can anyone help with this? i have a samsung galaxy europa and i'm having problems with it today, on the bar at the top of the screen there is a little red box, and that means phone storage is low, so i have un-installed a few things but it's still there, also i've been getting texts coming through but the phone is rejecting them saying the messaging is full! but there are no messages in there!! what can i do??

It's a software bug in a lot of the Samsung Galaxys' (at least 3 and S).

It apparently results from being sent an SMS longer than 160 characters that the sending phone splits up in several parts and then for some reason the sending phone (bad signal etc.) has to send one of the parts twice. When the receiving Galaxy receives one part of the long message twice, it generates a "protocol error" and stops accepting any messages from that carrier, and until the software is updated the "potential" problem exists.

The problem should get fixed by putting the SIM card into another phone and then sending an SMS to yourself, this should also retrieve all of your missing SMS.

Try updating your software, this bug should have been cured in the latest update.

Swapping the sim card to get it going again is just a work-a-round, not a fix.

If all else fails, use Go SMS instead smile

ok, i've got it sorted, googled it and someone else had the same problem and it's all down to installing to many apps, they take up space and then you don't have enough for the texts to get through! now i ask myself ''why do they have the android market with all these apps to download'' as soon as i deleted some of them my texts started to come through! i'm a happy bunny now!lol
