Notsure Phone Storage Too Low

My phone always tells me that phone storage too low. What is the best way to prevent this from happening without having to delete apps. Is there any way to move all photos and contact info to sd card?

You should almost always store all your pictures on your SD card.
Try this app App 2 SD (move apps to SD) - Android app on AppBrain & move some of your apps to SD also.

By default, all Pictures and Video taken by the camera are stored on the SD card. I don't even think it's possible to store user files in main memory.

I believe you can move all apps to the SD card if you're rooted. Otherwise, the developer has to change the app in order to be movable to the SD card with Froyo.

You must have a lot of apps installed to hit that ceiling. How much main memory is available and how much on the SD card?

I am rooted, so how can I move my apps to the sd? This is killing me, I got like 30 mb of internal left and it wont let me install new apps because its so low and i got like 10 gb left on my sd

It doesn't seem to be an easy process, but try this:

Apps to SD card app - xda-developers

EDIT: Actually, that's an old pre-Froyo post so I'm not sure if it's wise. You can try searching the XDA web site as they are the experts.

90% of my apps were able to be moved to the SD card. I still only have about 45mb left on my internal memory. I wish HTC just gave us 4 or 8gb of internal space. (Like Droid x). It would make things so much easier.
