The microSD card is for storing pictures, sounds, and ringtones. The phone will access the contents of the card via the Media Player Menu application. But first the card must be formatted by the phone to the proper folders are created on the card.

The memory card can be formatted by inserting it into the slot on the Cosmos, then on the phone, select OK (Menu) --> 9. Settings & Tools --> 0. Memory --> 3. Card Memory --> Options --> 1. Format. Once formatted the card will have four folders on it. The folders are "contact, "my_pix", "my_ringtones", "my_sounds". You can now either remove the memory card and use a card reader on a PC/MAC to move files to and from the card. Or connect the phone to a PC/MAC with the included USB cord (for powering the phone), then put the phone into USB Mass Storage mode via OK (Menu) --> 3. Tools --> *. Mass Storage. Once in Mass Storage mode the computer should see and access the microSD card and its contents.

To save pictures, sounds and ringtones to the memory card from the phone, select OK (Menu) --> 9. Settings & Tools --> 0. Memory --> 1. Save Options. From there you can set the phone save options to save to the microSD card's "my_pix", "my_ringtones", "my_sounds". The phone will play/view the saved media on the phone via the Media Center app on the phone.

I followed your instructions and formatted my microsd card. I saved a song I bought on iTunes into the "my_ringtones" folder. I was able to play the song on my computer, but not on my phone, it just says "Folder is empty" did I miss a step?

I just got the Cosmos Touch phone. I've already learned the hard way about formatting the memory card-it wiped out all of my pictures! UGH! Since I still have my old LG flip phone (I upgraded to the Cosmos Touch after about 5 years with my old phone so I don't remember it's style name), I took a few pictures on it. When i inserted the memory card into the new Cosmos Touch, it did not read any of the "test" photos I had just put on the card using my old phone. I said to "move" to phone as well and still none of my "test" photos came over. Does anyone know why? Thanks!
