comment How to install app in playstore without Google playstore in android emulator
"These" is a link to an image that doesn't seem to load on my end. I'm running Android-x86 in VirtualBox on my Ubuntu machine, no issues with using Playstore, F-Droid, or Aptoide to install apps. Maybe you want to try that?

I've just fixed up your post (note you can always edit it to correct it or add additional details). I don't know how to fix the technical issue with your device, but if you hurry up calling your carrier, he should be able to give you a list of calls received (usually including missed ones). Even if he might raise a fee for that, I bet you'll find that worth it!

Welcome to Android Enthusiasts! Link-only answers are frowned upon all over SE. Please edit your post and add a few more details, including the name of the tool (or if the link dies, your post will be pretty useless – which would be a pity, as this "Anki" tool seems to be well tailored for the OP's issue). For further hints, please see: How do I write a good answer.

We will need much more information to give good recommendations here. Please edit your question and include at least: What exact steps lead to the current situation, what exact steps have you tried to reboot your device. Also check and update the tags you've used to match your issue.

comment Enable Wi-Fi tethering via Bluetooth?
I don't know about any way doing that via Bluetooth. But would an alternative using NFC be acceptable, too? You didn't name your device, so I cannot tell if it supports NFC. Another option I could name would be "location aware", i.e. enabling WiFi whenever you're in a certain location, and disabling it when you leave it. Or similarly acting whenever another Bluetooth device is in reach (or gets out of reach).

You didn't say where there are 825 MB free. I bet it's on your SD card (internal or external), but this error is about device storage only. See e.g. “Insufficient storage” when trying to install new app, Google Play: Error downloading app - insufficient space, and our insufficient-memory tag-wiki.

comment Accidently Android Window Files Deleted From Me On My Motorola Photon 4g
You forgot the paragraphs and proper capitalization with your edit, I've done that for you. While a locked bootloader prevents installation of custom ROMs, it doesn't prevent flashing stock ROMs. Not being able to boot into recovery rather means you broke that, too: no manufacturer prevents entering recovery-mode, though stock-recovery is pretty limited compared to custom recoveries. You will need to flash a stock ROM with the proper flash tools of your manufacturer. A search for "flash sbf motorola" should pop up relevant results.
