    I have had my HTC Wildfire S for about three weeks now. I have a love/hate relationship with it. I love HTC phones in general but I am having mega memory problems with this phone. I have only been able to download 16 apps and out of those 5 have made it to my 8gb SD card., which I have over 7gb of storage left on. Currently, my phone states I have 7.52mb of space left. For the life of me, I cannot figure out what is eating all the memory. Several times a day, I clear data, history, and caches and I still do not gain much more space than that 7.52mb. I do have App2SD and App Cache Cleaner installed. I have not been able to install anymore apps then the 16 I have installed nor any updates, which I guess it states I have 7 updates to install. I constantly get messages that I have low space and have to run the low space wizard thing. I wish to be very thorough so someone can help me out because it is not like I have deep pockets and can run right out and buy a new phone like other people can and I am also a first time Android user:

    Idk if my phone is rooted or not. This is my first android and smartphone. I am not a very tech-savvy person. But I do know that I have plenty of room on my card for more apps despite the garbage my phone is stating it has low memory and I know this phone is notorious for having low memory. How can I go about getting rid of useless programs? I cannot even use the preloaded Google browser. I type in something in the search box and it doesn't go anywhere and that is why I installed the Boat Browser. And the Flashlite Plugin? I don't even see where to access it so why should I even have it then and let it take up precious spacious? I even did a factory reboot, thinking that it might help. It did, for like, 5 minutes, I had 27mb of space and then within minutes, I was getting that low memory warning. Something or somethings is really eating my memory up and quickly. I don't think it is fair that I can only be limited to install a certain number of apps when I have such a nice little phone. It is like they want to push me even further down into poverty and force me to buy a $700 phone with 64gb with money I don't have. It really isn't fair. Or right. It is like a marketing scam or some rot like that. I even had to uninistall iHeart radio which I love so dearly and know I am stuck with Pandora that I don't really like. Other than the apps on my SD card, I have 21 photos and 5 ringtones. That's it. I have posted this other places too and not a soul has answered this. It is like a big state secret or something so I hope someone here will take the time to answer this and help me please. I'd be so very grateful and appreciative. Thank you and have a great day.

    This is a great phone. After rooting (an easy process) and unlocking bootloader( a tedious process) I have a gig of space for apps by partitioning my sdcard and using data2sd zip. I have also used dark tremors app2sd which moves all my apps and dalvik cache to sdcard. No low memory problems at all. There's pretty good support for this phone on xda. Good luck

    After some great effort, was finally able to get data2sd to work with cm9. Haven't had any low internal storage space problems since.
    I tried S2E as well, but seemed to lag more.
