You need to uninstall all the apps that you do not use. you need at least 25mb of free space to function halfway decent. If all else fails do a factory data reset in your settings. it will restore back to factory. Also turn off auto updates. only update the programs you use unless you are satisfied with them do update it. When you have done unstalling or restoring when you download and install an app move it to the memory card to save on the phone memory. this phone has very little memory to start with so you have to keep it maintained and clear your web browser cashe ofter too and keep your text messages to a min and save all the text pictures that you receive to the mem card..
I hope this helps..Its is a good basic phone but it requires maintaince.

There are 3 different type of software updates. The manacturers software update, service carrier software update, and the operating system software update. The only software specifically made for your phone is the manufacturers software. For instance a samsung galaxy on att. The samsung software is the only one made exclusive. The operating system software (android) and carrier software (att) are not meant specifically for the galaxy but a wide range of phones. When this happens there are incompatibilities that occur because the software isn't made for your phone and the update is usually a lot bigger software file then the previous version. This is the reason your phone can not update. A lot of people think updates are good for your phone, but in reality they aren't optimized and actually cause your phone to slow down if the update is for the operating system. Use the software that came orginally with your phone.

There are several states (ND, NE) missing from the State list. I downloaded the lower 49 update but still didn't resolve

Do you have enough space left inside the unit to finish the update?Possibly you ran out of space and may need to use a sd card to get all the info your missing or need into the unit.

Low on phone storage space

low phone storage is due to installing more apps that get stored on phone memory or installing more and more huge data updates for apps. You should move those apps from phone to sdcard in settings section of particular app(But some may not be movable. .that's fine).. you should uninstall updates for apps that you don't use frequently.
Hope this helps :)

My phone is so is showing does not off

Failing to operate some function like camera,gaming,internet browsing,message sending etc. might due to a memory full problem. if the phone memory free space is too low, it will not allowed any operation as what above stated.

To avoid this problem, be sure all multi-media files are stored on memory card or mass memory storage. delete unused file for saving memory space.If still the same way around, you need to format or reset your phone by going to settings then master sure to back up all important files first before doing this method cause everything will be erased. It will ask for a confirmation code then enter 0000, after entering the code it will automatically restart the phone .Your phone is now sets on original default settings.

Hoping this method helps...

221 GB Free on MyBook - Error states not enough space for backup

It may be due to the file system.  If formated as FAT32 files larger than 4gb may not transfer.  Try reformatting as NTFS to fix the problem.
