    Hi, I'm trying to help a friend, who is using a verizon LG Ally. He was complaining about running out of space after installing a bunch of apps. I offered to help and showed him how to access the application settings menu. However, once here I saw there was no "move to SD" option on ANY application. The option was not simply grayed out, as with many applications. Instead it was NOT there. I confirmed he has a 4GB SD card, and that it was mounted, because it let me unmount the card using the GUI. When I re-seated the card, it appeared as mounted again. If I remember correctly I think it was showing 3.7GB of the 4GB as free.

    Any thoughts?

    If the Ally is on 2.1 then it doesn't have that option. It's a FroYo exclusive unless you're rooted.

    Thanks. That must be it. He is running 2.1. Is Froyo not coming for the ally?

    Well 2.1 is froyo, but its a 2.2 market feature. There are rumors it will come to the ally, I don't know why it wouldn't. The ally seems a very capable phone. Its up to LG and VZW in the end though.

    2.0, 2.01, 2.1 and 2.1-update1 are Eclair

    2.2 is Froyo as is 2.2.1

    That's what I thought. :)

    Thanks, guys!

    I don't know if FroYo is slated for the Ally. It'd run on it, and run fine, but I don't know if LG is going to bother developing it. The Ally has a bad reputation and LG is probably looking to bury it with another phone rather than updating it. If you can ROM the Ally I'd suggest seeing if anyone has a 2.2 ROM. Then your friend can see if rooting and ROMing is for him. :)
