    Hey, basically the internal memory of my phone keeps getting smaller. I have to delete texts as soon as they come in to save space. Recently I was unable to receive texts because there was no room. I've tried moving applications to the SD card but it won't let me move anymore. I've had to delete my facebook and music apps and all my music to make room. I haven't downloaded any new stuff but the phone memory keeps shrinking. When I delete apps and download them again they go to the internal memory and not the SD card. There's a lot of room on the SD card but no way to get stuff on. The memory is now at 30MB which isn't too bad and makes me wonder if it wasn't facebook or something.

    Have you considered backing up your important information, contacts, pictures, and video? Then you could do a factory restore on your device and it'd work like new =)

    Oh man..that's the same problem I used to have..I even went to the extent of uninstalling all the market apps and re-installing them on my phone (yeah i know a factory reset would have quickly sorted it out, but i didn't want to loose any contacts)..then I came across this app "1tap cleaner" on play store..it's a one stop shop for clearing any temporary/cache files stored on internal memory..you can do that yourself by going to settings -> application -> manage applications -> select the application you want to clear cache for -> click on clear cache..but this is going to be a tedious affair..

    To avoid all the hassle, i downloaded 1tap cleaner (by SAM LU) and now I clear all temporary files in one go..it won't give you a lot of space but helps keeping a check on cache files..in my case its always the PLAY STORE which occupies the most memory for storing files..

    Hope it helps..:)

    Hi Sourav

    This is a perennial problem in this phone. Try these following methods.

    1. Install App2SD from the store
    2. Move all the movable apps to the SD card
    3. Go to Settings->Manage Applications and open Gmail and clear the cache.
    4. Do the same for all the often used apps.

    This is sure to release some space for you.
