    I have got a faulty Sensation which it looks like I will be replacing with a Salsa, can I put the 8gb memory card I got with the Sensation or do I need to buy a different one and if so which?
    Apologies if you're all rolling on the floor laughing at this question too, you might guess I aint got the first clue :thinking:

    Many thanks in advance

    You can use the SD card on your new phone but before you'd format the card.

    So I'd put the card in a card reader on PC, copy the card's content to the PC, format the card and then copy the for me important files (pics, videos, docs) back to the card.

    thanks very much - an again my apologies - but what do you mean by format the card?
    Reckon it might be easier (for someone with no idea like me) to buy a new card?

    Formatting like a thumb drive or hard disk on your PC.
    All contents on the SD card will be deleted.

    Buying a bigger card, 16GB or 32GB, would be a good idea :)

    I'd format the SD card on my PC with a card reader as FAT32.

    You've to free the phone's app storage.

    Go to Settings, Apps and look at every app if it can shove a part of itself to the SD card.

    First, you might analyze your phone's storage with an app like DiskUsage.

  12. there is another way. u may want to clear the cache's of apks u regularly use IE Facebook etc. they keep a massive chunck of MB stored in caches or again, unlock the bootloader and gain upto 1gb in internal memory. something which may take an hr or so could stop you wasting your time on other ways....
