In my other article, “Downloading Pictures, Video, and Other Files from LG Xenon GR500 (or any LG Mobile Phone)” it did not mention how to transfer and download files from the phone memory to a computer.  It only mentions how to move files that are inside the SD Card inside an LG Cell Phone.

These instructions describe how to move files from the LG’s internal memory to SD card.  Once your videos, pictures, music or other files are in the SD card, you can follow the instructions for downloading data to a computer from the “Download Pictures….” Article. 

Steps To Move Files From Phone Memory to Memory Card

Step 1. Select the Main Menu button on the main screen of the LG Phone.

Step 3. Select the type of files you want to move from the My Stuff Folder. We will choose video as an example. This type of file is normally too large to e-mail from the phone. If there is no SD card on the LG Phone, the videos that you take from the phone will be stored in the phone’s memory. You can start to run out of memory very fast unless you delete, e-mail, or download the video files.

Step 4.  In the video example, there are icons of the video files within the folder.  On the upper right of the screen is a menu button.  Select this by pressing this button with your finger.

Step 5.   In the menu, there is a list which includes, Send, Delete, Move To, and so on.  Select “Move To”.
