    Ok, so this phone (and maybe all Jelly Bean devices?) will not let me store apps on the card, right? What I want to know is this: Is there an easy way to move everything possible to the card without rooting the device?

    Unfortunately No. Root is a must here because you can't even access where the apps are without rooting your phone. And for the record Android has had the ability to do apps to SD since Froyo(2.2) I believe. However for some strange reason Sammy decided not to include it in this build.

    My VZW Note 2 only has 16GB.(actual available is a lot less, of course) I do have a 64 GB Sandisk Micro SDXC card, but since the apps can't be installed there, it's of no use for that purpose. Rooting is not possible because I need to use my Note 2 to access corporate stuff.(rooted phones is blocked out)

    My Note 2 is now down to 1.3GB of available space because I have a lot of stuff on it. (including offline navigation that I need becasue most places that I drive to have zero voice or data signal from Verizon, or from any other carrier, for that matter)

    Is there another way around this problem beside rooting? Too bad Verizon doesn't sell a 32GB version.

    My advice, root your phone and use Divide. We block rooted phones as well but Divide seems to work around that problem. And it's free.

    The best way if you're rooted is to install a ROM (like the Jelly Bean's ROM) and apply the SD card swap to end up like this:
