I have just acquired a: Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro

I keep getting a "messages are full"; warning me that I can't receive any more SMS until I've made room.

I don't have many apps, photos or files loaded on the phone.

I have 2 SIM cards installed, however, it seems the phone tries to store my SMS messages onto my primary SIM card.

How can I get the phone to store SMS messages locally (64 GB memory)?

I’ve looked under Messages → Settings, there’s no option to change the storage location for messages.

Many thanks.

Tap on the Portable storage card and once opened hit the three-dot menu at the upper-right corner. Here, choose Storage settings, which will open the SD card menu. Select the Format as internal option to start the process.when finished reboot.

I have two SIMS installed, therefore no room for an SD card. I have a 64GB memory, so I don't need an SD card.

I have the same phone. Never had this problem, I have an Sd card and have loads of space both on internal storage and the Sd card. My phone in storage settings it clearly says" if no sd card is detected, your data will be saved to your device's internal storage automatically." I used the default messaging app in the beginning and now I use Qksms+. I can not find any particular setting in both apps referring to the storage location. I think the fastest option at this point is a trip to the shop where you got the phone. It would be interesting to know what caused the problem when they find the solution.I tried to Google this but could not find anything specific referring to this problem.
