SD Card set up


#1

I just set up my phone and my account. Can somewhere tell me where I can get setup details for installing the SD Card that I bought with the phone? Is it as simple as placing it in the Sim card slot? Does the card need to be formatted in any way?

What happens depends on the phone you have. I unwrapped mine, stuck one in my S7 which found it and told me what to do with it. I could only use it as separate storage but I understand some models will let you add it to the main memory.

I setup my moto X pure to use SD as external. I found a couple of articles which help with whether you should use SD as external or internal (extension of your internal storage). Hope the below helps.
