    I'm not sure how it is supposed to work, but I was only able to move 1 of the installed apps to the SD card. The others didn't have the option.

    App2SD only works if the developer puts a line of code in to the program to enable it... and alas it seems like many are too... preoccupied? to do that one line.


    Granted I know all apps can't be installed to SD, but for many there is little reason to not have that ability.

    Every design decision is a compromise. Do you think they really made this decision to spite you and for no good reason?

    Yes?



    I'm trying to find out where the compromise was to have sub-1gb, let alone less than 200mb, of internal storage since back when these phones were being designed the ONLY way to have a program installed was on internal storage.
