I would attach it to an email and send it that way.
From inside a new email, press the menu button (far left on bottom of phone) Add Attachment and then Gallery to select you picture you want to attach and send.

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

"Access to over 450,000 apps on Google Play" Is there not enough memory for this phone to truly use these apps or am I doing something wrong?

Nothing that you are doing. A smartphone is essentially a mini computer. Just like an actual computer things freeze. That is what is happening. You can advise the app creator by leaving them feedback on the Google Play rating system.

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. :)

Re.free up your memory by clearing your history, My Game Applications keep crashing

How do I do this? "free up your memory by clearing your history each day"

Does any of the crashing have anything to do with just using the 4gb mini sd card.

Is there a certain amount of free space I need on my mini sd card to have all the features and apps work properly?

Ihave an 8gb mini card. I have crashing issues constantly. One of the problems that I feel they have is there are to many things that can not be stord on the sd card.

The apps crashing and freezing have nothing to do with the SDcard. They are coding problems, plain and simple. Feedback to the app creator on Google Play is the best solution. Tons of apps have tons of bugs in them.

Open app listings, close any non essential programs. The more you have running, the higher the chance that the processor will not be able to keep up. You can also clear out the ram by going to the ram tab, click clear memory.

Otherwise, I am not sure what else you can do. This phone is not top of the line.

I need to know why is my internal memorie is full when I have only had the phone for one month?

I do not understand what cache is and yes I have gone to application manage. And my internal storage is really low. Now I can't get anything from play store(apps). I want to know what to do without me loosing everything?

Your internal memory is really low because the phone only has 500 mb or something ridiculous like that. Seriously - it's pathetic. Most of the apps on the Google Play store can't run off of an SD card, which compounds the problem. Basically, you either need a phone with more internal storage OR Google needs to get their act together and figure out how to update their technology to work with SD cards.
