LG Tribute sucking up internal storage

My phone has 4GB internal storage. Over half of it is taken up by "System Data" in the Misc files of the storage (2.51GB). At first I didn't have too many problems. I had an SD card which allowed me to take a small amount of storage off of the internal storage. It was enough that I could function as long as I was very selective about what apps I had on the phone. At some point in the process, the phone stopped working when the SD card was in. The screen would stop responding within seconds of unlocking the screen and then I would turn the screen off and back on again and it would respond to any touch. I took the SD card and the phone responded just fine. So I've been going without the SD card for a few months now. I've had to be VERY particular about my apps and in order to keep most things updated I've had to have a couple of system apps in the factory version setting with the updates uninstalled. But now in the past week the internal storage keeps getting sucked up. I can uninstall apps or updates but that only gets me back to maybe 50MB of available storage and when I go back into the storage a few hours later I'm back to having no available storage and it's not because of the cache either. I'm seeing online that a lot of people are having storage problems with LG Tributes. I also see that that phone is no longer listed on here maybe this is why? Should I go re-activate my Samsung Google Nexus? I got the new phone because that one started working really slowly and I got fed up with it. Any ideas?

Hi, Jemila:

Thanks for contacting TextNow Support!

A possible solution would be to factory reset the phone to completely clear out any downloaded data or app updates, and then disable the apps you're not using through the Apps section of your Settings menu.

We can swap your service back to your Nexus as well, if you wish. Give us a call at TextNow Support, or drop me an email at orders@textnow.com, and we can assist you.

i had the same problem. my phone kept saying it had not enough space even though there was nothing on it. i found out that Google play services had used all my storage. i went into settings, apps, clicked on google play services. clicked on clear cache and my problem was solved

Hey Dallas,

You are very right sometimes Play services does take up some unnecessary storage. Clearing out the data on the Google Play Services app may help if this is happening to you.

Let us know if you guys have any questions or concerns!
