Find the Manage Applications and tap on an app. Does it show the move to SD feature?

AHA. So the mystery is solved.

Your device does support the move to SD card. So if an app can be moved, that's where it's at.

If you want to repeat the old question about why apps don't move, go right ahead but it has been discussed before.

What version of Android OS ??
by birdmantd Forum moderator / September 8, 2012 12:04 PM PDT

Froyo, Gingerbread, or Ice Cream Sandwhich (ICS) ?? I honestly don't know what version of Android OS the device has installed on it.

That might....

....make a difference. If your phone doesn't have a feature to move the applications you need to search for and install one that will accomplish your goal. Wish I could offer an application name, but I don't know one. Hopefully, someone can offer a solution and post a name (Please, no hyperlinks) of such an app.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
