    i just got a low disk space notification. I don't have that much apps.

    but i haven't really deleted my text messages. I have a thread has 845 text messages. Could that be why??

    I notice that my phone is running extremely slow and my battery would die out pretty fast too.

    Help and suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Go to Settings > Sd card & Phone storage. What is the available space listed at the bottom?

    Go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications (wait for everything to load) > Menu > Sort by Size.

    More than likely you need to clear the cache on many of your apps. Click on each on of the apps and hit the Clear Cache button to free up the amount of memory listed there. You may need to do this for quite a few of the apps listed.

    After you have cleared the cache go back and look at that available space again, has it gone up?

    Is there a app that will do this for you? So you dont have to go to each app individually. Its pretty annoying :(

    Not without root. The closest thing I have found is this: Quick App Clean Cache - Android app on AppBrain

    It makes the process easier and faster, but its not automated.

    You may be saving emails to your internal storage. Clear your cache and then see if you have this option disabled. Go to your mail and/or GMail settings and look for this option.

    Sure you can. Just hold down the thread and click delete.

    But before doing this, look for an app in the market called Delet old Messages.

    It will delete messages that are over one month old, 2 weeks... whatever you set it to.
    That way you dont have to delete entire threads and you have the recent messages.

    Edit: When in the thread, hit Menu, then more...
    there you will see the option to delete thread

    do yall have an in issue with low disk space. Right now i have 35mb left.

    I really don't have a lot of apps though. I've deleted text messages. I cleared cache. What else could free up internal space.


    I wish we could save apps on our memory card. Cus i hardly use it.

    So, what's the difference of "clear data" and "clear cache"?

    Clearing cache is like deleting short term memory for the app. In the browser, for example, clearing cache deletes all the stored info from the sites you just visited (not the history itself though), like images, flash, etc. Clearing the Data will delete all the saved info you have. Using the browser as an example again, clearing the data would wipe out your bookmarks, passwords, history, cookies, etc. Pretty much everything. Before anyone decides to clear the data though, there are ways to clear cache, cookies, history, passwords, etc. from inside the browser. Menu > More > Settings

    How much internal memory do you have? Settings > SD card & phone storage > Available space
    I am sitting at 77 MB after just clearing cache. I have about 37 apps installed.

    How many apps do you have installed?

    Go to Settings > applications > menu > sort by size
    What are the sizes of the top 10 apps listed there?

    Are you using the mail app for email or gmail?

    Well, your top ten items are taking up 61 Mb of space on your phone. That combined with all the other stock stuff is probably the reason you are getting the alert.

    What are these apps? Do any of them have cache that you can clear?
