    My phone's internal storage is filled up. I bought and inserted 16gig flash card, but when I download app it is not downloading to the flashcard. Is there some kind of setting I need to change to get the app to download to the flashcard. I think I will also need that for taking videos and photos since my internal memory is full.

    Thanks to anyone who can help!

    You use the card to hold all your music, videos, pictures, etc., to free up internal storage - which is where downloads go and apps install.

    Some apps can be moved to the card after they're installed (Settings/Application manager - pick the app - Move to SD card) but most apps have to be in internal storage.
