I have the exact problem. The only solution I have found is to go to settings, applications, manage applications, and then select each application you have installed and clear data on each one. This is a pain, but I have found no other way to fix it. I have to do this at least twice a week to get rid of the error.
I am hoping someone else comes up with a better solution. I have had this phone for 3 months and am very disapointed with it. Mine is very slow like yours too. Hope they are just not junk phones.
OK so I dont want to do a factory reset. I will loose all the stuff i want to keep on my phone plus that has already been done and it did not work. How do I delete the game demos and **** that were on the phone when I got it. I dont want 2 navigation programs and i dont want the tmobile mall but I cant remove them!!!! UUUGGHH I think im going to the store and ask for a new different phone not a refurbished of the same!!! I am fed up!!

I had my Gravity Smart for about 10 days and was already getting the dreaded memory full warnings. Can't delete the bloatwear apps on the phone that I don't use, and had about 12 megs of memory left, so the only solution was to start deleting the few apps I had added... Ridiculous in my opinion, so I returned the phone today to T mobile and got a Samsung Exhibit ll which was aboout $100 more than the Gravity Smart but comes with a faster processor, bigger screen, and 4 Gigs of internal memory. In addition, I added another 4 gigs of memory for about $17. Since I am going to have the phone for 2 years, I didn't want to have to be careful about adding apps and having problems with memory.
Aprezagurl, I also have had the exact same problems and have been on the search for a solution. T-Mobile has been of no help in the matter as they're new to the problem. Try going to this forum link http://androidforums.com/samsung-gravity-smart/461593-phone-says-storage-full-when-its-not.html and I hope that it helps you. I've tried it and it has given me some "minimal" relief. I'm still working with it and will try to update as necessary.
The main key to "unlocking" your phone is to "root" your phone. What this means is to become the administrator on your phone so that you have acess to moving and removing files. So far, I've only been able to move some files over to the SD card and that has given me some memory space relief. The process is a little tricky and you should make sure that you follow the directions and it will work out. Like I stated before, it took me a while to get it to the point but once I got there I felt much better.
Good Luck to you.

here is what i do go to app pack:manage applications- delete all updates you dont need since it wont let you delete them entirely then once that is done search for them in the Play Store menu and deselect the auto updates for them. make sure the Maps app is one of the ones you do this to that one can be huge
