Need info regarding memory card

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a Tracfone Optimus Fuel/lg34c on order for my wife. It comes with a 4 gig memory card. I would like to replace it with a 32 gig card I have. I have been trying to get help from several web sites. So far...

1)Tried LG tech support. Could not understand broken English.
2)Tried Tracfone tech support. They will only reply to me in a live chat. I want something I can print out and use for reference.
3)Tried Tracfone Forums. Some sort of security protocol is making it very difficult to access forums.
4)Tried cell phone forums. No help.

Please. I need to know, when the phone arrives, it does not have a battery installed. I am expecting the memory card to be blank. Can I swap out the memory cards then? I don't understand mounting and unmounting card. Will I need to do that? Would memory card have to be manually formatted or will phone do it automatically? Once its formatted, I am assuming phone will use the memory to store phone numbers, texts, ringtones, etc?

Please. Can anyone answer my questions before I screw up this phone?

You can swap out memory cards on Android but you need to unmount the SD card in the storage options before removing it to keep any data being transferred from getting corrupted. You can manually format any SD card on Android phones. The phone will use the on-board memory to store contacts and ring tones unless you specifically set all downloads, apps, ringtones, etc.. to be saved onto the SD card. Contacts can also be saved onto the sim card itself.
