    you know the more information you give us, the better the answer is going to be, and more information doesn't mean writing sd card twice for whatever reason ;)

    there is a tutorial in this forum how to install all/most?? (didn't read it) apps on the sd card.

    but there's still the dalvik cache for example, and i think some other cache that will be stored on your internal memory unless you have darktremor a2sd (to get that you need a special rom or idk run scripts till you're dead).

    why do you care? i never had problems with internal memory, big apps can usually be moved to sd card (like angry birds), the rest doesn't use much space, i always had 80mb free even with 40+ apps even before i got darktremor a2sd.

    also remove all apps you don't need because it may speed up your phone significantly, you are most likely to run out of RAM before you run out of internal storage (except if you only install well coded apps, chances are high you wont).

    thanks man for your replay, but this is the problem all my apps on sd card ,when i unistall it from the sd card ,the phone memory increase, and when i move the apps to the sd card nothing happen to the phone memory it still small, and i as told you i just bought so idon't understand what dalvik mean or darktremor, and where does the data go ? for example angry birds it's 16 mb but i saw it only 2mb on the sd card so where is the other 14mb goes? and if it was on the phone memory how can i move it to sd card?. yeah and one more thing my phone memory only 4mb left and i only have 5 apps on it all smaller than 3mb.

    no need to worry about dalvik cache, if you only have 4mb left then that's not the case. but give us some information: how do you move apps to your sd card? how many apps have you got installed?

    perhaps give this a try Androinica How to Install Apps to the SD Card by Default on Android 2.2 Froyo

    i myself never have many apps installed so i never had to do this, meaning i have little experience in this area
