Metro PCS LG Spirit 4G

I have no complaints about this phone what so ever. I got it about a week ago and love it. Pictures on this phone could be better but the video quality makes up for it. At least for me. My one and only problem with the LG Spirit is that I noticed that I was not able to move any of my downloaded apps to my SD card. They all go to the phone storage automatically and though the phone storage is 4 gigs I sure would like to have the ability to move my apps to my 16 gig SD card. I've tried all kinds of app to sd apps to no avail. Tried checking and messing with setting and no luck. If anyone know something or found a method please hit me up. Can use all the help i can get. Finding anything about this phone online is almost impossible. Only reviews...

LG phones are known to restrict moving apps to SD. I had an LG L5 and it's the same. You'll never be able to move the apps to the SD card even if you try to use apps from the Play Store--you'll need to have the phone rooted.

For rooting your lg spirit, has it. Make sure you temporarily disable your firewall before rooting and enable it when finished. It worked fine on my Windows XP computer. I don't think the rooting program is ported to Mac computers yet.

As for moving your apps to SD card on your Spirit, I think you have to do a bit of programming which is not that easy. I am in the process of trying it myself.

Good luck
