    Just curious if anyone else has the problem. I have about 90 apps installed, I have moved all the ones over to my sd card that can be(about 6). I have cleaned the cache, and deleted all texts. After deleting 4 or so apps that i only use occasionally, the notification has gone away for now......I am considering rooting just to avoid this problem, and move everything to my 32 gb sd card. But frankly, rooting scares me to death!!! So, does anyone have as many or more apps than this installed and no problem? or, am I just too app happy? Is there another way to increase my internal memory? Thanks for your help!

    There is no way to increase storage outside of rooting, with root you would be able to delete unused system/apps and move some data/apps into the system, plus apps2sd is way more efficient while running a custom ROM

    Lack of sufficient storage, still one of the Original D's biggest set-backs

    Rooting still is a bit too scary for me to pull the trigger.

    I suppose if you are already on FR22D then it can be a bit intimidating but really the D1 is the easiest of the phones to root. If you are truly tired of that low memory reading then that may be your only recourse. Or delete unwanted and unused apps.

    I'm noticing that newer apps and even some of the updates we are getting are now showing the ability to move to SD card. Go through your apps list and see if anything has changed, maybe you can move more stuff to the SD card.

    Also in cases where a system/app (or preloaded app) shows an update in the Market and you update it, that entire update gets stored in the data/app folder of your device leaving the original app in the system/app portion of your device, resulting in an entire unused app in the system of your phone

    What I love about the D1 and will have issues with during my transition to another device is, I know every file on my phone, if it is not used then it is not kept...100% streamlined

    I am having memory problems now too. How do I know what I can delete as old and what is needed? I am rooted, running UD 8.0.

    thanks.

    I have this problem too. I'm rooted on CM 9.15.10 nightly, D1.

    How do you tell if an app supports apps2sd? Do we have to check each apps' feature list one by one through market?

    Thank you.

    To uninstall an app tap men, tap applications, tap the app and tap uninstall. Try cleaning you cache it should free up some memory. Go to the Market and search cacher cleaner.

    I'm getting the "Low memory notification" but I'm not low on memory, at least by my standards.
    What am I missing?
    I have:
    Internal Storage: 168MB used 580MB free
    SD card: 595MB used 1.5 GB free
    RAM: 148MB used 236 MB free
    That doesn't appear to be low to me.
    How do I make the notification go away?
    How do I change what is considered "LOW?"
