Default Whats up with the memory on this phone

I've been using this phone for almost 10months now, Im pretty used to it now but there has always been an issue. It has no internal memory! One thing is to be slow but I HATE that warning it gives me everyday and when I'm locked out of all my photos and text because of no memory.

I bought a 4gb card the same day I got the phone so I wouldnt run into problems like that.. I moved all my apps over to the SD, My photos everything. But its always been the same problem. I understand with smart phones things work a lil different and all apps are running in the back ground but seriously all I do is text, pandora, and gmail how is it having such problems..

There must be something wrong I'm doing or a setting I have to change. it should just automatically use the SD card to its advantage and save everything there and use the internal memory for processing power and apps..

Jegz55, welcome aboard

Yeah, tis is the biggest downer with what otherwise is a great device. Make sure you've tried this:
Forcing Apps to install to the SD Card without root

And poke around here. There are some good threads on recovering memory. Use the forum search tool and you find lots.

hi there,

i used to have the same problem, ran out of memory FAR too quickly, as well as a generally poor performance

if you are confident enough with rooting phones, i would suggest putting a custom ROM onto it, im currently using a cyanogenmod gingerbread ROM and it has VASTLY improved the phone

I'm afraid the only way to solve the memory issue is to root the phone. Once rooted, you can use Link2SD and Titanium Backup, amongst other apps, which will liberate what seems like an enormous amount of memory when you've been struggling for so long.

I have about 60 apps installed and ~80 mb of internal memory free.
