I can't take photos on my phone these days as too many links hop in from telegram and other channels and I can't keep up with it all.  I'm told that an SD card will solve the problem but where do I get one fitted locally(ish) please?

Hi Elaine,

I am not currently in Portugal and in Salir when I am there, but I will try to point you in the right direction.

Putting an SD card in your phone is probably not an instant answer to your problem :-(

There are many ' it depends ' answers to your question :-

1. Which phone you have - some do not take SD cards

2. How old is the phone - Is it old and takes a SD card or newer and needs a microSD card?

3. Which apps you use - not all apps give the option to save to the SD card (you need to manage your data and manually move things from the internal memory to the SD card (or remove it to a computer).

4. Can you set your apps to NOT automatically download things? (I have WhatsApp set to not download images unless I click on them and I delete most of them after seeing them [ as they are still available on the WhatsApp server if I ever need them again]).

Where to go for the SD Card?

Any phone/media shop (Vodafone, MEO, NOS etc.) should be willing to sell to you and fit the SD card for you. You might have to pay a Euro or two extra for the card compared to Internet prices, but it is fitted for you.

I hope this helpsIan
