This past week, I started noticing this message pop up.

iPhone SMS Messages Almost Full!

“Your SMS mailbox is almost full. Please delete some messages.”

So yesterday, I finally deleted some messages and then looked up the info at Apple.

Apple says you can have a max of 1,000 SMS messages. Doesn’t seem like enough. I don’t want to delete my SMS messages. In 5 months since I got my iPhone, I used about 1,000 SMS messages. I guess Apple is afraid someone might fill up their 8GBs with text messages?

There is a large thread at Mac Rumors about this and how many people are upset. There is a hack to download your SMS messages, but I’m not going to use that. This is a bit upsetting, to say the least.

    Just found this picture on Flickr. Have you considered ? They have an iPhone app that lets you save your SMS to their servers – that way you won’t lose anything 🙂

    I never had this problem. I’ve had my iPhone for a week now and I’ve sent ove 2000 messages and it hasn’t told me it’s gotten full. probably a previous firmware limitation
