    Error is “insufficient memory in the phone” while upgrading from android 2.2 to android 2.3

    I have a Samsung galaxy S and I want to upgrade the android 2.2 to android 2.3. When I am trying to do it a message appears saying that there is insufficient space and I need 3000 more MB. I tried to free some memory but still nothing. My internal phone memory has 1.82 GB free space, the internal SD card has 5.52 GB free space, and the external SD card has 5.05 GB free space. any suggestions?

    Hello Guest,
    You can try to move some apps and other data from phone to the sdcard. It will work fine only when there is more than 3000 MB free phone memory. But, even if after doing that you face the same problem, then please it will be better that you get the version upgraded by the Samsung Service Centre. Thank you. Hope my suggestion works.

    Hello

    I think your internal sd card has less storage than what you are saying. The error suggests that you have low internal storage.

    I would suggest you to free some more space and check again what your actual remaining size is.

    You can however try another thing.

    As you are upgrading you must have backed up all your contents , so why dont you try a factory reset which will free up all the space in your phone memory and after that upgrade to gingerbread and restore all the backed up contents to your phone.

    Thank you
