Cell phone memory cards are external memory cards that can be inserted within the cell phones to transfer files to and from them, including pictures, videos and music. Because they are designed for cell phones, which are small, the memory cards themselves are small as well. They are technically referred to as microSD memory cards, and with the appropriate adapter, you can use one of these memory cards to add music to a cell phone from your computer. Plus, the process of doings so is relatively simple once you get the hang of it.
