Re: low storage memory
Also check that you don't have any photos or music or videos on the phone that you don't need. These take up a lot of space on the phone. The photos and videos can be deleted from the pictures and videos application, and the music can be deleted from the File Explorer application. All of these files should be found in My Documents Folder.

Do you use your phone to browse the internet? if so, go to internet explorer -> options -> memory. and let it delete all temporary internet files. That should free a lot of internal storage.
Turning your phone off and on again can also help to delete temporary files to make room in your storage memory.
Hi. Your device gives this problem because its internal storage memory is low, low enough that Windows starts to lack some space. Correcting this issue is simple, you can first transfer some of your personal data (pictures, music, etc..) from your internal memory to your SD Card. (You can do this process by the help of File Explorer, and also that can be found in the Start Menu.) If this is not enough, you can uninstall some of the old programs that you don't use from your internal memory (You can press Start Menu -> Settings -> Add/Remove Programs). At the end, you can check how much space you have on your device (both internal and external card) by tapping Settings -> Memory. I think the empty space in internal memory should be at least larger than 3MB for normal usage. Hope this helps.
Use clearing programs (for example SKTools) for delete internet files. And do not install all the programs to my device install them to my storage to save memory. Set the browser's cache directory to use my storgare, set the camera working on my storage, delete unused wallpapers and ringtones.
two possible things
your phone memory is almost full
or ur external memory is almost full
or both of them
try to free up some space by deleting photos, mp3s and video..
hope it will solve your problem.

I found this fix on another website. After numerous calls to verizon-they had no clue-and hours of trying to figure things out I found and tried this fix and it worked!
"I have a Samsung Omnia on VZW network. I was getting the "Memory Critically Low" error too. So, I opened File Explorer and did some searching for files that could be removed etc. I found an entire cache of files here: My Device: Program Files: VZAppZone:Temp:Temp
I deleted these files using a mass delete: Menu:Edit:Select All: Menu:Delete With no ill effects as of yet.
I spent the better part of an hour testing every application on the phone, opening contacts, etc. I haven't noticed anything wrong.
Doing this freed up almost 35mb of storage!!!!! "
I had the same results. This finally solved my mem problems-no more pop up critical me low box!! It freed up over 1/2 the avail memory.
Another tip is to clear out your browsers cache files
I've had the same problem. Typically the Temp Internet Files are the culprit. Which hotrodvixen mentions, but not the others. Are you using the internet a lot or downloading files from the internet on a regular basis that may be an ongoing problem? What happens if when you get the low memory message you just clear the temp internet files, does that fix the problem (temporarily)?
For any others who need to know how to clear temp internet files:
Open Internet Explorer > Menu > Tools > Options > Memory > Delete Files
