    • Hello IKe C,
      Clear App Cache and Data

      Go to Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage applications > Menu > Sort by size. Then open the highest memory consuming apps and either Clear cache or Clear data as desired. (Note: Clearing data will remove the app settings and data). File managers, Browser, Twitter, Gmail, Google Play music, Google search, Facebook, Messenger, Dropbox, Soundcloud, etc. are some of the storage hog apps.
