    Um, are you certain you have 1GB of internal memory left? I didn't think there was that much memory. I have 164mb of space left on my internal storage. If you have a GB then you have tons of free memory.

    Try double twist for syncing your mac's iTunes. Works great.

    OK, then with 1gb of memory left there still is tons of memory. OP I don't think you have anything to worry about.

    While 1 GB is still a lot of space 7 GB is used up with nothing. I delete things and memory space is not freed up. The gripe isnt over lack of space its over the fact that I can't free up space deleting things.

    On SD card & phone storage > Internal phone storage > Available space you only have 1GB showing?

    Maybe drastic but you do have option of "Format phone storage" which would erase or you could try deleting via usb hook-up

    Try, when synchronized as mass storage, go to your control panel and go to folder options, advanced settings, and enable/click on show hidden files. Apply. Then go look at your SD card and phone on your computer and see if you really have everything deleted.

    That fixed it. I had to use a different method becuz I'm on a mac. For some reason when you delete things it keeps a trash file that is hidden. Thanks all.

    OK, I'm a PC and a past win-mo user, so is this a mac thing or is this common to android OS?
    As of this moment I haven't deleted anything.

    I am new to android/Linux OS.
    Though i do know that Linux works it's files/folders in a more secure/different way then win.

    If you're a Mac user, sometimes the problem is as simple as emptying the trash. Just like with a flash drive, the space on the disk won't show up as recovered till you empty the Mac's trash can. Dumb but true.
