Sooner or later you will realize that your Windows Mobile phone has got less built-in memory and even if you install apps on storage card, the phone memory will be available less and less. At some point your Windows Mobile will stop installing more apps and would give a low memory alert. You will wonder, because you were installing apps on storage card. Then where all the phone memory is gone? The thing is, apps use phone memory as well. Phone memory stores cache files, temp files and lot more, just like our computer Windows OS. You have to remove all the temp files, cache files and history items and lot more to free up space in your Windows Mobile “My Device” section for more apps installations and to make your Windows Mobile work smoothly, faster and more responsive. I just tried the following methods to free up a lot of space from my Windows Mobile and now my HTC HD2 Windows Mobile is working smooth and faster. I can add more apps in it. Watch the following videos and then download app to clear memory and cache from Windows Mobile Phone.
HTC HD2 Clean Cache and History
Clearing browser temp files, cache files and history is always a good idea. Also use the ‘Task Manager’ often to monitor which apps are running in the background. Close apps that you are not using.
