Default SMS Still Being Deleted After Adding Memory

Please Login to Remove!

I added 4GB of memory to my 8830. But for some reason, my SMS messages are still being deleted after a couple of weeks. Do I need to flip a switch somewhere to say save my SMS messages to secondary drive and not my device memory?

On my device memory I have a couple of pictures, voice notes and a few downloaded ring tones.

You can't save SMS to a memory card. Only media such as music, videos, pictures, etc.

Move the pictures, ring tones and voice notes to the media card.

Also, follow these links to prevent this issue from happening.
