Samsung i900 - insufficient memory when trying to take photo.

When I try to take a photo using my samsung i900, it ocassionally states that there is insufficient memory to accomplish this task and recommends that I close down other applications. Even after I close down all applications I get the same error message.

    I have synced my phone with my computer?? It now states that i have critically low memory, if the storage memory is not increased it will affect other applications. This pops up on my screeen every 5 mins or so

    Yep, same thing here. Brand new i900, stated "insufficient memory" after I transferred 4 mp3's. After I shifted to the memory card for storage (via PC!) I could at least recieve sms... Now I got "insufficient memory" when I try to open the camera...

    So it seems obvious that there is a file allocation mishap. Loads of people report this, but Samsung is doing nothing about it. Pityful owners handbook and so on...

    DO NOT DO THIS!!!!

    Resetting the phone loses everything! After resetting the phone has even less memory available and reaches the error much sooner.

The phone has 3 memory's

My device about 90MB which is where everything gets stored by default and because it's the smaller memory it will easily get full.
My storage about 8 GB (handset internal memory)
Storage card about 8GB depending on your contract (Memory card)

You will need to move items from the "My devices" memory to either the "My storage" or " Storage card"
Start
Programs
File explorer
My device
My documents
Tap and hold on a file
Select cut
Go to my storage or storage card which ever desired memory
Tap and hold paste.

Try change default storage for pictures and video.... So that they no longer saved under My devices memory.

Open camera as you about to take a picture tap on the tool icon
tap on the tool
change default storage to my storage or storage card

Also change default storage for files transferred via bluetooth...

Start
Settings
Connections
Bluetooth
Tap on FTP tab
tap on the bar with 3 dots
select desired default storage

Works like a charm!

I had the exact same problem, to fix move all fotos, videos etc from the internal memory to the external memory (had to use PC don't know how to do it on the phone), switch off the phone, remove the battery, sim card, and external memory for about 10 minutes then re-install all, and switch on phone. It seems to have worked for me.

Freezing regularly and needs a reboot


the main pssible cause of this problem is because you have a lack of memory..try deleting unwanted programs,photos or even music..if still that does not solve the problem then it could be a virus so try installing an anti-virus on the phone and run a scan..
