What can I do to manage my phone's internal storage?

I have the HTC Status, and love it! But lately I'm getting "Internal memory low" messages when I try to open or download something in my messages. It tells me to go to the "settings" tab and make space. I don't have many Apps on it, the biggest I believe is the FB App-but it's the so called "FB Phone" so why am I still having issues? I uninstall and delete data and try to move things to the sd-card and empty inboxes all the time and it just moves a few MB and leaves me alone. It gets bad sometimes, where it won't let me even ope and read a text even if there aren't any pics to load. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The sdcard is not included with internal memory. What it is actually complaining about is the location where the data and apps are stored (/data & /data/data) and could also include the cache (/cache). I have been saying for a while that more space needs to be allocated for these locations.

I have to go through and remove some apps some times, and even go to apps like Google+ and "clear data". Google+ is actually a good example of a data hog. I had to clear it today. Google+ was using 42MB of storage.

The best thing that I can suggest is to clear the data on apps that are "hogs" or remove apps that you don't use.
