To free up space, delete the photos, videos, and apps that you don't want anymore.

How can I Clear Storage from my HTC phone?

Have an HTC Boost Mobile Phone. I have 2.93GB/2.99GB. I have uninstalled all the unnecessary apps already. I have 51 files in my gallery that I don't want to lose. How can I clear storage? I don't want to delete any of my pictures.

Use an app like Google Photos. Within the app, you can set it to sync with the cloud and delete the photos from the memory. They disappear but you can access them anytime within the Google Photos App or online at Google Photos. Then even after you have removed apps and images, put your phone into Recovery and choose Wipe Cache Partition and Clear Dalvik Cache. The phone will reboot in between your selections. This will delete further cache from your internal memory to free up storage.

Low storage on my Samsung concord phone?

I have this low storage icon that keeps popping up on my phone, I have deleted pictures and some apps, it is still there. I don't know what to get rid of

Reboot the phone. This often removes the message you are seeing after deleting items. You will want to use an app that clears off the cache on your device regularly. Also, delete old phone logs and test messages. These holds up internal memory on a device.

I am using Irix x1 phone, when I am editing in color note or image then within a minute I get full storage and the speed of the phone gets very slow?

How the clear phone storage permanently

Move as much as you can to the SD card. Clear the cache of the color note and gallery from within applications manager each time you use those apps.

When I open my mobile phone there's a message "not enough storage to run Viber" below the blue line is another message " try clearing storage space from your device and reopen Viber"

I tried to get rid of this message first so that I can try clearing the storage space. It keeps on appearing and preventing me from trying. What shall I do?

Reboot the phone and then go into your Applications Manager and clear the cache and data of all apps. Then put your phone into Recovery and choose Wipe Cache Partition. You can then try to load up Viber and should not see the message.

Rooted phone with Custom ROM not allowing recovery reboot?

I'm trying to completely wipe the phone and install the factory ROM back onto it, but it is giving me some trouble.

First, check to see if your battery is charged to above 85%. Then connect the phone to the PC and see if you can put it into Recovery using ADB tools or whatever you used to initially put on the Custom ROM.

My Samsung Galaxy 5S has a message please tap of Storage then tap on Clear cache in the center of the screen?

I cannot power on or off or enter my password. I can adjust the volume of the sound and if I get a pop-up from an app - my Bible app - I can hit it and it will not show on the screen, but I can hear the music in the background. I have hit the back button - lower right corner and it will flip back one screen. I have hit the button in the lower left to try to close out anything that is open, but nothing happens. How do I get my phone to allow me to access it and use it? I did not see anything that covered the fact that I cannot access the phone at all by putting in my passcode. I have tried: Hitting the back button, trying to shut it off, tried to close other screens but cannot get passed the 'please tap on storage' sign. I think it was caused by: Had the phone in my pocket then got a call and tried to answer the call but then the screen posted this message
