    What should be stored on the phones memory and what on the SD? I have my music and pictures stored on the SD card now, but I think when you first get the phone, the default is to save everything on the phone memory.

    I ran into a problem where I wanted to backup my pictures on-line to my Lookout account, but it only sees the pictures on the phones memory.

    I also think the default is to store everything in the phone memory. So far, I only have pictures, so I changed the menu to put all pictures on my SD card. I want to save the phone memory for apps until my DInc gets its helping of Froyo.

    Open the camera, hit the menu button, look for the sprockets on the left.

    There is a tab that says phone storage change that to memory card.





    I have pictures, video's, movies, music on my SD card.


    To back up your pictures you can DL photobucket from the market. It is a free app, but you have to manually upload the pix.

    also, when backing up pix to a PC, make sure you change the USB settings to disk drive instead of charge only (as is the stock default), i changed mind to be disk drive by default without asking me, so it always goes straight to that mode when i plug in. you should get an autorun window on your PC and you can go from there.

    I have alittle over 700 apps on my media card (in .apk, not installed), a bunch of pics, and maybe 6GB of music. One of these days when I have time to play around, I'm gonna try out Apps2SD on a blank microSD for the hell of it..

    Nothing. Just so apps that don't like the internal memory would play nice (Google Earth).

    I keep most of my music on the phone memory (except those I change to ringtones) and most of my pictures are on the SD card.

    No real need at this point, app memory is stable and there's plenty of room. But 2.2 is supposed to have some new features regarding app storage, but I don't remember the details. Look up froyo features.

    Well I keep everything but my music on there. I figure thats the only thing I don't need there right now. And I don't keep much music on me because I listen to mainly podcasts and streaming music. Not to mention almost every app is written to save it's stuff to the SD card.

    I wish I could set the phone up to where it would save all the junk and data folders on the phone storage and only place media etc on the sd, but maybe in the future!

    It's called a scam IMHO. Especially considering that 16GB cards from a reputable retailer are selling for quite a bit more than that. I would steer clear, very clear of that.

    When something comes from Hong Kong, like that, with an unbelievable price, like that, it's normally a scam. They have been printing 32GB on the outside of 16GB cards for awhile now to scam people.

    But if you want to give it a try buy one and tell us how it works out

    Another thing what does this mean in the description:
    not compatible with standard microSD-enabled device/readers

    hummm...only host devices?

    what do i store on my SD card?

    nandroid backups mostly, but also some backgrounds, some pictures, a few backed up apps, and then some random files or folders from some of the apps i have installed. oh and also the two banned episodes of south park from this last season.

    i have all my music on my internal memory.
