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.

SOURCE: How do I move apps to SD card. Phone recognizes it but no options to move. No internal storage what so ever. Frustrated

On android phones, under app management if the app has the ability to be moved to the SD card there is an option to do so. But many apps do not offer this option, thus until they do or the phone makers gibe us more internal memory, we are very limited in how many and what apps we can load up.

SOURCE: Internal storage problem. I've moved everything I can to SD card. , up-graded my SD card also , deleted all messages and phone logs too and it still says my internal storage is low.

Welcome to the real world. The cell phone manufacturers load up the phone with all sorts of apps that you cannot delete, leaving you with very little space to load up the ones you want. Then the app writers refuse to make use of the SD card capability because it makes it harder to write the apps and have them be compatible with phones that do not have cards. Until manufacturers stop loading down the phones with useless apps no one wants and/or spends the 50 cents to double the available storage, we are all in for the same dilemma - what app must we sacrifice in order to load the new one?

I have an Android ZTE N817 phone, and I want to know how to make my Sandisk Ultra Plus microSDXC memory card (64GB) my default storage. How do I do that?


in my zte phone the phone settings menu has a category labeled storage where you can mount, unmount sd card, get information on phone memory storage and sd card card storage volume used and volume available. It also has a button to select your default storage pathway, phone or sd card. Hope this helps you.

How do i clear storage on my zte phone? I can not even update my apps


Check to see where your downloaded apps are being stored. You probably have them going to your internal phone storage. If you haven't already, get a sd card and make it your default storage. Clear/move your apps from your phones internal memory to the sd card. Hope that helps!

Can't move things to sd card


One question. Were you able to move apps to the sd card before?
When you go to settings, storage, does it show the external sd card? I want to explain something first. The sd card is an expandable storage card, but it won't store your apps. If you want to check it out just insert the old memory card in a computer and look for any apps. Smartphones usually comes equip with 2 types of storage:
1. Internal phone memory: which could range from 500mb. to 2gb. of storage. This will be by default the location where the apps would be saved.
2. Internal SD Card: this is an expand storage that is already in the smartphone. Notice that when you see an ad for the phone it usually advertise whether it is 4, 8 or 16gb. That is the internal SD storage.
The third option is the external micro sd card, which is the one you are having problem with.
In storage under settings, see if you have an option to mount the sd card, maybe it's not mounted. You can also clon or copy everything from the old sd card to the new sd card using a computer, and then try it again.
