What percentage of users have the problem? Ido not even want to try and calculate this, but it seems the number would be called 'negligible'

And you think this is the only thread on the entire internet about this issue? Do a Google search. There are lots of threads very similar to this one in various different Android, Galaxy SIII specific, or Carrier forums.

In the grand scheme of things, cards themselves also do not go bad all that often. Yes, they can, but not nearly to extent of what has been posted in this and other threads. And the fact that in many cases, people can put the card in a card reader after it messes up in the phone and reformat it gives me a good clue that the card itself is not going bad. Yes, some people get to the point where they can't even reformat the card with this issue, and that could be a bad card, but I see enough evidence to at least point to a possibility that it MIGHT be the phone causing the issue.

Are you a Samsung employee or something? Why are you so adamant that it CAN'T be a Samsung issue? What stake do you have in defending that it might not be a Samsung issue? Can it hurt for Samsung to at least investigate the issue?
