Eric Cartman, 18 Dec 2013Moving Apps to SD??? In some LG phones like the L9 you cannot move or install apps to your Sd... moreActually you can, using a certain technique. But this ONLY WORKS FOR ROOTED ANDROIDS! If you're not rooted, You can't free more memory. You'd also need an SDHC card for this process.
Moving Apps to SD???
In some LG phones like the L9 you cannot move or install apps to your Sd external card, thats a pain. you can only do this to apps that can use or not use the internal memory. Like for example, A Theme or Launcher app can be moved to your SD card and wont eat any space in your Internal Memory however if the app is moved or installed in your SD card then you'll just have to re- install it every time the phone is turned on or off so its better for these apps to stay in your internal memory. But there are some techniques or hacks that some people do inorder to do this action, but I believe it will only void your warranty and LG does not suggest their users to even Root their phones. If you wish to install more HD games and Apps then better buy a new phone with high RAM and Internal memory...

I have never had so much trouble unlocking a bootloader and I've unlocked some difficult phones. I may give it one more shot but I think there is a 99.9% chance of it not working. It doesn't help that LG removed fastboot.
Cyclohexane, 15 Oct 2013Avoid this phone at all costs. It is a bad design due to the inability to move apps to the SD... moreYes it's like this out of the box. However you can do the external 2 internal swap Very easily. Mine now has 32gb internal memory. The only complaint is some people are unable to unlock the bootloader, plus the process to do it is like surgery since you must flash a p760 kdz which inverts the screen and messes your touchscreen up. Once unlocked you flash a zip file to fix the screen issues. You are also able to oc the cpu to 1.2ghz which makes it fly!
Very bad service by lg dont buy lg products.Lg l9 was my first smartphone, within a week I realised that the battery backup is very poor,Lasts 3 hours max.I have been to the customer care centres(3 of them) 7-8 times over 5 months still my issue has not been resolved :(

You can't move apps to SD on Galaxy S3 or HTC One either. It's because moving apps to sd card caused a multitude of problems. Don't blame LG (Do blame them for the shitty memory though.)
Midknight, 19 Oct 2013Are you a product developer for LG? Im asking because i need help with this stupid phone and i... moreI'm not a developer. I just have a lot of experience with unlocking bootloaders and rooting. I got this device thinking it would be a step up from my previous LG G2X. I am so wrong. I want to toss this into a wood chipper.
If you need help though, there is a few guys over at xda that are much more knowledgable. There's omgbossis21, kuma82 and Lelus. Good luck!
Cyclohexane, 15 Oct 2013Avoid this phone at all costs. It is a bad design due to the inability to move apps to the SD... moreI agree with Cyclohexane - avoid the LG Optimus L9 P769. I find it to be more frustrating than it is worth - touchscreen inconsistencies compounded frustration. I also have an LG flatscreen that is excellent but will return this LG Optimus L9 P769.

Avoid this phone at all costs. It is a bad design due to the inability to move apps to the SD card and coming stock with such a small internal memory. It makes it impossible to enjoy many apps after you have used for awhile (texts, emails, contacts, fill up).
I am not going to go through all the steps and risk not being able to use phone, lose all contacts and apps (I have older version I want to keep and will lose with format), trouble of formatting / moving contacts, etc.
I have had older phones (and cheaper) that could move apps to SD card easily. What kind of moron at LG decided to do this? Was it motivated by greed?
I'll never purchase another LG product again (I have TVs and this is second phone). This turned me off forever. I'd love a return on my money but they won't give. I didn't know this was a problem until it was to late. Take my advice, avoid like the plague.
