Hi guys
First time on here. I have a problem with my SMS messages where they are getting deleted about an hour after being opened. I have Blackberry Curve 8320. I've tried looking in settings but just can't find option. Really appreciate advice here. Sorry if this is wrong section. Mark

How much free memory do you have on your device?

Click on Options -> Status. What is the File Free?

I have 13368555 bytes free. I've lost so much important information (I know I should have saved:-()
I thought there may have been a seeting I have accidentally turned off but can't seem to find anything.

13MB seems a little low for a Curve.....I know it would be VERY low for mine as I normally have around 45+MB, but I have an 8330.

You can give this a read to help free up some memory and hopefully prevent this from happening:

EDIT: Just to confirm, your device comes with 64MB total, so 13MB free is probably ok...but if you read thru the link above and free up more space, well...more is better.

And make sure you do regular backups now ;-)
