    You don't need to root your phone for this :)

    > Settings > Application > Manage applications > select an app and move it to the SD card.

    Or you'd use an app like SDMove for that job :)

    Look in the forum at "Desire - Tips and Tricks", there is a long thread about this.
    Maybe that helps you :)

    EDIT: See, this thread is in the Desire forum because Desire owner have to worry phone storage for apps.
    The Sensation has enough phone storage for apps, so 'don't worry - be happy' with the Sensation :)

    I had a Desire, so I know, with apps on the SD card there are some disadvantages.

    Sometimes there is a problem with download from Market, yes.

    My solution is to cancel the download and then re-start it.
    So never it stucks for hours :)

    For to cancel a stuck download I press the download bar, so I get back to the app in market and then tip the cancel button ... voila :)
