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.

If you have gmail you can sync them and when you add your gmail account to the new phone they'll sync automatically. Otherwise you may have to enter them all one at a time.....

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. :)

It means it has a GPS satellite receiver in it but does not have a full GPS software. This does have Google navigate in it though and GPS software could be downloaded from Googe Play.
It is just not packaged as a full GPS, it's a phone!

GPS stands for global positioning system. Included with this phone is Google Maps and Navigation. Maps will give you restaurants, hotels, etc near you. Maps also assists in the Navigation part of the phone. Navigation features turn by turn directions, like you see on TomTom's and other navigation devices.

There is no extra cost to use these features.

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

If current carrier is other than Straight Talk:

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 Samsung Galaxy S Showcase

If your current carrier is Straight Talk:

1) Activate on the web with this option ticked - Transfer my Straight Talk service
2) Service days left will transfer as well as your phone number
3) See step 4 and 5 above
