    A FACTORY RESET is not an option for most people so i've been looking elsewhere for solutions to this annoying notification memory problem.
    My research has shown me that this error doesn't appear to be the same for everyone.


    1. Some people have a problem with the HTC mail app (better settings below)
    2. Some people have a problem with the internet browser cache.
    3. Some people have a problem with the Peep cache.
    4. Some people have too many messages- have to delete
    5. Some people have an insanely large call history- have to delete

    HTC MAIL SETTINGS- these settings changes had a short term affect (one week)

    SETTING 1
    MAIL>Menu>more>Settings>General settings>Temporary attachment storage> sd card


    SETTING 2
    Send & receive> mail size limit> no limit


    My possible solution- hopefully long term
    Clear the contact storage cache
    SETTINGS>APPLICATIONS>MANAGE APPLICATIONS>CONTACT STORAGE>clear cache

    I'm curious if this solution is longterm or not.
    I cleared the peep and browser cache but it only helped for 2 days.
    Taking off the HTC MAIL app also only had a temporary effect.

    Does clearing the CONTACT STORAGE cache have a long term effect?

    I had this problem the day before yesterday. I went through, manually cleared the caches through manage applications in settings and removed some old apps, even though i was nowhere near the limit. Somewhere, something along the way freed the memory up again. Honestly, I'm still not sure what did it. But my gut feeling is along the way the memory doesn't necessarily get filled, it develops a "logjam" with an app or program and you just have to hit the specific area to free it up. If it comes back up again and I find out anything more solid, I'll let you know immediately.

    Got the same problem yesterday all I did was uninstall the apps that was recently updated or installed and it went away.
    Just a question but doesn't that setting applies when you open your mail and you have the option to load the images because of the kb limit size. Why would you make it no limit when it just adds more data on your storage? I have it set to 5kb btw.

    My worst nightmare came true

    The error came back yesterday so the Contact storage cache solution attempt was short term.

    I had to delete an app.
    I also emptied the trash on all email accounts.

    Those two steps appear to have made a difference. The error went away.
    who knows how long.

    I know I had that problem and for some reason, I went through and deleted a bunch of apps I no longer used and it seemed to clear up the problem. I read somewhere - though I have no idea if it's true - 75-100 apps might bog it down to where updates might not want to download.
    I had about 85 and took it down to about 50 and it worked fine after that. Was able to get the pending updates installed.

    Now, it could have been one specific app I deleted, or coming in under that ceiling. Can't say for sure - but just throwing it into the discussion.

    I just got the low space message today for the first time. Now I can't receive any text messages, I'm getting a notification message that says texts are being rejected because the text message memory is full...I deleted all my texts, but still getting the text message full/texts rejected error. Any solutions?

    it's complicated. I wish it were a matter of simply

    • deleting apps
    • not using htc mail/ changing settings
    • deleting cache
    • turning off twitter contact sync
    • deleting call history
    • deleting old sms messages
    • delete extra htc facebook account
    • reseting your phone
    the sad truth is i've done all of the above and that was the only solution.


    RESET PHONE
    was big- took an hour to get everything back with APP BRAIN.
    These apps are helping the problem never happen again:

    QUICK APP CLEAN CACHE

    Quick App Clean Cache - Android app on AppBrain

    SMS CLEANER PRO

    SMS Cleaner Pro - Android app on AppBrain

    CALL LOG CLEANER PRO

    Call Log Cleaner Pro - Android app on AppBrain

    i also deleted the extra htc facebook account- cause it was unnecessary.

    Turned off facebook and twitter sync and put in photos manually.
    'The photos was time consuming but worth saving memory.

    if that doesn't help I would suggest not using the stock email and messages app. This bug never appeared again after I deleted some apps and used K9 email app and handcent mms. From what I've heard the main cause of this is the stock mail app.

    I tried all the things mentioned in your thread too with no luck. I had forgotten about this thread though when I ended up doing the factory reset myself. And I keep my phone log and text messages pretty clean - so I doubt it comes from that.
    As far as the email theory: The email isn't stored on the phone - it simply polls the email servers and shows what is there. So it's not like Outlook where you can store the messages on your computer and build up huge pst files. So unless the glitch is somewhere in the polling system, I doubt that is it either.

    I'd like to keep this thread active and see what we can come up with. I only got this problem sometime around my first post in the thread. I just can't remember what I did before it to get the problem.

    brick

    just as a follow up to my "low space" notifications ... after deleting twitter, everything was fine until yesterday, i got the message again, shortly after, another notification, and then another popped up ... so I cleared all data from my calendar and then my contacts ... then the force closes began ... one after another ... I pulled the battery, as it began to reboot, it started over and rebooted, and again and again in a loop. brought it back to verizon ... dead phone, replacement on the way and i'm sad, I'm going to miss my amoled screen, bastards

    THANK YOU THANK YOU ... I performed the hard reset and now my Incredible is Incredible again ... sure I lost all my apps, settings and contacts, but my pictures, video's, calendar info is intact ...

    this goes to show you that tech support and service techs don't know enough, I almost threw in the towel

    THANKS CBLJazz for the idea

    Agree...I use the stock email app with my Bellsouth account. I thought when I was deleting the emails after I read them that they were gone...NOPE! They go into a Trash folder where they have to be deleted again. I had over 6300 emails to delete and there's no easy way to do it. You either delete them one at a time, or batch delete which only seems able to handle 4 or 5 at a time. I ended up clearing the data on the application menu, then set-up the account again.

    glad to help.

    sign up for APP BRAIN and get the app off of the market.
    it makes the reset process much less painful.

    AppBrain Android Market - find the best Android Apps and Games

    also these steps helped me:

    Helpful apps to make the reset a one time deal



    OTHER HTC setting tips
    turn off facebook & twitter contact sync.
    delete the htc facebook account the android app is better.

    if you use htc mail- set storage to card, mail size to mini mum.
