Question

Just got My phone last month and it's been restored. Why does it say memory full every time I try downloading an app?

I keep cache empty and calls and messaging empty as well. This is aggravating. My Brother no longer has the book to help me.

Since the phone itself may not have that much internal memory to begin with, you may have to move some things to the microSD card. The phone, according to the specification sheets I've seen should have a 2GB miroSD card included.

Here is a URL that will give you a generic user manual for the Ascend Y (copy-and-paste ...in a PDF file):

http://www.cellphones.ca/upload/manuals/huawei-m866-manual.pdf

It will give you instructions on how to move things to the microSD card as well as how to reset the phone to its factory settings if you have to resort to that.

Beware straight talk android phones. Theese phones will only work with a $45 unlimited card which is fine but they falsely advertise it as unlimited which it is not. I had the phone only 4 months. First month was no problem. second month my internet was cut off for terms and conditions vioalation for not connecting to any wifi I was in range of yet the phone would not connect to my home wifi with password entered and two feet from the router. I was cut off from the net two weeks into every month. I called company repeatedly and was transferred to a recording that hung up on me even when I asked to speak to a manager, my net was actually cut off while I was watching radar while tornado sirens sounded in my oklahoma home town while I had my son in a bathtub surrounded with stuffed toys and such. This month after buying my new "unlimited" card my net was not turned back on at all. Which was highly upsetting when sirens were going off again during my sons birthday party will many children there with no shelter nearby. I called straighttalk this mourning and I was told my speed had been reduced, which means turned off not reduced because it will not get online at all, recieve picture messages or connect to my home wifi ever again even if I buy another "unlimited"card. worse cell phone horror story of my life.

This phone will only use one of two plans. There is no international plan included. You will choose what plan to use. Those plans are these:

The $45 Unlimited Everything or the $60 Unlimited International.

The International plan does not allow you to use the phone overseas, just to call to certain countries abroad.

This happened to me when I first got my phone and I went into storage and cleared the cache and then haven't had the problem since and I have a lot more texts then I did then. I would try that if it's saying it can't get new texts because of space.

It has an auto-correct and auto-complete feature when in the "swipe" keyboard. You need to make sure suggested word in the word you want before hitting the space key or it will change it.
