Too many Apps??

I had no problems downloading App World but I downloaded two apps and when I went to download a third it told me that I didn't have enough space on my phone...How is that possible?

Your getting low with file free of ~9mb file free.

 

 Now, remove the battery of your device, hold a minute, replace and reboot. What is the File Free now?

That clears brower and memory cache and apps that grab memory and don't let go of memory quite so easily.

 

So what is the new number File Free now?

Re: Too many Apps??

Once i did everything you said, checked out the articles, and deleted some texts and emails I got up to about 150,000 kb free. At least I know what to do now to free up some space. Thanks!
