    HAD TO RESET
    I had to factory reset but it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be.
    Only took an hour to get the phone settings back.

    After getting the error for the 5th time, the phone froze. there was no other option.

    The good thing is that I've learned so much about settings now I don't imagine i'll ever have a memory problem again.

    App Brain made the process almost painless

    NOW I KNOW

    The killer is FACEBOOK & TWITTER contact sync turning that setting off makes a huge difference in memory.
    The reason i know is contact storage used to be my largest app at a whopping, obese 455MB.
    Now my largest app is a 7MB game i now this through
    SETTINGS>MANAGE APPLICATIONS (Sort by size)

    So i believe CONTACT SYNC in FB & Twitter was tripling my contact storage needs- a huge memory hog.
    now contact storage has a beach body- super small.

    So, EXACTLY how did you find out you had 455mb in use and How EXACTLY did you set the settings for Facebook? Glad you fixed your problem but this info would be useful to others here.

    MEMORY

    settings>sd & phone storage
    at the bottom of screen= phone memeory

    FACEBOOK

    I had a problem with the htc friend stream app being too large
    so i deleted the account=
    settings>accounts & sync
    I saw 2 fb accounts here. Don't use friend stream so i deleted it.
    all it was doing was getting photos and taking up a lot of memory

    My contact storage decreased significantly after deleting the htc fb account.

    TWITTER

    In the twitter app settings i unchecked contact sync.
    PHOTOS
    Had to get photos on the phone the old fashioned way- one at a time!
    i went to fb on my pc grabbed the photos i wanted for a contact and saved them and put them on contacts.

    Although this seems a little tedious it saves memory and only took about 30 mins because i only had about 15-20 photos.

    ****easy fix****

    The problem is the cache is full and needs to be cleared out. *I have hundreds of Apps and that is NOT the problem. *
    Here is how you clear out the cache and this sorts out the problem:
    From the home screen > Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage Applications
    Wait for all the icons of your Apps to appear then touch the Running Tab at the top
    Click Menu then Sort by Size (the largest apps will appear at the top)
    Select each app and then CLEAR DATA.
    Till clear your cache and solve the "Low on Space" problem. *The biggest cache users are your email apps.

    Have you tried to install the app "app 2 SD"?

    many apps can run from the sd card and it knows which ones can.

    It will also assess all your cache and offer a one button delete to clear the cache's of all the apps at once.

    I have 7 pages of apps and still have 583mb free of internal memory.
    Tip... don't allow "live screensavers" to be ran from sd... they need to load "before" the sd card loads.

    Great tip on the app 2 sd, windstrings. It's the only thing that worked on my Motorola Droid. Thanks! P.S. I think you get the cheese :)

    Your welcome!.....
    its combined function of allowing you to delete your cache also helps as so many folks don't want the tedious chore of searching through each and everyone of their apps to see what has cache that needs clearing... this just gets it all in one shot!
