    Does Apps2sd app support all android phones and does the phone have to be rooted to use it?

    If I remember correctly,No you don't have to have root for Apps2SD to work.

    It depends on how the phone is set up. Any phone that designates a portion of the internal storage as an emulated SD Card will not work with Apps2SD.

    The more universally "compatable" method is Link2SD, but that DOES require rooting. It uses a portion of your SD Card to effectively expand your "internal" storage. Your phone will think it's still on the internal memory, but it will actually be on the external card.

    Thank you I guess I won't know till I purchase the phone tonight. It will either be Samsung Galaxy Centura or a Huawei Ascend Plus both are Straight Talk phones.

    This topic led me to an ugly discovery. I used to have 2.3.3 on my Optimus, now have 2.3.6 on my Ascend 2. Settings in the newer OS have Preferred Install Location, offering (a) Internal device storage, (b) Removable SD card, or (c) Let the system decide.

    I had it in (c), but decided to see what’d happen if I switched to (b). Sure enough, it didn’t move installed apps but let me move them – even widgets. And just as I suspected, all the widgets broke. I had switch back to (c), move everything back to internal and then see what could go back to SD. Then I had to reconfigure all the widgets.

    Why the ... do they even offer choice (b) if there’s no way it would work?

    Oh boy what a mess you went through hopefully all is ok now? I wish all the phones would have the option to move apps to sd without problems and hassles. I totally understand what you mean.

    I should have known better or just tired one simple widget first, but curiosity, the cat and all that.

    Curiosity and stupidity are fraternal twins.

    I knew it broke widgets, was just mystified that the OS allowed me to move them there, so I had to try it. It was like having permission to play in the freeway.
