Hi Phil thanks for your reply :).
The phone is still on the Canonical OTA 15. I intend to re flash it to Ubports later on, however since the issues I got with it now, that later on may be sooner than planned. Then again I got a LUG meeting next week anyway, and might be nice to show at least someone there my phone again, but running a Ubports image instead. I know going to look rather similar currently.
By the looks of it your from the UK, well despite also being from the UK, England, I think the original message wasn't worded that well in parts of it.
I now have this on the phone, with one of them being wrong, (each one has its own icon as well, but those are ok I think,), in fact I'll try to put that in bold:
Notifications Rotation keyboard layout Files Location Bluetooth indicater-network Sound Battery Time & Date System
indiicater-network shouldn't say that, and also should have the wifi networks that are availalbe allowing me to connect and disconnect etc, but instead its now blank. Also if I go into system settings and go to Wifi it only has the previous networks option now, where as I think before would have allowed me to connect or disconnect in there, but can get a few detials for the network such as last connected.
I ran out of space since had various videos on the phone, taken lots of those off onto computer now, and still these issues, but I thought maybe that had caused the issue this time some how, since kept on having a message up saying was on 0 percent free space before that.
How do I back up texts thats my other question! I want to keep all the text messages and in a easy way. I want to transfer them to a computer even I guess, but where I can actually read them if possible? Or have on a computer as well if possible like that?
I don't care about saved app settings, for apps in general, or even the browser as in bookmarks etc.. Once I have the things I want off the phone, I think yes re flash. Seems a little risky too me just following the guide in case something goes wrong, but I haven't properly backed up the contents of a phone and ,re flashed a phone before as I mentioned.
