    Same problem (on Android 4.1.2). Seems iPlayer downloads are the issue, so connected my phone to my laptop and used Explorer to move them to the card, but the phone o longer knows they are there. Also changed the settings now to download to the card, but donwnloads notappearing in iPlayer... Any ideas?

    I had the same problem with suddenly getting the "storage space running down" message and impossible to d'load any new app. I read in various forums that JellyBeans 4.1.2 for Galaxy S3 does not allow transferring apps to external SD card, neither using external ringtones.

    So I did a Restore and all my previous apps automatically re-downloaded which was nice.
    HOWEVER although it re-downloaded a ringtone app, I cannot access it. All I have now are the default ringtones which are crap.

    Does anybody have a solution? Even the good old Whatsapp tone disappeared !!!

    Thanks for any help

    Do you mean you need to redownload something like Ringdroid? You can make your own ringtones with that or Ringtone Maker is a good one too. Zedge is also good for a quick new ringtone or more.
