SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Mesage "unable to use card"

SD Memory Cards have a write-protect switch to prevent image
data from being deleted. By sliding the switch to the bottom of
the card, the data will be protected. images cannot be recorded
when the card is protected. If an attempt is made to record or
delete an image with the camera, the card-locked message will
appear on the monitor.

When i try opening my applications and games it says "resource not available" and when i try opening my facebook it says "maximum amount of applications reached when i've got nothing open

where did you save your applications? you may have saved it on your memory card, if the applications are saved on your memory card, the files may have been deleted or corrupted. or if the applications are saved on your phone memory, then it may have been deleted or corrupted.
regarding your second inquiry, you may not have enough memory left, try to delete some apps, try to turn off and on your phone, remove battery and sim card. wait for a few seconds before you turn it on. then try to access some applications.

Error message - Memory card requires formating

Before suspecting the camera, I'd simply try another memory card in it. Memory cards can and do fail and often can behave inconsistently before they fail completely.

Memory card

It sounds like the lock switch on the SD card is in the wrong position. Take the card out and move the switch away from the locked position and re-install it.
