Not all applications have this selection.
- But many will, and you can easily move them to the SD card to free up space.
- Open the “Gallery” application and see if you can lose some photos or videos and delete them.
- Press Storage.
- Tap Free Space.
- To choose something to remove, tap the empty box on the right.
- If nothing appears, tap Review recent items.
- To delete the selected items, at the bottom, tap Release.
The main problem here is that by the time you get the alert, you have already lost an SMS. The sender doesn’t receive a failed message and you don’t know who sent it.
It is true that the phone has little memory, as the internal space is about 5MB, but it is enough to compress a small SMS somewhere. I think the SMS application is too strict.
Any alternative would be useful
- Show the warning before the limit is reached, ensuring a buffer receives more SMS while cleaning something.
- It tells you who sent the text so you can request a new shipment.
- Send sender a “message not received” error
- You could tell the network to try again.
- How does it happen when the phone is turned off?
Ideally, even if I think this might be difficult or already done, let the SMS application take up more space when you need it.
You just need a little bit for each message compared to the few MB that might be available on the phone.
