Re: vanishing phone memory

You should have the option to save your messages to memory card as well which could save a lot of space on the phone, also check your camera is aving photo's to memory card and not C phone memory !

Re: vanishing phone memory

It's not your internet settings as they don't affect memory, it's the cookies and saved searches, passwords etc that build up as you use the browser, every so often you need to clear your privacy data which will give you some space back, in browser select options, clear privacy data, clear all !

another thing, sometime a whole mb disappear in few hours though I haven't been online.
If i get an app like x-plore will it help? I had it but I deleted it 'coz. I didn't know which files to delete. Please tell what shud i delete
3rd: I have tried 'factory setting' 7370 code twice 1st time it installed games from memory but second time it said 'failed to install all data' why?. What I need to know is, is it harmful for phone to try the factory setting code more than once or twice?
