Default moving apps to SD card htc evo

Some of the apps I have on the phone (downloaded) can be moved to the SD card, yet many of the apps that come bundled with the phone cannot be moved to the sd card. Why is this ???? Is there an app that can be downloaded to moves these to the sd card ????

Welcome shimmyfab!
I believe the apps that cannot be moved, that came with the phone, are system apps.
And, the apps that you have moved, only move part of the app.
Some apps that use widgets cannot be moved either.

Are you running out of internal storage?

Yes I am running out of Internal Storage. This phone is full of Apps that I have never used. Previously - I had the same phone - but I had it rooted - and I don't want to go through the same hassle of rooting it again. Was wondering if there was another way of getting rid of these apps that just take up space - any ideas ??

Ah yes...the bloatware, useless apps Those cannot be removed without rooting the phone.
If you are running out of internal space, try deleting some text messages, uninstalling some apps you have downloaded that you dont use, uninstalling some updates to apps etc.

Use app2sd and you may be able to move a the few apps but not all. Rooting is still the best choice
