Help my memory was filling up. So I deleted apps. Pictures. Cashes.
Under close inspection it was my contacts usins7Gb.
Far more than anything else. Started deleting contacts, but still around 7gbs!!!
Tried coping contacts to sim,External storage, Google, but still can't get the 7Gb figure down! !!
Anyone help? Or do I need a new phone?

Thanks for the helpful reply. But my contacts memory usage went up to 9gb! I was shedding and unstalling apps left right and centre! But still memory ran out . Could not even get to gallery to post screen shot!
I then deleted all contacts. Remembering I've moved to sim and micro sd.
Lost 9gb! Re imported contacts from micro sd. To Gmail account. Now only a few mb !!! Must have been some sort of glitch. Boy that was scary!!!
