    I have a BlackBerry Z10 and I have an 8gb memory card. I've bought an 32gb memory card. What is the procedure for changing the memory card? Would changing the memory card affect any of my apps? I used to have an Android phone and some of the apps were stored on the memory card. Is this the case with a BlackBerry Z10? There are songs and a movie on my current memory card. Can I switch the cards back and forth? Or do I have to transfer the songs and movie to the new memory card? I appreciate any advice. Thank-you.

    Apps don't get stored on the memory card like with Android so it's just your data on card, things like photos, videos, music, things you downloaded (if you stored them there).

    You can swap memory cards as much as you like. The phone will spend a while scanning the card for media so that Pictures app can see photos on it, but no harm is done.

    If you want to transfer everything from the smaller card to the bigger one, plug your BlackBerry in to a computer, access the memory card using the computer and copy everything on the card to the computer. Then put the bigger card in the phone (with the phone powered off) and hook it back up to the computer and copy everything you copied earlier to the new card.

    You can also use clean master (via snap) to move android apps back and forth from device to card and vice versa

    You don't need a 3rd party app to install APK's from the sd card. Just run the APK from the card. You can ONLY install from the card. All the files will still be on the phone's memory.

    As for the swap to a new SD card. Don't move that stuff to your phone. Copy the entire card to your pc in a folder. Format the new card in the phone. Move the entire contents of the card to the new card folders and all. This way the file system will be intact.
