The settings in my phone tell me I have 488MB of space available, but whenever I try to download an update or a new app (even as small as 4MB), it tells me I have "insufficient storage available". Is there a way to fix this?

You can clear the cache partition, there's a guide for doing that in the guides section. What I do is just go through all my installed apps (Settings, Apps) and uninstall ones I never use and clear the cache and data on some others.

Welcome to Android Central!

Open system settings > applications. Then sort by size and clear the cache for the apps using the larger amounts of storage. This is only a temporary solution since the problem seems to be an issue with the amount of free space, which may be related to the number or size of apps you have installed.

Let us know if you have further questions.
