    Tried to install skype on my Droid Charge and received this message "insufficient storage avaliable". I uninstalled unused apps and cleared the cache on my larger apps. I moved some apps to my sd storage also. I am still having the issue. Any ideas to resolve this. I am new the to forums. Any info is appreciated. Thanks.

    How much space do you have available on your device? Check under settings - SD card & phone storage -- then at bottom internal phone storage

    If you only have 28 MB of internal space left? What do you have installed? I have quite a few apps/games installed and I've got 600 MB of space.

    I suspect you are looking at the SD card and not the internal storage.

    Here is what you should be looking at, and the bottom is what you want.

    The internal phone storage is at 0.94 GB. I have installed a some apps and music. I also watched a few movies from the media hub app. Could the movies be the issue? I tried going through my files to find them but I couldn't find anything. In the app it says they have been deleted.

    this is a skype known issue. hope you are rooted...


    Root your device.

    Get a shell on your device, for example by using "Android Terminal Emulator" (easier option) – or by enabling "USB debugging" in Settings => Application => Development, connecting your device to your computer via USB and using the Windows command line tool "adb.exe shell" (Android Debug Bridge).
    Type "su" [ENTER] in the shell to gain root permissions. (You might have to confirm granting root permission on your device.)
    Type "cd /data/data" [ENTER] and then "ls" [ENTER]. You should see a folder named "com.skype.raider".
    Type "rm -R com.skype.raider" [ENTER] to delete Skype's leftovers.
    Type "exit" [Enter] twice, close the shell and re-install Skype.

    goto settings

    wipe market data and cache and reboot and see if that doesnt do the trick.
    there was a rom that came out that was having this problem(not for this phone)
    and just clearing market cache and data fixed it.

    Thanks Eagle. I don't want to root my phone right now. Can you explain how to clear the market cache and data?
