Unfortunately, on many cell phones that don't have very much main memory, the standard set of apps on an android phone will tend to take up the majority of the free memory. This leaves you with next to no main memory to install apps in. You'll find that many phones that have 8gb of ram suffer from this issue when they've hardly installed any apps at all. You can try installing a micro sd card to expand the memory and see if your phone will allow you to move any of the applications to the memory card to free up space in the main memory. Having to deal with this is very frustrating and, the only real solution I know of is to try to make sure that any phone you upgrade to has no less than 16gb ram, hopefully 32gb minimum and having an expansion memory chip (MicroSD card) that you can save any pictures, music & other files to ..with hopefully the ability to move some apps to the MicroSD memory as well to keep from running into the same Low Memory problem again.
Best of luck. I hope this helps some..
How to prevent low memory problems
Running fewer programs at one time can help prevent low memory problems and information loss. It's a good idea to observe which programs show signs of low memory conditions and try not to run them at the same time.
However, it's not always convenient or practical to run a limited number of programs. Signs of low memory can indicate that the computer needs more RAM to support the programs you use. Here are the recommended ways to solve or prevent low memory problems:
Increase the paging file (virtual memory) sizeWindows automatically attempts to increase the paging file size the first time your computer becomes low on memory, but you can also manually increase it up to a maximum size that is determined by the amount of RAM installed. Although increasing the paging file size can help prevent low memory problems, it can also make your programs run more slowly. Because your computer reads information from RAM much faster than from a hard disk (where the paging file is), making too much virtual memory available to programs will slow them down.
For more information, see Change the size of virtual memory.
Install more RAM
If you see signs of low memory, or if Windows warns you about a low memory problem, check the information that came with your computer or contact the computer manufacturer to determine which type of RAM is compatible with your computer, and then install more RAM. To install RAM, check the information provided by the manufacturer.
For more information, see Find out how much RAM your computer has.
Determine if a program overuses memory
If the computer becomes low on memory whenever you run certain programs, one or more of those programs might have a memory leak. To stop a memory leak, you need to close the program. To repair a memory leak, you need to check for updates for the program or contact the publisher of the software.
To determine which program is using the most memory, follow these steps:
Open Task Manager by right-clicking the taskbar, and then clicking Start Task Manager.
Click the Processes tab.
To sort programs by memory usage, click Memory (Private Working Set).
You can also check for program errors and troubleshooting information using Event Viewer.
Open Event Viewer by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, clickingAdministrative Tools, and then double-clicking Event Viewer. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
In the left pane, click Applications and Services Logs to view error events. To see a description of the problem, double-click the event. To see if troubleshooting information is available, look for a link to online Help.
phone memory should always be free... its the ram for your phone... you shoul keep all your files , applications and messages in memorycard ..... if memory in phone is low it will work slowly and you will not be able to open large sized applications in your phone
it might be that the phone on which you are sending data is low on phone memory. If not your phone is low in phone memory. phone uses the phone memory as its RAM if it is not free that it will not be able send data.
pls vote me.
