[ Edited ]

Hi all, just new to my blackberry and got a 2GB sd card with it - have downloaded a load of apps to my new phone and then just installed a new 16 GB SD card and tried to download a new app this morning and it says dont have enough memory - (says i have 15 GB left on my set up so it is recognising it) can someone point me in the right direction to saving to SD card - is there a box i need to click to get them to save to the card and not the phone memory - thanks for any help

Found this article on the net from 2009...




Seems as if you are able to store apps on the sd card, but not "run" the apps from the sd card.


I havent been able to find more information than this...
