I’ve also found that you can fix the insufficient space available on the device error by going to Settings, clicking on Storage and changing the “Default storage location” to the SD card.

You can also alleviate the insufficient space issue by clicking on Apps (from the same view), then clicking on each app from top to bottom (they’re ordered by ones that use the most space), then clicking “Clear data” for each app on the device. Of course, it’s going to fill up again over time, but this will help clear some space to get you by.

Obviously uninstalling unused apps will also make more space available on the device, too.

Addendum: It seems clicking on the apps, I now have the option to move some of them to the SD card (I haven’t jail broken my phone), which saves lots of space and prevents the issue of space availability creeping up as the applications use more memory.
