Question

Re.My Game Applications keep crashing is there any solution or do I need to return the device?

I truly don't know how to proceed. So what do I need to do remove the game apps. It seems to be happening to multiple game apps. Can you give a name of game that will not crash so I can make sure some game apps work on my phone. Would buying a larger mini sd card solve the problem. What size do I need to buy to run most if not all the 450,000 apps that are advertised to work on the phone. Please provide better information or direct me to a user manual that provides better information. Or should I return the phone? Thank you

To manage your phone Apps go to Settings and then Applications, then Manage Applications. You will also see Storage Use that can be selected as well.
If you analyze this and want to remove some applications the just select the application from the Applications list, Force Stop and Uninstall. Optionally go to Google Play like you were installing the game again and choose Uninstall.
Another option is to download an application management tool/remover from Google Play.
It is likely you have a misbehaving or conflicting app and it needs to be thrown out.

Remove the Apps. ALWAYS read the reviews from any App you download. Many have options to download updates. You do not need to keep each App updated, un-check the box under the App before downloading. A lot of Apps crash, it is not always the phone. Also, free up your memory by clearing your history each day. Hope this helps. :)

You may need to call the company, this happened to me today. I opted not to call. Had my son forward me a photo. It prompted me to downdown something on google. The first 24hours, it will take time to get to know your phone. Enjoy.

Yes, you should have 3G internet access available when you are not around WiFi.

Did you purchase the $45/month unlimited card and ACTIVATE the phone through Straight Talk? You can't just purchase the phone and expect it to have CDMA service. It will work with only WiFi, but you need to have the service to use it outside the home.

If you have activated - do you see a 3G icon in the top bar? If not, try toggling "Mobile Data" on/off from the Wireless settings in "SETTINGS"

It should be able to connect to Verizon's 3G network. Have her look in the phone settings, under Wireless & Networks. Make sure Airplane Mode is disabled, and scroll down to the bottom to Mobile Networks. Make sure that "use packet data" is checked.

Getting 'memory full' error message. FRUSTRATED! Please read details...

Getting 'memory full' error message. Bought 16 gb card to remedy but still same problem. Phone showing almost entire sd card is free but still getting 'memory full.' Phone is set to automatically install on sd card and all apps that can be on the sd card are showing that they are on the sd card. BUT like I said the card is showing as almost empty. At my wits end! Don't know what to do!

Very small memory but the phone will have to have a system factory reset. StraightTalk will have to help you do this. It also wipes the memory clean so back everything you can to your SD card.

answer 2
Open the apps and make sure that they are on the SDcard. It should say "installed on SDcard." If it does not, then click the button that says "move to storage/SDcard."

If that option is greyed out and you cannot click, not sure what else to tell you. The internal memory on this phone is pathetic. Not enough storage for anything. Once the phone gets to around 20mb of free space, you will get that nagging message.

yes you can speed dial,sorta.have this phone for 5 months.here is how i do it:hold finger on blank part of any of the screens you want to set up a speed dial,home or any of the other 4 can be used,click add shortcut after menu pops up,then click on Direct Dial or Direct Message.then click name from list..will place a icon on your screen..Direct Dial will automatically call that contact when clicked and will have a small green phone with icon.Direct Message will open texting screen for that person when clicked and will have a small chat bubble with icon.will even show the picture of person if you have one set.works better than the old pick a # 1-10 for speed dial.and the added benefit of direct texting some one.hope this helped!
