    Thanks Stu40,

    A simple way to free up storage space is by deleting all the log files in the device memory. Just dial *#9900# on your phone and select option 2 Delete dumpstate/logcat in the prompted menu. It's not necessary to root your phone either. Thats it!
    I followed your instructions and everything seems good. Although it did wipe out all the internet bookmarks (except default ones).
    But all my phone contacts are still there, PHEW!
    If I find any other adverse effects I'll post them on this thread.

    Thanks again

    Thank you. After weeks of frustration I have gone from 89% down to 24%

    I still have Gingerbread (v 2.3.6) on my phone so this is not necessarily associated with a newer version of Android.

    Does deleting the log files provide a fairly long term fix? It sounded like others had reset their phones and still had their system memory consumed over a short period of time.

    Are there any other adverse effects? Someone mentioned losing their bookmarks which is really not that big of a deal.

    To STU40 ---> Dude i created an id in here just because i could not stop my self from telling you that you are a god to solve this problem.
    I even called up the samsung phone support centre and all they could come up with was to reset my phone or take it to a service centre where i would have to stand up in a queue for 2 hours.
    Thank you for solving my problem in a matter of seconds.

    Sara2686: You probably forgot to type in the * (asterisk) so type: *#9900#
    Worked for me

    Thanks Stu, I manage a friends samsung, updates, clean ups installations etc. Her phone has been showing " system running low" for so long that I can't think when it first started. I can not up date anything and the phone is sooooo slow. I have searched and searched for a fix, to no avail, until I came across your suggestion. 1/2 a minute to enter the details and do its job and WOW! Went from 1.95 gb of 1.97 capacity to 723 mb of 1.97. Thank you Thankyou

    Stu you are exactly what every one else said, a blooming life saver.
    Tried everything to recover memory and all the gains I made disappeared quite quickly.
    Your solution not only cleared more memory than all other suggestions but looks to be a long term gain.
    I solute you sir.

    I tried this but I get a message saying "connection problem or invalid mmi code"
    I typed it in exactly as you said "*#9900#" and all I get is this message.

    Could I get the same result using a usb or an app? My phone is rooted by the way.

    Thanks for headstart.
    I tried everything to fix it up.
    1- deleting extra large app
    2- made a space of 300 mb free
    3- moved app to sd card
    4- deleted cache

    But When i saw the ''culprit app' in your post, i tried to find it. WaLa..!!!.....Now my app is going to be updated on its own. No more "insufficient storage available '' warning..

    Happy to get my old S2 back on the track...

    Hi, I've recently seen exactly this problem, and don't have a massive number of apps.....I tried the #9900# solution.....I got a message on screen saying USSD code running followed by the error Connection problem or invalid MMI code.

    Any suggestions anyone?
