How to Check Phone Memory


Cell phones have a startling capacity to retain information; whether it be the ring-tones you downloaded, the latest strip from your favorite comic or just the hundreds of close, personal friend's numbers you've stored in your contact list, your phone has got an elephant's memory. However, when weighing the pros and cons of downloading a large file, you might need to know how to check your phone's existing memory. Luckily, manufacturers have made this a snap.

  • Open your phone's menu, usually located under a button on the main screen titled "Menu" or "Program".

  • Locate the "Settings" sub-menu. If you cannot find one, locate the "Tools" menu instead.

  • Find an entry labeled "Memory", "Storage", or "Status", in that order. Open it.

  • Review the storage amount. Your phone's memory will be displayed, usually with a "Maximum" amount (the storage the phone has total, not free) and the unused, or "free" memory.
