Make SD card default download on ALCATEL ONE TOUCH POP ICON

Please don't use all CAPS.

Well, that phone I believe runs Android "KitKat", and you would not be able to make the SD card work for apps. You can put music, videos, photos, etc., on the SD card, and set the card as the default place for that stuff, but not apps. You need to be running "Marshmallow" to run apps from the SD card. If you can somehow upgrade the phone to "Marshmallow" then you can try using the following instructions. However, it won't work with prior versions.


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.
