Question Low Memory and Pictures

My LG-509 started giving me "Low phone memory" warnings last evening. I have about 80 pictures on it in Gallery. Although I've tried a bunch of times, I am unable to get Gallery to upload Picasa. I made the mistake of loading up Google+, it installs an "Instant Upload" functionality. I decided to uninstall Google+ but the uninstall left "Instant Upload" behind. Gallery's upload options point to "Instant Upload" every time which of course is probably why uploading goes to 54% on the first picture then dies because it can't find Google+ on the phone and winds up begging me to "Force Close". And, let me tell you, once pictures are in this "Instant Upload" facility, you can't get them to return to Gallery; you can't get them to delete, you can't get them to resume uploading either. You're cooked!

So, to my question: Are pictures in the phone's Gallery charged against the phone (not SD card) remaining memory space allocation? If so, then I've got to plug this in to the usb port and strip them off. I don't want to lose them. I'd really like to know how to purge that "Instant Upload" queue which currently has 72 pictures in it. But that's probably another question on another thread...

Sorry for the late reply. It seems to me that the pictures are on the SD card, not in the phone memory. But you can test that theory quite easily. Go to Settings, SD card, Unmount SD card. Wait for it to finish unmounting your card. If you can still see your pictures in the Gallery, then they aren't on the SD card! Don't forget to remount the SD card when you're done poking around.

For the low memory condition, I bet you can get a lot of good from App 2 SD (non-crippled ad supported version; ad-free version just $2). You've probably got some apps you could move to SD, but it's a PITA to do them individually in Settings -- App 2 SD makes it much easier. Also, it has a function to clear the app cache that can recover several megs.

Good luck!
