    After going through 7 HTC Incredibles, Verizon sent me the X. I cannot figure out how to set the photos to go to the SD card instead of the phone. Can someone help me? On the Incredible (not so incredible), it was under camera settings.

    Photo's always go to the SD card. There is no need for you to do anything, it's under the media in your drawer.

    Have you looked at the SD card to see if they are there?

    They're sent there by default when you take a picture. If not, restart the phone then check your gallery.

    The drawer is the app drawer. Where you apps are.

    Don't be confused. Sometimes the "short answer" is just not sufficient.

    When you take pictures, the photos DO go on your SD card into a folder called "dcim" (Digital Camera IMages). They are NOT stored in the phone memory.

    When you press the App Drawer button on the screen (the triangle surrounded by a circle in the bottom center of your home screen) you can scroll down to the Files app which, when opened, SAYS "Phone files" but that's not the PHONE'S file system, it's the file system on the SD card. By default, Android kind of keeps the user out of the phone's file system to protect the operating system.

    So your images ARE going into the SD card. The stock camera app has no setting to change the photo location to something other than /SD/dcim.

    You are good to go.

    if you want to make sure they are going to SD rather than the phones memory, remove your SD card, and then look on the DX for the picture's in "phone storage". - they wont be there, cause they're on the SD card.
    Then you can also double check by inserting the SD card into your PC and make sure they are in DCIM.
