    Is it possible to install apps to the sd card without rooting your phone?
    Thanks!

    Yes! If you "manage applications", some apps will let you move them to the SD card. Not all apps will let you move them though.

    OK,I was able to manage my apps, but only two allowed me to move it to the SD card. The others have to stay on the phone memory unless I root my phone. These are for now, the only options I guess...
    Thanks.

    Go to the menu (2nd bottom button), then "Settings," then "Applications," and finally "Manage Applications." Click on each app and check to see if "Move to SD Card" is available for that app.

    Someone recommended to me a great free app named "App2SD" which searches all of this automatically for you and makes it even easer to see what's on your phone, SD card, and what can be moved. There is another free app called "Android System Info" which can easily show you how much memory and ram you have available at any one time.
