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. Commented May 23, 2013 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.
