I am not good at navigating the command line yet (big fingers on small keyboard) nor do I understand the linux folder structure to know what can be deleted safely.

	It sounds like you need to move the files stored on the device itself.
This sounds like what happened to me. Using the built in file manager,
move the personal files you've stored in /xx N810, including the
subfolders /Audio Clips, /Documents, /Games, /Images, and /Video Clips
to an external memory card. If yo use a program; like Claws mail that
stores files on your device; point it to the memory cards as well. In my
usage, the internal memory filled up quickly, producing symptoms like
yours. Good luck.
