    ...At least, no reason I can understand, LOL.

    I had 50% storage left last night, and added nothing to phone but a couple photos, which I assume are on sd card, and now my internal storage stat (on quick settings) says 44%.

    what uses internal storage besides apps? i deleted my text threads...are my gmail emails stored on internal storage? if so, how do i remove them?

    what else should i know/do? thanks so much! (very new to this phone and android...sorry if these questions seem dumb.)

    You need to get a cache cleaner like "1-Click Clear",clean all your caches once a day.

    Yeah, I can build up 10+ megabytes of cache files in a day or two. One click cache cleaner is the app I use to regain that space too.

    You can also lose space to tombstones. They are stored in /data/tombstones/ but you will need root access to delete them.
