    PROBLEM SOLVED
    In order to move some apps from the Root to external SD- have downloaded the GL to SD. While trying to open it ..I received following note:
    Your device does not have root privelege. !!
    What does it suppose to mean ?

    I ran into the same issues when I just bought my Galaxy S3. I assumed that an additoinal SD card would solve my issues without rooting. I bought the 64Gig sd card and feel without rooting I just wasted my money as I will never use that much. May end up just swapping out a smaller card and use the 64 on another device (camera, camcorder etc. that can use the larger card). And I spoke to Samsung and Verizon about getting the 64gig card as opposed to the 32 gig and not once did they say there would be any kind of restrictions. Since I am brand new to smartphones they got me this time.....

    It means you need to root your phone, of course you will void your warranty. Root access means having full access to restricted features within your device. There are multiple videos on youtube that show you how to do it but be careful, you could brick your phone if an error is made during the process.

    But just to be clear you can unroot the phone as well. So it only voids your warranty while you're rooted. You can go back and it won't be a problem.

    I've noticed some weird things with my sd card since buying my s3, maybe someone else has noticed these problems. First thing is that with astro, it labels the internal memory as "sd" and the micro sd card (64gb) as "ext-sd". I never really thought anything of it, although dont remember this on my droid x.
    Now I got jelly bean (verizon, so not the official) and i finally rooted and did a backup with titanium which saved the backup onto my phone and I ran out of memory. I used titanium and moved all possible apps to the sd card and I gained 0 free space even though it showed that they were moved to the sd card. I solved it myself by moving a bunch of things manually.

    Anyone have this happen to them? I do remember changing the camera save destination directory to the sd card, and that worked correctly.

    Did you try using another file browser?? New Astro kinda sucks...

    Also I know most of the JB leaks are good but not great and still need some tweaking...

    For me on the 16GB version of the SG3 there will be 11 Gigs left for Apps and anything else, that is more than enough "for me", as I see that has caused a big uproar all over the web in regards to this issue, I say keep the Apps that you use MOST in your MY Apps Installed folder in the Google Play market, and the ones you hardly use in your ALL folder in the App market. That would be the only solution I would have for this issue till Samsung resolves this problem.
    I heard that you can do that if you root your phone. The only big problem is that the warranty is void if you root your phone!!!

    Saving to sd card

    I have a Samsung Charge running ICS and I can move apps to the external sd card. I also have the 32 gb S3 with an external 32 GB card. I have 3 gb free internally, and nothing but photos in the external. I hope this is something Samsung and Google will change and fix.

    Wow you have 29gb worth of apps on your internal SD card??? That's gotta be like 500+ apps, including games! Do you really use all of them??

    Gameloft and EA games can run 1 to 2 GB easily. Movies are 1GB and HD Movies are 4 to 6 GB. Easy way to take up space
