    Default Insufficient Storage Available

    Every time I update an app, I have to clear all app's caches and usually uninstall some other app. This is getting God awful annoying. I only retain a week's worth of email, no attachments, not even the full messages. I'm not downloading a bunch of stuff. Almost all apps that can be moved to SD card are.

    Why am I so darn low on free space?

    Also, I've noticed that depending on what screen I go to, I could have 120 megs free... or 230 megs free. Why can't Android properly report my about of free space? Also, why isn't 120 megs enough for a 5 meg update? Partition problems?

    I'm not rooting my phone. I'm not looking forward for a complete reset either.

    You should be have plenty of space on the internal storage on your phone. I have a little over 1gb of space. You shouldn't have to transfer apps to the sd card.

    It's a little more depending on if your rooted and the rom your running.

    This also began happening to me after I upgraded to ICS. Also now my 3D takes a long time when running App2SD to finish compiling app sizes. I :-(

    I still don't know why any of you are having to move apps to the sd card. I've never moved any app to my card with this phone.

    This is with an aosp rom!

    I thought all 3D phones had the same amount.

    Having the same issues here, good to know it's not due to dropping it into the toilet. I'm going GS3 soon, just want it to last until then.

    My only suggestion would be links2sd or a larger ad card. I had storage issues like that with my Optimus S. It's really frustrating I'm sure.

    Increased card sizes would have zero effect as this is internal storage. I have about 2 gigs free on my SD card and all but one or two apps that can be moved over to the SD card have been.

    That's why rooting is an advantage. Most roms have bloatware already removed and you can remove internal apps and system apps as well.

    Why the difference in what it thinks the available space is?

    I don't know! How many user apps do you have installed? I have 40 installed on the internal.

    I can't think of anything else a non rooted device could do to free up internal space.

    If you root your phone things become very easy.

    Everyone doesn't root. It started with the ICS update and HTC or Sprint needs to come up with a solution. I doubt if they will because the EVO 3D is a dead phone.
    I'm going Galaxy S3 soon, 32gb version. With my 32mb SD Card I'll have plenty of room.

    You know as well as I do, sprint nor HTC will ever do about it. My only suggestion is to call and keep calling and maybe you will get a hold of someone from Sprint who will actually help you.

    Really? This is the same Sprint that dragged their feet on the ICS release. And you don't want me to get started on the worthless POS Sprint stores.

    I agree completely! The only thing I can say good about there service is there replacement service. Phone died and two days later I had a replacement.

    You're lucky to have a good Sprint store. My local ones are and not Sprint owned.
