Internal Memory Issue
Okay so I'm new to this type of phone and I'm having an issue with my Samsung Galaxy S.
I have a red SD card icon popping up in the corner with the warning
'Memory Full. Internal phone storage space is nearly full. Delete/Uninstall some applications or data and try again'
I've had the phone for less than 2 weeks. I've taken a handfull of photos, I only sync up 1 day of gmail mail, and no labels. I have downloaded only 10ish apps (i've deleted 5 or 6 since it was full to no avail).
I've looked through the manage apps section and cleared cache / data where I can.
My storage summary is as follows
1.81GB / 1.87GB
4.47MB / 127MB
Internal SD card
73.88MB / 13.23GB
External SD card
Not installed so 0/0
I can't transfer any apps to the internal SD card, it says no ;Failed to move application. Not enough memory'
So my questions -
1- if I buy an external SD card and plug it in above the battery, will my issues go away?
2 - How can I use the internal SD card to solve my memory issue?
3 - Where the heck is all this memory use coming from when I've deleted the majority of the apps and the sizes of the ones remaining only show as being a few hundred KB each?
Also one more thing in case it's important - the warning came up (I think) after I used 'layar'. Though I've removed all the cache/date from that and it hasn't helped.
And one more thing... I'm not gonna try anything that'll void my warranty to fix the issue. And I have tried pulling out the battery and leaving it for 10 minutes to see if it fixes it like I read somewhere else.
Thanks. Any help is muchly appreciated.
