I'm going to be getting a new memory card for my phone. Some of my apps are stored on my current card though, and there isn't enough room on the phone's internal memory to transfer them all over. What would be the best way to go about transferring everything without issues?

Do you have a computer with an SD reader?

I was afraid somebody was going to say that lol Computer doesn't have one, but Amazon has one for $8. Best to just turn the phone off, transfer everything to the computer, then onto the new card, and put the new card in the phone? And everything will still be installed and everything?

Some apps might have components on both the card and device, but any actual data should survive.

 

Usually microSD cards come with an adapter to turn it into a full size SD card, makes it easier to deal with at least. MicroSD is about as small as I think you can get and be ok to handle.

Everything should be okay as long as the phone is off the entire time right?
