    If you go to settings/applications/all applications you will see the Move to SD card button. Probably most of them will be grey however. In order to fix that, download Terminal Emulator from the Market and then with the hard keyboard type in the following:


    su (enter)
    cd /system/bin (enter)
    sh pm setInstallLocation 2 (enter)

    Now this will turn most of those buttons white and you will be able to move them to the SD card. Do not move any widgets to the SD card.

    It's also going to install any updates for your apps to the SD card from that point on. If you want to install something on the phone again run the same commands but change the 2 to a 1.

    To use terminal emulator you need to be rooted. Is terminal emulator force closing on you?

    Nope, that was my bad. I was thinking about the root but I meant to say SD card.

    So one more time…When you launch terminal emulator it's force closing. That would be correct because you are not rooted. You can't use terminal emulator.

    That doesn't seem to work on as many apps as I moved to my SD card as terminal emulator does.
