    I'm not understanding why some apps (even those that haven't been run or aren't running) can't be moved to the SD, while others can. Of the 50 or so apps on my phone, it seemed that 80% of them had the "Move to SD" grayed out.

    Anyone know why?

    The app developer has to update it to allow it to be moved to the SD Card. it's not just an automatic thing. Right now there are so few phones running 2.2 overall that the app dev's prolly don't see the NEED to update the app yet.
