iOS 6 memory problem

My iPhone is now unable to take pictures and even to scan a QR code BBC its memory is obviously full, although I have already CLEARED ALL PICTURES AND RECORDED FILES. What else in the world am I supposed to do now?

Why 'obviously'? What makes you think so?

I can't take pictures or scan QR codes, like I said.

I think 3 things:

In reply to: what do you think?

1. You don't need to store anything to scan a QR code, so it's unlikely to be related to having not enough space to store something.
2. Since the common factor of taking pictures and scanning QR codes is the camera, the camera is broken.
3. Find a repair shop and have it repaired. Or find Apple and have it repaired if you still have warranty.

Whenever I wanna do either of these two a message will pop up saying that memory's limited, thus the task can not be done.

Re: memory

In reply to: THAT'S NOT THE CASE

There are 2 kinds of memory in a phone, just like as in a PC. The one is the RAM (4 GB here), the other comparable to the SSD (or HDD) for storage. Deleting files, like you did, releases storage space. To release RAM, run less apps at the same time. So it makes sense that all those deletions didn't make any difference.

For iOS devices we have a dedicated forum:
I think it's better to post there. Be sure to be clear about the issue, and give the full and litteral text of the error message. And that probably isn't "Memory's limited, thus the task can't be done."
