So heres my situation..

My SD was set as internal storage, and I wanted a larger one so I tried to move everything over to the real internal storage. There wasn't enough room and it cancelled, but instead of keeping everything on the SD card it formatted the SD card (now empty ) put the stuff on the actual device (now full!) but won't allow me to access the device storage from any app.  (ES files explorer, default explorer, setting/storage etc.) It's still telling me to insert the SD card (which it's now has a different name for it, and is reading it as empty and as a different SD card...)

I inserted a new SD card 64GB and formatted it as internal storage, but it's not allowing me to take screenshots because the storage is full...

I tried accessing internal storage from the browser but it's not finding it..

The actual data is on the device, and to verify that, I checked my Google photos and I can see the photos, although I can't see the image (it's  grey), but ,I was able to send it and they were able to see the image... It's also showing an SD card symbol near the images..

After doing some research I see that you cannot access the internal memory of a device via the browser.

I have the Moto x4. To get to the phone keypad I first need to  go into the phone app and then hit the keypad button. Is there a way to make it that it goes directly to the keypad?

I have deleted the app multiple times and reinstalled to no avail. I also cleared the permission and defaults but I can't get the app to open.

Do you have a filter on that device?
Some filters will force you to use the browser for Instagram.
I'm not who you think I am.

I have a Verizon basic flip phone and a tablet that has the Verizon messages app.

I'm trying to transfer the text messages to a new device but because its a tablet none of the transfer apps have the option to transfer(or find ) text messages.

Below is an example of the app (on a PC sees the text but cant find them..)

While its loading it finds 10k texts messages but then it finds nothing!

What can I do?

Why dont you download "google messages" from play store and upon opening app click on "set as default messaging app" all messages should automatically transfer as far as I know and then back up to google from there

Doesn't work.

Since the tablet doesn't offically have SMS messages it doesn't show up in Google messages at all.

See messages vs Verizon messages
