    You also need to consider the data and cache that your apps store in internal memory.

    The SD card isn't really relevant unless you are on Froyo or have some sort of app2sd solution. The SD card does not expand your internal memory.

    go to your browser settings and Clear your browser history, cookies, and cache. That should make a difference.

    It isn't the number of apps, it is the size of those apps. There are quite a few larger apps out there, which with the limited internal space on the Eris, they can become an issue. Take a look at Settings > Applications > Manage Applications Once there, press the menu button and click "Sort by size". The larger apps will reside at the top of your list. 7 apps does seem a little extreme to be taking you over the limit though.

    Since a lot of phones coming out didn't skimp as much on the internal memory plus with Froyo's ability to put Apps2SD (sort of haha), apps keep getting more and more complex.

    Didn't the Eris come with 256M like the Droid? I have at least 50 apps and still have over 100M free. What 7 apps do you have installed? Seems like a lot of memory usage for that few number of apps.

    Try DiskUsage - Android app on AppBrain It is supposed to show disk usage of the internal memory and you can use that to find what is taking up so much space. I've never used it though.

    I use cachemate from the market... Works for me... There are a lot of apps that are big in size and on top of it take up a lot of "data/cache" memory...

    * Thanks for all the help so far *

    What 7 apps do you have installed? Seems like a lot of memory usage for that few number of apps.
    Sorted from largest to smallest size wise
    #1. Contacts Storage - 25.53MB
    #2. Angry Birds Beta - 13.12MB
    #3. Twitter - 11.62MB
    #4. Maps - 5.88
    #5 HTC_IME_mod - 5.40 ( That was a file I used to root with )
    #6 Mail - 4.22 MB
    #7. Astro File Manager - 3.45MB

    Ok theres more than 7, maybe like 20? My fault. Angry Birds, AppBrain, Astro, Beatiful Widgets, eoeAppInstaller Pro, Maps, MixZing, Notes, Pandora, Scanner Radio, ScoreCenter, Shazam, Twitter, Video Player, Wake Up!, and Wireless Teether. I filtered my Apps by Downloaded.

    When I get home Ill try that AppBrain idea and see what shows me. In the mean time, should I maybe consider looking into Froyo so I can actually utilize my SD card?
