hi i have just recently updated to the 4.1.2 update and ever since i have been having a weird issue.. when i tap on gallery to open my pictures it says "not enough space, delete unused items. blah blah" but i have an SD card with about 4 gigs free space, and about .5 gig for system storage but my USB storage says 11.25/11.25 and i dont know how to delete stuff. it worked fine before and i dont think it was full before the update because i was able to use every feature just fine

I got the same message, so when I tried connecting my phone to my pc as an external hd, it would never connect, even though I've done this countless times prior to my 4.1.2 upgrade.

Ok, here is what I learned from talking to a Samsung tech over the phone: using Kies, when you are connected and see your phone on the right side (both internal and micro Sd card), click the folder and it will open the directory in "My Computer", allowing you to delete/move/copy files.

It works for me; I hope it works for you.

Mine was doing the same thing. I needed to delete some but couldn't even get into my gallery to delete some photos. So I went a different way: Apps / My Files / Images / Camera

From here you can select and delete any unnecessary photos to at least get things working again. I have a lot of videos and still shots. If you cannot live without any of yours, I don't know what to do.

I have the same problem. I try to open the gallery and get the message saying 'Not enough space......'. There is space on the sd card and phone memory. I found a differnet picture viewer ap called quickpic which allows me to look at pictures. But I'd rather use the gallery since this is linked directly to the camera and was faster. Can someone out there help?

I know it's been awhile since anyone has posted to this thread and it looks as if no solution was given. Here's my thing. I've had the Skyrocket since 2012. In the summer that year it fell out of my pocket on a roller coast. It was probably time to bury it and move on, but I hung onto to and ended up sending it to Samsung for repair in early 2013. It ran sluggish, but I expected that. I then did the update to 4.1.2. Then 4 months later the screen spontaneously cracked in two places. One could tell it was from under the screen. Samsung replaced the screen, for a small fee of course. That was 3 months ago. One New Year's Eve I attempted to take a screen shot and it froze. I removed the battery. When it came on I attempted the screen shot again. It said it couldn't be done. Later I took a pic. When I went to the photos app, I too could not access it. I didn't have enough space. Several other things happened and still do. I ended up looking at storage. Device storage is/was 1.97gb. It's supposed to have 16gb. It still happens. I can't pull the notifications bar down. The camera fails to respond. AT&T told me a partition was installed and my phone wasn't letting me access it. Samsung made me do a factory data reset and it didn't work. They said if the reset cleared it then it was due to a third-party app, but since the reset didn't clear it they want the fix it, for a small free of course. Has anyone come up with a solution to this problem? Could it be the update?
