Support New LG-L38C User & First-Time Android User

I'm hoping this is in the right section. I have an LG-L38C (Walmart Smart Talk phone) and I'm running really low on internal memory.

I'd like to move some apps over from the phone's 1GB of internal memory over to the 4GB SD card. Does this mean I need root/SU access to the phone?

Is there a recommended app for this?

I'd like to do the following but I'm having a hard time finding out if it's possible. Iv'e spent about 4 hours searching and have not found answers.

Put 8gb SD card instead of 4gb that comes with the phone
Tethering app (ideally wifi and bluetooth)
Move over apps from internal memory to the SD card
Figure out what is happening with seemingly glitchy/buggy touch screen (it's like it gets stuck all the time and the phone hangs)

This is a brand new (3 days old) smart-talk phone that my GV # hasn't even fully ported over yet so I'm using just wifi and skype at the moment.

Is there a desktop management application that I can use to access the phone?

Also, I sync'd my gmail and yahoo accounts into the phone but now when I try to call from those address books the calls fail. Do I need to format the phone and start over adding contacts outside of the app contact lists??

I have a question/issue that I would like help to address please.

The back light on my LG Optimus Dynamic will not go out. No matter what setting I have on the Display Screen "Timeout" setting; it does not go out!! Never, nada, literally stays on always!! Thanks for any help.

I had the same memory issues.

1. Get this app:

2. Backup all installed files to your EXTERNAL sd card.

3. Uninstall apps you don't frequently use. You can always reinstall them in the future from the archived section of the above app.

4. Uninstall the memory hogging google play store app. You'll still be able to access the store. Go figure... I've done this on my L38C.

5. Whenever I try and download a play store app and it tells me I have insufficient memory, I uninstall a large app(s) I'm not using until I have enough memory to download the app.

6. I then move the downloaded app to internal memory. If the app can't be moved to internal memory, I uninstall it and look for a similar app which can be moved to internal memory.

7. After moving the newly downloaded app, I then reinstall the app(s) which I uninstalled in step 5, using the archived section of the App Backup and Restore app linked above.

No more memory problems.

I love my little $20 L38C !!!...

I hope this helps.
