    I need help
    I was wondering if the only way you can see things that you have saved to your SD card is by hooking the phone up to a computer. I have saved multiple things to the SD card and I can't seem to find a place on the phone to retrieve them.

    Any suggestions?

    Plug your data cable to your phone and your computer. Slide down your notification area. See the USB notification? Tap that. It will ask you if you want to mount it. Mount your device. Use like you would any removable storage.

    Right, I have done that and it works but what about doing that when its not hooked up to a PC, how do I look at the files on my SD card?

    Think it depends on the app your using and whether it's designed to pull data from the SD card. Like I have a comic book viewer app and it sees my SD card fine. Same with the included PDF viewer.

    What data are you trying to get with what app?

    I downloaded some app that gives you movie ringtones and you can select the ringtone that you like and save it to your phone, I did that and it said that it was saving my ringtone to my SD card under a folder called movetones and now I can't locate it and I really don't know where to go to get it I first checked where the rest of the ringtones are and its not there.

    Have you tried a file manager app such as ASTRO or Estrongs?
