Now you see why I'm finding this so annoying! If it could be solved without getting a new phone I would be quite happy because the phone is otherwise fine for my needs.
Basically the phone tells me every couple of days that the internal memory is nearly full. This means I have less than 20mb of device memory left. I can't receive any text messages until I free up some space. I then delete data for a bunch of apps until the message goes away and I have about 24mb free. A few days later I get the message again and the process repeats. It happens immediately if I try to update an app, or heaven forbid download a new app, but might also happen when I am just surfing FB or whatever.
Currently I have 57mb free which is pretty good. Then I just logged in to myfitnesspal and it has gone down to 39mb. Every time I use certain apps they just seem to dump more and more crap onto the internal memory until there isn't enough left to do anything.
These are the apps that appear in my 'downloaded' list although some are not deletable:
- Facebook 21mb
- Myfitnesspal 21mb (SD card)
- Accuweather 11mb
- Maps 11mb
- Google play store 10mb (shame I can't delete this since I can't buy new apps anyway)
- Avast anti-theft 8mb
- Avast mobile security 5mb
- Voice Search 4mb
- Strava cycling 3mb (SD card)
- Goodreads 1mb (SD card)
- Google search 1mb
- HyperQuiz 0.93mb (SD card)
- Street View 552kb
- Trainline tickets 432kb (Sd card)
I used to have quite a few more but I just kept having to delete them to save space. Might be worth mentioning that the phone froze up completely once after giving me the 'low internal memory' message and got sent away to be fixed while the warranty was still valid. They wiped everything and I only re-downloaded the minimum to avoid this happening again. It has been all downhill since then.
