    Contacts Storage on phone or SD

    Email and calendar storage, too, for that matter.

    I have a lot of contacts and emails. It seems that they are not stored on SD and they are hogging my phone storage space.

    That just doesn't seem right.

    Any way to move all this data to SD? And if not, why the hell not?

    How many contacts do you have?

    How much room does it take?

    But there is also always a local copy.

    if contacts or any other apps are moved to the sd card, will they be continued to receive updates? and for contacts, will it be continued to be synced to contacts online?

    Yes, applications will get updates.

    I know of no way to move contacts anywhere.

    I'm new here. Don't know much either. But I think, logically, you may be right. No doubt contacts are online in Gmail and synchronized automatically. But assume you have no Wi-Fi or GPRS, but you can still see your contacts! So the phone memory is being used. Some smart guy has to tell us how to move to SD card?
