    Is it possible to have apps installed onto SD Card rather than using the internal memory?

    If I am not mistaken, this ability is offered in 2.2 but not the current firmware.

    Requires android 2.2 and for that specific app to support installing to the SD card. The 748MB available for apps is more than plenty, if space is a concern.

    I don't know how thats possible, I must have misunderstood when I read about this phone, Because I read it had 8gb of internal memory on top of an sd card port...I have an 8gb sd card in it because I only have a total of ~800 mb...-_-

    You have an 8gb internal memory that is partitioned. The 748MB partiton is for apps, the other partitions are for the OS and it's data, then you have a 6.6gb partition that you can actively write to for music, pictures, documents etc.
