    Re: Kyocera Hydro Air: Manage the SD Card Storage / Files

    I just had to stop a minute and say THANK YOU!!!!!! I bought this phone (Kyocera Hydro AIR C6745) about a week ago from Walmart because my Nokia Lumia 1520 screen busted when I dropped it and wouldn't do anything and I needed a cheap phone to use while mine was sent off. I bought a brand new 16 GB micro SD card for the external memory. I am completely ignorant when it comes to anything seriously tech, I know enough to get by and work my way around my phone, tablet, lap top, etc but this stumped me. I couldn't find a way to move the whole apps to my new sd card. I would go to 'Settings' then 'Storage' and touch on the app and press 'Move to SD Card' but only a very small amount (I believe it was only the cached memory but I'm not 100% sure) would move. I have looked and looked and looked but would only read the same things over and over and it was what I already knew. I found your forum and WOO-HOO!!!! I did it!!! Thank you so much!! You saved me so many headaches!!!
