Hi All,

my U8150 is constantly running low on internal storage...  as much as possible I do move apps to SD, and theres still heaps of room thereh - am I doing something wrong still or do I just have too many apps on the phone???

8150 has 200mb internal storage, so its not a lot and does fill rather quickly - you are best to move all the apps you can to SD card but they dont always let you - just need to be a little bit picky about the apps you install.

I only just had the low space message on my 8150 for the first time yesterday.

I never got the low storage message when I had mine but i always monitored my storage.

If you use a custom ROM then I found they give you a bit more storage space. I always found my U8150 to run considerably faster if you leave it with >50mb storage. It does mean you have to pick and choose your apps carefully.

I found the social networking apps to be the largest so I went with 3rd party apps that could be moved to the SD card.

If you are rooted and a little bit confidant, you can create a second fat32 partition on your sd card and use an app called link2sd to move apps across to that second partition. Works great and I never ran out of space using it. 

Try Vultr using this link and get us both some credit:

You can also move some of the apps from the data partition into the system partition (i.e. replace the stock ROM versions with updated versions).
