    hello, for some reason, whenever i try to move an app to sd card i would get a message " not enough storage space" even though i have 120gb. How do i fix it so i can move stuff to my sd card?

    Welcome to Android Central! The SD card could be corrupt, defective, or counterfeit. Install SD Insight to see if the card is genuine or counterfeit. Counterfeit cards are programmed to report more storage than they actually have, and if you try saving more than the card can actually hold, then files can start getting corrupt.

    If it's a valid card, then go to Settings>Storage, Unmount the card, remove it, and insert it into your computer. Can the computer read these files? Backup as much as you can right now, then run chkdsk to look for bad sectors: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...d-sd-card.html.

    Hmm, strange. How much free Internal Storage does the phone report (not microSD)?

    Not sure why it's not letting you. Try wiping the cache partition: http://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-10404

    Hmm. You've tried moving different apps, and this happens with all of them?

    At this point, if this is really important to you, it may be time for a factory reset. If that doesn't work, then try reinstalling the firmware using Samsung Smart Switch (since firmware can get corrupted unexpectedly).
