I have a Wildfire S for a couple of weeks while my actual phone is off for repair. I can't use the camera or anything like that because it just says "Insert SD Card". If I look at the storage I can see there is plenty available.

I don't want to buy an SD card just for this temporary phone - my Galaxy S2 has never had this problem.

Can I use the ample internal storage available or will I have to shell out?

You need to setup the camera to save the photos on the internal storage. It's probably set for external SD card, which is not available. – Alex Dumitru May 23 '13 at 18:15

The Wildfire S only has 512MB of internal flash. None of this austere allotment is allocated to a user storage partition like is done on the Galaxy S2, S3, etc.
