Hello,

I am the person that will be helping you today.

In order to free up internal memory, you must manually move the current applications on the device to the SD card. I have typed the instructions for you to follow, below.

- Tap the All apps icon > Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > In the downloaded applications tab, tap each application and do the following:
---> Tap the Move to SD card option.

Once that is all done, you will have a lot more empty space in the internal memory of the device.

I will be standing by, looking forward to your response.

Thank you,
Jason

You can only move apps that were downloaded. On that page, tap the Downloaded tab. All the apps on that page should be able to move to the SD card. Try moving a few to the sd card and update me on your status. Thank you.

After you click Manage Apps, look at the top of the cell phone screen. You don't see a Downloaded tab? You can only move apps to the SD card that you have installed.

After you click the Manage Apps item, you only see 4 things? (Gmail, Google Play, & Street view, and Voice search)
