    Welcome to the forum. Have u clean/wipe cache and data? Check ur settings to see what apps are using up the most memory. U may have to move them to ur SD card to free up internal memory. Good luck

    in ur settings/manage applications. not all can moved to SD but give it a shot. if not there are few apps out there like App2SD in the market that may help. after clearing data/cache u should reboot. it may/may not work. ppl are having a hard time freeing up memory

    Check your mms and text message stores. They are usually the biggest eater of memory. All mms pictures sent and received are stored in the phone unless you delete them, or back them up to another location.

    Use backup to gmail. You can then look at all your old messages through gmail. It even creates the labels and sports them for you. Call log and text can be restored to phone. Mms is still in the works.

    Get rid of all those, by backing up to gmail and/or saving the pics to sd card and then clearing all text and mms messages.

    That is most likely your issue.
    Let us know how out turns out.

    You can try to remove apps that are rarely used or idk if this is true but I've heard of some users talk about symbolic link between their memory cards and phones. Also try to remove bloatware only if you know how to though.

    Thanks Princess. :-)
    How do you like your D2G? I was looking into picking one up and rooting it until the D3 comes out...thoughts?

    Back to topic:
    If you look in
    Settings, Applications, Manage Applications, All...
    Look at the size of Dialer Storage. That is where android os keeps your mms and text stores, as well as your call log. If it's bigger than 5Meg, it's seriously time to clean house.
