    Hi,

    Im not sure if anyone can help me on this, but my phone (htc desire) kept saying low on phone storage and I assumed this meant the memory card (originally 4gb) so I purchased an 8gb sd card and put it in my phone, however the same message popped up low on phone storage. I now realise that its the memory storage thats low and not the sd card. Is there are way of moving my apps etc on to the sd card rather than using the phone memory?

    If this isnt possible is there any other way of getting around the low phone storage problem?

    Thankyou :)

    On the HTC Eris, it helps to clear the cache that builds up for each program.

    ^ Definitely check data and cache for your apps. There's no "getting around" it. You either live with the message or do some housekeeping.

    You should backup your apps using Astro or similar file manager app. Then you can uninstall the apps you don't regularly use. When you want to reinstall, the downloaded app is more readily available and quicker to reinstall (don't have to wait for another download). Not handy but manageable.

    Thankyou. Have moved all my photos off phone and that seems to have got rid of message. Guess ill have to wait till i can move apps onto sd card to download anything else. Thankyou again :)

    I beg to differ. I just found this app. Check out Visual Voicemail Plus by PhoneFusion. I found a setting in the app under "Notifications and Sound", called "Disable space warning". Kind of weird that a Voicemail app has this function, but it's awesome! Also, you can disable "SDCard not found" notifications and enable an "Ignore carrier voicemail" option, for those who use Google Voice.

    The "Plus" version is free to use, but it does require registration. Just use a secondary email for ads. You don't need to purchase.


    Now, I can't prove this'll work, as I'm on CM7, but the app seems to have constant updates (it was just updated 6 days ago), so it should support ICS.
