    ....my phone is not rooted. Do I need a utility or is the function built into the phone?

    Thanks for any help!

    Yes. There's a free app in the market called Android System Info. If you were rooted theres an app that will clear all caches with one touch.

    On the top press app, that will bring up a list. Press on the app it will give various options including clearing cache.

    is this the same cache that clockwork lets you clear in boot recovery?

    Best program for clearing cache is Quick App Clean Cache. It's about 80 cents, and has one click clean without root. I use it everyday for my EVO, and never lets me down.

    I just do it the "Regular" way. From any webpage press menu - more - settings and scroll down to cache/cookies/history and clear all.

    Just a few minutes ago I was having issue posting - the browser wouldn't load at all even though I had good 4g connection - clearing cache/cookies/history sure did fix that problem.
