Some of my text messages get saved in my SIM card automatically and this does not show up in notifications and I miss out on reading them.

I only realize the messages have arrived when I get a notification saying my SIM message

inbox is full please delete messages.

Is there a way to make the phone memory the default storage for text messages?

I am using ICS 4.0.4 in Intext Ibuddy Connect

  • Normally sms's are saved in your phone. Did you try clearing your sms inbox on your SIM? – Sid Jan 17 '13 at 9:58
  • Yes I clear it everyday deleting all the messages in the list....but after a few more incoming messages it comes back to full... – Sangeet Menon Jan 17 '13 at 10:18

  • @ManishAndroid,Bishan Thanks both of you suggest me the same to use the SMS backup apps, but before using that I need to know whether I have received a SMS or not PS: Please see the EDIT, Sorry if I was not clear with the question earlier. – Sangeet Menon Jan 30 '13 at 16:43
