By default, your captured pictures and videos are stored on your device's internal memory. If you have installed a microSD™ card, your device will ask if you want to change the storage location to the microSD card the next time you open the Camera application.

You can save room on your device by moving pictures, videos, and other files to your microSD card or to the My Files application.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
