    I had an HTC Incredible which was pretty good, until I stopped receiving text messages one day and it kept giving me messages saying that the phone was low on storage space (even though it really wasn't). I went to the Verizon store and decided to try getting a new phone as I was due to receive an upgrade. I got a new LG lucid instead. Now the LG lucid is giving me the same errors! I have no movies, no pics,and only 215 pictures. I took it to the Verizon store again and they were as puzzled as I was. They suggested a Factory Reset on the New LG Lucid but I am not sure if that is the real issue.

    Could this be Malware? I have lookout and Verizon Mobile Security and both said that the phone is free and clear...

    Thanks

    Well It will depend on what all you have installed. Are you using the stock messenger app or after market? And do you get or do you have a lot of messages on your phone? Delete all but the most important ones as that can cause you to run out of room (some phones reserve a certain amount of space for messages and when full you get errors). I have a Lucid and have never gotten this message but then I keep the messages I receive to a minimum and delete those I don't need. Also if you don't have one get a SD Card as the pictures you take will save to that instead of internal memory. Hope it helps

    So update - Thanks for the help BTW - I do appreaciate it.

    The issue continues on my phone. I have deleted the number of messages and I still get the same issue. I have moved the largest applications to my SD card, but to no avail..

    My greatest concern is that maybe the side effect of some sort of malware? I used to to have the same error message pop up on my old HTC incredible. This helped to prompt me to get a new phone. Now the same low disk errors that were on that old phone continue on this phone. As I mentioned the local Verizon store is stumped and they suggest doing a hard reset and going from there...

    I scan with both lookout and Verizon Mobile Security but no malware is detected. I can get the message to go away if I delete all temp. files and messages, remove the battery for a bit, and then put it back. However the error message will happen again in a few days...
