    Your phone will give you the message when internal storage gets to about 25-30mb. As stated it has nothing at all to do with the amount of free space on your sdcard. Sounds like you have alot of apps installed and have made the right solution by moving some of them to your sdcard. Make note that even then a tiny portion remains on your phone's internal storage. I'll re-iterate that your photos are already stored on your sdcard.

    good luck

    I loved my OG DROID, and kept it past my upgrade date, but lack of app storage space ultimately drove me to a new phone. RIP - you did me well, OG DROID.

    The internal free space was apparently low enough that several apps, each under 5 MB, would not update. Oh well, eventually they'll get in, and these were for apps I rarely or never use, but they are part of the system and cannot be uninstalled.

    Thanks for your explanation.

    If you have a rooted phone, there are things you can do without having to put in a different rom or buying a new phone.

    I use titanium backup and it has tools in it such a wiping the "dalvick cache" which is where files sometimes get stuck on installation. Also, I "freeze" system apps such as youtube and other programs like facebook I don't use. Even though the system may say a program can't be moved to the sd card, many times it can be by using the batch tool. As always, you can cause things to fail this way, such as moving an app that has a widget, then wondering why the widget won't work.

    Another app I use this way is System Tuner. And another is Memory Usage Plus.
