Expand with expansion cards

Expansion card tips

  • Buy a case that includes expansion card storage slots.

  • Expansion cards are hot-swappable, which means you can eject or insert new cards any time the card is not in use.

  • SD expansion cards have a small locking tab on the side. Move it down to lock the card, preventing any changes.


Once you discover that you can carry MP3 files, software, lots of photos, audio books, videos, and even complete movies on your smartphone, an expansion card becomes a necessity. Buy a high-capacity card to hold everything (at least for a while), or a few smaller ones if you want to keep different categories of things separate. Keep the dummy card in a safe place and use it when a card is not present.
