    So mt phone keeps telling me that my text message memory is full, even though I have deleted all my messages and cleared the cache. I have plenty of internal memory left and a 2 GB sd card for external storage so space is not the problem. I have restarted the phone and done a factory reset and the problem still persists. I cannot recieve text measages because of this error. Help!

    The problem even persists after a full factory reset ...wow! Bummer.

    Is the device rooted? Are you reinstalling your apps after resetting the device?

    I did root the device but it irreparably destroyed the wifi serviceband caused system instability. Even after a master reset and unrooting the wifi is still not working but the system is stable and everything else is working. Now this message memory full error has popped up. I have only recieved maybe 10 text messages since the master hard reset.

    Problem fixed. Apparently, android requires that you have a minimum of 25MB of internal storage to receive text messages. The Sharp FX Plus only 69MB of free internal storage from the factory because of all the bloatware that comes preinstalled. Even though I had run the Master Cleaner app to clean up the junk, there still remained a bunch of junk in the individual caches of some apps like Maps and Gmail. I went through and cleaned out all of the caches individually in Apps Manager and that cleared up about 20MB of space and messaging started working again.
