Memory Low, Delete Unwanted Content and Messages, What gets deleted if you select "Erase Now" ?

I keep receiving annoying, beeping  messages , Memory Low, Delete Unwanted Content and Messages.

Options are "Erase Now" or "Erase Later".   Phone is LG Accolade 5600 on prepaid plan.

What exactly will be permanently deleted if I select "Erase Now"?

I have tried to delete a number of text messages in last day or so, but they are still there.    In the past, deleted messages usually disappeared after turning off phone for a while.

I still have text messages, voice messages and photos that are important to save, so I do not want to take any chances of deleting these.

Is there at least a way of turning of the beeping when I receive these Low Memory messages?

Thank you

It's really odd that you are unable to make space, j.johnson. When trying to delete messages, are you following the steps as listed in this link: http://vz.to/1tdukHA How much memory does your phone show as available? You can check the memory here: http://vz.to/1tduLBP

This does not answer the question. What gets deleted if you select "Erase Now"? Thank you

Voice mail is stored on Verizon's server, not on your phone.  If you LOCK the pix and messages you want to keep, then hitting ERASE NOW will delete the ones that are not locked.  As I recommended in another post, use bitpim.org to grab the data you want and save it to your computer; then even if the locked pics and messages get erased, you have them saved elsewhere.

If Bitpim doesn't have your specific phone (5600), try using 5500 or 5400, similar phones to yours, and it may work just as well.
