Nokia E72 – Message Icon Flashing/Blinking Continuously

I got my new E-72. And from day one a message icon keen on flashing/blinking.
I got the following solution hope this will be helpful to you too.

This is basically happens because your SIM is card is old and you have some old message in your SIM card.
You need to copy these message to your new phone.

Steps to follow –
1. Go to Menu
2. Go to Messaging
3. Go to Options
4. Go to SIM Messages
5. Copy your messages to Inbox or My Folder.
6. Delete your SIM messages.

Mission Successful.

Happy SMS’ing.

    thanks very much for solution. It was quite crazy to try many things to remove icon. Nokia was unable to write down some maintenance tips for this error. They should respect people about their need.

    Thanks again.

    Hi, This was informative. But i have a related issue regarding SIM messages. When i enter SIM messages area, i dont see any messages (to read or delete) but precisely at that moment, an old picture message pops up in my normal phone message inbox. This message also pops up when i connect my E72 to my bluetooth headset.
