    I just got my s3 four days ago. It won't let me move any apps to my sd card. Tried using app2sd, it says my 16 gb card is emulated. How do I fix thos issue?:thinking:

    You can't move your apps to the SD on the S3...it was designed to be that way.

    You would have to root the phone and use Link2SD to put apps on the external sd :thumbup:

    I don't understand. Why is there a slot if there's no way to use it?

    Is there a store or company that roots phones?

    The card is there for storing your media like vids, music, pics. the 16gb internal memory is enough for most peoples apps tbh. Ive had the s3 over a year and still got 4gb free.
    As for a rooting service, i dont know. If you really need to root, its pretty easy for the s3 and people here would help you but youll lose your warranty :thumbup:
