    1. Hi Jake Dube,
      Thanks for coming.
      While you're in the folder where you save the picture you want to move, eg camera folder, tap the Menu key then select Move. The pictures on this folder now will have checkbox next to them. Tap on each picture you wish to move then tap Move button located on the upper right corner, this will bring you to the main folder. From here you can go to the folder where you want to move the picture, then tap Move here button located on the upper right corner to move all selected pictures.
      Hope it helps :)

  2. You don't need the MyFiles App.
    1) Open the folder (using Gallery) containing the pictures you want to move.
    2) Touch and hold a picture you want to move
    3) You will now have a small square in the upper right of each picture and a green tick in the one you touched and held. To select more than one, touch the square in each picture you want to move to select it (a second touch will deselect it).
    4) Touch the MENU button (left of HOME) and touch "Move" on the resulting menu. A list of folders will appear.
    5) Touch the folder into which you want to move the selected pictures.
    DONE.

    1. Hi JohnOfStony,
      I'm so glad reading your comment.
      Yes, you right. There are several ways we can do to move the picture with this phone, and the steps I've mentioned above is the way to move one picture only. And your steps can be done to move multiple pictures, as I've said on my reply to answer the question from Jake Dube in his comment right above you. I also have written about how to move multiple picture in another post.
      Btw, I really appreciate your willing to share your useful knowledge and experience here. I hope it will provide all of us benefit and help.
      Thanks again for the visit and a good comment.
      May God always bless you :)

    1. Hi Tom,
      Thanks for coming.
      CMIIW, I thinks you will not be charged when you just move the movie between folders on your phone. You may be charged if you download the movies or videos from the internet to your phone.
      Hope this helps :)

  4. Hi Rehan
    Previously, I have succesfully moved files using the My Files app.
    Now, it just keeps saying 'moving failed'.
    Any ideas or help please?

    1. Hi Leandra Kruger,
      Thanks for coming.
      Did you made any changes before you're encountering this problem? Or, you may have to try to use other file manager apps such as ES File explorer or Astro File manager apps to move the files, then see whether it helps :)
