Default How do i save things on the SD card?

When i download things from the "Shop" i cant choose where to save it. It only starts to download.

I find the SDHC 8 GB in the phone and i have formated it.

You need to have the phone rooted to do this. There's a big thread on it over at xda modified: Installing & Run application on sdcard - xda-developers

If your not rooted, apps usually give you the option to store their offline data to the SD Card. But that's it.

you should have enough room on the internal phone memory to install apps on there, just use your sd card for other things like music, videos and pictures.

With most user data (music, photos, video etc) being stored on the external memory card, you can actually install an awful lot of apps into that 160MB....

Yeah, the storage space for the apps is actually plenty. Any apps that require large amounts of storage for data (e.g. satnav, some games) tend to store that data on the SD card, but the actual executable (which is pretty small) stays on the internal storage.
