Today’s cell phones are much more than just a phone. They are basically portable computers full of applications and access to the internet. On an Android phone, there are many applications that can use data that you put onto the system. Transferring data can be quite confusing. Many people are not sure of the process of putting their files onto the phone. Below we will discuss a variety of ways that this will work for you.
Why do you need to put data onto your Android Phone?
Many want to put data onto the phone to be able to use with their applications. This might be a document to read or edit. You can add spreadsheets to certain programs to look over. You might have music or video that you want to listen to or watch. All this data can be installed easily.
One way of doing this is by using the USB cable plugged into your phone. You should be able to drag and drop files onto your Android phone. Some versions might work a bit differently but it is basically like using a flash drive.
You can email attachments to yourself. Use your computer to attach something and email it to yourself. Then use your Android phone and get the attachment off of it with the email application that is already on the phone.
Sometimes you can just use the internet and download the file yourself onto your device. Not all downloads will work but many of them will. If you have your own server, you can upload files to download later on your phone.
There is a free application you can use called DropBox. It is free using up to 2 gigabytes of data. This is a program you can sync folders on your desktop, laptop, and your phone. It gives you access to a wide variety of data to use on your Android phone.
