Thanks for the fast answers. But really, I dont want to root a new phone, and I dont want to become a linux nerd - as much as I respect those

hahaha, rooting won't kill/harm your phone. unlocking the bootloader that's something else

I still don't know how come you can't move your apps to your SD card, of course, the apps that have a widget can't be moved to the SD card, unless you do the steps above
you can backup (check above) and then repair your phone. also go to settings -> about phone, check the Android version and build number

I know that rooting wont kill my phone
but I´d rather find out what is the reason for that strange behaviour (I have now instlled some never before used apps, some CAN be moved to SD one di it BY ITSELF!) before using any workaround. These apps SHOULD move to SD as they did on my NEO and my ARCHOS Tbablet. Something is very wrong here.
Btw - this forum censors the word "n_e_r_d"? Now, that´s funny

How in the WORLD do you transfer aps from your phone to SD card?? I'm sick to death of my phone running out of storage because hardly any apps can be moved onto the SD card - why is that? Only a handful of apps I have downloaded (Snapchat, Viber, IMDB) are on the SD card - I have a whopping 12GB free on my SD card but nothing left on my phone.
What are some non essential apps that can be disabled or cleared? This is the most annoying part of this phone.
