    Hi guys , new poster here so go easy !


    ,
    I bought an Android phone yesterday (galaxy W) and have downloaded maybe 20 or so apps , i am trying to move the apps to the sd card as the phone memory is full but the phone tells me that the sd card is full , i have formatted the SD card and i have also tried a different 8gig sd card and still have the same problem ,
    where am i going wrong ??

    You cannot actually move an installed app to SD card, but just the .apk package (which has to be a non-market one). There's this app called "app2sd". I don't remember well, but I think it needs a root and superuser access. You said that your phone is new, so I wouldn't recommend messing with it so early. :p
    Let's just wait and see what others have to say. . .
