There's certain pictures that I want off my phone and to never see again. Sadly, every time I delete the photo it doesn't permanently delete it, just temporarily. Help! I don't like this
I figured it out! My gallery was set to save my photos to my SD card. If this is your setting, the photos will NOT delete.
This is what I did:
1. Sort through your gallery and delete the useless photos and duplicates.
2. Upload your photos to a Cloud, Dropbox, etc.
3. Unmount SD card
4. Connect your SD card to your computer and delete the pictures!
Even though I connected it to my computer, they still didn't want to delete.
So, I connected the SD card back into my phone and ERASED it.
Just know, any photos, music, apps you have on it will be permanently gone.
After a restart to test it, the photos are no more! (Almost 700)
And please, it is imperative that you BACK UP your photos!
This was driving me crazy too, but I finally found a solution! The only way to remedy this issue is to download a gallery app (I did Gallery KK) & delete pics through that. It works! I hate this phone!
First, I want you to backup your photos to a computer. After that go to Settings > look for Gallery, tap it > tap Clear data. Check your gallery if there are still photos after that, if there is, delete it from there. Let me know if that works.
