    Here's one of my questions. When I download an email attachment it goes to the messaging folder on the SD card. How can I move it to the documents folder without plugging the X into my PC and moving it that way? If I long hold on the document I want to move, I get the option to move it, but when I click move, nothing happens. Thanks for your help.

    Use the File Manager app, or Astro File Manager from the Market.

    I tried the file manager app. It didn't seem to cooperate. I long hold the file I want to move, select move from the list, then a box comes up at the bottom of the screen that says move or cancel. If I click move, it immediately says move complete, but never gives me the choice of where to move it to. I can't figure it out.

    After u long press and select move, don't hit move at the bottom until u have gone to the folder u want it moved to. Imagine the second move button as a paste button.

    Sweet, that is too easy. I never tried to change folders after the move button came up. Thanks so much.

    Is there a way to change where a file is automatically saved? Instead of saving to the messaging folder, I would like to be able to save it in the documents folder by default. Is this possible?
