    i cleared some apps and low memory went away but now its back and i didnt dwld anything.

    also, why is it when people send me pics in mms it has a download button and than doesnt doenload it when i click on it.

    why cant it be simple like all my other phones and just pop up the pic when received.

    keep pushing me to iphone, soon i will have no choice. windows is also pushing me to a mac.

    damn

    Hard reset the phone may fix pics downloading.


    Take battery out. Hold down home back arrow and end call and install battery. Then click

    Home button

    Don't hard reset - only a temp fix. Best u can do is bitch at Sprint and ask for a $credit until they fix it.

    spoke to multiple tier 2 reps at sprint and than they sent me to call htc who was no help either.

    no hope at all. i tried clearing internet settings and also deleted email accounts. nothing helped.

    gotta see if there is a decent backup app that will save some of my main settings to avoid major headache after hard reset if i choose to do it.

    or just wait till 2.1 to see if its better and fixed all the little bugs i notice.

    or say goodbye to android and move to iphone.

    had the same problem with downloading pictures sent to me via text messages. disable your wifi if it's turned on and you should (possibly) be fine, it's hit or miss with me now.
    sometimes with wifi turned on it'll download and if it doesn't I turn wifi off and try again.

    Apple does a great job of managing resources for you. The iphone is a good alternative for many people.

    deleting text message threads and clearing the cache of the browser and other apps should help with the low memory issue

    your low memory issue could be why you're getting the mms download button because your phone doesn't have enough memory to download it, however many people (myself included) have this problem even though we have plenty of available memory (I have about 90MB free), in this case hard resetting is a temporary fix (worked again for about a month for me) however when mms stopped working again I didn't think it was worth resetting my phone again. the 2.1 upgrade should fix this problem, in the meantime I have people email the pics or go to the sprint picture mail website to view them

    I have the same issue and found the problem. It is your HTC Mail app. It is taking up ALOT of space. My problem is I cant figure out how to clear out the data. Even deleting my mail accounts did not fix it.

    I don't use the mail app, just gmail, but have you gone to settings->manage applications and deleted data from there?

    I would but that is not an option in Android 2.1. You don't have the option to clear data for the mail app. Otherwise I would have done it already.

    Have you done the firmware update? I remember having the same issues with the old firmware not with the last one. menu> settings> about phone> System updates> Firmware update
