    Depending on what type of phone....make sure you delete unwanted messages and clean your cashe out. If you have an SD card try moving stuff like apps and pictures to that to make room on your phone.

    Running a custom ROM? Or just rooted stock? I'm assuming you're on 2.2. :)

    If it's a custom ROM you might be able to enable the "move all apps to SD" feature before following the next paragraph. If it's rooted stock then look in the market for an app called apps2sd. Follow the instructions in the app if there are any.

    Or, and this really bites, go to Settings> Applications> Manage> All tab> check every single app you can to see what can be moved to the SD card. In fact, you're probably better off hitting the menu softkey and telling the phone to sort the apps by size and move the largest that you can to the SD card.

    Glad you got it going! Did you install a cache cleaner? They can really help.

    Yeah, especially the Dalvik cache. That bugger gets clogged up with ALL sorts of stuff. :D

    I'm doing well, Mark! Let us know how much space the cache cleaner frees up.
