The option for this is in the same section as where you would uninstall the app. Not all apps can be moved to the sd card, so the option may be grayed out. Still, apps like Angry Birds that take up a significant amount of storage are perfect candidates to be moved to the sd card.
Okay...I get it now yogiyahooeys. The Virgin Mobile rep SHOULD have asked me to check the internal storage space, but asked me to check the SD Card space...and honestly I wasn't savvy enough to pickup that there should be a difference.
You are right. My internal storage is at 22.9MB...so according to your response being under 25 definitely could create what appears to be internal memory overload. I guess brought on by the possibly larger 2.2 update. I'm looking through my Manage Applications files and checking to see which of the running apps I can move over to the SD Card. Well...I'll figure out how to move those that are not grayed out over, but this is a wonderful start.
What you and Darkseas suggest follows a clear and logical path to troubleshooting this problem, so I'm taking your advice and will try what youz guyz suggest.
I thank each and every responder for your willingness to help.
