    I'm getting a message that my phone space is low. How do I move stuff over to the sd card and what type of programs should I move to sd card?

    Unrooted, you go into Settings>Applications>Manage applications and go to each app. If the "Move to SD card" isn't ghosted, that app can be moved. Now, the amount of each app that will move varies from app to app.

    If you're rooted, you can move more apps. I wouldn't move things like Home apps and some widgets will stop working if you move the app.

    ...and don't move anything needed immediately on startup or while the SD card is mounted to a PC.

    Don't forget that cache and data also reside in the same space that apps use.
