    Got Wildfire S, as per specifications, it has RAM: 512MB and ROM: 512 MB too.
    When I see the memory status, I see: "Internal Storage: 107MB used, 43 MB Free"
    I wonder, where did all the space went? I checked - all downloaded apps, music, pics are on SD card, cleaned caches etc. Any pointers to this? How to free up phone's internal storage?

    I was also wondering about the same. Any clarification ?

    The Wildfire S has an internal memory of 512MB. But the problem is that more than 70% of the space will be consumed by the OS itself. So, you will get only about 160MB of free space available on your phone.

    Is there ANY other way to increase the internal memory?????
    the other day i saw a video on youtube where a guy managed to increase the internal storage of some other phone of the same company by using the SD card.... please help!!
  5. The guy on youtube probably rooted the phone. find articles about HOW TO ROOT WILDFIRE S. He must have replaced the original rom with a custom one. I do not recommend you to do that. If you root the phone with a custom rom, you won't be able to upgrade your phone with an official upgrade.

    150MB for apps.
    And the rest is reserved for phone conacts,call history,messages,calendar,etc..

    Yeah... And even the RAM does not add up to be 512MB!! Cuz of the low internal memory it limits me from installing apps and games.... :mad:

    So, I need some serious help. I got an 8 gb memory chip and my HTC Wildfire Andriod won't let me move all my pictures or music or anything else to it except apps. I don't know what to do!

    U can always undo everything and get it back to stock for an update, but what's the point. Any update that is an increase in performance and better for the user will be updated by the devs making new builds. The custom roms and kernels bring out the best in our phones

    I've never heard of a phone not allowing media files to an SD card. But have you tried this for moving apps:

    I'm also having storage issues. My Wildfire S won't even allow me to open the gallery application to view photographs I've taken. I've taken the photographs, but now I can't view them? What the shit!?

    Please help me.

    I used the HTC 'unlock bootloader' downloads so I could get the phone rooted (well, actually the wife's phone ...) then installed this ROM ... [ROM]m1ndh4x8r GB2.3.5-EU||OCKernel|Stable|Apps2SD|DATA2SD|Premium Features[1/8/2012] - xda-developers ...

    I installed the optional 'Data2SD' app after 'tweaking' the SD card and now the phone tells me I have 800MB memory .... :eek: I'll have to let the wife play with it for a few days and see what it's like though. It coulod be that this makes it too slow so I'll go back to just using Apps2sd. The CPU is at 806MHz though ....

    Obviously! Moving stuff to your SD card saves the internal memory of your phone. Haven't you moved any of your apps to the SD card?

    Its actually not possible to move anything to the SD card.
    Ive had this phone a little over a month and over the last 3 days have consistently had the same issue.
    I was able to move a photo app i downloaded onto the SD card but unfortunately ive been anable to move anything else as they are all rooted to the phone.

    At present the only Apps i have are facebook and KIK, not a tremendous amount of memory required and yet i have internal memory issues. :mad:

    YES ive cleared the cache
    YES ive cleared out trash mail folders
    YES ive turned off facebook HTC Sense

    I dont know what else i can do...Ive got no images in my gallery i removed them all...i couldnt get them to the SD card.

    I need help

    So how do I do it?

    You can only move the apps which you downloaded to the SD card, and not the pre-installed apps. Install apps2sd and check whether you can move any other app that you installed into the SD card.

    Install apps2sd from the market.

    I bought new HTC Wildfire S.
    It shows internal memory of 150MB only...
    But now whenever i tried to install new application or trying to update the existing Apps, it says "Not sufficient Internal Memory."
    I also had may all apps moved to SD card...
    There are no way i can free the space in Internal Storage other than uninstalling the existing Apps..

    Please suggest What to do???

    When I go to Settings/SD & Phone storage/Make More Space, only one of the 4 Apps that I had installed showed up. I moved that one but can't move any of thee others. I expected to be able to move all that I had installed.

    Install the apps2sd app from android market and check whether those apps can be moved to the SD card.

    Thank you, but it only says it can move itself to SD, which I can do in settings anyway.
