    I ended up hitting "factory data reset." Back up data first. It's all good again.

    The only way I've found to get rid of that error is to go to my running applications in the settings menu, sort them by size, and then clear the application data. Good luck!

    This is coming from the 2.3.4 update. My wife and I had the same phone; I recieved the 2.3.4 update and my wife did not. I recieved that error like 2 weeks after the update. I did a factory reset and the low memory error showed up again a few days later. This also keeps the phone from syncing your gmail account. Had enough and bought the Bionic. Very happy now!! :biggrin:

    Yes, it has something to do with the update. I got my update pushed through the middle of August and have had to do 3 master rearranging. Tonight I'd had enough and VZW is doing a warranty replacement and sending me the Incredible 2. After the last reset I figured out I could clear the low memory message by doing a battery pull, which means while the phone is still on and awake, just pull the battery out. Then start phone as normal. It should clear the message, until next time.
    Call Verizon and have them check if your update went all the way through.

    OK so I talked to a Verizon rep today to try and get an early upgrade due to the amount of bugs from 2.3 and the rep informed me that on Oct. 29th they were releasing a major update to "fix" all the gingerbread problems. She said they were aware of all of the bugs and that they were keeping up with all of the forums and were releasing this on that date. Now as we all know several times dates are thrown around only to never happen so I guess to all those who got the bad update and those who didn't get one at all, keep your fingers crossed. I know I am mine.

    you're welcome!

    you're welcome!!! it's been about a week and i've added about 100 apps or so, the "low space" icon showed up and i again cleared data, but this time on firefox and my fix worked, so i think if we figure out what are the big memory hogs on our incredibles we can "fix" the issue until a more permanent solution can be found. but it beats having to do a factory reset!

    I have been clearing the cache on some apps but the fix was only temporary.

    I cleared the trash folders of all 3 of my mail accounts and haven't had the problem since. YMMV

    facebook has been my memory hog. Sometimes Go SMS Pro if people are bombarding me with pictures etc. But this last time, over the weekend, Facebook was hogging a ton of resources so I cleared it and it's all good since... now I just got the 2.3.4 update so who knows the fun may just be beginning LOL
