    Some applications can be moved to the SD card, some can't. It's not a matter of the upgrade, it's a matter of how the application was written.

    Although my friend is right that it does depend on the app, it's also the case that moving apps to SD was removed from the Android OS (though some manufacturers have added the function back in for some handsets). So I could imagine that an update might have removed this if the manufacturer didn't really think about what they were doing. Not knowing what phone you have I can't really say more.

    If that is what's happened though, there's no solution other than to root the phone and modify the software. If you feel like investigating that, people in the main forum will be happy to advise. How you do this does depend on the phone model, so it's important to get advice for your particular phone. Otherwise you have to live without this function.
