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.

This phone does not include any service time. Service cards must be purchased separately.

The activation card is only a red card with the phone serial number on it.

Yes, you can if you wanted to. Your current number must be an active number. Here are the steps to take.

1) Call your current provider and get your account and pin numbers. This includes Net10 and Tracfone services. These are required to port your number to Straight Talk.
2) Activate this phone on the Straight Talk website. Click Activate, then transfer number. Put the dot in Activate my Straight Talk Service with a number from another company. Be sure to use the exact same account information(name, address, etc).
3) You will need a service card for activation. This can be done at activation. This phone will only use the $45 Unlimited or the $60 International Unlimited.
4) After all activation steps have been completed you will usually have a full functioning phone within an hour or two 99% of the time
5) Enjoy your new Huawei Ascend Y

This phone has a pretty loud ring. It is much louder than my last phone. It has a few traditional rings as well as ringtones. You can also get more ringtones than those that come with the phone. The volume of hearing while on a call is good as well.

Neither of the phones are that great in the storage areas.

No it can't.

Straight Talk terms of service does not allow hot spot/tethering to other devices.

If you need those options, please consult with a phone provider in your area and choose the appropriate contact plan that fits your needs and budget.
