I am not rooted and have tried all separate solutions for these in different posts, but to no avail. The only thing I haven't tried is a factory reset.
I've got some issues with my phone:
1. I can't download apps off Google Play because it says 'insufficient storage available' even though I have got a 16gb microSD card with about 10gb left. however my internal storage is 11mb. I don't know if this has anything to do with it but I am also trying to download apps as low as 2mb?
2. I keep getting the 'Unfortunately, [app name] has stopped' message a lot. This seems to be when I am not on the app itself but on the home screen or other apps, however YouTube seems to crash sometimes.
3. Sometimes when downloading apps it goes to the 'Downloading' screen but doesn't get to the percentage?
Thanks for any answers,
Hello and welcome to Android Forums, terr. It sounds to me like you've got a clogged up internal and external memory issue. Sometimes that happens when the existing apps and widgets in that came with the device are left in their stock configurations, which often allows for updating at frequent intervals. Apps/widgets such as weather and social networking and Gmail and others.
Go into all that you can find and clear cache and even data on those you don't use. Reboot then configure each suspect app/widget to update on demand (manually) rather than at some interval.
That should clear things up and also speed things up a bit.
One last thing, include the Google Play Store app in your cleaning of cache, but not data of course.
