Questions & Answers for Straight Talk Straight Talk Huawei Ascend Y H866C Prepaid Smartphone

Question

Where has all my MEMORY gone

The factory installed apps/ etc. take up nearly all the memory. I have a SD 8gb memory card so I send all downloaded apps there. "Memory Low" pop up on my home screen constantly. I have 58.1M free space and I'm using 106.9M and I'm using 5% of my SD Card. How can I gain most of my memory back? Apps constantly running even after I kill them. Whats Google+ do I even need it? Should I use auto/sync? Thank You

Internal memory on this phone is very weak at about 150mb. If you are installing apps to the SDcard, make sure that you do not have a double on the phone internal memory.

Another thing you can try is to remove updates to things you do not use. Google+, Books, Maps, Youtube and the like.

Auto is for auto display brightness. You can use this to help save on your battery. Sync is for your email accounts. When turned on, it will check your email at random intervals for new email. It can be a waste of battery.

This phone does not use a sim card.

Upon buying this phone...do not activate until your service is about to expire on your other phone.

This phone can only use the Unlimited Plans. You can also port your current Straight Talk number to this phone without problems.

Go to SETTINGS then to APPLICATIONS and enable UNKNOWN SOURCES.

I leave that unchecked and only turn it on when I'm ready to do a download.

Question

Why can't I send or receive picture messages?

It has a download button when I get a picture message and when i click it it says downloading, but never finishes: same with sending. Under mobile network settings I have data enabled and enable always on mobile checked so that is not the problem. It will not let me edit anything under access point names. Help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Sounds like a part of Verizon's network might be down or Straight Talk has blocked the net on your phone for violation of their Terms of Service.

Try to turn your volume up while you are in the book reading app. That should work. I keep my volume turned off on most of my apps.
