    Hi, tap options, manage apps, all, tap on the app you're referring to, there's a spot that says transfer or move app... if its an option for that app, it'll show there, just tap on it.

    Jaye, where it says "move to internal storage" should move it to your internal sdcard. You can always double check. After you move it to internal storage, go back to the app in settings and it should say "move to phone sotrage."

    Oops, sorry Jaye but it probably will not work on the replacement Razr... because it still is on the internal sd card. But all is not lost. Now that it is on the internal sdcard, you can save it or move it to your external sdcard or actually what you should do is...
    • On your pc, create a folder for your razr sd cards.
    • I would make a folder for internal sd card and one for external sd card
    • Then copy everything that is on your internal sd card into the internal sd card folder on your pc.
    • Periodically copy the contents of your external sd card into the external sd card folder on your pc (to have for backup in case something happens to that card)
    • Then copy the contents from your internal sd card folder onto the internal sd card of your phone... or just copy the files you think you need.

    in that case, just move the app folder from your internal sd card to your external sd card... then when you put your external sd card to the new phone, you can move that folder to the internal sd card on your new phone.

    You're welcome jaye! Hope it did what you were trying to accomplish. It's hard sometimes because there can be so many ways to accomplish the same result.
