Well there is no option in the phone to do this but if you are rooted and go onto the market and download "terminal emulator", its free you can easily change it.
Here are the Steps:
make sure usb debugging is checked
open terminal emulator and type "su" (press enter)
now type "pm getInstallLocation" (press enter)
it should say something like [auto]
this means the system decides which is best
to change it to internal just type the following command:
pm setInstallLocation 1 (press enter)
now its set to internal,
you change it anytime by using the "pm setInstallLocation" followed by a space and choosing any of the numbers
0 - auto (default)
1 - internal
2 - external
Here is what I mean..see attached.
When samsung advertised "16 gb" onboard memory, what they didnt tell you is that roughly 2gb(1.85 after formatting) is partitioned as "program" and the remaining 13.03gb(of the 16gb) is labeled as "internal storage". if you tell the device to move apps to phone, it puts them under "program".. my initial concern was that eventually the 1.85gb would become full and i would then be forced to load apps to the external sd.
so how can we utilize the 13gb internal sd storage for apps?
