Phone storage space is getting low... Help!!
ok, ive read what feels like a million forums now on this, and they all seem to have the simplest and non-detailed information. This notification is really starting to bug me, and i want to try all possible options before doing a hard reset. For the past week now, out of the blue, ive been getting non-stop notifications for low storage space. i am also getting the one about sms/mms messages, which will not allow me to open my messenger or photos. i havent installed, updated or downloaded anything onto my phone recently. This all started when i did add stuff to my SD card, but this should have no effect on my internal.
I keep going in between 20 something MB down to 16KB. It confuses me as to how just clearing data and maunually closing programs will make this drastic of a difference, especially when just a week ago I had over 50MB and like i said, have not downloaded, updated or installed anything new.
i only have 26 market apps downloaded, many of which i wont update even though available. I have heard a lot has to do with the email apps, gmail (which i dont use) has 280kb that wont let me clear, and the factory mail program, which i do use, has 55mb after clearing cache.
i have read a couple things about the facebook app. i unistalled the most recent update, which seemed to work for about a day. i have also cleared the data from the com.htc.socialnetwork which again, only helped for about a day.
im slowly in the process of deleting all of my thousands of text messages with a market app, since deleting them from the message program itself force closes when deleting messages. I just dont see why over night, i would start having this problem.
and the thing that weirds me out is the ONLY 2 programs on my phone that give me the clear cache option are my mail and internet. everything else is clear data. does this make a difference? or is this normal?
any help would be much appreciated! if a factory reset is what its going to take, then i guess ill have to go for it. but at this point i am ready to throw my phone out of a moving vehicle and find something more up to date. thanks!

There are 3 options to resolve this
1. Get rid on unnecessary apps.. duh
2. Do a soft reset on your phone to recover from apps with memory leaks
