    Need help. I am getting the message that my phone's storage is full
    I have removed all my email messages, all my text messages, and all my photos. When I try to send a txt message I get this:
    "Phone storage is full! Delete some files to free space."

    So what do I delete? I have a number of non-default apps installed (Facebook, Dropbox, Evernote, Aldiko, Chrome, Instagram, Starbuck's, Gyro, a local TV weather app, and mobile banking app, and maybe others). I have 4 Gb system memory and 4 Gb internal memory. It is the system memory that is nearly full, 1.s Gb for apps, 2.62 Gb for system data,and 137 Mb available.I have a 2 Gb SD card that is clear.

    How can I remedy this situation?

    Welcome to the forums.
    What version of Android do you have? You can look by going to Settings>About phone> Android version should be the 5th or 6th line down.

    1. see what's using all of your Internal Storage -->Settings-->Storage-->Click on Each (Apps, Pictures, etc.) and it will tell you. then delete what is not necessary (make sure everything is backed up via Google/Gmail and Dropbox etc.)
    2. if all else fails - do a nuclear hard reset back to factory state and then manually reinstall/resync everything. make sure everything is backed up first!

    good luck.

    Nope, that is enough.
    If you wish, you can disable some of those apps you don't use. Here is how: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...able-apps.html

    This might create more space, due to uninstalling updates for apps you don't need/use.

    Great. Glad that worked.
    Question: Has the device been updated since you got it?

    Not sure. I'm new to smartphones, so I don't know about updating. What's involved, and can I do it myself?

    I was wondering for a different reason. I just found out that your device did get updated at some point in time. It originally came with Android 2.3 and you have 4.0.4.

    I was thinking to suggest to reboot into recovery to clear the system cache. However, the instructions I found were rather cryptic and without any sort of pictures, may be difficult to follow if you are actually trying it, especially for the first time.

    Here is the link I found for it: How to get the LG Lucid 4G to boot into recovery - LG Cell Phones Blog

    If you want to know more about recovery, here you go: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...ifference.html

    Any questions, feel free to ask.
