S5 Unfortunately, Samsung Accessory Service Has Stopped

Problem: I downloaded a system update the other day and now whenever I click a video or open an app, I get the error message “Unfortunately, Samsung Accessory Service has stopped. This also happens when I change the volume. The app market says my phone is not compatible with Samsung accessory service and I don’t have anything by that name on my phone. I tried resetting it and removing recently added apps, to no avail. This message pops up 2 or 3 times at a time. Thanks.

Solution: Do you have the Samsung Gear app installed in your phone? If you do try to disable this app then check if the issue occurs. If it doesn’t then you need to uninstall the updates to this app then update it again. If the issue still occurs even if the Samsung Gear app is disabled then follow the troubleshooting steps listed below. Move to the next step if the issue still occurs.

S5 TypeApp Mail Uses Too Much Storage Space

Problem: I noticed when I looked under my settings in management that TypeApp mail has half of a gigabyte in data stored on my phone. Is there some way I can send some of this to my SD card without losing my present emails? In other words I wouldn’t mind transferring over emails that are over two months old but not the ones that are presently of importance. Please help thank you

Solution: You can try to check if this is possible by going to the application manager of your device then clicking on TypeApp mail. If the option for “ move to SD card” is not greyed out then you will be able to free up some internal storage space by moving the data of the app to the microSD card.
