    How can the internal phone storage lose 5mb in 1 day when I havnt installed any new apps or added any new contacts etc?

    All I have done in the last 24 hours is send a few texts and browse the internet on my handset, so I asumed it must be internet cache/history/cookies etc, so I deleted/cleared all these.. guess what .. still the 5mb is missing. :confused:

    Any ideas where this could have gone and how to get it back again?

    Cheers

    You try a reboot? I have found that deleting cache tends to only be recognized in the memory usage after a reboot

    No, thanks ... I'll check it again after a reboot

    EDIT: Just done a reboot, and Ive actually gained 22mb!!! note: this was the first time ive cleared the internet history/cache/cookies since Ive had the phone (10 days)

    Nice one
