    That's not a virus.....

    Just move some apps to SD card, you're running out of space.

    Definitely not a virus. Just manage your space on the SD card buddy :)

    This is not a virus so don't fret there. Take your time, do a search. I have seen a few threads about the low memory issue. Never had it (yet) so I am unsure how to fix it. Just look around and your problem will be resolved with a little work.

    When I got those messages on my droid I went into settings and manage applications and go to market and clear cache and data. That will fix your market not working and download properly and give you more space on your phone. I also moved apps 2 sd for space and clear my phone cache every so often.

    Depends which apps they and their size if moving them to sd will help on space. Uninstall all unused apps. Try that.

    Well with some custom roms you can move anything that's not a system file. Google Earth is the biggest one.

    Clear out all your text messages, especially if you have tons of mms (picture messages). Uninstalling apps that you don't use often will help too. With Bugless Beast you should be able to move everything other than system files to the SD card. I have some 20 apps installed and I have 181MB free at the moment... (BB .5)

    Now you can move almost every app to SD, except those that have copy protection. I believe Pete also has this option in the BB toolkit, correct me if I'm wrong there. Been running MIUI now for a while so I'm out of touch with BB.
