Memory card as default storage media

Hello,

 

I just bought Nokia Asha 302. I want to make default storage to memory card, so that all SMS, pictures, songs, contacts, applications and games can be stored on memory card and phone memory will be free for use all the time. Can you please advise me how to do that?

 

Thank You!

 

Regards,

Re: Memory card as default storage media

In Nokia Suite -->Tools-->Options-->My Phone-->Preferred Memory.. Set to Memory Card ..This should be for the Pictures and Songs..

In your phone..log-in to Nokia Store and then in Options-->Account-->Settings-->Installation Preferencs ...Select Memory Card ..This should be for downloaded Applications, Games, songs, etc. But, keep in mind that some applications must be installed in Phone memory for proper functioning.

For SMS check under message settings if you have the option to select Memory Card (not sure if its available for your device)

As for contacts, don't think that can be done. Its either on SIMor in Phone memory.

Re: Memory card as default storage media

If you don't need whatsapp then you have to delete it or delete all the configuration settings in the settings. Deleting all the configuration settings makes the phone not to connect to internet for all apps!

There should not be any shortcuts on the memory card. If you want songs on your phone, you have to copy the songs to the memory card.

Hope this helps.

Re: Memory card as default storage media

After you disconnect the phone from pc, you should be able to see all the songs on the memory card and should be able to play them from memory card itself.

When you open music player, refresh the library. You should be able to see your music files there.
Aso make sure that there is some free space like at least 1MB in the internal phone memory.

Hope this helps.

Re: Memory card as default storage media

For whatsapp, activated wrong access point like access point of another network provider, to block it from the internet.
