    I have quite a few apps installed onto my phone, but I moved them all to the SD card. Yet I'm still losing internal memory. I'm using NG Cleaner for clearing my cache too but it's not exactly helping much.

    Is there a way to combine the SD memory with the internal?

    Even if you move apps to SD, a part of the app will still be in the phone's internal memory. Also, other than cache, some apps store data in your internal memory and in some cases, the amount of data stored keeps increasing like with Skyfire browser.

    There is a way to make a part of your SD card memory act like internal memory. For that, your phone must be rooted. Then you must partition your memory card into two. Both the partitions should be primary. The first partition will behave like a normal SD card. The second partition will not be detected on your phone. Now, install an app called Link2SD from the market. This app can detect your second partition. The app mounts your second partition at boot and uses it like internal memory. Using this app, you can move entire apps to the second partition. This way, you can even move apps that usually cannot be moved to SD. Much more detailed instructions are given both in the download page and in the app itself.
