    Change default storage to USB storage

    When I am downloading an app its getting downloaded onto my Device Memory which has a capacity of ~1.81Gb. Is there any way i could change the settings so that the downloaded apps could get stored in the USB storage of around 11.5Gb. Also i am trying to transfer the apps that i have downloaded to the USB storage, by going to Settings>Applications>Manage Applications and then clicking on the App i want to transfer like Facebook, but it has only one option as "Move to SD Card" even which is subdued, but some has the activated but when i click it this says Move Application failed as not enough memory maybe because i do not have an SD card. But is there a way i could transfer to the USB storage? please advise . thanks

    Ok first of all welcome. Second I would like to inform you that your device only has 2 places to store apps. The apps either get stored on the phone's internal ROM or on an SD card. If you have no SD then it cannot store to it. Also some apps can be moved and some cannot. They are first downloaded to the phone's ROM. You can get app2sd from the market after you buy an SD card. That will help move most apps to SD card. If you root your phone it will allow the movement of alot.

    Where are you located? The options and prices for SD storage vary by location and I don't want to link you to something that's not right for you.
