    Default Unable to access messages saved in the memory card

    Hello Team,

    I'm facing some serious issues with my nokia 5230.
    Issue : 3 days back I got a notification that I've received a new message however when i clicked on 'show' nothing opened up. Still the unread message was showing at the top.
    yesterday when i received a txt msg. it said that unable to access memory card. message will be stored in the phone memory. Today when i tried to open my old messages in the memory card it just wont open however if i change the memory in use to phone memory, I was able to access my old messages.
    And today when I'm trying to change the memory in use to memory card, the messages application will just close.

    -I've tried restarting my phone.
    -Wiped the memory card with a soft cloth.
    -connected my phone with pc in mass store mode and deleted a file name : 00001000 from e:\Private\1000484B\Mail2\ as advised by a website.
    - I've changed the USB connection mode to pc suite and 'ask for connection' option as No.

    I really dont know what more to do with this. I've faced the same issue last month and had to take my phone to nokia repair centre where they formatted my phone as well as my Memory card.
    Honestly I dont want to format my phone and mmc if the issue can be fixed just like that.

    Please advise where the problem lies. Is it a symbian issue or I have issues with my memory card ??

    Will really appreciate your help and assistance.

    Kind Regards,
    Sumeet Bais

    delete your phone memory sms messages then when its clean, switch memory used by sms to memory card

    i hav faced the same problem since v31 n now with v40 also..i think there is a major issue with the memory card provided with the phone..using phone memory for messaging if fine but using memory card creates this problem - unable to access text messages, unable to delete messages from sent items and inbox..formatting the memory card does not help either.

    SO MY ADVICE IS YOU USE PHONE MEMORY FOR MESSAGING..

    Perhaps performing a firmware upgrade?
