You must be in a bad 4G area then - or your phone is defective, and Sprint will more than likely do a DHRP on it, which should replace it for no cost to you.

The reason you must do a hard reset, is simply because deleting emails or even removing the account will not *really* delete them, giving you free space. You instead need to hard reset the phone, which actually deletes the email account and the space it consumed.

So you see, you should back up your contacts to your Gmail account, text messages to SD card via an app on the Playstore, and make a list of all important apps to re-download.

Once you've done all of this, it's either in Privacy, or Storage - hit erase all data. Just make sure you pop out your SD card before you do this - just in case.

And like said, phones that are flagship models from their respective manufacturers and carriers, are more than adequate in memory these days. It was just an initial problem they never anticipated. Now they shove more memory in the phone than you can practically use.
