The N97 mini only has 8gb of mass storage by default. Either you only have 8 or you have keyed in the word 'mini' by mistake. Anyway, the previous post was correct in saying that you could always choose the Mass Memory as the default storage for your messages (including anything sent via bluetooth). Go to Messaging>Options>Settings>Other>Memory in use.
For much larger files, you might want to connect your N97 to your PC via USB cable instead and it doesn't matter if it runs on Windows or Mac OS. Just choose 'Mass Storage' as the USB connection mode. Read the phone's user manual for more details.
To all ya'll having problems saving to the 32GB internal memory, all you need to do is go to your message settings, set the memory there for the Mass Memory, because remember, when you receive files via bluetooth, it goes to your messages and then you save from there...
Hope this helps to those who need it..

Collin, 06 Jul 2010Is the N97 compatible with free blackberry type Instant Messanger?Collin: Is the N97 compatible with free blackberry type Instant Messanger?
Nokia has something similar to that, and you can find it in the N97. It's called Ovi Contacts. Using it to chat with friends is free via WiFi. Unless you have a data plan for your phone, you may be charged by your network if you connect through their web service.
Ninja, 06 Jul 2010Will this get threaded messaging later?Ninja: Will this get threaded messaging later?
I sure hope so. I hope it gets added in future software (or firmware) updates. Not that I would like to have it so to look like I have that 'other' phone but it is quite practical.
The closest that the N97 has gone to having threaded SMS is through an application that is available in Ovi Store. I'm not sure as to how much it costs or if you can get it for free.
And no, I don't have that application on my N97. I can do without it for now.

Anything you receive via bluetooth gets saved in the C memory by default. The video that was sent to your phone must have been big enough to consume most of that memory.
I would advise you to do a 'hard' reset to restore your N97 back to how it was when you first got it. Resetting the phone to 'factory settings' only resets the settings, but does not clear up enough C memory.
I would like to tell you how to do that, but GSMArena may delete this post if I do. Don't worry as you'll find it all over the web. But I have to warn you, it will delete everything on the C memory that was not there by default so better do a backup of those first, or find a way to save and retrieve them for when the N97 starts to work properly.
Hope this works for you.
hey everyone please help me as i have this problem with my phone. it just froze yesterday when i was saving a video which i received via bluetooth. then the error message that came was that the memory is full, delete some applications. up to now its stil not working

I updated my N97 to v22 via FOTA on July 1, when news of a new version broke out online. I'm in the UK, and I have an unbranded and SIM-free (generic) N97.
Before I did, I checked on the Nokia website (nokia.co.uk) to confirm but it still said that v21 was the most recent for my product code. I ignored that and still carried on with the update via FOTA, so now my N97 is on v22.
Well, I finally figured out my product code. The sticker under the battery lists a 12-character alpha-numeric string after the word "Code." When I enter this 12-character string, I keep getting prompted to enter a valid code. On that page, all of the examples of a code were 7-digit numbers. I then entered just the first 7 digits of the code and it finally told me the latest version for my code is 21.2.045. I guess I'll have to wait before the latest update is available to me. Bummer.

Try checking on a Nokia website for another region or country.
If that still doesn't work, then you could check through using your phone. Key in *#0000# on the numeric keypad. It will show you details about your N97 (except the 7-digit product code, which you'll find on the white sticker at the back of the phone when you remove the battery). Press on 'Options' and select 'Check for updates'. The phone will try to connect to the internet via the network your phone is on or through WiFi (you'll be able to choose how to connect). After the update system checks your phone, it will tell you if your N97 already has the most recent software (or firmware), or if a new version is available for your N97. If a new version is available, then you could update via FOTA (or Firmware Over-The-Air). Like checking for an update, the phone will again connect to the internet and you'll be able to choose how.
