    Default LG G2 Notebook file location--where are they stored?

    I'm a former Blackberry user and got the LG G2 because of an OK experience with a Google Nexus tablet. I'm quickly beginning to regret buying this phone because comparatively, I have no control over it. . . . and the simplest tasks appear to be undoable on it.

    All I want to do at the moment is import some text files (exported Outlook Notes files) into the Notebook application. The app settings have an import/export "from internal storage" function. The only problem is that I have no idea where this "internal storage" is, as Verizon (or LG, or whoever) has this phone set up so that you can't plug it into a PC with a USB cord, open Windows Explorer, and see the actual file structure. (YES I have always been able to do this with every other device I've owned--maybe I was just lucky).

    The files do not appear anywhere in the File Manager app either. Sorry to growl but I simply do not have hours to try to find my way around this wretched thing.Perhaps if the LG G2 didn't have such a dizzying array of bloatware splattered all over it, I'd have an easier time figuring out where things are. . . .

    I appreciate any help you can offer.

    Try using ES file explorer. It's the best file manager. I have it on all of my devices. I have an older version that I like better than the newer version.
    Anything you want to do can be viewed on videos on YouTube.
    Cheers, Frank.

    I plug mine into a PC and use Windows Explorer all the time. When you plug into USB you have to choose how that connection will be used though.

    Not sure whether my issue will pertain to this, but I figure I'll give it a shot, since it's regarding files.

    I just sent a video from my iPad to my LG G2 (Sprint). The video downloaded to my "Internal Storage," and I want to delete it. I can't play the video. I get a message saying there's no "application" to play the video.

    Very annoying. I found the "Internal Storage section" on my phone, but even under "Videos," it says my storage is empty. I know the video is on my phone somewhere, because when I clicked on the email I sent myself with the video again, it told me there was already a video with the same name saved to my phone.

    How can I get into my Internal Storage to delete this video I can't seem to find?

    First, please go back and read the manual that came with the phone and then re-read it, I find that so many people really do not read it before using the phone.

    You need to download a video app from the play store, there are many good ones there.

    This phone doesn't come with a manual. There is a small pamphlet with a few basic instructions, but nothing that would be helpful with the question she posted.
