all android phones (top android phones like galaxy S or similar not) have really poor internal memory. i have this acer and thats the only thing i hate of it, but that problem have all android phones. even samsung nexus S , that it saids it has 16 GB internal storage it has "only" 1 (1 GB is quite an amount of space for apps).i dont know why all android manufacturers make their phones with such poor memory, and why android apps, most of them, dont let install them into the SD card,or only can move there part of it.thats mistake of the manufacturers of course, but of the android software and its app-developers too.if they find the way to install apps directly on the SD card, no more problems with the internal storage.With symbian for example all apps can be installed directly on the SD card...and android is suposed to be better than symbian ,so... (i had a symbian before the acer)
TkYr - No, don't work in tech support or for Acer (thanks for the career advice), just trying to help you out. Is your card SD or SDHC as i have not seen any specs list it is SDHC compatable although i have seen SD up to 32GB on some reviews. I only used the 2GB SD card that came with the phone and had no problems. Hope you find the solution to your problem as the phone is good to use.
Windy, 23 Jan 2012Check card is in correctly first of course, Settings > Applications > Manage Application... moreWindy, i can clearly see you work for a tech support over the phone. Are you able to see why? Clearly I am able to insert a memory card into the hunk of crap. You have said your self not all apps can be moved to the sd card. I have exhasuted all avenues and come to the conclusion this phone is a waste of money. If you work for Acer, good on you, you can now pass this onto them. Thanks.
Check card is in correctly first of course, Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > "Select App" (not all apps move to SD card)> Move to SD card. Turn off phone, turn on phone and memory should come flooding back.
Crap phone, should of bought another for the same amount i paid. it can't move apps to the memory card. i have an 16gb card in the phone, i download 4 apps and i am out of memory. the phone keeps checking for updates to the OS. I am well sure telstra will not waste their time with updates on this. on all 3rd party apps, it will hang and then reset the app. makes the need to re-open the app again. On paper the phone had better specs than the HTC wildfire S.. the HTC shits all over this. I should of bought it instead.
Not sure on glass, i've had mine since Jan 2011 and not a mark on it but i keep it in the slip case that comes in the box. Not a mark through normal use but if you have it loose in your pocket with keys etc???
Thank u, so much.
Please tell 1 more thing, is the screen protected by gorrila glass or does it get scratched easily? In a review, i have seen that it gets scratched easily, but in the specifications it shows that it has gorrila glass.
Pritam, 15 Jan 2012Can any1 plzz say tht weather it has android 2.2 or 2.3 os????? Can we upgrade the os version???It originally came with Android 2.2, but there has since been official updates to 2.3. The latest version is 2.3.6. You can check your Android version by going into; Settings>About Phone.
If there is no update option in that menu, then you can get the latest version from the acer websites (just do a Google search for "acer liquid metal 4.000.13" (without the quotes)).

It is really a good phone, near the apple iPhone 4 with one quarter its price
Originally 2.2 but update available through Acer website to 2.3 (2.3.6 in UK). Guess later batches might have 2.3 already in but really not sure?
Settings > About phone > Android version to find which version you have.
