    So my Droid has been giving me the low on space error and rejecting text messages, even though I haven't been doing anything that I know of that would take space off of the internal storage. I have even gone so far as to remove almost every app as I rarely use my phone anymore, but the low storage thing prevents texts from coming through which kills me.

    These are the steps I've taken

    - removed ALL apps, I have no 3rd party apps anymore
    - before removing them I used cachemate to clear all app cache
    - deleted all text messages/call logs



    What could possibly be taking up all this space? It feels as if there's a cache somewhere I haven't deleted yet but I don't know where it is. Any help is appreciated!

    My try a clean install of a ROM since you have already deleted apps and everything. I'm assuming you are rooted and running custom roms because of your signature

    Ok I had this problem a while ago, here's what I did. If you backup your phone a lot, delete all but the most recent nandroid backups, they take up a TON of space. If you've done this and there's still low space, make sure you've emptied the trash on your computer when you have the phone mounted.

    I would definitly suggest going into clockwork recovery, going to advanced, and clearing dalvik cache. Because that's what's leftover from applications, and cachemate doesn't clear it. I also suggest getting a gingerbread rom, a feature of gingerbread is better cache management.
