[possibly any] Your storage is full

The backup script(s) I posted are:

root at nibbly-bits:~# cat backup_messages.sh

d=$(date +%Y.%m.%d-%H%M)
mdbus -s org.freesmartphone.ogsmd /org/freesmartphone/GSM/Device 
org.freesmartphone.GSM.SIM.RetrieveMessagebook 'all' > messages-$d.txt

root at nibbly-bits:~# cat backup_contacts.sh

d=$(date +%Y.%m.%d-%H%M)
mdbus -s org.freesmartphone.ogsmd /org/freesmartphone/GSM/Device 
org.freesmartphone.GSM.SIM.RetrievePhonebook 'contacts' > contacts-$d.txt

Mind the line wrapping - the mdbus line is all on one line and ends at 
the .txt

I also had this problem for a few weeks, it was rather frustrating.  My 
FR -thought- the sim was empty and had no messages in it, but in reality 
it was chock full.  I had to pull my sim and put it in another phone 
about five times before the problem got fixed and deleting them actually 
did delete.
