I am a businessman and have thousands of contacts on my Samsung. I keep adding new contacts and files until my mobile reminds me that it’s running out of memory. Then I realize that I could transfer these contacts on a spacious external SD Card. It’s indeed a good solution, but I have no idea of how to do it. Does anyone know it? Thank you in advance.

To save your contacts on the external card, you need to insert a SD card into the memory slot (of course, the device may already be inserted). Then you need to find “Contacts” on the home screen. Touch the menu key to choose “Export/Import” and confirm to export before the phone move contacts to your external memory.
Cons: such a traditional method is only an alternative approach, as it often requires several confirmations before you could succeed saving one. But don’t fret, there’s always a solution!
