Memory card

Your device supports a microSD™ memory card, which is used for storing content. This

You may have to purchase a memory card separately.

turned off. If you want to remove the memory card when your phone is on, you must first

unmount the memory card before you physically remove it from the phone. This can

prevent damaging the memory card or losing data stored on the memory card.
