The short answer is that the Mormons kept moving in an attempt to find somewhere they could live in peace. From the very moment that Joseph revealed he had seen God, persecution against the Saints was almost incessant and became, at times, unbearable. This forms the prime reason for every major move made by the Saints, despite that there may have been other incidental accompanying factors.
Therefore, some of the other circumstances regarding each move were slightly different, despite the essence of generally, mounting persecution for a 'people different':
There were several factors behind the exodus of the Mormons to the western territories of the United States in the mid 1800s. The Church ofof Latter-day Saints, as the nicknamed "Mormon Church" is officially known, was organized on April 6, 1830, by a man named Joseph Smith. Latter-day Saints believe Joseph Smith was called as a prophet of God in our day to restore the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which had been lost from the earth.
Joseph Smith was persecuted heavily for declaring that he had seen a vision of God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. Those who believed him and joined the young church were also heavily persecuted. Over the course of about 15 years, the early Saints were driven from their homes multiple times. They moved states several times as well. An extermination order was issued by Governor Boggs in Missouri given other citizens the right to expel the Mormons from the state by whatever means they found necessary.
The Saints eventually thought they had found a safe haven in Nauvoo, Illinois, a city they had literally drained from the swamp and built up with their own hands and industry. Persecution continued to plague them, however, and angry mobs murdered Joseph Smith on June 27, 1844, in Carthage, Illinois, at the age of 38. Joseph Smith had been in the Carthage Jail on false charges waiting for his trial.
The situation the Saints found themselves in was unbearable. Before Joseph's murder, he shared with other church leaders that he had received revelation that the Saints should move West. Brigham Young was the next prophet called to lead the church. He and other church leaders organized a massive exodus which lasted several years. The first Saints left by covered wagon, later Saints used handcarts, and even later, other Saints travelled by train. Thousands of individuals trekked West seeking protection from the isolation the territory had to offer.
The first group of Saints entered the Salt Lake Valley inof 1847. Though persecution continued to find them, they were much more protected and able to defend themselves once they settled in the Utah Territory.
The Mormons moved west in search of a new home, not a new phone. Phones weren't even invented yet (this was in the 1840's). The Mormons had been persecuted and kicked out of Ohio, Missouri, and Illinois, so they went further west into what was then Mexico in search of a place where they could live in peace.
The Mormons moved to the west because they were trying to leave the United States. They had been kicked out of Ohio, Missouri, and Illinois, and thought they would try their luck in what was then Mexico. Also, Joseph Smith had prophesied a few years before his death that the Church would eventually move to the Rocky Mountains. Soon after the Mormons arrived there, the United States took over the area.
