    This has been going on for a couple months now,just now I am getting tired of it to ask how to fix it.I always get the "Phone storage space is getting low." message,which also it so i cannot receive texts since "memory is full".I have the app "CacheMate" which clears caches and usually I just reboot and its fine. My memory in CacheMate shows as this:

    Total:261MB
    Used:236MB
    Free:25MB

    My free memory has to be 27MB for my phone to take those "memory full" messages off and be able to receive texts.But my question is why so low?I think I might have put some files in the system partition while I was rooting a while back but im not sure.I also don't have that many programs,and I have deleted about 10~ in the past months that I usually use.

    Cache and data also reside in the same spot. If you want to know why it's so low then you need to determine what's using up your space. There are apps for this but I don't have names/links handy off the top of my head.

    I posted some pics of the top apps that take up most space...

    Yeah I moved all that can be moved.

    If you could find the name of the app it would be nice,I searched the market but only get apps that tell you how much space you have.

    Yeah I found that out a while ago that pic messages take up "a lot" of space,but right now i have none.

    Exactly I use almost everything I got so there would be no point if I remove them.

    Your dialer storage is out of control!

    I suggest clearing dialer storage data. You will lose all your texts, but it should help a ton.

    Holy CRAP is that a big dialer. Clear that out and you'll be in MUCH better shape.
