    Everywhere I read I saw that the internal storage for the Razr was going to be 16GB. But when i got to settings and select storage I see Total space - 8gb, and available space 8gb. Can anyone explain? Thought we were getting 16gb?

    there is 16gb internal memory but 5.5gb is used for the os and for the lapdock application. 2.5gb is reserved for apps and the other 8 is user accessible. i got that info on a tech call at work. i work at a corporate vzw store

    What worries me is that I have not found an option to send apps to the micro SD card. That option - which was on the Droid X - has been replaced with the option to move the app to that special partition of the phone's internal memory reserved for app storage called "Media area", which is limited to 8 gb

    Nevermind. I just found it. To move apps from the phone's internal storage you have to go to home screen, hit menu button, go to setting, go to Storage.

    But doesn't this just move the app to the internal SD card? As far as I know, apps can't move to the external SD card (micro SD), it is treated like media storage, intended for pictures, videos, music, documents, etc..
