You can get apps for it, yes.

You will need a Google account, i.e. gmail. Then register your phone to your account.

You can go to the Play Store on the phone, or from your computer. By using your computer, the apps you select will be "sent" to your phone. Use WiFi for this as a way to speed up the process of downloading.

This phone is compatible with most of the apps you will find on Google Play.

Yes. Go on your home computer and on your search page type in the name of your phone and model number. You will get several sites to choose from. ebay will also show up and there are several hundred kinds to choose from. The price range is from around five to about eight bucks. It will come in different colors. They will have the two piece one to protect the screen and the back and also in one piece. Some will be made out of hard rubber, and others in soft rubber and carbon fiber. I ordered myself some today. Even offers free shipping. There are so many to choose from, you will have trouble deciding on which one you want! From camo, clear, red, pink, yellow, purple. It is endless! I hope this helps.

That is a nag screen when the phone gets to around 20mb of free space. This phone does not have a lot of internal storage to begin with.

Try moving what you can to the sdcard. If you still encounter that message, you will probably need to uninstalled an app or two.

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.
