Galaxy Ace memory full

I am having problems with my Galaxy Ace saying that memory is nearly full. I have moved several (all downloaded) apps to my SD card, but the only way the phone works at the moment is by uninstalling Facebook, which is one of the reasons I changed to this phone. Is there a way of deleting as opposed to uninstalling apps or can I force an installation to the sd card? Would appreciate help, banging head on wall

Re: Galaxy Ace memory full

The biggest (only) problem with the Ace is that it only has 4Gb of internal storage. Once you have taken into account the system partition and the OS there is only about 1.6Gb left for user data (including apps). Some apps take up massive amounts of space and cannot be moved to an external SD card but some can be moved, even then, app data stays on the phone side! Make sure you store (move) all your photos, videos and music to an ext card and clear the cache of all your apps regularly - It's the best you can do with that phone unfortunately.

Re: Galaxy Ace memory full

Hi

 

Not sure that I really want to start getting this involved. I have made some space by clearing cache and have moved all I can to my SD card. I will bear this in mind if it gets really bad though.

 

Thank you

Thanks for your reply. I guess I'll have to keep freeing the cache until I can upgrade my phone.

Go into "My Files" and find the directory that your photos are in. Press Menu then Move and select the photos you want then press Move again and navigate to your external SD card and press done. Cache can be cleared for each of your apps in Settings >Applications >All

Re: Galaxy Ace memory full

I've done something similar to this, basically where I became a 'superuser'. I worked for a little while but the old problem keeps rearing it's head. So annoying!

It has around 155mb of usable memory.

 

One option is to install Apps2SD to move apps to the memory card. Also go into settings > applications and clear data/cache from your most used apps. Facebook generally uses a fair amount of storage space.
