    Model : LG VM701 (Optimus Slider / Virgin Mobile)
    Android : 2.3.4

    Things I've tried
    app2SD or some variants : This doesn't give me any more options than what the settings gives me.

    I tried using adb shell pm setInstallLocation 2
    and this failed (killed)

    I tried using LG's mobile support tool to attempt to see if there were any upgrades/updates I could do, but even after installing the specified USB device driver, the software failed to detect the phone (debugger mode on/off : usb mass storage off, no option to select LG/PC software)

    I have not rooted the phone.
    I cannot run su from within a shell (permission denied)

    I'm not sure what to try next.

    It's really annoying, I have about 10 megs free on the internal memory and about 1 gig on the SD card, yet I can't seem to move anything to it (well, parts of a few things, but nothing significant).

    Thanks for any thoughts!

    You need to be rooted to do this. Then use link2sd. Look under all things root for the optimus v (not the slider)for a detailed guide. I did this with my wife's slider, kind of a pain but managed to free up about 85mb. Just make sure you dont link facebook, terminal emulators, or any widgets you use alot or you will invite constant force closures. I ended up installing the mobster rom with gingerkernel and works better than stock but space is always an issue with this phone.
