Default LG Shine Plus - Internal Memory Issues

Hi,

I've had my LG Shine Plus (from Telus in Canada) for two years and have one year to go on my contract so I'd really like to stick it out.

However, I've hit some kind of wall in the internal memory -- my phone will no longer send text messages, update contacts, or browse the web due to lack of memory space.

I have most of the SD card free and I recently updated the OS (Android 2.3.3) allowing me to move apps to the SD card. Unfortunately, apps like Facebook, Yahoo Mail, and Twitter have the "Move to SD Card" option greyed out.

Has anyone else encountered this? Are there any solutions? I'm a pretty basic user, so please speak slowly and use small words. Thank you so much!!

The shine plus has a very small data partition. This data partition fills up really fast, sadly... So the more apps you install, the more you have a risk of having these issues. You have to uninstall some apps from the phone which take up space (Even using app 2 SD only saves you part of the app space, as there's still a reference on the internal memory). I suggest you go through your apps and delete them if not necessary.

Otherwise, there are other solutions that require a little more expertise, for example: Link2SD from the market/Play store. This app will permit you to copy the entire app + its data over to a second partition on your SD card. This of course requires technical knowledge on how to partition SD cards. The app itself does explain it somewhat and I think we have a thread here that does also...

Good luck!
