My sister got a tablet for Christmas which runs 4.0.4. The internal storage is measly, but she has a big enough SD card.

Going to Settings > Storage should give the option to set the 'Default storage location' to either internal storage or external SD card, but it doesn't. My phone (which runs the exact same firmware version) does have the option to do it.

What ways can I change the default storage location for Android 4.0.4? We're at our wits' end here.

Thanks in advance!

If the "DEFAULT STORAGE" is not showing there then you should use any third party application. App2sd,AndroidAssistant, CleanMaster or Link2SD should do this. But if your device is rooted you should definitely try Link2SD, with some few tweaks it automatically transfers all apps to sdcard. Hope that helps.
