Moving Apps from Internal Storage to SD Card (#Huawei)

20 Apr

**Author is not responsible for anything that results from you testing these steps.  This is not guaranteed to work nor is it from a ‘phone professional.’  I just bought an SD card and spent hours trying to figure out how to move things because the internet was generally unhelpful. This is what worked for me.  If you are at all concerned about the risk, ask a professional phone person to help you.  

Step 1 – Setting up SD Card

  1. Plug the SD card into your phone. 
  2. Go to “Settings”
  3. At the bottom go to “Advanced Settings”
  4. Go to “Memory & Storage”
  5. Under “portable storage” click “SD card” 
  6. Click “Format” if is possible. 
  7. Go back to Memory & Storage
  8. Click “Default Location” 
  9. Choose SD Card. 
  10. The phone will restart and new things will go into the SD card from now on. 

Step 2 – Moving Apps from Internal Storage to SD Card

  1. Go to “Settings”
  2. Go to “Apps”
  3. Click on the App you want to move.
  4. Click “Storage.”  You’ll now see a line at the top that says “Storage Used      Internal Storage”
  5. If it can be moved below that line should be a button “Change”
  6. Click “Change 
  7. Choose “SD Card”
  8. Click “Move”
  9. You’ve done it!


Clearing Google Play Cashe

2 Sep

497 Error ~ or How to Clear your Google Play Cashe on Samsung Android Phone

Now that I am in China, I have learned that having the WeChat application (texting app) is absolutely vital to living here.  However, when I attempted to download it to my mom’s Samsung Galaxy Phone, it kept giving me an Error 497 message and refusing to download.  After a few days of fiddling with it, I finally figured out the problem (can apply to other apps having errors to)~ I needed to clear the Google Play Cashe (it screwed up on the first download and this scrambled its brains 😛 )

1. Go to your Phone’s home screen.

2. Find “Settings” (Usually looks like a Gear)

3. Go to the “More” tab.

4. Find “Application Manager”

5. Go down the list to find “Google Play Store” (or app you are struggling with) and Click to open

6. There will be a lot of information here ~ “Force Stop”, “Uninstall Updates,” and a certain ways down, you will see “Clear Cashe”

7. Click the “Clear Cashe Button”

8. Now close and go try your app again!

Good Luck!
