Ok, Dumb Blonde alert again here, lol
I keep getting update options, some I would like to take and some I dont, but a few times now my phone has said that it is runnning out of internel memory and I need to clear some stuff out in order to take the update, so I go ahead and get rid of the apps i dont really need etc and that allows me to get the update.
BUT, a few times now I have not been able to get rid of any updates as it says theres none to get rid of, it also says move to SD card which is 4GB in size and already has a couple of things on it, so the SD card is fine, but when I select to move apps to SD card it says no apps available, hmmmm ?
I have went ahead and factory reset my phone now and I would love to know how to set this up so that when I install all apps and my photos and videos etc they all go onto the SD card rather than the phones internal storage as this is getting to be a real pain in the neck every now and again having to do a factory reset.
I would like to think there is a way to do this, is there ?
If people can help me i shall give everyone kudos as I always do.
A little step by step guide would be great as I have tried to figure it out many times and just cant see how to.
Thanks guys and girls x
You should note that when you did a factory reset you will have removed updates to system apps. This will have released a lot of internal memory but you will probably want to update them again and system apps won't move to SD (unless you root your phone).
You will also have cleared out any caches that were taking up memory. This caches can grow large over time but you can purge them by just going into Manage Apps and deleting the cache.
Some apps that create large caches are Facebook and Web Browsers.
Try apps2sd from Google Play
to back up the app2sd app I can offer the following.... today I updated the app2sd app and it managed to move a further 4 apps from my phone memory giving me another 3.2Mb to play with... depending on the number of apps you have this recent update could make quite a difference to the storage on the phone itself...
as others have said tho, not every app can be moved, so you will need to download them again after a factory reset... if you paid for them it shouldn't be an issue as yr google account knows this & should let you download them again.
thanks peeps, but why have a 4GB SD card and you cant even use it ?
that doesnt sound logical, does it ?
I mean, the apps that need to be on the internal memory, i can undrstand that and that isnt a problem, but why not an option to save whatever else to the SD card ?
I'm 99% sure the photos and videos already go onto the sd card as i have checked the card on my pc, so at a guess thats where there are saved, its just all the other stuff that doesnt seem to go on the sd card for some strange reason which is crazy.
Might as well not even have an sd card at all really in that case then !
