    Hello everyone!

    You might remember me from a few months earlier about memory issue with my phone. The Micro SD was the great solution but there is a problem. My apps nor anything seems to go on it except pictures and videos. I can't transfer any apps.I have changed the option from phone storage to SD Card. I have contacted my provider as suggested by many but they were kind of rude and didn't help me at all. All they said was that only some apps could be transfered and I explained to them that all of my apps were non transferable. They just repeated exactly what they said and provided no solution. I come here because I need help from you guys who probably have tons more information than they do. So I need help trying to transfer apps to the SD card since I have been living off 60MB all these months. Any suggestions as to what I can do? I'm trying not to limit myself to only rooting my phone. Thank you in advance! Anything helps and I really appreciate you taking your time to read this.

    Phone: Alcatel One One Touch Pop Icon

    Card: 32GB Micro SD Card​

    Some apps can't be transferred to the SD Card. What apps are you trying to move?

    These apps are like Instagram, FB, Tumblr, iFunny and apps gotten from the Google Play Store.

    1. Go to settings.
    2. Go to Apps.
    3. Click on app that I want to move.
    4. Look for Move to SD card option without luck
    I have tried all apps I've downloaded and the system apps without success.

    Ok. I thought I remembered you knowing that much, but I figured I'd check.

    There are apps available for download like Apps2SD or something like that that might help, but it's still going to depend on whether or not the apps you've downloaded were coded to be able to be moved to the SD card.

    Remind me again, what version of Android does your device have?

    I don't think any of these apps listed allow being moved to SDCard. The Dev has to enable that feature. I'm booting up my old trusty Bionic to try them.

    Sorry my friend but unfortunately the only way is for you to root your phone..that's why is called root..lol..also your version 4.0 and up doesn't allow those privileges..
