Notsure Internal Memory Filling Up

Hi all!

Sorry to register and post immediately but I'm new to android and am having some teething trouble.

My old phone has died and I've borrowed an X10 from my family but the phone memory is being used rather than the 2GB SD card that I have installed. I want to move everything to the SD card to free up the memory but the "move to SD card" option is greyed out!

I took back a brand new Galaxy Ace to the shop today because it had the exact same issue and was surprised to see that this is a problem with Android itself rather than a phone issue.

I've read that I need to "root" my phone but I don't know what this will do to the phone and am worried because I will eventually have to give the phone back! I'm assuming "root" is like the administrator privilages similar to linux.

Phone details are:

Model: X10i
Android Version: 2.3.3
Baseband Version: 2.1.71
Kernal Version: 2.6.29-00054-g5f01537
Build Version: 3.0.1.G.0.75

Can anyone help please?

I have searched for this on the forum but nobody has posted how to do this with the X10i on 2.3.3

Thanks!

You can't move and run everything from the SDCard.

Most apps you should be able to move there....if you have rooted your phone.

If I put a rooted x10 and a non rooted x10 beside each other. 99 percent of users couldn't tell the difference.

Root it if you want....or don't

Hiya

It is not rooted and no I can't move all the apps to the SD card, in fact nothing pre-installed will move over apart from a handful of apps i've installed.

There is basically nothing installed yet I've only got half of the internal memory left.

Anyway, I'm waiting for a ICS 4 ROM that has a working camera so I can have a play with flashing as 2.3.3 looks really dated now
