My ZTE Z837VL keeps displaying the message "Storage space running out Some system functions may not work" How do I fix this?

You have too many things installed on your phone. Try uninstalling some apps (hold down on them until you see the "uninstall" icon appear on your screen), or try erasing some pictures/videos you've taken. These are the things on your phone that will take up the most space. If you still get the message, you can also try navigating you your "downloads" folder and cleaning out some of the things in there. To do so, once again just long-press on the item and select "Delete."

If you still have the "low storage space" alert, you can always purchase a MicroSD card and insert it into the proper slot on your phone. This will allow you to keep all the files/apps you currently have on your phone. I would suggest getting a minimum of 32GB, as that is a fairly standard size and should keep the average person happy for a couple of years. If you take a LOT of videos/photos, or download a lot of apps/files, you might want to opt for a 64GB to further expand your available storage space.

Best of luck, friend!

Why this device says memory is full wont let me look at pictures or send pix texts.

Agree with previous answeree.
I know the problem, sort the mail every day.
then tell yourself that it is OK to delete this and that because you can always get it later. This what I tell myself when I get a message like you got.
just do it start spring cleaning your phone.

Phone displays low storage icon,text messages full,but there are no messages and plenty of phone storage space

Where is the spare storage ? On the phone or on the memory card?

The phone doesn't use the memory card to store messages it uses it's own internal memory storage. If you have saved items there then this may be why it's running out of space.

Help! Internal phone storage is getting low

delete most of the unused apps as they all take up space and are not really necessary

Internal phone storage space nearly full

How to Transfer Apps Pictures From Internal Storage to Micro SD Card...

The above page shows a method to move files to an SD card without you having to install an app. That should free up space. There are apps that can assist with this process but you may be so short of space that you need to move some with the above method (before you can even install another app). Note that you can actually move applications to a SD card as well as photos or books or music. Some versions of operating systems restrict access to SD cards. If you experience a difficulty, you may want to access the help and support for your particular phone model and operating system version. Check for that on the brand site.

My rant phone has a message icon on top but no new messages and it wont go away and it not a voicemail

Hi,i think the phone message memory is full and you have to delete some old messages in order to create free space in the phone memory message which will then remove the message icon,but if this problem remains it means this problem is as a result of virus which has infected your phone,

however the best solution to your problem is to flash the entire ROM(random operating memory) of the phone to get rid of the virus which will inturn remove the message icon

Nokia 6720 message icon keeps flashing

It can also indicate you have messages on your SIM that are not yet copied to your phone.

Go to messages -> Options -> SIM Messages and delete or copy these messages and the blinking icon should dissapear.

After deleting pictures I never get 40GB of memory space back

I found the same thing. Had to go to "my computer" , load up the photobank icon.

Click on the cards folder and then delete each folder.

THEN ,after clearing off the photobank, go to the desktop and empty the recycle bin. You will get the 40gigs back.

I have a flashing message icon......but my inbox, outbox and every other bok is needs to stop flashing at me.....

"Would suggest checking SIM messages, these do not appear in inbox.
1. Messaging
2. Options
3. SIM messages.
Clear out the messages.
These messages are stored on your SIM card, which does not have a lot of space.


Messages full symbol will not go away!

try turning your phone on and off again, hopefully, it might work! it could also be that you have unsent messages in your outbox. goodluck if not, you should probably taked it back.
