    MicroSD Memory Cards and the LG Phone

    Learning how to transfer music to your LG phone using a microSD memory card is the ideal choice for transferring music to your LG phone. Many LG phones do not come with a USB cable or the ability to wirelessly transfer files to and from the computer. Almost all LG phones come with a microSD memory card slot.MicroSD Memory Card 

    A microSD card can be used to transfer music and other files between many different devices. Using the microSD memory card to transfer music to your LG phone requires nothing more than a few music files, a computer or laptop with a microSD slot and of course a few minutes of free time. Once the music is on the microSD card all you have to do is insert the microSD memory card into your LG phone and copy the music over to the phone.

    A standard microSD card is around 2GB in size which is enough space for around 450 MP3 files assuming that each song is around four minutes. Adding music to a microSD memory card for transfer to your LG cell phone is practical because the microSD memory card can be used multiple times to transfer as much music to your LG phone as the internal memory can hold.
