Default Phone storage is FULL. (not)

My phone is telling me that my storage is FULL. There is NO way that is possible. When I go to settings, it says I have 6.43GB free. How the hell do I fix this?

I believe there are other threads on this issue. I haven't personally have it, but others have. Search around for similar threads.

I had this issue and called VZW support who then called HTC support. Their "fix" was to have me do a hard-reset. Granted, the "storage space low" error message went away - but it doesn't actually fix the underlying issue.

Others on the forum have speculated that the error is caused by a bug in the default mail application.

When that happened to me, I switched to the Gmail app, and (knock on wood) it hasn't happened since. Not saying that's DEFINITELY it, but it seemed to be it for me... after the reset, that was the only thing I changed.

A Verizon tech walked me through a hard reset and recommended K9 email instead of HTC mail. She said Verizon sent an internal email memo discussing the known problem and the k9 app. I have gmail and k9 for my other 2 addresses. Worked for me.

Default Phone storage full and misreporting

I think I have solved on my HTC incredible, which has 8GB, says 7GB remaining, but I get Phone Storage Full errors, and I cannot download apps nor MMS and other problems

I had my Exchange email set to download all my email and calendar, and I think the storage was actually full and misreporting it had space. I set the email sync to get only 30 days, waited for a long re-sync (which effectively deleted many emails), and now all failing apps are working again and phone storage full errors gone.
