Manage storage

 

To manage the internal storage space, follow these steps:

 

Clear storage regularly

Note: Clear storage at least once per week.

  • Check the available internal device storage (see 'View free storage space' below).

    It must be over 150 MB for your device. The Android system cannot work properly if the internal device storage is below 150 MB. If under 150 MB, use the following tips to clear more storage:
    • Delete unnecessary text messages (SMS) and picture messages (MMS).
    • Transfer pictures and media to a computer to remove them from the phone memory.
    • Clear the browser cache, cookies, or history.

Manage applications

Monitor new applications that you install.

  • If your device starts having problems after installing an application, consider uninstalling the application.
  • Consider uninstalling apps using large amounts of ROM.
    1. From the Home screen, tap Settings.
    2. Tap Settings.
    3. Tap General.
    4. Tap Usage.
    5. Tap Manage Storage.
    6. Wait for the list of applications to appear under Storage.
