Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,
May I ask:
1) The Make & Model Number of the phone system you are working with?
2) WHERE you are seeing the "messages full"?

Hi again,
OK - that looks like a partial Panasonic model number.
May I ask if you can double-check the BOTTOM of the MAIN BASE UNIT of the system, and see if you can find a FULL model number?
Typical model number look like KX-TGxxxx - where xxxx is a FOUR digit number.

Hi again,
I didn't see a response from my last note, but I wanted to send the following information before I take an afternoon break.
If the handset says "messages full" AND
- you have played ALL of your messages ON the MAIN BASE UNIT AND
- you have erased enough stored (but played) messages to you should be able to get new messages - you MAY be able to "reset" the system to restore proper operation. I have the reset procedure I use below for you.
Cordless system "reset" procedure. This is done by following the steps below.
1) Remove the batteries from ALL handsets in the system.
2) Remove the phone cord from the main base unit AND the phone jack in the wall.
3) Remove the AC power adapter plug from the main base unit AND remove the AC adapter from the power outlet.
4) WAIT 15 minutes. This allows any "stuck" conditions in the components to clear.
5) Reconnect the batteries in all handsets.
6) Reconnect the phone cord between the main base and the phone jack in the wall.
7) Reconnect the AC power adapter plug in the main base unit and then plug the AC adapter into the wall power outlet.
8) Wait 30-60 seconds for the system to reinitialize.
9) Test each handset for proper function.
10) Test each function of the main base unit (answering system, caller id, etc.).
If this does not clear the issue, you may have a failing system, and it would need to be repaired or replaced (based on age).
Please give these things a try and let me know what you find or if you have more questions.
Thanks, ***** *****
