    I asked the my Sprint rep this question in the store.

    I'm not sure if this is the right answer but I was told that an app has to have the option to save to sd card

    when the software was written. He said some do and some don't.

    Also, he said that Samsung figures with the 16 gig internal memory (and 32 &64 gig for some lucky folks) that should be plenty of space for apps

    because you can save your music and photos on the sc card which frees up space in the phone for apps.

     

    I guess it depends on how many apps you want to put into the phone.

    I have put several in, including Facebook and I still have 10 gigs left.

    The 32 gig would have been all of our preferences but it wasn't available yet so we have to hope for now

    that the 16 gig will be enough. So far, it seems fine for me.

    that is ridiculous. i have Batman, N.O.V.A, NBA JAM and a few other games that requires about 1GB of data download after purchase.....How is he going to say that 16GB is plenty of space for apps??

     

    but yea, like gzusroxme stated...JB doesn't support apps2sd yet

    just got off the phone with sprint customer service, they said if the app is 1 gig or larger you can move it to SD card. if that is true! maybe it will help.

    That's untrue. You cannot on the S2 either, On the S2 it moves them to the internal usb storage but not to the removable SD card. It's the way Samsung has the phones set up, it has nothing to do with JB.

    Yeah, only way to have your SD card as an APP storage, is Rooting your phone :/.

    I do actually don't like to have to go to other means to obtain what i want, when it should of been right out of the box instead.

    It ****** me off.

    JELLYBEAN is "supposed" to be the most sophisticated version of the Android Operating System ever developed.  For it to not allow moving applications to the SD Card is asinine!  There's no logical reason why Google would purposefully omit such a basic function from their operating system, is there?
