Uninstall unused applications.
Virgin Mobile recommends that you uninstall unused applications when possible. It helps free up internal memory and can improve device performance.

Move applications to the memory card.
By default, your Samsung Galaxy S III 4G LTE saves all applications to internal memory. To free up internal memory, you can move some applications to the memory card.
Note: Be sure your memory card has enough space to handle the transfer. You can also consider switching to a higher capacity memory card.
Clear application cache.
Each application has a cache of temporary files that may be taking up memory.
Try clearing the application cache from your larger applications to free up space.
Continue to clear the cache on the rest of your apps.
You may not be able to clear the cache for every application.
Rarely, an application may not function as expected afterward.
Try clearing your application cache first and test to see if that resolves your issue.
Perform a soft reset.
A soft reset deletes any temporary files and can potentially free up internal memory.
Note: To optimize device performance, be sure your Samsung Galaxy S III 4G LTE is running the most recent device software. Check for software updates.
