Did you try already doing this on your Computer? You should not have any issues, I have the same phone and that is what I do... Also you can use Kies for this...!

Try also going to My Files folder, then look for the folder where all the info is, then Tap on the bottom to the left of your phone (the one with 2 lines) and then Tap on move, the you select the files to move, and the last step is to select the folder to move the files... The phone should to the rest!
Lol thanks no I don't have a computer at the moment but I'm guessing with a USB I can transfer everything to the computer then the phones sd card our I need an sd reader on the computer? Can I pot all of the apps on it and then the phone will just read them off the card?

Most of the apps can be xfered to the SD CARD... Go to Task Manager, then make sure you are on the downloaded apps, then you TAP on the app you want to move to the SD CARD, then at the bottom right you will see a place to TAP that says Move to Phone/SD card...

For apps that appear greyed out, you may want to root your device and "force" apps onto your SD card. Link2SD and DroidSail SuperApp2SD work well for the most part. Be careful not to move System apps or apps that populate the Home screen with widgets. Removing these apps will cause the widget to stop functioning properly or the widget may disappear all together. The apps mentioned above, will show you which apps can be moved safely. ES File Explorer File Manager and Root Explorer (File Manager) are two powerful file managers I use. Rooting voids the manufacturer's warranty. Although minimal, you assume all risk. The rooting process is completely reversible. The procedure is fairly painless - see the example below. http://www.oneclickroot.com/phone/samsung-galaxy-ace-2/
