How to remove the flashing envelope on your home screen – NOKIA E-Series?


A friend of mine came to me last week and asked me to help her remove the flashing message icon (small envelope) on her Nokia E72. 
I asked her why a small thing like that would bother her? But it also flashes some light around the big navigation button and that bothered her at night.

This message icon (small envelope) flashes on your phone home screen for one reason;
Because you SIM card messages are full.

You phone is cable of storing messages on the SIM card and also on its memory (SD card or the in-built memory).

Usually only 15 messages (maximum) can be stored on the SIM card, and when these messages fill up, that message icon will start flashing on you home screen.

Solution:

1.       Copy your SIM card messages to the memory card or the phone’s in-built memory.
Menu >> Messaging >> Options >> SIM messages >> Options >> Mark/Unmark >> Mark – select all the messages you wish to move.
Options >> Copy >> copy to Inbox (or any other folder that resides on your phone memory).

2.       Delete your SIM card messages.
Menu >> Messaging >> Options >> SIM messages >> Options >> Mark/Unmark >> Mark all
Options >> Delete – and delete them from you SIM card.

This should take care of the flashing message icon.
Have fun :-)
