Hi there and welcome

What exactly happens when you put the SD card into the phone and try to access it?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
It recognizes it but does not transfer data to it automatically. I would like it to this as does any other phone such as a Samsung that I have. thanks.

Which data re you referring to? Photos?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
No any data that I have should transfer automatically to the s d car as it does on any other phone. How do I make it happen automatically. There must be a switch somewhere on the phone
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Any data not only pictures. Any over run of data or pictures or anything else such as GPS

No, this is all per the App, so for instance for the camera, you set the default storage location as the SD card via settings in the camera app.

For apps, only some apps can run from the SD card, and this you do after installing by going to settings, Manage Applications and if the app has been developed where it can run from the SD card then you have the button Move to SD which you can press (though for some apps this will stop it being able to be a widget).

But this phone has no global setting for this, its done per app.
