First, you must download from the market the app APPMRGIII, this will enable you to move each app to the SD card. It will be best to install and move each app one by one to free space as you go.
Second there is a confusing terminology used on this phone. To move the app to the "SD card" use the option "move to internal storage". This will move the app from the phone storage to the internal 1 gigabyte storage which is different from the sd 4 gigabytes card!
Some apps would not be allowed to be moved, so you will need to be selective.
Because the resolution of this phone does not require lots of processing power, apps load amazingly faster on it than on my LG Esteem which costed me several hundred dollars.
The battery life is amazing. It leave the phone on all night running of the battery pull with Wi-Fi and cellular radio on and the battery will be fully charged the next morning!
The phone has bluetooth and Gps hardware. I installed Sygic which is a self contained Gps program which does not need network connection to work.
Photos and videos don't look very good on the phone itself but look good on when displayed on other phones and devices.
WhatsApp would take only 1/10 of a Meg from your data to send a text message.
I found out that the phone has a switch in to turn off data transfer while maintaining cell phone connection. This is useful to avoid sending data over 3g while on wifi.
Also, I installed Spare phone app to make phone calls over wifi to any place just like a regular phone. This will safe plan minutes!
For the money this is an amazing little gem and far more value than my costly LG Esteem ($400) which I love as it works perfect, has a great resolution and hdmi port. I only wish it was could work on Trackfone service which is a great value and uses Verizon
The review about memory management was quite helpful because I had similar issues. I went crazy with apps and then had low memory notices. However, as one of my 'phonie' friends told me, I shouldn't expect much from a phone that cost me less than $50.
All this said, I think I did all right. The phone has worked flawlessly since I finally got it activated. I would recommend the phone to people who want a basic 'smart' phone without too many bells and whistles. Since I am a pay as you go phone user with Tracfone, this phone almost exceeds my needs. I don't need a music player, book reader (really?) or a handheld gaming device. My camera takes images that are fuzzy. Fortunately I don't have a use for it - not even for gratuitous selfies. The maps and browser are nice on a limited scale.
I'd give the phone 5-stars if they would make their memory management smarter and Google (Android) would allow us to remove useless apps...it almost reminds me of Windows and the applications that HAVE to be there even if you don't want them, because they are part of the operating system.
There are alot to like about this phone. I currently have a LG 840G ( which is a disabled android tracfone !) and llked the android feature since I bike, bus and shop everywhere. Here's the pro and cons simply put on this one..
small (candybar stlye) but has a decent 2.3" size screen
800mz processer is fine with it's 2.3 android (gingerbread system ) and liked the speed
plays music ( good volume and better than my ZTE Valet) and videos play fine even movies with no problem but low screen res (240x320)
3 g network with sprint or verizon in many areas
EZ setup and simple screen make it a good starter android tracfone
POOR internal memory will limit app downloads to just a few ( less than 1 gig total internal memory)
Could only get 3-4 apps on phone and even used MASTER CLEAN app to move and clear all apps
because some apps won't move to a SD CARD this is a problem with low memory phones
Lower screen res than newer phones make even cartoons a bit blurry
The final verdict.....Good basic phone without large app use but very limited with some apps but overall works well.
P.S. if you want to try apps on your computer first on internet "BLUESTACKS"..it amazing and works on PC and MAC...Jay
