    Is there a way to clear the app Dialer Storage? Right now its at 19mb with no way to clear the data. Is it recording numbers I am dialing?

    hmmm.... easier to pass a phone audit huh? :) On the Dialer screen, hit Properties (bottom middle-left red button), then Call history, then Properties again, then Remove call history, check Select all at the top, etc. Wow I just removed 495 of them :)

    Only had 10 calls and its still reading the same. restarted the phone as well. It goes from 17mb at the lowest and 19 at the highest. So many apps and services they dont explain on HTC and Verizons sites. Have one called Scribble that I have no idea what its function is. After the jan. Verizon push and Plays conversion they showed up it seems. Thank you for the help though. Much appreciated

    All the clear data settings etc.. are grayed out so I can only force stop it. Dont want to do that until I know what its got on it. Thanks for the help. I have enough memory but every bit counts sooner or later.

    Deleting large texts should reduce the size of Dialer Storage.

    This is the correct way to reduce the Dialer Storage number.... Photo's and large amount of text and really push this number high!

    So is it safe to clear data or will I lose all my texts?

    No, clearing this deletes all text including locked and pics

    I would never had guessed nor do I get why pics would have anything to do with dialer. Is it because of the attachments sent in texts of pics? Thanks and I'll delete some pics and see if it changes. Thank you and the original quote that mentioned too. I appreciate the help

    I have an HTC desire - I clear my dialer storage (gets up around 28mb) and don't lose any texts etc.

    None of these work for mine. All the clear data settings etc.. are grayed out so I can only force stop it. Dont want to do that until I know what its got on it.
