    I came from a Storm to an Incredible and I love it, but one thing that bothers me is that I can't find a way to move pictures/files off of the phone memory onto the SD card. This seems like something that has to be built into the OS somewhere, but maybe its just buried in some sort of settings somewhere? I would appreciate it if someone could help me out!

    There are a couple ways you can do this:

    1) Download and install a file manager from the market (i.e., Astro) and use it to move/copy files.

    2) When connected to a PC/Mac, 2 external disk drives will display. You can then move/copy files between the 2.

    Here's our tutorial on manually moving files. Note that you may need to install HTC Sync to get your computer to recognize the phone. (Yeah. Sucks.)

    Also give doubletwist a try.

    Nope. Your computer see's the Incredible as an external USB drive automagically.

    I had Astro installed but I still don't think it does what I want it to. The "Move" button is always faded and wont let me use it.

    Also, when saving a picture from an mms for example, is there any way to dictate what file it goes to instead of it saving to a "downloads" or "other" folder, I've had both those happen but I just want them in the folders where they belong.

    1.) What is it you're trying to move, and from where to where?

    2.) Open messages>menu>settings>attachment storage.

    I have an EVO and it WILL NOT let me get in the phone as USB drive. What Im trying to do is save personally created ringtones and notification sounds to the phone itself. Now it lets me see the SD card and that great but I want the files in the phone itself that way theres no lag time to mount the SD card when restarting the phone.
