    I got the same message yesterday also. The phone says I still have 22.82 m of space left but I keep getting the message even after I uninstalled a few apps.

    How much space of internal storage do I have? Can I move some apps over to the SD card which has 12 G left (have 2.1OS)

    Thanks for the help

    You need to be rooted or have 2.2 to move apps to the SD card

    That's what I thought: I have neither. Just wonder why the message is showing up when I have space left

    Thanks for the quick reply

    I used to get the same message. After I got it even my text msgs got rejected due to a lack of space. Ever since I installed the BB froyo app and I have apps2sd I know longer have that problem lol

    It's very likely that you need to clear cache and data. Check the amount of text messages and email you have stored on your phone.

    Out of space

    jsh1120

    How do I do that. I looked all over and didn't find the cache. I went into settings, into manage applications and even the individual applications but had no luck. I deleted all threads and zeroed out the sent messages but couldn't zero out the received ones

    TIA

    One thing to note; if you're using a non-Gmail email service (I use hotmail); when you delete an email it remains on the phone in a trash folder. You need to also delete it there to get it off the phone (and it's not on the SD card). I was getting the low space message until I deleted my 5000 trashed emails. Actually, I deleted the email account and readded it. Droid doesn't allow mass deletes.

    If you use the k-9 email client pointed at whatever server you like (including gmail) you can mass delete emails and remove them from trash.

    As far as cleaning cache, I use an app called "Quick App Clean Cache" (as I recall). It's nothing more than a UI that looks for cache associated with other apps and allows you to delete cache (and sometimes data) associated with each. If you're rooted you can do this in a single action.
