Internal storage (ROM): T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide

Learn how to view free space and free up storage on the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide.





Manage storage


To manage the internal storage space, follow these steps:


Clear the storage at least once a week:

Note: Refer to your user manual for instructions.


  • Delete unnecessary text messages (SMS) and picture messages (MMS).
  • Transfer pictures and media to a computer, and remove it from the phone memory.
  • Clear the browser cache, cookies, or history.
  • Clear Facebook app cache.
  • Manage applications. See section below.
  • Delete the call logs.


Set the device to manage some memory

Prevent the storage from being filled as quickly:


  • Set the text message limit to delete messages automatically.
    Note: The default is 200 text and 20 picture messages. You may use this setting to start with, and decrease it if you continue to have problems.
  • Change the setting for email synchronization to download only for the past three days.


Manage applications

Keep managing any applications that you install to keep the system running properly:


  • If you notice the device having some problems and you installed apps in the past few days, then uninstall all the new apps. Most device problems are actually caused by app errors.
  • View other applications that are using storage or memory:
    1. When in Manage Applications settings, press Menu. Some devices may require you select All first to view all applications.
    2. Touch Sort by size.
    3. For apps that take up a lot of space, clear the application cache and data.
    4. For apps that continue to use a lot of your storage space, uninstall them by touching the app name, then Uninstall.
  • Move some apps to the SD card or storage partition.
    Note: Do not move: live wallpaper, widget apps, apps that use the notification bar, or apps that synchronize online. Some apps may not work correctly from SD card. Move unstable apps back to internal memory or upgrade to a new SD card (class 6 or above).


For continuing problems

If storage issues continue after all steps above are complete, troubleshoot with Manage internal memory (RAM) on Android.
