SOURCE: I dont know how to

First, I need to educate you - and then caution you - about what you are attempting to do.

Let me start off by telling you that you are correct: your phone has 230 mb for internal storage. However, when Motorola manufactured the i1, they installed a 600MHz Freescale ARM 11 Processor. This processor can handle up to a 32 GB capacity micro SD memory card. This is a large capacity card and there's a reason for it.

Specifically, the processor in your phone also requires a large portion of your internal memory to be free - so it can run / perform as fast as it can. With your internal memory full, your processor will slow WAY down, and will become susceptible to freeze-ups.

As such, your phone pretty much requires you to use a PC to transfer files both, to and from your memory card. This is actually to keep you from constantly getting a Low Memory message from your internal memory being full. And, with only 230 mb of memory (which isn't much) it wouldn't take long to fill it up - and slow the processor in your phone down - with photo's and music.

To be sure, in your phone's manual on page 36 it reads: "Your music is stored on your memory card. Your phone supports removable microSD memory cards up to 32 GB capacity."
This is Motorola's way of telling you to ONLY use your memory card to store music and not your phone's internal memory.

Moreover, on page 42 of your phone's manual it reads: "You can transfer your pictures, videos, music, ringtones, and more, from your computer to your phone's memory card." Again, Motorola point is to tell its i1 customers to use their memory card and not their internal memory for storage.

I'm telling you this for a reason. Working here at FixYa, I receive request every day for assistance when a person's phone freezes up. It is almost always because they were using their phones internal memory for storage and got it too full.

You really should use a computer to transfer files both, to and from your phone's memory card and keep as much of your phones internal memory as free as possible.

Here's a link to an online manual for your phone if you would like to review the pages I've talked about. And, I hope you follow my advise.

I have a BLU Energy X phone with AT&T. It has 8GB RAM and a 32GB SD card. Why can't I move apps from RAM to SD to free up space on internal memory??


You don't appear to understand what RAM is. Random Access Memory is only used when that app is in use. When you close the app, it moves out of RAM. Ram is not a storage medium.

The SD Card on a phone is a physical storage device and generally used for storing Contacts, Photos, Video and Music.

Download a free app like 'Powerclean' which removes Cache, and cleans RAM.

Delete any Apps you no longer use.

Tablet claims to be out of memory but uninstalling apps doesn't free up any space. Even with 32GB SD card is says not enough room for new apps.


Memory in this case doesn't refer to the memory in your SD card, but in the phone or tablet itself. Biggest culprit is photos and music.

Uninstalling apps should free up space. Reboot phone after removing items to record the true memory available.

Hasn't saved anything to the memory card because his tablet won't allow him to .. It keeps saying not enough space it's a 8GB memory card


The internal memory cards of some Android devices are partitioned for app storage and installation. Some of them have partitions that are quite small such as one Gigabyte or smaller. The remainder of the storage cannot be used for apps.

If it keeps saying not enough memory space then chances are the app partition is full. The only way to free up some space is to uninstall some apps that are stored there but not being used. You can see which apps can be uninstalled in Settings > Apps and look at them one by one to see if an uninstall option is listed. Simply click *uninstall* to remove them from the app storage partition. This will free up some extra space for some new apps or for updates to older apps you still like and use.

Also some of the apps might show an option to move them to an external SD card (if your device has a slot for one and if an SD card in inserted therein). Do move any and all to the external SD card of you have that option as that will also free up that space from the internal SD card.

Says memory full put a new sd card in says thats full too cant move anything to sd card


If you look carefully, what usually occurs is that it is the internal memory that is getting full. It is very hard to fill an SD card unless you have a LOT of pictures and videos saved. Some apps are written to allow them to be moved to and run from the SD card, others allow their data to be stored there, but unfortunately, most still seem to insist that they run exclusively on internal memory. This prohibits the ability to free up internal memory and eventually results in your having to decide which apps are more important than others. Cleaning up the memory by deleting data caches helps, but until the phone manufacturers either increase internal memory or insist that apps writers take advantage of SD cards when available, this problem will continue to haunt us all.

Why Does my Phone Stop Downloading Aps or Updates and Saying Not Enough Space on my Phone despite having 14GB Free on the SD Card?


Downloads and such are not going to SD card. They can be moved to SD card later. You should move some stuff to SD card to free up memory.

I have an android LG phone kit kat version, i have files on my sd card and even internal storage that when i click on then to open it says can not find a app that can open file


Please read this site. Just to make clear what you can do with internal memory, SD cards and so on in any Android device.
Be aware the SD card is only an external device to keep your files close to the device. You can't open them and you can't run any app from it.
To open files in the internal memory, toy need to have enough free internal memory to let the app that wants to open the file can run, and some extra space. If the memory is full you need to clear memory, by moving apps or data to the SD card.

Texts not working on samsung galaxy y , storage data says full , even though it has been emptied,m no texts are coming in, also the option for moving apps to sd card is greyed out


Your phone can't use the mini SD card as internal memory. Your internal memory has to many apps, and to much data. (pictures, notes and messages) You should clear up the internal memory, by deleting apps and data. Most Samsung apps you can't delete. The modern phones already have apps, exceeding 10 Gb. So if you bought a 16 Gb phone only 5 Gb is left for you to use for apps. I'm sorry, but the SD cards should be seen as an external hard disk, not as internal memory.
If you thought I can buy a phone with less memory, because the SD cards are very cheap and will extend the internal memory, you made an error. New phones from Samsung now get more than 10 Gbyte of apps, you even can't remove. So only about 5 Gbyte is free to use for other apps and messages.
Next phone, take one with lots of internal memory, if you like to install other apps.

My straight talk phone H866C says low internal memory. Do I need to up grade my sd card?


An internal memory is different than your sd card. You can try moving some apps that you have saved on your phones internal memory to the sd card or just leave it as is and start saving new apps/contacts to the sd card rather than the internal memory. You may need to delete some programs from the internal memory to free up room, but you can always redownload and save it to the sd card instead.
