Has anyone had the notification that the phone is running low on space,?
Last night my Incredibe notified me that I am running low on phone storage. I check the SD Card and Phone Storage and each section shows that there is pleanty of storage. I checked the memory and there was over 200M. I moved the few pix i had from phone storage to sd card and formated the phone storage and still it did not change. Right after that, I decided to pull the battery. After I replaced the battery, the phone continued to cycle thru it boot process, (HTC Incredible, HTC quietly brilliant and the verizon logo) NON-STOP!!! This went on for hours. Finally it stopped, but I had to perform a factory reset.
Here is a link to a bunch of us having this exact same problem and some suggestions on how to work around it.
I'm getting the same message. Went to the Verizon store today and they gave me the same "hard reset" BS. I'm not comfortable doing that because of all I've invested in setting my phone up just how I want it.
When I first got the low storage message (it's happened a half dozen or so times), I did what the phone prompted me to do (as I assumed I really was low on storage space). I tried deleting an app or two. When I did, the message went away only to rear it's ugly head later. When I finally checked storage space, I had over 5.6GB available out of a total of 6.6GB.
More recently I decided to simply ignore the message. I visited the store today, however, because the phone will not let me update four of my existing apps.
HTC must to fix this problem. Otherwise my thousands of blog readers and Twitter and Facebook connections will need to be warned about this phone. Up til now I've sung its praises. Unless they address this obvious issue, I'll have to correct my reviews/comments.
I was able to resolve the Low on Space issue by deleting all of the text messages. This made the error go away. I had alot of text message, but still had plenty of space available.
I also made a change to save attachments in text messages to be saved on the SD card. This can be done in the options located in the text message app.
I hope this fixes your issue too.
I had the same issue and I looked at what took up a lot of data and the only big thing was data in text messages. So we when I deleted a text message with a BIG attachment it went away.
Verizon had me run the*228 option 2 roaming update and it fixed the problem!
I FOUND THE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!**************************************
If you follow the following steps, this will fix the "low on space" glitch.
- go into your app settings page> manage applications
- use the next steps on the following apps: Facebook, Google Earth, Gmail, Yahoo Mail
- one at a time, click on the app> then click uninstall updates (not to worry, this will not uninstall your app)
- next if not already done, click [Move to SD Card]
- Do this for all the apps listed above. Upon completion of these steps you should notice the "low on space" notification disappears. Your phone should be as good as new.
*NOTE: You will notice once you connect online, those apps will want to update themselves. At this point it is safe to allow these updates to update. This will not cause the "low on space" notification to reappear, i promise. Keeping those particular apps on your SD card will prevent those daily updates from downloading to your phone memory thus preventing the "low on space" glitch from being triggered.
Hope this information helped.

How were you able to move facebook and gmail to SD card? My dinc does not offer that
I also tried to move Facebook to SD card and it won't let me. I uninstalled updates returning to factory defaults and still nothing. Not sure why it isn't working. Anyone have any ideas on why it won't work?
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!
Go to you settings and set the option to allow installation of programs from other sources.
Open up the browser on you phone and enter "dl3.htc.com/misc/inc8049.apk" this will download a file. If the installation didn't start automatically, go to you downloads folder and open the application. That will install it. No more low memory problem.
Installed the package but still no joy. SD & phone storage says that our of 736MB I still have 532MB available. I did a factory data reset a couple of weeks ago but the warning seemed to come back in a couple of days. Thinking about doing a "format phone storage" then another factory data reset. After that, I'm out of ideas.
I've tried everything short of a hard reset. I don't want to do that because I'll lose all kinds of data, settings, preferences...on and on. I've called HTC about 4 times trying to get this resolved. I've been told several times that the software update would fix it (Gingerbread 4.08). I'm still waiting for mine. They say they can't "push" it through and that I'll just have to wait for my update to come to me :-(
Seems to be working. Thanks so much for the info! Hopefully it will work after the download finishes. It's happened several times and usually the battery removal did the trick, but not this time.
