    Hello, when I bought my RAZRi (XT890), it was initialized without an inserted sdcard, then the phone created an "emulated sdcard" in the internal memory, now, when a real sdcard was inserted, the "emulated" one keeps being the default, moreover, all the apps remains in the emulated, but they appear as sdcard, so, apps like app2sdcard don't work properly.

    How can I delete the created sdcard?

    Thanks in advance.

    Does that mean that if you do a "reset to defaults" with the card installed, the apps will go to the sd card???

    Im totally confused as to what is the use of an SD card in ICS, i mean if we cant put apps there... i dont even use the camera, much less put music...

    The Razr I has 5gb of internal storage which is treated as an internal SD card but no, you cannot move apps to a 'real' SD card without rooting the phone.

    5gb should be plenty for most people to be able to download apps and the point of the 'real' SD card is for storing music/videos.

    The only time that the 5gb might not be enough is if you play games which download massive files as these files will get stored on the internal storage so you could end up running out of space.

    There are instructions around on the internet for how to root the phone and be able to swap the storage but that's above me!
