Question Can't get files to download to sd card by default. Please help a brotha out. Pantech Flex, unrooted.

NHey guys. Could someone please help me out. I recently got the Pantech Flex, through ATT. I love the phone. My problem is I can't seem to get video, music and pictures to download to the 32 gig micro sd card by default. I can move the files there after they have downloaded to internal memory by using the San Disk app from market. Can anyone tell me how I can get the files to download there by default? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot guys.

Hi drewsky1977, and welcome to AF

How are you downloading? The default browser might not let you set the download location yourself (it doesn't on my old phone), but most 3rd party browsers will let you do that.

i have a pantech burst, and there used to be a setting in the apps section, but ever since the upgrade, that's gone and everything has to be moved manually. I wonder if it's a pantech thing or an android thing?

That could be the issue. This phone is so different than others I've had. Do I go into the settings in my browser? It seems I'm having trouble finding that as well. Most of my downloads are torrent files. The stock browser is a bit different than on my other phones I've had. I'll toy with the browser and bit more and see if that works. Thanks a lot guys.

Yes. It's odd. This phone is awesome but things are a bit different in this one. Perhaps it's a browser thing I could change the download location. Thanks

That could be it. I can always download a different browser and try changing the settings. I find it odd that this phone downloads to internal by default. First android I've had that does that. That's what I'll do. Thanks a lot.

Well ive downloaded bt browser and browser is set to download to sd card. Yet my files are still downloading to i.ternal memory. Could the browser be confused becaues half the internal memory is partisioned as internal and the other half is recognized as external? Im not certain where to go from here. I really do appreciate you guys help. I love this forum. Any more answers and help with this is greatly appreciated.

I think other Flex owners will be better able to help you so I moved your thread here.

Happy Thanksgiving.
