    Uninstall unused apps, clear app data and cache, delete texts.

    350X,
    MacFett gives the best advice here ^^. Not going to find much else unless you root.

    Yeah, without rooting your options are very limited.

    Get "Apps 2 SD" and move as many apps as you can to the SD card.

    Before I rooted I had to keep an eye on Google Maps, as its updates took up a lot of space. Go into Manage Applications and uninstall Google Maps updates periodically. Do the same for Market.

    History Eraser is a good app that will quickly clear caches and free up space.

    tried that app mover, it doesn't do anything really.
    all the apps that are moveable, I don't need a program to move them, button in the program settings is already there to move them to SD.

    Wasn't phone storage I needed, I want more data storage for downloads, movies and such. I don't need a bunch of apps.

    Movies and music take up a lot of space... way more than any apps will. You can buy a bigger microSD card and load that without rooting.

    Buy a bigger uSD, go with a name brand from a reliable source. I use NewEgg or Amazon (not Amazon Marketplace) or Costco. You can plug your mobile into your computer via USB and copy everything to the hard drive and then move it to the new card.

    Hey MacFett. Do you think it's better if the OP puts the uSD card in the phone while there's nothing on it? Let the phone put the appropriate folders on the uSD card, then move everything into it?

    Not to intrude, but from the device's standpoint, there is no difference how the folders were created.

    Page 144 of the OpV User Manual. Up to a 32MB Micro SD.

    I promise I'm not trying to be an ass, but do take advantage of your user manual. :)

    I just got this one a couple days ago for $6.99. Team 8GB Micro SDHC Class 4
    Works well. SD Tools says Write Speed: 10 to 14 MB/s, Read Speed: 38 to 40 MB/s. In reality I get about 4.5 MB/s copying from computer to phone. I think it will take me a long time to fill 8 gig. (7.39 formatted)

    The online manual has more info than the physical one provided with the phone.

    Thanks, I'll check that. I've seen the link but I thought it would be the same. It has to be easier to read than the ant sized letters in the written one.
