    Hi,

    I had installed 2 versions of Angry Birds on my phone(15MB and 20MB each). But due to lack of built-in memory, i uninstalled them and found that only about 4MB of space got freed up from the internal memory. I did a restart too, but not able to free up the 35MB of space it had taken up.
    Help please. :(

    Could be the data/cache associated with the apps is still there.

    In the SD & Phone Storage section, there's an option to make more space available. Try that.

    I think most of Angry birds sits on the SD card and so uses very little internal storage.

    Ben.

    I tried the "make more space" option, but of no use.
    When Angry Birds installed on the phone, it took 15MB of the space and i moved it to the SD card and found that only about 1.2MB had been moved to the SD card. Dont know where the rest of the files are hiding :(

    There is a great app on the Market called DiskUsage - that might help you track down the lost space.
