Cell phones contain an internal memory system similar to the one inside your computer. The operating system on your device uses this internal memory system to store application data, contact information and other information your cell phone needs to operate. Advanced cell phones also contain a slot for external memory storage. With this storage, you can save pictures, video and other information. You can view both the internal memory and the external memory on your cell phone through the settings applications.

  • You can view the items saved on your microSD memory card by inserting the card into your computer. You will need a microSC converter to make the miniSD card large enough to fit into your computer's external drive slot.
