No Command problem

My HTC Desire 320 (prepaid) has starting to give me problems for no reason. When I restart it, it gives me the Android is upgrading... apps setup message, and then I receive a bunch of Setup Wizard has stopped, or Facebook has stopped. These errors won't stopped. I tried going into Recovery mode and wiping Cache or wiping/resetting to Factory Defaults, same thing happens. I had just renewed my contract, and now this happens.
Any suggestions on how to get this back up and running?

What do you mean by, " just renewed my contract. "

Sorry, I meant I had just topped up my account for another month.

Is your phone connected to the Internet through your home Wi-Fi connection? A reset is gong to potentially leave a lot of programs needing updates. Without an Internet connection, they will fail to complete.

yes, well I assume so, but I'm not sure it has the chance to connect to Wifi, because as soon as it boots up, it says Android Upgrading... then 10 secs after I get a bunch of Unfortunately, "application" has stopped...

The HTC Desire 320 is limited in terms of storage space and RAM. If you're doing an automatic restore through Google, it's possible that the number of apps you're trying to re-install exceeds the internal storage capacity of your phone. In that case, it's best to manually install apps one by one, while periodically checking how much internal storage space you have left.

Keep in mind that although the phone lists as having 8 GB of internal storage, up to two or more gigabytes of storage is reserved for the Android operating system, (KitKat 4.4.2).

If you have an SD card installed, try moving photos, videos and music to the card to free up internal storage. System apps and most user downloadable apps cannot be moved to the SD card. The HTC Desire 320 will accept a 32 GB SD card.

It has no SD card, I wiped to factory default countless times, wiped the cache, I almost threw the kitchen sink at it... haha. But every time I shut it down, and boot it back up, I still get that Android upgrading, setting up apps.... and then the Unfortunately loops.... I was almost at the point of reloading the ROM into it, but that would be a last resort.

I made a slight error, Denis. The HTC Desire 320 only has 4 GB of internal storage, with roughly 1.95 GB of usable internal storage and 512 MB of RAM. This would explain why you're having so many problems with this phone. I think it's time for an upgrade. The 16 GB Moto G Play will run all your apps, has expandable storage, (SD card up to 128 GB), it'll have the latest version of Android and gives you 2 GB of RAM. You should be able to buy it outright and put it on prepaid.

If I get another prepaid phone, can I just put my current sim into it, so that I have the same phone number and resume my monthly usage, or do I need to start a new plan?

You can keep your current plan and same phone number. Some phones take smaller size SIM cards (nanoSIM). The Moto G Play takes the same size SIM card as your HTC Desire 320. So yes, you can just put the SIM card you have now into the Moto G Play and resume your monthly usage.
