Changing the storage location of Messages from phone memory to SD card

Krishna Kumar N (unregistered) 25 May 2011, 08:18 posted on

Hi All,

I bought an Ace a week ago and installed a lotta of application and most of them fit only into phone memory and i message a lot. Messages are eating up my phone memory everyday. I dont want to take a back up of my messages to SD Card, instead i want my messages to be stored in memory card (as i used to do in my earlier Nokia 5800).

If anyone of you know on how to change the default storage for messages or if there is any application available for doing the same, please help me with it.
Thank in advance.

As what I know, u can try to root your Galaxy Ace. But, by doing that it will affect the warranty of phone. However, rooting android phone make better performance.

You can download an app called "Move 2 sd" form google play and this will help to move the apps from Phone to memory card and it will also clear the cache and free some phone memory.. Hope this will help you out!!!

The Samsung J3vdoes not allow apps to be moved to the DR card which effectively makes this phone suck. This was a conscious decision msde by Samsung in response to all the people who root their phones and proceed to remove core applications. I'm In my opinion, this was stupid. They are punishing all the people who only moved downloaded apps to the SD card. The phone comes with only 8G of storage and more than half of that is used up when you get the phone by system apps. I was just informed I have some viruses, but I will have to delete several apps to be able to down load sn app to get rid of them. I so regret buying this phone. I heard all This good about Galaxies, but this one sucks!! I need to know how to move texts to the SD card, as thats something supposedly allowed, but can't find out how ti do it anyway. Samsung needs to put out an update allowing people to use the SD card that right now, was a waste of money. I loathe Samsung and will until I csn actually put a few apps pn my phone and keep them there.
