    Hi, My question is not directly related to android software. i am using galaxy mini, total phone internal memory is 181 mb out of which 150 mb is occupied. my phone has external memory of 2 GB (25% is utilized up to date).
    Problem i am having is related to storage setting, i.e, i want that the new apps i download in future must utilise SD card and not phone memory. Recently i tried to download a game of ~50 mb from android market, but my download did not occur and give the error that "enough memory is not available, plz remove the current applications to download this app." i figure out that app i tried to download tried to utilize internal phone memory.

    Let me explain "my research" i did to solve the issue:

    1. i search in "setting" and i found no option in it to set SD card as primary storage devise.

    2. i go to settings > application > manage applications > running > setting storage (v 2.2.1). All the options (i.e. force stop, uninstall, clear data, move to SD card) is "off". ( i am getting impression that the function is disable??) see the attachment plz.

    if someone using the same phone reading my question then kindly explain me this and help me out, i am feeling that i cannot install any apps as my internal memory is nearly full??
