    Hi.

    Is it possible to store personal files in the 1.5Gb of storage space on the phone and not have them stored on the SD card?

    The reason I ask is that I have some work and personal information files that are stored on the SD card (mainly financial details etc), and whilst the phone itself has a lock on it preventing unauthorised access, it is fairly easy to just remove the SD card and read the files it contains via a computer. If I can store the files actually on the phone and not the card, then they would be more secure because you would not be able to read them without first gaining access to the phone.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I can't see any way of doing it to be honest. There are a number of encryption apps on the market though, are these of any use?
