    GO to manage applications and within each app you have the option to "clear cache".

    I didn't want to root my phone but I find the best way to free up a reasonable amount of space is to "uninstall updates" on those preinstalled apps that cannot be moved onto the sd card e.g maps and gmail. For all they don't seem that big, I can usually free up about 20mb that way. Trouble is they reinstall automatically every so often - so if anyone can tell me how to stop that? I keep thinking I have then it happens again. And I suppose if you use maps then its not necessarily the best solution!

    Uncheck update automatically in play store, goto my apps, select the app and uncheck the option.
    The only app you cannot stop from updating itself is the play store. But that can also be stopped if you have root.

    There are many cache cleaning apps in the market, you can use those. Cache won't get you much space, apps don't have much cache to make much difference.

    I haven't checked the actual figure but I suspect the internal memory is no more than 1 GB if not less. I read somewhere it's 158 MB

    The Galaxy Ace memory size is 158 MB which is pitifully low.
    This should not be confused with SD card size.
    Most apps cannot be moved to SD and even those that can still leave a portion of their data in the phones memory.

    Memory full messages are a common issue on the Galaxy Ace and the subject of many posts on this and other forums.

    Samsung Galaxy Ace Internal Memory Problems - I, like so many others, found that after 2 months I had Internal memory running low messages. I have very few applications other than those originally provided, I had cleared all the cache, messages, history etc. but still my internal memory was down to 16 MB. Then I noticed that when you go to Settings - Applications - Memory Usage that right at the top my Email (NOT G-Mail) registered at an extremely large Data - 75 MB!!! I had no locked or saved messages, so it became obvious it was hanging onto previous unwanted data.
    I deleted it and voila I had 90 MB of Internal Memory back. WARNING: You have to reset up your e-mail account so take a note of your account settings before you delete. I don't really use G-Mail but suspect that a similar thing may occur with that because ALL the Google Apps - Playstore, Books etc. all take bits of memory you could well do without them doing!! Hope that this might help somebody somewhere OR if someone knows how to stop it happening in the first place - TELL US!

    Google Play Books won't stop auto-installing on my daughter's phone and taking up precious memory. I don't want this app on my phone. Any idea how to stop it installing?

    I already have manual updates set, and all my other apps allow me to manually install/update them.

    Try uninstalling the play books app from the play store itself

    Thanks. Also going to try removing the book that was purchased. Maybe that's triging the app download in order to support the book?

    If the book requires the use of app then it could be, i have never bought any book so i don't exactly know that.
    If the book is in the sd card in a common pdf or .docx format then it shouldn't have any need of the app.
