Rooting your phone allows you to move these applications — as well as various system files — to the SD card, freeing up plenty of space.
First, check whether it’s an issue on your phone: open You can see here that mine takes up 7.43MB.
Leave it overnight before worrying whether you’ve lost some information.
Once everything’s in order, check the size of Contacts Storage again. Android 2.2 (Froyo) lets you transfer applications from the internal phone storage to the SD card, and run them from there.
(This is quite advanced, so skip it unless you really need the space.) It’s possible to force applications to allow moving even if the developer has enabled that ability.
I posted the instructions for doing so in our earlier round-up, 100 Absolutely Essential Android Apps and Tips; click here to go directly to them, or search the page for “Force Applications to Permit Being Moved to the SD Card, Without Rooting”. Let’s take a closer look at what exactly is using up all that space.
