How to activate sd card lg vista 2

You don't activate an SD card. You just insert it and it gets mounted. The only cards that get 'activated', are SIM cards, so you can get service.

Now, if you are trying to set up the SD card to accept apps, etc., which is a common question, then you would need 2 things (plus the instructions I am including here). 1. The phone has to be running, or upgradable to, Android "Marshmallow." 2. The manufacturer must not have restricted the option to make this change on that device. (Which does happen.) Follow the instructions below. If they don't work for you, you may have a device that has been restricted by the manufacturer.


How to turn external SD card into internal storage on "Marshmallow".

NOTE: Please be sure you start with a blank SD card. It needs to be blank because when the card is converted to "Internal" storage, it will be formatted (wiped) and encoded (making the cards data only readable by that device).

1. Go to device “Settings”, then select “Storage”.
2. Select your "SD Card", then tap the “three-dot menu“ (top-right), now select “Settings” from in there.
3. Now select “Format as internal”, and then “Erase & Format”.
4. Your SD Card will now be formatted as internal storage.
5. Reboot your phone.

NOTE: If you don't reboot the phone, many things may not work correctly, so make sure you do.
