    Default How to store data on SD card

    I'm using a Blu Tank 4.5 running Android 4.1.1

    Everything (apps, email, txts, etc) all file to the internal phone memory even though, on the settings page,
    (Settings/Storage/Phone Storage) I have highlighted the SD Card button.
    The SD card is recognised by the phone and reports 29.57 GB available.
    I want data to file to the SD card.
    Can someone tell me what I've missed.
    Thanks

    Welcome to the forums!

    Apps can't be moved to your SD Card. That is due to restrictions in Android OS. They used to be moved in 2.3, but no longer. Apps take longer to load from an SD card than internal memory. You can have pictures, videos, audio, and a few other types of files, just can't move those core apps like SMS or anything like that.
