    When ever I try to open settings I get the message. "unfortunately settings has stopped" I also get this message about Gallery even when Im not trying to open gallery. May have others but Im so irritated I miss what they are.
    My phone upgraded about a week ago and seemed to stop in the middle of upgrade. Hasn't functioned properly since.
    Im at the point of throwing it out a window, Have taken the battery out,, SD card out ect.. Im not a tech type person. .
    Any help will be very appreciated.

    Welcome to Android Central.

    I occasionally get Settings has stopped but for a very short period.

    You can do the same as above in Recovery Mode with power off.
    I'm not sure it helps much but here it is:
    Power + Volume Up + Home key - Recovery screen (Green Android - blue list) scroll down to Wipe Cache Partition with Volume key - select with Power key' reboot when highlighted.
    Very safe to do, and recommended to do every so often. If you accidentally select Wipe Data/Factory Reset there are further safeguards.
