You should be able to move them over to your sdcard.. and then they'll be safe
And don't sweat the lack of search or search results...we're NOT like other forums where you get flamed for even thinking about posting something someone else has already posted for. We do encourage use of the search engine, but unfortunately search engines can't read our minds (yet), so even if we THINK we know what to search for, if we're not using the same terms (keywords) as the OP and others in a thread related to what your concerns are, you're likely to have difficulty finding what you want anyway.
This may sound funny, but sometimes when I am looking for something here on our own forums, I go to Google, and sure enough I find the link back to the thread here that I am looking for, even after failing with the internal search. It's a bit unorthodox, but if it works...?
Anyway, let's work together as a team and get both your friend's phone and all the other phones you are now the SPT (Smart Phone Tech - I just made that one up...), for working like aces!
