My Samsung Galaxy Y phone is keep automatically updating apps that I don't want updating. I already know how to turn off auto updates through the play store so I have and it's not doing no difference. It keeps auto updating every few hours and really starting to get on my nervous because I can't download anything because with all this stuff downloading it keeps saying I don't have enough space.
Please help me otherwise I'm selling the phone and getting a different one that if defiantly NOT an android because it's nothing but a load of rubbish.

Re: Auto Updates.
How do you know apps are auto-updating? Do you see a message in the notification bar that an app is updating? Apps don't get updated to a newer version that often, so it seems odd that your apps would be auto-updating every few hours
Another possibility is that your phone is malfunctioning. It might help to clear the system cache partition, which is where temporary system data gets stored. If there's some faulty data there, sometimes things can act strange. If you clear the cache partition, you won't lose any personal data or settings.
Follow the steps in this video, but instead of selecting "wipe data," make sure you select "wipe cache partition." Once it's done, select "Reboot system now," and see how it works.

Re: Auto Updates.
What about the questions I asked, about whether you're certain it's apps that are auto-updating to new versions, or some other process going on? As I mentioned above, apps shouldn't keep auto-updating to new versions every few hours, since new versions only come out once every few weeks to months.
